The brats, burgers and soft drinks will be provided by the GTA. Alcohol is prohibited at this park, so if you are going to bring something, this park, so if you are going to bring something, please bring a koozie and be discrete. We could use some help with a few sides and snacks. Please watch for the eVite that will be coming out shortly. We ask that you RSVP for this event so we know how much food to purchase.
 

FREE FOOD… only if you are hungry & like Triumphs! Tuesday, September 28, 2021

8 vehicles joined in on the fun!  20 picnic participants enjoyed perfect Fall weather for the 2021 inaugural GTA Mountain Division’s “Ride to the Picnic”.  After a 1.5 hour spirited Hy 60 ride from Dahlonega to McCaysville’s Roy Park Horse Shoe Bend Park, all GTA’ers found their tummy’s full after a stunning Jayne Berry set-up and BBQ. Many brought delicious side dishes and desserts. Joe Garcia’s Triumph supporter Jayne arrived at 10 AM for a noon GTA group arrival. Perfect timing!
Clean restrooms, covered Pavillion, table scapes, and a flowing Toccoa river made it a memorable Triumph event.
 
In classic Triumph fashion, we had a casualty. Nelson Berdecia’s awesome 1961 Black TR3B ate its fan belt on HY 400 at Windward Parkway. He darn near made it! He got safely home in good spirits, several hours later. McDonough to Dahlongea is quite a-ways you know…especially when your overdrive becomes inop and your at 4K revs because your late! Boom, belts a-flying!
 
Once the word gets out regarding what a good time we had, we are sure to have a larger group next year. Come and join us!

Annual BBQ Cook-off

 

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 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 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.

JUST IN

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.
