Welcome from our President!
We appreciate your interest in our club and thank you for visiting our website.
Our club has grown and become very active since its inception. In 2004 the club started a monthly club drive. These drives are scheduled the third (3rd) Saturday of the month, starting in April and running through November rain or shine.
Some members attend car shows; although, the majority of us just enjoy driving our Little British Cars. On occasion, a group of members will attend a car show, generally in the Cincinnati or Louisville areas. Additionally, the club has become involved in the annual Keeneland Concours d’Elegance, which is becoming one of Kentucky’s premier car shows. The event is held on the grounds of the Keeneland Race Course each year and all proceeds benefit the Kentucky Children’s Hospital.
The Club has only one fundraising effort each year, and it’s pretty much a big party. Our event is called the “Bluegrass British Bash” and it is a two-day event that is always held locally in Lexington, KY, during the weekend of the famous Kentucky Derby. We get attendees from all over the mid-west and as far away as Florida and Canada.
Other annual events include the fish fry in September, usually held the first Saturday after Labor Day, and the Christmas dinner in December.
The Club meets on the first Tuesday of the month at various locations around the area and the locations are either discussed at a previous meeting or announced via email.
Dues are $20.00 per year for a family membership. Membership includes two name badges and a subscription to the British Marque newspaper, which contains articles and updates from British car clubs all across the Eastern U.S.
Though the Club is active and does a lot, the best part of the Club is its members. We have been blessed with a super group of folks who are all engaged and ready to contribute. We pride ourselves on the absence of formality and by-laws, and appreciate that we simply want to enjoy each other’s company and the common interest of driving our cars.
E-mails are sent to keep Club members informed of events and the members. If you would like to receive our e-mails for a while to check us out please let us know.
We hope you will consider membership and we invite you to attend a Club meeting and/or one of our monthly drives. We encourage you to mark your calendar for our annual Bluegrass British Bash event in May.
Feel free to contact our current Club president, Ed Howell, with any questions
