From The Drivers Seat



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 Coffee
in Aliso Viejo, followed be a tour and visit to Lew Webb’s car collection, in south Orange County.
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 discussion.
(other restaurant patrons have told us so). Jerry Felper, Carl Cederstrand, Gary Crow, Charles Lusch, Bob Zwart, and myself generally attend.
And, twice a month, at the Olde Ship in Santa.

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. Contact the Radisson Santa Maria at 805-928-8000;

Until next month,
John Seim
