Early June

Posted by Steve Simmons on May 28, 2024


TC Motoring Guild Turns 70 Years Old!

Although the group was loosely assembled back in 1952, TCMG was officially formed on June 19, 1954 in the offices of Road & Track magazine. This month we celebrate 70 years of honoring the MG TC! Our annual Summer Picnic Meeting will double as a birthday party commemorating our seventh decade as a one make, one model club. Selected historical artifacts from our archives will be on display. We hope you can attend! See below for further information.

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.




The annual Summer Picnic and TCMG 70th Birthday Celebration will take place on June 22 at the Simmons Residence. A special display of historical items from the earliest days of our 70-year history will be on display, some that haven’t been seen in decades. Bring a picnic lunch or dinner and enjoy the company of fellow TC aficionados!

Entertainment will include:

  • Bring a picnic dinner and dine in the garden with your fellow enthusiasts (dessert and coffee will be served by the hosts)
  • See a display of historical items from the earliest days of TCMG’s 70-year history
  • Tour the garage and collection of cars
  • Win mystery prizes in our mystery contests (TCs only!)

Those driving TCs or other interesting classics will get VIP parking in the gravel area by the entrance.

This will be an RSVP event.  RSVP information was sent out by mail to local members, and by email to the group. If you need more info, please contact Steve Simmons.

May recap: 24 members attended our May meeting on Zoom. 7 TCs were driven a simulated journey to the meeting by Edgar, Lemieux, Schirripa, S Simmons, Sorensen and Zucca.

Monthly Events

Our next driving event is in the planning stages and will be announced shortly.

Details including meeting time and location are forthcoming.

May recap: 12 members with 5 TCs participated in our May event. Those with TCs were Bickley, Lemieux, S Simmons, Thelander and Zucca.

Monthly DIY Tours

This month’s tour theme will commemorate 70 years of TCMG. To participate, take your TC on a drive of 10 miles or more and photograph it with something that represents one of the following:

1. 70
2. June 19 (the day the club was formed)
3. 1954 (the year the club was formed)
4. Birthday

Those who complete at least 10 miles during their photo shoot and submit a qualifying photo by June 30th will receive a point toward this year’s Sargent Award. NOTE: Because it’s too easy, we have to set one rule: We will not accept photos from the club’s 70th birthday party on June 22nd! Submit your photos to Joyce Edgar by June 30.
