Convoys to GT-42

In 2017, it seems that all roads lead to Solvang, CA, the site of GT-42. Organized jointly by the MG Owners Club of Northern California and the Paradise British Car Club, this west coast GT will be popular with NAMGAR members all over the US and Canada.

Over the past ten years, only two GTs have been on the west coast - GT-32 in Whistler, BC, and GT-36 in Reno, NV. For the latter event Dave McCann and Bruce Woodson organized the "Rallye to Reno" for cars from the east coast. In 2017. Dave will also coordinate "Rallye Route 66", starting in Virginia Beach on June 9th, with assistance from Bill Marshall. Car owners wishing to join up with this convoy are asked to contact Dave or Bill

There will also be groups of cars coming from Florida and Texas, we are sure. On the west coast, traveling south from Vancouver, BC, will be the group who are doing the "1-oh-1". Cars from Alberta, BC, Washington, Oregon and northern California, wishing to join up with this group, can contact Anne Tilbury. They will start from Vancouver on June 14th.

Details on these, and other, convoys will be posted on as they become available, and noted in eNews!.

The GT will be held June 19th-23rd, 2017. GT-42 registration is expected to open in early 2017.

Rallye to Reno was maybe the top MG experience of my life. ' Would love to join O2O but the distances straight south are pretty far for those of us in the upper Midwest and Northeast. I'm from Michigan. There have got to be many others from NY, PA, OH, Ontario, MI, Wisconsin, Minnesota, northern IN and IL who might prefer a route perhaps starting in Chicago and going through, say, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, and Utah.

I DON'T want to detract from the efforts of Dave McCann and Bill Marshall, and maybe we can rather enhance their efforts by organizing a "feeder" that would join the McCann/Marshall Plan somewhere around OK. if there are others needing a more diagonal (NE to SW) route, please email me (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)). I would not organize this alone, but might work in partnership with one or two others if there is sufficient interest. As it is, many of us would have to drive two days just to get on the convoy.

Thoughts, anybody?

' Can't believe it! There's NOBODY driving to GT42 from the upper Midwest, Ontario, Quebec, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, et al, to GT42? How about Wisconsin and Minnesota? I'm back to "plan A" -driving out. But I sure want company. Speed and time are negotiable. Everything is negotiable. I'm going - alone, if need be. But I'd sure like some company...
