    Do you love the smell of hot rubber, burnt brakes, and the roar of revving engines? If so, how about a nice drive out to Angleton to support HMGCC member Pete Sandy who is racing his bug eye Sprite on the weekend of Saturday, February 23 and Sunday, February 24? 

    Adding to the excitement for all of you MG enthusiasts is that there will be several MGs racing in the event, too!

    Pete is a member of the Corinthian Vintage Auto Racing club, which is Texas based not-for-profit organization of about 320 members. https://www.corinthianvintagerace.com/ Corinthian Vintage Auto Racing (CVAR) will be holding the event at MSR Houston, a 17-turn 2.38 mile road course race track located near Angleton, Texas.

    Pete’s car is in the northwest side of the corral, and he’s well known in the group, so you can ask just about anyone where you might find Pete.  Look for a white Sprite with a wide blue strip, number 04, and Pete’s Austin Vintage Racing trailer.  Pete is competing in Group 2 and will run four 15-minute races on both days.  The morning races are likely to be early (8:00 am to 9:00 am) with a second one closer to noon, and then two more follow in the afternoon.

    Please e-mail Trish at trish.f.hardy@gmail to record your mileage.

    Date:

    Saturday, February 23 and Sunday, February 24

    Details:

    The web page for the track is https://msrhouston.com/

    To find your way:

    It’s a Leap Year!  Let’s hop on a train and celebrate a once every four years February 29th at the Rosenburg Train Museum. 

    We’ll meet up at the Old Railway Café for a quarterly breakfast at 11:00 am and then after breakfast we will walk to the Rosenburg Railroad Museum just around the corner.  During our docent guided tour, we will learn about the about the rich history of Rosenberg's Union Depot which served the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific railroads from 1883 until 1917.

    From the web page http://www.rosenbergrrmuseum.org/#about

    "Clang, clang!"  The Rosenberg Railroad Museum's (RRM) railroad bell is a favorite of Museum patrons both young and old.  Nestled up against three active train lines in downtown Historic Rosenberg, RRM is a hidden gem within city limits. With our park-like grounds, HO scale and G Scale layouts, historical railroad artifacts, Tower 17, MoPac Caboose and the "Quebec," our beautiful, fully restored 1879 business railcar, you'll be so glad you came.

    Our mechanically inclined MG club members can learn about Tower 17, the original Rosenberg interlocking tower.  Visitors can operate the interlocker (an electro-mechanical machine), pull the levers just as the tower operators did and operate actual semaphore signals during our visit to the museum.

    The Texas Songwriter Serenade


    The club will be traveling to Moravia, TX to attend the 14th Annual Texas Songwriter Serenade.  This is a great day full of driving our cars, enjoying extremely talented singer-songwriters and a bit of good conversation and laughter along the way.   

    The Serenade is a competition with some of the most talented songwriters from across the U.S. competing for cash prizes and more importantly, recognition as a top talent.  The semifinals will be from 11:00am to 2:00pm and the finals from 3:00 to 4:00pm.  It is an intimate setting with seating for only a couple hundred people and lots' of opportunity to meet the performers.

    This is a ticketed event, the organizers have not made ticket purchase available yet, but we will let you know when they do or you can keep an eye on their website by clicking HERE.

    They will have food and beverages available for purchase, but this is also an excellent opportunity to bring a picnic lunch along as the venue has picnic tables available undercover and beautiful grounds. To learn more about the event read Bob & Kim Chalker's post in The ROARS from their visit last year.

    For those of you who want to make a weekend out of it the Bugle Boy Concert Hall in La Grange, TX will be hosting a special event with the winners and judges performing at 8:00pm.  If you are interested in seeing this show there are a couple hotels in the local area.

    We will meet the Buc-ees in Katy at 8:00am and will depart at 8:30am.  This will allow time to fuel up on breakfast tacos, coffee and Beaver Nuggets.  We will follow country roads arriving in Moravia around 10:30am, in time for the start of the music at 11:00am.    We expect to depart for home around 5:00pm following the awards ceremony.  There is also the possibility for stopping for dinner on the way home.

    So grab your best girl or guy and join us for a day of Texas sized entertainment.
