Drive Your Triumph Day - 10 February
Sir John Black’s is the man who bought Standard/Triumph after WWII and built many of the Triumphs we enjoy today. His Birthday is 10 February, and Rye Livingston of the Triumph Travelers Sports Car Club has organized a "drive your Triumph day" to celebrate. Obviously for us, February is not conducive to TR driving, but we can participate by taking an in-storage or in-restoration picture. If you would like to submit a photo taken on 10 February, please send it to email@example.com.
OVTC Tool Library
We have discussed this issue in the past, but for various reasons the idea has faltered. Gary Kristjansson has volunteered to take the lead with this project. At this time, Gary would like to hear from all club members about their tool needs and tool inventories they might be willing to share with other OVTC members. So, 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? Also, 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.
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.
