Join us on Friday, May 3 for a tour, picnic and Linda’s baked goodies!

From our meeting point in Westlake Village, we embark on a 15-mile scenic driving tour to the Stagecoach Inn Museum in Newbury Park. Built in 1876, the museum was originally a hotel and is now a historical landmark. Here we will enjoy a 90-minute guided tour of the museum, a schoolhouse built in 1888, and the blacksmith shop. Also see a pioneer home, a Mexican adobe and a Chumash dwelling, all representing different historical eras of the Conejo Valley.

After the tour it’s a short drive to the Simmons residence for a picnic lunch. Bring your picnic basket (or grab lunch to go) and dine in the garden! Desserts and beverages will be provided by Linda Simmons. For those interested, we will be performing basic TC maintenance tasks in the garage after the picnic. Watch for a flyer in the mail with details on meeting time and location.

NOTE: If you plan to attend this event (tour and/or picnic) please RSVP to Steve Simmons.

Edwin & Karen Pohle

As reported by Allan Chalmers, Karen had Parkinsons and had been getting progressively worse for a few years. Ed and Karen had moved from Squaw Valley to Auburn recently and Karen had to go into a care facility.  As part of our Northern contingent, Ed and Karen have been regulars at our annual Conclaves for many years as well as long-time active members of the Abingdon Rough Riders.

 

Joe & Pat Marcotte

Joe & Pat Marcotte

Also reported by Allan, Joe had gone into hospital the day after our annual meeting to do a fix on his knee replacement, and caught something that caused great breathing problems. He was on serious oxygen and finally the problem was too much for him. Also part of our Northern contingent, Joe and Pat have also regulars at our annual Conclaves for ages as well as long-time active members of the Abingdon Rough Riders.
 
Our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of both Karen and Joe.  They will be missed. 

 

meetings

Our next monthly meeting will be held on April 23 at our usual Studio City location.  Pete Thelander will be giving a talk on car collecting and restoration.  More details to follow so check back soon!

March recap: 19 members and guests attended our March meeting, with three TCs parked outside driven by Simmons, Mathison and Loe.  See the May newsletter to see the interesting facts learned about TCMG members at this meeting.  One fact just for a taste of the stories we were treated to was “I stood 3 miles from an A-Bomb blast”.

events

Join us on Friday, May 3 for a tour, picnic and Linda’s baked goodies!

From our meeting point in Westlake Village, we embark on a 15-mile scenic driving tour to the Stagecoach Inn Museum in Newbury Park. Built in 1876, the museum was originally a hotel and is now a historical landmark. Here we will enjoy a 90-minute guided tour of the museum, a schoolhouse built in 1888, and the blacksmith shop. Also see a pioneer home, a Mexican adobe and a Chumash dwelling, all representing different historical eras of the Conejo Valley.

After the tour it’s a short drive to the Simmons residence for a picnic lunch. Bring your picnic basket (or grab lunch to go) and dine in the garden! Desserts and beverages will be provided by Linda Simmons. For those interested, we will be performing basic TC maintenance tasks in the garage after the picnic. Watch for a flyer in the mail with details on meeting time and location.

NOTE: If you plan to attend this event (tour and/or picnic) please RSVP to Steve Simmons.

March Recap: 19 members and guests experienced the recent “super bloom” of poppies in Lancaster.  Four TCs were present driven by Loe, Simmons, Olson and Mathison.

Our next monthly meeting will be held on March 26 at our usual Studio City location.  The evening’s program will be a sequel to a program from eight years ago, where you will learn all kinds of fascinating things about your fellow TCMG’ers.  Facts like “The hospital bill for my birth was partially paid with potatoes”.  Also “I drove a TC through the Berlin Corridor in 1996” and “My father went to high school with Charles Lindberg.”  Don’t miss this entertaining evening of TCMG member history!

February recap: 23 members and guests attended our February meeting, with two TCs parked outside driven by Simmons and Loe.  Thanks to Richard Loe for his presentation on the many British cars in his collection, and thanks also to our special guest and ex-member Barney Jackson who was on hand to donate historical items from the early days of the club.

meetings

Our September meeting will be held on the 25th at our usual Studio City location.  The evening’s entertainment will include a once lost video entitled “Rally Round”.  This video comedy was made during the 18th Annual San Diego Double Day event in 1989 and was shot by Gayne and Doug Wimer with help from several other TCMG members. It depicts a “typical” navigational rally of the time and stars many long-time TCMG personalities, many who are still members today. See the exploits of Belland, Bundy, Chalmers, Coleman, Crandall, Lutz, Roth, Schnaer, Simon, Wilmer and Wimer as they compete to win in this totally oddball production recently re-discovered and digitized by Allan Chalmers.  Also included are lots of outtakes and behind the scenes footage that are just as entertaining as the video itself!

August Recap: 19 members and guests were present for our August meeting at the Simon museum.  Four TCs were present – Simmons, Edgar, Simon (Ron) and Simon (Dave). A huge thanks to all of the Simons for opening their museum, and to Dave for giving us a fun and fascinating celebrity history on the various cars in the collection.
