Continuing our full complement of activities this year,
our next major event is the popular Dave Jackman Fall Color Tour. Details are below.
We anticipate there will be a 2022 holiday party, although details have not yet been arranged.
For 2023, a Natter is currently being planned, as well as at least one GOOF(Gathering of the Ohio Faithful). Details are not yet available. We will be hosting GOF Central in 2024. We are beginning the planning process for this larger event as well. Typically, we run a GOOF the prior year to check out our leading candidate location. A GOOF location in 2023 will likely be selected for this purpose. If you are interested in helping plan an event, we would love the assistance. Please contact Jeff Fields.
This year's Natter, Spring and Fall GOOFs were terrific successes and lots of fun! The Natter and Spring GOOF were covered in previous editions of our newsletter, The Lord Nuffield Crier. The Fall GOOF will be covered in our fall edition of the newsletter.

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.
