We have planned a club picnic for the 23rd May, covid restrictions and weather permitting.

The plan is to meet at the Masham car park on the Ripon side of the town from 11.30am,

bring a picnic or just come along for a chat. For those who do not know the area it is a large

open field with plenty of space for parking. By that date groups of thirty should be allowed to meet outdoors.

The cafe is usually open in the square for takeaways and the toilets are open. It would be good to see you all again.

There is a circular run planned for June (no definite date yet) with a picnic finish in Wetherby.

         

The Magnette Register have planned a visit to Crich tramway museum on 29th May.

 Old MGs will be permitted to park in the museum on the main street, entry would be free for the driver

but passengers would pay the going rate. Other MGs are welcome but would be in the main car parks.

Contact David Griffiths if you want to go and he will add you to his list. (01423 873132    e-mail sananddave.griff@btinternet.com)

The register is also planning a trip to Embsay railway on the 7th August, again see David.

   

Harrogate MG 2021

Plans for the show to go ahead on August 8th are progressing.

The Alvis club are going to have a club stand, instead of the two cars in the arena they hope to have about twenty present.

There have also been enquiries about a static small engine display and vintage tractors. Discussions are ongoing.

The Walled Garden have volunteered to help with the setup as usual and they are also having a stand on the show day.

Steads (MG dealer) have indicated they will be coming as well as MGOC.

Does anyone knows of anyone for the cars of interest section, please contact David.

 

We also need a volunteer(s) to drive the van (need to be under 70 years of age) to and from the showground

Contact David Griffiths 01423 873132  or  email sananddave.griff@btinternet.com

It would help if members e-mail George at susanp543f@gmail.com if they are willing to help on set up and show day.

If you could be as flexible as possible with times on the Sunday it would be much appreciated. He will bring rota sheets to the picnic as well.

Rest assured the show will only go ahead if we consider it safe and practical to do so.

 

A new car museum is opening this month in Belper, Derbyshire.

It might be a prospect for a future run/weekend (with Crich nearby as well)
