In October, the club did a Donut & Picnic
Tour. We started in Tustin, and then drove
through Live Oak Canyon, Antonio Parkway,
and La Plata, to get to San Clemente. The
run was hosted by Barbara Inskeep, and
Laurie Lyon-Diaz. It was a wonderful drive,
a great weather day, and was well attended.
Barbara Inskeep and Laurie Lyon-Diaz have
been doing an exceptional job of finding
places to go, during these times when most
places are closed.
The garage tech session was in
Fullerton, with a one day notice on the
topic of General Maintenance for a T car.
Everything went well. The tech session was
well attended, despite having short notice.
This has been another area that has been
difficult to schedule in advance, or finding
one willing to host a group.
The program for the November 3rd
meeting is “Elections – US vs. England.”
David Moore will be doing the program for
this evening. This will again be held via
ZOOM, as from what I last heard, the Elk’s
Lodges have not been given the word to open
from their national organization.
The 47th Annual Vintage MG Club of Southern
California ALL MG Parts Exchange is set for
Sunday, November 19, 2017. The Olde Ship,
Santa Ana, 1120 W. 17th Street, Santa Ana.
Time is 8:00 a.m. to noon. The restaurant
restrooms will be open. Trailer parking will
be limited. Parking in the lot is for
sellers only. Face masks will be required.
Simon Collier has made sure that we can
again hold our event, despite the fact that
the Santa Ana Olde Ship is still closed. I
do not know if the restaurant will open for
food or drinks, but I would think open for
drinks, and simple food items will be
available. If you are in the mood to go out
to dinner, please patronize the Olde Ship
Fullerton location. They are open Tuesday
through Sunday, hours vary
The ladies of the Vintage MG Club of
Southern California are having a Spring Tea
Garden event in Fullerton, on Saturday,

Prime Ribs of Beef restaurant, in Irvine,
CA. 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Cost is $45.00

your reservations now, and send you checks

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. Lighten
the load on our Events Chairpersons!!!
To add to that, every Saturday (just
about) at 12:00 p.m., a group of members
meet at the Jagerhaus in Anaheim for lunch.
A great brain trust, and the greatest topics
of discussion. (other restaurant patrons
have told us so). Carl Cederstrand, Gary
Crow, Tom Graham, and myself generally
attend. And, twice a month, at the Olde Ship
in Santa Ana, we get together for dinner, on
Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m.
Volunteerism is the key to an
organization’s success! .As the Star Trek
crew gave way to Star Trek: The Next
Generation, the next generation of VMG
volunteers needs to come forward. 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.
Until next month,
