August 20th. - Garage Tour & BBQ with Corvette Club
 

Club member John Rak invited LGMAC members to join the B.C. Corvette club for a garage tour and BBQ at his home in Abbotsford.
This was a great opportunity to meet and mix with another local car club.

10 Model A's plus about 30 Corvettes attended the meet with lots of parking on the vast lawn



Our Model A's were given a prominent spot close to the center of activity.
That's Stan and Donna Rothstein's immaculate 2003 50th anniversary Covette in the foreground

Our host John Rak welcomed and introduced our two groups, then started the day off with a tour of his garage and car collection which included some rare high performance cars and of course a Model A. Photos of his garage were not permitted due to security concerns.


John and his family served up a big spread of BBQ burgers, hot dogs and refreshments which we enjoyed under some shade while socializing


A decorated hat contest featured some very imaginative hats - not quite our usual 1930 era fashions.

Our steel bodied cars were a big hit with the other club, as were their cars with our group.

Thanks to John and his family for hosting this event. We hope to return to his property again in the future.

August 13th. - Tour to Bow Washington
 
It was a very good run today to Bow Edison, Washington.
We had 7 Model A vehicles and 3 modern cars on the run. Gerry led for the first leg from Ben’s place (leaving precisely at 10:45 am under the watchful direction of Tour Leader, Al Glen) through the backroads of Blaine to miss most of the traffic.
We stopped for a quick stretch and bio-break at the park just before the Chuckanut entrance. Al took over the lead and brought us safely through the Chuckanut and we paraded through the tiny town of Edison and on to Don and Debbie Allen’s place.





The weather was perfect for the drive and the picnic out the back of their 115 year-old house. Dee and Monte Robinson, Debbie and Don Allen were our hosts.
They put on a fabulous spread of pulled pork, salads, and Dee’s famous bean stew.




Our Hosts Don, Debbie, Dee, Monte

 

 

 

 

Happy door prize winners

Monte had some door prizes for us – the grand prize of a 1930 Canadian radiator shell was won by our newest members, Joanne and Pat Curley.
Other door prizes were three restored starter switches and a set of windshield swing arms.
It was Pat and Joanne’s first long trip in their Model A and they were thrilled with the run.
Interested guests Mike and Barb Cozad joined us on the run in their Model A



Another memorable “Run to Monte’s and Dee’s” for the Lions Gate Model A Club.

July 12th - Ben and Gerry's Apple Pie and Ice Cream Run
 
Cross-border travel issues limited the attendance of this year's event, but it was good to be able to finally greet our friends again in person.
A brief stop at the Birch Bay beach under brilliant sunshine
   
Delicious apple pie and ice cream was served by our delightful hostesses Alana and Camille, Marge and Gerry's grandaughters.
Monte, Dee and her sister joined us for a perfect afternoon.

April 23rd. - Tour to Langley and Abbotsford
 

Our day got off to a good start at the Colossus theater in Langley
 

While stopping for lunch at Fort Langley a troupe of furry characters paid us a visit.
 

After a pleasant drive along the Fraser river we ended up at Dave and Margie Graham's home and shop in Abbotsford. They recently rejoined the club so it was great to see them again.

Dave has an impressive welding and fabrication shop and showed the guys how he made special tools to make a patch panel for his panel truck project.....
 

....while the ladies enjoyed the rare April sunshine.

 

 

Dave's 1930 Panel Delivery Truck formed a nice backdrop for some group photos.
Thanks to Al Glen for leading the tour and Dave and Margie for hosting us.

April 9th. Spring Tune-up
 
Our first club event for 2022 was held at Scot and Cheryl McGillivray's shop in south Langley.

We had a good turnout with 20 members and about 10 Model A's.
Tune-ups, lube jobs, carb flow testing, pizza and generally just socializing were the order of the day.
After a brief morning snow shower, the sun came out and it was a wonderful way to get back together.
