THE PALO ALTO BRITISH CAR MEET
SATURDAY TOUR - SUNDAY SHOW
September 7th & 8th, 2002

LAST MINUTE UPDATE

Well folks, it's just a week away and no one has torn up the El Camino so
we're still on. The new entrance and intersections (yep, that's plural) are
in place so forget everything you know about the way it used to look. We
will be starting the tour to Cameron's Pub on the coast on Saturday in the
El Camino Park parking lot this year so PLEASE DON'T GO DOWN TO BRITISH CAR
MAGAZINE AND WONDER WHERE EVERYONE IS!

Participant Gifts at the show this year will be both a large, 11oz coffee
cup that features a Morris Royal Mail van, AND a dash plaque. Shirts will
be available from California Custom at the meet.

The American MGB Association will be joining us with their 2002 National
Convention and there will be a display of even more unusual cars from all
over the world from the Arcane Auto Society. Many of you British car
enthusiasts who have cars too few and far between to have a club should
consider joining: Contact: "Byron Brill" <jowett1@earthlink.net>,

Jazz this year will be by the Herb Gibson Quartet. These are the present
day incarnation of the old San Francisco Jazz Workshop combos that we
featured over a decade ago. Moss Motors, The Ministry of Food and designer
coffees from Cafe Caretto will be there to serve you. Mike O'Conner and
O'Conner Classic MGs will be there celebrating 25 years in business.

Club displays and easy-ups are welcome. Come join the fun!

SATURDAY - September 7th

The Official British Car Meet Tour To The Sea starts at El Camino Park in
Palo Alto - The same place as the Sunday Show. This is a no cost option for
people who like to drive their cars rather than just show them. We will be
sending cars off between 9:00AM and 10:00AM. Don't be late! The event will
end at Cameron's Pub in Half Moon Bay where we will be kicking tyres and
telling tall tales in the car park into the afternoon.
