Dear fellow MG enthusiasts
The nostalgic theme for our Dec. 6 event was MG over the years… in sync with our MG 90 celebration. Many members dressed for the era of their MGs. Gordon Smith MC’d the evening in many important MG characters from Cecil Kimber on forward. After a “vintage” beverage or two, we were served our tasty choice of seafood, beef or chicken with all the trimmings. Table decorations featured octagonal silhouettes of MG models, topping cans of nut/candy treats. A Silent Auction provided many bits of MG memorabilia and useful automotive items. The 2014 Ralph Diebert Award went to Charter Member Frank Glass for his 1937 MG VA Tickford Drophead Coupe.
Winners of other awards included Gordon and Angie Bard, Driver’s Award; David Renner, Presidents Award: Gordon Bard, Broken Crankshaft Award.
Attendees walked away with lots of door prizes. The best prize, for everyone, was a really fun time with MG friends.

Even without the outdoors, the grass and the sun, the impromptu Saturday picnic event was a great fun time with MG friends. In driving to the Dawson neighborhood, Gordon was hoping for insurance points in the Drivers Award competition. Mike and Stephanie Woodward also drove their MGB while John Youens, David and Linda Renner could not find the MG keys. The lawn darts were ready but never used. Hot wassail, wine and assorted picnic yummies added to the glow.
Always remember, Drive Your MG.
On Saturday, November 15 there will be an MG Picnic in our neighborhood park. It is small but very private since we are a gated ‘hood. There is room enough for lawn darts, a little soccer or frisbee toss, etc. Bring your lunch and your MG. We are “Near Northwest” off West Little York between Bingle and Hollister just north of 290. 10 am to 2 pm. Arrive when you want.
Who will join us? I’ll provide more details to those interested.
Dwight and Candy
