TR Action 307
For those of you who recall my last report, you'll be pleased to hear that we did win against the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club at skittles, by almost 100 skittles, but Neville's wife Chris did secure the prize for her highest score of 69! With a good buffet selection too, a very enjoyable evening was had by all.
Recent shows that we have attended include Killerton where we had an excellent show of 26 Devon TRs (as well as my Boxster that I sneaked in after having some trouble with my 6) - I don't think anyone minded or were too polite to say anything – thanks guys. We also had a few cars attending the Bude show too on the same day. It was lovely and sunny and at Killerton, our display was also set-off very nicely with some new, Devon bunting that has been kindly donated by Andrew and Martin.
Shortly after these shows, there were was much activity in the North Devon area where Shropshire , Group and then the Youth Group paid a visit. Feedback has been very positive and a good time was had by all. Local members including Andrew and Steve were called into action to help facilitate repairs to a number of vehicles too.
This weekend we joined up with the local TSSC Group and parked up at the South Devon Railway for our regular Trains and Triumphs event. This year there were 46 Triumphs on show around the field and plenty of chat. The day started with a hearty breakfast, as well as other treats, and there was plenty to do, along with the chance to ride on the local steam train down to Totnes and back.
The season is getting into full swing now. Next weekend is Father's Day and we've got a group of cars going to the Morwellham Quay Classic Car show on the Sunday and we're weeks away from our own International Weekend at Lincoln, quickly followed by a trip to Classic Le Mans for some and the excellent Powderham show in the grounds of Powderham Castle.
Look out for emails from me with Upcoming Events and pland for the rest of the year are available on our Devon web page. Bye for now.
