MG 2014 Drive into a Gilded Past
June 15 Ė 19, 2014
at French Lick Resort in Indiana.

Ann and I are attending along with several other cars from CMGC. We will drive down on Sunday the 15th. Our exact route hasnít been chosen yet, but this is the closest convention to Chicago in many years. It will be an easy day drive. Please check out the website at for a schedule of events and pictures. Southern Indiana is beautiful and has some great roads for driving MGs. Of course, attendance isnít limited to Midgets, 1100ís, and Bís.

This year the MGC will join us with the addition of the MGC register. You will also see a very good selection of MGTs, MGAs, and even a few post-Abingdon MGs. This is a great opportunity to show off your MG and meet some really nice and knowledgeable people.

As of December 20th, there are only about 30 rooms left out of 300. They expect all the rooms to be booked by early February. They are working with other nearby hotels for more accommodations. If you think you might attend, book your room soon. The hotelís phone number and block information is available at the event web site. If you want to join our caravan, let us know.

See you on the road!

Join the "Cruise to the Capital" (C2C), a NAMGAR Regional event, in association with GT-39 in Ottawa, Canada. The drive starts in Victoria, British Columbia on July 4th, 2014 and travels thru BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Southwest Ontario to the capital of Canada Ė Ottawa - arriving on July 14th, 2014 - just in time for the GT (note that the dates and route are still subject to confirmation).

The Canadian Classic MG Club would like to invite Chicagoland MG Club members to join us on route. We will be passing through northern Michigan on July 11th, driving from Duluth, MN to Ishpeming, MI. You can join the drive at any point along the route.

Total mileage is estimated at 2,953 miles over 10 days. Drive at your own pace and meet at pre-determined overnight stops. The organizers will be researching costs for trucking your vehicle from the east coast to Victoria or Vancouver. If you're interested in either attending the event or trucking your vehicle, please contact the organizers and your name will be added to an email list.

Additional information and updates for C2C and GT-39 will be posted on the NAMGAR website as they become available - please check the website regularly for the latest information.
