Subs Renewal - Discount Available

The membership subs are once again due.
However, this year we are offering a special discount to our prompt members.
If you pay by/no later than the May monthly meeting, we will give you a £5 discount on your renewal ... so £15 for the year.
It will then return to £20 from the 8th May.
And if no subs have been received by the July meeting, we will assume you unfortunately no longer wish to be a full member.
A list of last year's members can be found on the Members Page.

Subs can be paid by cash at a meeting/event (to Ted Hill), or by cheque:
(Payable to) Invicta Land Rover Club
(Send to) 12 Wilbrough Road, Birchington-On-Sea, Thanet, Kent, CT7 9DY

 Many thanks
John Clark

Tim Letley Cup (TLC) Winner 2018

Ted Hill was voted the Tim Letley Cup winner of 2018.
Here is what he had to say:

"Well what a surprise that was! Thank you all that voted for me. It's nice to feel appreciated but like the other commitee members, we do it because we love our club and not for reward. Thanks again. The trophy is sitting in pride of place in my conservator. I promise to dust it regularly".

More details about the Tim Letley Cup can be found on the About Page.

Jousting For One

prev next
On Sunday 8th July, Invicta Land Rover Club were once again asked to put on a performance at the River County Fete.  Despite being a small show for the village, our club have been known for the traditional live exhibition in the ring; a highlight amongst the dog show, dance schools and village stalls.

Previous entertainment provided by the club in the mini arena have included figure-of-eight chaos driving, dancing in tutus, and balloon jousting. The latter was requested again by the new organisers for the 2018 show.

Unfortunately, only two members turned up this year for the show; The Letleys and Olly. However, Olly's TD5 was poorly with a blown head gasket, so only the Series 3 was able to enter the ring. (Ironic, as previously The Smurfs said J.C. would struggle to make the tight turns).  Determined not to let the locals down, they re-organised the jousting for one, and even got their pic in the local Dover paper.  Well done guys.  Lets hope more club members can support this event next year.

Tim Letley Cup (TLC) Winner  2017

John Clark would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted him as the Tim Letley's Cup 'Club Member of the Year'.

He looks forward to continued fun with the club, and further website and recruitment duties.

More details about the Tim Letley Cup can be found on the About Page.

Mike Turpin to the Rescue

John Clark would like to thank Mike Turpin (on behalf of Damian Young) for helping out at rather short notice for the 'Sci-Fi by the Sea' event at Herne Bay, on Sunday 25th June 2017.

Damian Young, an organiser of the event, found the Invicta Land Rover Club website online and sent John an email during Friday afternoon. He was looking for a close match to the truck in a picture, needed to promote the sale of a Tardis for charity. The truck he had originally booked had to pull out (reasons unknown). After going through the options, John messaged Mike who kindly agreed to step up to the mark for this event.

This modern day version of the classic scene went down well.
Invicta Land Rover Club to the rescue!

See the reason for it here.
