For a social club, it has been especially difficult, with social contact
being on the verge of criminal activity.
The Good News is that the prevailing conditions have caused greater self reliance. In the absence of Car Shows to attend, and Car Shows to Volunteer with, we came up with less complicated, maybe less legal ways to have fun. Instant Cruises popped up, along with a dramatic increase in the number of “Bay Street Roll” incidents. Let’s go to Yahats, and Mapleton, and Newport, and Toledo, and Bandon, and Coquille, and Winchester Bay, and North Bend and Lakeside. Let’s just drive and find someplace to take pictures. Let’s meet up with the US 101 Club, and Bay City Cruisers. Let’s hang out with the South Coast Cruisers, Mid-Valley Mustang & Ford Club, Over the Hill Gang, Stray Angels, and all their Friends. Lets BBQ and Picnic, and drive.
Our monthly Meetings have been outdoors, in the weeds at the ‘ol Lotus, and in the wind and cold at Miller Park. Still we munched A&W Burgers, while making plans for the next cruise, and settling club business.
Considering the limitations… I had a heck of a good time.
Still, I hope each one of you can fabricate a Merry Christmas, and share your love with those close to you. A Happy New Year it will be …when when we can raise our hand and volunteer to help put on a Car Show. A Happy New Year …when we can meet early and Cruise the Coast… just to hang with friends and Strut our Stuff.
