MG Trivia Challenge, 25 November
Sounds like this will be a fun event. Please let Chuck know at email@example.com by 17 November if you plan to attend so that he can confirm numbers with the MG folk. More details on Calendar page.
Contact from Member of Triumph Sports Owners' Association
Dave and Pam Jamieson recently contacted the OVTC to see if any of our members remembered anyone from their time in the TSOA in Ottawa in the early 1970s. Mike G. was part of that group with his 59 TR3A but Dave and Mike don't recall meeting each other ... who knows maybe they chatted at some point. Here are two newspaper clippings and a picture sent by Dave and one of the grill badge and jacket patch from Mike. Anyone know anyone from that time, or have pictures to share? Please let Mike know at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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 email@example.com.
BCCI Long Distance Awards
The British Car Council (BCCI) Long Distance Awards program typically runs from 1 April through 31 October each year. OVTC members are eligible for these awards. You can report your opening and closing mileage for 2017 in two ways.
