Late February

Posted by Steve Simmons on February 9, 2020


Conclave Dates Announced

The 64th Annual TCMG / ARR Conclave will be held October 3-5 (Saturday through Monday), and will be hosted this year by ARR. The location is not yet announced.



Our next monthly meeting will be held on February 25 at our usual Studio City location.  The program for the evening will consist of a documentary on the evolution of the automobile.  See how technologies spanning 9,000 years led to what we have today, from the invention of the wheel to the Model T, to self driving vehicles.

January recap: 17 members and guests attended our January Meeting.  Three TCs were present, driven by Loe, Simmons and Lemieux.  Thanks to Gene Olson for putting on another fun game night, where despite the female team’s creative (and encouraged) cheating, the men managed to pull off a tie!

We will meet at and tour the Lanterman House in La Canada Flintridge on Wednesday, March 4th. This craftsman home was designed by Arthur Haley in 1915 for Dr. Roy Lanterman and his wife Emily. The property stayed in the Lanterman family until the two bachelor sons, who had continued to live in the house, died in the 1980s. At that point the home was given to the City of La Canada Flintridge. Therefore, the original amenities, furniture and decor remain. Dr. Lanterman was interested in the latest technology and the home has many period examples that reflect this, for instance this is the first residence west of the Mississippi built of reinforced concrete. One Lanterman son was a State Assemblyman and the other was an inventor who designed custom components for high performance vehicles. Fee for the tour is $3 for seniors or students and $5 for adults.

After the tour we will caravan to the historic Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Fountain in South Pasadena for lunch. A woman entrepreneur had the building constructed and started the business in 1915. The menu is diverse with extravagant fountain desserts.  See the March newsletter for further details, or contact events chair Richard Loe.

February Recap: 14 members and guests took part in our Lame Duk Kup event.  Four TCs were present, driven by Loe, Hunsberger, Simmons and Spindler. A fifth TC driven by Lemieux returned home due to a misfire. Congratulations to Cliff Lemieux for winning the Lame Duk trophy!
