Sprite 60th

2018 is the 60th anniversary of the introduction of the Austin-Healey Sprite Mk 1 – the ‘Frogeye’. The Midget and Sprite Club are celebrating this by having a Birthday Bonanza at Wroxall Abbey Hotel on Sun Aug 26th 2018. We are planning to have a massive meeting of Spritely things and all Sprites, Midgets and their derivatives are welcome to attend. There will be trade stalls and events on the show field at Wroxall and we are expecting a massive array of Spridgets on the day. Entrance will be just £10 (£15 after 31/05/2018) and will include a Commemoration Rally Plaque.

Royal Lancashire Show

Neil has received the following letter from Anthony Taylor from the LAC who is coordinating the classic cars at the show.

Dear All,

Thank you for your e-mails and offers of bringing your cars along to display at the Royal Lancs. Show, on your choice of day/s. The Show Committee has put a geat deal of effort into making this a memorable event as it returns to Salesbury Hall Showground beside the River Ribble.

The Lancashire Automobile Club has a good sized area located on the inner perimeter of the Showground. LAC will be at the Show each day and we will have “strong ” gazebo in our area.

We have been advised this week that cars must be on the Stand by 8.30am each day and cannot leave until 5.30pm. Health and Safety Rules demand this of any vehicles within the Show Ground.

I am still awaiting the tickets and these should be posted to you this week, on the basis of two per car.

Royal Lancashire Show

We have received an invitation to display our cars at the Royal Lancashire Show which takes place on 11th, 12th and 13th August.

We have the Millers Park show in Preston on the  Saturday (12th), so the option would be the Sunday.

This will be discussed at the club night on Tuesday



Our Events list has moved

The new Midget and Sprite Club website has provision for a local area events list, so we no longer need a separate site.
If you visit the MASC-NW site, you will automatically be re-directed to our new events list.
You can also access the list by either visiting the Midget and Sprite Club website at www.midgetandspriteclub.com, select Club, then Region and then North West to take you to our area page and then press the Local Events button.

Alternatively, this link will take you straight there http://www.midgetandspriteclub.com/events/categories/event-north-west/

You have received this email because you are on the list of Midget and Sprite Club members in the North West Region, if you would like to be removed from the list please let me know.

Welcome to the New Website

As of Monday 24th April 2017, the Midget and Sprite Club web site has a new format and some new features.

To access the member’s only areas and the forum, there will no longer be two different passwords, each member will have their own user name and password and MASCOT will no longer carry a password that changes from time to time.

If you registered to use the web site before, then your user name and password are the same, if you haven’t registered yet, please follow this link to get yourself signed up.

Every region now has its own web page as before but this can be accessed directly from the menu below the Club option. In addition each region has two sub-options, one takes you to a page of messages from your Area Rep, the other to a list of events in your area.

Your Area Rep can add events for your region as well as messages to keep you informed about what is going on in your area, your email address may be included in a distribution list such that when your Area Rep adds a message, you will automatically get and email.

Over the next couple of weeks, we will be building the email distribution lists for the regions and you will get an email advising you which region we think you are in, if you don’t want to receive the emails, you can let us know then.

As well as appearing on the individual region events page, all events can now be viewed on the main club calendar.

We have moved the club shop and membership payment to our own site, payment will be handled by a secure payment area.
