The tech session will be held at British Motor Care located at 5114 NE 42nd Avenue in Portland Oregon. This will be a joint event with the Oregon Mini Society sponsored by British Motor Care. We will dive into Lucas electrics including testing, fault finding, ignition, and improvements to your classic to run smoke free. (wiring smoke that is!)
On February 25th we have reserved some tables at the British Overseas Restaurant for the Columbia Gorge and Club 'T' MG clubs.
Indian food is a staple these days in England and you can try some of these dishes here.
- Kedgeree: Curried, creamy rice with smoked haddock and finished with soft boiled eggs;
- Burmese Golden Curry: Soft-boiled eggs fried in turmeric oil in a tomato curry served over bamboo rice;
- and of course a good Fish & Chips, plus may other goodies.
See http://www.saffroncolonial.com/dinner for a menu and prices. We will meet at the restaurant at 6:00 p.m. at 4120 N. Williams, Portland, OR 97211 for a memorable evening and great MG Community.
We will tour to World of Speed Museum in Wilsonville from the Elmer’s restaurant where we hold our meetings. We will meet at Elmer’s at 10:30 a.m. The cost of entrance is $8.50 for those 63 and over and $10.00 for those under 63. The club is subsidizing the event so the cost will be reduced by an amount that varies depending on how many attend.
Ladies Tea will be at the Workman home this year. Details will be posted when available.

This year the rendezvous will be at The Inn at Otter Crest. The Inn is nestled into an oceanside forest with acres of ancient trees, ferns, shrubs, and native plants. Here you will find the best of Oregon’s famous coastline with its spectacular rock formations, wild surf, and pristine beaches. While staying at the Inn you’ll find that many of the Oregon coast’s wonders are within walking distance. Every day the resident Harbor Seals haul out on the rocks and can be viewed from many rooms as well as the front lawn. During the summer and fall months, the central coast is home to several resident Grey Whales who frequent the area in front of the Inn.
Join us to show off your cars with this nature-filled backdrop. Registration Form.
