Hey you! Yes you… the one who hasn’t had the MG out in over a month. Don’t you think it’s time to get that baby on the road. If you’re local to Atlanta, maybe you should think about getting involved in the club. Even if you’re not local to Atlanta, get involved in the club. This group doesn’t run itself you know.
Here’s the situation:
Have we hit a few setbacks this last few years? Yes, we have.
Do we still have a nice big MG family? Yes, we do.
Are we appealing to new members? Yes, we are.
Will our current board stay on forever? No, they won't.
Do we need more volunteers to keep things going? Yes, we do.
With the losses of our Editor and Vice President this last year, our current core group is stretched pretty thin. In order to continue in the right direction, we’re going to need some folks to step up and get involved. Whether you’re interested in writing an article for the newsletter, planning an event, or running for a position on the board, this is definitely the time to jump in and help. I’m waiting for your email… firstname.lastname@example.org
The SEMGTR needs you! Beth

Participants are asked to bring a side dish or dessert that is non-dairy and vegan (i.e., no meat, pork or shell fish). Dishes may be dropped off at the Flexner’s in advance of the parade. Spouses may also be dropped off at the Flexner’s early and will go to the parade in a separate car to watch the MG’s at the end of the parade.

This is one of the most fun events we do! Make sure to bring the kids and grandkids if you’ve got ‘em.
In a nutshell, we set up an MG friendly obstacle / carnival game course. As the driver uses their skills to drive the course, the navigator takes on carnival like tasks. Teams are scored on skill and speed. We always have lots of willing navigators, so come one, come all.
The club will provide Fried Chicken and drinks for everyone. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share. We need to know you’re coming so we order enough food.
The meeting will be held around 1:00 after lunch.

A note from the host of this year’s Mountain Tour: “Our home is located in a development which has twisty, hilly, paved, private roads. It will be tempting, but we ask that you obey the 25 mph speed limit. We have many walkers, bikers, deer, and a few dogs we must keep in mind.”
All attendees, please bring your best picnic lunch and drinks for yourself and a lawn blanket or chairs. We will start off with lunch on the front lawn. This allows everyone to stretch and have a guaranteed bathroom.
After lunch there will be a brief driver’s meeting before the 1:30 tour. The drive will last about one hour starting and ending at 1167 Mill Creek Trail. The cars will be sent out in 3 groups - fast, medium, and slow.
