Red River Triumph Club

Feb 2019 Presidents Report

Hello Red River Triumph Club,

It has been busy this month and will get busier next month as we approach the time our club will host the regional meet at Tanglewood. A well attended planning meeting was held at Tanglewood and progress was made. However, we will need to have some more volunteers for a few events.

We had a great turnout for the East Side breakfast gathering with 14 members attending and a few Triumphs announcing our presence at Poor Richards in Plano. With but a few miles between my house and the breakfast I arrived in the Gloria and parked with a few TR6s.

It also seems to be the month to change and balance tires as we had three weekend get togethers around the old tire changing machine. Duncan and John Hayes helped setting up and filling new shelving in my garage. The shelving should help making space for a dedicated stall for a machine shop. A few warm and dry days meant a drive or two in a TR was irresistible. Add some house repairs and a pool pump repair, work and I did not much progress on car repairs. But it has not been boring.

Looking forward we have a Polar Bear Rally this month on February 23rd. We will meet at the Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve at 9:30 and the Rally will start at 10am. The park is just south of Jupiter Road on Los Rios Boulevard in Plano.

This Month’s Tech Session will be a  collection of repair tips for small parts in your Triumph.

Cheers and drive them, don’t hide them!

Paul
