President’s Thoughts for Jan / Feb 2011

January 31st, 2011. Submitted by webmaster.

Welcome to an exciting New year of TSOA events for 2011, once again the committee believe we have planned a great year of events and activities to satisfy and expand our active membership.

Furthermore this year again it is our privilege to host the Triumph National Rally, and some of our organising sub-committee have recently been away fine tuning the program. The event is planned over 7 nights commencing in Mt Gambier, and concluding in Victor Harbor with an option to tack a 1 or 2 day post rally tour to Kangaroo Island. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase our great state, renew past friendships, and make new friends with likeminded enthusiasts from interstate. I encourage you to consider participating in the whole Rally or take advantage of attending part of the event. Details on our website or for part Rally participation please contact Bob Farrell 8370 7210, but be quick.

The annual ICECREAM run is to be held on Sat 29th January commencing just off Greenhill road and cruising along the beaches from Glenelg to Semaphore, a great night run for all.

The annual ALL BRITISH DAY will be held on Sunday 13th February at the Uraidla Oval. If you have not booked your car into this fantastic day as a display vehicle, then make your way to the oval and enjoy the 875 British vehicles on display. This year we are located under theĀ  shade of the trees so an enjoyable picnic day is assured. A great lunch is available from the local CFS at a very reasonable cost, so just hop in your car and come on up.

The following week on Sunday 20th February we have another picnic day programmed to the Peter Lehmann winery Tanunda for the MSCA PRESENTATION DAY, we are meeting at the TTP car park for a leisurely run to the event, we look forward to seeing you there enjoying another fantastic day.

More details of the above events are available in the magazine on the promotion pages and the Event Calendar in the back.

Our informal general meeting held on January 18th at the Sporting Car Club rooms was well attended, and from the questions raised hopefully our technical presentation on brake lines and fittings was well received. Should you have any further questions or require a clearer explanation on any associated subject then feel free to contact me or catch up at a future event, and I will try answer them.

Watch the magazine promotions for future technical meetings and practical demonstrations we are planning for this year.

‘Til we meet again
