    Spring ROE…on the way.
    Hello all:
    Those of you who were there for the Fall ROE know about this, but for others, here’s the basic idea:

    As many Ferrari chatters as possible get together for a fun run of their cars to beautiful points east on Long Island…known by some as the Hamptons, others as “the Country” but to we commoners on Long Island as simply “Out East.” Hence the name, Run Out East or ROE (wait, even more cleverness to follow). We meet at a central point, caravan to a winery, then onto another point for lunch.

    Now, for some fine tuning for the anticipated second installment, Spring ROE:

    GENERAL:

    1) Date not yet been set, but figure late April, very early May.
    Some dates in mind : 4/04/04, 4/24/04, 5/8/04.

    2) Everyone is welcome who is an auto enthusiast with a car they love and is in for a friendly get together, and is not likely to require incarceration,

    3) Not just a “Guy” thing (sorry guys). Families, kids, wives, girlfriends (though not wives and girlfriends together; it’s a rally, not demolition derby) are welcome. I think it is important to be non sexist and inclusive (OK, the truth: some of you wouldn’t be allowed out without the wife). If that requires a backup car, so be it. Just keep 20 car lengths behind the “real” cars. JK…sort of.

    4) We have interest from other Italian Marques owners (Alfa Romeo & Fiat/Lancia), so this will be more inclusive right off the bat.

    5) I am trying to make this as simple as possible for everyone to join and enjoy. Basically Pre-pay (yes, see below) and show up. You will be guided all the rest of the way.

    MORE SPECIFIC:

    1) We gather at a central meeting place, perhaps off Exit 63 of the LIE as we did last time.

    2) We caravan out to a winery, maybe the same one as last time, Galluccio Wineries.
    Once there, the following may take place:
    After lining up the cars on the lawn there is a catered lunch for those who PREPAY.
    Then, there are tours and wine tasting. At the same time, there can be informal people’s choice awards for cars based on various categories. Everyone judges each other’s cars. Photos are taken, including perhaps a group shot of one car representing one of each marque represented at the ROE.

    3) The next portion is a caravan to other points out east. The final destination will be the dinner gathering, where winners of the judging will be announced. Again, the plan is to have this prepaid.

    4) There has been talk of adding a “charity” component to this. That is, give folks the OPTION of contributing to a worthy cause. My initial thought is to contribute to a Hospital, in this case “mine” in NJ. That can be done through a Journal ad by this group, and or raffle ticket purchases. This is purely optional, but it seems would add a nice touch to the event for little money.

    THOUGHTS/ IDEAS/ HELP

    1) Thoughts on this in these early stages are welcome. Fellow F Chatter Barney has already told me he will work on this with me, as we had worked together for Fall ROE. At a point soon, he and I will have to simply make some decisions and present for people interested, but for now, please offer any ideas or comments.

    2) If anyone has any graphic artist skills, might be nice to develop a “logo” for the event.

    3) Bruce, I know you have developed a master list. If you, (or anyone) know a good way to reach more people to inform them of this, please tell me.

    That’s all for now. More to come.

    I'm about 1.5 hours NW of the City in Warwick, NY . It's in Orange County.

    Love your car also. Hey, this could be the start of a Mondial Mutual Admiration Society. :)

    Hey Tom, here are my thoughts.....I say, forget the Hamptons!!

    Let's start our own Upstate NY (the BEAUTIFUL "country" side for those city folks) dine-n-drive event....

    Orange County/Dutchess County and points North offer infinite possibilities and outstanding winery choices...Not to mention unmatched physical beauty the Hamptons can't even touch...More scenic roads, no traffic, away from "stuffy" crowds ;), less expensive and more tasty...Do I need to say more???

    I know plenty of Tifosi in Westchester, Northern NJ, CT areas that would love to join us.....Let me know..

    There are some GREAT roads up in the Catskills - to name just one: Rte 23A West towards Hunter Mountain from the thruway is an absolute haven of hills, curvy roads and mountain passes - not to mention WIDE open stretches and little traffic between ski and camping seasons(fasten your seatbelt, check your brakes and suspension, please).


    Hi Sam - count me in for the ROE, possibly the fam.

    Please keep your fellow F-Chat neighbors in Connecticut posted up on these potential dates!!!
    Sam - Shooting out to L. I. is no big deal, and I'm up for doing a winery run with you guys. But, we are driving Ferraris and they do need to be exercised occasionally...
    Tom Buckley - You are one crazy mo fo to be driving your Mondial in this weather... Go buy an SUV and leave your stallion parked!!
    Peace out fellas!!!!

    Sam and Barney, count me in. With the winter we're having I'll be looking for a good ROE once the thaw arrives.

    A suggestion for a summer event is if we all (NJ, NYC, LI, CT) plan to head up to Lime Rock for the Ferrari Challenge event. Its held July 8th through 10th. The various regional contingents could meet up at points along route 95, 684 and 22. Can you picture the stream of cars?
