Coventry Foundation - Posted 1/26/2018

There is a non-profit foundation that has been established by JCNA and Jaguar enthusiasts to preserve, cars, memorabilia and documents for future generations.  They already have a college scholarship established and ready to go.  The Coventry Foundation runs only on donations.  Several JCNA Clubs have already sighed up to become annual sponsors or the Coventry Foundation.  There were four pages in the Sept/Oct Jaguar Journal dedicated to the Coventry Foundation describing what they do and where they are going.  Please consider becoming a sponsor of the Coventry Foundation to help them preserve the Marque and the physical property they have acquired.  JOANT is supporting the Foundation.


R.I.P. David Nichols 1/14/2018

Our Jaguar family lost a special friend this morning. David Nichols passed away due to heart complications during hip surgery. David was the Club's Concours Chief Judge and he loved all Jaguars. He has been a member of this club since the '60s and will be profoundly missed. Memorials can be made to St. David of Wales Episcopal church in Denton (information, below). Please keep Judy and their family in your prayers.

Let's celebrate David's love of Jaguars by having a maximum turn-out of club members driving their Jags to the following services:

2017 JCNA International Jaguar Festival

Here is a link to all the photos that were taken during the five day event. It was a great event and our Region was represented and came home with some nice pewter plate awards.


JCNA 60th Anniversary Collectables

Just wanted to let you all know the JCNA 60th Badge and pin set as well as all 4 versions of the JCNA 60th club poster are now posted in the JCNA shoppe. The Pin and badge will be available now (FOR THE FIRST 100 SETS ONLY). Order 101 through what ever number is ordered will not be available until 4 to 6 weeks after Feb. 28 2018. The quality of all items is high and the badges were contracted with the same company that made the JOA badges. 



The 2018 JCNA AGM (Annual General Meeting) is scheduled for San Antonio, Texas, March 22 to 24, 2018.  We urge you to send your own club member(s) to represent your club to support your wishes on how you would like to have JCNA move forward.  If you can't find a member willing to travel to San Antonio, Gary Vaughan and myself are available to support you and your Club.  All the details are on the JCNA website. Thank you to Brian Blackwell and the entire SAJC for hosting this event next year! In addition, Ron Wallis, JCOH, will be our newly elected SC Regional Director replacing Gary Vaughan for the 2018/2019 term. I look forward to working with Ron for the next two years. Thank you, Gary, for your many many years of excellent service to JCNA.  



There is a proposal that has been submitted by the Jaguar Owners Club of Los Angeles to host the 2018 JCNA International Jaguar Festival, November 1 to 4, 2018.  They are proposing to hold it at the Fess Parker Resort Spa in Santa Barbara, CA.  The proposal has not yet been accepted.  That will not happen until the AGM at the end of March in Texas.  This promises to be a good fun event for everyone, whether or not you bring your car all the way there.  Something for you to think about is Route 66 runs right to Los Angeles. How many of you have ever thought of making that historic trip?
