TCMG Expands In-Person Activities

Since returning to in-person driving events in March, we have adapted to offer fun and safe activities for our members.  Scenic drives and picnics have become a common activity, which is reminiscent of the early days of the club.  Our faces may have aged a little over the years but the cars still look as young as ever!

On June 22, the first in-person meeting since the pandemic started was held at the Henkels home.  2020 was the first time this annual picnic was canceled since the first one over 25 years ago, but fortunately we were able to hold it again this year.  Further adapting to current events, we experimented with a live web broadcast of the meeting which went well.  Members who we not able, or not comfortable attending in person were able to talk to those at the picnic and see the TCs on display.

It’s back! On August 14! Once again a TC outing you will relish. The almost annual Einhorn Frankfurter Festival. Big Vienna natural casing (to get the snap) hot dogs made in Chicago by Chicagoans and flown 1,700 miles west to get into the hands and mouths of people who own little cars. Topped with mustard, Kelly green relish, onions and celery salt. Please do not ask for Ketchup.

This is a definite RSVP event because of seating and dogs. You won’t want to be standing and be holding an empty bun. All RSVPs must be given by August 6. RSVP to Larry Einhorn (see directory for email address).

A driving tour will precede the main event. Details on the tour are forthcoming.  Contact Richard Loe for more information.

July Recap: 14 members took part in our July event at GoF West.  Several TCs made the journey to Mount Hood, Oregon.  Those who drove the journey were Loe, Thelander and Lemieux (broke down en route) with others arriving on trailers.

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. To join the meeting via Zoom, click this link on June 22 any time after 6:45 PM: https://zoom.us/j/6234447498

May recap: 32 Members attended our May meeting. 5 TCs were driven a simulated trip to the meeting of 10 miles or more. Those who drove were Hunsberger, Lemieux, Loe, Simmons and Zucca.

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. To join the meeting via Zoom, click this link on June 22 any time after 6:45 PM: https://zoom.us/j/6234447498

May recap: 32 Members attended our May meeting. 5 TCs were driven a simulated trip to the meeting of 10 miles or more. Those who drove were Hunsberger, Lemieux, Loe, Simmons and Zucca.

For more meeting and event information, visit the Calendar Page.

 

events

A visit to the Autry Museum is planned for Saturday June 5th. No guided tours are being scheduled at this time, therefore we will each explore at our own pace. Meet at the museum at 9:45 AM. At about 11:30 we will regroup in the parking lot to tour to the Tam ‘O Shanter for lunch. Reservations have been made for the maximum amount of 24 inside the restaurant (4 tables of 6), therefore this is an RSVP event, first come first served.  Please RSVP to Richard Loe if you plan to attend.

Autry entry fee is $14 for adults (AAA members $12.50) and $10 for students & seniors. Masks are required. The cafe remains closed.

TCMG Mourns The Loss Of Toni Appell

Mel & Toni AppellWith a deep sense of loss, we are saddened to report the passing of Toni Appell, a long time member and caring friend to all who were fortunate enough to meet her.  Mel and Toni spent many years touring in their TC and frequenting club meetings, always with a smile and a good story to tell.  They joined TCMG in 1990 and soon became stalwarts of the club.  Her positive and caring personality was infectious, and she will be dearly missed.

Services will be held on Sunday, February 7.  Due to Covid restrictions, the service will be broadcast on Zoom for general attendance.  See the group email list for details.

TCMG Mourns The Loss Of Toni Appell

Mel & Toni AppellWith a deep sense of loss, we are saddened to report the passing of Toni Appell, a long time member and caring friend to all who were fortunate enough to meet her.  Mel and Toni spent many years touring in their TC and frequenting club meetings, always with a smile and a good story to tell.  They joined TCMG in 1990 and soon became stalwarts of the club.  Her positive and caring personality was infectious, and she will be dearly missed.

Services will be held on Sunday, February 7.  Due to Covid restrictions, the service will be broadcast on Zoom for general attendance.  See the group email list for details.

First TCMG Online Tech Session Held

A tech session on carburetor issues was held in January on the Zoom application, and is available for viewing by TCMG members.  Check the group email list for instructions on how to view, or contact Steve Simmons.

Gather at 9:30 AM at the Castaic McDonald’s at the Lake Hughes off ramp from the 5 Freeway. Our destination will be the Arthur B. Ripley Woodland State Park where we will have a picnic lunch. Participants should bring their lunch and portable chairs to facilitate social distancing during lunch.
