Our Next Event: 

Breakfast & Bridges!  

Carversville Kitchen & Covered Bridges  

April 18 @ 0900 

A 2021 Recap: 

Between the bitter weather and virus concerns, it’s been a challenging winter. Our  February C & C attracted an extremely dedicated 6, while last week’s first nice weather C & C Drive attracted a more typical 9 cars/11 attendees.  

God willing, the vaccine rollout reaches Bucks County soon, and we all get  inoculated. The signs of almost-normalcy look good; effective April 4, PA re opens bars and restaurants to indoor sales of alcohol without food purchases, along  with an increase to 50% capacity (regardless of venue size) for outdoor events.  Rebels vs Redcoats in July??? 

There will still be some shows worth attending: July 3 Rebels v Redcoats at Wash  Crossing, maybe the National MG show, Hope Lodge in Aug, the Dog Event in  Oct…we’ll continue to track and advise. 

You may be sure we’ll have a full schedule of BCBC events! Van Sant  Aerodrome, winery events, there’s a brewery in Hightstown and a NJ military  museum we’re looking into, breakfast drives…we’ll continue to have events  appropriate to the virus/vaccine situation. And alas, the weather gets a vote… 

Recent Events: 

Mar 13: Cars & Coffee & our first Drive! 9 cars (11 people), and how nice for the  group to meet Carol, Brendan’s lovely wife! Larry R, Larry T, Mike S, Rich, Marc,  Marty & Teri, Brendan & Carol, MGA Bob, and Andy L all participated, but alas, 

despite 4 roadsters and 2 Porsche cabriolets, only 1 Roadster owner took advantage  of the balmy spring weather and took the top down! 

Feb 17: A Zoom Session w/British Car Guru John Twist:  

As guests of the Central Pennsylvania MG Club, Gerard, MGA Bob, Mike R,  Brendan, Jeff C, and Andy L participated in a private Zoom Q & A with John  Twist. A combination of informative, interesting, and entertaining, and we’ll be  invited to their next one. Good to learn John will be attending the June MG show,  so any BCBC attending will have a chance to meet him in person.  

Feb 21; Cars & Coffee:  

Despite the wind, cold and prior snow, 6 of our more hard-core members gathered  in Washington Crossing Rich, Mike R, Mike S, Jeff C, Larry R, and Andy L all  lied outrageously to each other as to how it wasn’t really cold and how the other  BCBC members were missing a good time…

Our new Cars & Coffee SOP: 

Since we formed BCBC some 4+ years ago, we’ve had basically the same people  funding our C & C’s. That was fine when we had 5-6-7 people, but far less fine  now that we’ve got 15-25 regularly attending. We need your help.

In our 3 C&C’s this year, Leslie, Larry R, and Andy L were the hosts, with Brendan and Marc volunteering for the next 2. If you’ve been attending the C &  C’s, but not supporting, now’s your time! Contact Andy L and make arrangements.  Thank you!!  

Club Notes: 

1-Your 2021 dues! We have an awesome website with a ‘pay here’ button. Since  we’re all sufficiently technically competent to tweak and drive LBC’s, surely a  ‘pay here’ button should be easy! $ 25.00/annually – a bargain at twice the price! 

2- June’s MG 2021 in Atlantic City: We’ve already got interest from a few of you; most for a day trip, some for an overnight. While plenty of time, if we need to  book rooms, let’s start the discussion. Contact Andy L with your level of interest. 

3- BCBC Apparel:  

∙ 1 zip-up blue Hoodie, XL 

∙ 1 gray T, XL, with new logo! 

∙ 1 Gray T, L
