GLOUCESTERSHIRE MG OWNERS CLUB
January 2018  Newsletter No 108

 

After the Christmas break everyone still seemed to be in high spirits as the noise level was quite high with Members chatting happily. No doubt they were catching up as there had been no meeting in December apart from the very successful Christmas party at the Lilleybrook Golf Club.

Brian commenced the meeting wishing everyone a very happy new year and saying it was good to see so many Members who had obviously survived Christmas and New Year.  There were no new Members or guests to welcome.  He also said that Christmas 2018 was already in the throes of being arranged as Dave and Liz had once again taken on the task.  They were thanked for organising the superb Christmas Dinner and Brian informed Members that the raffle had raised £160.00 which Dave and Liz had donated to the Focus fund at Gloucestershire Oncology Centre.  Laurence read out a letter of thanks from the Head of Fundraising.

John was also thanked for arranging the very enjoyable November lunch at the Farmers Arms, Lower Apperley.

Laurence ran through the forthcoming Club events starting with the first Sunday lunch of the new year at The Crown Inn, Frampton Mansell on the 28th January.  Members were asked to arrive at 12.30pm for a 1pm sit down.

A skittles match has been arranged for Wednesday 7th February at the Beacon Hotel, Haresfield and Keith had booked the White Hart at Maisemore for 18th February for Sunday lunch.

We have advanced notification for Pembrokeshire's Pendine Dash on the 20th May and Exeter's Moor-2-Sea run on the 27th May.  Laurence has all the details should any Member wish to attend.

There are still rooms available at the Bournemouth hotel for the weekend of 6th-8th April which Adrian has organised and Members were asked to contact Adrian should they wish to join Members already booked.

This year is the 50th Anniversary of the London to Sydney Marathon and Newbury MGOC are looking for donations to support the restoration of the MGB which took part in this marathon run.  A collection tin was passed round the Members and we are pleased to say that we have £18.75 to send to Newbury MGOC.

Laurence had been given some dates for the Wessex Group skittles challenge which will take place in Melksham, their home turf.  The date chosen is the 26th April and it was suggested that we arrive at 7pm.  We will have a return match during the autumn on our territory and Trev offered to organise this event.

The Willow Trust, who were our 2017 Charity, have offered two dates for a cream tea cruise and it was agreed we would  prefer Saturday 4th August, which would be a busy weekend for Members as the Sunday is the South Cerney Steam Fair.

Brian asked once again if Members had any ideas for meetings for the coming year, but no one came up with any suggestions.

Trev said that the Caper Committee were well into the organisation for this year and Sue had something to report.  Nine entry forms had been received that day plus a further one being handed to Sue by Geoffrey one of our Members.  The information had only been put on the web site at the beginning of the week, so applicants must have been waiting in anticipation!  Laurence said that we needed advertising and raffle prizes and although it was only January it was not too early to think about this.

Brian suggested we took a break before he and Laurence read out Steve's quiz in his absence.

Carol was assisted by Louise with the raffle as Elspeth was unwell, money taken was £45.00, an excellent start to the NewYear.

There were 20 questions on Gloucestershire, some of which were unknown and quite a revelation.  Dave, Liz, John, Mo, Carol  and Les were the winners with 18 correct answers.  They very kindly donated the bottle of wine, which they had won, to the Caper Raffle.


A brilliant quiz once again Steve
