Time to Update Club Membership Roster
The time has to update the club roster. We would very much like every one of you to go to the roster and verify your information: go to the club website, then click "Members and All." There you will see "Club Roster". You will need the password from the latest Driveline -- the user name is always "member" (case sensitive).
From Cowboy Bralich --
If you have any changes / corrections / additions to the information, please forward that on to the Membership Chair, Victor L’Heureux at firstname.lastname@example.org
Odometer Readings Wanted
Help me come up with some fun driving statistics. In so doing I will award someone with some kind of prize. Using the Spring Tune-up and then the Fall Tune-down as the begin-ning and ending of our 2010 driving season. I would like each of you to go out to your MG and write down the odometer read-ing and date. Then mail, E-mail, call, or hand me the number along your name, and MG model (T, A, B, midget…) and year. Mine is a 67-B with reading of 106077. Then again in November, I want you to do it all over again. With this data I will compile some fun facts: 1) The Average number of miles driven per day.
2) The average total miles driven within the driving season. 3) The mid-point (average) between the highest number of miles and the lowest number among all participants.
Like me, there is nothing normal about how I will pick the award winner. I am currently looking at finding the car/individual that comes closest to the number 2 above. Using that target, the person with the most miles (as well as the person with the least) will help determine the winner, but will not be the winner.
I currently have 20 member‘s data from the Spring Tune-up and a few from other dates. I would like to have eve-ryone who drives their MG to be part of the stats. Come on and take the few seconds and get me to the starting point.
