Manuel’s Tavern will welcome us back!

Fellow members:

As some of you may know, this club has a history with Manuel’s.  Our club’s first meeting place was Manuel’s Tavern back in 1985, when we were known as the Atlanta Chapter of TIOC/BIMA (Triumph International Owners’ Club/British International Motorcycle Association).  I joined the club in 1987, and we changed the name about 1990.

Manuel’s has been completely renovated while retaining its original character.  Check out their website at

I took the liberty of contacting Margie Maloof at Manuel’s Tavern to see if they could accommodate our meeting:  Margie’s response:

“I’ve got you in the book for Wednesday, April 12 from 7:30-9.  It looks like the next couple of months will work out, and then I’ll have to check for July on.  I’ll be happy to check when I get home.  I’ve got you in the eagle’s nest for your meetings.  …. Incidentally, welcome back!!!!!”

Who could as for a better welcome?  As you may know, Manuel’s has ample parking, but no motorcycle specific parking area.  I’m going to try to work on that.

We will be taking a vote at our March 8 meeting to determine whether we will relocate our meeting back to Manuel’s.  I think its a good fit, its close to downtown, Little Five Points and Virginia Highlands.  I think this is where our new blood could come from.

Please try to attend the March 8 meeting at the Crossing in Norcross.

“The chess board is the world, the pieces are the phenomena of the universe, the rules of the game are what we call the laws of Nature. The player on the other side is hidden from us. We know that his play is always fair, just and patient. But we also know, to our cost, that he never overlooks a mistake, or makes the smallest allowance for ignorance.”
