President’s Report July 2019

President’s Report July 2019

Sometimes we get messages through from interstate that are sad in content and this month we were told of NSW member Warren Carter’s passing. Our thoughts go out to his family and certainly all who knew Warren from close friendship and National meetings where Warren played a part in keeping a morning team of enthusiastic walkers active, he will be missed. We also had some sad news for a few members in our club having their own family loss. Out of respect I will hold off noting their names in this report but like to pass on our thoughts to them also.

With the AGM creeping up on us I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have helped in any capacity over the past year. Their continued support helps to keep the club electronically up to date, financial, on track historically speaking, fed and entertained at the meetings as well as supported on and off the race track.

It’s a timely reminder that the next club meeting could have new leaders and helpers so just in case I wish the incoming team all the best for the next year. Looking forward to seeing a good turnout for the nights event and voting.

The time has passed for all members to be financial if they are on Club Registration and the team responsible for keeping this data up to date have certainly been busy stuck in spread sheets, on the phone and chasing those that we hoped to protect from failing the log book test. I now have my Rubber stamp so happy to help where and when needed.

The club breakfast run this month had a healthy turn out with 31 people joining in and enjoying a breakfast while catching up with some new faces and interstate guests. Great to see them enjoy the run with us. B Social was a great statement for a venue and we were.

We have gained several new members this year bringing even more Triumphs to the stable so a big welcome to them and thank you for joining us. Unfortunately we also say goodbye to some long time members who have moved on due to selling their cars or for other reasons, so wishing them well and maybe we will see them if they see us parked one day.

The next few months will see some significant events both around the state, Country and on the track . . .

Paech farm for next month’s run should be a good day and with a Club subsidised lunch.

The All Triumph Observation run in September (Club Sponsored BBQ) is always a good event and we would like to see lots of Triumphs on the day. Even if you choose not to go for gold (and the coveted Trophy) its always a great day to blow the cobwebs of the car.

The following weekend TSOA is at Mallala for MSCA Super sprint and the battle of the V8s continues!

We have a good team of Triumphs heading over to The WA Nationals and we wish them a safe journey.

The annual display day will be the follow up the next month out at Modbury leading into the end of year presentation dinner end of November. (New event location this year)

Kind Regards
Ian Rigby
President.

President’s Report – June 2019

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2019

Thank you to those who helped support the club during my leave of absence in May. It’s generally going pretty good but I would like to remind everyone again that the date for club membership is almost over and you need to get your log books updated and Membership paid as this is required to keep your car on the historic register. Fees must be paid and Logbooks updated for the 2019-2020 Club Year by 30 June 2019. If this is not done and the owner is detected driving the vehicle after 1 July 2019, the vehicle is deemed to be unregistered and uninsured. Prosecution is the likely outcome as the conditions of having a vehicle on the “Concessional Club Registration Scheme” have not been met. We are still looking for someone to take on Kevin’s role. If you are interested we are happy to have names put forward and I’m sure Kevin, Colin or Stuart will assist settling in. Have a chat when you are getting the paper work signed this year. As noted at this month’s meeting I will be caretaker for now to ensure we comply with government requirements. Socially Speaking: The Bend run this month turned out to be a great event.

The weather wasn’t too cold for us stuck out in the background waving flags and I believe that we had a good turnout of those that did the run so thankyou to them for supporting the day and sorry I didn’t get time to catch up. Both Duane and Neil had a great run with good results.

I had a quick chat with Bill and Margie at this month’s meeting and thanked them for the May Weekender and was informed that it went very well. I didn’t expect anything different as they always put a great run together.

Take a look at the club page for upcoming events. Just as an FYI here is the next run. Winter Breakfast Run Meet 8.30am Burnside Town Hall Sunday 21st July Breakfast at B. Social 246 Fosters Road Oakden at 9.30am Come and enjoy a short run through a couple of new suburbs before Breakfast or join us at B. Social. Details: Margie / Bill 0438836837

This year’s AGM to be held on the 20th August with all positions open so have a think about getting involved and support the club.

Best regards for now

Ian Rigby
