All British Poker

Cragg Eubanks and Stephanie Norris coordinated a great  driving event that brought together many British Car enthusiasts.  They drove their Triumph, Austin Healey, and M.G. treasure.  (and Fiat!)  It was hot; there were lots of miles, and we stopped at 3 unique places of serious interest to car nuts.  Back at where it all began, we shared  a super meal.  Oh, and we played poker…read about it in the next Roars.

Have you ever wondered where that beautiful Club badge came from?  The earliest versions probably go back to the formation of the Club in 1971.  The current badge was the product of several current members.  A few are pictured here.  Greg Ulrich, on right, was a driving force in obtaining this most recent upgrade.
