Addendum for Spring Fling 2017
“Every Car Has a Story”. Quite true when it comes to our wonderful LBCs and often we see bits of those stories in the articles in our club magazines. This year, the Spring Fling will feature an event intended to bring more of these wonderful tales to the surface. All registrants are invited to participate in a new event by providing a write-up about your car’s story. Submissions should be a single page, single spaced, 12 pt font, with space for one or more photos you might provide. Ideally, submission will also be brought to the event on a USB key for uploading to our computers. The MGCCT and the TTC have offered a prize for the winning stories in each marque, to be judged by the organizers and a representative from each club. Many (all?) will be published in the coming year in the Octagon or the Ragtop. Any questions or early submissions should be directed to email@example.com.
