The BOG 2017 team continues to plan events for our next show. We held the annual planning meeting with the Gunston Hall staff on January 22, 2017 and had a rousing discussion with valuable inputs from all who attended. Again, if you have an idea(s) to make BOG 2017 even better, please email your ideas to
John Buescher at jbuescher1616@gmail.com. All ideas are encouraged and welcomed!

The planning committee is especially proud to include the Hagerty Youth Judging Award Program being coordinated by RJ Fortwengler and Sheila Slipper. This is another way that the Club is attempting to encourage our youth to become interested in British car and continue the love for these automobiles. Additionally, BOG is bring back the Kid’s Entertainment Tent which is being coordinated by Sharon Edelstein. Again, we are striving to make this year’s show a more family event.

As a side note, with all the wet weather we have been experiencing, we have actively starting planning a backup location at Gunston Hall as BOG will happen rain or shine. If the show field where we typically hold BOG should become water logged and unusable, we have determined that the parking lot behind and to the left side of the Gunston Hall Visitor’s Center is capable of parking approximately 150 cars and several food trucks. We envision that the show will be moved there. Patrick Carter, Field Marshal and Field Layout Coordinator is developing a contingency layout plan to have “in our hip pocket,” just in case.
