    Join us for a leisurely Saturday drive to a small town festival in eastern Oregon formerly known as the Dufur Threshing Bee.  Never been to a threshing bee or tractor pull you say …. Well this is your chance. Dufur is having their Second Annual Vintage Days. This will be your chance to see old-time harvesting equipment in operation.  This includes both horse-drawn threshers and steam powered wheat separators. Go out in the field with the equipment and see it in use. There will also be a tractor pull.  All sorts of old tractors compete to see which machine really has the most power.  All events are free. There is also a pioneer museum and old town Dufur to explore.

    Check out    http://dufurhistoricalsociety.org/days.php

    Of course nothing is better than caravanning with a great bunch of fellow car enthusiasts and the chance to experience some new roads. We will be trying out some new routes in preparation for this year's HOT LAVA.

    We will be meeting at 9:30 and starting at 10:00 am from the Chevron Station parking lot located 31251 SE US 26, Boring (SE corner of intersection of Mt Hood Hwy 26 and Hwy 212, 1.5 miles east of Boring).  We will be traveling along the Mt Hood Highway through Government Camp to Hwy 35, north on Hwy 35 to Forest Rd 44 (Camp Baldwin/Dufur Rd) on to Dufur and Vintage Days Festival (76 miles).

    Doerenbecher Dash for Kids

    Not a club event, but many members support Addie and Jess:

    Doerenbecher benefit luncheon is at PIR on Sunday, Aug. 20, 2017.  We again invite MHMC members to join us by helping prepare and serve lunch to the Doerenbecher patients and families, race participants and the public as a fund raiser.  Donations accepted to benefit Doerenbecher Children’s Hospital.  Woodstock Motorsports will have race cars giving rides for a fee to benefit this charitable weekend event along with other race and exotic cars, large silent auction under a tent, face painting and games for children and of course, watch some great racing events with several classes of race cars.

    Jess and Addie, Woodstock Motorsports, ask MHMC members to volunteer to help setup, cook, serve and clean up a BBQ luncheon on Sunday, August 20th, for the kids, families, racing crews, and the public.  This is a fun event and helps raise funds for children's charities.  The luncheon is free to the children, families and crews.  Donations are welcomed and appreciated from the general public.  

    MHMC volunteers are asked to arrive at the back entrance to PIR by 8:00 AM, afterwards you will have to wait for the 10 minute break between races to cross the track to the infield.  Volunteer for an hour or more, we generally clean up by 2:00 PM. 

    If interested, please register here on the event page or email jessheitmanauto@gmail.com  so we get an idea of how many people to expect.  More details coming soon.

    • Warm Springs, Oregon

    Run to Darkness

    August 21, 2017

    Organizer: Don Peter

    Meeting somewhere in Gresham at 6AM for an early start.

    There's going to be a total solar eclipse near here next summer.  It will reach Madras, Oregon at about 10:20 AM PDT on Monday, August 21.

    Given the publicity the eclipse has gotten, Madras is expected to be packed with visitors.  I'd like to head toward Madras early that morning on Hwy 26 and see how far we can get before the crowd stops us; if we make it to Warm Springs that would be great.

    We should plan on being self-supporting, so we better carry food and drink with us.  Perhaps we can have a tailgate picnic at Government Camp on the way home?

    More to come...
