February 14, 2013 Meeting


2013 February Meeting
President Larry Berg called the meeting to order at 7:05 p.m. by wishing everyone a happy Valentine's Day.

He had some sad news to report, however, with the recent passing of Dennis Meyer.

Larry also reported that Terry Mackey's 103-year-old mother had a stroke recently, so Terry is visiting her and unable to be at tonight's meeting.

Larry passed around pictures of Joe and Karen DeMuth's new TR6 named "Trixie."

Our fearless president also had a copy of the new Triumph Calendar, featuring pictures off Bill Nelson's Spitfire. You'll recall that the rules asked for pictures of your Triumph in a town or city with a name related to water. For example, a picture of your car in front of the White Bear Lake water tower would be good. Unfortunately, there wasn't a lot of participation, outside of Bill. On the plus side, we now get to see pictures of Bill's little Spitfire each month.

The next calendar challenge involves pictures of your Triumph in front of a barbecue restaurant. Watch for more on the point system from Larry, but basically you get more points for having more cars in the picture.

A big thanks went out to everyone who took part in the Winter Party in January. The club raised a bit of money, which is always good.

The recent meeting at the Square Peg to hammer out the events calendar of the year was fruitful as the calendar looks quite full for the year. Anyone wanting to organize an event should contact Terry Mackey or Dick Leighninger.

Historian Greg Gelhar reported that he's always looking for pictures of past events.

Pat Holt reminded everyone that the InterMarque spring Kickoff is scheduled for May 11. He mentioned that there are also a couple of other events (a car show on Lake Minnetonka in early June and the Walleye 1000 Vintage Rally) that are looking for more participation from little British cars.

Orrin reminded everyone that British Car Week is coming up at the end of May in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. By all accounts it's an absolutely amazing weekend.

Larry adjourned the meeting at 7:28 p.m.

Total Attendees: 26
Total Triumph Cars: 0 (still too much salt on the roads)

This is the obligatory oil spot left at the bottom of any Triumph endeavor.
