*******************************************************************************************************

MG Car Club Florida is one of the Oldest MG & All British Car Clubs in the State of Florida. It originated in Jacksonville, FL, in 1956. Dr Jerry Keuper, our Chairman Emeritus (in Memoriam), brought the Charter to the Brevard area. The club, under Jerry's watchful eye, has had many years of great success. 

The club is now centered in the Brevard County, Florida area. Our goal is for individuals who are MG and All British Car enthusiasts to get together and to enjoy MG/British Car  fellowship. Dues are only $15.00 a year.  Our monthly events are designed to allow all members to come and enjoy the company of other MG/British Car enthusiasts. 

Membership is open to anyone who has an interest in MGs , All British cars and the preservation of their proud heritage - Owners of ALL British Marques are welcome and encouraged to join. It is the goal of the Club officials to keep it's members as informed as possible of the events and newsworthy information . To this end, the club publishes a monthly newsletter. We are always looking for input from our members on newsletter items and these can be forwarded to Linda Knoblock-Raupp  President.

Due to the wide diversity of our car owners (1930s-1980) and the large geographical area (Daytona to Fort Pierce) of our members, the monthly meetings, usually held on the third Saturday of each month,  may vary to accommodate as many members as possible (see Newsletter & Events). We have held many events, with more planned, such as trips, tours, rallies, annual auto show, monthly meetings including breakfasts, luncheons, dinners. 

Next Club Events-

·       December 8, 2018 Christmas at Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales.  Norman Ridgely is coordinating this event.  The plan is that the north group will gather at the Cumberland Farms Store at John Rhodes and US 192 at 8:00 AM for an 08:15 AM departure. You will travel west on 192 to Holopaw, then south to Yeehaw Junction. That is about 57 miles, an hour or so. The south group will gather at Wawa on SR 60, just east of I-95 at 0830, and depart at 0845. That leg to Yeehaw is 26 miles.  Hopefully, both groups will arrive in Yeehaw Junction at the same time. In the past, we were able to use the rest rooms at the Desert Inn, but it is now closed (?) so my advice is to go to one of the convenience stores just east of the traffic signal by the Desert Inn for relief &/or coffee etc.  From Yeehaw to Bok is about 48 miles, half is one lane east, one west with three passing lane sections; the last half is four lanes with a median.  Figure an hour or so. Our ETA should be around 1030/1100.  Once on the grounds, everyone is on their own, no guided tour. For those who need transport at BOK, they rent chairs and scooters. You might be able to reserve one in advance so call them. And there is a shuttle service to the Tower and to Pinewood. This is not a level ground park. It is the highest point on peninsular Florida, 298 feet above sea level, called Iron Mountain. But most all the paths are paved so the walking is easy.  So, put December 8, 2018 on your calendar!  PLEASE call or email me so I can keep track as to those coming.  You can still come without your LBC.  The group discounted price is $19 for all or $12 for gardens only.  Lunch will be at the Blue Palmetto Café located by the visitor’s center.  For Bok Tower Gardens information please click on https://boktowergardens.org/  Please see below Norman’s updated instructions to prepay for this event!

·       December 12, 2018 MGCC-FL Christmas Dinner at Marsh Landing, Fellsmere 5:30.  Come out and enjoy great fellowship with the club!  The ‘Gift Exchange’ game was so much fun at the Perez’s we plan to do it again.  Bring an interesting wrapped gift of $10 and be prepared for some laughs!  The trip plan is to meet at the DAV Building (the big Orange) located at 2265 N Harbor City Boulevard in Eau Gallie at 4:00 PM leaving no later than 4:30 PM to caravan to the restaurant.  The trip is ~52 miles.  Always remember, your participation is valued, so, if your British car isn’t up to the trip, please drive your everyday car and come along.  We have a reservation for Marsh Landing at 5:30 PM.  Please RSVP to provide an accurate count for the restaurant reservation.  Send your RSVP to Linda at oldcarsnewcars@bellsouth.net or Marilyn at delewis67@aol.com.  To view menu, click on the following link  http://marshlandingrestaurant.com/
