Club Captain’s Report

Club Run News “Winners Again”

What a magic day we had for our May Clubman Run to Tanilba Bay for the “Tilligerry Motorama” event. We had seven cars set off at 8 o’clock to travel up to Tanilba Bay, so we could set up before 9 o’clock start. The morning was bright and sunny with hardly a breeze. Sally and I had the top down all the way in the MGF. It was a reasonably quick and easy trip, picking up Arthur in his MGTF along the Stockton straights. On arrival we assembled together in a tight group as space was limited due to the wet conditions and soft areas for parking. So that all the interested spectators could identify our club as the Hunter MG Car Club we attached our maroon club sashes across the windscreens of our cars. Due to the commitment and set up from our attending members on the day, our “MG Car Club Hunter Region” won the Best Club Display for Post Covid /20, /21, 2022.

We also had a few of our members pop in to have a chat during the day. Wendy and Gary attended with their little pup, to support our club, and to catch up and have a chat. It was sad that they could not attend in their MGF, as they have parted ways with this troublesome motor. Colin also finally arrived to say hello, not in his beloved green MGB or his blue MGF or even in Daisy the Minor, as she too would not leave Dungog.

The morning went very quickly, many people came by and were very interested in our cars and our club. Trish and I went for a walk around the park dropping off pamphlets to prospective entrants promoting our Euro Motorfest next month. ( More to say about this event later.)

As the day progressed the weather became cooler and slightly overcast. It was time for the judging and presentation for each category. Because of such a well attended and excellent presentation of cars, we all were interested in the final outcomes. Many hours and dollars have been lovingly put into these motors and the winners were rewarded for their hard work. Towards the end of the presentations our Club was announced as the best presented club on the day, in which I accepted the trophy on behalf of the club.

In conclusion, congratulations must go to all our many club winners from the National MG meeting. Well done to all for your ongoing commitment and enthusiasm for MGs.

Reminder for the June Clubman activity which will be our Euro Motorfest held on Sunday 19th June. Please come along to any or all the events- experience the MG family.


See you on the road,

Club Captain Jeff
