SOCIAL SNAPSHOT

Many thanks to Sue and Rory for organising a great Observation Run and the food on 23rd September, finishing at McLaren Vale for a club sponsored BBQ lunch, and to Ian, our BBQ head chef of the day. It was a great drive and the countryside is lovely and green at this time of year with many of the dams full. It was lovely to see many Triumphs with the tops off in the beautiful spring weather. Also good to see a few young ones with us for the run. The run had three stops for questions, the first being at Meadows where we had a coffee and answers to find around the Mawson Café. Then on to Prospect Hill for more answer searching time, and final stop at McLaren Flat, moving on to the Bocce Club grounds for our lunch. Alex was a clear winner with Roger & Cherri second and Noel and Cindy taking out third place. Well done to all. This year we did things a little differently with announcing at the meeting on 18th September, that the winner will not have to set the run next year – we already have an undisclosed person who is happy to set next year’s run.

We have just had our last informal lunch for the year, which indicates it is not long to Christmas, just 90 days.

The DAY OF TRIUMPH is the next big thing on the calendar, SATURDAY October 20th, we are holding our day in conjunction with the TR REGISTER’S National Rally Show & Shine at Wigley Reserve Glenelg. We have heard that there are around 63 TR’S attending their National Rally. So come along & bring your Triumph, can we outdo the Register TR’S? Your car doesn’t have to be judged if you don’t want it to be it’s all about showing your Triumph. Yes it is on SATURDAY 20th OCTOBER .

November 18th will be an EMR Early Morning Run, beach side finishing near Blackwood for Coffee or if you prefer, Brunch with moderate prices. Meeting at Officeworks, 939 Marion Road, Mitchell Park at 8am. For more information contact Peg 0409 090 369

Christmas Dinner and Trophy Presentation on 1st December. Please book early, $45. Members, $60 Non members for a three course dinner at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club.

Thanks to Dianne and Fay for offering to do supper at the November meeting.

If anyone would like to set a run in the new year please contact us as we are working on the 2019 calendar.

Cheers Peggy-Sue

Evening Run – After the Day of Triumph

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018

I’m going to do this run whilst my Triumph is all shiny from the Day of Triumph and I have used a day in my logbook! All Triumphs are welcome.

THE SPRITE CLUB OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA CLASSIC SPORTS CAR CRUISE.

The Sprite Club of South Australia will be cruising again for the first time this season on the evening of Oct 20th  . As usual this is a low key short sharp and hopefully shiny evening to display sports cars. Gathering in the Target shopping centre car park on the corner of Tapleys hill Rd and Valetta Rd Kidman Park at 6:00 pm for a 6:30 departure. As usual we would like to be joined by any interested  sports car, clubman, etc drivers. We are not too fussy about what constitutes a classic sports car. The run will be of approximately 1 hour duration. Sun is scheduled to dip into the gulf of St Vincent at 7:33 on this day. The route will hopefully keep the glare behind us.

Depart the shopping centre car park in a southerly direction.

Follow Tapleys hill Rd to Sir Donald Bradman Rd and turn left.

Follow Sir Donald Bradman Rd to West Trc.  and turn left.

Drive along West Trc. Follow city ring route Park Trc. Hackney Rd. Dequetterville Trc.

Hard left turn at the Victoria round about onto Fullarton Rd.

Turn right onto the Parade. (We tend to attract a bit of attention here.)

Follow the Parade up to Glynburn Rd. and turn left.

Follow Glyburn Rd to K mart on your left hand side.

There will be a short presentation at K mart.

Route maps will be available at the departure point.

If the bureau predicts above 36 deg or more than a 20% chance of rain the Cruise will be postponed.

As would be expected everyone joining us take part entirely at their own risk and are responsible for the roadworthiness of their vehicle.

Further info on the evening contact Pat Miller 0421 289 706 email nanmiller@adam.com.au.

Social Snapshot – August 2018

SOCIAL SNAPSHOT

Thanks to those people who organised runs in July and August.   Unfortunately the mid week run in August was not well attended, which could have been due to the weather but thanks to Graham & Gwyn Jones for organising.

