Alpine Loop Drive, September 2016

September 28th, 2016 | Posted in Event Reports

The big question was this: would later but just as early be better? The later, doing the drive in September rather than August. The just as early, starting at the earlier time of day. The better, would the traffic be lighter.

The morning started cool (in the 40s in Midway, just fine in the Morris) but clear for the rendezvous at the mall. A large group of people and cars arrived attracted by the prospect of beautiful colors and tasty burgers. The weather couldn’t have been nicer, and after some chatting and instruction handout we were on our way.

Fall Color Tour, Saturday October 1

September 28th, 2016 | Posted in News

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.

Impromptu cruise in report

September 28th, 2016 | Posted in Event Reports

The British are coming!   That could have been the cry when the BMCU showed up at the Cruise In.  We started with two parking spaces in the lot, surrounded by some pretty awesome, customized Detroit iron.  Then as the evening continued, more and more Britmobiles continued to arrive and push out the confining boundaries.  We ended up with nine LBCs that stole the show.  After all, our old, unique vehicles were the “unusual” ones in this gathering of customized cars.   Robert’s red Sunbeam Alpine, parked next to a red Ferrari, attracted just as much attention.  After all, you regularly see Ferraris on the roads around town, but how often do you see a Sunbeam Alpine?

Many of us had dinner in The Garage Grill, before heading out in various directions for a great, evening drive home.

If you weren’t there last night, you should make an effort to join us for our last scheduled event this season, the Fall Color Tour.  Look for Color Tour info in another email posted before this one.
