March area news

Hi everybody. Well February's weather was amazing followed
by a wet March, luckily our February run was on one of the best
days of the year so far, Anne & Wayne arranged a
fab run out around North Manchester and Lancashire, we met
up with some of the Lancashire area members on route with
an hour long drive through amazing countryside, stopping off
at Huntley's Farm Shops & Restaurant for lunch then
onto Samlesbury Hall near Preston. We had eight
Triumphs that made the run out and had a good photo
line up at Huntleys, parked in front of an MG meet that
had also chosen to meet there. Graham brought
along his new acquired Stag and it as well as all the
other Triumphs performed faultlessly.
The March run we are planning is a simple country drive out
and lunch at a country / village pub, April run TBA and the
May run out being a much bigger run out, there is a Facebook
event been created called North Wales Drive Out on 12th
May, starting near Chester and then on to and around North
Wales through places like Betws-y-Coed, bottom of
Snowden, Llanberis etc. there will be all sorts of cars doing
the run so should be a great day out.
With this years main TSSC Event (Inter club TSSC & TR
Register) being held at Stratford Upon Avon racecourse on
16th to18th August 2019, a few of our area will be attending
this event and will try and get more from Manchester to support
this event. There are plenty of B&Bs/Hotels in the area
for those who don't camp, booking for this is in this Courier
magazine, also don't forget to support other local area events
if you can. Just a reminder anyone still wishing to display on
our stand at the Chipping Steam Fair need to get there applications
sent in asap, you can download it from www.chippingsteamfair.
Update on our members cars, Paul has now stripped his
Spitfire bulkhead , ready to be sprayed with 2 pack epoxy
been applied first. I have fitted a new alternator and
Accuspark electronic ignition I am very pleased with its operation.
Paul has a Vitesse saloon which he is changing to a
convertible, he has a rear Herald tub which he is using and
windscreen surround. Alistair should by now have his new
roof fitted to his Bond Equipe 2.5ltr, its longer than a standard
Vitesse one so has had to have one specially made.
As previously the Manchester area covers such a large area,
we change our area meeting venue every few months, so
from April onwards we will be at The Joshua Bradley,
Stockport Road, Hyde, Stockport, SK14 5EZ, see you
down there.
We have decided to change a few things for this year, firstly
as requested by our members it seems that they want more
single day runs out to various points of interest, ie museums
etc rather than booking on at car shows where applications
have to be submitted months in advance where its difficult to
get names put forward to who is attended, so we will concentrate
this year on mostly single day drive outs and to car
shows where you can just turn up on the day. So keep an
eye out on our facebook page and on here for details of what
we are up to. Following on from this, we have decided to
change our Manchester Area Weekend to a BBQ weekend
with onsite accommodation to suit members who don't have
caravans or camp, date and venue TBA.
Please check the website news for updates on our forthcoming
events on www.tssc.org.uk/tssc/areanews.asp
