REDMG003The British Car Club of Charleston began in 1983 with a handful of young men and women and is now 225 members strong and growing steadily. We are proud to state that the average monthly meeting attendance is 35 to 40 members including an average of 8 to 10 women.

Cotton Gin Run and Fly-In

Valentine's Cotton GinThe Cotton Run on the 15th was a lot of fun. The club went up picturesque Hwy 61 to Cope and had a grand tour of the Valentine’s Cotton Gin, along with a great visit to the general store, where we were treated to 5 cent Cokes and a lot of history. Lunch at Miller’s Breadbasket was a treat with Miller regaling us with his vision of building a 2/3 replica of Noah’s Ark.

The next day the Club attended the South Carolina Breakfast Club Fly-In at Mt. Pleasant Regional. It was a brisk day and rainy so not as many aircraft as usual but several nice ones including an intrepid pilot of this Stearman. Notice the open cockpit, a real flyer, indeed. We had a great breakfast and listened to the meeting, plenty of laughs from the flying Club’s president Gerald’s welcome. It’s always a fun morning at the Fly-In. Special thanks to Gordon Hill and Paul Palmer for starting this tradition.
