    The weather service is optomisticaly forecasting dry weather with sun breaks this coming weekend (6th & 7th). Considering how far in advance they are forecasting this I am inclined to believe it may be true!

    I have some roads to drive that are new (and FUN!) to most of you and are in the immediate vicinity for those that don't want to go that far north. I have a place picked out in Arlington for lunch afterwards for those interested.

    Let me know which day would work best for the majority and I'll set it up later this week.

    Hoping you 'Westsounders' can make it over so I can return the favor of the fun drive we had over there.

    Carly at the 'Big Giant Coffee Pot' says come by early for a cup!

    How about both days!! Just kidding. I'm not sure I can make it either day but plan away and I'll try to adjust my schedule. Sure would be fun to come up there and drive around!

    argh!!! this coming weekend I've got my sister and a friend in town, so I can't break away (I've only got one extra seat, ya know!). I could and would make Sunday afternoon once they leave, but I don't want to hold up anyone.
    Let me know what the plans are and I'll do my best.

    Maybe your sister could hitch a ride with somebody and you could take your friend.

    The usual Northgate meeting place is fine. Just pick a day and time.

    Dana, you need to get the details out on the club chat system for those not on FerrariChat.

    I'm still around, Kuzi.

    I don't think there's a decision yet on the drive. Need more input here and on club chat. Personally, I prefer Saturday.

    Hmmm, I wonder if I can borrow my 360 from FoS for a day... A few more miles and rock chips wouldn't hurt too much, would they? ;-}

    If its consigned then you should be able to..........however if you traded it in then it might be tougher for them to release it to you for one day. But never hurts to ask.......right?

    Hi guys,
    So far the weather report says morning fog with patchy clouds and some clearing for both Saturday and Sunday.

    I've decided to take advantage of the weather and drive BOTH days so for those of you that can't make it on Saturday morning can come up on Sunday, I'll be ready to go!.

    Please let me know who is coming up/when so I can stake out at spot at the Eagle Crest for lunch on both days. I will try to secure a room at the end of the building where there is an adjacent parking lot that isn't normally used for restaurant patronage but close enough to keep an eye on the cars.

    I'll be at exit 208 (Arlington), parked at the Shell (next to Denny's). I'll be there at 9:30 am across the street drinking coffee at 'The Big Giant Coffee Pot'.

    I would like to hit the road about 10:15 or so. Hopefully traffic will be light.

    Please contact me with any questions,
    DJ

    Hi Andrew,
    This isn't an official club event and we have had numerous 'others' join us. Usually an Alfa or Mercedes once in a while, sometimes a Bentley or a Maserati.

    Personally I don't have a problem with a Ferrari fan showing up in a non-Ferrari.

    Send me a PM

    Im a vote for Saturday......Why don't you post a meeting time Dana for us meeting at Northgate since you know what it will take to get there according to your schedule!!!

    Kuzi....shut the place down man...private tour, all kinds of fun stuff after you left. You missed out! (yeah right....about 10 min after you left!!! ) LONG drive home :) think I need to buy a condo downtown for nights like that!

    If I remember correctly you southenders meet at Northgate at 9:00 am and leave at 9:15 or so. It shouldn't take more than 40 minutes to get up to the Arlington exit. (It has been done in less so I am told):p

    Talk to Willis.........................................

    I wish I could do both! I'm going to have to say Saturday for me too. Chris do you want to meet at Starbucks again? What do you think about 8:15 or 8:30 then up to Northgate by 9:00. Then on to the Big Giant Coffee Pot woo hoo!!!

    I have a stop planned back at the BGCP (Big Giant Coffee Pot) half way through the drive too.
