GLOUCESTERSHIRE MG OWNERS CLUB
January 2019  Newsletter No 119

It was the first meeting of 2019 and Brian wished everyone a happy new year commenting on the fact that  it was good to see so many Members as it was a dark January evening.   David and Elspeth had brought along potential new Members Pip and John who had two MGs,  John a Midget and Pip an BGT and they were welcomed by Brian who asked if they had races against each other!!!

The chosen Charity for the 2019 Cotswold Caper was Focus and as it was the Charity put forward by Dave C he  had organised for Richard Hastilow-Smith Head of Fundraising at Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospital Charity to come along and tell us all about their works.

Richard's knowledge about the Charity was second to none, he gave an interesting insight into the works carried out and even showed us a 1929 ticket for the raffle of a Morris Cowley, supplied by the Wicliffe Motor Company, which was the first appeal for a gamma probe.  Henry Trinder who plays rugby for Gloucester is a Patron of the Charity and hopefully we will be having a rugby player to flag off the Caper cars in June.

A warm vote of thanks was given to Richard by Brian.

During the break Elspeth and Carol held the usual raffle and they raised the grand sum of £57.00 for Club funds,  a fantastic amount. 

Brian thanked Dave and Liz for organising the Christmas meal which was a super evening with great food.   The staff at the Golf Club always look forward to our parties as for whatever reason they find us very entertaining!!!!!!!!!!!!   The money raised by the raffle of £130.00 was donated to the Great Oaks Hospice which is in the Forest of Dean and was one of the Charities proposed by Wendy.  Dave and Liz were also thanked for arranging the presentation by Richard Hastilow-Smith.

Sue said that the Club funds were still good and that Membership was 66 cars, Pip and John had decided to join during the break.

The winner of the Caption Contest was Marion with 'Gloucestershire's latest sniffer dog was looking very pleased with himself' and as she was not at the meeting to receive the bottle of wine Laurence said he would take charge of it.

The first Sunday lunch of this year is at the Fostons Ash on the 27th and Rob said that the owners were fans of the MG.  He had forgotten the menu so Members were asked to check the website and let him know the choice of food by email.

A quiz has  been organised by Gethin for the February meeting and one of the Members asked if there was a topic, would it be a quiz on drinking and driving.  Dave had tried this but unfortunately he had spilt his beer!!  We would have another quiz at the August meeting and Keith already has one ready.

Laurence passed round Steve and Marion's' Sunday lunch menu in their absence which is on the 17th February and  would be held at the Weighbridge Inn near Minchinhampton.  He also mentioned that there were still two rooms left at Llanerchindda Farm for the end of May weekend and if anyone wishes to book these rooms to contact Steve and the Farm via the website.  There are currently 11 cars and their owners booked.

We had received an invitation to the Torbay MGOC Pasty Run on the 25th August and have been given the opportunity to register in advance of the public date of the 19th April.   Laurence took a note of those interested.

As support for the September evening runs have been very poor over the years and following on from feedback at the November meeting, the Committee decided that the August and September evening runs should be brought forward.

Laurence had been looking at different topics for Club nights and asked if a 'Horse Race Night'  would be of interest.  It was agreed and this would take place towards the end of the year either October or November.

Dave asked if there was anyone who would like to organise the Christmas Party this year at a different venue,  but there were no takers.   It was then agreed  to hold the 2019 Christmas Party on the 14th December at the Lilley Brook Golf Club and Dave would pop into the Club and book the date.

Trev gave an update on the Caper stating that Margaret had the route sorted aided by Paul and that the venue at Thornbury  could  cope with 120 cars.  The entry will be kept open but we might have to cap it if we get too many entries.   The advert was due to hit the paper middle January and Laurence had received interest from various clubs already.

One of the nominations for this year's Charity was the Butterfly Garden and Dave Gregory said that the golf club to which he belongs had sponsored them.

After 8 years as Chairman Brian had decided to finally step down this year so we are looking for someone to take over his role at the April AGM.  We do need a few more Committee Members so Members were asked to think about nominations.

The meeting closed at 9.30pm
