No Fairview run, now heading to Antelope Island instead on April 22

We have a change in our schedule. THE FAIRVIEW/HELPER RUN WILL NOT BE HELD ON APRIL 22.

The weather over the Skyline Pass has been determined to not be LBC friendly, at this time.

Instead, we will be substituting a run to Antelope Island on that date, 22 April. We have not been to the Island for a couple of years, so this will be a good time to make the run.

The SL and points South meeting place is now Warm Springs Park parking Lot on 300 West and approximately 800 North in Salt Lake City, behind a large brick building.   This used to be the Children’s Museum.

Gather, on April 22, at the Warm Springs Park lot at 9:30am for a 10:00am departure for Antelope Island.  We will take 100% surface streets with speeds not exceeding 55 mph and most in the 35-45 mph range.   This is a great drive if you, like me, are a fan of lower speeds and closer to home events.

Northerners, meet at the lot just west of Burger King in Layton (2010 N Main)  This is in the Northwest corner of the Antelope, Main St intersection.  We will all meet there at approximately 11am.   From there it is a quick jaunt to Antelope Island.   Remember, Antelope Island is a Utah State park and there is an admission fee; $10/car or $5/car for seniors.    

Bring your lunch for our picnic at the Garr Ranch.  There are no concessions at the ranch, so bring what you’d like to drink, also.

The views of the Wasatch Front are spectacular from Antelope Island.  Be sure to bring your camera for pictures of the bison that are often close to or on the road!

So what will we be learning about Well Denis will be doing a demo on body leading a fast becoming a lost art since bondo hit the scene. You will also be able to gaze at an on going frame up restoration of a tr6 and what it takes to sand blast and paint a MG TD frame. Then Rich will show how he makes that delaminating dash board look just like the factory just installed it. And if that’s not enough I invite any one that would like to do a demonstration of any thing they feel the group would like to enjoy.

Let Rich know if there is any problem you have you would like to get some information on I’m sure we can find lots of guys with input. Also bring out all those parts left over or bought by mistake and lets swap them off or find a good home for them.

There is plenty of parking So bring your LBC and lets have a informal little car show for my neighbors.

McCool’s Brunch, March 19 11 am

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?
