Upcoming Events Canadian XK Jaguar Register/Canadian Classic MG Club A Note from Al Moss I regret to inform you that HCP (High Country Party), which was supposed to take place October 7-9 this year, has been can- celled, or, more properly, placed on backorder until, hopefully, next year.<br><br> If everything works out for 2009, I will inform you later this year.In the meantime, have a Great '8! (Please pass this on to a ny of our poor friends who don't have internet (e-male) access. Thanks) I have no idea why, but I have been busily writing an autobiography.<br><br> This great tome will be 175 pages, with over 100 photos, mostly in color. It will cover my car, motorcycle and horse-related activities, plus a history of Moss Motors. (Naturally, all inter- spersed with a bit of Al Moss humour).<br><br> I hope to have the book finished and printed sometime next month (February). I will also have my new website up and running at the same time: http://www.racermoss.com (I think all you need is: racermoss.com) Please check it out later!
