Sunday Brunch

March 21st, 2017 | Posted in Event Reports

What a great turnout for brunch on a beautiful day.  I forgot to take the sign in book (early season mistake), but a rough count had at least 40 members  enjoying our first event of 2017. Welcome to Dennis & Sandy, new members, attending their first BMCU event.  Hope to see you a lot this season.

Thanks to Rob Foye for organizing the brunch and having MacCools prepped and ready for us.  Loved your announcements leading up to today.

After eating, Gary Lindstrom led many of us on a very nice drive, up Emigration Canyon.

That’s right, it’s time again for another weekend drive! Get your cars gassed up and ready to go!

There will be a drain and gain in Saratoga Springs at the Chevron on Redwood Road around 11:00am. We will be heading to Eureka for a nice lunch at B’s Hangout. The forecast calls for some rain and 49 degrees, a perfect British day.

McCool’s Brunch, March 19 11 am

March 19th, 2017 | Posted in News

This Sunday at 11 am at MacCool’s in Foothill Village in SLC, the British Motor Club of Utah will commerate one of Britain’s most famous persons – yes, St Patrick was British, not Irish.

Other important distinctions include the difference between the shamrock (three leaves) and the four-leaved clover.  Botanically, shamrocks (several species) are Trifolium clovers with three leaves. In Ireland shamrocks with three leaves are associated with St Patrick and the Trinity while the 4-leaved clover in our culture is associated with good luck.

Regardless, decorate your LBC with some green stuff; three leaves, four leaves, or no leaves and let’s show off our LBCs in their best finery this Sunday at 11 am.  Drive to follow brunch?

Planning meeting/Potluck Dinner Feb 4

January 10th, 2017 | Posted in News

The first event for our 2017 season is coming up.  It is our Potluck Dinner and Planning get together.

The Potluck Dinner will be held on Feb 4th, at 6pm, at the South Valley Unitarian Universalist Society church, 6876 S. Highland Dr., Cottonwood Heights, UT.   This is the church where we’ve held our last two Potluck Dinners, so, many of you will be familiar with this location.  

There is plenty of paved parking, ramps into the building, an elevator for those who have problems with stairs, a kitchen to do minor prep and/or clean up, and tables and chairs enough to seat everyone.  The room has been renovated since last year and is even more user friendly.   Come and check it out while seeing old friends, learn about the upcoming season and have some great food to eat.

Rumor has it that there may be a couple of different chili’s to sample.   How about it Pugs and Jim S.?   Still remember how to make chili?  Yes, the gauntlet has been thrown!

Impromptu drive brought many of us out

November 20th, 2016 | Posted in Event Reports


When we first thought to do an impromptu drive/brunch on Thursday night, we figured that we may have three or maybe four people show up.   With only the 24 hour notice, our expectations were not very high.

What happened was AMAZING!!!    At my last count, there were at least 15 LBCs and probably a few more that I didn’t count.   We even had three new members join us: John and Daphne in their beautiful Triumph Spitfire and Ed Schuyler in his immaculate Sunbeam Alpine!!!   As predicted, the weather was perfect for the drive along Wasatch Blvd to Draper.  There were so many of us, that I actually had to have a drivers meeting before we left Smith’s parking lot.   One of the items suggested by Jill, was that when we arrive at Penny Ann’s, if the place is jammed, we will go across the parking lot to the Corner Bakery.

Her forethought saved the day.  When we pulled into the parking lot at Penny Ann’s, there were lots of people standing around outside waiting to get in and there was no parking anywhere close to the restaurant.   So, the group continued through the lot to the Corner Bakery where there was plenty of space for our “mobile car show.”   Inside, we took over the western section of the restaurant and the Corner Bakery folks made us feel right at home and quickly served everyone.

After a tasty brunch, we conversed in the parking lot before setting out on our own routes toward home.   Several of us ran out to the Maverick station, kitty corner across I-15 from the State Prison and topped off our tanks with ethanol free gasoline.

Thanks to all that showed up to have Saturday brunch with us.

Keep an eye on these emails and our Facebook page, for you never know when someone is going to plan another IMPROMPTU DRIVE.
