Well our current membership number grew by two in the last month to 154 … one new member and one member who renewed after a three year lapse. Before I introduce this month's new member I need to issue a correction of last month's report, and that is regarding Bruce Romano whose name I spelled correctly this time. Last month I introduced him as Bruce Roman -- poor typing and QC on my part. In fact, Ruth laughs at my typing, if you can call it that, because I pretty much only use the first two fingers on each hand and both thumbs --occasionally-- but I pound the keyboard pretty quickly and accurately for the most part, though absent a spell check program I would be at great risk of sounding like a semi-literate moron.
Joe and Lynne Rizzo live in Alexandria, Virginia and have owned their 1980 MG B LE for eight years, at least this one for eight years with the implication that it is not their first brush with this LBC illness we all seem to have to one degree or another. Joe currently has no expertise to offer nor need of assistance and given that he's got eight years under his belt with his current LE I'd say he would know, in both cases.
And now for something completely different … or just the standard exhortation blurb.
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.
