What's Ahead...

Club Events for the remainder of 2018 are listed below. In some cases, details are not yet available and will be provided closer to the date. As we approach an event date, check the club calendar here on our website for late-breaking information. It's not always possible to update the website's home page at the last minute, but we do our best to update the calendar entry for an event if the date, time or meeting location is changed or if an event is cancelled.

Day of Triumph - Sunday Jul 29, 2018 -- 10am to 2pm

TR7s at DOT 2014

This is our club's annual car show, held at The Larz Anderson Auto Museum, 15 Newton Street, Brookline, MA 02245. Car registration is $20 per car and includes the driver and one passenger. Volunteers are needed to help on the day of the show. Donations for the raffle table are appreciated, thanks!

Dennis Sokol Memorial Ice Cream Run - Saturday, Aug 4, 2018 -- 11:30am to 3:30pm

Dennis and his topaz TR6

Earlier this year, we lost club member and dear friend Dennis Sokol. We are honoring Dennis with a tour and ice cream run on the Saturday following his birthday. Dennis was always quick to correct anyone who referred to the color of his TR6 as orange by telling them "It's topaz!" so, if possible, please wear something topaz colored (shirt, hat, piece of jewelry, ribbon, whatever).

We will meet at Kimball Farm's Lancaster, MA location (1543 Lunenburg Rd, Lancaster, MA) between 11:30am and noon for lunch. The tour will start at 1:00pm. We will drive for just over an hour, arriving at Kimball Farm's Westford, MA location at approximately 2:15pm for ice cream. To check out the lunch menu and the list of ice cream flavors, go to Kimball Farm's website. Ned and Ellen are the tour organizers.

Drive up Movie Night - DATE CHANGE: Saturday, Aug 25, 2018 -- 6:30pm to 10:00pm

Drive-up movie audience

Note the date change: the event will take place on Saturday August 25th.

Our Nth annual Drive up Movie Night will again be at John Bowe's shop 17 Gigante Dr, Hampstead, NH 03841. This year's movie is "This Is Spinal Tap", a very funny "mockumentary" about the disasterous US Tour of "Spinal Tap", a fictional British rock band. It's a bit British, there is something about cars (well, sort of, there's a song that mentions mud flaps), it's loaded with jokes, and features many familiar actors.

The club will provide pizza, salad and bottled water. Popcorn will be available. Plan to arrive between 6:30 and 7:00pm. Our feature film starts between 8:00 and 8:30pm. We can't actually sit in our cars during the movie so bring a lawn chair and something to drink if you want something other than water. Please RSVP to: so that we order enough food! The event will end around 10pm so driving your Triumph is optional.

Lobster Tour - York, Maine - Saturday, Sep 22, 2018

Lobster Tour

Join us for Tom and Wendy's annual driving tour of scenic southeast Maine, followed by dinner. The tour usually departs from York, Maine. Details will be provided closer to the event date.

NET Fall Tour - Saturday, Oct 13, 2018

Details will be provided closer to the event date.

NET End of Year Party - Saturday November 10, 2018 -- 6:00-10:30PM

Our End of Year party will once again be held at the Courtyard by Marriott in Marlborough, MA. We will have a reception with cheese, crackers, and veggies, a buffet style dinner (menu is still TBD) and a cash bar. As usual, there will be some remarks by our illustrious club director to close out the driving season and our own unique take on the Yankee swap, perhaps with another interesting twist this year. We have worked with the hotel's event staff to make some improvements including locating the dinner buffet inside our function room instead of out in the hallway this time! More details (buffet menu and price) will be provided later this summer, after Day of Triumph.

The room rate, including breakfast for two on Sunday, is $98 + tax* for a king room or $123 + tax* for a room with two queen beds. These rates are available until October 14, 2018 or until our allotment of rooms has been booked. The total tax is 11.7%, (5.7% Massachusetts tax and 6% local tax), making the total room charge approximately $109.50 for the king-bedded room, $137.40 for the room with two queen beds. The link you need to book a room is in the Members Only area. Meanwhile, stayed tuned for more details about the menu and the price.

Start up Meeting - March 25, 2018

John leads the 2018 startup meeting

We held our startup meeting on Sunday March 25, 2018. We had a good turnout, so thank you to everyone who made it to this year's meeting. Most of the club officers are continuing on in their current positions with the exception of Tricia Gibbs and Tom Walling who are swapping roles. Tricia is taking over regalia and Tom is assuming the role of newsletter editor. Please consider writing an article for our newsletter. The editor is responsible for putting the newsletter together but that is only possible if we have articles to publish!

There are a lot of events on the schedule for this driving season. Everything is posted on our calendar. Events organized by our club are in British racing green, events hosted by other clubs are in TR6 topaz ("it's not orange, it's topaz!"). The information for some events is preliminary. Details will be posted as they are made available. Event dates may change due to weather or scheduling conflicts, so be sure to check the calendar page often, especially as we get close to an event date.

Our End of Year Party was held on the evening of Saturday Nov 11, 2017 at the Courtyard by Marriott, Marlborough, MA. There is a report of the event in the February 2018 newsletter, available in the Members area of our website.
