April ended with the Chronological MG Car
Display, in conjunction with the Olde Ship
car display, on Sunday, April 30. It was the
largest turn-out yet!
May had the Annual Safety Check, at the home
of Jerry and LaVerne Felper. Jerry got a new
gate, with MG logo. Very nice. The O.C.
Scottish Festival at the Orange County
Fairgrounds, is held the weekend of May
27-28. The club will be joining the cars and
bikes on display on Saturday, May 27th. We
must be inside the fairgrounds by 9 a.m.
June starts out with the annual Huntington
Beach Concours d’Elegance, on Sunday, June
4th. There will be a VMG display area. Plan
on doing a group picnic as well. On June
24th, the morning will start with Cars and
in Aliso Viejo, followed be a tour and visit
to Lew Webb’s car collection, in south
We used to do a lot of breakfast runs.
Breakfast runs can be added to a month’s
already scheduled event, as not everyone can
make the monthly event date. It can be a
driving tour, or a rally with questions.
They are easy to put on. Step up to the
plate, and plan on putting one on. (Baseball
season starts in April).
To add to that, every Saturday (just about)
at 12:30 p.m., a group of members meet at
the Jagerhaus in Anaheim for lunch. A great
brain trust, and the greatest topics of
(other restaurant patrons have told us so).
Jerry Felper, Carl Cederstrand, Gary Crow,
Charles Lusch, Bob Zwart, and myself
And, twice a month, at the Olde Ship in
Ana, we get together for dinner, on Mondays
at 6:30 p.m.
Volunteerism is the key to an organization’s
success! Currently, we are seeking someone
to fill the position of club Secretary.
Other positions could be available. As the
Star Trek crew gave way to Star Trek: The
Next Generation, the next generation of VMG
volunteers needs to come forward. Everyone
has an excuse why they cannot do so. The “I
just want to sit back and not get involved”
plan is really taking a toll. Please
consider taking a board position for at
least one year. While it looks like we have
a lot going on, we can always use club
members to volunteer. Positions are opening
up on the board, and we would love to see
new faces become active there. Rick Pullen
and Dave Gaston have events, that just need
someone to host. Kaz and Judy Bielinski are
working on a driving event for the year
2017. Rick Pullen and Dave Gaston can help
you plan a driving event. Just ask them.
GoF West 2017 will be in Santa Maria, held
on July 10-14, 2017. The event will be held
at the Radisson Santa Maria. Special group
room rates of $125.00 per night have been
secured, plus applicable taxes and fees.
