Welcome to the Ottawa Valley Triumph Club
The Ottawa Valley Triumph Club (OVTC) is dedicated to the preservation and pure enjoyment of owning and driving a Triumph. Please check out our calendar of events, pick an activity, and come join us — we're looking forward to meeting you. Our strength is in our membership. We invite you to join our club to share experiences and enjoy our activities. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact our Treasurer and Membership representative.
Winter Bash Date Confirmed - 19 January
Our traditional January Winter Bash will take place Sunday, 19 January from 02:00 pm. David and Belinda Batten have kindly agreed to host the event at their house, located at 4136 Wolfe Point Way, Gloucester (near the Ottawa Airport). They have a very friendly, larger dog, so anyone with dog allergies needs to be aware. The Winter Bash is the first chance in the New Year for the club to get together in an informal setting and meet other members and their significant other(s). It is a "Bring Your Own Drinks" and a "Pot Luck" food item that will be shared with those attending. To help with event planning, please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org to advise who is coming and the food you will be bringing. This has always been a great event. Just a reminder as well, that there is no OVTC monthly meeting in January.
Drive Your Triumph Day - 10 Febuary
In honour of Sir John Black's Birthday, the idea is to drive your Triumph (obviously not around here) on 10 February. Instead, you can take a picture of your car in storage or under restoration. Email a high-resolution photo to email@example.com, along with some basic information: owner’s name, year and model of car, and place photo was taken (city, state, country). Photos will be published in the Triumph Travelers Sports Car Club newsletter, and in the USA’s national magazine (Vintage Triumph Registry) and on the Drive Your Triumph Day website.

OVTC Tool Library
Gary Kristjansson has volunteered to take the lead on this project. Gary would like to hear from all club members about their tool needs, and the tool inventories they might be willing to share with other OVTC members. Is there a specific tool that you might need on an occasional basis that is a bit too expensive to purchase, or do you have some tools you would be willing to lend to other club members? If you have ideas about how this service to members could be set up and managed, Gary would love to hear from you. Please contact Gary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
