    Fellow Coloradans,

    Well us Southern guys have decided to set up a car meet, were not trying to compete with the well established cars and coffee up in Denver area but wanted to offer an alternative for those who would want to drive south for some different scenery.

    We will meet the last Saturday of the month at 8 am through lunch. Trappers Rendezvous graciously offered us their parking lot and patio to meet, they have great food cigars and beer and interesting scenery (see website) Trapper's Rendezvous in Colorado Springs, Co

    Their address is 5905 Corporate Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80919 and if you have any questions please feel free to PM me or join our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/672189916252681/

    Our first meet up is on the 26th of March, please consider driving down and help us kick off with some awesome cars!!

    Thanks!
    Jason

    Count me in also. Could we have a little caravan down from Denver? Makes the journey down that much more enjoyable.

    I won't make the first one, taking the car out to run Daytona Road Course at the Celebration Exotic Car Festival mid April.

    Yes. A couple times it was also sanctioned as a rally and we got to start at the tollhouse. Some of the lower section in canyon were also sketchy butt-puckerers.

    I'll try to make it. Depends on weather of course and thanks to this week's snow the cars are entombed once again. It's melting off pretty good today but snow is expected again Wednesday.

    this sounds great. What are some of the c&c details around Denver? I found one at Vault in Parker. Are there any others that happen regularly?

    Can't make it this month, but hopefully next time.

    @ETL330 the other major C&C around is in Lafayette on the first Sat of each month. That's generally well attended.

    Alright, Saturday is the last Sat of the month so we will be meeting again! This time a slight change to plan,

    Lets meet at 10:00am instead of 8:00 am so that people driving from Denver dont have to get up so early. Also we can hang out on the patio of Trappers as they open at 11am

    I know we are conflicting with some of the Pikes Peak Hill climb events, but looking forward to seeing anyone who can show up...

    Have a great weekend!

    Is it wrong that I have anxiety and probably not going to sleep soundly looking forward to the drive to Co Springs tomorrow morning

    There might be late morning/afternoon sprinkles, if you are worried about that sort of thing.

    Sorry I missed today, I had to I go to Westcliffe to deal with a "slight" leak in one of the tires of the car my son took there this week for a jazz camp/clinic. Can you believe they refused to patch it? :D

    Wow, Casey! You definitely needed more than fix-a-flat for that. :)

    It was nice meeting Ken and Tom this past Sat. Very small turn out.
