Hey Everybody!!

It’s Craig “CadillacKid” again, getting ready for the 3rd Annual October NorthEast Cadillac Owners Meet and Greet this year. I have teamed up with 2 awesome Cadillac Owners, CTS V Racers, and D3 Representatives, Alan and Marc. All 3 of us were soo bummed to have Aprils Meet PostPoned, But October is right around the Corner! All 3 of us are planning to make this a great day with tons of great cars and great people and D3 GIVE-A-WAYS


Below are Very Important Details about the Meet and the Schedule of Events for this day, Please Read Carefully

Sunday, October 28th, 2012 @ EnglishTown Raceway Park is the site of the meet

$40 to track!! Track open 10am-4pm, Tech closes at 1pm

Please plan on arriving between 8:45am-10:00am the latest (What better day to see a D3 Modified car, run its first ¼ mile stretch EVER!! 650 to the rear wheels.. just saying.) There will be a designated area for us to park together like last year. Let them know when you are at the gates to be directed.


All Cadillac Forum Member Attendees will receive a Cadillac CTS V Racing T-Shirt, so a Head Count is necessary please!

A Cadillac Convoy to Dinner will be around 5:00pm at a local TGI Fridays, Ruby Tuesdays, Hooters, etc…. so everybody is on the road by 7pm as it is a work night

We will have a special area to park together, so that is a good time to meet new members, say hello to returning ones, or just carry on a conversation. A few tents near the parking will be set up as well for us to relax.

Marc, Alan and I have worked on this for a while and this is a meet and greet not to miss!! It will be filled with Cadillac’s, Great People, Great Conversations and Great Prizes and Give-A-Ways.

Please Everybody, Bring your Wife, Children or Friends as this is a Family Event and will be a great way to end a great year before the snow falls on us

Requirements to run at ETown: Helmet that has not expired (they will check), Long pants, current Driver's License, an E Town permanent racing #(cost an additional $5 at the gate and is good all year long). If you have an aftermarket supercharger(or turbo(s)) a fire jacket is required. Tech is tight and if you go fast then 11.50 w/o a bar you be asked to stop racing. Usually there are no warnings.

We had 8/10 cars last year it was a lot of fun and had some good photo opts on the drive. If you are north of that we can just pick you up as we go in to de/nj tp. Thanks Ryan

Whats the point in running anything other than a stock car then? Pulley, intake, tune and you are there!

Ok. I think my 7 year old and I are going to make a day of it. No dinner for us afterwards though.

I have a friend with a Subaru STi Forester (awesome conversion) and a friend with a Lotus Elise. They are interested in taking a ride to Etown too.

I'm out. Atco pushed up it's Buick vs Ford day to Oct 28th, and that race is our car club's last points series race of the season (which I am leading by 10 points). So have fun guys. Take lots of pictures!

luderchris
10-13-12, 07:24 AM
Requirements to run at ETown: Helmet that has not expired (they will check)

Just to clarify, under 14s it needs to be a 2005 or newer Snell rated (not motorcycle) helmet. I'll have to see if I can borrow one from a friend of mine for this.

Chris

10-13-12, 10:37 AM
Here you go regarding helmet requirements. Every driver must wear a helmet regardless of ET.

Right. But over 14s can be a DOT motorcycle helmet. Under 14s, which I would sure hope we all are, has to be a SNELL 2005 (or newer) helmet.

Didn't know if everyone knows the difference.

I think it's going to rain on us. Not looking good right now. Let's hope it holds off.

Purple87SS
10-25-12, 12:47 PM
Is there a rain date if it does get cancelled?

luderchris
10-25-12, 03:37 PM
Yep. Looks like 70-80% chance of rain at Etown in Sunday. I won't be heading up if its raining.

I hope we can reschedule for sometime before winter hits.

CadillacKid12
10-25-12, 05:15 PM
i will post sat with a rain date i will call paul and ask what is better

im looking into NOV 17th so we still have time to move plans i think NOV 4th would be too soon

luderchris
10-25-12, 05:54 PM
11/17 is a Saturday. Why not 11/18?

CadillacKid12
10-26-12, 11:13 AM
everybody stay posted on the updates tomorrow with the storm, it seems to be that we ARE GOING TO BE OK! i am still tracking it and making a decision tomorrow night on SATURDAY

right now it is just 60% of showers and the projected path shows that it will not hit NJ until tues am with 80mph winds.

everybody stay posted and i will post some more as time goes by, i myself am going to take the trip. i think it will still be in the atlantic on sunday

worst comes to worse i will post a rain date next week after i call englishtown, looking to be 11/18 right now

CadillacKid12
10-26-12, 02:46 PM
yes i did hxc i got your pm

http://www.weather.com/weather/hurricanecentral/tracker/2012/sandy (storm looks pretty far out on oct 28th still. but i think the rain is comming from a storm front from the west

i do have etown calling me tomorrow on what they think is the best option as they have NJ weather forecasts that i do not have

i will talk to paul and alan and see what i can do for make ups, the dates he listed include next saturday november 3rd ( i figured that is too short of notice ) so to give you all time to re schedule i am going to look at either november 11th november 25th both sundays or december 2nd

the final call will be made once i hear from etown tomorrow

CadillacKid12
10-27-12, 10:39 AM
TO EVERYBODY,
Very upset and sad to announce that tomorrows 3rd annual meet and greet has been postponed to a later date due to the inclement weather from hurricane sandy that is approaching us.
The current forecast for Sunday, October 28th is 70% of rain with winds of 23mph for the day and 100% of rain at night with winds at 18mph with a High Wind Warning and Coastal Flood Warning in Effect
I will be talking to Englishtown this week to talk about a Rain Date that will be coming up,
We talked yesterday and he did say we can all come on Saturday, Nov 3rd but that is too close in advance for all of the members
THE FUTURE RAIN DATE THAT WE ARE WORKING ON is SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25th and/or SUNDAY, DECEMBER 2nd
Please stay posted in days to come for further information
THANK YOU TO ALL 53 MEMBERS THAT I HAD COMING FOR THIS EVENT this is almost DOUBLED NUMBERS AGAIN FROM LAST YEAR!!!! And I hope with the help of everybody we can have all MEMBERS come again and even more cars head up next month to this event!!!
Please email me with any questions
Cpotter91@aol.com

Again please stay posted to the forum in days to come to check for the official RAIN DATE THREAD!

luderchris
10-27-12, 04:21 PM

Oh man, that sucks, I will be away on business for both of the scheduled rain dates.

luderchris
10-30-12, 11:47 PM
I say we go with Dec 2nd since Nov 25th is on Thanksgiving weekend. Many people travel or have family visiting that Sunday. Just a thought.
