GLOUCESTERSHIRE MG OWNERS CLUB
November 2018  Newsletter No 118

Our speaker for the evening was already setting up when those of the Committee not away on holiday arrived.  Before the commencement of the meeting it was the presentation of the Caper cheque to GWAAC and we waited on tender hooks for their Representative to arrive as it was nearing 8pm.  Luckily a contact number was found for Steve on a bottle of wine, which he had won in the Caper raffle in June and Brian was able to speak to him.  Steve apparently knew nothing about the re-arranged day, obviously a breakdown of communications.

Brian opened the meeting explaining there would be no presentation this month and we would start with Ian Thomas who would be talking on the Weather History for Gloucestershire.  Brian was very impressed to see that Ian would be giving an old fashioned proper 'slide show'.

Ian explained that he had been a presenter of the weather on Gloucestershire Radio with Faye Hatcher for a great number of years.  The 'slides' of the weather conditions in years gone by were amazing especially the ones showing the frozen River Severn where two men actually walked  a return trip from Arlingham to Newnham.  The droughts and the floods were also covered,  one of the most recent ones being when Fromebridge Mill was cut off and a boat was provided for those wishing to take advantage of the restaurant.   A fascinating and very informative history of the weather with records dating from 1659.   Brian thanked Ian for the wonderful pictures which also included what are now Classic Cars.

Elspeth and Carol did their usual with the raffle while Members recharged their glasses.

In Laurence's absence Brian ran through the Agenda commencing with Tim and Lou's Sunday lunch on the 18th November at the Badger, Eastington.  He said that  if anyone was  interested in a trip to Bournemouth in 2019 then Adrian would book the hotel previously used, as the rates were very good for bed and breakfast for the weekend 5th to 7th April.  A few Members thought it was a little too early to commit to 2019. 

Dave and Liz were thanked for organising the first Sunday lunch of this year where we had good food and excellent weather.

Thirty-eight Members had signed and paid for the  Christmas meal on the 8th December and  there were still places available,  the cut off date would be a week before the event. 

Rob said that the meal he and Myn were arranging would be at the Fostons Ash on Sunday 27th January but to date he had no menus to circulate.

Every two years we have a long weekend at  Llanerchindda Farm arranged by Steve and the time had come for  another visit.  There were 10 rooms already booked with 3 more  available and Steve asked if anyone else was interested.  He also mentioned a trip he would also arrange in June to the Fly Wheel Show in Bicester on the site of the RAF.  The cost would be about £53.00 for the day but if he could take 20 people then there would be a discount.  The suggested date was June 23rd.  Steve and Marion would also organise the February Sunday lunch on the 17th and this would be probably be at the Weighbridge Inn, Nailsworth famous for its' 2in1 pies.

For the last two years there had not been very good attendance on the September evening run and the Committee thought perhaps this should be deleted from the calendar or transfer it to a Sunday run.  One Member thought that the reason for non-attendance was because of the age of the Club when Members take advantage of a holiday without kids who have gone back to school.  The suggestion was  that it would be better to have the run at the beginning of the month.  Someone even suggested a September surprise run at the end of August!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I wonder who that was!

Gethin brought in a copy of the card he had given on our behalf to the Oxford MGOC on the anniversary of their 21years, he said it had been a great evening with a fish and chip supper and entertainment by a County & Western singer.

The time had come for the nominations of the Charity for 2019.    Without exception all were worthwhile Charities put forward and presented excellently by  five Members.  Focus chosen by Dave,  Gloucester Child Contact Centre Rob,  Ronans Trust Marion,  the Butterfly Garden Mike and Great Oaks Dean Hospice Wendy.    There was a show of hands for each one and the overall choice was Focus with 22 votes followed by the Butterfly Garden with 14 votes. 

There were the usual questions of why we only give to one Charity and why cannot we not  take Charities over for the following years which Brian explained thoroughly.

Thanks were given to all five nominees for their thoroughness with their proposals.

For those not attending the Christmas meal Brian wished them a very Happy Christmas as there would be no meeting until January 2019.   He asked them to think about nominations for the AGM in April as he and Trev would be standing down and we would need a further two Members at least.

The last meeting of 2018 closed at 10am
