|Monday, 10||Drive Your Triumph Day||9:00 am|
Rye Livingston, Activities Chairman, Triumph Travelers Sports Car Club contacted me to advise that once again he is encouraging Triumph Clubs from around the world, 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. The concept is straightforward. On February 10th 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. 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.

|Saturday, 25||Drive to Legendary Motors, Halton Hills||9:00 am|
Barrie O'Rourke has arranged for us to visit Legendary Motors in Halton Hills for a tour of their premises. They are located at 8220 5th Line North, Halton Hills, L7G 4S6 and we will meet at a Tim's first to drive their. Our tentative schedule is as follows:
9:00 a.m. - Meet for a coffee at Tim's (probably in Oakville but we'll advise the exact location soon).
9:30 a.m. - Drive to Legendary Motors on the back roads.
10:30 a.m. - Tour of Legendary Motors (including front showroom and backroom facility which last about 75 minutes).
Following the tour we are thinking that it would be good to go to a local restaurant for lunch. We'll figure out the logistics and let you know. We've driven past Legendary Motors many times when heading out on drives but I've never been for a visit. Should be fun!
