GLOUCESTERSHIRE MG OWNERS CLUB
October 2016 Newsletter No 95

Brian opened the meeting by welcoming Andrew Riga who has an MGTD and introducing Pat Furley who would be presenting his History of Films and Moving Pictures before the business part of the meeting.

Pat thanked the Club for inviting him along and before showing the films he gave us a short history on the early films which date way back to 1825.  The first films were cartoons, one of them being Mickey Mouse after which there were the animation and people mix of films.  Pat had spliced together these very old black and whites and it was time for lights out so that we could have a film show.  Unfortunately we had forgotten to organise ice cream or popcorn so there were a few groans from the Members.   We watched a selection of Mickey Mouse and then Popeye,  which was one of the animation and people in films of which Pat had spoken.  The Laurel and Hardy film which was called 'Ghost' caused great amusement . 

The first moving pictures in 1860 were hand painted on glass and Pat had examples of  these plates which were amazing.

Brian thanked Pat for his very entertaining and informative presentation.

It was good to see Jan and Keith Masters at the meeting, they have been Members for years but emigrated to Wales so it is not often that they are able to join us. 

After the raffle the meeting was re-convened and Brian said that we would go rapidly through the items on the agenda.

He thanked Andy Jarrett in his absence for the excellent last evening run of the year although unfortunately it was not well attended.  Gethin was also thanked for organising the educational trip to Abingdon and the lunch afterwards,  he had also managed to arrange good weather.

Tim and Louise had booked the Hunters Inn at Longdon for the 23rd October which is the first Sunday lunch of the winter season and asked for Members to select their choice of menu.  They would meet at 12.30pm for 1pm.

The main event of the business side of the meeting was the selection of the Charity for the 2017 Caper and Teresa and Laurence were asked to give a short precise of their chosen Charity.  Laurence said that both charities were a very deserving cause.  David had difficulty in choosing which one to support and suggested that we split the proceeds between the two, but was informed that it would cause problems putting two charities on the raffle tickets and also having two attending on the day of the Caper.

Brian counted the votes for both and with the electronic votes which Adrian had passed to Laurence,  the Willow Trust had 32 and the Butterfly Garden 13, so the Charity for 2017 by an overall majority was The Willow Trust.

Adrian had asked Laurence to bring to the attention of the Members an email which he had circulated from MGOC in respect of a proposal by HM Government to exempt more historic vehicles from the roadworthiness test.  MGOC were asking for feedback  on Members views.

The first Caper meeting would be on the 15th October and 9 entries had already been received.

Jane has made enquiries with our clothing supplier to see if they could provide long sleeved cotton shirts as one of our Members had requested this.

Keith mentioned that at our social event on Sunday he and Wendy would be holding a raffle and could Members bring along raffle prizes.  

Ken Coyle one of our newest Members had in the past  organised runs for the Herefordshire Club and he had asked if we would be interested in a Sunday run with lunch in this area.   Members were in full agreement and Ken would be asked to arrange a run in the new year.

Laurence asked for a show of hands for a visit to Thatcher's Cider Brewery, which is near Weston, with lunch in their restaurant.  He suggested that we should have a minibus picking us up from our homes so that we could all take advantage of the cider sampling.  There was also a good show of hands for this outing.

Dave and Liz who are organising the Christmas Bash asked for Members who had booked to bring along their £22.00  in cash to the November meeting.  Dave also asked for raffle prizes for the evening stating that they should be wrapped.  If everything goes well Dave has volunteered him and Liz to arrange the 2017 Christmas meal!!!!

The Committee are conscious that if a speaker or quiz has not been organised the meetings finish after about 30mins.   Brian asked Members for feed back over the next few months about possible talks they would like to hear.  A couple of speakers have already been arranged for 2017 and two Members have produced quizzes.

The meeting closed at 10pm.
