Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline April 2014

  Monthly Meeting Minutes
February 17th, 2014

David Novak

35 Members in attendance, wearing not as much green as Iíd expect for St. Patrickís day.

At 8:00PM, Vice-President Victor LíHeureux banged the gavel to bring the rowdy bunch to order. No new members were in attendance, although Jeff and Deb Morris joined us after long absence.

Car Projects:
Barney is helping Ron Scoma with his MGA thatís been off the road for a number of years, although itís looking promising to have it back on the road soon. This morning on my way to work, I ran over something that I thought was a piece of ice/snow, but turned out to be a piece of asphalt! Thatís why I drove a rental to the meeting.

Dave Bralich then gave an interesting discussion of the results of his oil-filter tear-down. Napa filters turned out to be Daveís favorite for their construction, Fram was his least favorite, and K&N were good but too expensive.

Victor then gave out the remaining driving awards for 2013.

Darryl Mayo won $18 in the 50/50 raffle! Dino also donated a

Upcoming Events
March 30óSwap Meet! Coming soon! Jim Evans noted that vendor signup has picked up! 94 out of about 102 slots have been sold! So it looks like itís going to be a great year for the Swap Meet on itís new day! And so far using instead of the local newspaper seems to be working very well, as well!
