September 2017 Club Event

On September 23rd, members of the Goat Herd and their family and their friends have the opportunity to visit OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) for a tour to see artifacts from the Italian historic site of Pompeii. Pompeii is located about 30 miles from the city of Naples, near the Bay of Naples. Pompeii and its sister city Herculaneum were destroyed by the still active volcano Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D., along with smaller communities in that area. Mt. Vesuvius has erupted more than 50 times, but the most famous eruption caused the destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

For those who would like to attend this tour of famous Pompeii artifacts at OMSI, we will meet at OMSI, located at 1945 SE Water in Portland. The meeting time will be at 9:15am on Saturday, so we can enter the museum as a group. Note that OMSI does not open until 9:30am on Saturday.

The price of admission is Adults: $26.00, Seniors (63+): $22.00, Ages 3-13: $17.00. There is an additional charge of $5 for parking, so car pool if you can. For those who would like, plan on dining for lunch after the tour. For those who would like to dine after the tour, we can discuss a restaurant after the tour. A pizza parlor, or even the Bomber on McLaughlin would work. It makes for a fun experience for everyone attending this tour, and provides for an almost full day of our favorite club activities: fun, food and friendship. Also, though the OMSI attendance price may be a little on the high side, it’s still much less expensive than flying to Italy to view the site (not including hotel and food and tips and LOTS of walking and not being able to speak Italian and carrying your own luggage from place to place and being recognized as an American because we don’t wear Italian shoes and their pizza isn’t very good and they have those Italians who like to grab every woman’s …. they see, and… well, you get the point). See you there? [Not to be typecast, this article was written by a Mexican with an Italian last name!]

It has been just over 25 years of fun, friends, and great cars! 2015 ended our annual event, and the Herd wants to thank all of the faithful followers that made TIGER RUN such an incredible success! Also thanks to the members of the Herd that worked so hard every year to put on the event. A lot of help was received from family members, and members of other clubs that helped cover the bases if needed. Can’t say enough about our Pontiac family celebrities that supported us over the years.

Now for the good news! Keep the date year 2020 open as The Goat Herd is testing the waters to determine if we can successfully have a Tiger Run reunion, to be called Tiger Re-Run. There seems to be enough enthusiasm among members and non-members to warrant pursuing another gr-r-reat event. So as not to interfere with the NW Legends in Seattle’s regional show, the Legends have agreed to postpone their Regional Meet in 2020 so the Goat Herd can a hold Tiger Re-Run event!

If you would like to see the Goat Herd host another event similar to Tiger Run, please e-mail Frank Salerno at: with your thoughts or comments on this event. We would like to hear from you!!
