SHARON — The town of Sharon has refused to let go of summer and was awarded a gold medal Saturday, Sept. 23, for the ever-more-popular car show at Christ Church Episcopal. 

Twenty cars assembled on the grassy roadside across from the church. They ranged in age from a 1912 Stanley Steamer to a 1969 Porsche. 

Every entry was a significant and interesting part of automotive history. 

A standout was Sam Posey’s 1955 Mercedes Benz 300sl Gullwing brought by his son, John. 

Bill Braislin’s 1948 Mercury convertible and Brad and...

Catching up with biggie smalls in the Housatonic River

By the time you read this I will have returned from a week on the Esopus Creek in New York, after catching record numbers of trout, splitting several cords of firewood by hand and generally being manly.
The summer on the Housatonic River has been excellent. In sharp contradistinction to last summer, it has been raining at regular intervals, and the river has not dipped below 200 cubic feet per second at Falls Village.

Outstanding elegance and a day of rain

SALISBURY — Particularly gorgeous weather graced the Labor Day Weekend Historic Festival 35 at Lime Rock Park, presented by the Prestige Family of Fine cars. 
Except of course for Sunday, a miserably gray, wet day for the Sunday in the Park Concours d’Elegance. A few hardy souls came out nonetheless to display their perfectly buffed vintage autos, or to look under the hoods of the cars arrayed around the track. Also on Sunday was an auction of notable vintage vehicles by Dragone Auction.

Vintage car parade to benefit Corner Pantry

LIME ROCK — In 2011, when Lime Rock Park President Skip Barber first had staffers organize a parade of vintage sports cars and race cars through Lakeville and Salisbury on the Thursday prior to the long Labor Day weekend, the idea was simply to have a fun, community involved kick-off to the “Historic Festival” weekend, a Northwest Corner fixture for 35 years. 
In addition to the festival competitors, local people who owned sports cars — models from the mid-1970s and older — were encouraged to enter the parade at no charge.

Can you out swim/bike/run a Naval Academy athlete? (Probably not)

SHARON — By exactly 8 a.m. on Saturday Aug. 12, coffee had long ago been brewed, breakfast eaten and leisurely routines left behind as 62 competitors lined up on the sand at the Sharon town beach on Mudge Pond. After taking a year off due to low sign-ups, the Sharon Sprint Triathlon returned with roaring enthusiasm and perfect weather (another boon to the Sharon Parks and Recreation Commission, whose Arts & Crafts Fair last weekend just narrowly escaped the predicted storms).
