The organisation committee was, prompt at 12 o'clock on the 21st, ready to welcome the participants and direct them to the coffee and cakes that were waiting for them on the roof patio.

About 17:30 the buses arrived to take us to the Bernauerstraße, for a guided walk through Prenzlauer Berg to the Road Runners Club where Bratwürste, Salads etc. were waiting for us.

On Friday around 10:30, we all met at the Avus-North-Curve, in preparation for the Korso through Berlin. The "weißen Mäuse" (police escort) were there, not in white but green (white is reserved for VIP's!). Thanks to the "Einsatzleiter" (the commander) we again had a foto stop on the Gendarmenmarkt. Then on to lunch in Meilenwerk. The weather was, apart from a few drops as we left the Gendarmenmarkt, so nice that we could all drive "topless".

Saturday was then the Rally, the start was from the Avus-North-Curve. Half the teams drove via Lichterfelde, Jühnsdorf, Saalow, Gadsdorf, Guterfelde, Grunewald back to Berlin to the finish at the nH Hotel. The other half drove in the reverse direction. At first the weather could have been better, but got better as the day progressed.
About 18:45 in the evening the buses arrived to take us to the Gala-Evenig with prize giving in the restaurant Osteria Maria. All in all a great end to a long day.

On Sunday, up again early, so that we had time for breakfast in Meilenwerk, before we left for the Bundespresseamt at about 10:30. 26 teams went on the trip. we were welcomed by Staatsminister Lorsch and taken on a tour through the offices, he also showed us the Information Centre wish is normally out of bounds for the public. The centre is where messages from Consulates all over the world are sorted and forwared as appropriate. We were expected and the deputy Staatssekretärs was waiting for us at the wrong entrance.
The oldest of 26 cars, the Dieter Wagners MG TC, was then presented on the stage where it was a big attraction for the visitors. Dieter Wagner then had to tell the public about the car.
It was a very interesting event.

On Monday, after a decent nights sleep, we were off again, this time to Gatow to have a look round the aircraft museum - no luck, on Mondays it's closed! Cecillienhof is not far, so off we went again. Unfortunately, Cecillienhof is also closed on Mondays, so after a coffee break we continued to Krongut Bornstedt. After parking the cars we then had lunch and talked about everything and ....

All participants were of one opinion (apart from a few minor complaints) - another very successful MG-Meeting
