Social Scene – December 2011

The All Triumph Rally for the Tony Esau Memorial Trophy was held on 20th November.  The organisers, Bill & Margie, set questions in a number of locations and we were required to park the car and walk to find the answers.  As there was no obvious “coffee stop” along the route we did a big loop to Birdwood for those people who wanted morning tea.   It was an excellent run with a few curly questions and also a challenge to count and name the CFS stations (which were no more than 50m from the road) along the way.

The end point was a nice park at the top end of Hahndorf (Littlehampton) where we all enjoyed a club sponsored BBQ lunch, and waited with baited breath for the announcement of the winner.  To add a bit of interest, Bill decided he would have a separate competition for those members who were driving Non Triumphs.   Congratulations to Eva & David Treen for winning that section with runners up Peter and Natika and Dean and Tammy Berlemon.

The overall winner for the Tony Esau Trophy and the “honour” of setting next year’s event, was a very competitive Ian and Raelene Rigby, with second place going to Alex and Sue Smithson and third place to Peter and Julie Davidge.  Congratulations to all.

Huge thanks go to Bill and Margie for not only setting the route, but transporting the club BBQ and all the cooking utensils and food for lunch.  Also thanks to Peter and Dean for their help in cooking and serving up.

The Christmas Dinner on 10th December is the next TSOA event and once again it is being held at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club at 6.30pm for club sponsored “happy half hour” drinks with dinner starting at 7.00pm.   We hope to see all Trophy winners in attendance to accept their awards.

The annual after Christmas mid week run is being held on Wednesday 28th December.  The meeting place is Crafers Inn at 10.00am onwards for coffee, departing at 11.00am and heading south to Middleton Tavern for lunch.  All details are in the magazine and if anyone has any queries please contact Rory or myself.

Don’t forget there is no meeting in December with an informal meeting on Tuesday 17th January for the start of 2012.

I take this opportunity of wishing everyone and their families a safe and happy Festive Season and look forward to catching up in January.
