From The President's Desk
OT! It's summer and it's hot. But we are not slowing down. I have many exciting things to report.
The Southwest Regional Event was held from June 2nd to June 4th in Orange County, CA. In attendance were MBCA's national
president Terry Kiwala, our Southwest regional director Bud Cloninger and other section presidents and board members. It was a very good
event allowing me to get to know other chapter board members and share ideas with them. A few of us also got a chance to talk to Terry
Kiwala at length about MBCA National and the things they are doing to further better our club. As a businessman myself, I appreciate all
that Terry has done during his tenure as president to improve MBCA on many levels and to ensure it will remain a strong and viable car club
for many years to come.
Clock and Engine Museum and Capistrano Mission -
We had a wonderful time at the Clock and Engine museum where we learned about old farming equipment, visited a working blacksmith workshop,
a working hand weaving workshop, a miniature train museum and other cool stuff! After a great lunch we had a private tour of the mission at
San Juan Capistrano by a retired history professor. She and the mission were amazing.
Upcoming events -
there are several upcoming events, so wash your cars, fill up the tanks and join us.
Frasier Mountain Drive - Winery Tour & Tasting -

wine tasting. Can't attend both days? Then join on either Saturday or Sunday. See more info in this newsletter.
Holiday Party -
Saturday December 2nd: Save the date! Mindy Rudyan, our event planner (and my lovely wife ??) has been working diligently to plan this
year's Holiday Party. After reviewing numerous proposals, Mindy decided to hold our Holiday Party at the Automobile Driving Museum at 610
Lairport Street, in EL Segundo CA. While Mindy is still working out the final details, we will get to experience the museum, ride in old
cars and enjoy a gourmet lunch and of course, enjoy each other's company in a private setting. Further details will be sent out later this
year via a news blast. Stay tuned…

Other non-voted board member positions are available as well. I encourage all of you to join our board and help us make our club even
better. If you would like to join the board for a non-elected position, please contact me or any other board member for details.
At times, I like to share with our members other car related items that I feel might be valuable. One such item is "the car
comparison tool" published by Car and Driver. Please keep in mind that the club is simply passing this information to you. The club makes no
guaranties as to the tool's effectiveness or accuracy nor does this club endorse any car magazine. Proceed using this tool at your own risk.
To access this tool you can go to www.caranddriver.com/car-comparison-tool
It's been a pleasure serving you this past year. I am looking forward to seeing all of you at our upcoming events.
