President report                                                      April 2020

Not an interesting report this month with no meetings, no runs, or general outings that we can share.

The highlight this month apart from starting the log book renew process was to do a drive by at Sue and Rory’s place to congratulate Sue on a birthday milestone. No telling the age but certainly Skyhooks had a great song based on it. Bit of trivia to look up while you’re at home googling.

Social distancing at its best. Best wishes to Sue and anyone else that shared their birthday or special milestone with limited people.

We also received several interstate Trak type mail outs for us to share from Duane and the ones we received were certainly full of stories and pictures. I’m guessing that this will diminish next month seeing they had a more restrictive hold put on them than we have.

Alex has been very busy behind the scenes setting up and entering club documents to our Drop Box. This is another great way for us to communicate rather than e-mails and phone messages.

We have had a good take up to the reduced membership fees and log book renew process this year. It certainly has been interesting for me. Welcome to our new members and thanks for bringing along more Triumphs to the stable.

If you have not checked out our Web have a look. Roger has been busy in the shed and has put up a glimpse of his newly completed project. There are a few stories and comments and another post about repairs. Parts for sale and wanted is there and I have posted up some general items for sale with a collection of books and model cars for a member who wants to clean them out of her shed (not all pictures are up of the collection so give Valarie a call her number is on the add). I hope to have a story up for next month (just to spread it out a bit) on the Saloon. Not like some that have been forced into time out of work, I can’t get a home stay with what I do daily. The parts are on order finally so just waiting patiently for a plane from the UK.

Up to now no planning has been done for our normal display day later in the year or other major events. The normal booking process through whatever council can’t be done currently so if the state opens up late it may not be possible this year. Should things work out for the better and we still wish to run this event it may need to have a bit of out the box thinking due to timing. Knowing that we have limited numbers over the past few years and with people still being cautious I’m thinking it would be more impacted with a poor turn out so reluctantly it may be a year of rest but too early to tell at this stage.

I would like to present the following to help further with postage since we started this process there is a need to tweak it a little more. In general it’s worked ok but still postage is an issue with returning more than one book. So to help visually please follow this general rule. If you’re lucky enough to have a need for more than 4 books then you would need to do a combination of the below or see the post office for your best option. That’s the fortune and privilege of owning a stable full. One book only to a standard envelope.  (Both ways)

Oh and I have just been reminded that if you are filling documents in for your car log books they need to be referring your home address not a post office box or business please.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So unfortunately that’s it for this month.

Think we all hope the global issue is resolved enough to get us out a little bit more so for now stay safe.

Regards

Ian Rigby

President.
