As you may have heard, BATOC will have the honor of chauffeuring / parading the 1972 Oakland A’s World Series Championship team onto the field before the A’s vs Red Sox game on June 4th. How cool will that be? BATOC, (with the assistance of SCVTC) will parade our cars onto the field, with each car carrying an alumni member of the 1972 team, for a Pre- Game 50th Anniversary ceremony. Following the ceremony, we will “round the bases” again as we chauffer the team off the field and to our seats. The A’s have provided us with 2 free special section tickets to the game for each car, along with protected, security-guard parking for our group. The A’s will also be making a $250.00 donation to BATOC’s treasury for our efforts. With SCVTC’s help, we have provided 20 Thunderbirds to this special Oakland A’s event -18 Little Birds and 2 Retro’s. My special thanks to all of our participating members and to SCVTC for making this day possible. It will be a fun day and one for all three teams….theirs and ours. Also, a big Thank You to Guy for organizing this event and for covering this month’s meeting in my absence, as Susan & I galivant around New England…can you say “BA-HA- BA”? LOL
In other news, we are looking forward to BATOC’s 64th Anniversary on June 18th. There is a flyer inside and we still have open spaces for our Murder Mystery event and catered BBQ. The club is subsidizing a significant portion of the event so there is no reason for anyone to miss this one. If you have not signed up and would like to attend, reach out to Guy right away and add your name to the list. 925-357-7877. Thanks to Guy & Mary for putting this together, as well. 
Two more fun events on the calendar include the Elkhorn Slough trip in July courtesy of the Verhoek’s and our own overnighter (times two) to Morro Bay in August. I believe we have sold all 17 rooms – PLUS 1 – at this point, but if you would like to join the group let me know and we will get you set up. This will be a great trip. Call me at 415-269-0055. 
We can also celebrate the return of the Danville “Hot Summer Sunday” car show on August 21. This is the show we used to do on Thursday nights in Danville that has returned Post-Covid on Sundays. Unfortunately, the July show conflicts with our Elkhorn Slough outing, but we will be participating in the August 21st show. Put it on your calendar and more details will follow.
On that note, I will sign off as we have a 6:00 AM airport call tomorrow, and I will most certainly regret it if I continue to babble on here for no good reason. Have a great Memorial Day weekend and see you all at our next meeting on June 11th.
Good Night from Boston 
Dave & Susan
