2016 MOGSouth Fall Meet, 14 – 16 Oct, Lakeland, FL

We had a magnificent 2016 MOGSouth Fall Meet, 14 -16 Oct ,  in Lakeland, Florida!!

The Friday evening Welcome Party was hosted by Tom and Kathy Coryn at their exceptional lake house.  Everything was wonderful . . . the setting, the food and drinks, but mostly the warm and sincere hospitality of Tom and Kathy.  What a way to open the meet!!  A big thanks!!

On Saturday we had a tremendous showing of Morgan cars and drew a huge crowd of spectators at the Lake Mirror Classic.  Twenty Six (26) Morgan cars were on the field spanning the range from prewar three wheelers to 4/4s and Plus 4s, Plus 8s and Roadsters, and we even included the nearly new M3Ws and Aero 8s.   The Lake Mirror Classic folks announced our class winners and formally presented the owners and cars with their awards at the podium.  Bob Wilson and a few other qualified Morgan experts judged the cars and it proved exceptionally difficult as all the cars were superb.   Congratulations to everyone!

After the show, we had a great dinner overlooking the water at the Harborside Restaurant in Winter Haven.   A wonderful way to wind down and socialize with old friends and make new ones.   A very big thanks to those that came to Florida to attend.
