    Pat Hung, a half dozen Giulietta drivers and I will be staying in Paso Robles on March 31, April 1, and touring area roads Friday and Saturday. We would love to have you join us with your Giulietta Spider.
    Best Regards, Brad Baum

    At the present time, I'm doing only the 69 tandem brake masters. I've sent you a private message with my contact info.

    You might have noticed that Patrick Hung and I are bringing together several Giulietta's April 8-9 in Paso Robles, for the California Targa Tour / Ralley. It would be great if you could join us with your Giulietta as well !
    All the best, Brad

    We had fun drives in both October and November, and all of a sudden we're in January and need to start planning for the next one - a good thing.

    I've always wanted to do a multiple-day Jaunt, as one can only drive so far and back in one day; even better yet would be to get the Southern California or Oregon guys to meet us for a drive when we get to our overnight stop. With Brad Baum's help, this will in fact happen in April of this year. We're going to run the Jaunt with the existing Targa Califonia (previously "No Frills Iron Bottom Tour", for pre-'75 sports cars). Dave (TreCup here on the BB) plans great drives, I hear, so we simply show up as a group and drive with the Porsches; the cost is $80/car. The TC has traditionally been a Porsche-centric event, but Dave is enthusiastically inviting Alfas to come along on the drive. This is not a competitive event, but it'll be fun to run with other sports cars of the same era, and there will be more than just Porsches.

    Full details have not been published by the TC (this happens on their website end of next week; I'm sure that Dave will post that in this forum as well), but we know that the run starts in Thousand Oaks in SoCal on the morning of Thursday, 4/8, followed by two night-stays in Paso Robles; it seems then that the majority of the fun driving would be around Paso Robles. Return date to SoCal is 4/10, I presume. SoCal guys would simply drive up with Brad from Thousand Oaks, and meet the NorCal guys in Paso Robles on the evening of the 8th. I might drive down to Thousand Oaks on the 7th so as to drive up with the SoCal Giuliettas, and I'd welcome anyone from NorCal to do that with me. The hotel to stay at in Paso Robles is the Black Oak Best Western Hotel. Please book your rooms early and ask for the Targa California group rate; I booked my room today for $84 (two double beds); there are still many rooms available, but when the Porsche guys start signing up, they'll dry up.

    Hopefully some of you are able to join us on this very exciting Jaunt! Please let me know if you're planning on it. We already have at least six cars confirmed, 3 North and 3 South; interestingly, four of these are black Spiders; they're pretty fast, ya know...

    This event will not conflict with the One Lap of Marin drive, which will take place on the following Saturday, 4/17. It will also leave one day free (Sunday 4/11) to attend the CSRG Alfa celebration at Infineon Raceway, which is what I plan on doing once I get back from the Jaunt Saturday.

    If this event goes well, we'll plan for each year's Spring Giulietta Jaunt to be a multi-day event, with the Fall Jaunt remaining one-day and local. A great place to go for 2011 would be Oregon; I can think of a number of friends up there who could help us plan for the best driving experience possible.

    Happy New Year to everyone.
