GLOUCESTERSHIRE MG OWNERS CLUB
October 2018  Newsletter No 117

 

The Committee were back after their absence from the September meeting due to enforced holidays!   Well laid plans are very often changed at the last minute as was the case with this meeting which should have commenced with the presentation of the Caper cheque to the Great Western Air Ambulance representative.  Brian explained that Steve Mould was unwell and a replacement was not available at such short notice so the cheque would be handed over at the November meeting.  He welcomed new Member Chris Little and said Friends UkeNited would open the meeting and entertain us for about 40 minutes when there would be a break so that we could refresh our glasses, do the business and hold the raffle.  Friends UkeNited would then round off the evening for us.

Terry, whose stand in last year was Luigi, said they were not a real group as they didn't belong to a Club, they were more like roving minstrels with him sending out emails of the venues booked and waiting to see who turned up.  He was expecting sixteen  but in fact there were twenty to entertain us and Dave C said they wouldn't get paid any more.  Terry recognised Dave as a trouble maker and asked if he was a bully at school!!! 

They played their ukuleles and sang a wide variety of songs, from Willie Nelson, Travelling Wilberries, George Formby, Hermins Hermits, Tom Jones, and a name from the past McGuiness Flint a Scottish Duo.  They did a good rendition of Leonard Cohen's 'Alleluia' and Lonnie Donnegan's  'Putting on the Style'. 
   

(Can you spot our Chairman)

 

Carol and Elspeth had sold the raffle tickets as Members came into the room so Brian said that we would quickly run through the Agenda.  He thanked Andy Jarrett in his absence for organising the September evening run which was very enjoyable, with good food at the Whitminster Hotel,  even though only a few cars turned up.  Thanks were also given to Wendy and Keith, again in their absence, for the excellent social day held at their home.  Keith had produced a lovely run through the Forest of Dean and Wendy had provided a wonderful selection of food including sumptuous desserts.  The proceeds of the raffle which amounted to £100.00 was donated to Genetic Disorders UK, which was the Charity of their choice.  A thank you card was received from the Charity which was circulated amongst the Members.

Trev and Sue were thanked for organising the venue and food for the return skittles match against the Wessex MGOC where we were the runners up once again, but only by one point.  Someone suggested that we should have had a recount.  A rematch will be organised in 2019.

The arrangements for the 2019 Caper are well under way, the route had been mapped out, but Trev said that he was missing his 'right hand man' who was on a short break.  Brian said that Members  need to decide on their pet Charity for next year (not a charity for pets) sending nominations and a few words about them to Laurence before the end of the month so that a decision can be made at the November meeting.  He also emphasised that it was to be a Charity who benefited locally and not one of a bigger concern where the money went into a big pot.

Laurence asked the Members for more suggestions with regards to our social evenings which would be better for all

Dave and Liz are organising a two-course Sunday lunch at Teddington Hands Inn on the 21st October and on the 18th November Tim and Louise have booked the Old Badger in Eastington for their Sunday lunch.

Our Xmas Bash is on the 8th December and to date we only have twenty-five Members booked.  Dave asked for raffle prizes to be brought wrapped to the November, failing this on the night.

The diary for next year still had a few spaces for organisers of the lunches and runs, Myn and Rob offered to organise the January lunch, Dave and Chris the June evening run with Richard taking on the July  run.

Richard thought it would be a nice idea to do a Memorial Run in remembrance of Liz Heighway who sadly passed way this year and as  the mileage would be quite high he and Terry (Liz's husband) wondered whether they should make it into a two day run with an overnight stay.  The Members thought it was an excellent idea, so Richard and Terry would draft out their ideas, look into hotels and bring it to the next meeting.

The raffle was drawn before Friends UkeNited returned to their instruments.

During the second half of their session Terry asked if Brian could re-create his triumph of last year by accompanying them on the tambourine.   It was only a little one he was given which looked more like a pair of hand bells, but he did a magnificent job with rattling the bells to 'Country Road'.  There was also audience participation with the 'fly song' which caused a lot of amusement.

Brian gave Friends UkeNited a vote of thanks for a super evening, one to be remembered.

The meeting closed at 10.10pm
