Social Scene – November 2010

The All Triumph Rally for the Tony Esau Memorial Trophy was held on 17th October in what could only be described as cool conditions.   The rain did hold off and the day ended up quite pleasant.  Ian Rigby (last year’s winner) set a good run through the hills ending up at Strathalbyn where the annual swap meet was also being held.  This gave members the chance to attend the swap meet before or after the club sponsored BBQ lunch.  Thanks to Margie for organising the meat and Peggy for the green salad, Raelene and Faye for supplying cakes and slices.  To all those people who assisted with the cooking and cleaning up thank you.

Congratulations to Margie and Bill who won the event and now have the honour of setting next year’s run.  It was a closely contested observation run with Team Temby coming in second and Roger and Cherrie taking our third place.

The next Sunday run is on 14th November and John requires numbers for the run to Greenock Aviation Museum where they will be putting on a BBQ lunch.  This run is being held in conjunction with the Austin Healey Sprite Club and the cars will be displayed on the lawns at the museum.  Numbers are required by 5th November so please give John a ring if intending to attend.

The Christmas Dinner is on 4th December and payment is required no later than the November meeting.  If you were a winner at the Day of Triumph please come along and collect your trophy and enjoy a three course Christmas dinner (menu is in TRAK) for the member’s price of $40ph and $55ph for non members.  The venue is the Royal Adelaide Golf Club at Seaton where there is plenty of secure parking.  There will be a happy “half hour” from 6.30pm to 7.00pm.

The annual after Christmas lunch run this year is heading to the Barossa and the Monkey Nut Bistro at Kies Winery in Lyndoch.  This run is always a popular event and we hope to see you in attendance.  Bill is the organiser.

Don’t forget there is no meeting in December and January is an informal meeting.
