Thank you to all 14 people in attendance at the SCTPI June 12th meeting at Spiro's Cafe in Orange. We had several new faces as well as the usual group of great people who make it fun to be a thirdgen owner.
We showed the video of the cruise and drag racing from the Los Angeles Invasion event, May 29-30th. Allan was especially proud of his 12.09 ET as he reset his record for fastest n/a 350 TPI. That coveted 11 second ET is only a nice day away.
Next the topic turned to the our next event, a potluck bar-b-q and picnic at Craig Park in Brea. The entrance is near the corner of State College and Imperial Highway. This allows Kevin to opportunity to get there early and reserve a spot, as well as invite everyone to come to his place afterwards to swim in the pool and continue the day's fun. The date of this event is Saturday July 10th, from 11am to 4pm, with the event continuing at his place around the corner into the evening.
We then discussed having a cruise thru the Inland Empire in August, either starting in Idylwild and heading North to Morongo Casino, or if the weather is too hot, heading South to Penchanga Casino in Temecula. The date and details will be finalized in the coming weeks.
Our annual favorite cruise up to Don's lodge in Big Bear will be happening again in late September, with a new twist. Instead of stopping at the Alpine Slide, we will head to The Bowling Barn for a couple hours of 10-pin bowling. After that, Logonita Lodge will treat us to unlimited hamburgers and hot dogs, and the cruise down the mountain might end with a stop at A&W for a root beer float.
Our meeting concluded with a mention that our next meeting will be either August 21st or 28th, depending on when our special guest speaker can make it. The location will be determined, as we decided to meet at a different restaurant the next time.
Thank you again to Don, Allan, Russ, Andy, Jon A., Jon V., Danny, Rich, Frank, Lon, Julie, Alex, and Raul for attending, and we look forward to seeing you in the future at our next SCTPI event!
