GLOUCESTERSHIRE MG OWNERS CLUB
May 2018  Newsletter No 112

 

Another month and a very good turnout of Members who were enjoying their socialising before Laurence called order and the meeting began. Visitors, Tim and Kate Parrott were warmly welcomed and informed us that Geoff and Jennie had recommended they came along to see if they liked us now that Tim had finished his MG TA.  It was the first outing since the rebuild and they were both shocked and terrified, but had managed to make it to the Gala Club. 

Laurence gave apologies from Brian who had had a hip operation and said that all was going well and that Brian was making good progress hobbling around on his crutches, so it would just be the just of them (him and Sue).

Our speaker for the evening was Margaret Daniels who Laurence introduced as Gloucestershire's answer to Pam Ayres, Margaret said that this title was given to her by members of a wine club in Stroud

Before entertaining us with her poems Margaret gave us a brief background of her life as a local lass attending Barnwood School in the 70s.  She apologised for the fact that there were only a couple of car related poems which she had written years ago and which she would read before the end of her presentation.  Through our lives we very often mishear remarks and the first poem was called 'Misheard'  which was a true story about her young son.  She found him on his hands and knees with 'bum' in the air looking for what she did now know.  When she eventually asked what he was looking for he replied 'I'm looking for the giraffe'.  Margaret was puzzled by this as there had been no mention of giraffes, but then she realised that she had made the comment to her husband that there was 'a draft in the room'.  This was just the start of a very hilarious evening by a very talented lady. 

Margaret was thanked by Laurence who said the presentation was full of humour and observations of life.   There was no charge but a donation for the James Hopkins Trust was made, a charity which we supported some years ago with our Caper.

We had a comfort and raffle break and then Laurence said that we would reconvene for the normal business side of the meeting.

It was with great sadness that Laurence had to advise Members of the passing of Liz Heighway.  Liz and Terry had been Members of the Club since March 2012 attending many events and also setting quizzes, one in particular was a picture quiz which went down really well.  A minutes silence was held in memory of this lovely lady who will be very much missed.

Gethin was thanked for his very enjoyable, if rather wet,  run which was the first of the year, but the bonus was we had some fabulous food at the restaurant at which Gethin had chosen for us to finish..  It was agreed that we should do the run again later in the year and Gethin said we were to pick a date,  but he would change the start venue as the road had become very busy.

There was a good presence at St Roses, thirteen cars in total, two unfortunately had to cry off,  the weather was dry but a little on the cold side. 

Club funds are still in the black and we now have fifty-two Members cars, four of which joined in April.

Laurence ran through the coming events commencing with Geoff and Mandy's evening 31 mile run on the 22nd May which would start at Seven Springs with lovely scenery finishing at a  pub.  Geoff had ordered good weather.  Twenty-two Members had  booked for the Willow Trust Cream Tea Cruise from Saul to Slimbridge on the 4th August and Laurence said that he had been told the tea would be a good feast.

Steve and Marion had arranged our  Coffee and Classic visit for ten Members to the Cotswold Classic Hub at Bibury on the 3rd June and explained for the benefit of Tim and Kate what it involved in case they should wish to attend.

The closing date for the South Cerney Steam Fair is the end of May and at the present time fifteen cars were attending along with their owners.  Members who had not booked would not be able to go at the last minute,  so it was  important to get their  names down before the end of May.

 Dave and Liz asked if their evening run on the 14th August could be moved by one day to the 15th, the incentive being the food would be at a bargain price.  All Members were in agreement.

Ken and Phil advised that their Hereford run on the 22nd July would be approximately 120 miles and Members would need an ordnance survey map.  The start would be from Ross with a cream tea at some stage during the route, finishing on the A49 between Hereford and Ross.

In 2017 we had attended the Cotswold Airport Revival at Kemble which was an excellent and interesting day, but this year they are holding it over two days 29th and 30th September and in view of the fact that as a Club we have to commit to the two days we had decided not to attend.

Laurence had received very little response to the proposed visit to the Bristol Aerospace Museum and should there be no marked change in the near future this would not go ahead.

Ken mentioned that if anyone was interested in attending the Pied Piper Summer Show at Highnam on the weekend of the 9th and 10th June they should contact him.

On the 27th May three Members would be attending the Moor 2 Sea run which was organised by the Exeter MG Club.  Chipping Sodbury Rotary Club were holding their annual Classic Run on the 24th June the cost being £27.00 per car which included a bacon roll.

The June meeting will be the last opportunity for Members to bring prizes along for the Caper raffle and also to return their raffle stubs and money collected.

In past years marshals/helpers on the Caper had been given the opportunity to have a 'rehearsal run' of the route and to have an input, but this year it was decided to keep it simple and for the Committee only to check out the route.  Paul had now produced the route guide which is on schedule and  ready for the printers.  Should Members wish to check the route out they will have the opportunity after the event.

Laurence closed the meeting closed at 9.45
