GoF West 2020 is in Oregon

Bring an item for the auction – this is a great way to reuse and re purpose what you don’t want anymore. Your old stuff is someone else’s treasure!

Please join us for GoF West 2020 on the shoulders of Mount Hood in Oregon, June 29 to July 3. Registration is now open! [Click in the DOWNLOAD Button at the end of this page for The Registration Form].

There are three reasons why people come to the Gathering of the Faithful annual convention: 

To reconnect with friends and make new ones

To see the country where they may not have been before, or revisit favorite spots

To enjoy the fun and challenge of the convention’s events

The 2020 event will feature the usual activities, and a few new ones. 

Of course, there is a car show to display your pride and joy (or work in progress). We are fortunate to have the car show on the beautiful lawns adjacent to the golf course. 

The funkhana is a contest of precision driving in a parking lot with silly challenges thrown in. How can it be anything but FUN – it’s in the name! Hilarious to run, and hilarious to watch! 

There will be a gimmick rally in which you tour the countryside looking for answers to questions. You can win a trophy.

Our technical sessions will feature a cut-away engine, gearbox, and carburetor to show how they really work. There will be other sessions sure to pique the interest of the gear head.

Several non-car related activities will also be offered. These include a croquet tournament and a lawn bowling tournament on the competition-quality, laser leveled grounds for these sports. We will also make use the miniature golf course.

Bring your photos, arts, crafts, and models to display and win trophies! We love to see your handiwork.

We will have self-guided tours of the area that you can do in your spare time. See waterfalls, the historic Timberline Lodge, fruit trees, alpacas, and lavender in Hood River, a pub tour of craft beers and wineries in the Hood River Valley, or even a longer drive to see Mt. St. Helens.

Please come to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. The weather is sure to be mild; there is an abundance of trees, mountain views, and wildlife; and there are 3 golf courses on site. After the event, you can enjoy a little time at the ocean (beaches are only 2 hours away!) or the largest fireworks display east of the Mississippi in Vancouver Washington on the 4th.

Club T MG is your host for this event. We welcome you to Oregon. Join your friends in this reunion of sorts, and you will be sure to meet new MG enthusiasts from the more northern regions of the West. We welcome any model of MG from any year. We guarantee you will have a good time—there is something for everyone at GoF West 2020.
