2017 Ongoing Connecticut Gathering

Every Sunday at some point between 9:00am and 11:00pm a group of 2 wheel and 4 wheel sporting enthusiasts meet behind the Starbucks at 140 Glastonbury Blvd in Glastonbury Connecticut. The Plaza is called Somerset Square and includes Max Fish.

This gathering was started approximately 10 years ago by a group of Ferrari owners.
Ferraris are always present along with other exotics but every type of vehicle is welcome and encouraged.

Note that we are meeting on this property without an invitation. Please respect each other and the venue we meet in. Feel free to stop in whether you have a vehicle to share or just want to enjoy the comradeship. ALL are welcome.

Happy New Year's guys! My resolution is to get back to Glastonbury

Wow time flies! Just for fun I dug through the threads...the first Starbucks 'meet' was just me on 8/10/08, Lane and Craig didn't make it when he shredded a tire on the 348...

My day gone bad

A week later the CT Gathering kicked off:

Good times. Hard to believe we have kept this going for 8 years. I miss my 308 from that first meet... the F430 is better in almost every aspect, but that 308 will always be my favorite.

If the weather cooperates, I'll bring the TR Sunday.
Hope everyone had a fun New Year's Eve..
Going in for a new knee on Monday so I'll probably miss the following 2-3 Sundays.

Snowy Friday

I'm dashing through the snow in my AWD snow tire wearing Jag and I see two round tail lights in the mist. As I get closer I can detect an emblem in the center of the body. "It can't be"? I get closer. "It is"! A black FF! Sweet! It's got AWD. It had CT plates. If anyone know who it is let me know so the club can give him an award.

Good luck with the knee replacement procedure !!!
I'll phone you in a few weeks to invite myself to your house to check out your cars.
I'll take you out to lunch.

Did the snow blowing late last night. But the roads here are still messy, so I think I'll pass today. Plus the 4 degrees isn't exactly warm... I'll be laying low for a few weeks with my knee, so take pics and post.
Enjoy the new year................
Phil
