d     December 4th Board Meeting        by Gordon
This was held at the at Cheshire Cat; present were Terry Hughes, Marietta Coon, Marty Cohen, Don Joy, Mike Cline, Neil McCready, Andy DeVisscher, Gordon Kenney, and Tom and Dorthy High.  Terry opened the meeting at 7:00 by asking for officer re-ports. Neil reported there was one Triumph in the parking lot, (Andy’s GT-6) and Gordon gave a brief report as acting secretary.  Marietta reported a current membership of 176; she has dropped 17 people this month who have not paid dues since September. She is individually mailing a reminder notice to each person who is past due.  Andy grossed $44 from last months raffle with $18 ex-penses; Sundays brunch brought in $6.00 net. Brooks had to pay an additional $10 at the brunch to cover a shortage (this may have been caused by the 15% discount coupon used at one table).  Don reported on what he has learned at recent Old Car Council meetings. Although we are one of the few car clubs which doesn’t support this organization the board again agreed that the annual cost of about $600 for us to belong was just too expensive.  Marty distributed a financial summary which shows a checkbook balance of $3,999.49. Overall the club has
gained about $500 this year in operating income/expenses excluding VTR items.  Old Business: Dorthy discussed the arrangements for the Christmas party. She will arrange for the table decorations which will be distributed via a free raffle at the party. Terry will cook and bring the ham, turkey, sodas and a CD player.  In discussion regarding the January banquet Gordon raised the question of what is going to be its actual cost since we are charging the members $30/each. It appears the cost will be about $35-37 per person; the club will absorb the extra cost somewhere in the range of $350-$500 for the event.  Mike will get Action Awards a new copy of the club logo.  Gordon and Mike will prepare the certificates of apprecia-tion for the banquet.  Gordon passed out an updated list of members who get e-mail vs. a paper copy of the newsletter and gave Marietta a copy of the rules for Member Of the Year selection to be added to the membership directory.  The club needs to solicit volunteers for the positions of pub-licity and for the archives; these positions are to be filled by the 2002 board.                Meeting adjourned at 8:10 PM
Borrowed from the TYEE TRIUMPH CLUB TRUMPET, November 2001— an article by Tom Mohle  This article provides some excellent advise regarding electrical fuses on our Triumph. Confusion may arise from the US practice of a fuse rating indicating how many amperes it will carry without blowing while the Lucas fuse rating is the nu m-ber of amperes which will blow the fuse. So if you put a 30 amp US BUSS AGC fuse into a circuit designed for a 30 amp LUCAS fuse you have actually replaced a 30 amp fuse with a 50 amp fuse and could easily burn out some of the wiring in event of a electrical short. The correct equivalent between LUCAS and BUSS AGC is as follows:  If it calls for a LUCAS 50 Amp fuse, the BUSS AGC equivalent is 30 AMP  If it calls for a LUCAS 35 Amp fuse, the BUSS AGC equivalent is 25 AMP  If it calls for a LUCAS 30 Amp fuse, the BUSS AGC equivalent is 20 AMP  If it calls for a LUCAS 25 Amp fuse, the BUSS AGC equivalent is 15 AMP  If it calls for a LUCAS 20 Amp fuse, the BUSS AGC equivalent is 10 AMP ivalent is 3 AMP

Page 8 Christmas Party, December 14th The Triumph Herald     The clubs annual Christmas Party was a great success. The weather cooperated and it was a nice evening to be out and around. Bud Rolofson and Bob Brown even drove their TR-6’s and Paul Fallico drove his TR 250. Thirty-nine members signed the guest book. The Arbor House was a nice meeting place with plenty of parking, an open fireplace and a gaily decorated meeting roo m. As is customary it was a BYOB and a potluck dinner and there were plenty of drinks and good food for everyone.  After dinner Terry Hughes played “Santa” and conducted the gift exchange. We used the “3 claim” rule and many of the gifts exchanged hands the full three times before finding a final owner.  By about 9:30 the party was over and we gathered up the leftovers, cleaned up the hall and went on our way.

I put this newsletter together it is with a ain amount of relief knowing that I ’t have to do it again (as I have for the 36 issues and once before that for two rs). It is always a significant amount of k and always entails a certain amount ustration in getting materials together, ing people for needed information, se-ing the photos and identifying the peo-in them while trying to not make too y errors. I have enjoyed doing each and every e and I will miss the opportunity each th to select and write what the rest of membership will read. It has been a ilege that has produced a great deal of sfaction for me and I have appreciated thanks many of you have expressed. ve with just one request— please give (with the people identified) and get the ma er a o m n a me y manner.   But I am not really gone— I have just traded my editors hat for that of the VP’M and am looking foreword to new tasks.
