Happy July! July has always been one of my favorite month’s, and not just because of all the great MG events that take place in July. July is also the month that I entered this world! Of course, the birthdays get a bit less exciting as the years tick by, but it’s still thrilling to think about what the future might bring.

Speaking of the future; I hope yours includes participating in the 55th Annual Braille Rallye on the 22nd of July! If you’ve participated in this event in the past, you know that this is a fun event that provides a great day out and something unusual for our sight impaired friends from the Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind.

July also boasts the British Invade Gettysburg show up at the outlets in Gettysburg. This is a non-judged, no prizes, just for fun show in a great location which is hosted by our friends in the Lancaster County MG Car Club.

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix also takes place in July. This event has something for everybody. There’s a rally, a black-tie gala, historic races, car shows, a cruise (car style), parades, and tours.

Looking ahead to August, we’ve got our Test Drive event coming up. This is always a fun event with the chance to drive each other’s cars. You can drive something similar or something drastically different in order to compare handling and other features. You might end up behind the wheel of an MGA, MGB, Triumph TR3, TR6 or even a Cobra or Porsche! Mark your calendars for August 19th and don’t miss this event!

Or friends in the Lancaster County MG Car Club (PA) will be hosting their Taste of Britain show and polo match at the Forney Polo Field on the 27th of August.

So that’s a fairly busy couple of months culminating with Cheryl and I once again heading to the Put-In-Bay Road Race Revival up on South Bass Island, near Sandusky, OH at the end of August.
