GLOUCESTERSHIRE MG OWNERS CLUB

September 2019 Newsletter No 127

Members were welcomed to the September meeting by Rob, who was pleased to see so many of us gathered. Janice and John, who were new faces to the Club, but not to the Caper, were asked by Rob what car they had and to our surprise they had three MGs, one of which was an MGA. They had supported the Cotswold Caper for some years and although they were Gloucestershire people had not been able to join the Club due to various other commitments on a Thursday evening. Rob said that they were particularly welcome as we were going to present the cheque from this years Caper to our 2019 Charity, Focus.

As is usual when we have a speaker etc the business side of the meeting takes second place and Rob was delighted to hand over the very large cheque (size wise, specially brought out for the occasion by Laurence) to Richard Hastilow-Smith who received it on behalf of Focus. Richard had not prepared a speech for the occasion but thanked the Members of our Club 'off the cuff' for an amazing, well run event, which he enjoyed being part of. The money raised, 5,200.00, was for the bladder scanner which he said was on order and we will receive an invitation to see the scanner once it was in place at the Oncology Unit in Cheltenham Hospital. Photographs were taken of the presentation with the 'large cheque' after which Richard was given the official one.

With the help of our 'caller' Dave, Carol and Elspeth carried out the raffle.

It was decided that as we were only about half an hour into the meeting, the Committee would run through the business bits quickly and then Members could mingle.

Rob thanked all those who had contributed to the Caper and for purchasing the 'gear stick warmers' which had been designed and knitted by Myn.

As there had only been one nomination for the 2020 Caper Charity, by default it would be Severn Freewheelers.

Thanks were given to Rob and Myn for organising the August evening run, which finished at a new location for the Club, the New Dawn Inn, Tirley. Also to Andy for the September run finishing once again at the Whitminster Hotel, where we always have a great meal.

Rob handed over to Laurence for the upcoming events which were the Severn Vale Rotary Club 77 mile charity run on the 15th September, to which five of our Members were attending. Then the Castle Combe Autumn Classic Historic Racing Festival on the 5th October, for which he had reserved spaces should any of our Members wish to attend. Members were advised to book on the web site and choose our Club as the affiliated Club.

Keith and Wendy are hosting the annual Gloucestershire MG Owners Club Social Sunday lunch on the 29th September with Members paying a nominal 5.00 per head with the Club paying the balance. There will be a 39-mile run starting from the Gala Club at 11am finishing at Keith and Wendy's home. Keith had asked that Members provide raffle prizes with the proceeds going towards a Charity. On the 24th October we will be holding our return skittles match against the Wessex MGOC at the Beacon Hotel, Haresfield, kick off time will be 7.30pm.

Tim and Louise have booked the Hunters for the first Sunday lunch of the season on the 27th October. Tim informed us that we would be put in a separate room!!!

Richard offered to arrange a quiz for our November meeting

Dave C said that the menu for our Christmas Bash on the 14th December would be available at the October meeting when he would be taking numbers.

Dave G said that he would organise the March Sunday lunch which would be on the 15th.

A visit to the SS Great Britain has been arranged for the 21st June 2020, Fathers Day next year, where we will have priority parking and entrance to the museum. Laurence will be taking numbers at a later date, although several members have already signed up.

Trev reported on the 2020 Caper saying that the wheels were slowly turning with the people involved and that three Members had come forward to help, which would solve the immediate problems.

Laurence asked once again for Members to think about and suggest ideas for next year's programme.

The winner of the Caption Contest was Jane with 'The car park attendant at the SS Great Britain is certainly not ducking his duties'.

The meeting closed with the singing of 'happy birthday' to Les, whose birthday it was that day.

E & OE
