    I called Ferrari of Long Island and they told me to mail to them and make it out to Ferrari of Long Island. Two different ways to pay, I guess?

    As much as I like "schmoozing," being a new owner my bias is much more towards driving and having fun with the car, aka, the Carrera GT run. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I expect the focus here will more socializing/hangin' out, and less driving, although I do recognize there will be a scenic drive.

    Yeah...anyone going? If we dont pay the $50....you think we can just meet at FofLI and drive with all the Fcars over to the North Fork....have lunch somewhere else....and then drive back? whacha guys think? because really, the $50 probably covers the lunch costs.

    Though, I dont mind paying because I am a FofLI customer.

    Me too. I like both,the driving and the schmoozing...well...mostly checking out the cars

    In any case...my interaction with F Of LI will now be limited to them replacing my clutch...which won't happen by 5/23

    Hubert: why don't you sell your pair of Scuderia Todd's so you can pay for Sam, me, Lupei, Notoboy, Vik and Vik's "flavor of the week"?

    pchop is twisting my arm on this one. Plus, it's the only way I could get him to join us for our run on Saturday. ;)

    Work/weather permitting, I will trek it down. 50/50 at this point. Only due to anticipated work demands. :(

    I just called FoLI concerned about the RSVP & late registration.
    (516) 671-7575

    and was told to show up at their showroom Sunday with $50 in hand and I can go. (or they're happy to take your $50 over the phone in plastic)

    I think I'm going to take the money-in-hand approach too. There seems to be a bunch of heading to the East (could this be ROE II? :eek: ) from Jersey and the City, and so thought it might be fun to caravan.

    The list I have so far is:

    (1) Hubert888
    (2) ClydeM
    (3) Titanium360
    (4) ghost
    (5) cmbb328
    (6) sjmst
    (7) Black355

    Is everybody still going?

    Would like to suggest meeting at The Cloisters at 8:00am, and then heading down. How does that work for people?

    sounds cool to me. im definitely down for stuff this weekend i guess. It's so funny how Vik writes how people who are sitting on the fences about whether to go or not ARE indeed going. LOL

    All part of my master psycho-subversion plan! :D:D:D

    Seriously, though, let's have Ferrari fun this weekend, and I promise to leave everybody alone next weekend for golf and the other "lifestyle" things we do when we're not behind the wheel. ;)

    The Cloisters is on the West Side of upper, upper Manhattan, slightly beyond the George Washington Bridge. Keep going on the West Side highway till you pass GWB. Once you pass the bridge, stay on the highway, but keep an eye out for the signs. The Cloisters should be on the right side. Once you make the turn, you'll drive up a curvy road which will bear left, and eventually reach a small roundabout. We'll meetcha there.
