The WCLM Kick-Off!

The first ever West Coast Lotus Meet in the Emerald City, Seattle, Washington began in the late afternoon of July 4th!

The hotel parking lot had filled with Lotus cars and any number of Lotus enthusiasts could found looking at cars, talking with one another and meeting and greeting others as they arrived.

At the WCLM registration each WCLMer received a neat draw-string green and yellow back-sack courtesy of Dietsch Werks along with a handsome denim 2013 WCLM shirt emblazed with the 2013 WCLM logo. A bit later the bar opened and the party had officially started!

After some food, drinks and conversation, 2013 WCLM Chairman, Doug Jackson of the host Evergreen Lotus Car Club shared a few opening remarks, reviewed the schedule for the following days and passed out awards to the person(s) who drove the longest distance in a Lotus to get to the WCLM, Oldest Lotus present and the Newest Lotus present.

After the festivities many walked down to the Bellevue City Center Park to be entertained by a huge fireworks display! The 2013 West Coast Lotus Meet was off with a BANG!
