From the Editors

Summer passed all too quickly and we are now into the beautiful fall season. VMG has some great events for all of us to enjoy. Steve and Dora Kasten have planned a great run to the Bates Nut Farm and Hill Top Winery in late October. This will involve quite a bit of driving in Riverside County. If you want to make a two day event out of it they have suggested an overnight stay at the Valley View Casino. This should be a great trip in areas that we seldom visit. Lots of new stuff to  see and explore. Give Steve and Dora your support and thanks.
        In November, we will again have Hobby night at the meeting. Gather together your favorite hobby items and put them on display. Dave, Rick and George do a great job on making this one of our fun events. Later in November is the traditional Parts Exchange where we clean out our garages with unneeded parts and replace them with new gems. Everyone has a great time. Be sure to mark your calendars now for the ever popular Christmas party on December 19. We will be returning to the coziness of the Heritage Room that we all enjoyed so much last year. Another new event is the Galís Lunch at Rogerís Garden. Seating is limited and has been filled. You can contact Nancy Gaston to be put on a waiting list.

We are always grateful to our contributors to the newsletter. Without them we would have nothing to edit. Rick Pullen provided an article and pictures of the Fullerton Air and Car Show. Thanks also go to Rick Pullen for providing the minutes for the General Meeting and to Barbara Inskeep for the minutes for the Board meeting. We really should have a proper secretary to do this job. Isnít time for you to step up and take this position. Contact any of the board members to volunteer.
         Finally we send our condolences to two MG families. Our own member Dell Hake passed away in August after a long health battle. Dick Knudson was a well known figure in the MG world who started the New England MG Register, wrote MG books and lived and breathed MG. He encouraged us in forming VMG and organizing GoF West. Due to our geographical separation, our meetings were infrequent, but always warm and sincere. He   and Ann became friends of ours whom we always tried to visit on our tours east and we will miss him.
RIP, Dick.
