I count 29 clubs in Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Nevada, and California. They are now listed in the IBCC Web HERE. Let me know if I have missed any.
The next addition to the Web I would like to work on is a list of local shops and mechanics that do a great job for us in keeping our LBCs on the road. If you have any shop or mechanic you can recommend, send me an email to email@example.com.
The cities of Boise and Garden City have followed suit with Eagle and have closed portions (actually, most) of the Greenbelt due to dangerous conditions along the river. This will force us to canceled the walk for this year. But I hope you all can make it to the Ram restaurant for lunch.
Where: Ram restaurant, 709 E Park Blvd, Boise. When: 11:30 a.m.
If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bob Muenchausen, one of the founding member of the Club, recently cleaned house and donated lots of books and other items to the Club. Some of you are now lucky owners of some of these items! But in the these, that I held onto was a Spoke & Word newsletter from May 1992 (Volume 1, Number 2). Yes, the second newsletter for a new club.
Back then, it was the “Idaho MG’S” club. Sometime between then and now, the Idaho MG’S got together with the TOADS (Triumph Owners and Drivers) and formed the Idaho British Car Club. As the say, the rest is history.
You can find the newsletter here: https://www.idahobritishcars.org/newsletters/2001/5-May-2001.pdf
But wait! There is more. Also in the items was a CD with photos on it from a drive the club took up to the Brown Hole (Rex and Bev’s place) and lunch at the Triangle restaurant, Sweet, ID. You can see the photos here: https://www.idahobritishcars.org/gallery-2/#1491322736682-81babf47-02d7.
Be sure to mark your calendars for September 16 and 17, 2017 for a fun-filled weekend with other British car and motorcycle owners. Yes. Plans are coming together for the SWIABFM show. Not only will we have the show at the Village at Meridian as we did last year, we are also including a drive up to McCall Idaho for a show in downtown McCall by the lake. You can get more details on the SWIABFM website (http://www.swiabfm.org) and start planning your weekend with us.
Below are the logos for the McCall drive and the Village show. Be sure to bookmark the SWIABFM web for continuous updates. We should have hotel accommodations online soon!
This sporty car turns heads everywhere it goes. It has a GM V6 with a 5-speed manual. It scoots right on down the road on brand new tires. Someone else started this project, I got it back on the road and now it’s time for someone else to finish up.
Comments Off on IBCC 3rd Annual Walk-About – CANCELED (but lunch is still on!)
Update (4/6/2017): Bureau of Reclamation and the US Army Corps of Engineers anticipates to increase flows beginning early next week due to a large snowpack and continued above-normal precipitation in the Boise River drainage. Flows will increase to approximately to 8500 CFS. You can view the entire news release from the Bureau of Reclamation on their website. (https://adacounty.id.gov/accem/Flood-Information)
Boise Mayor David Bieter and Garden City Mayor John Evans today ordered the closure of most of the Greenbelt bike and pedestrian path due to dangerous flood conditions on the Boise River. (http://parks.cityofboise.org/parks-locations/parks/greenbelt/greenbelt-closures/)
I had been alerted by club member, Mark Greenwalt that this was coming but was hoping they would wait until after the weekend. I believe they really didn’t have a choice and public safety is a key concern. It is not good along the river and will only get worse with the increase flows.
With that, the walk portion of the Walk-About is canceled but
Black Emerald with sandstone and green interior. Nicely optioned from the factory. In very good condition overall. Interior leather was redone in 2012. Paint is original but clean enough to continue for many years.
