From The Drivers Seat



In November, the club had a garage tech session, at Jerry & LaVerne Felper’s home. Topic was the Charging System. It was well attended, and Jerry suggested that we do a similar session on the generator and vehicle grounds. Look for that sometime in 2018.
The 44th Annual Vintage MG Club of Southern California ALL MG Parts Exchange was Sunday, November 19, 2017. The Olde Ship, Santa Ana, 1120 W. 17th Street, Santa Ana. Attendance was up, as was vendors attending. I would love to have seen more club members offer to help. Next year’s Parts  Exchange is Sunday, November 18th. Mark your calendars now.
The Gal’s lunch at Roger’s Garden is on Thursday, December 7th. Nancy Gaston is in charge of this event. Understand that it is a waiting list sign-up now, as all who signed up are hopefully going to be accommodated at the restaurant.
The Vintage MG Club of Southern California Christmas Party is scheduled for Saturday, December 16. Mark your calendars now. We will again be in the Fireside Room in the main building at the Phoenix Club. And, we will be collecting toys for children. David Moore is in charge of that. Next year should see the club visiting Lew Webb’s car collection, in south Orange County, with lunch somewhere afterwards.
There also 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. (Note: breakfast runs are fun, and easy to set up). 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! We are not in need of anyone to fill a board position right now. Positions could be available next year. 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 2018. Rick Pullen and Dave Gaston can help you plan a driving event. Just ask them.

Until next month,

John Seim
