Jem Marsh 1930-2015
It is with great sadness that the Club announces the death of Jem Marsh on Monday 2nd March
2015. Jem died peacefully in the care home
where he has been well looked after in recent months.
Jem was co-founder of Marcos and Honorary President of CMI and
will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
The purpose of the Club is to provide a social network for members to share their
enthusiasm for the Marcos marque, and for those fortunate enough to own a Marcos
to make ownership even more enjoyable. However, you definitely do not need
to own a Marcos to enjoy the benefits of membership.
The quarterly magazine keeps members informed of the many Club activities and members
are encouraged to contribute any article of technical or general interest for publication,
or simply a favourite photograph of their car. The magazine also lists 'For
Sale' and 'Wanted' advertisments, together with a limited number of commercial adverts
of interest to members.
Social activities are included in a full calendar of events suitable for all the
family. These range from lunch time and evening pub meetings, to skittles
evenings, to local shows (where members can show off their cars!), or just to meet
up with other enthusiasts. There are also Club entries at the many national
and regional car events throughout the UK.
The Club holds an Annual International Rally and Concours d'Elegance competition
over a summer weekend. The Rally weekend is usually arranged around a race
meeting at a UK circuit. The Concours d'Elegance on the Saturday allows members
to show off their own cars and marvel at others! Dinner on the Saturday evening provides
an opportunity to make new friends and meet old acquaintances while on the Sunday we
usually converge at a race meeting, with plenty of time to chat and compare notes on
each other's cars.
However, it is not just the pampered cars that win the trophies - there are prizes
for the best engineering modification and an originality prize for pre-1972 cars.
The Club offers a wide range of mail order regalia, including sweatshirts, polo
shirts, T-shirts, baseball caps etc., all with a choice of the Club or the Marcos
logo. We also stock Marcos books, various Marcos models, magazine binders, boot and
bonnet badges, key-rings, road wheel centres, tax disc holders, etc. See the Regalia
page for details.
We advertise a variety of insurance companies whose financial contribution to Club
funds means more scope for continuing improvement to member services.
Manangement of the Club is undertaken by an unpaid volunteer committee, elected
by the members - details of the current committee is available in the Committee section.
As a Club we work closely with Marcos Heritage to offer you the services to help
you keep your Marcos on the road, advise on future purchases and generally encourage
and support Marcos enthusiasts everwhere.
We hope there is something of interest to everyone.
Membership is open to everyone, whether you own a Marcos or not. The annual
subscription is £20. To join download the Application Form, complete it and
send it to the Membership Secretary (address on the Application Form).
From May 2005 the annual subscription renewal date for all new members is 1st October.
Those members joining part way through a year will be compensated by receiving a
year's worth of magazines.
