President’s Report July 2019

Sometimes we get messages through from interstate that are sad in content and this month we were told of NSW member Warren Carter’s passing. Our thoughts go out to his family and certainly all who knew Warren from close friendship and National meetings where Warren played a part in keeping a morning team of enthusiastic walkers active, he will be missed. We also had some sad news for a few members in our club having their own family loss. Out of respect I will hold off noting their names in this report but like to pass on our thoughts to them also.

With the AGM creeping up on us I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have helped in any capacity over the past year. Their continued support helps to keep the club electronically up to date, financial, on track historically speaking, fed and entertained at the meetings as well as supported on and off the race track.

It’s a timely reminder that the next club meeting could have new leaders and helpers so just in case I wish the incoming team all the best for the next year. Looking forward to seeing a good turnout for the nights event and voting.

The time has passed for all members to be financial if they are on Club Registration and the team responsible for keeping this data up to date have certainly been busy stuck in spread sheets, on the phone and chasing those that we hoped to protect from failing the log book test. I now have my Rubber stamp so happy to help where and when needed.

The club breakfast run this month had a healthy turn out with 31 people joining in and enjoying a breakfast while catching up with some new faces and interstate guests. Great to see them enjoy the run with us. B Social was a great statement for a venue and we were.

We have gained several new members this year bringing even more Triumphs to the stable so a big welcome to them and thank you for joining us. Unfortunately we also say goodbye to some long time members who have moved on due to selling their cars or for other reasons, so wishing them well and maybe we will see them if they see us parked one day.

The next few months will see some significant events both around the state, Country and on the track . . .

Paech farm for next month’s run should be a good day and with a Club subsidised lunch.

The All Triumph Observation run in September (Club Sponsored BBQ) is always a good event and we would like to see lots of Triumphs on the day. Even if you choose not to go for gold (and the coveted Trophy) its always a great day to blow the cobwebs of the car.

The following weekend TSOA is at Mallala for MSCA Super sprint and the battle of the V8s continues!

We have a good team of Triumphs heading over to The WA Nationals and we wish them a safe journey.

The annual display day will be the follow up the next month out at Modbury leading into the end of year presentation dinner end of November. (New event location this year)

Kind Regards
Ian Rigby
President.

President’s Report – June 2019

July 2nd, 2019. Submitted by Roger.

Thank you to those who helped support the club during my leave of absence in May. It’s generally going pretty good but I would like to remind everyone again that the date for club membership is almost over and you need to get your log books updated and Membership paid as this is required to keep your car on the historic register. Fees must be paid and Logbooks updated for the 2019-2020 Club Year by 30 June 2019. If this is not done and the owner is detected driving the vehicle after 1 July 2019, the vehicle is deemed to be unregistered and uninsured. Prosecution is the likely outcome as the conditions of having a vehicle on the “Concessional Club Registration Scheme” have not been met. We are still looking for someone to take on Kevin’s role. If you are interested we are happy to have names put forward and I’m sure Kevin, Colin or Stuart will assist settling in. Have a chat when you are getting the paper work signed this year. As noted at this month’s meeting I will be caretaker for now to ensure we comply with government requirements. Socially Speaking: The Bend run this month turned out to be a great event.

The weather wasn’t too cold for us stuck out in the background waving flags and I believe that we had a good turnout of those that did the run so thankyou to them for supporting the day and sorry I didn’t get time to catch up. Both Duane and Neil had a great run with good results.

I had a quick chat with Bill and Margie at this month’s meeting and thanked them for the May Weekender and was informed that it went very well. I didn’t expect anything different as they always put a great run together.

Take a look at the club page for upcoming events. Just as an FYI here is the next run. Winter Breakfast Run Meet 8.30am Burnside Town Hall Sunday 21st July Breakfast at B. Social 246 Fosters Road Oakden at 9.30am Come and enjoy a short run through a couple of new suburbs before Breakfast or join us at B. Social. Details: Margie / Bill 0438836837

CLUB REGISTRATION REMINDER

Club (Concessional) Registration Logbook Usage Tips

Below are a few pointers on completing and keeping your Club Vehicle Logbook up to date, as it is a Legal Document and subject to audit by SA Police and the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI).

1. Driver must date, sign the Logbook before Journey commences with a brief description of the travel (e.g. City, Suburbs or Barossa Valley) and carry the Logbook in the vehicle for that journey.

2. If the logbook is not signed for that day of use and the driver is stopped by a Police Officer then the vehicle is deemed to be unregistered and uninsured as the conditions of Club Registration have not been met. The driver may be prosecuted.

3. The same applies if the vehicle is involved in an accident, meaning as it is unregistered and Insurance Companies will most likely refuse coverage. Could be very expensive.

4. If a change of driver occurs, then each driver is to make an entry and sign the logbook for that day of use, same details but next line in the logbook. Note: This includes any person taking the Club Registered vehicle for a test run when in for service or repairs.

5. One entry required for each calendar day. (Midnight to Midnight represents a day).

6. Do not miss any lines, all entries in the Logbook to be consecutive.

7. Sign Logbook only in ink, NO pencil entries allowed.

8. Vehicle can be driven for 90 days a year only, and it does not matter how many drivers sign the logbook.

9. The owner does not need to be with the vehicle at the time of use. Remember the driver must sign Logbook.

10. If the Logbook is lost TSOA must be notified as a replacement can be arranged.

11. Should you change your Registration Number TSOA must be notified so records can amended.

12. It is the owner’s responsibility to enter and update the Registration commencement and expiry details.

13. If owner fails to renew their Club membership the vehicle must not be driven as it is deemed to be unregistered and uninsured, as the conditions of Club Registration have not been met. TSOA is required to notify DPTI. The Logbook cannot be updated.

14. To maintain compliance with the Club Registration Scheme, the Logbook must be updated by the 1st July as this is the commencement of the Club financial year (details on how to carry out this update will be published in the TSOA Track Magazine). If not updated, the vehicle must not be driven as it is deemed to be unregistered and uninsured and TSOA is required to notify DPTI.

15. If the Club Registered Vehicle is sold. The owner must cancel the Club Registration immediately, as the Club Registration is non transferable. The Logbook must be returned to the Club of Issue for cancellation. Once cancelled, the Logbook will be returned to the owner and they are required to keep this Logbook for up to 2 months after cancellation in case it is required to be inspected by a Police Officer.

16. If the owner of the Club Registered Vehicle resigns from TSOA, cancels the Registration or reverts to full Registration, the Logbook must also be returned to the TSOA for cancellation.

17. Should the sole owner of the Club Vehicle become deceased, the vehicle must not be driven as once that person has died, the vehicle is deemed to be unregistered and uninsured, by DPTI.

18. Should the Vehicle be in Joint names and one owner dies, then a person is recorded as deceased and this will prevent the registration being renewed again. There is a process in place which does an automatic transfer from joint to single names where deceased is recorded but this doesn’t work for conditionally registered vehicles.

19. Should the vehicle owner change Club Registration to a different Authorised Club, the Logbook must be returned to the issuing club for cancellation, before the new club can issue a Logbook. Club Concessional Registration and Logbook issue is specific to a Club.