The August run to Gawler organised by Bill & Margie saw about 15 people enjoy lunch at Vadoulis’ Nursery.   The weather was good and it was a very pleasant run through the hills.   Thanks to the organisers.

The All Triumph Rally (Observation Run) is on Sunday 23rd September and we would love to see a good number of people come along.   Rory & Sue (being last year’s winners) are setting the route and questions,  and there is a club sponsored BBQ at the destination.    See advert for details.

The Day of Triumph this year is being held on Saturday 20th October in conjunction with the TR Register National Meeting.   It is being held at Wigley Reserve in Glenelg, let’s have a good showing of club cars at this event.

We are looking for someone to put their hand up to organise a run in November so if you have an idea of somewhere to go, could be an early morning run, lunch time run or even an afternoon run,  please contact Peggy or Sue if you can help out.

This year the Christmas Dinner is on Saturday 1st December at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club and will be our 10th year at this venue.    Once again it is a 3 course menu with share platters to the table for entree, a choice of main course, and a dessert.   The cost for members is only $45 and $60 for non members, which is excellent value.

Cheers Peggy-Sue

Great event this year and thankfully the temperature dropped to a manageable level. This year we had our new display cover and flags raised. WE had 38 Triumphs on display this year so a good turn out for us. We had a great selection of cars on display but More in Trak on that as this is just a quick note to present some of the pictures. Note Bill’s Photo Bomb in the background of the display pic. Big thank you to our club ABD Rep. Geoff Ellis Great work and also to Kate Berlemon My Flag Marshal assistant.

Bill Berlemon has a special guest and I have a new club addition to share. Hope to see you all there but if not then maybe on the first run for the year.January 27th is our usual Ice Cream run.

Social Snapshot – November 2017

Friday, November 3rd, 2017

A big thank you to David & Yvonne Armstrong for hosting the mid week run in October at their home and for providing a lovely sausage sizzle/bbq lunch.   I am sure all the men would have had a good time looking at the collection of cars.   Thanks also to those who contributed to the lunch.    Unfortunately whilst the day started off okay weatherwise it deteriorated into heavy continuous rain.   Fourteen people braved the weather and Bill & Maggie Smith joined us for coffee at the Rezz.

Thanks to Bill & Chris Galler for putting together an interesting Observation Run which ended up at Lenswood.   There were two stops for questions/answers, the first at Uraidla and the second in Lenswood Recreation Park.   Thanks to Margie for transporting the BBQ and food and to all those who helped cook and prepare.    There were 20 members in attendance and the weather was ideal.   Our final destination was the Lenswood Memorial Park which had all the facilities we required.  There was a community event on in the park but we still had plenty of room.   Congratulations to Alex & Sue who came second and Pete Thornton who came in third without a navigator.   Rory & Sue won the event.

The Victorian National Committee certainly organised a full and busy week in Wangaratta for this year’s National Meeting.  The countryside around Wangaratta is spectacular and we had some great drives.   The weather was very kind to us only raining a bit at night and on the day we left.   NSW won the Ironman competition this year.  

The next big event on the social calendar is the Day of Triumph, this year being held at Semaphore on the grass at the beach end of Semaphore Road.   Ian has arranged for the Cadillac Club to also be in attendance so it should be a good showing of cars.    However we don’t want to be outnumbered so please come along and join in the day even if you don’t want your car judged, put it on display.

The Christmas Dinner is fast approaching (Saturday 9th December) at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club and they have been celebrating their 125th year in 2017 with many international events being held.    Please make your payments by the November meeting and we hope to see a good number of members in attendance.   The food and service is always excellent and I am sure this year will be no different.   At $50 for members and $64 for non members it is certainly good value for a 3 course meal with a choice of entree and main courses.  

The Annual After Christmas Run is heading down south this year and is on Friday 29th December (see advert).   It will be a reasonably short run with lunch at a venue we have not been to for many years (if at all).    Hope to see a good number of members come along for the drive.

The 2018 calendar has been drafted and we are always looking for different people to organise a Sunday run.    Please contact either Peggy or Sue to put your name against a month.   Of course we start off in January with the Ice Cream Run which always proves popular, then All British Day in February so the first two months are already taken care of.

 

Cheers Peggy-Sue
