Monthly Column of Driving Events
Happy New Year! I am sure that you heard that a lot of times already. But this one is a little bit different. Of course I wish you and your family all the best for 2014. However, I would like to wish you a very fine Driving Season, even though that is not going to start for a few more months. I hope your 2014 Driving Season will include a lot of great weather, many Driving Events of the MG Clubs of Chicago, no technical MG break downs, and not getting lost.
Looking back, the first year of combined calendar for the VMGCC and the CMGC appears to have worked out pretty good with more events and more MGs. And it finished with the awards presentation with the two clubs combined, at the (already) combined Holiday Party. Looking forward, let's do it again in 2014. And you know what? Doing it again is in our own hands. We need to have members organizing events and we need members to drive their MGs in events. More of each of these is the goal; a few new events (a Lucas Memorial Night Tour or Rally) and even more MGs at the tours and rallies (if many MGs is good, even more MGs is better, right?).
And we need members to join us to some out-of-town conventions, the NAMGBR annual meeting in French Lick, IN in particular. That means that all of us have some work to do. We have to start planning the calendar and we have to make sure our MGs are ready. I know it is cold in the garage, but if you want to be ready for the upcoming season, order the parts now and get things in order. I promise to have the events scheduled and calendar done in March and if you have your MGs ready to go, we'll be all set for a great 2014 Driving Season.
As always, please give me a call at 847 342 9804 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with suggestions, ideas, comments, and concerns.
