    Hey Everyone

    I've been looking to set up a drive in San Diego for a while now, and after talking with enough people, I've decided that it's going to be Saturday July 26, around noon-ish.

    The plan is that people can come out to the Carlsbad show that morning and then hang out for a little while (or maybe Jeff will let everyone come check out the Cavallo warehouse for a little while) and then we'll split for lunch (probably at Firenze Trattoria again) and the drive. I don't know of a route yet, but I'm thinking we'll start and end at the restaurant in Encinitas, and hit up Palomar Mountain in between. If anyone has better suggestions, please post here or PM me.

    Additionally, since that day is the day that Lamborghini is the featured marque at C&C (at least that's what I heard) I would like to get a small caravan of Lambos from down here to head up to C&C together, hopefully snag a few more drivers for the drive, and then come back down together for the lunch. Unfortunately this means I probably won't be at Carlsbad but I'm hoping that maybe someone will show up there and help get some more cars out.

    So far I have a few Lambos and 2 Ferraris confirmed, and I have heard from about 18-20 other guys that they would like to come out for it but aren't 100% sure if their schedules allow it. All cars are welcome, the more the merrier!

    Details:
    Saturday, July 26, approx. 12pm.
    Meet either (A)at the Carlsbad Car Show and caravan to Cavallo or the restaurant from there, (B) at C&C for anyone who might be willing to make the drive down to SD, or (C) at Firenze Trattoria in Olivenhein.

    Put your name and car on the list if you're in. Hope to see a bunch of you out there.

    No issue. I'll open the building up for everyone that morning. We can do it right after the Carlsbad meet. Just let me know the details.

    I'll be there with my camera, although I'll hopefully be riding shotgun.

    Edit: I'll also most likely be at the C-bad show working to recruit people there.

    thanks Jeff, that would be awesome.

    And Jeremiha, if you go to the Carlsbad meet that would be awesome because like I said I'll be up at C&C. We'll work it out.

    Update- so far I've got a few solid responses from some people, but have yet to hear from lots of others. This is an open event, anyone can bring their car.

    It sounds like there's a meet at the HRE warehouse earlier that day so I want to try to include that into the plans somehow... going to be a busy day

    Lets get a few more of you to make it on the drive. I'll contact a few of my friends and see what we can come up with. Should be a great afternoon for a drive.

    Assume 11am is time to meet for lunch. What time do you expect cars to roll out for the drive? I have a morning commitment, so I may miss lunch. However, I'd still like to make the drive.

    Thanks,

    Don

    Sweet deal. I would imagine we'll roll out of the restaurant between 12:30 and 1. Can I count you in for the drive afterwards?
