Golden Jubilee MG National Meeting Bulletin #2
Catch up on the latest news about 2019’s Golden Jubilee MG National Meeting hosted by MG Car Club Queensland.
It is time to start planning your trip to Queensland for the 2019 National Meeting.
Our dedicated Committee has been hard at work overcoming what initially appeared to be almost insurmountable obstacles, and this has caused us to adopt some significant changes to what was proposed in Bulletin # 1
The Queensland Licensing Laws do not allow the service of alcohol on Good Friday unless it is in conjunction with a meal in a part of the premises that is ordinarily set aside for dining. This has meant that the proposed venue of the Noggin and Natter did not comply, and so the search was on for a licensed restaurant that could accommodate us. The Alexandra Hills Hotel Conference Centre (which was already chosen as a venue for the Farewell Breakfast) could satisfy this requirement.
How does this affect you?
Well, the maximum number that they can legally accommodate in their largest function room is 350. This means our numbers have to be capped to 350 overall. This has also caused changes to other venues. While some of the venues have altered, the traditional functions have not, however. It’s full speed ahead from now on.
We recommend that you register early so as not to miss out. Registration will be open before Christmas holidays so keep an eye on our new Nat Meet website for details mgnationalmeeting.org.au.

Time Line of National Meetings
How are those old photographs going for the Time Line? Have you started going through those old slides and photographs and earmarking them yet? These photos will need to have been taken at any of the 49 National Meetings. They will more likely be selected for inclusion on the Time Line if they have people and cars in them. (A car by itself could have been taken any time.)
Please only submit about 2 per meeting, so be very selective. We will need the who, what, where, when and why on each photo, THANKS.
Electronically – They will need to be sent to Delia & Peter Rayment at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or as an attachment to the email as a jpeg file, 2-3 Mbytes, to keep reasonable resolution. Don’t send too many in one email, as we may not be able to access them. Definitely nothing off an iPad either thanks, we can’t do anything with them.
No email facility -For those who do not have access to email facilities please post a photocopy of your original to our home address – 32 Coveys Road, Tinbeerwah. Q 4563. We ask for photocopies as we do not want to have to be posting originals back to people.
The whole collection – It is envisaged that after the 50th meeting, all the photos submitted will be available on our website for people to download if they want to make their own book of photos.
Cut off time for photographs will be a month before Easter. So the sooner the better OK. We look forward to lots of photographs.
The MG Car Club of Queensland invites you to come and help us celebrate 50 years of National Meetings at Easter 2019.
Expression of interest and enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. More details of Redlands attractions, accommodation options, cut off dates and prices can be found on our new website mgnationalmeeting.org.au.
