Since most weather reports are telling us to expect a fair amount of snow this Tuesday, March 14th, please note that the board meeting has been cancelled! Stay home, drink some hot cocoa, and be safe. We still plan on having a Founders Tour meeting on the 23rd.
Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. I know everyone is busy this time of year but it is also when we have to kick the planning into high gear. We have already had numerous phone calls about the tour from all over the U.S. and Canada.
We will have a meeting on Dec. 5th at 6pm at EMMR. Please respond to Annette Yost (410) 635-2530 so that she knows you received it and so she have an idea who is coming. Bring your thinking caps. A lot of work has been going on getting the book formatted. We will discuss costs, advertising, parking and logistics, hospitality,… the whole nine yards… we need you there!
It might seem a bit early to be thinking of January events, but mark your calendar now! Information on next year’s (just 2 months away) Sundaes on Saturday event has been added.
When? January 21st at 1:00 p.m.
Where? Mt. Holly Springs Church of God
Why should you come? Ice cream, raffle, and a new glove contest!
The registration form can be found in the next issue of the Gas Buggy Gazette. For a full description, visit our Events Calendar.
The following was taken from a letter received by one of our club members from the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration:
“Effective October 1, 2016 [emphasis added], Maryland law regarding Historic Motor Vehicles will change. The changes impact how a Historic Motor Vehicle may be operated. A Maryland registered historic vehicle may no longer be used for transportation to and from employment, school, or for commercial purposes. In addition, historic vehicles with a model year of 1986 or newer may be subject to safety equipment repair orders issued at roadside by law enforcement.”
You can find more information on the MVA website.
The Fall tour this year will be an overnighter. October 13 – 14.
It takes place in the Bedford area and starts on Thursday October 13th. It is limited to thirty cars. We need your registration IN OUR HANDS by September 15th. We blocked thirty rooms at the Quality Inn in Bedford at $105.00 including all taxes and breakfast on Friday morning. Additional charge of $10.00 would apply for each person over two per room. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN RESERVATIONS. These must be made prior to September 30th. All meals are paid “on your own”. A list of restaurants will be available.
Travel will be on the turnpike and PA 30. We ran the turnpike at sixty mph and no one ran over us. There are hills on Route 30 so have your vehicle in road-worthy condition.
Sights for enjoyment will include museums, shopping (wonderful candy/popcorn to antiques), road trip with various points of interest, and keep your finders crossed, a private car collection (the owner rarely shares his collection…and we have not received a NO…we are hoping for a YES). Walking will be required and some places the “buddy system” might be required when traveling by car because of limited parking.
This is a beautiful area, especially during this season. Even the scenery along the turnpike is awesome. The cost to register will be minimal, as lodging and meals are not an “up-front” cost. Further details will be in the July/August newsletter. Mark your calendar now.
