    Over the last couple of weeks several members have reached out to the club looking for answers to their technical questions while they are working on their LBC's during this time of social distancing. Some questions have been :

    How do I change out my speedometer cable?

    How do I repair my worn out brake pedal?

    To find the answer to these and many other questions tune in to our Zoom conference call during which our panel of experts will be available to answer them. An invitation will be emailed to all of our contacts.

    If you have any questions of your own email them to me ahead of time at mike.woodward@sbcglobalnet.

    We've recently planned trips to explore ships and trains and now it's time for planes!  We've got the handle on the automobile part driving our vintage cars!

    In keeping with our latest transportation themed events, Rich Colwell is hosting a trip to the 1940 Air Terminal Museum at 10:00 am on Saturday, April 25th.  We’ll meet in front of the museum where a reserved parking area is being provided for our members.

    Our guided visit to the Museum affords a front row vantage point to Hobby Airport's diverse airport operations. Between airline traffic, business aviation and frequent fixed wing and rotary wing general aviation traffic, the Museum has an air show every day. The entire ground floor of the historic Terminal is occupied by the Museum. For those of you who may have been to the museum in the past, the campus has expanded to include the recently restored 1928 Carter Field Airmail Hangar.

    An invitation is being extended to the Triumph and Jaguar Clubs as well and we are hoping to have a good mix of cars to display!

    Location: 8325 Travelair Street, Houston, Texas 77061, on the west side of Hobby Airport, just east of Telephone Road.

    Regular admission: $5 for adults. The museum also offers free admission for Museum Members, active duty members of the military, law enforcement and fire fighters.

    Lunch: After our tour is finished, an informal gathering is planned for pizza at Barry’s Pizza, a Houston classic for the more than 34 years.

    The Texas Songwriter Serenade


    The club will be traveling to Moravia, TX to attend the 14th Annual Texas Songwriter Serenade.  This is a great day full of driving our cars, enjoying extremely talented singer-songwriters and a bit of good conversation and laughter along the way.   

    The Serenade is a competition with some of the most talented songwriters from across the U.S. competing for cash prizes and more importantly, recognition as a top talent.  The semifinals will be from 11:00am to 2:00pm and the finals from 3:00 to 4:00pm.  It is an intimate setting with seating for only a couple hundred people and lots' of opportunity to meet the performers.

    This is a ticketed event, the organizers have not made ticket purchase available yet, but we will let you know when they do or you can keep an eye on their website by clicking HERE.

    They will have food and beverages available for purchase, but this is also an excellent opportunity to bring a picnic lunch along as the venue has picnic tables available undercover and beautiful grounds. To learn more about the event read Bob & Kim Chalker's post in The ROARS from their visit last year.

    For those of you who want to make a weekend out of it the Bugle Boy Concert Hall in La Grange, TX will be hosting a special event with the winners and judges performing at 8:00pm.  If you are interested in seeing this show there are a couple hotels in the local area.

    We will meet the Buc-ees in Katy at 8:00am and will depart at 8:30am.  This will allow time to fuel up on breakfast tacos, coffee and Beaver Nuggets.  We will follow country roads arriving in Moravia around 10:30am, in time for the start of the music at 11:00am.    We expect to depart for home around 5:00pm following the awards ceremony.  There is also the possibility for stopping for dinner on the way home.

    So grab your best girl or guy and join us for a day of Texas sized entertainment.

    The Houston Club's traditional attendance at this great gathering of fellow MG enthusiasts from around the state for the statewide MG car show, known as the G.O.F. (Gathering Of The Faithful) created great memories and opportunities to share our MG experiences with our fellow Texans.
