WPTA at Import Carlisle
THE LAST CALL!

14-16 Aug

Well, it seems like I have been writing Import Carlisle articles since January. Can anyone say Groundhog Day? The new dates for Import Carlisle are Aug. 14TH thru Aug.16th. Here is the web link for vehicle registration:

https://www.carlisleevents.com/events/events-detail/index?id=import+and+performance+nationals&urlname=supercars-exotics-display-planned-for-2019

As you know, most of us park at the Central PA British Club tent. So please register under the Central PA British Cub so that Import Carlisle does not charge them for their tent space. Therefore, I have reserved a block of 5 rooms at:

Red Roof Inn, 1450 Harrisburg Pike, Carlisle, Pa. 17015, (717) 706-3862

All rooms are “double beds” and the room rate is $ 159 + tax. The rooms are reserved under: Western Pennsylvania Triumph Association.

Editors note: If you are going to Carlisle expect to find our 3 vendor spaces C66,C67 and C68 to be empty. We still own them and you can use them anyway you want. Each comes with a vehicle pass. I have the 3 passes. If anyone wants to set up or vend or just park your car there get one from me.

Beer and Bull

18 Aug

On each successive, third Tuesday of the Driving Season we plan to do something to work up a thirst and appetite for Beer & Bull. We’ll meet at Jay’s or Bud’s place (contact Bud for confirmation, on morning of each third Tuesday) at around 3 PM and go for a spirited drive on some of Washington County’s splendid back roads. We may even venture into neighboring Brooke County, WV, as well, but we’ll still arrive by 6 PM

This little event will be for classic Brit (and maybe German or Italian) sports cars, ONLY. No daily drivers allowed.

6 pm at The Waterfront Homestead Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery

Bud Osbourne 412-855-9969

In Search of Mothman

05 Sep

On Saturday, September 5, the WPTA and Rick Brown will host a pictorial road rally in search of the Mothman of West Virginia. Navigators will sort through photos of interesting objects found along the route, and weed out any fake pictures taken elsewhere. In addition, they will be on the lookout for the infamous Mothman – a black winged creature allegedly seen by a hundred different people in the 13 month period prior to the collapse of the 39 year old Silver Bridge. The tragedy on the Ohio River occurred at rush hour December 15, 1967, submerging 64 people in 31 vehicles. 46 of them lost their life. The Mothman was never seen again – until NOW!! My prophesy is that he will appear at some point during this run.

We begin our quest at McDonalds on Bobby Vinton Blvd. in Canonsburg. The first half of our run will uncover the illusive Mothman to those who take up the challenge. The second half is simply a pleasant drive down WV Route 88 to Wheeling. We finish up at Generations Pub on Route 40, a spacious restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating. The mid-point rest stop will be at the Sheetz on WV Route 2 just north of Wellsburg. If you’re not comfortable dining out, feel free to drive along with us on one or both of the legs before returning home on your own.

We will meet in the McDonalds parking lot between 11:00 and 11:45. Driver’s meeting will take place at 11:45 sharp, with cars on their way by noon. We should arrive at the Sheetz rest stop around 1:15, and at Generations Pub around 2:30. This off peak hour will afford us easy access to seating, and more space for distancing. If you need information, or want an advance copy of the route instructions, email me at rickbrown1956@outlook.com.
