Sorry, everyone...  I had a problem with my SLR today - I'm still trying to salvage pictures I took at Katie's this morning. 
We had two Sevens, an Elise, and two Evoras today.

In the meantime, I took this pic of my car, and two friends' cars, with my phone, at oh-dark-thirty at Katie's.

Great photos-just like a magazine shot esp of the Esprit and Elan driving on the gravel! According to BOG facebook page, Lotus winners as follows:

1st- Mark Whitaker-69 Elan

2nd- Kevin Kilcoyne- 2005 Elise

3rd- Bob Scates- 78 Esprit

Was a nice show even with the decrease in number of cars. I liked the Cortina Estate- how cool it would have been with a twink under the bonnet. No Jensen Healeys-too bad. Missed the Morris Traveller from before as well.

Cheers, Mark Whitaker

It's time for another NoVA Lotus event!

We have had feedback that people want ‘more events’. Mark Franke has arranged a meet-up at a new British pub in Vienna, VA.

We encourage you to send us your suggestions for club events!

The location: Hawk & Griffin pub, at 435 Maple Ave W, Vienna, VA.

The schedule: Sunday, Sept. 26th, 2021, 10:00AM.

More info on the pub:



It would be very helpful if you would RSVP in advance, to robert_collum@hotmail.com, so we can make sure we have adequate seating in the pub.


Bob Collum, Mark Franke

P.S.: The Hawk and Griffin is near the intersection of 123 (Maple Avenue West) and Nutley Street SW. If you are coming from the direction of Tyson's Corner, keep a sharp eye out for the small-ish sign on your right, and you can turn into their parking lot. If you miss the turn, turn right on Nutley, and immediately turn right behind the Wawa. Pass by the forest of Tesla superchargers, drive on behind the Hawk & Griffin building, and park in the Hawk and Griffin parking lot.

If you are coming Northeast, up 123 (Maple Avenue West), just turn left at the Nutley intersection, and make the very first right turn behind the Wawa. Drive past the Tesla superchargers (usually a lot of Teslas parked in a row), continue behind the Hawk & Griffin building, and park in their lot.
