Member's Choice at the Lincolnshire Poacher
Friday 5 July 2013

22 members attended the launch night at the Lincoln Natter’s new venue, The Lincolnshire Poacher. It was a warm summer’s evening and the MGs sitting in the car park were gleaming away nicely.
There was an eclectic mix of MGs out that night for the Member's Choice. Everyone found it good fun looking at all the MGs and deciding which ones they liked.
By the end of the night everyone had handed in their score sheets and it was up to Emma to add up the points. After a little while the results were announced by Joe and were as follows:
MPA77D 9 Points
THK500N 8 Points
VEV228 8 Points
AKL840 8 Points
R324CGF 7 Points
M977UJL 3 Points
DLZ7507 1 Point

Member's Choice Evening - Friday 7 September 2012

Friday 7th September was the first Members Choice Night held at the Ferry Boat Natter. Again there was a lot of support and 17 cars were on display for members to choose from. Members were given forms and asked to choose their 5 favourite cars from the ones in the car park. There was a very diverse selection. Then, once the choices had been made, Pete and Emma worked out the 5 cars that had the most votes.

The winning five cars are as follows:
1st Place VEV 228
2nd Place MG 7211
3rd Place PFR 233T
4th Place R324 CGF
5th Place Y36 CPA

Well Done to those five.  The winning rosette was presented to Mick Bath by Emma. The Second and Third place rosettes will be sent in the post to Ian Thomson and Brian Clifton. A big thank you to all who took part and showed their support to this natter. Thank you also to the Natter leaders who helped the evening run smoothly.

Finally a big thank you goes to Lee Woodall’s son Dan for all his help. Pete presented Dan with an MG pen kindly donated by Roger.

As you will see, some people drove more carefully through the ford than others!
