Socially Speaking – October 2013

Saturday, September 28th, 2013

Spring glorious Spring. Nothing but Triumph’s on our Breakfast take 2 run – yes 17 out of 17 were glorious Triumphs out on a Spring run! Just wonderful to see a procession of our cars travelling through the hills.  Our Breakfast stop at Morialta Conservation Park was a lot of fun and thanks to Ian and Raelene Rigby for organising the run.

Bay to Birdwood cavalcade of cars will have been run by the time you receive this Trak – we hope all went well at out new observation site.

We hope all those attending the Queensland Nationals have a wonderful and safe event and come back with lots of stories to share with us all.

October 20th run to Roseworthy Agricultural Museum promises to be a great day. This date is their annual working display day featuring lots of the machines working that are otherwise only on static display.  These will include engines, machines, blacksmith, chaff cutter, and tractors on the field for a working display. BBQ lunch tea/coffee and cake are available for purchasing. Some homemade goodies – relishes, jams, sauces and plants also for sale.  Off site miniature train rides also available.

Day of Triumph – November 3rd at TTG Civic Park – gates open from 9.00am. We would like to see as many cars there as possible to make this our feature club day a great success. Dino Vitesse  Proprietor of Café Primo, Tee Tree Plaza, and TSOA member, has offered to provide Club members with a $5.00 Buffett Breakfast – between 9.00am and 11.30am.  This is a great offer from Dino and we hope many members will partake in this fantastic offer. It’s just a short walk across the road from the Civic Park – you could display your car and then cross the road for Breakfast! Please ensure you wear some form of club ID – name badge or regalia so Primo Staff are aware of who you are.

Mid week run on November 13th 10.00am Hazelwood Park Reserve.

All Triumph Rally on November 17th – Top of Taps 8.30am – should see the start of another keenly contested annual observation run. Alex and Sue Smithson will I am sure have set a challenging run to again to see who is the best in the club. A club sponsored BBQ lunch will be provided on the day – just bring your chairs, tables and drinks.

We finish off the year with our Annual Christmas dinner on Saturday December 7th at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club – registration forms were in September TRak and also in this issue. Please, please ,please ,book early to avoid our usual last minute panic. All bookings and monies need to be paid by the November meeting Tuesday 19th.

Birthday wishes to:

Dianne Falzon, Fay Esau, Cherie Lange, Dave Wilson, Peggy Argent, Lorraine Cini and me!

Till next time

Girl Torque – October 2013

Thanks to all the girls for providing the supper for the year…many hands make light work, and I appreciate your help.

Thanks also to everyone who supported Guides by buying their biscuits this year.

As Christmas is coming upon us sooner than we would like and many of us will start baking for the festive season, I thought I would share a really easy recipe with you all that one on my Guide Leaders shared:

Easy Chocolate Balls:
2 packets Tim Tams (can use Oreo biscuits instead)
1 can Condensed Milk
Place biscuits into blender, add condensed milk, mix
Take out of blender and roll into balls, add coconut to cover balls and place in fridge to set!


Don’t forget the ladies lunch on Tuesday 8th at Burnside for those not going to the Nationals!

Report – Not the Breakfast Run

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

Not the Breakfast run….

Well 17 Triumph’s arrived at Burnside Town Hall…yes 17 Triumph’s… (It’s the first time I can remember
ever having only Triumph’s on a run!) Waiting for instructions from Ian Rigby… as usual Ian had a great
run sheet…large font instructions and colored photo’s for intersections! So off we headed up the Freeway
to Crafers, then the back streets through Piccadilly, Ashton, Marble Hill and Montacute.

The roads twisted and turned but the scenery was fantastic, and the weather was great so no fog, or rain
(unlike the previous attempt for this event) for many people it was great to see the Marble Hill
Ruins..Although it was a fleeting visit, maybe next time our drivers might slow down enough for them to
look as well!

Down Montacute Road, to Stradbroke Road, and around the corner to Morialta Conservation Park where
parking was interesting, but in the end everyone parked and went into the park to set up their stoves to
cook Breakfast or Brunch!  A great venue and very popular, everyone had a good morning.  Thanks to Ian
and Raelene for setting such a beautiful run and a great park to complete the day!
