Stan Belland Passes

It is with a sad heart that we report the passing of Stan Belland. Stan was a significant contributor to the TC Motoring Guild. He was brought into the club by the other two Cambria Geezers, Bob McKarney and Clarence Weiss in the late 1970’s. The other two pre-deceased him, but Stan claimed that the twenty years the three of them ran around Cambria in their TC’s were some of the richest and most enjoyable years of his life.

Stan took some teasing about the time it took to get his TC operational, but he dove into the TCMG spirit with a vengeance. He was the club president for 4 years, vice-president for 7 years and handled programs for 5. He was a significant part of the Classic Chassis newsletter production for 8 years and was the recipient of our most coveted Frank Mason Award six times. He leaves his wife Esther, three children, five grandchildren and one great grand. He will be missed.

New Monthly Bonus Events Announced

In addition to our regular driving events, each month this year will have a bonus “do it yourself” tour. These tours will be in the spirit of our main events, keeping with the theme of each month’s activity. Bonus tours will be announced in the first half of each month, so be sure to keep an eye on the club calendar for updates!

Each bonus tour will also count for one point toward the Sargent Award, but will not be required activities to win an Iron Bottom Award. We hope you participate!

 

meetings

Join us on July 26 for our Zoom meting, featuring a fascinating presentation by TCMG member Rob Zucca.  Rob will be showing parts of his extensive collection of Civil War era artifacts and memorabilia including uniforms, firearms and much, much more.  You won’t want to miss this one!

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.

June recap: 26 members attended our June meeting, the annual Henkels Summer Picnic.  Seven TCs graced the driveway, driven by S. Simmons, Edgar, Hunsberger, Lemieux, Loe, Ramos and Spiegel. Very special thanks to Cindy Henkels for hosting the club yet another year.

Monthly Driving Events

On Saturday, May 28th, we will be heading north to the beautiful Heritage Valley for a day of gorgeous scenery, great driving roads and interesting destinations. We begin with a 30-mile scenic drive along smaller farm and country roads to our first stop, a real honey farm.  Here you can sample various honey products fresh from the farm and see how they are made. Products are all available for purchase in the farm store.

Our second stop is at the largest rose farm and nursery in the area for a tour of their spectacular walking gardens.  Then, a picnic lunch among the flowers.  Pack a picnic chair just in case we run out of seating.  This will be an afternoon in the country you won’t want to miss!

Watch for a flyer in the mail, as well as info in the upcoming newsletter.

April Recap: 10 members with 5 TCs and one modern participated in our April event. TCs were driven by Simmons, Edgar, Loe, Hunsberger and Zucca.

Monthly Bonus Events

In keeping with the theme of our upcoming May driving event, the bonus event this month will feature Bees. Your task is to photograph your TC with something relating to bees. We’re looking for creativity more than literally finding bees. The bigger stretch of the imagination of how your photo relates to “bees”, the better! Note the quotes around the word. Think outside of the box here. Your photo doesn’t have to have anything to do with insects.

Also remember to drive at least five miles during your photo shoot to receive one point toward the Sargent Award!

Have fun, and submit your photos to Joyce Edgar by May 21st to have your photo included in the slide show at our meeting on the 24th.

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.

2021 Holiday Party Announced

Our first in-person meeting since the pandemic started will be a return of our annual holiday party to be held on Sunday, December 5 in Granada Hills.  See the current newsletter for details on location, time and meal selection.

 

meetings

Our next general meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 16 (Note date change due to Thanksgiving). Kregg Hunsberger has a very unique TC, which was handed down to him from his father, an early hot rodder. 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.

October recap: 26 members and guests attended our October online meeting.  Three TCs were driven a simulated 10-mile journey to the meeting, driven by Loe, Lemieux and Hunsberger.  Very special thanks to Mike Simmons for an amazing presentation on eclipse chasing and other astronomical travels!

Late October

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.

(All Funkhana winners were driving the Edgar TC, as the others did not have a TC with them!)

 

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 August 24.  Our program for the evening is “Abingdon’s Last Days”.  TCMG member John Bowyer of Spring, TX. made a couple of trips to the Abingdon MG factory and has a large number of photos that were once the factory’s property, as well as memorabilia relating to the factory’s final years. Don’t miss this fascinating presentation, as you won’t see many of these items anywhere else!

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.

July recap: 21 members participated in our July meeting.  5 TCs were driven a simulated 10-mile journey by Loe, Lemieux, Simmons, Hunsberger and Zucca.

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

 

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.
