    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.

    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.

    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.

    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................

    Yes I'm still here. Like Jay, I will make an better effort in 2017 to get to Glastonbury. Can't believe this started in 2008! I too have my 360, along with the SLS. Miss the 348 :(

    Sorry I'm late responding to you guys.
    The operation went fine. Prognosis good. Did have a small amount of bone deterioration which required a small bone graft, but other than that it was a routine knee replacement.
    Had a bit more swelling and pain than I expected, but that has settled down and now I'm just trying to bring the range of motion back slowly.
    Only real problem I have is looking into the garage and not being able to scratch that itch.
    Hopefully I'll be able to visit G'Bury on 2-3 weeks. Therapist says it will probably 3 weeks before I can drive.
    Thanks for all of the well-wishes and see you soon.
    Phil
