Our first two events for 2019 have been well attended with the largest group attending our 64th Annual Awards Banquet in several years. Ted and Sharon Whitehouse managed the affair, with Sharon’s beautiful flower arrangements serving as unexpected additions to our door prizes!
Our first Tech Session at Artisan Auto Body was also well attended, and details are in an article elsewhere in this issue of the Spark.
Looking to March, please adjust your MG winter rehab, repair or maintenance schedule to have your car ready for our early spring Winter Romp on 9 March. Our first driving event of the season intended to dust off the cobwebs on our MGs, Allowing for spring time rains, this is our only event with a rain date, no need to test the water tightness of our cars unnecessarily. We will be meeting in Manassas and heading west for lunch, then return. Please let Steve know if you will be attending. See article elsewhere in this issue of the Spark.
The date of our second Tech Session of 2019 has been changed to Saturday 16 March at London Auto. Always our most well attended tech session. Join Nick Vadala, proprietor of London Auto Services and Dave Shillerstrom as they reminds us "Get those cars out and drive them - it's the best thing for them!" See article elsewhere in this issue of the Spark.
As with all our tech sessions and any other event, your attendance makes our events worthwhile and there is absolutely no requirement or expectation for you to drive your MG. Modern cars most welcomed.
