*** CANCELLED *** After deliberation, the organizing committee has decided to cancel TRA 2021 scheduled for June 14-18, 2021 in Lexington, KY. This was not an easy decision for those of us in Miami Valley Triumphs who have spent countless hours and club funds in planning TRA 2020 only to have to postpone it to 2021 in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. We want those of you who planned or were interested in attending to have some background on why this decision was made.
