VA Meet?!

What's up guys and gals. The "meet season" is coming to a close soon, before you know it, it will be winter and too damn cold to be standing outside admiring cars. I was thinking about planning a VA meet....a lot of us didn't get to go to Carlisle, etc. and it would just be neat to see fellow Di.net members before it gets too cold.

Somewhere in Richmond/Central Virginia area seems like a good plan. It would give all members a place to go to, and also is not too far for any NC/SC members who MAY want to make the trip (Also for you MD/PAers).

Right now this is basically just a "feeler" thread, want to see how many people are interested before making anything concrete! Don't want a repeat of May where what was supposed to be a 5 person meet end up as Glenn and myself going, "Uh.....where's everybody else?"

Official Information:

The meet will be in the parking lot next to Putt-Putt off Midlothian Turnpike, on September 30th.

Directions:

approaching Richmond from the North


1) Get on I-95 towards Richmond (duh)
2) Take exit 68-Chippenham Parkway (route 150) coming from the North the exit before it is Bells Road, so once you pass the Bells Road exit, get off on the next one.
3) Get off 150 at the Midlothian Turnpike exit (towards Midlothian)
4) The Putt-Putt will be on your left after the 2nd traffic light.

Coming from the South

The directions are the same as North. The only difference is that the previous exit before Chippenham is I-895. When you see a REALLY TALL bridge, you are about to approach the exit.

Coming from Tidewater

1) Get on I-64W towards Richmond.

Now, here is where there are 2 options.

A) Stay on I-64 until it merges with I-95 south. Get on I-95 South and from there the directions will be the same as the North ones.

B) Take I-295 SOUTH (not towards DC), and then take I-895. 895 will eventually become Chippenham Parkway so it's a lot quicker than option A because it doesn't take you north past the meeting area then back south. The only disadvantage is that there is a toll on 895 ($2.25). I will let you guys choose the option. I can still meet up with you guys at the rest area if you'd like. Just let me know what time you'll be there.

Sure, I can make it. Let's see if others can join in...

I'll wait to say this later... If this doesn't work out, we'll have a mini-meet at my house. Burgers/Food/Drinks/etc...Sometime at the end of month.

Late!

Right now, the plan is to have the meet somewhere in the Richmond area. It's a central location, a place where people from all over VA can come. However, if it appears that more NC/SC members are more interested than northern VA/MD/PA members it could be in Virginia Beach, instead. Right now I just want to see how much interest is in this, and where the interested people are located at before really nailing down a decision on location.

I can do a Richmond meet on either a Saturday or Sunday. But the sooner the better.

That should be a google map I made of all the southeast members I could find as of July. There are a bunch of VA members. I am surprised you guys don't have a quarterly meet as close as you all are together.
The map may be missing a few members so don't let your feelings get hurt if you're not on it. I will watch this thread and see who I am missing.

Let's throw some dates out and see what's best for everybody.

Next Weekend:
* Saturday Sept 29th or
* Sunday Sept 30th

Following Weekend:
* Saturday Oct 6th or
* Sunday Oct 7th (UUUGGHHH I'll miss the Talladega Race!! )

I'm game for any one of the four dates, my favorite is next Sunday Sept 30.

Reggie mentioned a possible location place of 'James River Park'.

Holy smokes, there are many VA people on DI.net.

Next Saturday is out for me. I have the Southeastern Music Games that I must attend. Let me get my schedule, Sunday would work, but let's see. Most Saturdays are filled with Marching Competitions.

Come on Chris....you can miss the Dega race....Chevy dominates that track so neither one of our drivers have a chance in hell!

The 6th to 8th weekend is perfect for me actually. The GF is attending a baby shower, perfect excuse to miss out on all the ovarian atmosphere.

Still want to wait a little while longer before making anything concrete.....may stop by and take pictures of the James River Park if it's going to be in Richmond.
