Our 2022 season started out strong, with over twenty of our members in attendance for the first two events of the year.
On Saturday February 26 the club met at Owls Head Transportation Museum for a showing of the movie ‘Ford v Ferrari’ followed by our Annual Meeting, which had been postponed due to cancellation of the Holiday Party in January. As an added bonus, museum Auto Conservator Warren Kincaid offered a tour of the auto shop featuring ongoing work on two Austin Healey 100s that had been donated to the museum.
On Saturday March 12 over 25 of our members showed up for our winter luncheon which was preceded by a very interesting tour of Squire Motors in Camden. Shop owner Tax Squire and his staff had graciously offered to open his shop to the club, and even provided coffee and doughnuts. The shop does high end restorations of sports cars (several were there in work) and also preps cars for SCCA racing.
After the tour the group decamped to the Sea Dog pub, where they had their upstairs room with views of Camden Harbor all set up for us. All enjoyed a hearty lunch with lively conversation and talk of the driving season soon to come. Even our NEWEST member was there, who had signed up for the club only 3 days prior. That’s enthusiasm!
As one member noted:
“A good turnout, very gracious hosts and cool cars and machinery. Most importantly, a nice feeling of camaraderie. Also a number of women and our youngest member, seven year old Amelia attending. The diversity adding a special dimension to MMSCC.”
