    Triangle Italian Motoring Enthusiasts will be hosting our monthly breakfast meeting on Saturday, December 1st at the Briar Creek Commons shopping center at the junction of Highway 70/Glenwood Ave and Interstate 540. Breakfast and coffee will be available from Camille's Sidewalk Cafe, Caribou Coffee, and Bruegger's Bagels. We will be gathering in the outer parking lot near Chili's so that we can be close to all three locations. Breakfast will go from 9 AM to 11 AM, which should give plenty of time to grab a bite as well as enjoy the Italian machinery.

    At 11 AM, we will line up for a toy run. We are collecting toys for Toys for Tots and we are asking everyone to please bring a new, unwrapped toy to the meet. Once everyone is lined up, we will take 540 to 40 to 440 and onto Western Blvd where we will deliver the toys to the United States Marine Corps for distribution to needy children in the area. We hope that everyone will take the time to participate in the toy run. If you find that you are unable to stay for the toy run, please leave a toy with one of the other attendees.

    We are extending an invite to this event out to the entire European sports car community, so please spread the word. Hopefully those on two wheels have a pack of some kind to bring a toy. We truly appreciate those who attended last month's event and we look forward to seeing everyone on December 1st.

    Questions, comments, concerns, and suggestions can be posted up here or sent via email to TriangleItalians@gmail.com

    Some other stuff still in the ideation phase:
    - New Years in Pinehurst with the CAFE and Triad guys
    - February meet in the Glenwood area followed by a track prep/maintenance/shop tour session.

    We're always looking for ideas, so please post any ideas that you have.

    Thank you.

    I forgot to add: Does anyone in the area have a pop-up that we can use? I used to have one but it has been passed along in another club, never to be seen again. Thanks guys.

    Emails have been sent to the PCA, BMWCCA, MBCA, our mailing list, and the local Marine Coordinator. Hopefully this event has a good turnout. I look forward to seeing everyone out there.

    I would like to come, and can bring a toy.

    If someone wouldn't mind me riding along with them for the "run" it would be great :D

    ECTurboGSX, do you know of anyone that would let me tag along with them?

    Would you mind if I opened this up to NCEuro? I think it is a great cause and many would probably be interested.

    I've got no problem with that.

    We should have an ad in the paper soon. They're going to try and fit it on Saturday's but we may get stuck with it being in next Thursday's. Anyone had any luck with locating a Pop-Up Canopy??

    Eric...I like the idea of Briar Creek Commons to get the Raleigh / Durham guys to come out. Besides, its only a quick hop on 540 for us Cary / Morrisville guys.

    Doc,

    It's a Staff Sergeant and that is all I know. The phone lines at the reserve center are so old and crappy that I could barely understand anyone I talked to over there. Not to mention the fact that everyone there felt the need to talk as fast as possible. I guess I'll find out next Saturday.

    When are you coming home? We look forward to having you back. Stay safe.

    Well, I asked them to get us in the Saturday paper and they did. They had to cut out the pretty picture and a lot of information to do it though. We're a tiny little box in the top left corner of the Auto section.

    Looks like the end of Jan.


    May have to plan for a Mid feb meeting or maybe wait longer as I don't have a clue what the weather would be like. Either way, it will be a blast to get home. A year is a long time.

    Cameron, sorry/happy to hear that. I'm sure there will be plenty of events for you to attend in the future. What school are you going to look at? I hope you enjoy it. Be picky about colleges, it can either be the best years of your life or some not so good years.

    Peter and Matt, I'll see you Saturday morning.

    I'll try and make it up there from SC if I can, but with a recent move at work, I've often had to work weekends to help catch things up. - we'll see.
