Here we are, jumping into the holiday season with both feet. It is an
exciting time of the MG year, beginning with the Parts Exchange, moving
quickly to the Holiday Party and carrying over to the Trees & Trains event
in January. And this year we have a special added event for the ladies of
VMG; the Galís Lunch at Rogerís Garden We wish to thank the folks who make
all these events possible. John Seim puts in a big effort to organize the
Parts Exchange, beginning with assuring we have a suitable site and
sufficient staff of volunteers We havenít seen the results as yet, but we
can be assured that it was a success.
Jill Pullen does the same associated tasks for the Holiday Party and Bob
Spellmire for the Trees & Trains. We also wish to thank the contributors to
this newsletter; Rick Pullen for the write up on the Hobby Night; Marie
Thomas for the photos and David Moore for the photos of the Tech Session. We
wouldnít have much of a newsletter without these inputs.
Itís not too early to think about GoF West 2018. We have the registration
form with the information. Give it a good look and put it on your calendar.
Registering early is always a big help to those organizing that event.
Is it a bit late next year (September) and not too long a drive. We
should have a great trip to Lake Tahoe.
We would like to welcome Doug Smith to the Board. He has joined VMG only
very recently and has stepped up to the position of Secretary. And while
he missed the board meeting, we want to thank VP Ken Thomas for filling
in and recording minutes for us.
Publication of next monthís newsletter will fall right in the middle of
the holiday rush, so we may a bit late. Donít panic if you donít see it
until after Christmas.
It has been just about a year since I dragged the TF out of its shed
after about 40 years. Resurrection of the beast has finally passed a
major milestone. I have finished reworking the motor mounts to use MGB
rubber mounts to fit the Chevy four banger to the TF chassis. Next job
is to clean up the chassis enough to paint it.
Merry Christmas to all our VMG friends.
Hope you can find time for a wee MG drive.
