PMGR drive invite, Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Join us for a scenic 2.5 hour 118 mile drive (one way) from the Dawsonville’s iHop to Georgia’s Cloudland Canyon State Park (https://gastateparks.org/CloudlandCanyon). This is the same route as the Georgia Triumph Association’s recent Polar Bear Run conducted on December 28, 2019 and will be led by Jim Doran.

We’ll take Dawson Forest road west to Highway 9, then head north to Dawsonville then north on Burt Creek road connecting with Highway 136. We will follow 136 the rest of the way to the park. For those of you who do not want to drive to the iHop, you are welcome to join us in route. Nature breaks at the Talking Rock Park and the Flying J truck stop at Highway 136 & I-75 (Resaca exit #320).

Meet at the iHop for breakfast/coffee with wheels up at 8:30 am sharp. With a couple of nature break stops, we should arrive at the park at noon. Once at the park, we can drive to the canyon rim viewing point for some great photo opportunities. There is a $5.00 admission charge to the park. Lunch at the Mtn Top Café, 1.9 miles from the park’s entrance. The address is 12136 GA Hwy 136. 706-398-1749. The return route is the reverse of our in-bound route or one of your own choosing.

As usual I will watch the weather and make a decision on Monday afternoon and contact all who have RSVP’d for the drive and lunch.

Please RSVP for the restaurant head count to Jim Doran.

Drive Your Trumph Day, February 10th

Are you ready for Drive Your Triumph Day, Monday, 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? It’s just one month away.

This celebratory drive has been building momentum every year. Last year I received close to 350 photos from all over the world. This year is going to be a bit more of a challenge as February 10th falls on Monday.  As tempting as it may be to plan a drive for the weekend, we’re going to keep true to the day, and please submit photos only taken on Monday, February 10th, 2020.

The concept is straightforward. On 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, where ever. Go for a drive alone or in a big group with 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 a cool spot, landmark, scenic view, in front of the hardware store 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 in the garage.  Some winter photos I’ve received have the garage door open with the car tucked under a cover, and snow outside.  Have fun with it, and participate.

Next step is to email a high-resolution photo to driveyourtriumphday@gmail.com, 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 and Standard Clubs you may know of, and your club Activities Chairman and Newsletter editor. Last year a few Standard Clubs joined in too, which is all good.

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.

GTA Christmas/Holiday Party Saturday, December 14, 5:30pm – 8:00p

Tis time for the annual Georgia Triumph Association Christmas/Holiday/Bark at the Moon Party. Abe & Susan Cheij will be hosting this year. By now most of you should know the drill… the GTA will be furnishing the main course aka meats, but we need y’all to chip in for salads, sides, desserts. The infamous GTA gift exchange will continue as well so bring a modest gift (either male or female) of your choosing and participate in the fun. And if you are really lucky then you might win the award everyone covets.

Where: 139 Long Shadow Dr, Alpharetta, GA 30004, USA
