NE Fall Meet 'n' Greet 2014

I am aware that many folks are interested in a fall meet. Planning this one is a little tougher due to weather starting to get nastier, school is in session for many, and those who are not in school are working full time generally. Also, there is no event to center this one around.

I am proposing a 2 day mini-meet in mid September. I was thinking September 19th and September 20th if possible. That is a Friday and Saturday.

Other options are bumping it a week later, or doing a Thursday and Friday thing if weekends are hard for many. For me personally, being in retail makes getting weekends off hard.

The idea is to meet somewhere central to most of us. Albany was thrown in the mix, although there is not much exciting to do in Albany. I was maybe thinking southern Adirondacks and having us all camp out overnight, but that can get to be a drive for many. Although this would be fun! This surely will not be the massive meet Carlisle is, but it'd be fun to get a few of us together.

I am open to other ideas, so throw em at me!


Let me know what you all think.

Later on in the month gives me time to prepare the things I am bringing.
I like it.
Thurs-Sun works for me. No class on Friday and I can leave right after my morning class on thursday and run south. I have no camping gear that I can bring though, but I think I can rent from the school, I'll look into it.

As it is for me but it is a worthwhile destination, easier to sell to the better half. Unless it's really more of a NY meet than a NE meet that is being contemplated. NY would be a tough sell since she was there for Americade already this year.

It's SHO time!

I've got a suggestion for that weekend.
Lime Rock Park in NW connecticut is running the Trans-Am racing series that weekend. Tickets are pretty cheap ~$25 for weekend general admission. I've never seen Trans-Am, but have watched many a Rolex Grand Am and ALMS race there. It's my favorite track. Theres a few good places to eat around there and the scenery is AWESOME. Thats the weekend of September 19-20.
More info here:
