From the President

 | Published on 12/1/2019

Hello all you Healeyphiles! Plans are coming together nicely for Rendevous 2020 at the MontBleu Resort in South Lake Tahoe. While the Golden Gate Club is doing all the heavy lifting, our Club will be hosting Rocker Cover Racing and perhaps providing logistical support wherever needed. The affair will feature all the usual events, including drives, a car show, Funkhana, tech sessions, receptions, dinners and plenty of time for socializing.

 

In addition, it’s the 50th Anniversary of the Austin Healey Club USA and I hear that a special car badge is being produced that will commemorate both occasions. You’ll want to add that one to your collection! Registration fees are reasonable, and the hotel rates are an absolute steal ($59 king / $79 double  queen). Better jump on this now before the hotel allocation is sold out. You must register before receiving the code which unlocks the great hotel rates. More info further on in this edition, or at www.goldengatehealeys.com/ rendezvous-2020/.

 

As you might expect, many Club Members have already signed up. I plan to head up a caravan that will probably break up the trip with an overnight stop both outbound and inbound.

 

More info on that later.

 

Please note that in order to support Rendevous, there will be no California Healey Week in 2020, so you won’t want to miss this event.

 

On a positive note, I am happy to report that Phil Caliva is recovering nicely from his accident following Conclave in September. I understand he is home, mobile, and receiving a great deal of physical therapy, but is expected to mend nicely. Phil, you are a tough old goat and we wish you a speedy recovery!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and see you next weekend at the Holiday Party in Long Beach. If you missed the sign up cut off, give me a call, I might have a couple of tickets tucked away.
