From The Drivers Seat



.In December, the club had it’s annual Christmas Party on Saturday, December 16  It was well attended, but there was room for more of you to attend. Next year, it will again be at the Phoenix Club in the Lorelei (Fireside) Room. Date is unknown at this time.  And, we will be collecting toys for children. David Moore is in charge of that.

January brings with it the annual Trees and Trains event, at Bob Spellmire’s home in Huntington Beach. Date is Saturday, January 6. There will probably be a tour associated with the event. Bring your train, or at least locomotive, to run on Bob’s track. 

February will have the Super Bowl LII Party, on Sunday, February 4. Location is the Thelander’s home, in Westminster. Garage Tech Sessions could start up again in February  or March, depending on how the weather looks, as well as scheduling.

Next year should see the club visiting Lew Webb’s car collection, in south Orange County, with lunch somewhere afterwards.  There also has been talk of a beach party, as well as some other possible events, but nothing firmed up at this time. Contact Rick Pullen or Dave Gaston, if you have an idea for an event. They will help you to put one on.

We used to do a lot of breakfast runs. Breakfast runs can be added to a month’s already scheduled event, as not everyone can make the monthly event date. It can be a driving tour, or a rally with questions. They are easy to put on. Step up to the plate, and plan on putting one on

To add to that, every Saturday (just about) at 12:30 p.m., a group of members meet at the Jagerhaus in Anaheim for lunch. A great brain trust, and the greatest topics of discussion. (other restaurant patrons have told us so). Jerry Felper, Carl Cederstrand, Gary Crow, Charles Lusch, and myself generally attend. And, twice a month, at the Olde Ship in Santa Ana, we get together for dinner, on Mondays at 6:30 p.m.

Volunteerism is the key to an organization’s success! We are not in need of anyone to fill a board position right now. Positions could be available next year. As the Star Trek crew gave way to Star Trek: The Next Generation, the next generation of VMG volunteers needs to come forward. Please consider taking a board position for at least one year. While it looks like we have a lot going on, we can always use club members to volunteer. Positions are opening up on the board, and we would love to see new faces become active there.

Rick Pullen and Dave Gaston have events, that just need someone to host. Kaz and Judy Bielinski are working on a driving event for the year 2018. Rick Pullen and Dave Gaston can help you plan a driving event. Just ask them.

Until next month,

John Seim
