PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE FOR APRIL 2021

The Ides of March, St Patrick’s Day, and March Madness are all behind us and the road ahead is starting to look a little smoother as we speed past April Fool’s Day. I hope cases and COVID impact continues in a downward trajectory and look forward to upcoming opportunities to get out and enjoy the summer in a more normal manner. Clearly we’re not out of the woods yet but things are starting to look better. Stay vigilant.
 The VCTC does not have any planned events for April which is certainly unfortunate since this April marks the 50th Anniversary of the club. Club officers are exploring options to mark and celebrate the occasion later this year during a club event. We will be sure to get the word out when plans come together and expect a huge turnout. Though there are no club-sponsored activities, many weekend options for car shows or “Cars and coffee” gatherings are starting up. They implement COVID protocols and are a great option to get the classics out for a drive and see other cars of all types. May is shaping up to be a busy month for VCTC events. Bill and Linda are playing host for a gathering on May 15 at the Pamplin Breakthrough Car Show and in conjunction with Thunderbird Appreciation Day. Information is available on the club website and includes instructions for pre-registration if you are planning to participate as a show vehicle. We will have a group parking area for those attending and details will be provided closer to the event.
In addition, the annual Fredericksburg Region AACA Car Show has shifted to May 29 this year and has a new venue. Jay Brown is the host as usual. Those details are also on the VCTC website events page. We hope for a strong club turnout to show the club flag and let people see one of the most recognized and popular classic cars in the world. In addition to these club events, I recently noticed the announcement for the 2021 AACA  Annual Convention to be held in Williamsburg from June 3-5 (for those who may also be AACA members). The summer is shaping up to be a busy time. To everyone, best wishes and stay safe. I look forward to getting out and getting together. Watch for additional information via email or check out the club website for information about the upcoming events. I hope to see you soon.
All the best!
Eric
VCTC President
