Meanwhile in Baton Rouge:

On Saturday Sept. 9th THE social event of the season happened at Danny and Dana Varnado’s in Watson, La. About 30 BMCNO members with 12 LBC attended an Ice Cream Social tech session to get our cars ready for the upcoming fall British car shows at Natchez (9-16-23 and Fairhope 10-21-23).

We worked on cars, swam in the pool and tried out our new Valve Cover Raceway! Then Dana brought out some of her famous homemade ice cream in chocolate, vanilla and creme soda!

What a day! Thanks to the Varnado’s for hosting.

The Renegade  Breakfast Group of Baton Rouge had a small group of 4 at the Dec 12 limited breakfast meeting, which was an equal split between LBC’s and two GCC vehicles.

Good food, fast service, a low ambient background noise and interesting back-story tales made for an enjoyable event.

There was Impromptu Tech Session immediately after with a windshield valet demonstration necessitated by a major condensation issue on both sides of the glass due to the inclement weather conditions, which then led to an extended discussions on MGB wipers i.e. “are all three identical or should the RH one be different?”  (Meanwhile, Randy pointed out that the German engineers had solved this issue on his vehicle by using just a single wiper arm and blade)

Meanwhile, the TR was undergoing carburetion adjustments so it could safely leave the parking lot.  “How to use the TR hand-crank mechanism with a minimum loss of coolant” was postponed due to the late hour.

Please remember that the last 2020 BR Group meeting is this Wednesday (Dec 9, 2020) – if you haven’t done so yet, please let myself or Bobby know if you plan to attend or not.  As it stands right now, it is forecast to be a cool but rainless evening and so absolutely perfect for us all to enjoy the dark and put our Lucas electrical systems to the test, plus a great opportunity to be an entrant to be the final “Loo Seat” winner of 2020.

BR Breakfast Dec 12, 2020 mini tech session

Saturday Oct 3rd at Cars & Coffee we picked up a new member Kathleen Young and Arthur Swanson who drive a white 2004 Jaguar XK8.

Other attendees were: Hugh Coleman, Dean Duplantier, Wally Gettys, Hans Hassinger with a guest, Bob Hurst, BIll Jackson, Allan Maxwell, Colin McCormick, Robert Rougelot, Benny Stiegler, and Debbie and Jimmie Watts. 

Brian, the manager at Daisy Dukes, invited us to participate in Trick or Trunk in the parking lot on Friday October 30th. He will be showing “The Munsters” movie outside as a drive in movie. 

After breakfast seven of us drove to Debbie & Jimmie’s who graciously offered the use of their lift for our tech session. Colin, Benny, Hugh and Robert put their cars on the lift for small adjustments and corrections. 

A splendid time was had by all!
