November 18, 2012 - Crown Winery, Humboldt TN
What a great late season event! It turned out to be a beautiful, warm, sunny day - and almost 20 cars (almost all of them British) caravanned from Lakeland to Humboldt with a stop at the Brownsville town square. At the winery we met up with several British car owners from the Jackson area, and we were all treated to a wonderful wine tasting and lunch by the terrific people from the Crown Winery - followed by a tour of the winery, and a shopping spree for wine and gifts to bring back home. Hopefully, this will become a regularly scheduled event for the coming years!

July 21, 2012 - Ghost River Brewery & Green Beetle
Twenty four members met at the brewery on South Main at 3 PM and were given a first class tour and discussion of brewing. Our tour guide and brewer, Tyler, is shown in photo #3. Jerry Billmeier, who organized this event, is photo #2 sampling a Golden Ale. Following the tour, the group drove up Main to the Green Beetle Tavern for food and libations. All in all, a great afternoon.

April  22, 2012 - Jaguar Marque Progressive Dinner Cruise
Taking advantage of the great weather (despite a few sprinkles of rain), club members were treated to a progressive dinner organized by the Jaguar Marque Leaders. First stop, after a cruise of the back roads of Shelby County, was the home of Charles and Mary Anne Coleman for snacks. Then, after another shourt, scenic cruise, we visited the home of Steve and Elizabeth Wayne for a great BBQ dinner. The last stop was the home of Bob and Patti Possel where the group was treated to dessert.

February 19, 2012 - Brussel's Bonzai
We had quite a nice turnout for our trip down to Brussel's Bonzai in Olive Branch, and then on to the Mellow Mushroom in Germantown - probably due in large part for weather that was outstanding for a February event!
