Life in the Motor Cities Gruppe

2017 Gruppe Picnic Canceled, Festivities move to Waterford Hills

July 26, 2017

Hello friends, 
.
As of today I only had 4 people signed up for the picnic scheduled to be here on August 13.  After talking to Dave Burton this morning, we have decided to CANCEL the picnic here on August 13, and invite all of you out to Waterford Hills on Saturday August 5th to see Vic race and attend the Saturday evening dinner at a small fee.
.
We have reserved a 20 x 20 tent with tables and chairs at Waterford, end of the straight, same location we had the 1998 Holiday tent.   Bring your cooler and beverages and snacks, food is available to purchase at the race track.  This change in venue will save the club about $2,000, plus the wear and tear on us. 
.
Please try to make it out to the race track and cheer Vic on.

If you want to stay for dinner, I need your confirmation asap HERE

You can just pay at the event. Let’s turn this into a big celebration for Vic and the Motor Cities Gruppe. See the blog post below for more info or Click Here.

Waterford Hills July Aug 2017
.

Please drive out to Waterford Hills the first weekend of August, especially Saturday August 5, 2017. That night there is a dinner banquet where Vic will be honored. There is a small cost for the banquet, but well worth it to honor our dear friend.

.

From the Waterford Hills Website:

.

“As per what WE think of as tradition, we honor every other year or so, a Prodigal Son Of Waterford Hills. This year, it’s Vic Skirmants’ time in the spotlight. Rest assured, long tales and true stories are sure to be shared. Mark your calendars and spread the gossip. It’s Weekend @ VIC’S (think Weekend at Bernie’s, we can be a silly lot you know)”

.

We look forward to seeing the Gruppe well represented in the spectator area!

 

Thanks

 

Barbara

New Venue for and Old and Well Loved Event

.

Mary Liz Curtin Stephen Scannel have always been gracious hosts for our Winter Pot Luck Dinner. Over the years it has been held in their wonderful shop Leon and Lulu but this year we moved next door to their newest venture, the Clawson Theater and what a great venue to hold not just our event, but any kind of indoor event, really. Be sure to stop in when in the area.

.

.

We had about 50 people this year, a good sign that we are ready for spring and the advent of the driving season. Be sure to look for an announcement soon about the 2017 Spring Tour, entering its 25th year!
