Well yes, we DID have a great time…

Made the drive to Stone Hill Winery in Hermann on 15 August and all who participated had a major large time. About 30 participated in close to 20 cars, including a bevy of TR6s (natch!), two Spitfires, one TR8 and one TR3, plus a couple of BMWs, one Toyota MR2 and a couple of other vehicles.

The last time the club made the run to Hermann we did pretty much the standard route: MO 94 south to Washington, then MO 100 west to the quaint town on the Missouri River. This time around one of our members came up with a much more entertaining route, nary a straight line between Wildwood and the winery, taking us through Labadie, close by Union and into Hermann via the back way, up from the south. The weather was perfect…okay, it did get a bit toasty in the cars BUT the drive was worth the two hours and we all enjoyed great food and the Stone Hill gift shop at the end of the trail.

As always, if you have an interesting vehicle (or even semi-interesting vehicle), feel free to join us for one of our driving events. Our big one for September is the All British Car & Cycle Show on Saturday the 18th at Creve Coeur Lake Park. We’re going to meet in advance of the big annual event for a quick breakfast, then drive as a group to the park. Keep an eye on www.sltoa.org for more info as the weekend approaches.
