Message from the board - June 2020

Dear MG friends

In this 1st semester of the year, we were only able to organise the 170th MGCP Concentração because it took place one month before the beginning of the mandatory confinement imposed by the pandemic COVID-19 crisis.

Since then, everything has changed with particular importance for the postponement, to 2024, of the Portuguese MG European Event of the Year 2021 that will remain in the region of Cascais / Estoril.

Neither the Classic Car Shows (FIL and Vila Franca de Xira), nor the Summer ride with sardines lunch, not even the weekend in May could happen. However, as we are still hoping to do it, here are the dates and programme:

October 3rd to 5th - 171st MGCP Concentração - Alentejo II

Housed in Beja, the members will be invited to follow an itinerary that will pass through Vila Alva, Vila Ruiva, Vila de Frades, Vidigueira, Cuba, Serpa and Moura in which, in addition to the visit of the historical core, there will be churches and palaces to discover. The olive press and the cellars will not be forgotten either.

Having the conditions to carry it out, this may be the only opportunity to celebrate the club's 39th anniversary. 

Depending only on the country's sanitary situation at the beginning of winter, we can decide what to do with the Members Homage Party and the Christmas Dinner.

Stay tuned and follow us through the website, which returned renewed and up-to-date.
