T.o.B. 2008 Enjoys Good Weather

by Andy Schneggenburger

The “A Taste of Britain” show this year returned to its normal size. Two consecutive years of poor weather were replaced with a cool morning and clear skies. The combination brought out 270+ cars to the show field. This number included a large contingent of Sunbeams from the Tigers East and Alpines East clubs. Some of their member cars were featured in our yearly polo photo during halftime.

It has been a while since I have run statistics on the show so I took a little time and figured out whom our guests were. As in the past few years, we enjoyed a good turnout of new and old Minis. Both the PhillyMini and Carlisle clubs had good attendance this year. MG’s led the attendees with ninety-eight followed by Mini’s (45), Triumphs (33), and Austin Healeys (21). For list by Marque Click here. As usual, the majority of attendees were from Pennsylvania followed by Maryland (Thanks MG’s of Baltimore) and Delaware. For attendees by State Click here. As with past shows, approximately one-third were first time participants and a half dozen club members who have made all our shows.

As in past years, Lanco’s legion of volunteers helped to make the show enjoyable. Andy Myers and the field crew reorganized the spectator parking to overcome lost parking due to field renovations. We have added some new faces to the gang and I have some new volunteers for next year already lined up. Thanks to everyone for donating your time to make the show a success. Next year is our twentieth show so the club is planning to do something special for the occasion. Plan ahead, mark your calendar and I’ll see you there.
