PMGR Invite Saturday, March 6, 2021
On Saturday, March 6th, there will be a drive and picnic lunch starting in Marietta. From there to the Smith-Gilbert Gardens and ending at the Dry County Brewery in Kennesaw.
The itinerary is:
– Meet around 9:00AM at the Marietta Diner for breakfast. Parking can be a bit dicey but the Diner has two overflow lots. If you don’t want to chance the Diner, there are a few other places nearby:
· Waffle House – Roswell St and Frey’s Gin Rd SE (by I-75)
· Waffle House – Hwy 41 and Barclay Circle, south of the Diner
· Red Eyed Mule – 430 S Marietta Parkway SE (ex-Huddle House, is very good but limited parking)
· IHOP – Hwy 41 near the Diner
· McD – Hwy 41 south of the South Loop
· Chick-Fil-A – next to the Sam’s Club which is just north of the Diner
– The driver’s meeting will be held in the Sam’s Club parking lot just north of the Diner around 10:00.
– The drive will take us through Marietta, past the National Cemetery and through the Kennesaw Mountain Battle Field to the Smith-Gilbert Gardens. The drive should be about 30 minutes.
– We will depart the Gardens about 1145 for the Dry County Brewing Co. for lunch and libations. You will need to bring your own food. The brewery has outdoor picnic tables and some seating inside. For those who want to spend some more time in Kennesaw, here is a sampling of other places of interest:
· Southern Museum of the Civil War and Locomotive History, 2829 Cherokee St NW, Kennesaw, GA
· Wildman’s Civil War Surplus (museum), 2879 S Main St NW, Kennesaw, GA
· Lazy Guy Distillery, 2950 Moon Station Rd NW, Kennesaw, GA
· Frozen Cow Creamery, 2870 Cherokee St NW, Kennesaw, GA
· Kennesaw National Battlefield. If you’ve never been there it’s worth taking some time to visit.
RSVP is requested, as I will need an approximate count not later than Tuesday to give to the Gardens and the brewery. If you will be joining us at the Diner, I will also need to know that as well.
Please send the RSVPs to Erich Starzinger at email@example.com or call my cell phone at 404-663-5352.
In case of inclement weather, the event will be re-scheduled for April.

Drive your Triumph Day, February 10, 2021
Dear Fellow Triumph Owner,
One thing that has remained constant in this crazy pandemic year, is the pleasure to social distance by taking a drive in your Triumph. So, with that in mind, it’s time to plan a social distance activity for Drive Your Triumph Day, February 10, 2021.
My name is Rye Livingston and I’m with the Triumph Travelers Sports Car Club in Northern California, which is celebrating our 62nd anniversary.
As you may remember a number of years ago, I encouraged members of our club to drive their Triumphs on February 10th, to celebrate Sir John Black’s Birthday, the man who organized Standard’s purchase of Triumph after the war, and went on to make the cars we enjoy driving today.
Last year I received about 350 photos from all over the world: Scotland, Ireland, the UK, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Uruguay, Netherlands, Switzerland, Finland, Canada, Holland, Czech Republic, and of course all over the USA. I’m hoping we can increase that number this year!
The concept is straightforward. On Wednesday, February 10th, go for a drive in your Triumph. Take a scenic drive on a country road or out to lunch, to the market, to work, wherever. Go for a drive alone or in a big group from your local Triumph Club. Take your spouse, buddy, child, grandchild or your dog; then take a photo. The photo is mainly of the car, and the owner if possible, ideally in front of a cool spot, landmark, scenic view or in your driveway. If it’s the middle of the winter where you live and your car is in hibernation, or in the middle of a restoration, take a photo of it anyway.
Next step is to email a high-resolution photo to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with some basic information: owner’s name, year and model of car, and place photo was taken (city, state, country). The photos will then be published not only in our club newsletter, but also in USA’s national magazine: Vintage Triumph Registry, and on the Drive Your Triumph Day website: https://driveyourtriumphday.shutterfly.com
Please feel free to send this on to other Triumph Clubs you may know of, and your club Activities Chairman and Newsletter editor. Last year a few Standard Clubs joined in too, which is great.
Be sure to contact me with any questions you may have, and thank you in advance for getting the message out to your members and friends to Drive Their Triumphs on February 10th.
John Black was the force behind Standard’s purchase of Triumph after WWII. He is responsible for the restart of the company that has produced our amazing cars as the buildings from the pre-war time were totally bombed. We celebrate his birthday every year with the international Drive Your Triumph Day. On Wednesday, 10 February, the GTA will hold a lunch at club member Tony Tiberia’s Sprig Restaurant. We’ll meet at 12:30 and line the cars up for a photo after we place our orders. Please show up and fellowship with your Triumph family!
RSVP to Joe Earnest on 678 778 6175 with name and car model, colour, and year.
