Late July

Posted by Steve Simmons on July 13, 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.
  • The Einhorn hot dog party in August has been cancelled, and a social distancing event has taken its place. See the Calendar Page for details.

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.



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 August “social distancing” event will be a self guided drive in your TC between August 1st and the 16th. The weather is perfect for an evening toot to your favorite local restaurant. You may not feel comfortable stopping to eat, but take a picture with your TC in front and submit it with a short paragraph explaining why it is your “go to” eating place. It could be because it is the popular neighborhood hangout or maybe it’s a hole-in-the-wall with excellent food.

To participate, email your photo and description to newsletter editor David Edgar by August 16th.  To qualify for Sargent points, you are on your honor to drive your TC at least 10 miles and to submit an unaltered photograph with your paragraph.

July Recap: 13 TCs participated in our July “Historical Hunt” event.  Those who brought out their TCs were: Chalmers, Eicher, Edgar, Einhorn, Hunsberger, Lemieux, Loe, Page, Pulver, Simmons, Spiegel, Sullivan and Zucca.

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.
