Car Show at the Beloit Club

Sunday, October 4, 2020

Eleven cars and 15 members of both the Wisconsin and Chicagoland Sections got together Sunday October 4 at the Beloit Club in Beloit WI for an informal car show.

The weather was a bit chilly but the skies were clear and blue as cars began arriving around 11:00.  With the upper drive of the club to ourselves we had lots of space to show the cars, which ranged from almost new to a 1980 450SL.

A highlight of the event was when we finally had the opportunity to present Jim Loseke with his 2019 Member of the Year Award.  This was long overdue; congratulations Jim!

We had anticipated Beloit Club members voting for the winning car, but the golf course apparently took priority over looking at and judging our beautiful cars.  Consequently we put all the participants’ names in “the hat” and asked a Beloit Club employee to draw the winner.  Dean Pearson and his 2015 E-550 Coupe took home Best of Show honors.

Everyone had a great time looking at and showing off the cars, enjoyed lunch in the Club’s tavern room, and shared some much needed socially distanced camaraderie and Gemütlichkeit. 

A final note.  The Beloit Club was happy enough about the event to reach out and ask that we start planning for a similar event in 2021, bigger, better and hopefully a bit warmer!
