It’s with a sense of sorrow that the members of MGCC Geelong are advised of the recent death of Elva May Rush who passed away on June 10th. Elva, together with her husband Paul, joined the club on 22/08/2014 and our thoughts are with him and Elva’s extended family at this time. A private burial service will be held for Elva and a memorial service to celebrate her life will then be held at a later date. All members are invited to attend the memorial service once it is announced.

This e-magazine is great reading. Some members might remember that a visit to the Stoewer Collection of John Stanley was part of one of the Foxy Tours a few years back. There is a story in this magazine about this collection.
The Square Rigger Run that was on our calendar for next week (June 10) has been POSTPONED due to Covid restrictions. Once a new date has been set, we will advise you.
Our very popular member Mike (Killa) Killingsworth passed away recently and a funeral is being planned. UPDATE. Mike’s funeral has been postponed because of the Covid lockdown. Further information to come.
Killa was a member of our club for over 30 years and was a very active member for all of that time. Killa had a great collection of MGs and other classics and hosted the very popular “Killa Run” each month from his shed at Ocean Grove. Killa was awarded the Club’s prestigious Octagon award for his services to the club and his help to many members with their technical questions.
He will be very much missed. Our thoughts are with wife Jennie, children James, Lucy, Eva and grandson Callum.
RIP good mate
We have a very supportive group of sponsors, who advertise in our monthly (GTorque) magazine. We highly recommend these organisations and you can see there adverts HERE.
We have been advised that our next monthly member’s meeting can return to our clubrooms. The State Government has relaxed the rules so we can accommodate up to 200 members as long as everyone signs in using the Services Victoria Q Code application. We will also be broadcasting the meeting via Zoom for those who cannot attend in person.
If there are any changes to this relaxation of rules we will let you know.
At our Annual General Meeting, the Annual Report was presented and a copy is available HERE.
What’s the big deal about March 2nd?!
For starters, it is the anniversary of the first non-stop around-the-world flight in 1949 by a B-52, Texas was granted independence from Mexico in 1836 and The Sound of Music movie premiered in 1965.
Tuesday 2nd March 2021 is a much more important date!
It’s our AGM of course.
Will you remember to come to the Hall of Agriculture at the Showgrounds? Good, because there will be nothing happening at our usual venue. Turn left into the showgrounds opposite the entrance to the Traffic Safety Centre, drive straight towards the oval where you are parking and a short walk on your right to the Hall. Simple.
Usual time of starting: 7.30pm
Remember your COVIDSafe conduct. Everyone must QR code on registering – assistance available even if you don’t have your smartphone.
Leave a space between yourself and other members from different households. Bring your mask in case it’s needed. No kissing please!
We are indoors for the meeting but there is no heating or cooling – please come prepared.
