Photo for MG2011 - Event Registration & Hotel Reservations

The All MG Events, organized by the MG Council, are held every five years. The first was in 1996 in Indianapolis – 108oF in the shade, but there wasn’t any! Then Minneapolis in 2001 – a beautiful car show site on tree-lined streets. Gatlinburg in 2006 provided the ultimate in family entertainment. Now it is the turn of the west of the North American continent to see one of these great events. 

Silver Legacy Hotel, RenoBased at the Tri-Properties in Reno – the Silver Legacy, Circus-Circus, and the El Dorado – these hotels are linked by skyways, and one parking garage where there will be reserved MG parking. Trailer parking is also on-site.

The event schedule includes:

Monday, June 13th – Package pickup, and a “Welcome Reception” in the evening for all participants, at the National Automobile Museum, just 0.5 miles from the hotels.

Tuesday, June 14th – local self-drive tours to Lake Tahoe, Carson City/Virginia City, or the same in an air-conditioned coach.

Wednesday, June 15th - an autocross race, and performance driving instruction. MG2011 Fun Auction and Morris Garage Band entertainment.

San Rafael Park, RenoThursday, June 16th – Car show in Reno's Rancho San Rafael Park, about 1.5 miles from the hotels – we expect 800-1000 cars in this show. Gala Banquet (Buffet) and award ceremonies for each Register in the evening.

Friday, June 17th – Hugs for the trip home, and farewells 'till next time.

This is also NAMGAR’s GT-36 event, so all the usual GT features for MGA, Magnette, and variant drivers will be on the menu – First Timer’s Reception and NAMGAR dinner (Tuesday evening), Magnette Owner’s Breakfast (Tuesday morning), and a drive to lunch on Lake Tahoe (Wednesday). This drive includes a catered lunch in a state park, and is restricted to 35 cars only due to parking constraints. The GT-36 Hospitality Room will be located in the Silver Legacy, which will also be the venue for tech talks, and the vendor room. Vendors will be in this room Monday to Thursday and some will also be at the Car Show site. NAMGAR is organizing “Hot August Nights”, just a few months earlier than usual!

MG 2011 first all MG Event in the west, we can expect to see western US and western Canadian MG’s that have never been to one of these events before. To make the drive to Reno even more fun for cars from the east, NAMGAR is encouraging all MG drivers to be part of the “Rallye to Reno”. This will start from Ocean City, Maryland, on June 4th, and you are invited to join the convoy as it drives Route 50 west to Reno. Stops to admire the sights are scheduled enroute. Details are on the NAMGAR website.

Event registration and hotel reservations can be made through the event website. You will also be able to order event regalia, dash plaques,etc, through the web site. Check the NAMGAR website for updates to the events as details become available.

Although I Have been a member of NAMGAR for quite a few years I have never shown my 1962 MGA MK II.

In reviewing the registration forms I am a bit confused.

Because I live in the Reno area I am not interested in the various events available.

All I want to do is show my car and have the experts give me a grade.

Is the car show open to the public or is there a fee? Will there be vendors at the car show or is there a separate day or venue for vendors?
