President’s Thoughts for November 2010

My thanks go out to Ian and Raelene Rigby for setting this year’s All Triumph Rally for the Tony Esau Memorial Trophy. The wet weather held off and we had a pleasant run through the Adelaide hills to Strathalbyn with a club sponsored BBQ for lunch. The lucky winners this year were Bill and Margie Berlemon who will set the challenge next year.

Ian and Raelene set a new standard in the presentation of the run sheet with colour photo’s and other helpful information to help us get through the event – well done.

The club Christmas Dinner and trophy presentation night will be held at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club, Tapleys Hill Road, Seaton on the 4th of December.  Please contact Sue Gibson on 8449 7814 if you intend coming but have yet to book.  Your reservation and full payment is required no later than our November 16th meeting or you will miss out on our final event for the year. The venue and the meal are tops and I encourage any member who has yet to book their place for this year’s dinner to do so soon.

Your committee is currently working on the event programme for year 2011 and this will include the normal once a month Sunday run and the occasional mid week run as we have traditionally done. Further to this we are proposing to put a plan in place to reintroduce a minimum of 3 Technical meetings during next year. These could include practical demonstrations of panel work, spray painting and other restoration type work that would be of interest to members working on their own restoration projects.

We are hoping that this type of activity would be held on week nights or on Saturdays, and we will advise in the club Magazine from time to time. We would hope this may encourage members who would not normally attend club functions to come along and learn from these sessions but more importantly meet club members who could also pass on some experiences from their restoration projects.

Hope to see you soon

John Sampson
