MGCCWDCC Logo by Charlie Scott
Membership Director


We have three new members to welcome to the club this month, plus a recently lapsed member who renewed his membership. Those numbers were counterbalanced by four members who are definitely not renewing their membership -- two got rid of their MGs, one passed their MG on within the family, and one moved out of the area. So we added four and lost four to remain at a current membership total of 165, BUT only 129 of those are current 2019 members … more on that elsewhere in this issue.

Biull Mullen lives in Broadlands, Virginia and has owned his 1978 MGB for about 10 years. He found our club on-line and professes to have neither expertise to share nor need he could use help with (i.e., he didn’t answer those questions on the form).

Christopher Mawdsley has a 1980 MGB LE he's owned since 2002 and lives in Falls Church, Virginia. He's know about our club pretty much since he got his MGB but apparently wanted to fully consider membership before joining. IF you need assistance with driving on the left side of the road give him a call. Likewise, he could use some help rebuilding an alternator.

Carl and Jenn Sweatman live in Vienna, Virginia and have a 1978 MG Midget named "Bertie." They could use some help with general car and feeding of a 40-year old LBC, but at present don’t have any particular area of expertise to offer up (though undoubtedly they will).

We want you to bring new members into the club and exactly how you do so is up to you, but if you have a method that works let me know so I can share it with everyone else. Also, just in case you were wondering or worried, it isn’t necessary for you to sell one of your MGs in order to get a new member to join, in fact I would suggest buying another MG rather than selling yours. Whenever you are out and about keep an eye out for fellow MG enthusiasts, and should you happen across one whilst out and about, try to chase them down (safely, of course) and ask them if they are a member of our club. If they aren’t, invite them to join. Please download a current version of the membership application or the “car tagging” application from our web site so you can leave one whenever you seen a stationary MG and can’t identify the owner. If you are able to speak to the owner you can also direct them to our web site at or to me. Whenever or wherever you come across fellow MG enthusiasts don’t be shy, ask them to join the club.

If you have any questions please let me know.
