    TCMG Donates Big To Foster Children’s Resource Center

    In lieu of our usual holiday toy drive, TCMG gathered monetary donations for the Foster Children’s Resource Center this season.  Our members were very generous, raising $2,454.00 for this worthy cause. Well done!

     

    meetings

    Our first meeting of the new year will take place on January 26.  Due to Covid-19 concerns, this meeting will be held online using the Zoom application.  The meeting will begin at 6:00 PM Pacific time.  (You can log on starting at 5:45 PM)  You can participate using any computer or device with the free Zoom software installed.  If you require assistance installing Zoom, contact Steve Simmons or David Edgar.

    The evening’s program will be a presentation by TCMG member Charley Williams, who will show how to convert your TC’s dash lighting to LED.  He has recently performed this operation on his own TC and will be showing photos of the process.  Q&A will follow the presentation.

    Note that anyone making a simulated journey to the meeting in their TC by driving a minimum of 10 miles on the day of the meeting will receive a point toward the Sargent Award.

    December recap: Our annual Meeting and Holiday Party was held online via Zoom.  27 Members and guests attended and five drove a simulated trip of 10 miles or more.  Those who drove were Edgar, Hunsberger, Lemieux, Loe and Simmons.

    events

    Start off the new year with a thrilling, no holds barred TC Motoring Guild Scavenger Hunt competition from the comfort of your own home!  Our expectation is that most items can be found in the house of a MG enthusiast.  The winner will have their name added to our coveted Lame Duk Kup trophy with a “duck” memento sent to them to enjoy until it is practical to deliver the DUK trophy.

    Meet on Sunday, January 38 (aka February 7) at 6:00 PM, for a ZOOM event.  Mike Simmons, ZOOM master, will extend an invitation providing the link for the meeting at the beginning of February.  Our competition begins shortly after log in.  Price per person is very affordable ($0) for one fun evening.  Bring your beverage of choice and wear comfortable shoes.

    To earn Earl Sargent points, drive your TC at least 10 miles on February 7th.

    For more information see the January/February newsletter or contact Richard Loe.

    November Recap: 7 TCs participated in our November “Thankful Photos” do it yourself event.  Those who sent photos and received Sargent points were Edgar, Lemieux, Loe, Hunsberger, Simmons, Spiegel and Zucca.
