CTR Tour of Paddock Classic Car Restorations – February 29th 2020
in light of the arrival of COVID-19 here in Connecticut, and after consultation with the CT MG Club, we have decided to cancel this event. We do plan to reschedule our Bowling Challenge for a date and time that would work for both our clubs. After all, bragging rights are still up for grabs…….!
Bowling Challenge and Pizza is Saturday March 14th
Please join members from the CT Triumph Register and the CT MG Club for a night of bowling and pizza. This event has been held annually for many years and it is always a night of fun, food, and friendly competition. It a great way to spend a wintry Saturday evening!
The date is Saturday, March 14, 2020 from 6PM-8PM at Apple Valley Bowl in Plantsville: Address: 1304 S. Main Street, Plantsville, CT Phone: 860-628-4553
After bowling (around 8 PM), we will head to Dominic and Vinnie’s Pizza just a few miles away for pizza and refreshments…….Address: 868 Meriden Waterbury Turnpike, Southington, CT Phone: 860-621-9846
Please arrive a few minutes early for bowling so we can get started right at 6PM and get a full two hours of bowling in.

Sunday, April 26th, 2020 at 10am — Shop Skills Tech Session
and Spring Bar-B-Q/Pot Luck Lunch
All 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 tables 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.
Space is limited to 15 so please RSVP Alex or Janet by calling 203-266-4067 or e-mailing at ALJLThomson@Charter.net
