Since I have become president I have had many more conversations with members of the club. (This is my own fault for not doing this earlier as a general member.) I find in thoseconversationsthatweareaverydiversegroup. The first thing we have in common is a love of the MG (or in the case of Geoff & Pat, a love for the "stretch-MG", the AC). This is the common thread that brings us together. After talking to some of the members, I realize that we may have many other things in common that we don't know about unlesswetalktoeachother. Inourclub,wehavedoctors, lawyers, pharmacists, designers, musicians, salespeople, skilled craftsmen, computer experts, accountants, court reporters, engineers (the slide rule kind) -- oh, wait, even the locomotive kind. I'm sure there are many others that I haven't recognized.
I found out at a recent gathering that one of our members loved jazz. Being that in one of my "previous lives" I was a jazz musician, I wish I had know that earlier so we could have enjoyed that common bond together as well as our love for MGs.
NAMGAR has a saying, "While it's the cars that bring us together, it's the people who bring us back." I hope to see everyone at British Motorcar Day on SUNDA Y , May 4th in Roswell.
Gwen & Dean Maddock will be hosting a "tea" on the 10th, then Geoff and Pat Kent will be taking us on a tour on the 17th. "Drive your British Car Week" is at the end of the month. Busy month, indeed!
