Registration is now open for NAMGBR’s MG 2023, “MGs in the Foothills”, to take place in Calgary, Alberta, Canada July 17-20, 2023. The event will be held just after the world-famous Calgary Stampede closes on Sunday, July 16. The link for registration is https://mg2023.regfox.com/calgary.
Scott and Trish Hardy, current members of the Houston MG Car Club, lived in Calgary for over 25 years before moving to Texas. In fact, we are in the blue MG pictured in the promotional photograph for the event!
Scott and Trish would like to invite any HMGCC members who want to visit one of the most beautiful areas of North America to join them on the journey. The goal is to drive mostly MG friendly roads and visit many attractions on the way there and back.
The general outline of our plan is to leave from a meeting place in Texas sometime between July 5 - 7 and arrive in Calgary Saturday, July 15. The route north will take us through New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. These dates allow time for a scenic drive, stops at many attractions en route, and enable us to catch the final day of Stampede on Sunday, July 16. We will also offer a drive through the foothills of the Canadian Rockies on Monday before registration opens.
We would depart on Friday, July 21 to return to Texas via an entirely different route going through Utah and Arizona, again stopping to see attractions on the way. Return to Texas would be the weekend of July 29 - 30. Trish and I will not lead this section of the trip, though we will organize it, because we will be staying in Calgary for our son's wedding early in August.
We will be publicizing this drive with all the MG clubs in Texas to try and generate interest in the trip. There are practical limits to the number of participants, but we will face that issue if it arises. And we will welcome input on timing, routing and attractions from anyone who is seriously interested.At this point we are in the early planning stages of the trip, but we would like to get a rough idea how many
crazy dedicated MG people would consider joining us. Please contact Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions or to express interest. Further information will be sent out as our plans take shape.
