- Awards dinner
- Camaraderie with fellow enthusiasts
The tradition of an annual meet sponsored by our club began in 1975 when about 20 enthusiasts met over Labor Day weekend in Grants Pass, Oregon.
They resolved to make such meetings annual events, and the annual "West Coast Meet" was born.
They also began the East Coast Meet series for our members living in the east. In 1976 our Club organized and sponsored the first-ever visit by Donald Healey, the Austin-Healey's creator, to club events in North America.
In 2000 the name of the event was changed to "Healey Rendezvous" to better reflect the national scope of this event.
Our Club was also a sponsor and/or supporter of the four "international" Healey meets held in the USA.
The first of these was at Snowmass, Colorado in 1982;
followed by Breckenridge, Colorado in 1992;
Park City, Utah in 1997;
Lake Tahoe, California in 2002;
Nelson, B.C. in 2006
Richland, WA in 2007.
