The Saint Louis Triumph Owners Association (SLTOA) is a group of British car enthusiasts who come together under the Triumph Marque. We enjoy good food, the occasional brew and/or cocktail, good company, and good drives.
Please look around our website to see what we have to offer the Triumph community and if you can find the time visit us at one of our monthly meetings or other gatherings which are posted in our events area, by all means come on by!
Vistors are always welcome!
- Veterans Drive CANCELLED!
Due to the recent snowfall and forecast weather conditions over the weekend, SLTOA has cancelled the Veterans Day Run scheduled for this Sunday, 18 November. With Thanksgiving approaching, there is no fallback date. Anyone who's made the drive in past years knows a good portion of the route includes backwoods two-lane roads above Bluff Road, which will probably be "challenging" at the least, following a couple of days of melt/freeze. Also, more substantial roads such as Bluff Road, MO 61 and IL 3 through Evansville into Chester will have plenty of chemicals and/or salt applied.
On past drives we have collected donations for veterans organizations and this year we had planned for anything collected to be sent to the Semper Fi Fund. Feel free to contribute to the veteran's organization of your choice if you are so inclined.
Sign-ups for the Annual Christmas party is open. Be sure to make your reservations early to get reduced pricing.

- The 5th annual SLTOA Fall Colours Tour was fabulous. Ed Kaizer again planned the drive up the Great River Road and again did another great job. There was something for everyone: fun roads, beatiful vistas, a winery, a stop at Principia College, Eckert's, Elsah, a Flea Market, and a good meal and fellowship at the Loading Dock in Grafton. It was a great fall day and this year we actually saw some color in the trees. A wonderful day and great event. You can view and download photos of the event from the photo link on this page.

6th Annual SLTOA Veterans Drive
Sunday, November 18, 2017
CANCELLED! See announcements section above...
This is our 6th year for this event. This is a very important event for our group in that it has a purpose. This is the only event that we ask for voluntary, but not required, contributions to participate. These funds will be donated to the Semper Fi Fund, a great veterans organization.
Other British car clubs, prospective members of SLTOA, and anyone who wants to honor our veterans are invited to attend. This is a great drive that in years past featured our SLTOA Music Director/Bagpipe Instructor Dave Massey kicking off the drive with his rendition of all our armed services anthems.
Per Mark Morgan, as of Veterans Day (11/11), the 10 day forecast is for good driving conditions though it will be cool, starting out in the 20's but getting up the high 30's on the drive. Bundle up, roll up the windows, put down the top, fire up the heat.
We will meet at the the State Farm office building behind the McDonalds in Columbia, Illinois, at 10 a.m. and travel south into Illinois. Route details are not yet finalized. Click here for a link to the departure point:
