If you notice there was no membership article in last month’s issue of The Spark, my apologies. If you didn’t … never mind. I’m afraid I was in Florida with my wife who was recovering from kidney and liver transplant surgery and was just a little distracted, so I missed the deadline by a lot! I’ve missed the deadline this month too but the editor gave me an extension which is a good thing because we have 6 new members to introduce. Those new members plus a couple of renewals bring our current membership total to 153 members.
Joe Mudd lives in Burke, Virginia and has a 1973 MG BGT he’s owned for 42 years. Someone must have tagged his car because he submitted one our car-tagging applications. He says he has no expertise to share with other members or anything he needs help with, and after 42 years I would suggest he knows what he’s talking about.
George Imredy has owned his 1972 MG B for only a couple of months and he too says he has no expertise to share with other members or anything he needs help with, but I think we’ve all been there and given a little more time George may well discover something he could use help with.
Chip and Lynne Kelley live in Potomac, Maryland and have a 1962 MG A they’ve owned for about half a year. I’m sure Chip has proffered profuse thanks to Lynne since the 62 A was a birthday gift from her.
Chris Lutz’s 1960 MG A 1600 is under a full restoration, something I am sure he is looking forward to being completed. He lives in Woodbridge, Virginia and has owned his A for a year.
Greg Nolan just bought his 1971 MG B and indicates the answer to the questions regarding expertise he can offer and assistance he needs is “not yet.” He lives in Hamilton, Virginia and we owe a friend of his thanks for referring him to the club.
Bill and Pam Swift live in Sterling, Virginia and have a 1974 MG Midget they’ve owned from new – that’s awesome! Bill also says he has no expertise to share with other members or anything he needs help with and was referred to us by our friends at London Auto.
We want you to being new members into the club and exactly how you do that is up to you, but if you have a method that works let me know so I can share it with everyone else. Otherwise, whenever you are out and about keep an eye out for fellow MG enthusiasts, and should you happen across one whilst out and about, try to chase them down (safely, of course) and ask them if they are a member of our club. If they aren’t, invite them to join. Please download a current version of the membership application or the “car tagging” application from our web site so you can leave one whenever you seen a stationary MG and can’t identify the owner. If you are able to speak to the owner you can also direct them to our web site at www.mgcarclubdc.com or to me. Whenever or wherever you come across fellow MG enthusiasts don’t be shy, ask them to join the club.
If you have any questions please let me know at email@example.com.
