September Report

Spring is here, and the Social Calendar is filling fast.

And so are the committee positions thankfully, with a new Secretary. Thank you and welcome to Dianne to the Executive Committee.  We are still seeking one more dedicated Triumph enthusiast to join the executive committee, as the “Competition Secretary”. No need to attend every race event, the reporting will be done by the racing guys who participated. However the committee needs someone to vote and assist with the administrative tasks that come with the club. The executive committee meets every few months, typically before the general meeting so you won’t have to lose any free nights on your calendar.

Speaking of Calendars, we are planning a 2015 TSOA SA Calendar. I have seen a few great photo submissions, there are still spaces, but get in fast if you would love to have a photo of your pride and joy considered. I am really looking forward to having one of these on my wall early next year. Email these through to Natalie Farrell.

We had some passionate discussion about our club communications at the general meeting, most members seem to feel the email newsletter doesn’t give them all they want? So this month as you read this email newsletter, make a note of what else you would like added and let us know how we can improve it. Several members advised they still like paper newsletters. Cost has never been an issue, sure these email ones are cheaper, but producing a lighter newsletter bi-monthly was intended to make the Editor’s position responsibilities lighter and just include the essentials. What other essentials are needed each month? The executive committee will consider your feedback and discuss this further so please pass it all to me for consideration so we can keep you all updated as you need!

Until then, this is the best of time of year to be driving your Triumph when the sun is shining to keep you warm enough to not freeze with the roof off or dodgy heater, but not too hot that your radiator boils at the stop lights! I hope to be spotting you all on runs soon.
