Midland Centre AGM - 21 January 2013
The Midland Centre's AGM took place on 21 January at the Legacy Falcon Hotel in Stratford-on-Avon, and we were pleasantly surprised by the turnout of local members - we nearly filled the room! Thanks to everyone who braved the weather to get there. A lively and positive meeting took place, and the Committee was largely reinstated in its previous incarnation, albeit minus Ian Turner who had resigned and, sadly, Malcolm Knowles who passed away shortly before Xmas. We were very fortunate to have two new volunteers join us on the Committee - Philip Giles and Michael Baker. We will wean them gently into our activities! Copies of the AGM Minutes, elections and Officers' reports will appear on our main website soon.
Change of Natter Location
The North Birmingham MG group has informed us that they are leaving their current pub, The Beehive, and returning (temporarily, at least) to the Dog & Doublet in Bodymoor Heath, post code B76 9JD, a location they have previously used. For further information, please contact Steve Taylor on 0121 353 2754.
Midland Centre 2013 Calendar
If you take a look at the calendar, you will see that some dates have not been entered. This is because we do not yet have that information. If anyone knows about any events with missing dates, please advise.
As always, we have tried to ensure that the information in our Calendar is accurate, and most of it has been taken from the various websites of the organisers concerned, but members are advised to check with organisers before attending any events as circumstances can change, and the Midland Centre cannot be held responsible for wasted journeys.

Midland Centre 80th Anniversary Rallye - 10/12 May 2013
As some of you may know, 2013 marks the MGCC Midland Centre’s 80th anniversary, and we have a few ideas in the pipeline to celebrate this auspicious occasion.
One of our events already in the making will be the 80th Anniversary Rallye, around the beautiful scenery of the Derbyshire Peak District. For 2013, this will replace our regular Welsh Rallye.
For more information please visit our main website.
We will look forward to hopefully meeting some of you on this event and any others we organise through 2013.
