President’s Report

October 2023

The big talking point this month is the very successful 100-year celebration of MG. 

The celebration started with ideas from Anne Pettigrew as to what when and how we should remember 100 yrs. of MG. Anne soon had Andrew on board to assist with venue and times, Howard came up with a morning drive, then Anne and Andrew went about decorating the room at "The Old Maitland Inn". 

I feel sure that everyone would have been very happy with their MG coaster memento. 

The venue could have not been any better, as one of our members said, he thought he had gone to the wrong place and had crashed a wedding. 

Steve Jones spoke about our club, from the first days through to 2023, the different meeting places, the events that we have been involved in and the restoration of the J Van. 

Andrew had a little time at home with some bug that he caught on the Tuning Run Weekend away, maybe a little too much top-down driving*, but that time was spent producing the display boards for our members to view. 

On the day, we had 8 foundation members present to form a guard around the cutting of the cake, and that cake was something special.

We are very fortunate to have so many members keen to assist, and I shall not try to mention them all because I know that I will leave someone out, I would just like to say to all that helped in any way to make the day the success that it was ,your help was most appreciated and overall it was a great team effort. 

Now, back to the real world, let's all get ready for our Concours.

Octagonally Yours,

Denny Bowden, President
