MG 2014 Drive into a Gilded Past
June 15 Ė 19, 2014
at French Lick Resort in Indiana.
MG 2014 will be June 15 Ė 19, 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 www.MG-2014.com for schedule of events and pictures. Southern Indiana is beautiful and has some great roads for driving MGs. Of course, attendance isnít limited to Midgets, 1100s, and Bs. This year the MGC will join us with the addition of the MGC register. You will also see a very good selection of Tís, Aís, 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.
It is also time to register with the event if you havenít already done so. Ann and I are attending the awards banquet and the car show. We have decided to pass on the bus tour to Nashville. Instead, we will drive our MG along with the Goebberts and Gonzalesí. The deadline for early registration is May 1st. Register soon so you donít miss the banquet. There are many opportunities for fun and education. There is on-line or mail-in registration available on the site.
Note: The host hotel is sold out. If you think you might attend, the organizers have information for other hotels in the area. They also have a wait list started. Check the event web site for information. Often rooms become available close to the event. We have nine cars from our club on the email list now. If you want to join our caravan, let us know.
