Upcoming Events

Due to our ever changing  COVID-19 virus environment, the events calendar below is rather questionable…….what with event cancellations, reschedules and postponements, we encourage you to ALWAYS check with the event organizer to confirm the status before you head out.   Thanks.

 Current “planned” 2020 events are below in chronological order. (Cancelled & postponed events have been moved to the bottom of the page )


CTR’s 40th ANNUAL BRITISH MOTORCAR GATHERING AND PICNIC

 

- CTR 2016 Shirt - fullcolor x

Hosted by the Connecticut Triumph Register Sunday, September 13th, 2020 – 9:30am thru 1:00pm

Venue:

The Connecticut Triumph Register invites anyone with a British motorcar of any make, model, and condition to join in. This year’s gathering is low key —no classes, voting or awards- no pressure! Take your car out for a drive and stop in for a while. Meet and mingle with other Triumph and British vehicle owners.  Bring your own picnic lunch and beverages.

Wickham Park:

With 250 acres of gardens, woodlands, ponds, and attractions including an aviary, is a beautiful venue for this autumn event. Signs within the park will direct participants to the field parking area. There is no registration fee for the CTR event.  (At this time but subject to change, Wickham park is a privately managed park, and  charges $7/car to enter the grounds.)

Directions:

Wickham Park is located at 1329 West Middle Turnpike in Manchester, CT and is easily accessible from Interstate 84 (exit 60).

Sunday, April 26th, 2020  at 10am — Shop Skills Tech Session

and Spring Bar-B-Q/Pot Luck Lunch

ctr bbq 6All CTR and CTMG members are invited to attend a tech session where we will revisit some of those old time shop skills such identifying fasteners, cutting threads, installing helicoils, identifying tubing connections and sharpening drill bits.  Alex & Janet Thomson are hosting this event at their shop at 21 Peter Rd. in Woodbury. This will be a hands-on session in the heated shop so dress appropriately. Coffee and other light refreshments will be provided.

 

At high noon, we will put away the tools, clean off the tablesCtr BBq 2 and enjoy a pot-luck lunch.  Janet and Alex will have a charcoal grill set up and will cook hot dogs and hamburgers. We will also have space available for crock-pots for those who wish to bring a warm dish and there will be plenty of refrigerator space available, as well.

 

Directions from US Rt. 6 in Woodbury: Turn north onto CT Rt. 47 across from Canfield Corner Pharmacy. Proceed for 1.5 miles. Turn right onto Peter Rd. We are the first house on the left – Red house, red barn, red shop – if you see a traffic light on the shop with “Gulf” gas pumps, you are probably at the right place.
