AMERICAN MGB ASSOCIATION MEET 2017 and SOUTH ALABAMA BRITISH CAR FESTIVAL IN FAIRHOPE, ALABAMA
story by Bruce Magers, photos by Frank Ochal

The American MGB Association (AMGBA) held its 40th annual meet in Fairhope, Alabama on October 14, 2017. The event was held in conjunction with the "South Alabama British Car Festival" which has been going for the past 27 years.

The event began with a Friday night reception dinner that was an opportunity to get together with old friends or meet new ones. The Car Show on Saturday offered music, door prizes, and food. Fairhope is on Mobile Bay and offers scenic drives and beaches near the Gulf Coast.. Thanks to Brian Daly and Michael King for their cooperation in organizing this event.

The AMGBA officers were kept busy throughout the car show with member inquires as well as signing up new members for the association.

Next year's Meet is still in the planning stage. Keep an eye on our website (www.mgclub.org) or in future issues of the Octagon for details. The MGB, MGB-GT and Midget Meet 2017 winners were as follows:
