Magnolia / Georgia Chapter
The Magnolia / Georgia Chapter serves the Atlanta, Georgia, area.
Regular chapter meetings
The Magnolia Chapter holds numerous general meetings each year, and all baseball fans are welcome to attend.
- The chapter participates in SABR Day, which is usually held in late January. SABR Day is designed to be the one day of the year when every SABR chapter and members have a chance celebrate SABR and welcome new members into the fold.
- The chapter’s “Third Thursday” meeting is held on (obviously) the third Thursday of each month at Taco Mac, 5600 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs, Georgia. Members start gathering around 6:45 p.m. and generally stay until 9:30 – 10:00 or so. There are no formal presentations; just a chance to discuss/argue baseball with fellow members. We also have brain-busting baseball trivia by David Washburn.
- The chapter’s “Fourth Wednesday” get-together is at Matthews Cafeteria, 2299 Main St. in downtown Tucker, GA. This get-together usually starts around 6:00 p.m. and may include brief presentations of some type along with plenty of baseball chat.
- Members also have the opportunity to attend minor league games with other local members and an occasional game at Turner Field, as well as other special events such as the Rickwood Classic in Birmingham in May, the Southern Association Conference, and the Atlanta Sports Hall of Fame induction ceremony each June.
