2016 Conclave Dates Announced

The 60th annual TCMG / ARR Conclave will be held October 6-9, 2016 in San Luis Obispo. Click here for the latest updates.

New Regalia Item

Just added: A new jigsaw puzzle featuring technical drawings of TC parts. This is the same puzzle enjoyed at our 2016 Puzzle Night competition where the various teams found that this puzzle is harder than it looks! Can you beat the winning team’s time? Buy one and find out! See the Regalia Page for more info.


Our next monthly meeting will be held on July 26th.  The program is “MGs Through The Ages”, presented by our own MG expert Pete Thelander.  We will learn the details of the various models produced by The M.G. Car Company from its conception onward. You would be hard pressed to find a more knowledgeable person on this subject, so join us for this opportunity to learn something new about the cars we love!

Our deepest gratitude goes to Cindy Henkels for hosting our Summer picnic this June for the 17th year in a row.  47 members and guests were in attendance with three TCs driven by Loe, Spiegel and Ratnayake.

For more meeting and event information, visit the Calendar Page.


Don’t miss this crowd favorite! Hot Dog PartyOn Sunday, July 10, TCMG members Kay and Larry Einhorn will be hosting one of their world-famous Chicago-themed hot dog parties at their home in Encino. The day will start with breakfast snacks at the Crandall home in Malibu, followed by a 90-minute scenic driving tour to reach the site of the hot dogs.

Please RSVP for this event so Larry can plan how much seating and how many hot dogs will be required! Watch for a flyer in the mail with RSVP information.

June Event Recap: 18 members with 7 TCs took part in GoF West 2016 in Redmond, Oregon.  Numerous awards were achieved (noted above) including seven 1000-mile club patches, given for driving an MG over 1,000 miles each way to the event!  Driving TCs were Thelander, Page, Loe and Jones.  Edgars drove their TC part way and Bailey brought theirs via trailer.  Also notable was Elizabeth Page who drove an MG TF the whole way with her sister Renee as co-pilot.
