Do You Love MGs As Much As We Do?
Simply put, we are friends, well over a hundred fifty in number, of greatly varied ages. Although most live in Ohio, other states are represented in the Ohio Chapter. The friendships are perhaps consequences of a shared fondness for, and often ownership of, MGs. In Ohio, we drive our MGs. Come join us!
The Ohio Chapter of the NEMGTR and the BuckAyes, an Ohio chapter of NAMGAR, are now closely collaborating to provide more options for the members of both clubs.
The Ohio Chapter 'T' Register of the New England MG 'T" Register was founded in 1970 when a small group of MG enthusiasts met in Worthington, Ohio. This meeting became our first Gathering of the Faithful (GOF), and a number of founders remain active. After two such gatherings, a modest newsletter appeared, in November 1970. The newsletter became the Lord Nuffield Crier and is issued quarterly.
The BuckAyes were founded in 1977 when Diane and Steven Mazurek moved to Columbus, OH. They sent a meeting notice to all NAMGAR members and there was enough interest to form an Ohio Chapter. They called themselves the 'Ohio Chapter, A-MEN'. They organized a NAMGAR Regional Buckaye GT in September 1978 at Burr Oak Lodge in Hocking Hills. It was so successful that the Chapter held a sequel: Burr Oak II in September 1981. And the rest, as they say, is history.
This is a short summary of our planned events and those of close affiliates, such as our regional and national chapters. The Calendar contains additional events that may be of interest to members.
The Fall GOOF will be held Aug. 24-26, 2022. Registration and hotel reservations are open! We plan to stay at the Mohican Lodge. A planned highlight is a tour of the Ohio State Reformatory, where the Shawshank Redemption was filmed.
