2018 [Updated 21/5/2018]
May 1: LVG Committee Meeting
May 2: LVG Wednesday Evening Meeting
The second of our Wednesday evening meetings will be on Wednesday 2nd May at The Dog and Badger, Maulden.
This was a popular choice last year with very friendly staff and locals, plenty of space inside (2 bars and a restaurant) plus a garden and reasonable size car park.
Lynda has phoned and booked space for up to 20 people to eat at about 7:30, so please phone the pub direct as soon as possible (and no later than the morning of the 2nd) if you intend to eat and tell them you are with the Triumph TR Car Club. It would be helpful if you could also let me know if you have booked just in case we need to negotiate extra places. Of course you are welcome to just come along for a drink, chat and tyre-kicking session if you wish!
See you there,

[We have arranged a visit to TNMOC for LVG members, including friends and relatives, with a guided tour by TR Register member Peter Hoath. Details are attached but numbers are limited so please contact Brian Chidwick as soon as possible to reserve places.]
Note that this is not simply for computer nerds, anoraks or those with a 'computerisednumbercrunchingbrain'! No great computing knowledge is required - it's the history that is important and interesting and the museum and contents are separate from the main Bletchley Park which many of us have visited before. http://www.tnmoc.org/
