Early July

Posted by Steve Simmons on June 24, 2020


July Meeting Is Now Online

Our July meeting has been moved online in order to comply with COVID-19 social distancing regulations.  See below for details.

Upcoming Activity Cancellations

Because the safety of our members is our primary concern, several of our planned upcoming activities have been cancelled due to concerns over the COVID-19 virus.

  • Our general meeting July 28 has been changed from in-person to online. See below for details.
  • The organizers of GoF West have announced that due to Covid-19 concerns, the event will be postponed until next year.  Therefore our planned trip to Oregon this Summer to attend has also been cancelled. The event will be merged with GoF West 2021 at the same location.

Other upcoming activities may also be postponed or cancelled depending on what happens with the Covid-19 virus situation we’re experiencing.  Check this website for the latest updates and status of other upcoming TCMG activities.

Conclave Dates and Location Announced

The 64th Annual TCMG / ARR Conclave will be held October 3-5 (Saturday through Monday), in San Luis Obispo.  It will be hosted this year by ARR.  More information is forthcoming.



Our July meeting will be held online using the Zoom application, on July 28.  The meeting will begin at 6:00 PM PDT.  You can participate using any computer or device with the free Zoom software installed.  If you require assistance installing Zoom, contact Steve Simmons or David Edgar.

The evening’s program will be a slide show of “historical photos and places”.  Some of these will be photos submitted as part of the July “do it yourself event”, but may also include photos from those who can’t drive their cars or who no longer own a TC.  Such members are encouraged to submit photos from their history with their TC.  Any member can submit photos for the slide show and then share with the group what makes that photo significant in their history with the club or car.

Note that anyone making a simulated journey to the meeting in their TC by driving a minimum of 10 miles on the day of the meeting will receive a point toward the Sargent Award.

June recap: 35 members attended our June virtual (online) meeting.  Eight TCs drove a “simulated journey” to the meeting.  Those TCs were driven by Edgar, Hunsberger, Lemieux, Loe, Ockwell, Santarelli, Simmons and Zucca.

Our “Do it yourself” event for July is to drive to any local major or minor historical marker or site, photograph your TC at the site, and submit the photo along with a brief written description of the significance of the location (paragraph of no more than 150 words) for inclusion in the newsletter. Try to find a location with some sort of British connection, but anything will do since likely there are not many British related historical sites on the West coast. Perhaps our East coast members will be more likely to find something with a British tie. The intent is to drive your TC, get out of your house practicing social distancing, and inform other members about your area while staying within 20 miles of your home.  Please complete this task by July 12th and email your photo and paragraph to David Edgar.

June Recap: 11 TCs participated in our June scavenger hunt event.  Those who brought out their TCs were: Appell, Edgar, Einhorn, Hunsberger, Lemieux, Loe, Ockwell, Rocca, Simmons, Thelander and Zucca.

As always we are seeking photos for the Members Gallery showing you and your TC. We also welcome member biographies so your fellow TCMG’ers can learn a bit about you, your history with your TC or anything else you care to write about. Historic photos and stories are also being sought to expand our TCMG History section on the site. Please send what you have to Steve Simmons.
