I made a real effort to attend but after sitting in traffic/rain on Northern State Parkway for over 30 minutes and only going 5 miles got off and came home. The traffic advisory signs said delays were for the next dozen exits and I hadn’t gone beyond Roslyn Rd.! Sorry ! But I do have something I wanted to bring along for the group/Society which I will get to Howard.

Another great meeing !

Hopefully OBVR will be able to deliver on their promises of repairing the damage their people did to the LIMP bridge on their property and then we can start a process to see how it can be restored to its former state along with making a loop so antique cars can once more ride that portion of LIMP.
