BE PART OF MG HISTORY

 

The MGCC in the UK is celebrating its 90th birthday next month and has asked clubs around the world to join in the celebrations and send photos of local commemoration events which can be shared globally.

MGCCSA has organised a run to the National Motor Museum at Birdwood as its ‘commemorative event’ and this will be held on Sunday October 11th – the same day as all other events around the world.

The format is straightforward.  Participants are to meet at Birdwood at 10.00 am for 10.30 that morning for photos, a chat, and to look through the Museum.

Photo-wise, a drone is being organised for some of the shots and the Motor Museum is helping us arrange for some cars to be photographed on the forecourt of their main building.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions there can be NO food or drink consumption anywhere in the Museum grounds, so please do not bring a flask of coffee etc. as you will have to consume it outside the grounds. Local bakeries and coffee shops are being notified that we will be in town that morning!

By 12.30 those who wish to will leave Birdwood for a run to the Gully Hotel at Tea Tree Gully for lunch.

For our brethren in the UK we would like to provide photos which show the diversity and quality of our members’ cars, so let’s try to get all registers involved.

We are also working with Birdwood to try to get interest from the Advertiser and local TV news.

The numbers of cars maybe restricted, so pre-registration is essential so the day can be organised. Cut-off date is 30 September unless we reach the cap beforehand.

Some Registers are organising their own starting point for the run to Birdwood so more photos can be taken .Please check with your register secretary for the start point and time .You still need to be at Birdwood by 10.00 am .
