Wow! What a busy October we’ve had! I cannot remember a month with so many events! A great Hunt Country Classic with warm weather, a good Drive-to-Lunch to Upperville, VA the next weekend, the Rockville Car Show and our annual Test Drive the following weekend. Some of us have signed on to go on the Overnight to Luray, VA making 5 Club events in the month! I also heard that a couple of members also went to John Tokar’s Vintage Restorations Open House.
Well done to all the club members that organized and volunteered for our events, your help and participation made them all memorable events.
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 17 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. See article elsewhere in this Spark.
If you need a break from the turkey leftovers, slip out for some vintage car racing at the Turkey Bowl Summit Point Raceway, Summit Point WV, 23-25 November. Full details at the website below. This is a Vintage Racer Group event and will include the best of vintage racers running the classic Summit Point course.
