This weekend featured a great drive through North Georgia to North Carolina and the weather could not have been better. The drive started in Alpharetta through Dahlonega, to Blairsville, had lunch at a newly opened Pizza shop in Andrews, and then stopped in Topton, NC to see a Mercedes restoration shop. The GA was represented by Russ & Pat Turner, Ashford Little, Glenn Bell, Tony Lewis and Peter Cronin. There were many Triumphs represented and a huge thank you to Steve Cripps for inviting us.

Match 3 will be played on February 25 at:
Mazzy’s Norcross

Norcross, GA 30092

I invite any who want to join the 3rd Annual GTA Darts Championship Series to join us at Mazzy’s Roswell on February 11, no skill or prior experience necessary. Throwing wrenches is enough.

Darts fly at 7:30 p.m.

Players are scored in sequence of zeroing out in a game of 301 less one point if the player drives his or her Triumph. Each player’s lowest score will be dropped, so if you miss a match, it doesn’t hurt you too badly… unless you are tied with another player at the end of the 5 match series when the tie breaker head to head record kicks in. Join us; it’s a lot of fun! The Champion Tankard is the rotating trophy and is filled at no cost once each match.

GTA Chili Cook-off

It’s time for the annual GTA chili cook-off. Ashford and Catherine Little are hosting it again this year on February 13th
4240 Wickersham Drive NW,
Atlanta, GA 30327

Start time: 6:30
Stop time: TBD

*** Rumor has it that Todd & Billy Ray may be planning another adventure in Atlanta on that date ***

Monthly Meetings

The monthly meetings are the THIRD Tuesday of every month with Odd months being at Mazzy’s Norcross; EVEN months at Mazzy’s Marietta. Our next meeting is Tuesday Feb 16th at Mazzy’s Marietta. Bring your ideas, we’ll start marking up a calendar and making plans on Tuesday night!

Persistent work Triumphs. – Virgil
