The forecast shows this rain will be through Katy by 9am. Tell everyone to come if they can, even if they can’t make it till 11 or 12.
Directions to the Spring Thing on Saturday, April 25th
From I-10 going west, pass Hwy 99 and exit Katy Fort Bend Road. Turn left at the light and go to Kingsland Blvd. Turn left again. The first street on the right is Falcon Pointe Drive. Turn right. We will be set up by the tennis courts on the left, probably in the parking lot due to all the rain. I will be there by 9am and you are welcome to come starting then. Everyone needs to be there by 10am. If you are bringing a trailer, when you turn on Falcon Pointe Dr. continue past the tennis courts until you see the Country Club on the right. Park in the parking lot but they asked us to stay to the right side of the parking lot. You can unload there and drive back to the tennis courts.
They will have the grill open for us selling coffee & donuts in the morning, and burgers, hotdogs, grilled chicken sandwiches and Caesar salad at lunch. They will have non-alcoholic beverages, wine & beer also. See you there.
33803 Pecan Hill Dr.

A 2014 new member provided this update on his MGA:
I am a new member of the club and I would like to share a few photos and the history of my 1960 MGA.
As you can see from the photos, my car is currently being carefully restored by Ron Redding at 5R Restorations. My father originally purchased this car in 1966 for $300 in Ft. Stockton, TX. As the story goes, he drove the car to his home in Carlsbad, NM and the engine consumed more than 12 quarts of oil during the 150 trip. After some much needed shade tree TLC and a new crankshaft, he drove the MGA for the next 20 years.
My father passed away in 2012, so I wanted to have his car restored to original condition in his honor. Hopefully, I can pass it along to my grandson in a few years to keep my fathers memory alive. Attached is a photo of my son Shea and Grandson Caleb after dropping off the car with Ron Redding.
Thanks, and I look forward to participating in some future events when the car is completed.
Mike, we feel certain that everyone in our Club applauds your effort. It is a worthy quest on multiple levels! Keep up the good work.
One of our Club’s LBC Sleuths, Bob Crow, discovered these 3 British Treasures while out and about in the Houston area. With no shortage of Blaze MGBs, another one rolled up to a Sunday morning bicyclists’ breakfast in the Heights. The owner, thoroughly attended by HMGCC members who also bike, will likely show up at our April meeting. (note the personalized plate.)
A spur of the moment MG run to a local breakfast spot. Any trip is more fun in an MG. :-)
Despite training rain showers across Texas last Saturday, the Club gathered to celebrate the new term of our President, Gordon Smith. As always, he and his Navigator Fran provided many wonderful and tasty consumables. A delightful mixed group of members just joined, from years gone by and for years into the future. Well done Fran and Gordon. Under your leadership, 2015 will be a fun and most entertaining year of positive challenges and MG events of all kinds.
Now comes our premiere annual social event: The President’s Social. This is our long-standing event where the Club President has the opportunity to serve us further, in his own home…as if he needed more to do. Joyfully, it is a good time and a unique chance to come together, with our MGs, to enjoy them and each other. Here’s the scoop:
