New Club Badges

NET club badge We are getting new badges! The club will provide at no charge, one name badge for each current NET member and one for his/her significant other. “Current” members are those who have paid their 2019 dues. If you haven’t yet paid, please include your dues check with your badge order. All of the details, examples, and the order form are in the Members Only area. Submit your request by April 30, 2019. If you miss the deadline you will still get a badge, but you will have to wait until we have enough orders for another production run.

Dennis and his topaz TR6 In 2018, we lost club member and dear friend Dennis Sokol. Dennis' birthday is in early August, so we are honoring Dennis with an ice cream run on Saturday August 3, 2019. We will use this event as an opportunity to raise money for cancer research, details are still TBD at this time. We will meet at Kimball Farm, 1543 Lunenburg Road (Rt. 70), Lancaster MA around 11:30 for lunch. The tour will start at 1:00. Possible end destination is Kimball Farm in Jaffrey NH for ice cream!

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 TR6 topaz colored (shirt, hat, piece of jewelry, a ribbon, whatever you like!).

Start up Meeting -- Sunday March 24, 2019

2019 startup meeting

We had a large turnout for our annual start up meeting with several new members in attendance. Thank you all for coming! The first order of business was the announcement about new club badges. There is more information at the top of this page. Please get your order in by April 30th so we can save money by ordering them all at once. Thanks.

The details of what we discussed in the rest of the meeting will be coming in the next newsletter but you will find our 2019 events already listed on our club calendar here on our website. We have also added many non-club events including car shows and racing events that we think may be of interest to our members. Our events are shown in British Racing Green, other events are in TR6 "it's not orange, it's topaz!".

We will be adding a list of the 2019 club events here on the main page of our website as well. Event information may be preliminary and subject to change. Details will be provided as they are made available. Event dates may change due to weather or scheduling conflicts, so check the calendar page often, especially as we get close to an event date. If there are last minute changes, we will update the calendar but it may not be possible to update the website so the calendar is the definitive source of information.

New Treasurer/Membership Secretary

Rick B

After over 10 years as our Treasurer and Membership Secretary, Rick Trowel is stepping down. Rick's contributions as a long-serving club officer go way beyond the tasks he did in his official roles as Treasurer and Membership Secretary. We all owe him, and Stephanie as well, our thanks for everything they have done to help keep our club going.

We are very fortunate and grateful that Rick Barnard has volunteered to take on these roles! For those who may not already know him, here is a photo of Rick working on his prize-winning TR6. Rick B. met with Rick T. to transition everything over and is ready to accept and process your membership renewal forms (it is that time of year!). The membership form has been updated with Rick B's contact information and is available here on our website. The updated version will also be distributed in the next newsletter. Rick's email address is available on our Contact page. Please offer Rick your thanks for volunteering to help run our club.
