President Report AGM

President report
Wow what
a quick year .
The club continues to remain healthy and vibrant with money, events and members . Fine tuned improvement were made to fast track last year and the value of being a member was also well tuned with discounted events and no increase to subscription fees.
We have begun to celebrate our 50th Birthday this year with extra special events including a formal dinner. The dinner , a memorable weekender and the years events would not have happened without the effort of Bill Berlemon. Hence why he is the recipient of this year’s President’s Award.
At now 50 years old it would be easy to imagine not being successful with a marque out of production for over 30 years but we and our Triumph cars have thrived, not just here in SA, but worldwide.  I am sure like many older successful clubs before us with longer history and with the passion inside us all we will survive many more years to come.
Officially the year ended august 15. So if you have not renewed membership or had your rego papers stamped etc you cannot legally drive your car and again we will report non financial members to DPTI.
This scheme back bones the TSOA, with many non active members utilising it.  Although we never meet them here they are often the other Triumphs we see on the road. They love their classic car as much as many of us, they keep the club financial so tonight I say thanks to them.
But bigger thanks to everyone who puts not only renewal money but time and energy into the club and organises, attends and participates.
Next year will likely be a little different.  I am looking forward to more detail about the national meeting and hopefully a new triumph saloon in my collection. I won’t be standing again for president, so as I bow out a big thank you to all for your support in the near 3 years at the top,  and I wish the new committee the very best of success.
