Charlie Conquergood was a friend to all and a staunch supporter of the Toronto Triumph Club and British Car Day. Charlie passed away on March 9, 2009 from cancer. He was always there to help and happy to do so. He never complained and most of all was well known and loved by many people throughout our hobby. Over the years he touched the hearts – and cars – of many.
Charlie took on many roles within the TTC including a term as President. He was instrumental in developing and computerising the master plan for the lay out of the various marques and models and vendor stalls at British Car Day and for many years would personally be involved in the laying out of the field on the Saturday morning before BCD.
Each year, his friends at the Toronto Triumph Club award a special commemorative plaque in recognition of Charlie’s passing and his unreserved devotion to his wife Sandy, his family and faithful Triumph Spitfire ‘Gumby’.
The recipient of the award is decided by the Executive Committee of the TTC and their decision is based on members who have demonstrated a similar devotion and dedication to the Club and as a reflection of the life values and spirit of friendship, which Charlie Conquergood always shared with us.
At the 37th British Car Day, the Charlie Conquergood Award was presented to long-time member, David Tushingham (Tush) of New Market, ON. Tush has been President of Toronto Triumph Club and Chairman of British Car Day®. He owns mant Triumphs including TR3s, TR4s, TR250 and TR8 many of which he has totally rebuilt. Congratulations to Tush from all of your many friends at the TTC!
