Our Latest Newsletter

GLOUCESTERSHIRE MG OWNERS CLUB
July 2015 Newsletter No 82

 

My thanks to Laurence who carried on the Newsletter tradition for June whilst I was away in sunny Bedford.  He even added photographs which was a welcome addition.

The meeting was a little late in getting started as, due to a little confusion on our Treasurers part, we thought our guest speaker for the evening would be starting off the proceedings.  Brian welcomed Brian, who had decided to join us for the meeting and was perhaps a potential new Member.

Adrian asked Pete and Derrick how things were shaping up for the Teddy Bear’s Picnic on the 19th July but to date only 2 Members had expressed an interest.  Adrian said that he would email Members and ask them to contact Derrick direct, in the hope of swelling the numbers.  We would all meet at the Royal Oak Gretton where we would have coffee before starting the run at approximately 11am to Minchinhampton Common. 

In the absence of Tony and Jane Adrian said that The Gloucester Classic Car & Bike Show which is usually held later in the year had been brought forward to the 19th July should anyone be interested who were not attending the Teddy Bear’s Picnic.   This show is in aid of the Gloucestershire Multiple Sclerosis Information and Therapy Centre which Tony and Jane support.

Tim confirmed that he had checked all the pubs along the route of his run on the 28th July and had found one that served excellent food.  The start would be in the big car park on Gloucester Road Tewkesbury and the scenery along the way would be exquisite.

August would be a quiz by Gethin, so we will all need to be on top form for this.

There are 14 cars (28 Members) going to the Stroud Vintage Transport and Engine Club Show at South Cerney on the 2nd August meeting up at the Beeches Car Park Cirencester at 9am so that the cars can go in convoy.

Adrian reported that the entrants for the Cotswold Caper was a record of 189 with 200 cream teas being ordered.  It was an excellent run and we had smashed the amount that we had raised last year by quite a considerable amount.  Once he has all the costing, he will report on the correct figure.  He had had 3 pages of feedback from the entrants which were all good and he read out a few of the comments.   There were 89 entries from various Clubs.

The children from Allsorts had a wonderful time waving off the cars and it was a joy to see their happy faces. 

Mike Harding the Sales Director of Bath Ales Brewery had donated a trip for 20 people to visit the brewery and sample the beers.  It was left to the Committee to decide whether to put it into the Caper raffle or use it as a Club trip.  As the usual crowd of reprobates were not at the meeting Brian suggested that we wait until August before we took numbers.  The suggestion is that each Member pays £5.00 for the visit and the proceeds will go into the Caper fund.

The question was asked whether we should get Mike to organise a coach with the proviso that we would not pick up in Bournemouth. There is no time limit on the brewery trip.

Jane said that the polo shirts which we are ordering from a new supplier are rather large, but as she is now familiar with the sizing she can help Members decide on what size to order.

The Caption Contest was won by Keith Lewis, who we have not seen for a little while, as he had undergone surgery on his leg and was now in traction.  We wished him well with the hope that he will soon be able to come along to a meeting.  There will be a new Caption on the website for Members to make their comments and win a bottle of wine.

Brian asked if there were any questions before we broke for the raffle and a comfort break before the presentation by Ann Blagden.

Paul mentioned that the Cleeve Motor Club were holding a run on the 20th September if anyone was interested, it is however during the period when a small contingent of Members will be visiting foreign parts!

As Mo was on holiday in Wales Rita assisted Diana with the raffle.

After the 15 minute interval, when Members had charged their glasses, Brian introduced Ann who was elegantly dressed in a long black coat which was a tradition with Egyptian belly dancing.  When demonstrating the art of dancing you did not uncover yourself to reveal the costume until you actually performed.

Ann gave us a very informative and interesting presentation explaining the difference between Turkish and Egyptian belly dancing, how one is danced up and the other down ie one on tip toes and the other more flat footed.  She also got the Members to try some of the hand and shoulder movements,  still seated of course!   When she removed her coat her suit as it is known was in gold and very beautiful.  At this stage she delighted us with a dance using a long veil which had been made by a friend of hers, this was passed round for the female Members to admire.  Before taking questions Ann unfolded a rather large pair of gold wings with which she danced much to the admiration of all Members.

I think I can safely say that most, if not all Members, were enthralled with Ann’s presentation and demonstration as there were many questions.

The raffle was drawn whilst Ann was changing but she wasn’t able to make a quick escape as Members were interested in talking to her one to one.
