We had a great club turnout for the LA Classic Car Show at the LA Convention Center in late January. Thanks to Steve Kirby for organizing this event, it was a lot of work. Thanks also to those members who displayed their cars ... we had one of the best booths at the show. Congratulations to Bill Hoyt for his award! Planning for the Monterey International Healey Week is continuing by the Golden Gate club. Over 120 cars are now registered, including about 40 from our club. Be sure you have made your hotel reservations at the Hyatt for this event in September. We have agreed to run the Rocker Cover Racing event during Healey Week. For those members interested in building rocker racer cars, please let me know. If needed, we will schedule a Tech Session on this topic this spring.
I was recently contacted by an official of the La Jolla Concours show to be held on April 8th and 9th.
The marque this year for the British sports car class is Austin Healey 100s and 3000s. We hope to have some of our members participating and a few of us will be going to the show to support them.
The updated 2017 Spirit Award rules are included in this issue. They have been changed to encourage member participation in newsletter articles, hosting events and recruiting new club members.
