Looks like Margaret’s diet has gone a bit too far.

 

When Paul said to Margaret to ‘Pick up a Penguin’, that’s not what he had in mind.

 
When I said lets go on a double date and bring a bird for my mate thats not what I meant!!!
 

I don’t think much of your new dance partner Margaret let’s hope he has Happy Feet!!

 
When I said find someone elses bill to put it on I didnt mean literally!!
 
Any ideas????

 

Can anyone come up with any photos which we could use in a caption competition

 

Email me if you can come up with anything at my email

Should you like to contact us with any general question about the club please email secretary@glosmgoc.co.uk

GLOUCESTERSHIRE MG OWNERS CLUB
August 2018  Newsletter No 115

 

As both Brian and Sue were unable to attend the meeting, it fell to Laurence to run the meeting on his own.
We were entertained with a series of films by the Gloucester Film Makers Club. Laurence introduced John Greene, who is the Secretary of the Club. He explained a little about the club and the fact that it has been running for 56 years. John introduced his colleague Mike Morris, who had put the show together and would be in charge of running the films.
The films, although varied had chiefly a transport theme. They included everything from a wonderful old advert by the Two Ronnies for Austin Morris cars to a Heath Robinson contraption that allowed you to set up a tent on the roof rack of your car and sleep in it.
There were some old films of local interest such as when The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh came to Gloucester for the 800th Anniversary of The Royal Charter and also visited the Railway Carriage and Wagon Company. Also some early films of events specially made to entice people into the cinema afterwards to see themselves on film. These included some interesting scenes at Barton Fair, Morelands Factory, Dinner time at the Wagon Works, Tredworth School and a Tram ride along Northgate Street. One film that showed a policeman on point duty at The Cross had several people convinced it was Dave Carter!
Another early film of local interest was of cars competing in trials at Rodborough Common and up the Nailsworth Ladder.
Other topics included an early Gas Turbine Car, the first Driving Test, stock car racing, stunt driving, a Dowty Turbo craft and more up to date, the Welland Steam Traction Rally and Gloucester Retro Festival with the cast of ‘Allo ‘Allo.
All in all a most varied and interesting evening and one which everyone said they would like to be repeated next year.

Laurence thanked John & Mike for a fascinating and very informative series of films.

After the raffle the meeting convened again.
Firstly, Gethin & Jan were thanked for getting the weather right for the repeat of their April run. Lovely scenery and once again good food at the venue at the end.
Also, Rob & Myn were thanked in their absence for a lovely run, finishing up at Fostons Ash. Glad they got their car sorted in time!
A lovely cruise on the Willow Trust’s boat was held recently, which everyone enjoyed, particularly the sandwiches and cakes provided.
Also, the following day the club were present at the South Cerney Steam Extravaganza and had a photo taken by the Editor of Classic Car Weekly. This has appeared in the most recent copy of the newspaper that came out the day before the meeting.
In Sue’s absence, Trev delivered her report. Myn has checked the accounts and they have been accepted. The Club funds are still healthy. We now have 60 Members, which includes 8 new Members since April, which is encouraging.

Laurence then ran through the upcoming events. Firstly, Dave & Liz’s run on Wednesday will start in the Lay by at the top of Tunnel Hill GL54 4HF on the A40 towards Oxford. The Snowdon Run, Tetbury Car Show, Gloucester Retro Festival and the Newent Onion Fayre were mentioned.
Andy Jarrett gave a brief outline of his run on Tuesday 18th September, starting at the Whitminster Inn, however he is still waiting for the menu for the finish venue.
Keith then circulated a food choice list to help Wendy sort out the catering for the Club Social on Sunday 23rd September.

Laurence then said that the presentation of the Caper cheque to the Great Western Air Ambulance would now be at the October meeting and not the September meeting. This is due to a mass exodus of Committee members for the September meeting! This means Trev will be running the September meeting and Richard has kindly volunteered to organise a Quiz.

Looking further ahead, Laurence mentioned that we still need someone to organise a Sunday Lunch for January (27th), however nobody volunteered to take this on.

The Winner of the Caption Competition was Janet with the caption ‘I thought you only went wrinkly if you stayed in the water too long’. Congratulations to Janet, who was not able to be with us.

Trev gave a brief report on next year’s Caper and said that planning was well under way.

Finally, we had a birthday to celebrate. It was Paul Drewett’s birthday on that day and he was given a rousing chorus of ‘Happy Birthday’.

With no further business, Laurence declared the meeting closed at 9.50pm.
