I really enjoyed it. It was very classy.

I have only positive things to say about the event and the setting! The niceties of the Tiffany gifts, the display summaries of each car and the little booklet listing all of the entrants were very good! I really enjoyed it. It was very classy. As I have said before, I always enjoy interacting with the Bridge graduates and current participants. I hope the event was able to provide a net financial boost for the recipient charities and offers hope for an even greater event in 2020. My friend Joanne Chambers and I plan to attend the PG Rotary Concours Auto Rally on Friday and hope to see you there.

Best regards,

A wide variety of eclectic car classes

I want to compliment you on the Concours today. The smaller size of the group made us spend a little more time and appreciate a wide variety of eclectic car classes in a very comfortable and pleasing environment. You, the crew and the judges did a wonderful job. Looking forward to your next one already!

It was an elegant setting

I had a really good time at the TCAP Concours. It was an elegant setting around the courtyard and the catering and weather were perfect. I enjoyed answering questions about the Rometsch - of course almost nobody had seen one before. With all the fine International entrant I was very surprised to be selected! I hope you can smooth over some of the others who brought fine specimens of their marque (sp?)
