I made it to the event, Rick, but didn't show the car.  Arrived about
10:00-10:30.  Should have showed as I was parked so far away, no one could
find me if they tried.  :)  Now I see that showing is not just about
winning the prizes.  If you show, folks can meet easier and talk about
whatever stage of repair/restoration their cars are in.


What is the etiquette of cross-posting.  I have a longish write up of my
experiences at Britfest and the first trip in my new Midget that I posted
to the Spridgets list.  OTOH, it certainly is on-topic for MGs in general.
