Meeting Report
The April meeting featured a technical presentation from Dave Bralich, who dissected a couple of oil filters (with his special tool). This demonstration highlighted the difference between various oil filter brands as well as educating members about what is circulating around in their engine. At the same time, a slide presentation about the Amelia Island Concours was run for members to view some 100+ pictures taken there last month.

Car Shows
We will be awarding MG Bucks to club members who attend club endorsed car shows this summer. In order to qualify, you must register your car for the show – simply attending as a spectator doesn’t count. This is an “honor system” activity, so you will need to report your attendance to one of the club officers in order to secure credit. This month, qualified shows will be the AACA show on May 4 at the Lake County Fairgrounds (Grays Lake, IL) and the AACA show on May 25 at the Sandwich Fairgrounds (Sandwich IL). See the club website for info on these shows. Remember, by showing our MG’s at car shows such as these we are educating the public about MG’s and may see future owners and members come forth from this type of effort.

May Meeting
The May meeting will feature a presentation from member Tom Raddatz, who owns the only true MGF currently in the US. Tom will describe the trials and challenges he encountered when bringing this car to Chicago and resuscitating it from a poor condition. We will also have a brief presentation from Dan Herman, organizer of the “Secrets of Jo Daviess County” weekend this summer. Dan will review his planned schedule and stopping points on this tour, which has become very popular since its inception a few years ago.
