2020 British By The Sea Gathering

Marque of the Year is the Modified MG

June 7, 2020

The CT MG Club's 33Rd ANNUAL
"BRITISH BY THE SEA”

Greetings To All


Due the current health crisis we are all now living through our British By The Sea Gathering has been canceled for 2020. In conjunction with the cancelation of the gathering Planting Day is also canceled.
We had thought of trying to reschedule but we feel that it is in everyone's best interest to simply cancel it all together. We really have no idea what our new normal will look like going forward and that uncertainty is what prompted the cancellation.
Initially we had hoped to be able to enjoy the gathering as a welcome relief to what has a become a world turned upside down but that is not the case. 
The choice for Marque of the Year, the Modified MG will be celebrated at next year’s gathering along with the selected t-shirt art work.
As has been our custom that the award for Member of the Year is presented at BBTS. I would like to get your feedback as to whether we should suspend the award for this year or make the presentation at the next monthly meeting when we resume that practice.
Please let me know your viewpoint on this matter by contacting me via email at alnosenzo@gmail.com
I know we can make it through this crisis and hope to be smarter and stronger in the future.
Good Health and Stay Safe

CONN MG CLUB PLANTING DAY
SUNDAY MAY 17th


Join us and help plant the West Garden at Harkness Memorial State Park. This is The CT MG Club’s contribution to The Park which gives us the opportunity to use this beautiful location for our British By The Sea Gathering.
Drive your MG, bring a picnic lunch, (as no food is available at the park), and a small hand trowel for a fun day at the park!!  Please dress warmly, as there is always a breeze.  We promise that there will not be any snow!!!
Plan on being there at 9:30, but if you can't come for the whole day, come whenever you can.  We will park in front of the Mansion Eolia.  Enter through the MAINTANANCE driveway, which is just East of the Main Park entrance.  Proceed up to the mansion EOLIA. Please drive slowly on the Park Roadways. Coffee and donuts will be served.  For more information; call Annie Wincze @ 860-693-4249 or e-mail MGTDANNIE@GMAIL.COM.
