THE HISTORY OF COVENTRY & WARWICK MG OWNERS' CLUB
THE HISTORY OF 0502 COVENTRY & WARWICK MGOC
The club was formed in 1990 by about half a dozen enthusiasts, some of whom are still members to this day.
Members cars currently range from classic TD's MG's to MGTF's with Midgets, B's, C's, GT's and RV8's
As a club, our philosophy is "Enjoy your MG".
Within the club we have a variety of people who are willing to share their expertise with technical and mechanical issues, should advice be required.
0502 Coventry & Warwick MGOC, is one of a group of eleven clubs which form the West Midlands Region of MG Owners' Clubs.
It is also affiliated to the MG Owners' Club, Octagon House, Swavesey,
Cambridge CB24 4QZ.
Our main interests are social activites involving the use of our cars as often as possible. However during the winter months we tend to stay much nearer home with club nights featuring, quizzes, occassional presentations etc. and the ever popular annual Christmas Lunch Although some of our members do use their cars all year round.
Our programme for the year is set at the AGM in January and apart from the usual monthly meetings we list about twenty events in which we hope to participate, others are added as the year progresses.
Events vary from classic car shows, weekends and weekdays away at various club runs, a treasure hunt, exploration of the local countryside by car and on foot. Previous years have included holidays to France and occassional trips to european events. No one goes to every event and it wouldnt be expected due to other commitments, but there is a wide variety to choose from and with other members to go with.
During the summer months a 'pub run' is organised for the first thursday of every month and we can drive a reasonable distance to a variety of interesting hostelries, usually situated in scenic locations, for a pub meal, we do try and make these occasions an enjoyable experiance for everyone.
We pride ourselves on being a friendly and open club and we make all visitors welcome, so if you live in the Coventry and Warwick areas why not drop in to see us sometime.
