  •      Without being the Grand National, our Regional National Meet was pretty grand. It was held at Ruby’s Diner in Redondo Beach on August 7. It was held just a week before the Grand National, which may account for there being fewer than 45 entries. Certainly the weather was not an obstacle!

         The awards at our Regional were made by Calvin Jones and were a triumph in themselves: matted, gilt-framed certificates covered with glass. Each looked very expensive. Lots of work, but apparently within budget. We did not award Third Place this year and thereby streamlined the awards ceremony, until some CHP officers arrived to tout a car event of their own.

         There is something about the ocean air, the skill of our managers and the strolling from car to car that just makes this particular meet very relaxing. Our peer judging system helps keep things mellow, too.

         If there is a hectic part of the meet, it is inside Ruby’s itself. Their outdoor seating is much more relaxed, and it’s always fun to watch the help there, some of whom are in their very first jobs. At lunch, your editor enjoyed gossip about cars on eBay and was so mellowed out by the end of lunch that he nearly overlooked the rest of his deli-cious milk shake.
