Robbie Burns Day - next event!
From our SPOKES editor -
I again would like to say a thank you to all who have submitted stories and photos over this past year. With out you the Spokes would be blank. I look forward to another fun year and lost of fun stories. We are at the point of saying goodby to 2016. Along with that is time for looking back on the trips and experiences that happened during the past year. The driving season for thoes sports cars was an extends one. That is something that doesn’t happen often so hope you enjoyed it. One of the benefits of that is having more time to show then off. By showing your sports car off you let people see how much fun you can have in a sports car, even without all thoes electronics gagets.
I would like to take this time to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday. Enjoy your Holiday with family and friends. Maybe Santa will bring you that needed part or special modification for your LBC. I will see everyone at the January Meeting. As a phrase used by MG’ers SAFETY FAST during the holiday time.
Happy Top Down
