The Connecticut MG Club proudly announces plans for BRITISH BY THE SEA 2013, its annual Gathering which brings together all Marques of British cars, trucks and motorcycles. The 2013 event will take place on SUNDAY, June 2nd at Harkness Memorial State Park in Waterford, Connecticut. British By The Sea is not a Concours Event, but rather, it is a popular vote, fun Gathering. More than 350 vehicles are expected to be on display competing for prizes in 35 classes. Such famous British Marques as Aston Martin, MG, Triumph, Lotus, TVR, Riley, Rover, Morgan, Sunbeam, Austin Healey, Cooper, Rolls Royce and Jaguar, to name a few,  will be on display.

Our Marque Of The Year for the 2013 Gathering will be Aston Martin, to celebrate 100 years of production of these fabulous machines! We know there are plenty of Aston Martin Centenerary events to attend in 2013, like the Austrailia National Meet, the Aston Martin Factory Tours, the European Tours, New Zeland Centenary Tour etc., but what we are trying to accomplish is to give any Aston Martin owners in the North East an option to attend a popular vote, non Concours, fun event , which brings together all Marques of British cars, trucks and motorcycles and is only a short drive from any where in New England.
Entrants come from throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic states to take part in this popular show at the beautiful Harkness Memorial State Park, which is located on the north shore of Long Island Sound. Spectators are not charged admission to the Gathering, however, the Park will charge a Spectator parking fee.. The ample size of the display area allows for Auto products vendors to be located alongside the display vehicles on the field. British By The Sea is held “rain or shine.”

At the 2012 event, we had over 339 vehicles displayed in 35 Classes, with etched glass mugs being awarded for first, second and third place in each class. We do have food vendors at the event, but we also encourage you to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy by your car or go for a relaxing walk on the beach. You can also tour the Mansion Eolia, and enjoy the gardens that were originally designed by Beatrix Ferrand. For the past 18 years, the CT MG Club has been providing a yearly monetary donation as well as “People Power” to plant the gardens, bringing them back to their original grandeur.
If you wish to attend, you may request additional information and registration materials from the show’s co-chairpersons, Annie and Steve Wincze via email at: MGTD52@comcast.net, or via phone at ( 693-4249. Club web site http://www.ctmgclub.com
