Also new this year were small cups for 2nd and 3rd place as well as 10 other recognitions.
The preliminary 2011 Driving Events Schedule is also out. If you don't find it in this issue of the Driveline, you can go www.chicagolandmgclub.com so that you can mark your calendars for your favorite events.

Bob Hanselman will have a Run to Brighton, WI for the Model A Ford Club and both of the MG Clubs.
