Hi Contacts - Happy MGA New Year! We trust that most of you have one or more bench projects going on that hopefully will be completed before the driving season starts in a couple of months. For those of you in warmer climates, enjoy driving your MGAs, Magnettes or Variants. Here's some MG information that will be of interest to your chapter or interest group members.

NAMGAR Regional's - Something your chapter might want to contemplate!

Is there any event on your club's calendar such as a weekend trip or a car show that could also be expanded to become a NAMGAR Regional? It's something that you might want to consider. What the heck, the more the merrier. If you've already done the planning for an event then you're more than half way there. Having a regional just might fill up that motel or enhance your car show field. Contact Carol Shamonsky, NAMGAR Vice Chairman, for details and advice on hosting a NAMGAR Regional.

Just think Spring is almost (well sort of) here. Get those winter MG projects completed too.
