Our Next Event:  

May 14: Cars & Coffee!!  

Morrisville, PA  

w/ Tech Q & A by our British car expert Paul Barnes  

My apologies for the recent dearth of newsletters; the combination of my Penn  State-Abington classes and how much effort is needed to build a functioning  government in Morrisville is far more than I ever expected. But we’ve now got an  awesome program planned, great driving weather has returned, and BCBC is ready  to rock 2022! 

Welcome Aboard!! 

A hearty BCBC welcome to our newest members: 

∙ Ms Jean Aloe; Doylestown, MGB 

∙ Mike Turturro, Doylestown, MGB 

∙ Tom & Erin Maguire, Yardley, MGB  

∙ Bob & Janet Factor, Upper Black Eddy, NJ, MGB 

∙ Greg Dupay, Morrisville, TR-3  

Congratulations! 

Commander-select Todd O’Brian, US Coast Guard, who will soon be promoted to  Commander. An awesome career, and thank you for your service! 

Recent Events: 

Feb 12. Breakfast Drive to Lumberville General Store 

Our 2022 Kick-off event; great driving weather and good friends! Leaving from 

Wash Crossing Park, Mike S, Jeff C, Rich, Marc, Marty, Larry R, Larry T &  nephew Chas, Bob B, Gerard & Lori, Jeff & Mary D, and Andy L welcomed new members Jean Aloe and Tom & Erin Maguire to an awesome outdoor brunch. This  is fast becoming our go-to breakfast drive!  

April 9, Cars & Coffee, Washington Crossing Park: As the BCBC hardcore  ignored the threat of rain to enjoy Tom Maguire’s coffee, the temps suddenly  dropped, the skies darkened, and the skies opened. This enabled Jeff D, Mike S,  Larry R, Brendan, Marty, Tom, and Andy L to pretend they enjoyed standing in  the chilly, drenching rain. Especially enjoying the event was Andy L, whose  convertible top was resting safe and dry on his porch, since it was sunny when he  left for the C & C only 30 minutes earlier.  

April 23; Breakfast @ Nutts: 

Jeff & Mary D took advantage of a surprisingly nice day and semper-gumbeyed a  last-second breakfast drive to Nutts (Wash Crossing, NJ), joined by Roger  Williams and Tom & Erin Maguire. Rumor has it the talk turned to local wineries,  which promoted Jeff & Mary to trek across the New Hope-Lambertville bridge on  their way to the Bishop Estates Winery, just west of Dublin. Music – munchies wine; it sounds like a future BCBC event! 

Club Notes: 

-Our Cars & Coffee SOP: 

We’ve kept our dues the same for the past five years because of your awesome  response to our calls for volunteers and assistance. That includes our C & C’s. If 

you’ve been attending the C & C’s, but not hosting, now’s your time to step  up…except for Tom, who hosted the last one, and Brendan, who’s already  volunteered for this week’s event. As Wilfred Brimsley used to say “It’s the right  thing to do.” Contact Andy L to get on the list. 

2- BCBC Apparel:  

∙ 2 gray T’s w/logo; XL, L 

∙ 1 Blue BCBC logo’d polo shirt, L
