|Sunday, 10||Drive Your Triumph Day||9:00 am|
The concept is straightforward. On February 10th - Sir John Black's Birthday - go for a drive in your Triumph. Take a scenic drive on a country road or out to lunch, to the market, to work, where ever. Go for a drive alone or in a big group from your local Triumph Club. Take your spouse, buddy, child, grandchild or your dog; then take a photo. The photo is mainly of the car, and the owner if possible, ideally in front a cool spot, landmark, scenic view or in your driveway. If it’s the middle of the winter where you live and your car is in hibernation, or in the middle of a restoration, take a photo of it anyway.
Next step is to email a high-resolution photo to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with some basic information: owner’s name, year and model of car, and place photo was taken (city, state, country). The photos will then be published not only in our club newsletter, but also in USA’s national magazine: Vintage Triumph Registry, and on the Drive Your Triumph Day website: https://driveyourtriumphday.shutterfly.com
This year February 10th falls on a Sunday, so lets make this a big worldwide event with club drives and lots of photos. Remember, it’s a new photo taken on February 10th, 2019.
Regards, Rye Livingston, Activities Chairman, Triumph Travelers Sports Car Club
