Gilmore Exhibition – The Golden Age of Sports Cars

This wonderful exhibition is quickly beginning to wind down. The display runs from now through the end of April, 2017. If you haven’t made plans yet to see this exhibition at the Gilmore Car Museum, you should! It is well worth your time. There is even a public Facebook group celebrating this wonderful display. On April 30, there will be a farewell where the cars are driven out of the museum by their owners. The event begins at 12:00. You can find more details at this link: http://www.gilmorecarmuseum.org/event/farewell-sports-cars/?instance_id=326.

Sporting Clays

Our Spring excursion to the Blendon Pines Gun Club will be on Saturday, May 20. For those of you who haven’t tried it, this has been called “golf with a gun.” You shoot at clay pigeons along a course laid out through a variety of terrain. No experience is required, although you must have eye and ear protection. Guns, ammunition, and other equipment is available for rent. Afterwards we will gather for a lunch to top off the day. The fun begins at 10:30. Please let us know you’re coming – email to either jdarens62@aol.com or amdoor242@aol.com by Tuesday, May 16.
