OVTC Golf Tournament - 8 September
We will have competition from some other British car clubs this year. For more information see flyer. Please let David B. know by 20 August if you plan to attend.
Guest Speaker for 23 October Meeting
Our guest speaker in October will be Peter Lawton. Peter will talk about the development of the car business in Coventry. He grew up in Coventry and served an apprenticeship there in the 1960s, not with Standard Triumph but just down the road from the factory. His talk will address the social history of innovation in Coventry, which lead to the development of the bicycle, the motor cycle, and then the car. Triumph of course played a big part in this culture of innovation.
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.
