Easter 2012

Postby Ric » Thu Jul 14, 2011 3:21 pm

There's a National MG Car Club meeting in Hobart from 6-9 April. http://natmeet2012.weebly.com/index.html

I'll be bringing my MGA over on the ferry on April-5.
I wouldn't mind catching up with some of our Tas members if you can organise a get together sometime. :)

MGCC kindly hosted our trackday at baskerville for the RSLC national meet earlier this year.
Although no MG's raced on the day... probably had too much oil leaking or water in the electricals to get them running properly.....

It's not an MG if it doesn't have a drip ;)
It's Minis that had all the water in the electrics problems. I doubt there's many Lucas parts left in my car.

Small update on this. I'm now booked on the Wed night ferry (Apr-4), and driving down to Hobart on Thursday Apr-5.
I'm now going to be bringing the Liberty, and towing the MG on a trailer.
(That's costing a small fortune, but the wife insisted I bring it on a trailer.)

So, Thursday night and half of Friday I'll be at a loose end. :)

Well there hasn't been much interest yet, probably because I'm tied up most evenings.

The Concours on Saturday is probably the best time to meet up. I'll be somewhere near this car

It's at the "Hobart Regatta Ground", which appears to be here: http://g.co/maps/bqx5j
We'll be there from 9am to mid afternoon. PM me if you want my mobile number :)

I'm down at the regatta ground now
The sun has come out, and it's looking great with hundreds of classic cars on the grass.

How's the weather down Tassie way Ric? At the northern part around where my brother lives, it is snowing this morning. Good day for some indoor activities!

Definitely looking forward to seeing some pics soon Ric!
My girlfriend's dad is restoring an MGB at the moment.. Just a few timing issues to sort out then she'll be running smoothly again. They're gorgeous cars!

Quite a schedule Ric! How was the theme dinner? As above...Waiting on concours/motorkhana pics :shock:
I got this plan. It's called 'Save Ass'. And the way it works is this - I slip outta one of these windows and I run like a bastard!
