April 2011

 

Here are some photos from the British Bash in Louisville, TN April 2, 2011. This was the 6th year for the event and they had a good turnout of folks from Knoxville, Maryville, Morristown, Kingsport, Chattanooga and a couple from Georgia. This year there were about 83 people and 43 cars. Up a few from last year.

Rich and Lorine Holman were the only ones who attended from our club. They were going to take the Healey but the weather was too cold and they chickened out and drove their Canadian built Dodge Intrepid. That should count as it was made in the United Kingdom.

Wait, where's Pat?
Our first drive of the season on April 10th covered close to 80 miles, but we never left the county and stayed very close to the city limits. We circled the city starting from north of town, then to Crab Orchard, then the Homesteads, through Tansi, past the POW camp, under I-40 and then on to 127 and south to Shoney's for chow.Charlie and Pat drove their MG TD, Rick Peterson had his 1980 MG B, Ray & Mari Leedy drove Jasmine (1970 Jag Roadster), Bob and Jean Thomas with their 1977 MG B, and Rich and Lorine Holman had their 1957 Healey 100-6. The weather was beautiful (84 degrees) and there were no big old trucks on the road.

There's Pat, where's Charlie

           
               

Jersey Island, Channel Islands
Photos stolen from the "Jersey MG Owners Club" May 2011 Newsletter

Just so you know a little about Jersey, here's some info I found on the Jersey website, http://jersey.com.  Jersey is:
    100 miles (160 kms) south of mainland Britain.
    14 miles from France
    The most southerly island of the British Isles.
    9 miles by 5 miles.

Jersey grows and shrinks twice a day as the tide ebbs and flows in excess of 40 feet.

Barry wrote that: "I hope your summer is beginning well, with lots of MG stuff in the offing. I was on Jersey in April with Karen's car and by luck was noticed and asked to join the Jersey MGOC monthly breakfast meeting and run. It was good fun. Plus, I was front page news! Imagine."

His photo and a short article about him was on front page of the Jersey MGOC's newsletter.

       
From the newsletter: "Our April run, organised by Bill proved to be one of the best, with the sun shining and the route taking us down some picturesqe lanes, to finish at Ransomes Garden Centre. We were joined by Barry Triplett who was over here, complete with his flame orange BGT on a camping holiday. Barry, who is an American, explained that he lives in Scotland, and for living, flies a private jet fror a wealthy banker. He has a house back in the States where he also has a 1969 BGT and a 1963 Roadster."
