1-3 Nov Deals Gap trip Brian & Donna Bogardus

Breakfast at Auten’s

Members Attending: Rolf & Annie Wilms, Tom Varallo, Kurt Breitinger and Donna & Brian Bogardus

When the Bogarduses led a group to Deals Gap last fall the trip up was foggy, rainy and misty, when they led a group to Greenwood to see a car collection it was foggy and misty, so why would the weather for this morning’s breakfast drive be anything but cloudy and misty. At least it was not foggy nor rainy and it was warm enough for 2 of the 3 cars who took the round about way to Auten’s, to do it with the top down. The Wilms and Mr. Varallo, who live in the Aiken area, took the easy way out and instead of driving to North Augusta just to turn around and drive back, met the other 5 at the restaurant. The food was good and plentiful, the coffee was tasty and promptly refilled and the conversation varied and spirited.

11 May Road Rally – but we MUST have at least 5 cars, otherwise it’s just too much to plan out Dave & Ellie Brock

Road Rally Anyone?

David & Ellie Brock want to put on another of their fabulous Road Rallies, but would like to get at least 5 cars (and hopefully a lot more) to do the event.

These are fun rallies, just follow the somewhat cryptic instructions that lead you around local streets where you have to take several required pictures. The winner is the one who finishes closest to the mileage that the Brocks took to travel the route. We have 3 proposed dates, April 20, September 21 and October 19.

If you are interested doing a rally, please comment below with which date, or dates, you can do it on.

They need at least a couple months to something like this up, so we will need an answer on the April 20th date in the next couple of weeks.
