To Rover Enthusiasts Mid-Atlantic Region of the USA :

Several RSTCA members in the general neighborhood of Maryland have asked 
that we encourage Rover enthusiasts to get together at the "MG On the 
Rocks" car show and parts market in northern MD on Saturday September 
30, 2006. The park is located about 30 miles north of Baltimore and 8 
miles northwest of Bel Air, Maryland. For maps and specifics, please see 

I am late in getting off the mark on this but Tony LaVigna and Jose 
Scoseria have rattled my cage! Looks like we already have at least one 
each of P4, P5, and P6, so keep 'em coming. If you can bring a car, 
registration is only $15.00 if done before 9/1. I will be contacting all 
of the RSTCA members who are on our mailing list and within a state or 
two of the event. Anyone who has not previously had any contact with the 
RSTCA is certainly invited to attend and coordinate with us.

As a personal service from me (Glen Wilson) and to make it easy to 
register (and to get you off your butt), I will do the registration 
paperwork for you. Email you car details (year, model, color) to me at 
rovercar at comcast.net in the next few days, send $15.00 to the same email 
address via PayPal, and I'll fill out the forms and mail them in to the 
show organizers. Get them to me no later than 8/23/06 because I'll be 
sending in what I have the following day. If we register en masse, they 
may give us a category with prizes (for you guys who live for that). If 
you want to register yourself, go below to the link labeled Registration 
Form & Flier, print it out, fill it out, write a check and mail it in.

Don't think about i! Just register NOW and come to the show!

If I can get a head count of people who can bring Rover saloons to The 
Rocks, I will contact the show organizers and try to get us a Rover 
saloon category or at least a place where we can park our cars together. 
It will be important to get our registration materials in as soon as 
possible. Bring a Rover if you can, but come visit with us at the show 
even if you come by taxi or oxcart. Again, I apologize for getting on 
this at such a late date, but some of us worry about asteroid collisions 
and don't plan far ahead!


I expect that this will be a typically low-key RSTCA event. That means I 
will show up with a green awning, a green card table, some folding 
chairs and some handouts. Once we have a list of people planning to 
attend, we can see if people are up for other activities.  I know Tony 
sings opera and Jose does that thing that he does. Don't miss it!

I have never attended this event before, but I have always heard glowing 
reviews of both the show and the beautiful location. It's run by an MG 
club and advertised as a sportscar event, but all marques and models are 

PLEASE RESPOND via the Rovernet or contact me directly at 
rovercar at comcast.net

Please let me know if you have registered a car so that I can tell them 
what to expect.

Glen Wilson, RSTCA
