[xk8] The Jeg-Lovers Picnic is next week!

Hi Gang,

A group of Jag-Lovers recently traveled hundreds of miles to get
together on Martha’s Vineyard for a long weekend adventure.
Details of the weekend can be found at

There were several of us who had never met, and none of us had ever
met our host. As always seems to be the case when Jag-Lovers get
together, we had a great time talking, exploring, chatting, eating,
conversing, driving, and basically acting like a bunch of old
buddies who for some strange reason had never met before. It’s the
same feeling I get when I attend the annual Jag-Lovers Picnic.

There is a write-up and slide show about the previous picnic at
This is the fourth year of the Jag-Lovers picnic, and it promises
to be better than ever. Family-oriented motorcyclists will be
joining us for breakfast, which will be served at no additional
charge to any Jag-Lover who arrives in the morning. Everyone is
looking forward to a break in this rainy weather, and it looks as
if the Jag-Lovers will again be blessed. AccuWeather predicts ‘‘A
good deal of sunshine’’ for June 1, with a high of 75�.

Remember, this is not a car show (although I imagine there will be
quite a few Jaguars there), it is a gathering of like-minded
individuals getting together in person to share the camaraderie
that was started on these lists. We have a private picnic grounds,
an all-you-can-eat picnic lunch, door prizes, a 30 mile run through
the back roads, and a lot of friendly people having a good time.

On Saturday night the locals get together at the picnic grounds
with the out-of-town Jag-Lovers. Some leave for supper at 6:00,
then return afterwards for the June edition of our famous ‘‘First
Tuesday’’ meeting (see the write-up in the March 2002 edition of
Porter’s ‘‘XK Gazette’’). We sit around, drink beer, swap lies,
admire cars, share pictures and videos, and generally have a great
time, extending far into the night.

Anyone who is within a day’s drive of New Jersey should take the
opportunity to meet some of the other great people who contribute
to these lists. Send me an email at MikeEck@optonline.net and I
will send you more details and directions.

Hope to see you there!
