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. The 2022 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!

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.
Eagle Ridge has numerous luxuriously appointed hotel-style rooms and suites available in the main lodge. In addition, there are 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.
All of these accommodations on the resort property will go quickly, so please don’t delay in making your reservations and registering for VTR 2022. 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!
For sponsorship opportunities, contact Matt Krajniak at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 630.903.9902.
We'd like to thank our sponsors--without them it would be difficult or impossible to deliver a quality event to our attendees! You'll see their logos posted below. 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!
BUT FIRST... To make registration easier make sure you have the following:
Information on your VTR membership -- If you don't know your VTR number, please see your Vintage Triumph Register mailer insert at the top of your address or go to the VTR website. Sign in, and under "Your Subscription," click on "Edit Profile." Your membership number will be under your name. If you click the far left box of the menu bar you can find your membership expiration date.
You'll need a credit card to register online, so have the one you wish to use handy.
Finally, if you're registering a car you'll need your insurance information and VIN.
