May 28, 2019 -  Taco Tuesday
The BSCC owes Ileana and Steve Feltman a big round of applause for even undertaking to host our monthly Taco Tuesday at their lovely home on Cotton Plant Road. All together, about 65 persons (and a yard full of British and American sports cars) gathered at the Feltman homestead on Tuesday, May 28th. Iliana and Steve organized the whole affair - a big cooler of cerveza, bowls of salsa, tasty corn chips, cheese dip, and a big container of Margarita!  Ole!! Not to mention having made all the arrangements for a taco truck to pull into their driveway right on schedule.

What could possibly throw deep shade on a perfectly coordinated event? Uh, a no show for the truck.  That's what can dump a cold bucket of ice on the fiesta.

But, Wait!!  Who is that riding to the rescue? None other than Ileana & Steve along with their friends Dottie and Jim, that's who!  They quickly put their heads together, contacted a friendly nearby Mexican restaurant, and soon delivered all the ingredients for a delightful comida campestre (picnic) buffet. It was an amazing and surefooted recovery from a near disaster. Due to their fast thinking and flexibility (and a lot of help from friends of the Feltmans), the BSCC celebrated our largest Taco Tuesday turnout in real style.  Lots of friendly faces, wonderfully tasty food, and plenty of beverages to slake thirst or toast our hosts.  Our emergency rescue squad turned a sure failure into a rousing success.

Brilliant!  And all we can say is Muchas Gracias!

May 26, 2019 -  Indy 500 Fish Fty

The British Sports Car Club owes Jim Hofer a big round of applause for his sterling performance as host and chef at our annual Austin Healey sponsored Memorial Day Fish Fry. As always, Jim (with able support from Bill Schulzke) did a master chef's job providing tasty fish, crispy french frys, traditional hush puppies, and really nice onion rings.

Jim (and Bill) hardly had time to grab a glance at the thrilling Indianapolis 500 mile race that kept folks huddled in Jim's garage rapt. The place was a hubbub of conversation until the green flag dropped, then almost dead silence as the race and Jim's delicious fish grabbed everyone's attention.

Simon Pagenaud won a tightly contested Indy 500, while Jim Hofer led from the start in the Best Host and Best Fish sweepstakes!

Two great wins in one day! Woo Hoo
