2nd Annual Botanical Gardens Picnic

Some of you will remember last year's picnic at the South Coast Botanical Gardens. Organized by Tom Brockmiller, this was one of the Region's first events and it was great. The gardens provided a beautiful backdrop to a low-key gathering of Ferraris and their owners. Well, it's back!

You are invited to the second annual South Coast Botanical Gardens Picnic on Sunday, September 10th. Enjoy the beautiful setting with cars displayed on the lawn, a view of our city and a casual "fun Concours." You bring a picnic and we'll supply the drinks. Call Tom for details and a reserved spot.

November Meeting at Penske

Mark your calendars now for what is sure to be a great General Membership meeting in November. Roger Penske's organization has very generously offered to host us at his Penske automotive museum. Located beside his Longo Toyota dealership in El Monte, the Penske museum contains many of the Penske race cars, including this year's cars, which will be back from the Indy car series by then. This is a very private collection, not normally opened to the public.

The event will include dinner and will only cost $20.00 per person so be sure to reserve Tuesday, November 28th at 6:00 p.m. now. More details will follow in next month's Sempre Ferrari.

Il Giardino Moderno

Following the Beverly Hills car show Murray & Rose Cogan and Judd went to this wonderful new Italian restaurant. Love Italian cars? Love Italian food? You will love Il Giardino Moderno. Prices are moderate and well worth every penny.

Tom Brockmiller has planned a group dinner. We will order from the restaurants menu. If you cannot join us try them! - Tell them you are with the Ferrari Club of America.

The group dinner is scheduled to take place at the restaurant (Il Giardino Moderno "Ristorante", 8925 Olympic Blvd., Beverly Hills) on Tuesday, October 3rd at 7:00 p.m.

Please call Kat to make your reservations by October 2nd at 800-477-7166 Ext 100!

Yosemite Trip

Following our successful joint venture to Furnace Creek with the Ferrari Owner's Club, they have invited us on another Ride and Drive. Details are below.

If ever there was a time and place to exercise your Italian Horse at your own pace (fast or slow) on back-country, two-lane black-top roads that even the "Black and Whites" don't know about; roads created by God, some would say, especially for Enzo's creations... well, now is the time, and just wait 'til you hear about the place! Think about taking three whole days out of your life for the purpose of having more relaxing fun than you've ever had with your Ferrari (or any "iron") driving through some of California's most scenic by-ways, offering touches of fantastic fall foliage! Are you listening? Well, we've got it all for you!!!

The dates are October 6th, 7th, and 8th at where else but Yosemite. While getting there is half the fun, the first week of October is Heaven in this region of unusual beauty, The crowds will be long gone, and the weather will be perfect, for Yosemite is at its best before it sleeps the winter away under a blanket of snow.

We'll bid farewell to the L.A. area on Friday morning for the beginning of our backroads blitz. Following "R & R" on Friday night, it's onward from our "halfway station" on Saturday morning... destination somewhere between 8,842 foot high Half Dome and 7,569 floor high El Capitan. But, never fear, oxygen is not required because our accommodations are on the Valley floor. The choice is either the beautiful and historic Ahwahnee or the Yosemite Lodge, located near the foot of Yosemite Falls. Regardless of choice, we will gather at the Ahwahnee for an 8:30 p.m. dinner, in the main dining room. The dress code for dinner at the Hotel is "Coat and Tie" for men (jacket required) and Dress/nice<
