September 26, 2010 - MG Marque Event: Poker Run
After one of the hottest summers on record, the first cool weekend of the fall season was a welcome relief - giving BSCC members a chance to finally enjoy an afternoon cruise in their favorite cars!

 

August 8, 2010 - Mini Marque Event: Rallye, BBQ & Garage Crawl
The Mini Marque event was one of the best attended of the year, in spite of it being one of the hottest days of the year! The Rallye, the fantastic ribs and other great food, and the tour of the Brody's spectacular garage made it well worth braving the weather.

 

July 24, 2010 - Strawberry Plains Audubon Center
Despite the hot weather, an intrepid group of BSCC members made the short trek to visit the antebellum home at the Strawberry Plains Audubon Center, followed by lunch on the square in Holly Springs, MS.

 

June 27, 2010 - Poker Run
A large contingent turned out for this year's Jaguar Marque Event - a Poker Run beginning at the Agricenter and finishing at Johnny's New York Pizza in Collierville - despite some of the hottest weather of the year!

 

May 30, 2010 - Indy 500 Fish Fry
Once again we all got to enjoy watching the 500 at the home of Buzz Merchlewitz...along with catfish, fries, onion rings and hush puppies courtesy of chef Jim Hofer. As usual, other members brought along a wide variety of tasty appetizers, side dishes and desserts.

 

April 25, 2010 - Old Millington Winery
Nice weather led to a nice turnout for this popular annual event. A melting pot of BSCC member's cars (British, Italian, Japanese, German and American) lent some variety to the event - where we were also joined by a couple of Miata club members.

 

April 17, 2010  - Kiwanis Germantown Car Show
Five BSCC members participated in the show. Charles Coleman-Jaguar, Gordon Gold- Sunbeam Tiger, Chris Wilson-Morgan, Don Eye-MGB, Jeb Blanchard-Ford Thunderbird. Weather co-operated and had a good turnout. Larry Kiehna, Tom Wilson, and Jack Reynolds came by to visit. Some hardware was taken home but the only confirmed plaques were a 1st place for Jeb Blanchard and 3rd place for Gordon Gold.

April 11, 2010  - Shiloh Trip

The weather was perfect, Seven British cars and One Cadillac made the journey Sunday. This was the first BSCC event where Sunbeams outnumbered MG's. Two Alpines and one Tiger. We had a great drive to the Shilo National Battlefield. After the event at Shilo we drove to the Catfish Hotel restaurant and had a wonderful meal. Some returned via Hwy 57 and another group Returned via Hwy 64. There were no mechanical problems and everyone had a great time. Thanks to all who participated.       Gordon Gold

March 20, 2010  - New Orleans Car Show

A contingent of 3 BSCC cars made their appearance at this show - and all three (Jim Duke, Jack Reynolds and Tim Hayes) brought home awards! Here are a few photos, courtesy of Jim Duke...

January 24, 2010  - Mid-Winter Rallye

The first event of the year was a reprise of last fall's Car Show Rallye. As luck would have it, the weather was perfect (for January)...warm and dry! As you can see from the photos, we had a very nice turnout to kick off the new year...
