The 53rd annual conclave was held October 2-4 at Cambria Pines Lodge. In attendance were 18 cars (16 TCs and 2 TAs).  Friday night’s hospitality was held in the Simmons’ room where a huge spread of food and drink was set up by Linda Simmons.  On Saturday morning a driver’s meeting preceded an Olive Oil Tour and question rally through wine country, stopping at several places before returning to Cambria.  The first stop was so enjoyed by all that most of the group was there for an hour and a half!

Along the route were small markers featuring TCs with varying features.  Participants were told to look for them in preparation for a questionnaire that evening.  Questions included such treachery as “How many TCs had dogs driving them?” to which most people answered five, after seeing five markers showing a TC with a dog sitting at the wheel.  The correct answer was zero, since dog’s can’t drive cars.  A tie breaker question ended the competition with Gene and Karen Olson winning top honors.

The banquet dinner was held in the hotel restaurant.  Table centerpieces were models of London Bridge with cutout photos of TCMG and ARR members driving their TCs across the bridge, and distance signs to L.A. and San Francisco.  Also included in the festivities was a surprise slide show by Don McLish of old TC club and event photos.
