The attendance roster was passed, and there were about 36 members in attendance. David Sobol of Gaffney, owner of a ’73-’76 TR6, visited. Jerry Azzara gave the Treasurer’s report. He reported the financial details from the Great Scot Car Show in May. Sheila Dusky had car show t-shirts or purchase and organic vegetables to share.
Karen Thomas gave her First British Car story. It began with her parents purchasing a’83 Jaguar, a very sentimental car to her that is known as her wedding car”. Everyone enjoyed her story. Bill Humphrey shared the story of his second British Car, a TR6. His humorous tale brought laughs. When asked, “Why brown?” he answered that he thought that it made him look distinguished.
Great Scot was a success and made a nice profit. There is still no word on the tree issue at Furman.
The July Noggin & Natter, breakfast at Select restaurant in Spartanburg, was a success. About 16 members attended and reported that they had good food and service.
Sam Maw shared his father-daughter road trip to Texas Tech where she is attending grad school.
