The annual MCC Dinner 110 years ago was held at The Trocadero Hotel. The occasion involved entertainment by way of professional singers, amusing recitals, speeches, and toasts. Three toasts to be exact but these were spread throughout a gastronomic marathon. The President in 1913 was one of Britain's two famous racing drivers, Charles Jarrott. Mr. Jarrott was the club's second choice with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle having turned down the position. Our first President was Selwyn Edge who is well known for piloting the Napier cars with great success. One hundred and ten years later our Club is doing well, there is no singing at the Awards Dinner, the Trocadero Hotel closed in 1965, and the current President drives a car made in Japan.
