Summer Tour 2018

–Friday, August 24th

Our old cars benefit from being driven, and what a special opportunity! This special collection is open to us by the invitation of the owner. See over 150 beautifully restored antique cars at The NB Center for American Automotive Heritage, the private collection of car enthusiast Nicola Bulgari. (See Sept.-Oct. 2016 Gas Buggy Gazette for our interview with him.) Spend time in the grand lodge building; tour the buildings full of cars. The cars are primarily from the 1930’s and 1940’s, with care and expense lavished on models that collectors sometimes overlook. Visiting on Friday, we will see restoration going on, making the visit more interesting.

We will be taking back roads and 2-lane highways all the way, making the drive relaxing. We’ll start our tour at Flinchbaugh’s Orchard and Farm Market, 110 Ducktown Road, Hallam, Pa. (east of York and west of Wrightsville). Arrive there 8 a.m. or after, buy breads, snacks, coffee etc. in their farm market if you please, and we’ll depart promptly at 9 a.m. We’ll stop mid-way at the Dutch Way Restaurant in Myerstown, Pa. for a delicious buffet lunch. The distance to Allentown is 100 miles, and after a full, fun day, everyone should be home well before dark. (For anyone who would like to make it even more relaxing and spend the night, driving back home on Saturday, call John Sayler at 717-796-1895 for a list of near-by motels.) Send no money: Affordable meal costs are on your own. The cut-out response sheet is an insert in the May-June issue of The Gas Buggy Gazette. Deadline to sign up for the tour is August 12.

Ladies Day Cancelled

Ladies Day has been cancelled for May 19th due to the rain which just won’t seem to let up. We’re really sorry for the inconvenience and for the late notice. We kept watching the weather and holding out hope, but alas, it seems more storms will push through tomorrow.

Covered Dish Deadline: March 6th

Held at the East Berlin Community Center at 1:00 pm on Sunday, March 11. Please bring a dish to share with fellow members. Spend the day enjoying excellent homemade food along with some great camaraderie.

This year we will be setting up a table for pictures. Dig around in your old albums and bring a few interesting photos, car or club related, of you, your spouse, or one of your past vehicles.

After dinner, either Bingo will return, or we will have a game-show type quiz. Details are still being worked on.

Your donation of a small inexpensive door prize is welcomed, though not required. There will be several very nice club-sponsored door prizes!

Deadline for sign-up is March 6. The event is FREE. For more info. contact Ron or Valerie Green (717) 443-3903 cellular, or e-mail ron.green@comcast.net.

January 9, Board Meeting & Latimore Show

This is just a note to remind everyone that our board meeting on January 9th will be immediately followed by a discussion on the 2018 Latimore Car show. It may seem a bit early to start thinking about June, but it’s already time to finalize some things like artwork and flyers.

If you’d like to volunteer your services or have some ideas to contribute, please join us! We have two new co-chairs this year, Ken Buohl and Bob Schultz, so come out and show your support.

And let’s hope the snow passes us by.

Sundaes at the Movies

This year, our annual ice cream social is on a Sunday, January 21st and we have a new location: Dover Fire Hall, 30 East Canal Road. We’ll begin promptly at 1:00 p.m.

This fun event is an opportunity to get out of the house and shake off the mid-winter blues. Members will enjoy delicious ice cream with all the toppings, and we’ll also be treated to some very old Gettysburg Region films, as well as a slideshow of 2017 events.

Wear a hat, please: something new or old or silly. We will also hold our door-prize drawings, so please bring a nice door prize—something car-related, or just fun.
