The show at Rocks State Park was tremendous.  In addition to numerous B's there was a good cross section of many British marques that you don't get a chance to see often.   If you missed it  you should plan on attending next year.

Cars started arriving very early despite threatening skies and a light drizzle.  By later that morning the entire park area was filled. MGs represented the majoirity of the show cars but other marques such as Triumph, Jaguar and Riley also were in appearance. 

The site of the event was scenic in a hilly, wooded area. Despite the continuous rain, participants enjoyed the food and the numerous vendors that were present   The show included a special area for cars that had won in previous shows and cars the were for sale.  A deejay provided lively music which added to the festivities.

There were rows and rows of MGs from early Bs through Limited Editions including Midgets. President Frank Ochal, Secretary Margie Springer and myself handled the AMGBA awards presentation.

It was great to meet many of our long time members in the mid-Atlantic area. I also had a chance to talk with Tom Bridges whom I first met in 1979 at the Ithaca AMGBA Meet.

Frank Ochal, Margie Springer and myself were kept busy all day signing up new members and providing other member services at the AMGBA table. The AMGBA wishes to thank Richard Liddick and the MGs of Baltimore for hosting the event.
