Our 2012 April Club Meeting was 29 April at the Press Box in Grapevine.

451 E. Northwest Highway (Dooley on the north side of NW Hwy) at the old Los Cabos restaurant.

The owner, Tom Melesky is a Ducati rider and was one of our instructors when we did the Eurosport track day at Cresson a while back. He has a sports bar downtown and just opened another in Grapevine. It's on Dooley on the north side of 26. The bar is roomy inside, has a little patio out front, and he can cordon off parking for us.


The meeting was well attended with everyone taking advantage of Tom's hospitality.  The food was great and the beer cold and flowing.  Who could ask for anything more.

Chris Parry started the meeting precisely at 2pm.  Upcoming events were discussed at length.  The next being the All British and European Car Day at the same location as last year at White Rock Lake.  Two weeks later is BMOA's New Ulm rallye which is always well attended by the NTNOA.  One week following that is our May club meeting at Bruce Davidson's shop - Boxers by Bruce in Pantego, TX.

The club needs volunteers to help transport the raffle bike and associated equipment to White Rock Lake and help sell raffle bike tickets.  Anyone interested should contact Chris at Chris (at) NTNOA.org.

Founding member Dave Howe was involved in a serious motorcycle accident while riding in North Caroline with members of the Motorcyclist Cafe forum.  He was flown to the trauma center in Ashville, NC.  His progress can be followed by clicking - Motorcyclist Cafe.


Subject: Press Box Weekend Update
Tonight at the Press Box Grill in Grapevine we're welcoming Sonny Collie to our stage. Sonny comes highly recommended by one of our regular musicians, Aaron Burton the Blues Man, so I'm really looking forward to listening to his music. He's not seen our place yet, but we'll try and get Sonny comfortable with the patio.

Press Box Grill will be participating in the Great Taste of Grapevine at the DFW Hilton on Thursday April 19th, along with 35 other Grapevine restaurants. Tickets are $25 when purchased ahead of time, $30 the day of the event. You get to sample the best stuff from each restaurant and get one complimentary wine or beer along with a souvenir glass and plate. We'll be putting some of our famous Jalapeño Pork Chops on some skewers along with some other dishes the kitchen is working on. The Great Taste of Grapevine is from 5:30p - 8:30p on Thursday April 19 at the DFW HILTON.

I’m very happy to tell you that Press Box-Dallas is nominated for Best Sports Bar in D Magazine’s “Best of Big D 2012”. PBG - Dallas features the same great food as Grapevine, so a vote for one is a vote for both! Please help us get the word out to EVERYONE to VOTE FOR PRESS BOX!!! And here is where you vote!: http://surveys.dmagazine.com/bestofbigd2012-nightlife

Lastly, for the motorbikers out there, the North Texas Norton Owners Association (NTNOA) will be having their monthly meeting at Press Box Grill Grapevine on Sunday April 29th. I'm told there will be many fine examples of British moto-sculputure at the meeting. There will be a Motorcycle Only parking area, everyone is welcome, they even said I could ride up on a Ducati! Folks will start dropping in around noon, with the official start set for 2:00p.

See you on the Patio!
Tom Melesky, Owner - Press Box Grill
