Glendale Gathering

It looks like we've got a tentative time and place for the next club meeting!

It will be held in Glendale, CA on Saturday, November 13th. Huge thanks to Mark Enright (and family) for hosting. The get-together will likely begin in the early afternoon and stretch until sometime in the evening.

For those Californians interested in joining the mailing list and or attending, please send an email to with your full name and location (and Rebelscum screen name if you have one) and you'll be in the loop for details about the event as the date draws closer.

Looking forward to talking shop with the mastermind of Mortar Heads and enjoying good beer, good food, and great company.

Fall / Winter 2010 Meeting

As life’s chaos continues (back to work, starting a graduate program and potentially moving), I’m reaching out to my fellow California Vintage brethren to reassure (or reassess?) that the CAVSWCC is still alive and well. Celebration V was an absolute blast. It was great being able to see some of you again, as well as meeting several for the first time. The club’s official t-shirts were an absolute hit (be proud, Barth!). Rest assured, those who requested a shirt beforehand have one set safely aside…

Which brings me to my next point. It’s about time that we had another meeting. I’ve been compiling an official mailing list, but there are still some of you that I do not have an e-mail address for. So, if you’d like to join, please send an e-mail to and I’ll be sure to get you on there.

With the last meeting taking place up north, the club’s past trend would lead towards a Southern CA meeting next. An idea that Barth and I discussed was trying to plan at least one meeting in each region per year, set well in advance so that as many members as possible could attend. When thinking about it, that’s about how many we had before. Of course, the more the better (several informal get-togethers would be great as well).

As far as the date, I was thinking that one of the following Saturdays may work, depending on everyone’s schedules:

November 6th, 13th, 20th

December 11th, 18th

For me personally (and anyone else that may be involved with school), the December dates would be ideal in terms of having a break. But, I want to hear everyone’s input and whichever date seems best is the one we’ll go with. Also, if there's anyone that would be willing to host, please let me know.

Regarding the shirts, I’m happy to mail them out to whomever would like theirs before the meeting or for those who won’t be able to make it. Otherwise, I’ll plan on bringing them to the meeting and handing them out there. So, just let me know what you all think and we’ll go from there!
