Planning meeting/Potluck Dinner Feb 4

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

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!

Fall Color Tour, Saturday October 1

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

OK, let’s admit it.  The weather guessers have no idea what the weather is going to be like on Saturday.  I listened to three weather reports and received three different forecasts.   Come prepared.  I’m going to RainX my windshield.  That is usually adequate to drive AWAY any nearby precipitation!

Here’s what we’re doing:    This Saturday, Oct 1, members from SLC and points south, meet on the EAST side of the State Capitol at 9am for a 9:30am departure, north to Ogden and Rainbow Gardens.   We will take a route that avoids freeways, but is efficient to get us to the meeting location for those from the north.

The northerners will meet at Rainbow Gardens (mouth of Ogden Canyon, see attached map) where we’ve met previously, at 10:30am.  After the two groups congregate and have a humanities break, at approximately 11am, Pat & Donna will lead us the rest of the way up the scenic route to our picnic spot in the Monte Cristo Pass.

Please remember that this event is BYOL. (Bring Your Own Lunch)   Hey, if you wanted a free lunch, you should have shown up on the Alpine Loop Tour a couple of weeks ago!    BTW, If you weren’t there, you missed a great drive and tasty lunch.

If you are wanting club shirts, key fobs, or any of our merchandise, bring your cash as Rich will have boxes of BMCU products for sale.  Everyone does have a BMCU decal on their window, don’t they?

Rumor has it that since this is our LAST scheduled driving event, there will be drawings for really cool prizes, also.

Cruise-In at the Garage Grill, 9/26

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

OK, sports fans.  Looks like the weather is going to cooperate and give us great temps for the Monday evening Impromptu Cruise-In and It’s FREE!!!   You asked for more impromptu events and here’s one that is awesome.

Come on!  Admit it.  This is going to be a lot more fun than watching the Presidential Debate.  Heck, set the DVR and then you can watch it later when you’re in a good mood.

This is going to be a bit different because of the hours of the event and the fact that we are piggy-backing onto another function.   For this Impromptu affair, we will meet at the Cruise-In.  The hours are basically 5pm-8pm.   Now here’s the kool thing.   You don’t have to be there at 5pm!  And, if you don’t want to or cannot stay until 8pm, you don have to!    How sweet is that!!!

I’ll be showing up, 1122 Draper Pkwy (approx 12300 South in Draper) around 5pm, but since Jill doesn’t get off work until 6pm, she’ll stop by on her way home.  We’ll probably get a snack or dinner and then head home closer to 8pm, so you could do something similar.

This is a Cruise-In and that’s what we’ll do.  Get there when you can.  Look around for the other Britmobiles and park with us.   Since this is right at the Garage Grill, you can duck inside for an appetizer, 1/2 lb burger, pizza or whatever you want.  I ate there this week and the food is pretty good and the car theme inside is cool, too.

Take advantage of the good weather, other custom cars, great location (its at a car themed restaurant), rock & roll music and a bunch of car people.  The only thing missing will be you if you don’t stop by this BMCU impromptu event.
