TR Action 265
GWTR regulars welcomed Dereck Hunt (TR6) and Nigel Jurd (TR4) at our 19th February meet at the George Inn, Eartham. Such are the numbers these chilly days ,we are going to have to find a new venue for the summer, as the ‘snug’ was pretty well full!
I moved a proposal to continue to hold the GWTR AGM on the 16th April Meet and thereafter annually in April. With Steve Young seconding, this was unanimously approved.
GWTR will be meeting up for the South East Area Drive it Day to Wakehurst Place near Ardingly on 21st April at 10.30am at the Bury Hill Café car park. This is just north of Arundel at the A289 /A284 /B2139 roundabout on the A289 itself ~ Paul Russel has kindly offered to organize a mystery ‘calvalcader’ run over to Wakehurst for us ~ I hope to run shotgun in a GWTR TR as I am yet ‘sans’ TR myself. I note that the prices of TR6s seem on the up and up… hmmm.
Not joined us at the George Inn meet last year? Well TR Register members living in West Sussex may like to know that we do meet up at the Sunday morning Goodwood breakfast club meetings ,mostly from 8am to midday. Phil Starling’s TR4A at the recent Goodwood Soft Top Sunday is pictured for us here .
Lastly please contact Mike Noyes or myself if you are now able to go on the GWTR Laon trip in May.
It will be “bring a motoring related item” for our raffle on 19th March ~ our first this year and we have a choice selection gathered already!
So don’t be a ‘Social Loafer’ just Spring into your TR and join us at our next meet on 19th March! See: www.goodwood-tr-classics.co.uk ; my email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
TR Action 264
Well Goodwood bods have had a pretty damp 2012… so moving on to our GWTR TR4 and TR4A owners in those sunnier times. We gallery Les Thacker’s marvelous TR …along with a somewhat more meaty motor!
More of our Group’s TR4’s will be featured in the spring editions; it looks like it is going to be a while before we get around to the TR6s and TR7s!
For details of West Sussex area TR events, please come along to our Meet on 19th march at the George Inn and keep in touch personally. For just about any TR related problem or enquiry we have a huge collective experience on across the Tr model range so if you have a mystery TR problem why not contact us as your local group.

Now it is back to the Garage for me, so let the sun shine on your TR this new year and see you at the George Inn! Ignition On!
TR Action 263
Christmas will have been enjoyed and gone by the time all West Sussex Gwtr’ers will be reading this - we will have had 26 bods sitting down to our Xmas bash dinner at a well known ‘Italian’ in the heart of Arundel. Our TR picture competition created all the pics for our GWTR 2013 calendars and they were, well, sold out in November - clearly it pays to keep in touch with us by coming to our Meets at the George Inn at Eartham!
Back in November we played a skittle match against the South Downs TR group at the Bull Inn in Henfield - good to see the ladies having a go! T’was a close run match which led to us just losing the decider match by one skittle. Well done to SDG; more challenge matches next summer! It was a great day out, blessed with rare sunshine as well. many thanks to Richard George for sorting it all out for us.
A brief look at the year past as it were, we can say that our local group meetings, despite the weather, have a well-established turn out. We are seeing new members who womble up and come back to our meets; many also have to contend with rushing back from work in London to reach our meets at the George, along with those who have family commitments and it is a big thanks to all these members, who over the year know it is worth the trips!
We have a strong TR2,TR3/A following within our group with TR4/4As also popular and we have at least four TR5s. Len Hughes’ Magenta TR6 is this month’s galleried picture ~ not much polishing needed there then Len. Hopefully we can show more of our ‘out and about ‘cars in TR Action in the coming months. So no matter what model your TR, no matter if it is an early or late TR or indeed another classic, so if you live in Midhurst, or in Pulborough or Worthing or indeed Littlehampton. It is a nice drive to the George Inn at Eartham; join us for our 13th January evening meet-up.
We are deferring our December raffle with its excellent hand-picked prizes until then folks! Best of all keep in touch personally, let the sun shine on your TR this new year. See: www.goodwood-tr-classics.co.uk or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Ignition On!
