Saturday, 10Drive Your Triumph Day (or send a photo of your stored car)

Last year I reached out to as many Triumph Clubs as I could find around the world, encouraging everyone to celebrate Sir John Black’s Birthday on February 10th, the man who bought Standard/Triumph after WWII and built many of the Triumphs we enjoy today.  I received a great response with close to 150 photos sent to me from all over the world: Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Finland, UK, across the USA and more.

It’s that time again to send out my request so it can be published on club websites, calendars and newsletters.  The concept is to go for a drive in your Triumph: on a country road, out to lunch, to the market, to work, where ever. Go for a drive alone or with a bunch of fellow Triumph Club members. Take a spouse, buddy, child, grandchild or dog. Go for a drive and then take a photo. The photo is mainly of the car, ideally in a cool spot or in front of a landmark, also in front of a market, hardware store or workplace is all-good.  Then send me the photo with basic info: name and place photo was taken and the year & model of the car. Remember, this is a photo taken on February 10th.

Last year I posted all the photos online, https://ttscc.shutterfly.com/pictures/3178, and a large selection were published in the US national magazine of the Vintage Triumph Register, https://vintagetriumphregister.org   If you live in part of the world where your car is stored for the winter, or your car is in restoration, you can still participate. Take a photo of the car in the garage and send it in.  I've set up a special email address to send photos (see the below e-mail).

Tuesday, 27Club Meeting - Lant Insurance7:00 pm

Club night at Streetsville Legion, 101 Church St. Mississauga ON L5M 1M6.   Mike Wilson, one of our longtime sponsors from Lant Insurance, will be on hand to tell us about the latest developments in classic car insurance.  For vehicles to qualify on Lant’s classic car insurance plan they must be at least 15 years old (2003). However they do have a program for Special Interest & Exotic Vehicles which are 0-14 years in age … so if you are contemplating buying that F-Type Jag you should be chatting with Mike.   Mike will answer questions after his presentation and after we discuss some club matters you can enjoy a bite to eat paid for by the club.  Look forward to seeing a good turnout.

Sunday, 19Brits-on-the-Lake, Port Perry, Ontario9:00 am
The tenth annual Festival will start things off on Saturday with a motoring tour of the idyllic Lake Scugog countryside, motoring through hamlets and villages followed by a noggin in Port Perry. Sunday, all of the cars and entrants will be out in their finest on Queen Street in historic Downtown Port Perry for the all-British Car show with Peoples' Choice Judging in 26 different Classes. 
 
No prior booking is required and displaying your vehicle really couldn't be easier. You can simply show up and REGISTER at the gate then find a place to park in the show area.  Just $25 for cars and $20 for motorcycles.   However, pre-registration for a discounted fee is available starting at $18 for cars and $15 for motorcycles.  Pre-registering your car or motorcycle saves you money and it significantly reduces the amount of administrative work that we must do on the day of the show, which is quite considerable.  And since pre-registering assists us to prepare in advance, when you do arrive at the event, you'll be whisked right into the show with no wait at all.  So, please consider pre-registering (see below link)..
