Essex Group Bulletin 131, December 2015
The TR Essex Group Bulletin No.131
Season's Greetings all,
A short update and the last in-box filler from me until next year:
Our Christmas D&D at the Bursted Golf club (CM12 9SS) is tomorrow, hoping for a great evening to round off the year, well not quite, our last event is lunch at the Royal Tiger on the 29th. never too late to sign up for this great value meal arranged by MikeB.
We will not be meeting at the Rose Inn this month and we are not officially at the White Hart for a meeting although I know some are still going. No reason why we can't show up but it may be necessary to book if eating, I'd guess they will be busy.
The Race Night at Proscaletrix on February 18th is now full but we can arrange another session provided we don't damage Graeme's track during the first event! So please let Kevin know if you would still like to try your skills on a professional circuit.
Andy reports today that the Burns Night at the White Hart on Friday the 29th January is a go. £30 per head, haggis (and alternatives for the faint hearted), a real piper, Burns poetry etc. Full menu available soon. Some of us will attempt Scottish attire but either way, black tie dress code is de rigueur; Val is looking at re-purposing the travel blanket as I type! This is pre-empting a formal invite from Kevin but please let him know ASAP so we can confirm with Liz at the WH.
Andy asked that I remind all the Norfolk trippers that their deposit is due and I'll get a note out to the small away team going to Germany as we also need to pay up in January.
Again pre-empting a note from Kevin, he has reserved rooms at a good hotel just outside Lincoln for the Standard Triumph Marque Day (IWE) in July. There will be shopping/sightseeing tours and we are looking at a detour to the BBMF at RAF Conningsby. Please let Kevin know ASAP if interested, it would be great if the Essex Group were solidly represented and support the new IWE format.
In the past hour I have received an acceptable "stitch sample" from the clothing supplier John is working with and he will be publishing prices soon. In the mean time, (because I need one!), I can advise that logo embroidered Rugby shirts of the same quality as before can be ordered priced at an unchanged £25.00 each.
Available in Black, Green, Burgundy, Chocolate, Navy, Olive, Purple, Red, Sapphire, Sky, Grey and … white.As well as new garments we can also offer a logo embroidery service on NEW garments supplied by members, price TBA.Please contact John with all you needs for the 2016 season.
More advanced info, watch out for the TRR Castle Combe track day next year, invitations to last year's entrants have gone out so I guess it will be in TR Action later in December.
By now you should have received the Autumn edition of Essex Group News, if not then please give me a call, too good to miss.
Lastly, I do have a few 2016 calendars left, if you can't get along to a place where I am then give me a call and I can reserve or post them.
TTFN, wishing you a great Christmas and a healthy new year from myself and all the committee,
Mike's Mart :
Remember, if you have or need something TR related then give me a call and it will appear here :
I have a brand new and unopened Clarke CEW1000 250Nm impact driver with carry case and a selection of sockets, Mains powered so it will last a lifetime. A mere £50.00 ONO and it's yours.
Just the Christmas present for all those without wire wheels.
