13th Annual Kassow Kruise, Saturday, December 5, 2020
Our yearly Kassow Kruise is right around the corner coming up next month on Saturday, December 5th (weather permitting). With all the stuff going on right now with the pandemic and recent storms that hit north Georgia, we are planning on a shortened version of our drive. We are working on a route to Jasper Georgia with visiting Vintage Motorcar Restorations (770 East Church Street, Jasper 30143). Ray Morgan, owner, always has some interesting projects that he is working on – as he says “restoring America one car at a time”. From there driving to one of the local restaurants in the area.
If anyone is interested, please let me know at your earliest convenience (no later than Friday, November 27th) so have an idea of a head count. Will plan on doing physical distancing (especially during driving), wearing a mask (not required on an open road), and using hand sanitizers (after touching stuff). I think everyone knows the drill by now but we do want to be safe. I know some folks are cautious not wanting to get out, others do want to get out – perhaps a drive is just what the doctor ordered! At any rate let’s all keep safe.
Meeting Place: Pep Boys Auto Service & Tire, 4290 Bells Ferry Road NW, Kennesaw 30144 (parking lot in front of their store). This is in Harbor Freight / Publix Shopping Center on the right side of Bells Ferry Road, northwest of I-575, Exit 4. For those that would like to eat before, in front of the shopping center is a Waffle House.
Meeting Time: Saturday, November 5th between 9:30 and 10 am, leave promptly at 10, fueled up ready to go (Shell gas station available across street if needed).
Driving in all type vehicles are invited, especially those that actually run!
Bill Nagel Cell: 404-319-1104
Destination this year will be Blue Ridge GA and the route will entail 85 miles of very scenic roads with one potty stop. There are a multitude of restaurants in Blue Ridge and surrounding area and there may even be a side visit to Grumpy Old Men Brewery.
We again are raising money for A.L.S. and donations while not required are very welcome.
Weather alternate date January 2nd.

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.
