AMERICAN MGB ASSOCIATION MEET 2019 and MYRTLE BEACH BRITFEST IN MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA
story by Bruce Magers, photos by Frank Ochal

The American MGB Association (AMGBA) held its 42nd annual meet in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on October 4-5, 2019. The event was held in conjunction with the Grand Strand British Car Club’s Myrtle Beach Britfest which has been going for the past 7 years.

The event began with a Friday night welcoming party at Nacho Hippo that was an opportunity to get together with old friends or meet new ones. The car show on Saturday was held in the Market Common, the former site of the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base which has been developed into an upscale dining and residential area. The “English Tea” event was a big hit as well as “Canine Angels Service Dogs” who benefited from the proceeds of the event.

Thanks to Rod Smith and his assistants 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 and Midget Meet 2019 winners were as follows:
