I’m pleased to report that we have been chosen to be the Chicago area affiliate for NAMGAR (North American MGA Register) as reported elsewhere in this newsletter. NAMGAR fulfills the same role for MGA owners at a nationwide level as do the AMGBA and NAMGBR for MGB and Midget owners. A previous discussion with NAMGAR fell through several years ago but, as is often the case in life, the timing was now right for both parties, and we will both be benefiting from the arrangement for years to come.
Please also note in this issue that our 2007 Driving Program has been put together by Seth Jones and Reinout Vogt, with help from several interested members. This program was carefully scheduled to avoid conflicts and communications problems, and the participation numbers at yearend will hopefully prove the approach worthwhile. New this year is the idea of participating in autocrosses conducted by the Miata Club. Those involved with developing our driving program found that we were unable to locate reasonably priced sites for our own autocrosses and therefore chose this path. Also new this year is the inclusion of several “recommended” car shows; members who display their cars at these shows will receive “MG Bucks” for helping to promote awareness of our group to the car hobby enthusiasts of this area. Although there are many car oriented events coming up this summer, only the events endorsed by the club will qualify for club driving program points and “MG Bucks”. These events will be identified in the Driveline each month but we will also tell you about other activities that may be of interest to you.

Safety Fast!   Jim Evans
