April Tech Session

Eight BAHC members, including myself showed up for our tech session held at my work place.  Attendees included Don Hughes, Bob Jahnke, Darin & Elaine Graber, Craig Ward, Dave Maxwell, Glen Schimmelpfennig and myself.

Since we had no members needing help show up, we mainly worked on donuts and coffee. Dave and Craig did replace a flasher unit and overdrive switch on Dave’s 100-4. Darin gave out a check-list of items to service before hitting the road after a long winter.

AutoRama 2018

The BAHC had a nice showing of Healeys at this year's AutoRama. Darin Graber, Craig Ward, Bob and Fran Riemenschneider, Jim Thornton and Jon Hanson were BAHC participants in this event...who I might add won first through fifth in the "Foreign Sports" category (in that order). It is my understanding that we were the ONLY entrants in that category - a convenient situation!

The event actually started on Wednesday, March 21st when we loaded the cars into the Expo Center. The show was open to the public between 3 pm the following Friday to 6 pm on Sunday. The BAHC display was a real standout with brass stanchions, red velvet rope, British flags and a number of tastefully placed fake ficus trees (thanks to Bingham high school and the BMCU for the use of these items).

We exited the event shortly after 6 pm on Sunday into a well-timed snow storm. Had I a camera handy, I would have taken a picture of a smiling Jim Thornton driving north on State Street in the snow, no top, and wipers furiously clearing the snow off the windshield. My wipers croaked  from snow load when I turned off from State Street onto 21st South so spent twenty-six blocks with my left arm out the window clearing snow with a towel and driving semi-blind. I should add that the snow stopped one hour after my arrival at home! 

 Many thanks to Darin for organizing this BAHC display and doing the bulk of the work associated with it! This was a lot of work!

Valentine's Day
There was a great turnout for the annual Valentine's Day dinner. This year it was held at Red Butte Cafe located in Foothill Village. The staff had set up one long table that handily accomodated the nineteen participants that came. Conversation was lively but the background din was such that at times it was hard to hear the person across the table - but somehow everyone was able to communicate! The Red Butte Cafe's menu is reasonably extensive and everyone ordered directly from that menu. Sheryl Thornton brought some really quite good Valentines' cookies as a dessert for everyone - as for me, that cookie served as my "breakfast dessert" the next day (thanks, Sheryl!). A toast to our friends Ernie and Vickie Reno, who recently passed away, was made by Jim Thornton - their presence was and will be missed. All in all, everyone had a good time. Thanks to Jim Thornton for organizing this dinner.
