Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline September 2014
Upcoming Events
Wine, Cheese, & Beer Tour 2014
Festival Finale September 19-21, 2014

Join us for a fun weekend on our tenth annual WCB Tour! The fun begins Friday evening (September 19) in Rockford for dinner at our favorite Japanese restaurant; if you have dined with us before you know the food is excellent as is the preparation. The evening will end with a parking lot party at the hotel.

On Saturday (September 20), we depart from the hotel parking lot for a cruise through southeastern Wisconsin on some very scenic and even historic roads. We end the day in Port Washington, WI on Saturday night for dinner by the lake followed by another parking lot party. Sunday we take a short cruise to Cedarburg for their annual wine and harvest festival. We can guarantee good food, good driving, good shopping, and most of all, good company. We will be traveling on some very scenic Wisconsin Roads and even some with a history.

RESERVATIONS: We are staying at the Quality Suites (apparently no longer affiliated) on Walton Street in Rockford Friday night. The room rate is $85.00 plus tax. If you want to join us Friday, please reserve your rooms from the Chicagoland MG Club block. The number at the hotel is 815 227-1300. Even though the hotel name has changed, our reservations and rate is still good. Please let us know if you plan to join us for Friday dinner so we can make reservations.

The hotel for Saturday is the Holiday Inn – Port Washington. The rate is $94.00 for two queen non lake view room or $119.00 for a lake view room. The phone number is 262-284-9461. The block is under the Chicagoland MG Club.

This tour is a finale for another reason. This is the tenth Wine, Cheese, and Beer Tour Ann and I have done. We have decided to retire and give other members a shot at organizing a great weekend for the great members of the Chicagoland MG Club. I have no idea where the last 10 years have gone, but we have really enjoyed them. We are looking forward to joining our MG friends on whatever tours the future brings.

We look forward to seeing you there in September and in the future!

Joseph Lucas Memorial Night Rally
October 11, 2014

Having checked the position of the stars, phases of the moon and killed a chicken we have determined the date and time for the Joseph Lucas Memorial Night Rally.

On October 11, 2014 at 4:00 PM in St Charles Illinois the members of VMGCCC and CMGC will rally.

The rally will pause at 6:15 PM (sunset) face east towards Abingdon and pay homage to Joseph Lucas and, as our P.O. in the past, will walk three times clockwise around our Little British Cars and chant: “Oh mighty Prince of Darkness, protect your unworthy servants before continuing on into the darkness”.

More details to follow – hope to see you there!

Safety First & Fast
