Socially Speaking – March 2014

42 Vehicles were registered by the TSOA members at the All British Day on the 9th February, making us the 4th largest club display on the day.  Add on 4 entries from the TR Register and 8 from the Stag Owners Association – the Triumph marque was well represented. Extremely lucky with the weather on the day forecasted at 35 degrees as the day before was 42 degrees with catastrophic fire warnings and a large fire at Crafers and 40 degrees on the day following the event. (It was hot work marking out the ovals on the day before the event – I’ll tell you!)  850 cars and motor bikes were entered but the public attendance fell short on the day which the organising committee feels was due to the hot weather conditions, and will result in a financial loss for this year’s event. However we do feel some good gains were made in the overall management of the event.

Over 60 people attended our February General meeting with lots of new faces which is great.  Let’s all ensure our newer members are made to feel welcome. The GT40 kit car owned by Bill Jones certainly created a lot of interest.

Margie and I travelled to the Copper Coast last weekend (22nd and 23rd February) to plan this year’s Club Weekender. We ended up with what we feel is a great program, food and accommodation. Twenty Motel rooms have been booked (maximum) so get your application in early to avoid disappointment. Extra rooms will need to be off site. We have again done some great deals with the smaller locals and at $110.00 per person (plus the club subsidy of $20.00) the weekend represents great value.

Ian Rigby and Bob Cini have put together March and April club runs.  See flyers in this issue for all events.

Busy, busy, busy……………..

Till we meet again.

Bill Berlemon.
