ALL BRITISH DAY 2018 – BRIEF UPDATE

Monday, December 4th, 2017

The organising committee for the 2018 All British Day event at Echunga Oval on the 11th February 2018 is pleased to announce it has received 847 registrations to display vehicles on the day.   This compares very favorably to 745 for the 2017 event.

It was pleasing to receive 65% (553) of registrations electronically via the new ABD website and the balance 35% (294) by paper/postal registration.  Hopefully as entrants become more familiar with the new ABD website www.allbritishday.com the percentage of electronic registrations will increase, resulting in cost and time savings in the administration of the event thus allowing the organising committee to apply funds to further improve the event.

For 2018 the event has attracted new sponsors as well as the continued support from its long term valued sponsors.  I would encourage everyone to take a few minutes on the day to walk around the ovals to check out the sponsors/trade exhibitors and support them where you can.

History has shown that when entrant vehicle registrations are on the rise so is public support and attendance for the event.  Consequently we are anticipating strong public support to help create a successful event for 2018.

For those in the TRiumph Sports Owners club that have registered or are otherwise supporting the event, on behalf of the organising committee, we look forward to seeing you on the day and thank you for your support of the event.

ALL BRITISH DAY EVENT 2017 – REGISTRATION

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

ALL BRITISH DAY EVENT 2017 – REGISTRATION

I expect by now, those who have previously been involved in the All British Day event will have received communication from the President of the event, either by email or post, providing an update with regard to registration for the February, 2017 event.

Unfortunately our best attempts to make registration available electronically were thwarted by various issues.  Consequently it will be necessary for each entrant to lodge their Entry Form manually.

To lodge your Entry, whether you are a repeat attendee or new attendee, download the Entry Form from the website www.allbritishday.com, complete and return it to the postal address shown on the Form.  There are several alternatives for payment of fees for your entry but please ensure you clearly provide the requested information, particularly if you are paying electronically.

This year there is a strict close off date for Entries as printed on the Entry Form.  Please ensure you get your entry and payment in before 15th November, 2016 otherwise you could miss out!

This event like many similar events relies heavily on volunteers not only on the day of the event but also on the Saturday prior to the event to assist with setting up the grounds and immediately after the event on Sunday to assist with clearing the site.  If you can help in any way for any period of time your services would be most welcome.

Should you have any questions or are unable to download the Entry Form please contact me.

Emissions from the Crankcase

TSOA has been around since 1965 so we can’t ignore Case history. A great club.

So don’t fall asleep and out of your mag wheelchair.  Get set for a master blast from a past master.

Now as a reminder, there are some that have been, and some that have not been, and not all that could have been, indeed would have been, had  they not made a scene.

Some would have been if they could have been a little more keen but we definitely know that one HAS been, and what’s more that we’re sure always WILL be. That just happens to be the Case.

Some sleeping dogs lie, but I reckon it’s better they come clean and tell the truth, especially if they are barking up the wrong TRee. You know I won’t give up on you, so don’t give up on me you soothsayers and TSOAers and continue to follow me on Casebook: for my latest offering titled “The Adventures of Siddowne and Shuddarp”.

These were two fellows belonging to an historic car club, with Shuddarp being a person who apparently did not believe in Siddowne’s right to freedom of speech, which is odd really, as they had never met.

As ancient history reveals, Siddowne had been fast asleep for 28 years before he was woken up and awarded Life Membership, so Shuddarp thought, without thought, that Siddowne had gone back to sleep for the next 23 years and therefore mistakenly concluded was a ‘has been’ whereas Siddowne had proof that Shuddarp was a ‘never been’ so they begged to differ. Get it. Woof.

If after Siddowne had sat down and shut up, and Shuddarp had not stood up and shouted down Siddowne, then the differences in between would never have been.

The motto of this story is this. If you’re out of order then you’re not in place and you should have been and could have been if you had taken the time not to be seen as a has been, or actually should he mean evergreen?

If Shuddarp had been keen not to make a scene and come clean and was stood down, then in the history of the Club he would be the ONLY one as a has been, and most likely would again be never seen, and remain as a Life Member Could’ve  Been.

If Shuddarp only knew how lucky he was not to be known as Mister Been, and gone.

He may well too have been a has been if the Committee had been brought in to convene on the scene to intervene.

But Siddowne wasn’t keen to be mean. So, until next time I’m seen, kindly be seated and be quiet.
