Spring is officially here.  How do I know this? Because it says so on the calendar. If you stick your head out of
the window, you may not be convinced.

That was certainly the case for our first autocross of the season. Unless you were
prepping your amphibious car for some orange cone warfare, you had to sit this one out
due to flooding. But a little monsoon does not discourage us from touring, as was the case for the Whale to
Whale Tail Rallye on March 5. Bob Schoenherr and crew organized a fantastic drive that wound its way up the
coast with some very picturesque stops and a little friendly competition amongst members.

And speaking of Bob Schoenherr, congratulations go out to Bob for being the big Redwood Region winner at
the Zone 7 2010 Awards. Bob was the proud recipient of several awards: First in Concours Street-3 Class,
Concours Street Division Winner, and Concours Rookie of the Year. Bob was also recognized with a special
Dick Cottrell Spirit of the Concours Award. You may also recall that Bob got his mug shot in a recent issue of
Panorama for winning more awards in last years Legends of the Autobahn, which will be returning to Monterey
again this year on the weekend of August 19.

As for events for the month of April, we will be autocrossing on April 9; this will be a non-amphibious car
event. The Hoppy Beer Tour is scheduled for April 17, and another crowd favorite, the Redwood Region
Breakfast Run to Two Bird Cafe in San Geronimo, will be on April 23. Also, Sacramento Valley Region will be
hosting another fantastic CRAB event throughout the weekend of April 29 - May 1.
