Conclave is coming!
The 59th Annual TCMG / ARR Conclave will be held October 9-11 in Cambria. Check the Calendar Page for details. Don’t miss this annual tradition!
New Regalia Items
Check out our Regalia Page for new regalia items! We have recently added two jigsaw puzzles to our regalia offerings. These are the same puzzles featured in our annual Puzzle Night competitions! They feature the lineups from our 2013 and 2014 TCMG / ARR Conclaves. Quantities are limited, so buy yours before they are all gone!
Note location change! Our annual movie night on September 22 has moved back to our regular Montrose location this year. The presentation will be part one of a two-part program on Route 66, a road that has captured the imagination of generations, both home and abroad. In this video, you will travel the “Mother Road” with noted author and highway historian Michael Wallis as he revisits the tourist spots and quaint motels, secret corners and little towns made famous by his popular book.
Thanks to David Reid and Terry Schuller for a fascinating look at the technology and methods of underwater photography!
Our next event on September 12 takes us to the Gene Autry Museum for a special exhibit on the Civil War in the Western states. “Empire and Liberty” is the first major museum exhibition to examine the American Civil War from the vantage point of Westward expansion. Explore an array of more than 200 artifacts, including Texas slave sale documents, Andrés Pico’s war drum, the battle flag carried by soldiers of the California Hundred, a Buffalo Soldier’s revolver, and Cherokee General Stand Watie’s bowie knife. This exhibition shows how the Civil War was more than a clash between the North and South; it was part of a history of how America would expand.
After the exhibit we will enjoy lunch (of course!), and afterward for those interested there will be a showing of a Civil War movie starring Errol Flynn. The film is free with your museum admission. Look for a flyer in the mail with details on meeting time and location, etc.
August event recap: Five TCs and 18 members and guests took part in our tour of the Adolfo Camarillo House in August. TCs were driven by Loe, Buckeridge, Simmons, Einhorn and Crandall.
