I’d like to start with giving another thank you to the Lotus community for their enthusiastic response to WCLM 2014. We have had tremendous response from Lotus fans and since our last update we have even gotten some international participants from Canada and Germany. The WCLM is your chance to meet a large number of fellow Lotus fans from all over the Western US and the world.

Sierra Boat Restoration Tour
I am happy to announce that we are having a new event on friday afternoon. Those folks who wish to have a shorter drive than the High Sierra Tour can now opt to go for a shorter drive around the lake along with a stop at the 60,000 square foot facilities of Sierra Boat in Carnelian Bay. We are still finalizing the exact details about this event and will post the final details on the WCLM website in due course.
Established in 1952, Sierra Boat is one of the oldest and largest antique and classic boat restorers in the country. The quality restoration of wooden boats includes the fine craftsmanship and finishes, but it is much more than that. In order to restore a boat properly; you must research the boat as to correctness of wood, finish, upholstery and mechanical details. With a process that has many similarities to car restoration, the hour long tour of their facilities will be a revelation to any fan of mechanical restoration.
We have also been hard at work on the official T-shirt of the WCLM which will be given to all WCLM attendees. Kiyoshi has done an outstanding job on the graphic design and we can now give you a sneak peek at design. Done in a JPS-styled color scheme, the t-shirt shows correctly scaled silhouettes of important Lotus passenger cars starting from the Seven and continuing down to the Evora. We will have a limited number of extra t-shirts at the event for folks who would like to buy some extras for friends and family.
I would like to welcome two new associate sponsors – Sports Car World and Sector 111. Both have a long history of supporting Lotus and we are delighted to have them on-board as sponsors of the 2014 West Coast Lotus Meet. The 2014 WCLM would not be possible without the generous support of all our sponsors and I’d like to personally thank them all for extending their support to the event.
