    TC Provenance List Being Updated and Modernized by TCMG

    The well known TC Provenance List was created by TC owner Bob Stein well over a decade ago.  Steve Simmons has assisted with data submissions and updates for the past few years but the list has grown too large to manage by hand.  TC Motoring Guild has jumped in to help update, modernize and maintain the list.  Two of our members, Mike Simmons and Steve Simmons are currently working to convert years of hand typed notes into a sorted and organized database of TC car numbers, owner names, locations and historical data.  The project will take a tremendous amount of man hours but the end result will be a fully modern and searchable database, hosted on the TCMG website.  You can see the old hand-typed Provenance List HERE until the new version is completed.

    Conclave is Coming!

    The 67th Annual TCMG / ARR Conclave will be held October 1-3 in Paso Robles. Look for information on the Calendar Page as well as in upcoming newsletters and group email.

    Tight Competition for the Sargent Trophy!

    The year is more than halfway over, and the battle for the Sargent Trophy has been fierce!  The top three competitors are separated by only 2 points, and all three have had a perfect attendance thus far. Could this be the first time we’ve awarded three Iron Bottoms in a single year?

    History Project Underway

    Boxes of historical documents and artifacts dating back to the 1950’s and not seen in many years have recently been unearthed from the archives. A project to sort and preserves these items is currently underway by club historian Steve Simmons with assistance by Rob Zucca. Look to future newsletters for interesting discoveries as the project develops.



    NOTE DATE CHANGE! The September meeting will be held on Saturday the 23rd at the home of TCMG members Dave and Bobbie Spiegel in San Marino. Dave will be giving a multimedia presentation on his trips to New Zealand to participate in a private driving tour of pre-war M.G.s. His MG SA and TC will also be on display. This presentation will be simulcast on Zoom. Further details are forthcoming.

    August recap: 27 members attended our August online meeting. Five TCs were driven a simulated 10 miles to the meeting  by Edgar, Lemieux, Loe, S. Simmons and Hughes.

    Monthly DIY Tours

    To celebrate this Labor Day weekend, you task is to find something holiday-related.  Perhaps just something that says “labor”.  Don’t worry, we aren’t making it that difficult.  We at TCMG are an equal opportunity holiday celebrators, so you are allowed to choose ANY holiday in September.  But how many can there possibly be?  You may be surprised…

    You can pick any holiday (they seem to use that term loosely) from the above link and base your photo(s) upon it.  Send your photo(s) along with a description and what holiday you chose to Joyce Edgar by September 21 for inclusion in our next Zoom meeting.

    Drive at least 5 miles during your photo shoot and receive a point toward the Sargent Award.  Competition for this year’s award is tight, with three members also going for the Iron Bottom Award.  See:

    Now get those TCs out there, be creative, and have fun!
