Welcome!

Welcome to the internet home of the TVR Car Club of North America, a 501(c)7 non-profit organization chartered in the state of Ohio. We are an organization supported by dues paying members who are charged with promoting the TVR marque, driving our cars as often as possible, and having a good time doing so!


Final Updates for Woodwork

Something new this year for Woodwork. The front desk at the host hotel will have your goody bags/packets. PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO STOP BY THE FRONT DECK AND PICK THEM UP. Your car number will be the number assigned to you by Carlisle on your Import Nationals window sticker. We will have extra packets at the showfield for folks who are only coming for the Saturday show, but please pick your packet up at the hotel if you are getting in Thursday/Friday. Thanks and see you all soon!.


Malicious Rumors

It has come to the attention of the webmaster and several board members that someone is spreading a rumor that TVRCCNA president Tony Hess does not want to be President anymore. We have checked with Tony, who confirmed — if he didn't want to be President then his name wouldn't be on the ballot. Please disregard this rumor and correct anyone who tells it to you: all of the candidates on the ballot are there because they wanted to run for the office they are listed for. All of the candidates self-nominated. Let's have a clean election folks, this is supposed to be about the love of the marque.


Time to Renew your Membership

Just a reminder that all 2014 memberships expired on 31 March 2015. If you haven't paid your 2015 dues then you will not be able to vote in next month's election, so get those renewals in now.


NEW ELECTION OF OFFICERS IS AT HAND!

It's time to get ready for elections for the 4 elected officer positions (President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer) in the TVR Car Club of North America.

This will be the first election held under our new constitution (ratified in 2010). In addition, we are looking to spread the Appointed officer roles (Regalia Coordinator, Membership Chair, Webmaster, TVR Times Editor, etc.) among more club members. The current constitution states that voting must take place at the Annual Meeting of the TVRCCNA, which will occur during the 2015 Out of the Woodwork Banquet on May 16, 2015 in Carlisle, PA.

Nominations: Elected and Appointed officer positions are self-nominated and the submissions form closed on 31 March.

Voting: For members attending the meeting, they may vote in person. For members not attending the meeting, there will be an absentee ballot process. Ballots will be mailed to all eligible members mid-April, and need to be received by the Secretary no later than May 13th. Please note that in order to vote (either in person, or by ballot), you have to be a current paid up member for the 2015/2016 membership year – so please renew your membership in good time. Members attending the meeting may renew their memberships up until the commencement of the meeting to be eligible to vote. For members not attending the meeting, we will make every attempt to provide ballots to members renewing after the mid-April mailing, but to guarantee your ability to receive a mailed ballot, your 15/16 membership renewal must be received by the membership chair no later than May 1st.

Finally, the club cannot operate without the dedication of the volunteers who serve in officer roles, so we thank you in advance for your willingness to serve.

   —Club Secretary, Andy Gear

So why do you have this page?

If you've found our page you're probably here for one of two reasons: 1) you're a TVR owner looking for a community of owners willing to help each other and have fun, or 2) you heard the name TVR or saw one and wanted to learn more about these rare British cars. If you're part of the first group, why not sign up for a membership and then check out our technical articles available to club members. If you're part of the second group, you can start with "What's a TVR?" and work your way through some information on the various models and history of TVR in North America. Either way, thanks for checking out our site and we hope you find what you're looking for.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


President's Corner

Well, it's April 1st and it's snowing here like it was the middle of winter. I'm a snow guy and I have had enough. It's time for Spring, warm weather and top down drives. As most of you already know this is an election year for the Club. Please vote, there will be absentee ballots for those who will not be attending Out of the Woodwork 2015 as well as the regular vote as part of the banquet on Saturday night. Also just a reminder about the hotel, use the link the hotel provided when making your reservations. As you know the Club has waved the fee for Woodwork, but the banquet and Carlisle Productions fee is the same as last year. There will be a schedule of the days activities on line and in the Times. As in years past we need items for our auction and helpers to stuff envelopes Friday night and to help with parking the cars at the show grounds. This year I would like to see the cars in order of the year they were manufactured, from early TVR to late TVR. Please work with the Woodworkers to get this done On another note I have finally heard back from Mr Les Edgar the current owner of TVR Ltd. He said he unable to attend Woodwork at this time. So I guess that means that he might attend a future Woodwork. I am still working on having a TVR related guest for Woodwork 15 and if it happens it will be on the web site as well as the Facebook page. As always if I can be of any TVR related help to anyone, please don't hesitate to call or email me.
