There were no Mini's present but the July meeting was a smashing success with Italian flare. We gathered at the Grotto, an Italian Bistro in the Woodlands, with more than 35 people in attendance. We even had a Ferrari Mondial in the parking lot owned by new member Ed Hesling and his wife Judi.
Sneed Adams provided an update on Keels & Wheels and John Bowyer shared with us the happenings and member benefits of the Rolls Royce Owners Club.
John highlighted how valuable the technical bulletins and knowledge sharing is to keeping his cars running well. If you are not a member of the MG National organizations we highly encourage you to join. They also have a wealth of information about our cars with lots and lots of great advice. You can get more information on joining on our resource page.
We were also joined by new members Scott and Trish Hardy who just moved from Calgary. They have a 1972 Teal Blue MGB that is back in Canada waiting for them to bring it to Houston. I suspect the weather will be a bit of a shock to its system.
With the addition of the Helsing's and the Hardy's our membership now stands at 120 families.
Other reports included an update on the Katy GoF, financial report and news on other club events and happenings. We were pleased to learn that Ron was able to secure the City of Katy's support for the GoF as an official event of the Katy Convention and Tourism Bureau.
We even had a few club members brave the heat and join us in their cars.
