April 2017 necessarily “official MG Car Club of SA events” that were attended by our club members. galia available to members.. The library - new publications were added to our already extensive library this year thanks to or Librarian Geraldine Hough. Notable among these were, All British Day, with a display of 64 MGs, the annual Climb to The Eagle Run. the Goodwood Revival, the McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic day, the Bay to Birdwood Rally ,the British Classics Tour at Victor Harbor and the Ade- laide Motorsport Festival in April . Dads Army – were active during the year attending to all the requirements that need attention to ensure that all members can safely enjoy the facili- ties provided. MG Motoring – the eleven issues of the club magazine , that members received during the year, again proved to be an invaluable source of information, with details of forthcom- ing events as detailed in the calendar, together with all the various reports on the years events interspersed with items of interest and technical tips. In October 4 of our members took part in the Vintage Collingrove Weekend, which consists of social activities, a tour through the Barossa Valley on Saturday, and a hill climb on Sunday, topped off with a farewell dinner Sun- day night. This popular event attracts entrants from interstate.. In conclusion I remind you that clubs like the MG Car club, rely almost solely on unpaid volunteers, who give their time for the benefit of all mem- bers. Without volunteers we could not operate or provide the level of service and compliance with the statutory re- quirements that are necessary for the execution of the day to day duties in- volved in successfully running our club. We should be thankful that in the past 12 months we have been fortu- nate in having a team of volunteers to do just this. On behalf of all club members I sincerely thank all of these people, regardless of the level of their contribution during the year.
