MGFest 09 - 1st/2nd August 2009

Post  Rich on 8/11/2008, 10:41 pm


The Venue has now been confirmed as returning to the Heritage Motor Museum, Gaydon, Warks, but with a totally revised layout based on comments made by last year's visitiors.

The date is also set for the weekend of August 1st & 2nd. However, this will be a different format too with a circular road run on the Satuday, much more live entertainment (outside) on the Saturday night and the main event on the Sunday.

The purpose of this thread is to provide a place for general discussion. For more specific details, please use the other threads.

Team SmS

Our team for the inter-region games at MGFest08 was rather thrown together at the last minute. As we're now a healthy club (numbers wise anyway!), we need to have a decent team. We also need a captain to co-ordinate that team.

Volunteers please...

Team Members

  • Nick - Team Captain

Well that's great in one aspect, but terrible in another.

We'll all be at the event and won't be able to see you tie the knot... You'll just have to have the reception when you come back from your honeymoon!
Shocked Crying or Very sad

As you are the first volunteer, are you OK with me putting you down as Team Captain? I've done it already (!) but I can relegate you if so desired! Cool

Have a look Here and at the bottom right, you'll see 'Team Games'... and even a pic of our Ally pushing Adrian's old MGF - Good as Gold (That's the car's name, not Ally!)

The SmS Display

Another area that seamed to fall apart at MGFest08, mainly because it was a last minute thing and the fact that most of the display drove off before anyone got a chance to see it! We need to have something with more imagination and that doesn't involve cars that are taking part in other activities during the day... And we need somebody to head this up!

Ideas and volunteers please...

Rich

I'm captaining the events team (apparently!) so wont be manning the stand full time, but I'm happy to help out for an hour or so in between activities.

As for ideas for a theme I dont have any good ones yet but I'll have a think, maybe we should do something that highlights the counties we cover and the meets that we have? each car representing a county with appropriate rugby / football / whatever team?

Nobody said it was unimaginative... I just asked if we could be MORE imaginative! Anyhow, as I said iin the first post, the main problem was that the display all drove off in different directions and were only together for a period on about half an hour! Most importantly, when the judging was in progress we had one car on our stand... and it wasn't part of the display!

We need to come up with an idea that is eye-catching, unique and a winner! We also need to make sure that the cars we use can stay put for the duration of the main show. It's not so much manning it, but co-ordinating it both at conception, organisation and set-up stages. So any help or discussion here is more than welcome!

Right lets get some names on this list, Who's going to be available apart from me and Ally?

1) I assume Stewart will be engaged in other activities
2) I know that Paul will be on another activity because he got engaged- having a great wedding day.

So time for the youngsters to step up to the mark...Da!sh!? Max? Seb? Lee? Wink anyone else?

It only takes about 30 minutes in total and was a good giggle last year, and could make you famous, we appear on the official MGFest 08 DVD (I have a copy so I know).

We came second last year (if Lee hadnt have picked on us off we could've won!) and with a bit of organisation I think winning is easily within our grasp so come on sign up, there' less than 6 months left Laughing

We actually came second last year, and I did collect our medals for everyone. I gave them out to people I could find, but still have a couple of them left, so if you were in last years team and I didn't give you a medal, then let me know and I'll bring one along to the next meeting.

As for this year, I'm definitely in the team! I'm obviously part of the organising of the event, but my role this year will enable me to enjoy the show a bit more rather than be stuck dealing with too much! Most of my work will be in the run up to the event, and then just making sure traders are happy on the day and dealing with any issues.
