Our Latest Newsletter

GLOUCESTERSHIRE MG OWNERS CLUB

October 2019 Newsletter No 128

Rob welcomed Members to the October meeting, held on a lovely evening. Although initially there were no new Members present, one gentleman crept in - Clive Forster who owns a 1974 MGB GT and he was given a warm welcome by Rob. He is local to the Gala Club and was given a Membership form in case he decided to join.

We had received a 'thank you' letter from Richard at Focus, which Laurence had emailed out to everyone, thanking us for the generous donation from the Cotswold Caper. Rob admitted that he had not seen the letter, but Laurence fortunately had a copy with him.

A big 'thank you' was given to Keith and Wendy for organising and hosting yet another successful social day, with great food, especially the desserts. The weather stayed dry for the excellent thirty-mile run from the Gala Club to their home.

Laurence reported that as we were nearing the end of the year there was not a lot to report on. We had our skittles match to look forward to on the 24th October where we may have to 'prune' our team down as twenty-four Members had signed up for the evening and we were still waiting to hear from our opponents the Wessex MGOC. Tim and Lou's Sunday lunch would be on the 27th October at the Hunters Inn, near Tewkesbury, meeting 12pm for 12.30pm sit down. Penny and Chris were organising the November lunch at the Daneway near Sapperton, and would take menu choices at the November meeting. A list was passed round so that they had a rough idea of how many would be attending.

Forty-two Members had booked for the Christmas Party Night at the Lilley Brook Golf Club, but there was still room for any late comers. Dave said that cheese and biscuits were an option instead of the pudding.

Reporting on the 2020 Caper, Trev said that our route man was enjoying himself in Tenerife and that four more Members had joined the Committee for 2020 which would create new blood and interest. The route was beginning to take shape. Someone suggested that it would be one hundred miles of the M5, fifty miles from the start and fifty miles back!

Richard suggested that it might be of interest to know what cars are owned by Club Members which Laurence has taken on board and would action in due course.

After a short break and the raffle, Laurence said that Chris, our Website man, would give us a short presentation of the proposed new website for our approval.

Chris had taken over from Adrian at the last AGM and although the website was very informative and useful it had been running for quite a number of years and in that time, as with anything else, things had changed. When Chris volunteered to help with the website, he realised that the diary page was the focus of the Club. We were shown slides of a simplified version of the diary page which was very much like an everyday calendar used at home. If you highlighted the second Thursday of the month this would give you all the information about the MG Meeting. The diary page could be changed from week or month to view or even an agenda type of list view. The 'Newsletter' could also be viewed on the diary page and we would still have the two areas, general public and members only. Unfortunately, Chris could not show us fully his thoughts as there was a bad connection between his laptop and the Gala Club projector, so his presentation was cut short. He did however say that we would go 'live' in the New Year and although the content would be no different it would be easier to access.

Rob thanked Chris for all the work he was doing in getting the website up-to-date and wished the skittlers good luck for their match against the Wessex MGOC on Thursday 24th October.
