MG Holiday Party 2014
December 6, 2014
On December 6th the MG faithful gathered at Wheat Stack in Lisle, IL to celebrate the Holiday Season in style. 72 members of the Vintage MG Car Club and the Chicagoland MG Club began the evening with the traditional cocktail hour and comradery.
Vic L'Heureux acted as this year's MC with CMGC President George Phariss and initiated the evening’s itinerary; both looking damper in their tuxedo’s. Again this year Reinout Vogt (Driving Events Coordinator) starting off with club driving awards. Reinout presented a number of driving awards for best driver-navigator, event placement and a number of other categories. He did this in a very efficient and timely manner.
The Chicagoland MG Club received a special surprise this month with a strange large shipping container holding the coveted Nuffield Trophy. The club was this year’s recipient of this prestigious award and many of the attending members were able to have their picture taken holding the trophy – with cotton gloves, of course!
With the awards done, a prime rib dinner was served family style. Victor then presided over the door prize announcements and the Christmas grab bag. The turnout for this event good, the dining facility was well decorated and the food was elegantly prepared and plentiful.
