BCNH Show Of Dreams

Just thought I'd send along a little info on our British Cars of New Hampshire (BCNH) Show Of Dreams.
We have an active, thriving and even growing British car club. Some may describe it as a drinking club with a British car problem!! Just kidding but our focus is on the social side more than the technical side. We have many activities during the driving season and several members take the lead to plan interesting drives with stops at various destinations. Some of these include covered bridge rides, museum rides, foliage rides, and even a Lobstah ride. Our big event is a fund raiser in July called the Show of dreams, where we now raise money for 2 charities; High Hopes Foundation and the NH Food Bank. There were 183 British cars present divided into 26 classes from Austin Healey to TVR, British Modified, British Motorcycles, and un-restored. The largest group represented this year was TR6, but we had Sunbeams, Alvas, Morgans, Lotus, and we even got 2 Jensens to show up one very nice 74 Jensen Healey in Jaguar green with a Toyota 5 speed from Maine, also a Jensen Interceptor III. The weather was sunny and hot in the nineties and the ice cream, lemonade and lobster roll vendors did a booming business. We ended up raising about $10,000 which will be divided between the two charities mentioned above. I've attached a couple pictures.

Hey, that's me! (or at least my Healey). And that's Jeff Gagnon's comp Cobra. Love those webers. Here's his build thread: [www.clubcobra.com] It was my first Show of Dreams. It was a great show with a really nice turnout.
