From The Drivers Seat



     In September, the club attended the Boots & Bonnets Car Show, hosted by the Southern California MG Club. It was a hot day, but still well attended.
The garage tech session was in Anaheim, on the topic of filling the hydraulic dampers. We could not get the caps off of the Girling dampers, so shifted gears, and found something else to address. Still awaiting word from Bob Ashe-Everest, that he has a battery, and has cleaned out his fuel lines, before going back, and adjusting and balancing the carburetors, in the Laguna Hills area.
The program for the October 5th meeting is “The Origins of Halloween.” John Seim, will be giving a PowerPoint presentation. Steve and Dora Kasten have planned a great Festival Driving Tour for October 21st. Tom’s Farm, Bates Nut Farm, and other sites in north San Diego county. Again, more information in the newsletter.
The 44th 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 will be open. Trailer parking will be limited. Parking in the lot is for sellers only.
November might see the club visiting Lew Webb’s car collection, in south Orange County, with lunch somewhere afterwards. There has been talk of a beach party, as well as some other possible events, but nothing firmed up at this time. Contact Rick Pullen or Dave Gaston, if you have an idea for an event. They will help you to put one on.
The Vintage MG Club of Southern California Christmas Party is scheduled for Saturday, December 16. Mark your calendars now. More information in the October newsletter

We will again be in the main building at the Phoenix
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.
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, 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. 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 (2018). Rick Pullen and Dave Gaston can help you plan a driving event. Just ask them.

Until next month, John Seim
