& Prior Awards
Meet & Greet Time
Sometimes when the cars need a rest, or we just need a respite from driving them, we like to do dinner with friends, a yard party, an outting in the park, an Amtrak road trip, camping for a weekend, or other pleasantries with our friends. If you don't find something you like here, we're always open to suggestions for more fun.

MG Mid Summer Party
Saturday, July 1,2017 - 1pm to 5pm
at the home of Scott Fohrman
637 Sheridan Square, South Evanston, IL - (click for map)
Come join an MG Mid Summer party July 1st from 1pm to 5pm at the home of Scott Fohrman at 637 Sheridan Square in South Evanston. Enjoy a barbecue of burgers, dogs and sausage while racing on a 4 lane 18x 8 foot slot racing track that criss-crosses the table 4 times!. The track features huge elevation changes, silly scenery (look for the nude sun bathers or the teens overturning the outhouse) and with drinking and racing allowed, it will be a fun time. The plan is to have “crash and burn” races until 4 pm and then form up for a “Team Enduro", with your teammates spotting while you drive. Very exciting and usually chaos! Prizes will be awarded!
If racing is not your thing, the house is less than 1/2 a block from Evanston’s South Ave. beach. The large soft sand beach extends into a long shallow out into Lake Michigan, making the water warmer (usually) and fun for non-swimmer to get wet. Admission to the beach is $8 for adults and $6 for kids under 12. Plenty of room for changing and showering at the beach or at the house.
Parking is in our parking lot/alley/driveway to the west side of the house until full, then on Sheridan Square with a 2 hour time limit or better still, on Sheridan Road or anywhere west of Sheridan Road in the quiet neighborhood to the west.
Feel free to explore the 100 year old house which has been undergoing a 10 year restoration. Parked in back will be a 1932 MG J2, a 1958 MG Magnette, a 1965 MGB V8 and perhaps more!
Please call Scott with any question on his cell @ 847 212-9388 and look forward to seeing you!
