MG2006 Update

Every five years all the North American MG Registers get together for an all register meet. Every five years all the North American MG Registers get together for an all register meet. There will be cars from Prewar to the end of production representing all of North America. I talked to one of the organizers of the event on Sunday and he said there are over six hundred cars registered so far!

We are caravanning from Chicago to Gatlinburg. At last count we have eighteen cars registered and planning to join us for the cruise down. You save $15 by registering on line at the MG2006 website. Barney has placed a link on our Homepage to their site. You must register for the hotel through the MG2006 site to get the group rates. We are looking at the Great Smokey Mountain Scenic railway tour in North Carolina instead of the bus tour to the Biltmore estate. I have started an email group to keep in touch with everyone. Let me know if you want to be included. If you need more information, contact Diana or me.

I will be sending an initial email to everyone I currently have on our list. If you haven't received an email from me by the time you get your Driveline, please email me so I can add you to the list.

Our plan is to leave early on June 19th, and split the drive over two days. We will be traveling some interstate, but also a lot of scenic highways. We will arrive in Gatlinburg the evening of the 20th. We have not started planning the trip home yet, but since the Blue Ridge Parkway begins in the Smokies, a nice leisurely cruise north on the Parkway and Skyline Drive is a possibility. We will depart Gatlinburg early on the 25th.

This is going to be a huge event for MG enthusiasts. You will see cars from the thirties through the end of B production in 1980. I believe Reinout and Henneke's M will be among the earliest cars at the show. We all hope you can join us, it is a great time.

The Glenstone Hotel is booked! There are three hotels that have rooms left. They are The Holiday Inn Sunspree, the Park Vista, and the Microtel. You have to register on the web site to get information. You do not have to commit to going or pay anything. I agree the web site is a pain to navigate, but perseverance certainly pays off in this case.
