TCMG Loses Two Of Our Cherished Members

Stan Roman, January 2015

Earlier this month we lost a well known and beloved member, Stan Roman. Stan and Anita joined TC Motoring Guild way back in 1969 and have been active members for much of the time since. Even after they sold their TC due to health issues, the Romans remained active, participating in many of our events and meetings year after year. The accompanying photo shows the Romans at our Halloween Party several years ago.

Services for Stan were held on January 9. Fifteen TCMG’ers were present along with a pair of TCs in the procession. To send cards or letters of sympathy, see the club membership directory for the Roman’s mailing address. The January newsletter will feature more about Stan and his time in the club.

Phil Marino, December 2014

It is our sad duty to announce the passing of Phil Marino, a long-time TCMG member and devoted MG TC enthusiast. Phil was a talented machinist whose components are running in many of our cars today. He was a pioneer in the modern, unbreakable axles that we all enjoy as well as the creator of countless other parts that make our lives easier including spin-on oil filter adapters, brass master cylinders and much, much more. As a 30-year member of the TC Motoring Guild, he became a friend and mentor to many TC owners and he will be missed by each and every one.

Services for Phil were held on December 29th. Several TCs were present, many with Phil’s parts installed, and they all caravaned together from the service in his honor. Look to the January newsletter for more about Phil Marino and the people he befriended in his journeys.


mgtf-adOur next meeting will be held on January 27 at our usual Montrose location. A video detailing the history of post-war MGs will be shown, including the TC through TF, MGA and racing efforts. Also meet the new 2015 TCMG executive council! Doors open at 7:30 PM. For more meeting and event information, visit the Calendar Page.


castleparkOur next event will be held on Saturday February 7. Start off the new year with a thrilling, no holds barred TC Motoring Guild miniature golf competition! The winner takes home our coveted Lame Duk Kup Trophy, to be treasured for one whole year. Lunch and awards will follow at the nearby Robin Hood British Pub. For more information, see the Calendar Page or the flyer in our January / February newsletter.

Lame Duk Trivia: A traditional event of over three decades, and always the first one of the year, the Lame Duk Kup is a constantly changing event of competition and cheating, followed up by lunch and awarding of the coveted (not really) Lame Duk. Come test your skills and your ability to bend the rules to your advantage! To learn a bit about the history of this event, click here.
