President’s Message – June 2021

Good day everyone and welcome to June!     Here’s hoping that the provincial restrictions will be relaxed sufficiently very soon so we can announce a few local drives.  Talking of which I am pleased to report that we have four teams ready to lead you on drives in different geographic areas across southern Ontario.  They...

President’s Message – May 2021

Good day everyone and welcome to May Day!    I’ve managed to get the TR250 out and about for a few drives since the roads became salt free which has been a wonderful release for both of us after the long winter.   I’ve also washed, polished and waxed ALL my cars so they are looking like...

President’s Message – April 2021

TTC Meeting – Turn Left at the Pacific – 19th January 2021

Over the past couple of weeks I have been chatting with Tony Fox and Terence McKillen about possible on-line meetings for our club.  They recommended a fellow Triumph aficionado – John Macartney – from the U.K. and I am delighted to report that John has agreed to present to us “Turn Left at the Pacific”. ...

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to everyone!  Hard to believe we are writing “2021” now.  It doesn’t seem that long ago to me when we were all panicking about the turn of the century and the Y2K concerns.  On New Year’s Eve 1999 I drove over to our computer centre and had the entire 401 to myself. ...
