MG Car Club of South Australia MGA / MAGNETTE NOTES From....Sandra Cardnell MEETING HELD AT ARTHUR RUEDIGER’S WEST LAKES HOME ON MAY 19, 2016 Grille Badge on to a piece of mallee wood for display We had a good turnout with 27 members and six register vehicles at Arthur’s home. There were seven apologies – unfortunately 19th May is Denise Micklem’s birthday, so Nick was unable to attend. It has to be important for him not to arrive – Happy Birthday Denise We also welcomed a new member, with a Magnette. Peter Doherty has a 1958 Magnette and after sorting out registration and transfer issues with the transport gurus at Regency or Lonsdale, we should see the car. We now have hosts for the September and November meetings – Cardnells for September and thanks to Bob and Shelley Bazzica for volunteering to have the November meeting. Our Christmas lunch this year will revert to a lunch run and finish at a local watering hole. Thanks to Karin and Lindsay for the last two Christmas Lunches – they are interstate for Christmas this year. More later. Geoff Goode addressed the meeting on the changes to the categories for the Bay to Birdwood. It will result in some MGA’s and Magnettes in the vintage section and those built after Dec, 1959 will remain in the classic section. Thanks to Don Moyse who kindly mounted the Club 60th Anniversary 32 Don also expressed his desire for a 50th Anniversary badge to match his 60th Anniversary MGA Grille Badge. He has enquired at Prestige Trophies and was told that a run of 10 could be produced, but the cost would be $90 per badge. Is anyone else interested at that price – please let me know. Our President spoke about numbers for The Kimber Run and urged members to nominate as soon as possible. He has the 60th Anniversary wine in stock – please support this fundraising initiative of your Club. For those members who are interested in the footy, I am organizing a “footy and pie” night on Friday 1st July at the Clubrooms. The game televised will be Port Adelaide v Richmond, so if you want some company and a pie for supper – see you there. Hopefully we can revive some interest in Friday nights at the Club.
