Socially Speaking April 2015

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Our Annual Breakfast Run on Sunday 19th April was at Birdwood Motor Museum – although only 13 cars attended, and three couples cooked Breakfast, (my BBQ won as Bob’s needed help to fire up!) and what a great time was had by all.  The Museum offers a fantastic display of cars, trucks, busses, motor bikes etc that is second to none. I am sure we will want to return again.

Our Annual Weekender starting on the 15th May is now well booked – plans are well advanced and I am sure we will all have a wonderful time as we always do.

June offers another Club run on the 21st to be set by Bob and Lorraine Cini followed by the 50th Anniversary Dinner on July 4th. I am sure this will be a tremendous event and look forward to your support. Please contact me with any suggestions of past members whom we should also be inviting. See flyer this Trak for information.

Till we meet again

Triumphs on Track

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

There were four Triumphs competing in the Regularity event at Mallala on 12th April – Neil Martin and our own el Presidente Duane Kaak in their TR7V8’s along with Geoff Burdon in his TR7 and Dennis McDeed (non-member) in a Mk II Saloon (fitted with a Leyland V8 engine).

All had fun, and the Triumph “wedges” looked and sounded great!



2015 Day of Triumph

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Its our 50th year so lets make it a good one. We have been officially accepted today by the Holdfast Bay council . . . well, at least I put my name on the line and signed off on the document.

This year we will be at Wigley Reserve Glenelg and display set up starts at 8.30 until official close at 3.30. I will be asking around for helpers once again but this year the trophy winners will not be announced until the report goes out that week. It will give us a bit more time and allow the judges to reflect and not be as rushed, we want this year to be as relaxed as possible. I hope to have our club inspectors there also so those that need their cars inspected for historic registration can have that done too. This years event is prior to the Nationals so we should all be polished ready for the trip.

So set the date Sunday the 25th October and have those Triumphs ready for what we expect to be a great day for the club and also a great close to the year with the Classic Adelaide the week before and the Nationals the week after. A bit of rest and then our annual club dinner, where those that were lucky enough will have their trophy presented.

For now happy Easter everyone and see you on the next run.

Best Regards, Ian Rigby
