As they say, time flies when you're having fun and here we are half way through the summer already. But, that means that we still have half of the summer left to have fun with our friends and our cars.
We are just a few days away from the annual Hot August Nights Festival in Reno and its only 40 or so days until the 12th Annual Cruisin' the Pines Car Show. The Tag Along Group has safely returned from their cruise up the Oregon coast and the Good Guys Car Show in Puyallup. The Alaska Cruise Group will be getting together at the Garber's for a Bon Voyage Party on the 20th and the Mystery Tour Committee is working on that annual pilgrimage in October. And, the last weekend of July will include the California Auto Museum Cruise and the infamous Midnight Mass.
From a Beach Boys Concert to a long cruise to Washington; from hamburgers and shakes in Auburn to the same in Grass Valley; from touring garages to finding clues along the way on a mystery tour; from 4th of July parades to a high school spaghetti feed; from San Diego to British Columbia and from the Pacific to the Rocky Mountains; from the warmth and charm of Old Mexico and soon the majestic beauty of Alaska; the Roamin Angels live up to our name – WE'RE THE ANGELS, THE ROAMIN ANGELS, AND WE LOVE TO ROAM AROUND, AND AROUND AND AROUND.
Events are an important piece of what makes the Roamin Angels the special Club that we are. However, it's only one piece of this very complex puzzle. Friendships, some old and some new; a love of an important part of American 20th century history, the automobile; the quest to rebuild, restore, modify, more power, more speed, more shine; to work together on putting on the best car show in Northern California; to help kids get an education; to promote and protect our hobby; and to assist those that help the needy in our community - these are some of the pieces that make up the Roamin Angels. But the glue that holds these pieces together is the simple fact that the Roamin Angels love to do things together and be together no matter whatever the purpose or destination may be.
As we cruise our way through August please keep our upcoming Car Show in mind. If you haven't signed up to help, please get in contact with Thane or Duke who can direct you to one of their sub-committee chairperson's. Car Show posters have been printed and help will be needed to distribute them all over Nevada County and beyond. There is much to do and a short time left to get everything ready, so please help out whenever and however you can.
The Board is still looking for a replacement for Lynne Fenchel's position. Please call either myself or Ron Cherry if you're interested. Enough Said - Cruise Safe - Have a Great August.
