Triumph 2000 Register National Postponed Again

The Register has decided, very reluctantly, that it will once again not be possible to hold our national rally this year. In making this decision we have considered many things, including:

  • The risk of running the event only one week after the proposed date for the lifting of restrictions in England is just too great.
  • St Audries have just told us that they have decided not to reopen the main building (bar, restaurant, etc.) this year. The chalets are not self-catering and they therefore rely on the St Audries kitchen for their meals (breakfast at least, and probably their evening meal too), which of course is in the main building. The Saturday evening entertainment and the AGM on Sunday morning are also important indoor activities.
  • We have members from overseas and other parts of the UK, whose governments have different timetables for the relaxation of lockdown restrictions.
  • It would be very difficult to organise many of the planned activities while the lockdown is still in force.

On a more positive note, we will be able to hold the event at the same venue in 2022, although it will be slightly earlier. The next Triumph 2000 / 2500 / 2·5 Register “National” will therefore be held at St Audries Bay Holiday Club from Monday 6th June to Monday 13th June 2022.

This was an extremely difficult and painful decision, but with the gradual improvement of the COVID-19 situation we should be able to look forward to a “third time lucky” gathering in June 2022.

Membership Shop PayPal Problem Fixed

The Membership Shop PayPal problem has at long last been fixed. Apologies for the false alarm earlier today. We have had two successful transactions through the shop this evening, so it should now be OK. If it still doesn’t work for you, please contact me (the Webmaster, email via Who’s Who) as soon as possible. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused. – Andy

Membership Shop PayPal Problem

Update (Monday 13 July 2020 at 18.30): the problem has at long last been fixed. I’m sorry, but we are still having problems with the PayPal connection with the website membership shop. Please bear with us while we get it fixed. If you have tried to renew but haven’t been able to, please let the Membership Secretary know (you can send an email via Who’s Who) and we’ll keep your membership current and let you know when the shop is working again. For further information contact the Webmaster (email via Who’s Who). We are working to resolve this as soon as possible.

2020 National Cancelled

We have decided, with great regret, that because of the coronavirus pandemic it will not be possible to hold our national rally this year. It will be the first time since 1982 that we have been unable to hold the event, but the safety and well-being of our members, many of whom could be in the “at risk” category, is paramount.

The current restrictions mean that the venue is closed at the moment, and it is very unlikely that the lock-down will be lifted in time for us to organise the rally.

There is some good news, though: we have been able to secure the same venue for the same week in 2021. So the next “National” will be held at St Audries Bay from Monday 28th June 2021 to Monday 5th July 2021. We are hoping that we will be able to keep the same prices as this year.

We have contacted everyone who has booked for this year’s National to let them know. All are being offered either a full refund or to carry over their booking to the 2021 National.

We are extremely sad that we have had to take this decision, but let’s all look forward to a great event next year.

If you need any further information please contact Colin and Amanda Radford, our National Coordinators (see Who’s Who).
