Members Report Vale of York Natter MGCC – June 2018

Hi Folks,

Thanks to Rick Illingworth for filling me in on what appears to have been an excellent gathering of some 15 cars. Julie and I got back home from Hull/France at 12, and by the time we’d sorted Marmalade out it was too late for me to drive over. We did cross with Tony Margel in the M type at Harewood!.

We had two new potential members from York in MGBs; Keith Overton and Alan Rowlinson, both with MGBs.  Rick has told me he reminded you of the Newby Hall Event, organized by the NECWPA. Paul Croft of NY is liasing this on behalf of MGCC as I’m away this year. If you are going let him know- presgo@blueyonder.co.uk – If you have not yet decided, entries have to be logged  by 25th June – that’s this Wednesday. Only cars over 40years old are admitted – it has an excellent car boot sale. If you’ve already booked in let him know, so he can add you on to the MGCC list

On 29 July there is the Yorkshire Area MGCC Compass run – cars from all points gather at the Farming Museum at Murton outside York. Plan your own run to be there from about 12.30.

The next Natter 19 July is our Pride of Ownership event, again run by Chas Hills this year. I’m away again, this time in Malta – so thanks to him for his effort and organization.

On 12 August Harrogate MG have invited us to have a presence at their event in Pateley Bridge. Rob Lowery has offered us a gazebo, and I now have an MGCC flag. An indication of who might attend would help planning. There are two shows the following weekend – Temple Newsam organized by the Leeds Club and Dennis on 18th and Burley in Wharfedale on 19th though I think this is now booked up.

Finally, for this report there is the Otley Vintage Transport Extravaganza on 9th September. Again I’m away for this – at Goodwood – to could someone take on liaising this?

We are certainly becoming a busy Natter – so I hope I can count on you for some help.

Enjoy this lovely sunshine and getting out and about in your pride and joy!!

Ken Cothliff, Natter leader
