The past month saw a varied assortment of events—from visiting a Wisconsin farm with self-milking cows, rallyes to the ends of the earth, vintage cars racing in a gentlemanly manner to haggis-slinging at Highland games.

What could possibly top that? Well, even though the recent air temperature is cooler than normal, Summer is not over and we have many upcoming events that should get your attention and out driving the roads.

Check out the new events this month’s issue and schedule yourself to have some fun and join the group.
