We are sorry to have to report the sad passing of Geoff Cooper who passed away at the beginning of the year.
Geoff had been a Club Member for a long time and was a long-serving Committee Member and Director.
As well as the world of Scimitars, Geoff's activities in the world of historic rallies and touring extended across many countries and people and his passing will leave a huge gap for many.
His competition forays in his Sabres and Scimitars were regular features of Slice in the past and he has certainly done a huge amount of flag-waving on behalf of the marque and the Club.
Geoff was always a fount of knowledge on Scimitars in general and electrical problems in particular and his help and assistance will be sadly missed.
Geoff's funeral took place on Thursday 09 February. A good number attended representing his different interests and activities, including many from the RSSOC, and we believe we gave Geoff a good send-off.
This item will remain posted until the end of February, when it will be taken down, but the Forum posts will remain.

The Silverstone Classic at the Silverstone Motor-racing circuit will be held the weekend of 28/29/30 July.
Please note that this is one week later than the provisional dates due to the British Grand Prix being held one week later than the FIA provisional dates.
[Due to massive operational complexities it is impossible to hold the two largest annual events at Silverstone on consecutive weekends.]
Please Contact Kevin Osborne, the Club's Events Coordinator if you wish to exhibit your car and/or attend this event.
