MG Summer Party Reunion
August 11-15 Grand Rapids, Michigan

Lots of fun and a big success here. The weekend started early with several of our members participating in the 12th annual Grand Lake Tour, starting early Thursday morning and running about 1000 miles in 28 hours. See separate report. Friday gave us tech sessions and vendors in the car park, and a cross town tour to see a private car collection, followed of course by some midnight tire kicking tech sessions and tall stories.

Saturday gave us the grand MG car show with over 500 cars in attendance. The featured model was overhead cam cars including the national meet for the MMM register, and a couple dozen MGA Twin Cam and MGA Deluxe cars. The CMGC on site cook out drew a small crowd in itself. Follow all that with the Saturday night award banquet and more midnight tire kicking. Sunday morning saw a good batch of MGs heading off to Grattan Race track for breakfast and a couple of laps around the track. Thank you very much to John Twist and the University Motors Ltd crew for hosting this wonderful celebration of all things MG. Everyone agrees a good time was had by all..
