: Tri-state area meet!



blunted
03-24-09, 11:24 AM
Alright guys.. I'm gonna take a poll for what day we should do this. I'm thinking sooner than later or else everyone will just forget and it'll go nowhere.
If not that many tri-staters show interest, it'll become just a NYC meet in one of the boroughs.

I'm gonna say the same spot as last time (for now)
LOCATION: HOOTERS - RT 17 Paramus, NJ 07652

Let's try to get something going here and not have it fall apart like every other time. I dont care if I end up drinking a beer by myself and admiring my own car, but i'm sticking to it. :thumbsup:

This is a perfect example of why I stopped trying. I love to do these little meets, have some lunch, make new friends but no one ever seems to be interested.

I'm tempted to drive to NJ because it seems they never work out in my area either. I'm just debating whether it's worth a 5 hour drive or not..I'd prefer to get one a little closer.

May I suggest a meeting place with a view for pics (not saying Hooters doesn't have views, but of the different kind)?
Like Long Island City or Hoboken type city skylines?
Just a suggestion, either way I'm down to meet.

I think I could do the 18th, but I will be at Carlisle the weekend of the 25th, but the dates in May look good right now. I think a meet is a cool idea.

Most of you probably don't care but I'm not driving to LI for a meet. Hooters is about 1.5 hrs for me. LI is twice that at least.

Long Island City is just west of Manhattan in Queens, it is not in "Long Island". It is the first city over the 59th Street Bridge.

I am fine with that spot because it is only a few minutes from me. But it may not be a great place to meet, I cant think of any place in particular with parking that can accommodate a decent size group. Unless someone already has a place in mind that I cant think of. But we need to decide on a spot!

That's not a bad idea either.. got any particular spots in mind? I can imagine there would be a good East NY/Hoboken place with a sick skyline.

I went with hooters since its a big parking lot with beer/food.

04-02-09, 12:48 AM
Those who don't want to hit the track can watch. It's fun to often observe friend's/acquaintances in these things. Good size lot for meeting up and plenty of opportunities for pictures.
Restaurants all over the place to grab a bit before or after if the track alone isn't enough.

I was sketchy about meeting at some weird place....this sounds awsome, if we all can do this raceway im down anyday!!...I've never been to a meet, is this something we should get a hotel for??...

codewize
04-02-09, 11:06 AM
NO need to be sketchy at all. I've met with some of these guys before. We actually had a combined meet with another forum group.

No Hotel. It's usually just an afternoon thing. Meet around 10 - 11 or so. Hang out, have some lunch talk for a bit more. I think they usually disband around 3 or so depending on what's going on.

Now, if we meet a a track where there's some functions going on I'm sure that could turn into a longer day.

Either way it's a good time. That's why I get aggravated at how difficult it is to put together a meet. we have like 88,000 members on this forum and we can't get 10 or 20 in the same place at the same time.

04-04-09, 01:25 PM
guys I'm actually considering heading down for this..its about 4 hours for me to englishtown. Whether or not I go depends on 1) the date (later is better), and 2)what will actually be going on. I'd need to know how long the day will be and what the activities will be to see if its worth the drive. I'd love to see everyone's Caddy...I don't necessarily think of my 00 Deville as a car to race the v's with, but if there were enough other cars parked for me to admire, it might be worth going anyway. So, I'll wait to see some more info before deciding..
