Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline April 2016
Upcoming Events

Car Care Safety Clinic for Seniors
May 14, 2016

A sure sign of Spring is the Naperville and Lisle Townships TRIAD Free Car Clinic for Seniors, Saturday May 14, 2016 from 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 noon at the Village of Lisle Public Works Facility, 4905 Yackley Ave., Lisle, IL 60532.

The safety clinic which provides a free 40-point safety inspection of vehicles driven by senior citizens (ages 50 and older). The event grows each year as the Triad organization’s outreach to seniors continues to expand.

Vintage and antique cars will again be on display; most are vehicles owned by our volunteer “car guys” who help perform the inspections. Chicagoland MG Club (CMGC) member Jim Vondran coordinates the Triad car safety clinics and really appreciates the enthusiastic participation of volunteers from the CMGC, the Chicago area Model T Club, and the Chicagoland Miata Club each year.

Please contact Jim directly at (630) 234-7102 to affirm your participation, either as an inspection team crew-member and/or displaying your vintage car, or just stopping by for a portion of the time so that our seniors can see your car while their vehicles are being inspected.

The Naperville and Lisle Townships TRIAD, an organization dedicated to the safety and well being of senior citizens, is a partnership of local governments, law enforcement and fire departments, senior citizens, community groups, and private entities serving the growing senior population. The Triad organization presents several safety and social programs for seniors each year. Visit for more information.

2016 Spring Chicken Run
May 15, 2016 - 10:30 AM

Jana and I are in the early stages of planning the Spring Chicken Rally/Tour for this year and hope that you can attend. Please save the date of Sunday, May 15 for this event.

We will begin the driver's meeting at 10:30 in the Deer Park Town Center shopping mall in Deer Park, on the north west corner of Route 12, Rand Road and Deer Park Blvd. by the Starbucks parking area. Same place as last year. We will have a different drive that ends at a location to be determined. The drive will take approximately an hour and one-half, where we will have a lunch.

We will update the plans as they are finalized and post the information in next month’s Driveline, as well as on our club’s web site and our club’s Facebook page. We just hope that we are blessed with the good weather that we had the last several years.
