Area news roundup
The area dinner on 8th February in Benedict's Hotel in Belfast went extremely well.

We had a few last minute cancellations but otherwise everything went very well. Nobody seemed to have any problems getting parked nearby (despite the hotel's city centre location). The hotel restaurant was full, the noise of multiple parties at times a bit overwhelming but the service and food was first class. As explained in last months article the annual dinner is when the winners of our local awards are announced - Michael Kernahan is Member of the Year and Christel Edwards-de Graauw received the Coupe Des Dames. While certainly not an official award by any means Alan French continued his tradition of making his own award, usually for some mechanical or motorsport mishap. This year the obvious candidate was Paul (if you read Paul's article in last months Courier on hill climbs you will know why), however having received a trophy years ago from Alan made from a melted piston, Paul sensibly made sure any bits of wrecked engine were well hidden. Not to be deterred Alan commissioned
Paul was this years recipient of an Alan French award -a picture by Pam\ his very talented wife Pam to do a picture of Paul and the Spitfire at Cultra which was presented at the dinner. It's really good and has pride of place on the wall in our house. The awards were not the only announcements at the dinner, Gary and Caroline (the newly weds on the front cover of the January Courier) announced that Caroline is pregnant while Richard and celebrating Richard and Maureen's engagement Maureen announced their engagement. This report was written before the March area meeting took place and the Garden Centre Treasure Hunt so you will have to wait until next month for updates on both. The next club event will be the Trunnion oiling on 5th April at Carrickfergus Castle. — always a popular event and well worth going along to. Entry forms are now available for the Argory (26th April and Kilbroney Vintage Show (21 June ) - if you need a from please let us know.
As you would expect local members have been working away at getting cars ready for the new season. Dessie, Frank an Paul took Colin Lindsay up on his offer for parts from a Hera he is breaking and as far as I can tell they found homes for rn of the parts. David has been helping John Hewitt get his Spitfire running again and , according to John , it is going better than ever. He is planning to take part in the 2014 Hill Climb Championship and is looking forward to the first event, Croft, on 12th April. Also hoping to enter Croft is Christel in the Triumph 2.5 PI. Our Triumph team should be the strongest yet for 2014 - although if Gordon Dunlop can find the time to get his Spitfire up and running again it would be even better!
Spring will soon be here so it's time to waken your Triumph from its slumbers and get it out on the road where it belongs.
Best regards
Do more with your Triumph!
