October was a blur of events with our Hunt Country Classic, the Rockville Car Show and our Drive-to-lunch on successive weekends! Our annual Drive-to-lunch was a success with a great run through Montgomery Co. John Huber led eight MGs and a Jag on a great drive over some very lovely roads. By special arrangement we visited Damascus Motors, filming site of the Velocity Channel’s “Junkyard Empire.” Lunch at the Olney Ale House was also a treat with more than 16 members attending lunch and the membership meeting. Thanks John for a great drive!!
November is a little more laid back, with a couple of must do events bracketing Thanksgiving weekend. Steve Boyce will lead us at the Annual Turkey Rallye on Saturday 18 November. This is always a great drive over the back roads between Vienna and Great Falls. Lunch and membership meeting with election of Directors at the Old Brogue Pub in Great Falls.
