2016 Day of Triumph

August 17th, 2016. Submitted by Ian Rigby.

It’s on again!  The TSOA annual DAY OF TRIUMPH.

This year’s event will once again be at Wigley Reserve GLENELG on SUNDAY 9th of October

Cars need to be in place early preferably by 9.30am and can’t be removed until the end of the event for safety reasons. Gates open around 8.30 am Judging will start at 10am. Miss the start and you miss being judged.

Last year was a great success and the majority of entrants expressed that they would like to return to Glenelg so the day has been set.
Entry is via the roundabout at the end of Anzac Highway.

The rules and scoring are the same as prior years and it will be the point score that wins you the trophy. The car needs to support the class and score ranking it has been entered into.

I will need a lot of help from several people that have an eye for detail on the day, especially Concours. Over the years there have been willing helpers and without their help it would be a difficult task so thank you and I look forward to the continued support.

In the event of a tie, for any category, I will ask several of the more knowledgeable in the group to cast their eye over the cars to come up with the ultimate winner. The decision will be based on an agreed approach that would be generally around overall presentation and as close to original as possible for Concours.

Good news at the August meeting for those that could not attend! The Club Inspectors for Historic Registration WILL be there on the day so bring your log book and documentation – as per last year there will be an identifier on your screen for them to look for. Please make yourself available when they get to your car.

Unfortunately “The Coffee Run” have pulled out at the last minute as he did not want to renew his license for the area. Luckily the vendor from last year “Coffee and Creams” contacted me again recently after seeing the advert on the council page but i had already accepted The coffee run. I had tried to alternate to a different supplier this year for a different range of food but sadly this has not worked for us. On Short notice I’m happy to report that Coffee and Creams will be renewing his license and he was able to help again. So we have coffee and the similar range of food from last years event. Lets hope that the weather is kind to us and we have another good year. Im working on a different solution for next year so lets see how THAT GOES.

Please join me on the day.
