The date: Sunday, September 17 @ 8am.
This year, this event will be open to only Lotus people AND friends of Lotus people. We will not tie up with any other group. I believe this event is more fun and more intimate this way so it is not open to the general public. I have this posted as an private event on FB so I can keep a tight tab on the number of folks attending. But not all people use FB (and for good reasons) so I have created this thread.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AS SOME OF THE WORDING HAS CHANGED OR DIAL 0 NOW AND WE WILL CONNECT YOU TO THE NEXT AVAILABLE REPRESENTATIVE (don't hold your breath).
Like last year, we will meet at the Lake Welch Parking Lot in Harriman State Park. I will post a map for those who don't know or don't recall the Lake Welch Parking Lot.
We will do the typical routes we have done in the past for the morning then our usual run up to the Perkins Memorial Observatory for the obligatory Photo Op!
And then at 1pm (always my favorite part of the day!) we will head up to see Geoff @ Barnstormers BBQ for lunch and libations (bring on the Chili!!).
For those who are up to it, the after lunch ride will be a few passes through the Storm King's picturesque curves! If you haven't seen this road, you should do it at least once. Steve took Todd last year and if anybody is interested in joining Steve on this afternoon jaunt, I suggest you talk to Todd first!
Last year we had a really nice showing and we were able to split up into 3 groups which I thought worked out pretty good and we will do that again as needed.
Please show up promptly and with as full a tank as possible. Have a walkie-talkie at your fingertips if possible. A "navigator" is always nice. No, it doesn't have to be a Lotus. Yes, I will supply my cell if you need it, just send me a message.
See below for the link to our starting point which is in the Lake Welch parking lot.
