Girl Torque – March 2009

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

The ladies technical luncheon in February, was well attended and we even discussed the up and coming TSOA Events!  We felt lucky so all went in for the Big Lottery that was happening in the evening, and trusted Peggy to purchase the winning ticket….well she bought a ticket and we won $13.25……not a fortune between six people but enough to reinvest in the Saturday night….well what can I say except we gave that money to the Lottery Commission!!  Better luck next time!!

The Victorian Fires are foremost on our minds, and our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go to the families who have lost their homes and livelihoods.  Nearly everyone knows someone who has been affected in this tragedy and as Australians we all do our bit to help out when we can – please God let the fires get under control soon so people can begin to rebuild their lives.

The next technical luncheon is Tuesday 10th March at 12.00noon at Café Buongiornoat Mitcham  – see you all there!

Twenty people braved the heat of 4th February for the mid week run to Old Noarlunga for lunch.  Unfortunately no-one took their Triumph due to the heat – all preferring to travel in air conditioned comfort.

All British Day was held at Uraidla Oval and TSOA had 42 cars entered.  The weather was pleasant and there were many cars to look at as well as the Uraidla market over the road.  Thanks to everyone who assisted on the day.

The MSCA presentation day was held on the lawns of Peter Lehman Winery in Tanunda and those who attended enjoyed a picnic atmosphere under the trees.  Unfortunately TSOA did not win the trophy for the best presentation.

This year’s weekender is again being arranged by Bill& Margie and is going to the mid north area where we are staying at Paxton Cottages in Burra.   Finer details are still being organised and details will be in future issues of TRAK.   The cost is $200 per couple.   Please note the date is now 30th/31st May due to the Regularity event being run on 17th May.  Please phone Margie to book your place on 0438 836837.

A note for the diary – Sunday June 21st will see a fund raiser for the SA Nationals in 2011 in the form of a Jazz Afternoon at the Sporting Car Club rooms.   Bob & Natalie are organising this event which will feature The Danny Hodgson Trio and Samantha.  Further details will be available in the near future.
