Social Scene – August 2011

Thank you to all who have assisted during the past year be it organising runs, preparing supper, selling raffle tickets etc.   The job of Social Secretary is a lot easier when you have willing helpers.  If you would like to take on the position, please put your name forward as this position becomes vacant at the AGM on 16th August.

Thanks to Stephen for organising the mid week run on 6th July in, what can only be described as atrocious conditions.  Three brave people brought their Triumphs, the rest opting for the comfort of good demisters, windscreen wipers and a good heater.   The meeting place was Millies at Stirling for coffee then the run went for a distance of approx 75kms taking in Clarendon, Meadows, Macclesfield ending up at Grumphy’s at Hahndorf for wood oven pizzas.

Ian and Raelene’s run to Cafe Y at Chateau Yaldara Lyundoch on Sunday 24th July saw 11 Triumphs brought out in the very inclement weather.  A few other members came along in their normal cars.  We had a tour of the back streets of North Adelaide passing the sad TR6 (it has featured in TRak) parked on the side of the road before heading up Gorge Road to Cudlee Creek for a coffee stop.  The rain conditnued to fall as we made our way to Lyndoch and lunch at Cafe Y.   Thanks to Ian and Raelene for their efforts in organising the run.

The next ladies technical session is on Tuesday 9th August at Cafe Buongiorno Mitcham and we would love to see you there for a chat and a bite to eat and, of course, a little technical discussion.

The run on Sunday 21st August is heading south to Willunga for coffee (the swap meet is on if anyone wants to go early and meet up afterwards) then heading down to Middleton Tavern for lunch.

Don’t forget to put Sunday 11th September in your diary for the Day of Triumph at Civic Park opposite TTP.  This is a major event in the Club’s year so let’s see a record number of Triumphs on display, even if you don’t want your car to be judged bring it along and put it on show.

The other major event is the Christmas Dinner and Trophy Presentation on Saturday 10th December at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club.  The 3 course meal with choice is very good value.   Details will be in TRak.
