MOGSouth will now have the Noggin on Friday evening (May 21, 2021) at the Surf Restaurant along A1A, 3199 S. Fletcher Avenue, Fernandina Beach, FL.
The location for the Friday evening MOGSouth Noggin is new this year. Last year’s location had certain advantages but there were also some disadvantages.
We will convene the MOGSouth Noggin around 5 PM at the Surf Restaurant.
We haven’t used this location for the Noggin before, but the staff seems excited to have us there.
The menu looks quite good and there appears to be sufficient parking. They have us on their patio (outside but there is covered space if needed) so if the weather doesn’t cooperate, I would recommend bringing a jacket or wind breaker. Also, I don’t know what the regional virus requirements will be, so do bring a mask. And, please don’t come if you are feeling ill or have any symptoms.
The Saturday Cars and Coffee event (May 22, 2021) will be held as usual, the Saturday following the MOGSouth Noggin, the day before the big Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, May 23, 2021. You must have applied, paid your fee and received back an acceptance ‘ticket’ in the mail. Bring this ticket on Saturday. Without this, they will not let you show your car, however you can attend as a spectator.
As is the norm, all the Morgans will rendezvous on Saturday morning at 0730 (yes, I know this is early but . . . ), before the Cars and Coffee event. (There is parking in the lot out front of the Surf Restaurant, as well as behind the restaurant. Note: We will only stay a few minutes and then head off to the Cars and Coffee location.) This will give us sufficient time to drive to the Cars and Coffee event and get parked together in the designated Morgan area.
If you miss our little convoy (we will leave the Surf NLT 0800 Saturday morning) you may not be parked with the Morgans.
