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