Well it’s March. I had thought that by this time we could see some dry roads to play on but alas all we have is snow and more snow. I know, we had more last year, but still enough is enough. I’m ready to ‘hit the road’.

To reinforce this desire, the CMGC Driving Events calendar is hot off the press and ready to be transcribed onto your personal calendar. Rallies, Autocrosses, road tours, public service events, car shows – I’m sure these is something for every MG enthusiast. Take some time to review all the 36 upcoming events and make plans to attend.

Don’t forget – The Annual Swap Meet is coming in a couple of weeks. Come on by and check out the vendor stuff that will be available. Find that ‘treasure’ you have been looking for and if you don’t buy something anyway!

See you on the road…
