Remembering Leo Pedersen

One of our long time members Leo Pedersen has passed away, leaving a big hole in our group of intrepid TC enthusiasts.  Leo along with his wife Martha was a regular at our northern events including annual Conclaves and was loved by all who were fortunate enough to know him.  His humor and wit, not to mention willingness to share his vast knowledge and experience about MGs will be sorely missed.

Read more about Leo’s life and M.G. travels in the December 2021 newsletter.

Major changes to the TC include a flathead V8-60 installed in 1950 along with many other modifications done in that time period. Kregg will details these changes and give us a glimpse into a time capsule from an era when cars like TCs were viewed differently than they are today.

The meeting starts at 6:00 PM (Pacific).  Members may join 15 minutes early.

Note that anyone making a simulated journey to the meeting in a TC by driving a minimum of 10 miles on the day of the meeting will receive a point toward the Sargent Award.

meetings

Our next monthly meeting will be held via Zoom on October 26.  TCMG member Mike Simmons has offered to give us an astronomy based travelogue program. He has had the opportunity of traveling to different countries and seeing how a common interest in astronomy brings people together. We all observe the same sky and are on the same planet. Mike has been an amateur astronomer and eclipse chaser for more than 40 years. He has worked at observatories and created worldwide programs to elucidate the wonders of the Universe. His passion for total solar eclipses has taken him to the Middle East, a mountain in the Andes, and other interesting locations. He has led eclipse tours, and he started his own astronomy-related tour company in early 2020 just in time to be temporarily put out of business by the pandemic. Mike will explain the extraordinary experience of a total solar eclipse, how it’s so much more than a few minutes of darkness, why you should travel into the Moon’s shadow yourself, and why there are people who spend their lives following that shadow.

The meeting starts at 6:00 PM (Pacific).  Members may join 15 minutes early.

Note that anyone making a simulated journey to the meeting in a TC by driving a minimum of 10 miles on the day of the meeting will receive a point toward the Sargent Award.

September recap: 23 members participated in our August meeting.  4 TCs were driven a simulated 10-mile journey by Loe, Lemieux, Hunsberger and Thelander.  Thanks to Allan Chalmers for a glimpse into the restoration of his MG TA!

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

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.

 

meetings

Our next monthly meeting will be held via Zoom on September 28.  Our program for the evening is a talk and slide show by member Allan Chalmers about the restoration of his MG TA .

The meeting starts at 6:00 PM (Pacific).  Members may join 15 minutes early.

Note that anyone making a simulated journey to the meeting in a TC by driving a minimum of 10 miles on the day of the meeting will receive a point toward the Sargent Award.

August recap: 25 members and one guest participated in our August meeting.  2 TCs were driven a simulated 10-mile journey by Loe, and Edgar.

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

 

events

On Sunday, September 12, TCMG member Rob Zucca will lead a special tour of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library’s newest exhibit, “FBI: From Al Capone to Al Qaeda”.

Special parking for TCs has been arranged adjacent to picnic tables where we will have a picnic lunch. Bring your own picnic basket or purchase food at the library cafe.

events

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!

TCMG Mourns The Loss Of Toni Appell

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.
 

meetings

Our general meeting on March 23 meeting will be held online using the Zoom application.  The meeting will begin at 6:00 PM Pacific Time. (You can log on starting at 5:45 PM).  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 model TC contest.  Make one of the Moss Motors paper models and have it ready to display at the meeting, or send Joyce photos of it at least two days prior to the meeting.  The model is available for download (print it at home) by clicking here. (Link NLA)

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.

February recap: 29 Members attended our February meeting.  Six TCs were driven a simulated trip to the meeting of 10 miles or more.  Those who drove were Hunsberger, Jones, Lemieux, Loe, Simmons and Zucca

events

The wildflower tour returns for 2021!  On Saturday, March 20 our adventure will take us on a scenic tour to the California Poppy Reserves in Lancaster.  The blooms look to be sparse this year, but we will still enjoy the driving tour and a picnic lunch at a nearby nature park.

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.

February Recap: 16 members took part in our Lame Duk Kup event, which was held online due to Covid concerns.  Five TCs made a simulated journey of at least 10 miles, and were driven by Edgar, Hunsberger, Loe, Simmons and Thelander.  Congratulations to John Bowyer for winning the Lame Duk Contest!
