Catch up on all the news and upcoming events with the Illawarra Register of the MG Car Club Sydney thanks to the March report by Michael Hough.
With thanks to Michael Hough
Hi to each of you! It is with great pleasure that I look forward to the first of 2018’s Illawarra Register MG Car Club runs – a social run that will be held on the morning of Thursday the 22nd of March to the Mt Keira Summit park, followed by morning tea and an tour of the nearby Mt Keira Scout Camp.
We are aiming to create a series of relaxed and enjoyable events that give the option of taking the MG for a run while also enjoying the social side of the club. A second success factor is that the MG Illawarra Register is combing with the Jaguar Drivers Club (Illawarra Register) for these events, and as a consequence we are getting a useful and interesting mix of cars from these two classic British Marques.

Some MG Motoring Photos from the Lions Club of Gerringong’s 2018 Motor Fest
This month Ron Critcher and I supported the Lions Club of Gerringong’s annual fund raiser motor show held on Saturday 17 Feb at the very picturesque Mick Cronin memorial oval at Gerringong.
In February, the car show coincides with the monthly street fair and markets held in the nearby main street of this lovely Coastal lifestyle town. It is a classic example of a regional community event and is well supported by a wide range of clubs, but still offers a smaller and friendlier scale of attendance.
I attended in my Mk 2 Jaguar saloon this time, but as the associated photos show there was a good range of MGs present, mostly, but not limited to, MGBs and MGTCs.
I look forward to seeing you on one of our MG Car Club (Illawarra) runs soon. A reminder that the dates are:
- The morning of Thursday 22nd March
- The morning of Thursday 24th May
- Lunchtime on Sunday 22nd July
- The morning of Thursday 27th September
- The morning of Thursday 22nd November 2018
Please remember that these are social runs, so if the weather is kind – bring the MG and enjoy yourself. If the weather is bad, bring the MG or something more modern and enjoy yourself anyway!
