PREZ MESS

SUMMER HAS ARRIVED….HOT, HOT, HOT

From 75 degrees yesterday to 95 today. Welcome to the Post-Covid, Mid-Climate-Change, Welcome-To-Summer New Normal. Even the weather is polarized, moody and indecisive.
The good news is, of course, the easing of Covid restrictions and the freedom to move around a little. And the really good news is that we have scheduled our return to the Buttercup for our regular monthly meetings beginning Saturday, July 10. This will be GREAT fun and the relaunch of the greatest club anywhere. A new semblance of order after all this time, some organizational of plans and some spirited discussion of places to go and future outings. Please join the festivities and let’s make this summer one to remember.
JULY 10TH – BUTTERCUP PANTRY – 10:00 AM FR BREAKFAST
660 YGNACIO VALLEY RD. WALNUT CREEK
In other great news. Mark your calendar for June 26 for the 63RD BATOC Anniversary celebration and picnic. We’ve pulled together a casual and fun filled picnic at Shadow Cliffs Regional Recreation Area in Pleasanton and all of it catered by Dickey’s BBQ and paid for by the club…as the Anniversary party always is. But we do need a head count right away. So please join all your long-lost friends for a day of fun and sun.
JUNE 26TH – BATOC 63RD ANNIVERSARY

We are, however, going to ask for a little logistical help from a few “locals” to assist with errands, setup, tear down and game organization to make this a truly great day. So, here’s the deal…and pay attention…LOL If you can lend your assistance on Thursday and / or Friday (6/13, 6/14) please give me a call so we can beg for your help and coordinate our schedules. Dave @ 415-269-0055.
On a “Re-cap” note…we had a very nice outing to Sacramento at the Thunderbird Extravaganza on May 15th. Thunderbirds of all vintages from all over the West Coast, including several Rare “F” Birds and “E” Birds along with a huge flock of regular birds from Baby birds all the way through Big birds and Retro birds were in attendance. There were 88 fabulous birds including 8 of our own. We had a great day touring the California Auto Museum, meeting fellow “Birders” from lots of other chapters up and down the west coast and then caravanning home through the Delta backroads on a perfect day.
On a sad note….for those of you who have been in the club for many, many years, I am sad to report the passing last week of Nel Richmond. Nel was an integral part of this club for many years in the 1970’s through the 90’s. She was the clubs “energy force” and kept us all entertained with great outings while serving as our Activities Chair. She had a beautiful Peacock Blue 1956 and an authentic 1963 Roadster. Nel will be sorely missed by this club and every other club in Northern California.
And finally, I want to take this opportunity to welcome the numerous new members who have joined our ranks doing the long, cold “Nuclear Winter” and say that we look forward to welcoming you in person at either the Anniversary picnic or our in person club meeting in July.
Dave
