TR Action 327

Hi everyone, welcome to your latest TRAction magazine. I’m sure, like me, you’ll be impressed with the continually improving quality and interesting content. This one was certainly a good read over the Christmas period which has flown by.

So we’re into 2021 and we’re all hoping that things will turn out better this year. Paul, Mark and I have started to collect some ideas for our 2021 calendar, so that we’ll be ready to roll, once we’re allowed.

Since writing my last report we’ve had the TR Register AGM. This was also held on-line through a streaming service and it was a very successful event, which also enabled a good level of attendance from those that are otherwise too far away to attend in person. I’m sure we’ll be seeing further use of this technology in the future too. One thing for me to report, following that meeting, is that I am now also your South West Area Director! This I see very much as a coordinating role and I’ve already been in closer contact with fellow GLs in Dorset (Brian), Somerset (Mario) and Cornwall (Pete); and in all cases we’re looking at some joint events and activities this year including, of course, the TS2 tour.

I will be sharing the plans and activities for this car with you. Currently, Derek is helping with arranging a display and drive option from Buckfastleigh Steam Railway on 11 May but I will be wanting volunteers to assist with the event itself as well as the passage of the car through Devon to Cornwall and back again onto Somerset/Apple County, so please let me know if you can offer some help and watch out for more details to follow.

With the current level of restrictions, I would also anticipate that our season will start again on Zoom. This will be our ‘first Thursday of the month’ meeting and will be on 4 February, so please watch out for the email with the link to connect.

My own car specific activities have been limited to getting FXF through its mot (no advisories) but has since just been wrapped up in the garage. Unlike Paul, who decided that his already lovely car needed a little further tidying and he’s once again taken the body off for something to do – and hopefully with plenty of content for our next In the Garage newsletter too.

That’s all for now, I hope to see you soon, Alan
