Picnic at the Palos Verdes Botanical Gardens

Our first social event will be a picnic on July 10th at the magnificent Palos Verdes Botanical Gardens.

Pack a picnic basket and drinks and drive your Ferrari through the rolling hills of the Palos Verdes peninsula. We have arranged for an exclusive parking area for the steeds on the lawn amidst the lush vegetation of the gardens where they will be on display for everyone to enjoy.

Please arrive around 10:00 am to allow for a leisurely lunch in the Shade Garden which has 4 or 5 round tables and lots of grass for picnic blankets. There will be a $10 per car entry fee which the club will donate to the South Coast Botanic Garden Foundation. Entry to the Gardens is $5 for adults and $3 for seniors and students.

What a wonderful opportunity to help the community, meet your fellow members of the Southwest region and enjoy all those beautiful Ferraris - we look forward to seeing you all there!

Please RSVP to Tom Brockmiller - home: (310) 530-1004, work: (310) 530-9222 - so that we can estimate how many cars will be attending.

The Palos Verdes Botanical Gardens is located at 26300 Crenshaw Blvd. in Palos Verdes.

Ferraris on Rodeo Drive II - The Ultimate Father's Day

On Father's Day, Sunday, June 19th, 1994 Rodeo Drive will once again play host to the world's most glamorous and exotic marque -Ferrari.

Last year's event marked the introduction of the Ferrari 348 Spyder. This year, the Ferrari Club of America's Southwest region helps the City of Beverly Hills celebrate Los Angeles' hosting of the World Cup of Soccer. For an entire month during the World Cup games, the city is "saluting the world" by recognizing each of the participating countries through individual day-long celebrations.

What better way to honor Italy than to display its most revered marque amid the splendor of the elegant Italian boutiques along Rodeo Drive?

You are invited to enter this second annual event, compete for prizes and awards and enjoy the hospitality, entertainment and ambiance of Beverly Hills.

This show is open to all pre-1974 Ferraris with classes determined by the entry and traditional marque classifications to allow equitable competition. However, space along the Drive is limited so sign up as soon as possible. The entry form is on page 8 of the newsletter.

A completed entry form must be submitted for acceptance consideration. The Committee will determine classes based on the entry. Only one block will be utilized so space is severely limited. Preference will be given in the order entries are received. The Committee reserves the right to accept or reject any entry and all entries will be notified as to acceptance or rejection. All entrants must be in position on Rodeo Drive by 9am and remain until the close of the Concours. No signs, displays, stanchions, or illustrations will be allowed.
