It happened again! Marilyn and Carol rang the breakfast bell and COTV came running. At least about 30 members ran or drove to The Bomb Shelter Restaurant at Sky Dive Perris to do what we do best – talk and eat.
The usual suspects were first in place, although Chuck Calagna and Bruce Mofford trade places for #1 on the scene and today was Chuck’s day. When the second wave arrived (Glenores, McDermotts and Webers), we found Skip Hipp keeping the other two company. Then, just as the ladies at the restaurant got the registers fired up and the cooks behind the counter got the griddles fired up, the rest of the group started to pour in. The gate for parking on the tarmac had to be manually opened by someone from the hangar so that slowed things down, but only a little.
Bob and Monica Clark were able to fit us into their schedule today and it was good to see them since work seems to limit their ability to participate. It is a long drive from San Diego just for breakfast, so we were really glad to have their company. Marti Schoeman was also able to join us and since she is often in China for business, we were glad to catch her in between trips.
For the most part, the rest of the attendees were real regulars and we are always glad to see all of them and catch up on what is being done to cars and what trips are being planned. We look forward to more of the same next time with Carol and Marilyn.
