MOGSouth.com – We Have Had Over 1 Million Visits to Our Web Site!! Amazing!!

The MOGSouth web site (www.mogsouth.com) has reached a major milestone.  It has had its 1 million ‘Visit’ since inception.  (The MOGSouth web site has existed in its current form since 2016.)  

As you know, the MOGSouth web site is the primary communication tool for the MOGSouth Morgan Club. So, members in MOGSouth need to access the web site routinely to get MOGSouth scheduling information, news, activities details, etc.

That being said, the MOGSouth leadership is constantly trying to improve the communication with the membership.  The web site’s existence is a result of this effort. It was totally revamped in 2016, when the MOGSouth newsletter, the Southern Fours and Eights, was cancelled.  (This newsletter was last published in 2015. It was cancelled due to the lack of a Newsletter Editor (volunteer.))  The Newsletter Archives (on the web site) provide copies of these older Newsletters.

Inside Morgan | Drone tour of the Morgan car factory production line (Video – MMC)

[Thanks to MOGSouth member Bennett Shuldman for alerting me to this video. Mark]

Per the MMC – ‘For the first time ever, a drone has taken flight around the historic home of Morgan at Pickersleigh Road. The 108-year-old factory – which welcomes around 30,000 visitors each year – is famed for being home to the production of the Morgan Plus Four and Plus Six, and will shortly be the site where the company’s all-new three-wheeled model will be produced. Viewers are transported in a one-take shot of the production line, moving through the Chassis, Assembly, Sheet Metal, Wood, Trim, Final Finish and Paint shops, before finishing in the Pre-Delivery Inspection department. Eagle-eyed viewers will spot a special project or two, watch the video to identify the special project cars for yourself.’

Update: 2022 GatorMOG Spring Noggin – St Augustine, FL – 6-8 May

We just got a call from the B&B in St Augustine (Agustin Inn (B&B) https://agustininn.com/ 29 Cuna Street, St Augustine, FL 32084).

All the rooms we had blocked for GatorMOG had now been filled. Wow!! A great turnout!!

We currently have 9 couples (perhaps 9 Morgans?) participating!  It should be a great weekend, unless the weather gets us!!

Central Florida participants will drive up to St Augustine on Friday (6 May).  Taking the back roads, the trip should be about 2-2.5 hours.  Convoy times and routes – TBD.  Folks coming from other locations are on their own. 

We have a dinner reservation at the Columbia Restaurant on Friday evening at 6PM.

Saturday (7 May) breakfast will be at the B&B.  Then we will venture into town.  We do have some folks coming into town to join us for just the Saturday proceedings. 

As of right now, we envision a trolley tour and some other shopping or site seeing.  We will work out the details when we get a bit closer to the date (and have a better idea of the weather!)  Lunch is likely where we find it!

Then, we have a dinner reservation for the Catch 27 Restaurant on Saturday (7 May) evening at 6PM.

Sunday, we all go home!
