meetings

At our next monthly meeting on January 24, the crowd favorite returns with your award-winning (through cheating) host, Gene Olson!  Teams will compete for fabulous prizes (or not) by spinning the wheel and answering trivia questions relating to the MG TC and TC Motoring Guild.  Look for the TC in the parking lot with one wheel missing and you’ll know you’re in the right place!

December Recap: 47 members and guests attended our Annual Holiday Party at Sportsman’s Lodge.

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

 

events

Join us on February 11 for the 2017 Lame Duk Rallye! Start the day at TCMG member Ron Spindler’s business, where he has a collection of vintage automobiles on display. From there we depart on a short driving tour / clue rally. Test your powers of perception as you journey across the San Fernando Valley while seeking answers to nefarious easy questions provided by your rally master. Answer wisely and win the coveted Lame Duk Trophy! Please bring a pencil or pen so you can write down your answers as you travel the rallye route.

Our destination is the Spindler home in the Hollywood Hills, where there is yet another vintage car collection to drool over.  We finish the day with a gourmet Lasagna Lunch by world-famous (or at least TCMG famous) chef Diane Spindler!

Please note this is an RSVP event (so Diane knows how much food to prepare).  Watch for a flyer in the mail with details on starting time, location and RSVP information.

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