Hello Antique Car Club Members,
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone. This has been the most strenuous Novembers of my life and I appreciate the support of the club. I hope to see so many of you at the Christmas party. There is not much business to take care of ‘til spring, so we will not have a general meeting until the second Monday of April ( the 8th ), 2019. There will be no board meeting in December, next one will be January 7th. Keep the shiny side up and battery tenders on!


FROM THE WAGON MASTERS -- Mike Biggy and Bill Downs

This column reminds club members of upcoming car shows that we can all attend (with or without our classic cars) as a car club. This month I'd like you to consider the 7th Annual Big Barn Car Show on April 27, 2019. Why am I telling you this now? Because this car show will be a TOTAL sellout. It's held in the parking lot of the Motte Auto Museum in Menifee. This car show has designated parking, where you park your car with others in your class. You also judge your own class only, and you can vote for your own car, which is a bit different from other car shows. It's a fun event, and we wagon masters will be attending. Since it will sell out, you may want to make plans now. Visit for entry forms.

The Phantom of the Lake

All of our club members, as well as our guests, had to be totally impressed with the Big Bear Lake Antique Car Club annual giveaway last month! It was amazing to note the diversity of charities that were the recipients of BBLACC's financial awards. Our club's reputation in the Valley has always been strong -- not just because we're a fun group, but because all of the fundraising we do all year long helps only LOCAL charities! Meanwhile, the Phantom welcomes new BBLACC club member Jean Evans. She is a retired teacher and owns a second home here in Big Bear. While she doesn't own a classic car, she is interested in making new friends AND has volunteered to help with Pinewood Derby in April and May. When you see Jean, please say "Hi" and welcome her to our club!

Hi everyone, see you at our Christmas Party Saturday December 8th, upstairs at Nottingham's. Appetizers will be served at 6:00 and dinner will be at 7:00. Remember to bring your gift exchange if you are participating. It's always a lot of fun. Please bring a Christmas toy ( kids up to 12 ) for our Kiwanis Gifts for Kids Program. Some of our local children really need this program. Thanks so much and see you all there!!
