To the Faithful,
We are happy to announce the new dates for the GoF West 2020, now called GoF West 2020+1. Please join us on July 26, 2021 through July 30 at Mt. Hood Oregon Resort. We will retain your registration on the new dates unless you email us that you cannot join us then. In that case, you will receive a full refund. New registrations after today will be $55, a modest increase to cover our known increased costs. The good news is that your registration remains at the 2020 rate of $45.
If you have a reservation for this year at the Resort, please call them to move your reservation to the new dates. The room rates remain the same!
If you have paid for meals and regalia, you will automatically be refunded that amount. At this point we cannot guarantee that our costs will remain the same. We will have a new order form for meals and regalia in the spring of 2021. We are working hard to keep the cost of coming to a GoF West affordable for all.
We are all looking forward to driving our cars and seeing all our friends, old and new. Until July 2021, please stay healthy and be safe.

Please join us for GoF West 2021 on the shoulders of Mount Hood in Oregon, Dates July 26, 2021 through July 30.
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 2021 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 2021.
