British by the Sea
The CT MG Club's 33rd
"BRITISH BY THE SEA”
JUNE 7th 2020 HARKNESS MEMORIAL STATE PARK, WATERFORD CT
The CT MG CLUB's BRITISH BY THE SEA GATHERING will be on June 7th 2020, at Harkness Memorial State Park in Waterford Ct.
Our Featured Marque for 2020 will be MODIFIED MG’s, and I believe that we will attract a collection of cars that will show the results of some great, creative, engineering efforts. Maybe we will get something resembling one of Big Daddy Roth’s famous caricatures !
Any modification from Factory Original is accepted, and it is up to the owner to decide if they want their car to be displayed in the Modified Class or in one of the standard MG Classes.
We are also working on the requests to break up up the Jaguar Sports Class, in order to separate the older XK120, 140, 150s, the XKEs, and the newer Jaguar Sports.
More info will follow
Our BBTS Gathering is always scheduled on the first Sunday in June, at the scenic 240 acre Harkness Memorial State Park in Waterford Ct., on the north shore of Long Island Sound. We want to encourage people to come down and enjoy a day mingling with other LBC owners, talk about cars, have a picnic, a glass of wine, and also take in all that Harkness Memorial State Park has to offer, such as the beach, the Mansion “Eolia”, and the Gardens. The CT MG Club donates a large amount of our proceeds from BBTS to the Park to purchase plants for the West Gardens, helping to restore the “Eolia” Gardens to their original grandeur as designed by Beatrix Farrand in 1919. In addition, we provide “people power” over a few weekends to plant them.
We have selected a variety of quality food vendors to attend in order to satisfy any appetite, from hot dogs and hamburgers, lobster rolls, and wood fired brick oven pizzas, to Ice Cream for desert. You can also bring a picnic to enjoy and share “out of the boot” of your car.
The expansive lawn areas offer ample room for the display vehicles, vendors, spectator parking and a spacious area for trailer parking.
We hope to see you all on Sunday June 7th, 2020
