TC Motoring Guild Rides Again!

On Saturday, March 20, TC Motoring Guild held its first group event since the pandemic halted in-person activities one year prior.  15 members and guests with six TCs participated in the event, which was originally scheduled to visit the California Poppy Reserves.  Due to high winds, bitter cold and no poppies, a change was made the day before the event and the group instead headed west from our meeting point in Castaic.  Driving along scenic roads, our new destination was Heritage Valley where we viewed captive flowers instead of wild ones at a nursery with an astounding array of rose varieties.  A socially distanced picnic lunch topped off the day at a nearby park, in perfect weather. 

Continuing with our Covid-safe activities, April saw an even larger turnout with 28 members and eight TCs taking a historic home tour through the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, followed by a “picnic beneath the oaks” at Gene Olson’s residence.  May’s event took the group into the San Gabriel Mountains for a picnic lunch and driving tour.  It’s good to be back in the saddle!

 

meetings

Our return to in-person meetings will begin with the much anticipated Summer Picnic Meeting at the Henkels home in Pasadena on June 22! Bring a picnic dinner and dine under the stars at this annual favorite. Dessert will be provided by our hostess. Those driving TCs or equally interesting classics (tall order) get preferred parking in the driveway. Meeting starts at 7:00 PM. Local members will receive an invitation in the mail. As a courtesy to our hostess Cindy Henkels, please be sure to RSVP.

LIVE WEB BROADCAST: This in-person activity will be broadcast on Zoom.  Members who are not able to attend in person can log on starting at 6:45 PM for social chat with live attendees and to view the meeting portion of the picnic as it happens.
