I'm also a new member and owner, about 10 mins into PA from the Trenton, NJ area. RI is a hike, but I do enjoy the Mystic, CT area. It would be easier to sell it to my wife, too, as opposed to an "all Caddies all the time" weekend. I am also a big fan of meeting at a dealer.
Unfortunately, I never know where I'm going to be working (US or otherwise), but the general rule is that I'm home weekends. I'd hate to play a part in pulling this closer to NYC only to be stuck in Europe and have to miss it, so I think Mystic is a little fairer to the NJ/PA "crowd".
This is my first day on the forum, so I'm trying to find the poll.
Legend..I actually love the idea of having something more extensive like that..but I'm going to agree like you said that we maybe keep it simple at least for the first one since we haven't done this yet..and then maybe from there talk about doing something bigger afterwards. Honestly I'd like to eventually make this a fairly regular thing if everyone else wanted to..maybe once every month or two months..or something like that. But for now I'm just looking forward to this first one.
EasternPA..welcome to the forum. I personally have no problem going to Mystic or another CT location. (Mystic is actually only about 10 mins from RI actually...I have some friends there so I'm down there periodically..not to mention the nearby casinos). We're planning to run a poll on the location after we determine the date, so stay tuned for that.
So far we have 7 people for Sunday August 2 which is the most as of now. Legend and Trickstr..you guys didn't click that one...is that date definitely a no-go for you guys or is it a possibility? I'd really like to be able to include as many people as possible, so let us know if 8/2 might be manageable. If not we'll see if other people can manage other dates and go from there.
I live right in richmond off of exit 3 and i will be down for a meet somewhere near mystic seeing as it is not far away from me. And i could definitely do it on 8/2 and i possibly may know another person that might want to show up. But definitely count me in!
Another thought of a spot for a meet, not sure if it is right for this group, is New England Dyno. http://www.nedyno.com/ is their site. For $65 a head (min of 10 people) they will feed the group BBQ as well as you would get 3-5 runs on the Dyno. Its In mass on the RI border.
