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
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.
As I’m sure most of you are aware this week should have been the Triumph 2000 / 2500 / 2.5 Register National Rally but due to Coronavirus has had to be cancelled.
Just to show you what you’ve missed and what you’re missing the gallery page of past Nationals is now up and running. Available from the menu or by following the link: triumph2000register.co.uk/gallery
We still need a lot more photos to make it complete. It would be great if you have any that you’d like to share to get them to me this week and we’ll see how many we can get uploaded before Sunday, what would have been the last day of the rally.
Montage shows a small selection of my favourites that are currently viewable.
Years we need photos for: 1998 we only have one. 1989-1991, 1993-1996, 1997 we only have two, 1998, 2000-2005, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2013, 2014.
Please don’t send any more than ten. File size doesn’t need to be any larger than 1500 pixels wide/2mb in size. For older photo prints, scanned images are preferred (most printers have scanning facilities these days). Just photographing them on a mobile phone tends not to work.
If you don’t have a scanner but are happy to post them to Paul Girling, 76 Richmond Road, Saham Toney, Thetford, Norfolk, IP25 7EU. I’ll scan and return them next time I’m allowed out for my weekly shop.
If you can also put where and when the National was that would be great.
New address details!
Maggie Roberts, our membership secretary, is moving house on Friday 13th March. The new address details are :–
Kiveton Park Station,
The telephone number for membership enquiries will remain the same; please see SIXappeal for details.
There may be some delays in processing memberships due to this, so thank you for your patience.
Unfortunately, we are having difficulties with the forum and at the moment Mike Stevens, our Forum Admin, can’t log on as an Administrator. This means he can’t action any of the administration actions (such as authorising new members or sorting out logging in issues)
This is being investigated and hopefully will be resolved soon. We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you all for your patience.
This year’s MG & Triumph Spares Day was memorable in more ways than one. Not only was Storm Ciara doing her best to bring the country to a standstill, (and nearly bring the roof down with the mid-afternoon hailstorm) but the Register stand was buzzing all day long. Congratulations go to Matt Field (and polisher Sue) for picking up ‘Best Triumph’ at the show and also to Maggie for handling the steady stream of membership transactions with no let-up. In fact she had 21 renewals, 2 rejoins & 2 new family members sign up during the show. Besides Matts lovely MK1, the Register stand also featured the Bradbury’s super MK2 estate – both drawing admiring glances. A lovely show enjoyed by all, despite the weather.
The Triumph 2000/2500/2.5 Register will be on stand 4-660 at the Restoration Show from Friday 27th – Sunday 29th March 2020. We will be recommissioning a Mk1 on our stand
Don’t forget to use the exclusive discount code for club members, published in Six Appeal.
To get the new website off to a flying start we’ve just had a short run of these 9cm square, self adhesive vinyl stickers produced. Emblazoned with the new ‘favicon’ (new one on me too…) logo as designed by our website creator Paul Girling, they are a fun new take on the Register name – pop one on your ride and show your allegiance! Available FREE to the first 40 members who send an SAE to the SIXappeal editor (address inside the front cover of the mag). Pop your membership number on the top left corner of the envelope. If you have a couple of cars then ask for 2. (Max 2 per household!)
The Register will be exhibiting at the NEC Restoration show 27-29 March 2020. This year our victim will be a Cherry Red MK1 undergoing some recommissioning after having been laid up for many years. This is a super show with a different hands-on feel to the November Classic and if you’ve not been it makes a great day out. Member’s discount code for reduced ticket prices will be published in the next SIXappeal at the end of January.
Don’t forget Sharon is planning to run a Triumph Northern Ireland Tour starting September 7th 2020 taking in the beautifully scenic ‘Causeway Coastal Route’. Interested? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible for more details.
