August 12th. Tour to Monte's Farm in Bow WA.

We had perfect weather for our annual tour to Monte Robinson's farm in Bow Washington, one day before an August heat wave.



The group gathered at Ben and Lilly's for light refreshments before heading out, following tour leader Gerry through quiet backroads to Bellingham and Chuckanut Drive


Pat brought up the rear with his custom Ford pickup.
Fortunately he wasn't called upon to push anybody.
 


We had 9 Model A's on the run, about 100 miles round trip.




Monte, Dee plus their family and friends prepared a wonderful lunch for our group, which we enjoyed under the shade of a giant apple tree.
 


A couple of minor mechanical issues on the way home but another successful tour.


Monte was happy to see us again.
Thanks for welcoming us to your home and for your hospitality.

July 15th. BBQ with the BC Corvette Club

LGMAC member John Rak invited us to join the BC Corvette Club, which he is also a member of, for a second barbeque at his property in Abbotsford. We had a great lunch as John supplied the burgers while the two clubs supplied the salads and desserts. While it would seem to be an odd combination, we all have a passion for our cars in common and everybody had a great afternoon.



We met at the Colossus theater in Langley, where tour leader Gary got us underway for a drive through Fort Langley to our destination.


It was a hot afternoon but there was lots of shade to enjoy our lunch and meet with the other club members



12 Model A's and a few modern cars from our club attended


Quite a contrast between 1930's and 2023 vehicles


Stan educated the Corvette group on the history and simplicity of Model A's, while we were educated on the amazing features of a C8 Corvette.

Thanks to John Rak and all the people who helped to organize this event.

June 10th. Blenheim Lodge Visit and tour
 

After days of brilliant sunshine, as luck would have it the day started out with light rain so limited the attendance for our tour. However, by noon the rain subsided and we were able to enjoy lunch at Maple Grove park.

After a drive around UBC we parked at Blenheim Lodge where many of the residents came out to view our cars and reminisce about their younger days

April 22nd. Spring Tech Workshop & Winerie Tour
 
Our first club event for 2023 was held at Scot and Cheryl McGillivray's shop in South Langley.

We had a good turnout with 8 Model A's and about 20 men and 9 ladies.
While the men did some tune-ups, socializing and a little mechanical work, the ladies enjoyed a tour to some local wineries.
The weather cooperated for most of the day so it made for an enjoyable first event for the year.

You can never have too many mechanics when it comes to tune-ups

 

Terry's roadster pickup had some loose wheels

Ben's Phaeton getting checked out

 

 

Why does it have 4 extra cylinders?

The men enjoyed a pizza lunch....

 

....while the ladies enjoyed charcuterie and wine

 

 
We had 9 ladies and Cheryl's daughter chauffeuring us. We started at the house tasting wines from Domaine Chaberton. We shared cheese, crackers, and charcuterie bowl. Then we moved on to Township 7 and then over to Backyard winery. The men were waiting patiently for us to get back!
Fun was had by all.
