REGISTRATION

May 9th, 2018. Submitted by Ian Rigby.

Sands of time are fast flowing.

There are only 2 more opportunities left at the club meetings to be up to date.

Please help us help you!

Our inspectors will be swamped if you wait for the last meeting with 2 away in June the level of effort on Colin will be substantial and he may not have time to complete everyone that turn up hoping to get signed off and payments made.

There are around 100 members that have yet to pay and have details updated. If you make other arrangements with the team over the next few months then that may also help.

Kind regards

Ian Rigby

All British day 2018

February 14th, 2018. Submitted by Ian Rigby.

Great event this year and thankfully the temperature dropped to a manageable level. This year we had our new display cover and flags raised. WE had 38 Triumphs on display this year so a good turn out for us. We had a great selection of cars on display but More in Trak on that as this is just a quick note to present some of the pictures. Note Bill’s Photo Bomb in the background of the display pic. Big thank you to our club ABD Rep. Geoff Ellis Great work and also to Kate Berlemon My Flag Marshal assistant.

Welcome 2018 TSOA

January 10th, 2018. Submitted by Ian Rigby.

Happy new year to all our TSOA members. Welcome to 2018 and hopefully a safe year for all. 2018 starts off with the first club meeting for the year Tuesday 16th and is a general informal meeting. Each year we do something a little different so this year I would like to suggest we have a “Something of Interest Night” Nothing too far out there but if you are coming and think you have something of interest to share then bring it along for all to have a look and enjoy. Bill Berlemon has a special guest and I have a new club addition to share. Hope to see you all there but if not then maybe on the first run for the year.January 27th is our usual Ice Cream run. Meet at K-Mart car park Anzac Highway Kurralta Park at 7.45 (pm). Best regards to all. Ian Rigby

ALL BRITISH DAY 2018 – BRIEF UPDATE

December 4th, 2017. Submitted by Roger.

The organising committee for the 2018 All British Day event at Echunga Oval on the 11th February 2018 is pleased to announce it has received 847 registrations to display vehicles on the day.   This compares very favorably to 745 for the 2017 event.

It was pleasing to receive 65% (553) of registrations electronically via the new ABD website and the balance 35% (294) by paper/postal registration.  Hopefully as entrants become more familiar with the new ABD website www.allbritishday.com the percentage of electronic registrations will increase, resulting in cost and time savings in the administration of the event thus allowing the organising committee to apply funds to further improve the event.

For 2018 the event has attracted new sponsors as well as the continued support from its long term valued sponsors.  I would encourage everyone to take a few minutes on the day to walk around the ovals to check out the sponsors/trade exhibitors and support them where you can.

History has shown that when entrant vehicle registrations are on the rise so is public support and attendance for the event.  Consequently we are anticipating strong public support to help create a successful event for 2018.

For those in the TRiumph Sports Owners club that have registered or are otherwise supporting the event, on behalf of the organising committee, we look forward to seeing you on the day and thank you for your support of the event.

Royal Adelaide Golf Club, Tapleys Hill Road, Seaton.

This is a great venue for our end of year celebration and the catering is first class – just ask anyone who has been to one of the Christmas dinners at this venue . . . excellent menu, reasonably priced drinks, beautifully decorated and safe parking on site. What more could you want?!

Cost is $50 for members and $60 for non-Members.

Further info can be had from Sue Gibson on 8449 7814

Bookings with full payment by the November General Meeting – 21st November

Social Snapshot – November 2017

November 3rd, 2017. Submitted by Roger.

A big thank you to David & Yvonne Armstrong for hosting the mid week run in October at their home and for providing a lovely sausage sizzle/bbq lunch.   I am sure all the men would have had a good time looking at the collection of cars.   Thanks also to those who contributed to the lunch.    Unfortunately whilst the day started off okay weatherwise it deteriorated into heavy continuous rain.   Fourteen people braved the weather and Bill & Maggie Smith joined us for coffee at the Rezz.

Thanks to Bill & Chris Galler for putting together an interesting Observation Run which ended up at Lenswood.   There were two stops for questions/answers, the first at Uraidla and the second in Lenswood Recreation Park.   Thanks to Margie for transporting the BBQ and food and to all those who helped cook and prepare.    There were 20 members in attendance and the weather was ideal.   Our final destination was the Lenswood Memorial Park which had all the facilities we required.  There was a community event on in the park but we still had plenty of room.   Congratulations to Alex & Sue who came second and Pete Thornton who came in third without a navigator.   Rory & Sue won the event.

The Victorian National Committee certainly organised a full and busy week in Wangaratta for this year’s National Meeting.  The countryside around Wangaratta is spectacular and we had some great drives.   The weather was very kind to us only raining a bit at night and on the day we left.   NSW won the Ironman competition this year.  

The next big event on the social calendar is the Day of Triumph, this year being held at Semaphore on the grass at the beach end of Semaphore Road.   Ian has arranged for the Cadillac Club to also be in attendance so it should be a good showing of cars.    However we don’t want to be outnumbered so please come along and join in the day even if you don’t want your car judged, put it on display.

The Christmas Dinner is fast approaching (Saturday 9th December) at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club and they have been celebrating their 125th year in 2017 with many international events being held.    Please make your payments by the November meeting and we hope to see a good number of members in attendance.   The food and service is always excellent and I am sure this year will be no different.   At $50 for members and $64 for non members it is certainly good value for a 3 course meal with a choice of entree and main courses.  

The Annual After Christmas Run is heading down south this year and is on Friday 29th December (see advert).   It will be a reasonably short run with lunch at a venue we have not been to for many years (if at all).    Hope to see a good number of members come along for the drive.

The 2018 calendar has been drafted and we are always looking for different people to organise a Sunday run.    Please contact either Peggy or Sue to put your name against a month.   Of course we start off in January with the Ice Cream Run which always proves popular, then All British Day in February so the first two months are already taken care of.

 

Cheers Peggy-Sue
