Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline April 2016
Upcoming Events

Spring Tour
May 20-22, 2016
Valparaiso, Indiana

We will be headquartered in Valpo at the Country Inn and Suites. Saturday morning we will take off for a drive in the country. We are going to The World of Motorcycles Museum which is located next to Kersting’s Cycle Center. It’s “the little shop in the middle of nowhere, where wonderful folks come from everywhere.” There are over 160 motorcycles and a growing number of cars, including a TC.
Feel like going for another drive? We could go north, to explore the Indiana Dunes area.
Or you could go antiquing in town.
Also check out Valparaiso University’s world famous Chapel.
I’ve been told there are several adult beverage establishments.
Sunday morning there is a car show and swap meet.

If you take US 30 (just east of I-65) you could stock-up on fresh gummy bears and more at Albanese Candy. There is a self guided video tour of the factory.

A block of rooms has been reserved — $100 plus tax. The release date is April 20th. Make your own reservations at: 219-476-0000. Mention the Vintage MG Car Club. Country Inn and Suites is located at 2020 LaPorte Ave, Valparaiso IN 46383.

Don’t forget your provisions for the afternoon/evening gatherings. Let me know that you will be joining us. Email is best. I’ll keep you up to date on developments. There may be a caravan on Friday.

Maintaining the Breed

June 13-17, 2016

It looks like there will be two groups going to Louisville from Chicago. Ann and I will join the Goebberts and the Gonzales’ for a drive down on Sunday the 12th. We will arrive a day early for an early jump on the sightseeing. We want to be there in plenty of time for the Churchill Downs reception on Monday. Obviously anyone who wants to join us is welcome. There will be another group leaving on Monday.

Our route will take us on back roads but we should still arrive early in the afternoon. We will drive as many as we can.

There are many events planned for the convention. These events are filling fast. The organizers have added a second event at Churchill Downs for Wednesday. Check the site at . Registration is up and running. Hotels must be booked through the web site if you plan on staying at one of the event hotels and taking advantage of their group rates.

This is an all register MG meeting so there should be well over fifteen hundred cars on the show field. There are over 500 cars registered already. We hope you can join us!

See you on the road!
