REGISTRATION

May 9th, 2018. Submitted by Ian Rigby.

Sands of time are fast flowing.

There are only 2 more opportunities left at the club meetings to be up to date.

Please help us help you!

Our inspectors will be swamped if you wait for the last meeting with 2 away in June the level of effort on Colin will be substantial and he may not have time to complete everyone that turn up hoping to get signed off and payments made.

There are around 100 members that have yet to pay and have details updated. If you make other arrangements with the team over the next few months then that may also help.

Kind regards

Ian Rigby

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.

Regards

Welcome 2018 TSOA

January 10th, 2018. Submitted by Ian Rigby.

Happy new year to all our TSOA members. Welcome to 2018 and hopefully a safe year for all. 2018 starts off with the first club meeting for the year Tuesday 16th and is a general informal meeting. Each year we do something a little different so this year I would like to suggest we have a “Something of Interest Night” Nothing too far out there but if you are coming and think you have something of interest to share then bring it along for all to have a look and enjoy. 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. Meet at K-Mart car park Anzac Highway Kurralta Park at 7.45 (pm). Best regards to all. Ian Rigby

ALL BRITISH DAY 2018 – BRIEF UPDATE

December 4th, 2017. Submitted by Roger.

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.

Geoff Ellis
