THE BRITISH CAR MEET * 2008
Sierra Point Marina * Brisbane, CA
Saturday & Sunday * September 6th & 7th

Dear NorCal British Car Enthusiast,

The Sierra Point British Car Meet in Brisbane is coming along great - This year, the food and drink will be handled by the Brisbane Lions Club, that will have their grill trailer with burgers, dogs, and (hopefully) bangers all day plus cold drinks, but get this!!! The Sierra Point Yacht Club will open their doors early on Sunday for a reasonable, sit-down, prix fix breakfast, AND, they also have a full bar that will be open all day as well ......

Herb Gibson's Jazz Orchestra will be back again, set up just outside the Yacht Club.

Due to a number of reasons, the Saturday swap meet has been canceled for this year, but it will seriously be reconsidered for next year.

Even though this event is brought to you by the same folks who coordinated the Palo Alto Meet for 30 years, this is a new location with new challenges and requirements and we are working hard to provide a similar event at a reasonable price. This year, we are going back to collectable year-specific event coffee mugs for gifts.

If you belong to a club, make sure the general membership knows about this Sierra Point meet - meet old friends in a new location - carrying on the tradition.

Cheers,

Rick Feibusch
Meet Coordinator

THE BRITISH CAR MEET * 2008
Sierra Point Marina * Brisbane, CA
Saturday & Sunday * September 6th & 7th

Join us for one of the most historic British automotive events in California at
our new dockside venue at the Sierra Point Marina. Over 400 quirky, classic, and thoroughly lovable British cars are once again expected to grace the lawn and adjacent parking area in Brisbane, California. This is essentially the old Palo Alto meet in its new location. We are also expecting another great display of automotive oddities provided by the Arcane Auto Society. Spectators attend and park for free.

SUNDAY SHOW - SEPTEMBER 7th

Join your British car friends for a smashing day at the Marina. Don't have a
show car? Don't worry! Daily drivers, vintage racers, street rods and works-in-progress are as welcome as Concours quality show cars. British food, jazz, & more fun than you'll be able to tolerate! Awards in many classes. There will be no preregistration - all entrants will receive a commemorative gift. Cars will be placed at 9:00AM and the fun goes on all day. The registration fee is still $25 per car at the gate.

SATURDAY TOUR - SEPTEMBER 6th

The British Car Meet TOUR TO THE SEA starts at the Sierra Point Marina boathouse (the same place as the Sunday Car Show) and winds through the hills to the sea. It’s no-cost option for people who like to drive their cars as well as show them. We will be sending cars off between 9:00AM and 10:30AM. A map will be provided. The tour ends at Cameron's Pub in Half Moon Bay where we will be kicking tyres and telling tall tales in the car park well into the afternoon.

DIRECTIONS:

The Brisbane Marina is lacated just east of the Bayshore Freeway (101) between San Francisco and the SF Airport/Highway 380. Just take the Sierra Point Exit and follow the signs to the Marina. Trailer parking will be available on-site.

Call for information: 310-392-6605

The "Palo Alto" British Car Meet has been a staple for the GGLC members for 30 years! It's always enjoyable, casual and interesting.

Check out the GGLC Past Events to see some of the collection of Lotus we've had in the past. GOLDEN GATE LOTUS CLUB PAST EVENTS

However, the new Sierra Point site will be "different". The old Palo Alto location had the Shopping Center across the street, so it was always easy to convince the other half to join (got expensive....) But, now it's near South SF and I'm sure I can talk my better half to join.

Hopefully the new venue will be just as entertaining!

Cheers,
Kiyoshi
