Well it’s October. It may have been a wet one for some of the past events but it sure didn’t dampen the spirits of the MG drivers of this club. Many events saw record participation and new faces took part in events. I for one went to my 1st Meadowdale Raceway Car Show. It rained early but cleared up to be a great experience. He British Car Union Festival brought out over 1600 visitors to view the many different British-made cars.

The Driving season may be winding down but there are still many activities planned before we put our cars away for the season. Enjoy the roads while you can.

See you on the road…
