Winter Bash - 27 January
Great way to kick off the club's activities in 2018. Many thanks to David and Belinda Batten for hosting our Winter Bash this year. As usual a great time was had by all, and the food and company were fantastic. There may be a few new racing simulators on the "boys" shopping lists in the near future!
Dart Tournament - 24 February
Another successful and enjoyable darts tournament this year with 14 teams participating. Congratulations to MG club members Bill and Andrea MacTavish who emerged as the winners. They defeated Martin Burtt and Paul Winter of the Triumph club in the final. Thanks to Trish Adams of MG club, and Mike S and Paul W. of OVTC for providing pictures. More pictures can be found on the Ottawa MG Club website.

North Augusta Car Show - 2 September
Bit of a wet start, but turned out to be a nice day late in morning and for the afternoon. David H., Bob T., and Mike and Marjorie G. (although not in a TR) represented the club. Good selection of cars considering the heavy rain in the morning.
Third Annual OVTC Golf Tournament - 9 September
A great day for golf, and for the first time we had the pleasure of hosting member of the MG and Jaguar Clubs at our little tournament. Given the responses we received, we can likely expect more golfers next year. Congratulations to Team TR (Chuck, David B., and Mike S.) on their win. Thanks to David as well for organizing the event once again this year.
British Invasion at Hazeldean Mall - 11 September
Despite rather cloudy skies, a good turn out of British cars. Thanks to Alan G. of the Ottawa Jaguar Club for organizing the invasion and the following supper at the Glen Restaurant.
Stowe British Invasion - 14-16 September
Bob and Fran and David and Linda attended the British Invasion in Stowe once again this year. Bob and David kindly submitted these pictures for the website.
Merrickville Classic European Car Show - 23 September
Great turn out of European cars for the inaugural edition of this show. Good number of OVTC members displayed their cars. Look forward to making this a regular event on our calendar.
Club Meeting, 23 October, Presentation by Peter Lawton
Our guest speaker was Peter Lawton. Peter spoke 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 very informative and interesting talk addressed the history of innovation in Coventry, which lead from the wool, watch, and sewing machine businesses to the development of the bicycle, the motor cycle, and then the car. Triumph played a significant part in this culture of innovation, along with several other well-known car companies.
Ottawa MG Club Trivia Challenge, 25 November
This inaugural event was organized by the MG Club, which also invited the Triumph Club and Jaguar Clubs to participate. The OVTC was represented by two teams - Team TR3 (Chuck and Marjorie and Mike G.) and Team TR4 (Mike S., Guy, and Marie and Phil). Congratulations to the Team TR4, which won the competition and the new challenge trophy. Team TR3 tied for second but lost the tie-breaker to a team from the MG club. A fun afternoon for everyone who participated. Many thanks to the MG club for the invitation and hospitality.
