Response to CHW 2018 in Solvang has been tremendous. After 4 weeks of registrations being open, we have signed up 56 parties, most of them from our club...here are the early results: • AHASC - 36 • Golden Gate - 16 • San Diego - 3 • Unaffiliated - 1 With almost 7 months before the event on October 17th - 21st, we are likely to have 65-75 participants, well over our forecast. I’m proud and pleased that our club has been so responsive. We are almost sold out of rooms at the Hotel Corque and will be working to designate another hotel in the area to handle the overflow.
Moss Motors has continued to be a major sponsor of California Healey Week. They have agreed to provide both financial and personnel support for the event. We plan to organize a stopover “pit stop” at their facilities in Goleta on the way up to the Santa Ynez Valley on Wednesday, October 17th. Discounted part sales and facility tours will be conducted. They will also conduct a Tech Session in Solvang during the week and provide once-a-day spare part fulfillment (if needed) at our location.
We are coming to the end of our membership renewal period, with about 50 members still not renewed for 2018. If you are one of them, please go to the website and renew soon or you will find your membership expired.
Again, this year, I am organizing a two day “British Invasion” car show on March 10th & 11th, as a part of the Dana Point Festival of Whales. There is no fee for this event but reservations are required. We are limited to 30 cars per day for both days; you can book either day or both. So far, I have about a dozen cars reserved for each day, including Healeys, Jags, MGs, Triumphs, and a Lotus. Go to the “Events” area of the website, click on the British Invasion event and register...it is a lot of fun.
Some members are staying at the Marina Inn in the harbor on Saturday night.
