Our Latest Newsletter

GLOUCESTERSHIRE MG OWNERS CLUB

January 2020 Newsletter No 130

Our November meeting, which was the last one of 2019 was very wet, with lots of flooding and our first meeting of the New Year was no different. Rob wished all Members a Happy New Year thanking them for braving the weather and saying that Laurence and Jane were once again on the high seas (not literally we hoped!!) so Keith was acting as Secretary.

Chris and Penny were thanked by Rob for organising the excellent November Sunday lunch at the Daneway where there was a good turnout of Members. Our Christmas meal at the Lilleybrook Golf Club was enjoyed by everyone and Dave and Liz had provisionally booked the venue for the 12th December 2020, just in case we wished to return there once again. We were all in agreement that we should, so Dave and Liz will firm up this date. Thanks were given to Dave and Liz for taking this on again.

At our last Committee Meeting we had a discussion on the slogan on our website Home Page (It's the cars that bring us together- It's the friendship that keeps us together) which has been in use for a good number of years and Members were asked if they could come up with a new one. Something catchy, not rude. Rob asked if we could have ideas at the February meeting.

We also discussed raising Membership Fees as other MG Clubs were charging anything from 15.00 - 25.00 and Members were asked for their thoughts. Richard didn't think that we should reduce the fees!!!! Various comments were made with one Member asking what benefit Members would receive by the increase. At the AGM in March it would be formally decided whether or not to increase the fees.

The winner of the Caption Contest showing our Chairman holding a shotgun was Tim (Parrott) with 'now, who did I see not driving an MG'.

The 2020 diary was almost full, with only two evening runs requiring organisers.

Rob and Myn had organised the first Sunday lunch of the new year on the 26th January at The Rising Sun, Cleeve Hill and on the 23rd February we will be going to the Tudor Arms at Slimbridge organised by Keith and Wendy. For this one we need to arrive at 11.30am for a midday sit down as the pub tends to get very busy.

March will be quite a busy month, as we will be having a talk by Angela Williams about the women who worked at the Munitions Factory, Rotherwas in Hereford and she had asked in advance if our Members knew of anyone who worked there between the two wars. She asked for photographs to be brought to the meeting when she would have forms to add names/details to the 'roll of honour'. There is also Sunday lunch on the 15th, organisers Dave and Chris and on the 26th we will be having a practice skittles match at the Beacon, Haresfield in preparation for our return match with the Wessex MG Club later in the year. Names and food orders would be taken at the February meeting.

Keith had updated the Club Tools List on the web site and should anyone wish to borrow them they should contact him. Details of course are on the site.

Bridgend MGOC have their 20th Anniversary Cwm to Coast run on the 17th May, with Exeter's 31st Anniversary Moor 2 Sea on the 31st May. Details of these events are on their relevant web site.

Trev reported that the Caper route had been established and we had already received sixteen entries with the first one arriving on the 3rd January. Our Charity, Severn Freewheelers had also confirmed that they were very happy to get involved on the day. Teresa, as last year, would be collecting any raffle prizes Members wished to donate.

Sadly Lionel's wife Betty had passed away towards the end of 2019 and our thoughts are with him.

After the comfort and raffle break, we resumed for a quiz set by Rob and Myn. We had a picture round and ten questions on the decade, one question from each year. The winners with twenty out of twenty-five were Derrick, Pete, Keith and Clive and they were presented with a bottle of wine to share, one glass each!!

Thanks to Rob and Myn for the quiz which was a little different.

E & OE

Sue
