Multiple Days of Triumphant Bliss
The Vintage Triumph Register (VTR) is a North American Triumph car club of over 2,800 Triumph owners and enthusiasts supporting and showcasing all models of Triumphs. VTR has supported a national convention hosted by one of its chapter clubs every year since 1976, and 2020's event promises to be the best yet--carrying the tradition into a new decade. This year's convention will be hosted by the Illinois Sports Owner Association (ISOA), one of the largest and most active Triumph clubs in the country. Compete in an autocross challenge, participate in a funkhana event, drive in a road rallye on our carefully selected back roads, and even learn about your car in our expert-led technical sessions. However you choose to spend your week, you'll get to enjoy it in the company of great people who are just as Triumph-crazy as you are. See you in Galena!
We've just added a new page with links to helpful information, such as the VTR's definitions for various car classes and rules for our silent auction. We're adding information all the time, so ask us if there's something you don't see!

AS OF FEBRUARY 18TH, THERE ARE VERY FEW SINGLE BEDROOM VILLAS AVAILABLE FOR RESERVATIONS, SO BOOK NOW! YOU COULD ALSO CONSIDER SHARING A TWO-BEDROOM, TWO-BATHROOM VILLA--PLENTY OF THESE ARE STILL OPEN, AND THE MATH WORKS OUT IN YOUR FAVOR. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION!
Tucked among The Galena Territory's 6,800 rolling acres of pristine woodlands and open countryside, the world-class Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa offers “country elegant” hotel accommodations and villas amid breathtaking scenery, championship golf courses, and miles of hiking trails--all just minutes from the quaint shopping and dining of Galena, Illinois.
While the hotel style rooms in the main lodge are sold out for VTR 2020, there are still plenty of villas available located on the resort property, close to the main lodge. These spacious villas come with full kitchens, an outdoor patio complete with a grill, and free shuttle service to the main lodge. Importantly, the single bed villas are available at the same low negotiated rate as the hotel rooms. Additionally, there are two bedroom, two bath villas available for sharing at a cost that is actually less per person than the cost of the other room options when split with friends or family.
All of these accommodations on the resort property will go quickly, so please don’t delay in making your reservations and registering for VTR 2020. Those who book accommodations and register for the convention before April 1 will receive $25 worth of “Eagle Ridge Bucks” to spend at the resort.

Join us in Galena
During the last Ice Age, the glaciers that once covered the Midwest missed the region known as the "driftless area." This means that in Galena, the surface was never eroded away or buried by glacial deposits. You'll find a midwestern area surprisingly covered in bluffs, narrow valleys, and spectacular driving roads (though technically the roads aren't a geological development...).
Not interested in geology? Galena is filled with rich history. It was known for lead production (the word "Galena" actually comes from the Latin word for "lead") and was an important town during the Civil War. You'll find landmarks such as Grant's home and historic hotels including DeSoto House--where we're planning a breakfast run.
You'll also find award-winning golf courses, plenty of fine dining and shopping opportunities; and you can't go for a drive without tripping over curvy roads and gorgeous views! You won't want to miss this event!

We'd like to thank our sponsors--without them it would be difficult or impossible to deliver a quality event to our attendees! Please follow the links to their websites, and make sure to visit them during your time at Eagle Ridge. You'll find that they're just as nuts about Triumphs as you are, and they can be quite a valuable resource to keep your car running as it should!
