    Here is the latest Kimber Spirit Award update.  Have a question about which events you've attended.  Or maybe you think we have miscounted.  I have also attached a link to a spreadsheet where you can see the entire list of events so that you can firm that you are getting the appropriate credit.

    Are you a MG fanatic?  Do you love learning about all things MG? Are you and Anglophile?  Is history, or auto racing, or techology your thing?  Maybe you are none of those but just enjoy a good story, then the MG Car Club Podcast is for you.  I recently came across this treasure of all things MG while reading the latest edition of The MG Driver from NAMGBR.  I have only listened to a few of them but the few I did listened to had me captivated.  If you have a few minutes of downtime or drivetime take a listen you won't be disappointed.

    The Second Annual Battle of the Brits Charity Fundraiser Golf Tournament took place on the immaculate grounds of the Jersey Meadow Golf Course on June 8. Both sides were tuned up for this event; being the Second Annual, the tournament this year was the foundation of a tradition of links warfare between the LBC car clubs of Houston. The event was organized by the very capable Vernon Jones.

    Fifteen participants took place in this year’s tournament. The competition was highlighted by a rare hole-in-one on the 169 yard long 11th hole by the organizer, Vernon Jones. The Texas scramble format of the tournament ensured everyone was competitive and that all participants had a great time on the links.

    In the end, it was the team from Abingdon that prevailed for the second year in a row. The MG-B team came up with the lowest score. In addition to his hole-in-one, Vernon Jones also collected the trophy for closest to the pin. The tournament collected $200 to be donated to the HMGCC charity of choice, Isaiah 117 House of Montgomery & Walker Counties.

    Until next year, the coveted Claret Mug will remain with the Marque of Friendship, MG. And make sure you don’t miss this event the next time The Tradition Continues!

    Something tells me the Hardys may soon take the lead on this one unless someone else makes the trip to Calgary with them (there is still time to sign up).  GO SCOTT & TRISH!

    This is a bit late but still worth noting….  The club took first place in the Cars, Toys and Tractors class of the Katy Rodeo Parade. The question is did they think we were driving cars or toys, definitely not tractors.  Thank you to everyone who came out for the parade!

    Well, I wasn't but the singer-songwriters at the Songwriter Serenade certainly were.  The weather kept most people from making the trip but the Dawson's and Chalker's braved the weather.  And yes, Kim and I drove the 72B.  You'll have to ask Dwight what he drove.  

    Weather aside, we had a wonderful Saturday afternoon.  It began by meeting at Buc-ees in Katy to fill up on coffee and goodies and then a two hour drive through the countryside.  Yes, it rained most of the way.  In fact, it was raining so hard that the competition had to be delayed while they moved everything to another building that didn't have a metal roof.  The noise was deafening.   

     Once the show started the rain was quickly forgotten as the singers were incredibly talented and creative.  How could you not enjoy songs with titles such as "Hold My Beer While I Break My Own Heart" or "Love Songs In Reverse" and "poncho Villa Rides Again."   Although some of the songs were written to be funny others had a more serious message.  The winner of the competition, Caitlin Cannon sang of her brother who had spent most of his life in prison for a foolish crime as a youth.  While incarcerated he found the Lord and love.   The music ranged from slow ballads to Mexican melodies to country and the Blues.  There were fifteen performers and they hailed from across the country - Nashville, New York City, Denver, Montana, California, Minnesota and of course Houston and Austin.  They kept us entertained throughout the afternoon.  The organizers also had lunch available and a bar with beer and wine.  The setting can't be beat as it is in the Texas Country side.  

    By mid afternoon the rain dried up and we had an uneventful ride home.

    If the club does this event next year, you don't want to miss it.  Where else can you see some of the country's top talent for $15.00.
