Our annual Winter Romp on 11 March is the next event on the calendar, so I hope you are ready for our first driving event of the season. Ted Whitehouse has dusted off a very popular tour we did a few years ago and has planned a great day out to Hagerstown, MD and lunch at 28 South. As with many of our driving events, driving an MG is not essential. Your participation regardless of vehicle is strongly encouraged or just meet us for lunch. Please RSVP to Ted as soon as possible. Please note the rain date of 18 March for the Winter Romp just in case the weather turns nasty. Details below and elsewhere in this issue of the Spark.
There are two more technical sessions on the calendar, 25 March at London Auto and a 15 April Spring tune-up, a hands-on session hosted at the home/garage of Randy Shuck. See details below and elsewhere in this issue of the Spark.
With all of these tech sessions and the Winter Romp, you should be ready for the show season. The first event will be the Williamsburg Car Show on 22 April, and the Britain on the Green show on Sunday 30 April. Please go to the links below to register for these great shows.
