    We are pleased to share the award winners from this year's Houston All British Car Day.  We had an outstanding field of cars with over 70 entries.  I am sure that they crowd found the voting to be difficult with so many great cars.  

    Arnel Brown won Best of show with his 1953 MG TD

    We also gave away two prizes in a random drawing.  Kenny Daves won a $100 gift certificate from Moss Motors and Richard Langer won a $25 certificate from Rock Auto.  We thank both companies for the support of our event.

    CONGRATULATIONS to all of our winners. (click here to be taken to the award winners.

    Once again this year a significant portion of the proceeds went to support the Russ Seto Scholarship.

    The Houston All British Car Day was a true success despite the threats of tropical storm Imelda, the skies cleared and we had a beautiful day with over 70 British classics, from across the decades, on the show grounds at the Wild Stallion Vineyards.  

    Here are scenes from the day....

    Several of you have asked if the Houston All British Car Day will be happening on Saturday.  AccuWeather is calling for the storms to be out of the area, partly cloudy skies and no rain for Saturday morning and early afternoon.  The organizers will be visiting the site tomorrow to confirm all is well but we are planning for the show to go on as planned.  If anything changes we will post it here.

    We have over 75 cars registered, even if you are not showing your LBC come on out and see these beautiful vehicles.

    Safety fast!

    We still need volunteers for the GoF.  If you would like to help out you can either sign up at the September monthly meeting or send an email to houstonmgcarclub@gmail.com with the activity for which you want to volunteer and your phone number.  

    If you would like to help out in more than one are please feel free to do so, but be consonant that your commitments don’t overlap from a timing standpoint.

    Registration – 5 Volunteers

    Kim Chalker has agreed to lead the registration effort with the assistance of Dwight & Candi Dawson.  We have a good team, but we could always use more help during the event.  Registration will be open Thursday, 4 to 6pm; Friday 8 to 11am and 2 to 4pm; and Saturday, 7 to 8:30am.  If you can help during one or all of these times, please volunteer.

    Auction Items – 2 Volunteers

    The GoF always gets a wealth of items donated for the auction held during the banquet.  Those items are on display at the registration site and then are moved to the banquet hall on Saturday afternoon.  We need two volunteers to help move these items, total trip is approximately 3 miles.  The commitment for this is 1 to 2 hours late Saturday afternoon.

    Friday Morning Drive – 3 Volunteers

    We need a couple volunteer to assist Bob Chalker with the Saturday morning drive.  The volunteers will be responsible for meeting the other participants in the parking lot and leading them out of Katy and on the drive following a pre-planned route.  Since the route is already planned, this is a fun way to volunteer and the commitment is only for Friday morning.

    Hemi Hideout drive – 3 Volunteers

    We need a couple volunteers to assist Ron Redding with the Saturday afternoon drive..  The volunteers will be responsible for meeting the other participants in the parking lot and leading them out of Katy and on the drive following a pre-planned route.  Since the route is already planned, this is a fun way to volunteer and the commitment is only for Friday afternoon.

    Saturday Morning Car Line up – 3 Volunteers

    We need someone to lead and a couple of assistants for the lining up of the cars in the Holiday Inn parking lot for the drive to the car show.  Based on the instructions of Barry Glass, the car show planner, you will line the cars up, by model, in the order that they are to enter the car show area downtown Katy.  Once lined up, you will lead them, following a map which will be provided, to the location for photos and then on to the car show.  There will be volunteers in the photo area and in the car show area to assist with direction.  The commitment is for an hour or so on Saturday morning.

    Car Show Staging – 4 Volunteers

    We need three to four people to assist with the staging of the cars on the street downtown Katy for the car show.  Barry Glass, from the TMGR will lead this activity but he needs a few people to help him.  The volunteers will need to be available from approximately 7 to 10am on Saturday morning.

    Car Photos – 2 Volunteers

    We will be taking photos of the participants in their cars in front of the MKT Caboose.  Gary Sandusky, from the TMGR, will be taking the photos, as he does for most GoF’s and his wife will be assisting him, but he could use one or two more volunteers to assure everything run smoothly.  You will need to be available Saturday morning from approximately 8:30 to 9:45am.

    Saturday Lunch – 3 Volunteers

    Fran Carpenter is the lead for the lunch and is making all the arrangements, but she needs two or three volunteers to help the day of the show to set up, distribute and clean up.

    Car Show Clean Up – 4 Volunteers

    In the past we have had issues with leaving litter behind at the show.  We have made a commitment to the City of Katy to assure we leave the area of the car show as good, if not cleaner, than we found it.  We need someone to lead this effort and two or three people to help.  We will be purchasing garbage cans and liners to place in the area of the show.  We need volunteers to make sure those cans are emptied when they are full and then to police the area during the event.  This commitment is for Saturday from 10:00am until the show ends Saturday afternoon. 

    Banquet Set Up and Clean Up – 5 or More Volunteers

    Ron Redding is coordinating the banquet and he needs at least four people the day of the banquet to assist in setting up, decorating and cleaning up afterwards.

    Please volunteer by signing up during the monthly meeting or sending an email to HoustonMGCarClub@gmail.com

    THANK YOU!
