2018 Spring Steeplechase Wrap Up

Action Photography by Brian

Again Tom Varallo offered the Club the use of his rail side spot at the spring steeplechase. Brian & Donna Bogardus, Jennie & Thomas Hodges and Hal & Trudy Scott enjoyed a fabulous time at the races on our Club President. We were also joined by Tom’s “nephew” and his wife for the day and MMC member Noel Brock ducked in to say hi somewhere around the 5th race.

We had grilled chicken and hot dogs to eat along with veggies, fruit and chips to dip. There were cookies for dessert and a retirement cake to top it all off for the club’s latest non-productive member of society. You would think that with the Club logo on the sign right in front of Brian & Donna’s Miata that it would have brought a question or two about Miatas and/or the club, but you’d be wrong. The Club vehicle that attracted the most attention was Hall & Trudy’s 1987 GMC Caballero (that they’ve had since new), including at least one offer to buy it on the spot.

If you missed a chance to join in the fun this spring, don’t fret because Tom has already agreed to let us use his spot for the fall event too, so mark your calendars for Saturday, October 27, 2018.
