Abingdon 2000 Summer Party

August 17-20, 2000

Since 1987 the Chicagoland MG Club has been hosting the MG Abingdon Weekend for MG enthusiasts gathering in Abingdon, Illinois. Then 1999 saw the last occurrence of the University Motors Summer Party hosted by John Twist. John has been a member of the CMGC ever since its founding, and this club is very enthused with promoting the use and enjoyment of MGs. Put all of that together, mix well, and out comes the year 2000 Abingdon Summer Party! So now, on with the fun.
