[concours] Re: [xj] Good Dr. Wins BIG! the Averill coupe

You are right;“continental” is another term that would be better than
national". By the way, we also have another winner in our membership: Steve
Averill took a first “continental” with his beautiful 76 XJ6C (class 11). I
had the privilege of judging his car at one concours last year.

Continental would also apply, as in, “You have the third nicest SIII XJ6 on
the continent, or whatever that was.” Also, you can make continental into
an
adverb (continentally); it’s tough to do with North America (North
Americanally). :slight_smile:

Mark: North America includes Canada, the US, and Mexico and nothing else;
below Mexico is Central America, and below that South America. Since the
JCNA is a three nation organisation (although it seems the Mexicans have
not
paid current dues) then “North American” seems to be the correct term.

Oh, OK, this is the e-mail he was talking about! I thought Dick Howe
might
have been upset at our conversation about leapers, and thought we were
being
provincial in our thinking. Ignore my “Busted” e-mail.

You have to excuse me. I’m just a lowly membership director in a small
club
tucked away in the corner of the U.S. We’ve never had anyone
representing
another country show up at our events (hint, hint), so to us it still
feels
national.

There’s a bit of a linguistic gap, too. National is too confining. OTOH,
it’s definitionally correct to say international, because we are
spanning
three nations, but that’s a bit of an overstatement. Probably the
correct
word would be continentally. (I think North America includes Latin
America – if we stretch beyond there, we’ll have to say
“hemispherically.”)

Hey, the last big meet was the International Jaguar Festival. That
sounds
pretty inclusive.

Mark, thanks; (an aside: let’s call that “internationally”, or “North
American”. I am making a plea for the JCNA to come into the real world
and
stop being provincial. The Jaguar Clubs of North America covers
Mexico,
the
US, and Canada, and the awards are computed from JCNA score in any of
the
three countries. In the face of this reality, to continue to be
US-centric
in terminology is odd to say the least, and possibly worse. Is anyone
listening)
