Our current membership has grown by two since my last report with one renewing member and one new member. I didn’t actually misspell anyone's name in last month's article, but I did suffer a moment of name dyslexia when I introduced Petra de Bruxelles and her husband Lucien Peters. I don’t know who Peter Lucien … and neither does Petra. I did enter their names in the membership database correctly so I guess I let my fingers do a little walking when I typed up their introduction.
Bill and Karen Sparks live in Clifton, Virginia and have a 1966 MGB they've owned for about three years. Bill says his areas of expertise are probably not relevant to other club members and appreciates the offer of assistance from other club members but has no need for such at this time. They too found us courtesy of Mr. Google.
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 www.mgcarclubdc.com 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.
