2012 National Monterey Meet


This was one of those rare picture perfect weather weekends where the sun was out most of the day.  Our club president Andrew Romanowski created a luxurious Saturday evening gala dinner event.  The evening began with a champagne reception by Domain Chandon.  Andrew's orange Murciélago was wrapped in pink this year in support of a cure for Brest cancer.  As you entered the main foyer there were several areas to explore.  Heavy hors d'oeuvres were served along with a choice several Italian red & white wines during the cocktail hour.  There was a silent auction set up in one room with many exciting items including a 2013 NFL Super Bowl package and  a Top Gun experience in a fighter jet.  Dinner was fabulous with a choice of sea bass or veal shanks. After dinner there were hand rolled cigars and a fireside Glenmorangie scotch tasting featuring their 18 year old single malt. 

It was a wonderful weekend although I am sad to say we lost 3 great Lamborghini Club members and friends during the last year.  Friday evening, on the Mariposa's patio, some friends of Akbar Hassan raised a toast to him.  You can find those pictures here.  The two other long time members that passed away were Fred Paroutaid & Monte Patterson. They will all be dearly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families and friends.
