The Club Matters.
Time is zipping by, and we have just got back from MOG19 in Norfolk
It was great to see so many of you and to have some quality time to speak to so many people , it makes me realise how important the annual event is!
Thanks to Alan and the team for the years of work and to Morgan Motor Company for displaying the new Plus Six . Krazy Horse did their best to scare me to death in the upgraded 3 wheeler. My eyeballs nearly jumped out !! Jayne now wants one ….hmmmnn
All of the officers have received feedback over the last year regarding your requirements for MSCC events, and during a previous National committee meeting we discussed the future of our annual events, and indeed the declining number attendees at the Annual Dinner Dance.
How do we balance the huge effort needed to organise such an events whilst making it value for money and meeting everyone’s expectations . A difficult challenge indeed! Recently the National committee asked our own events Coordinator Frank Whitefoot to investigate the options for an event in 2020 following the declining number of attendees at the Annual awards dinner. Frank has completed his investigation for next year and beyond, and we now have a format that relieves the centres from the burden of organisation and suggests the FEGP team in conjunction with Frank and SCCT take the lead.
The basis of this Franks proposal is for a new series of events linking with an existing scheduled event. The objective being to increase appeal by offering a different and enhanced experience, probably at different locations around the country. FEGP has approved Franks approach which for 2020 is the proposed venue of the Warwickshire Walton Hall Hotel & Spa (a short drive from M40 J15) and this would also provide the location for a Welcome Event on Friday and the Annual Dinner on Saturday evening.
The day programme for Saturday will take place at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon, a short transfer but possibly with an option to visit a National Trust property en route. In addition to visiting the museum the venue has also agreed some onsite car-based activity. The weekend would then conclude with All Morgans Day at Blenheim Palace on Sunday. Further information will be published in the September edition of Miscellany and bookings will be launched in October- Thanks Frank !
At the end of July, Jayne and I very much enjoyed joining some of you at the RAF Marham visit with Cranmog and the Silverstone Classic, both excellent events.
In the meantime happy summer motoring.
