May 1st SPRING Time Meet Sonic/ Pagoda/ Maple Grove Raceway

Postby LegacyofDan » Mon Feb 22, 2010 3:48 pm

When: May 1st

Where: Pagoda Reading PA
Here is an idea where we would be going.

Image
It even has nice hill climb roads up to the summit of the pagoda mountain:
Image
dont believe me? it has been used by SCCA before as a hillclimb mountain:

It is great for pictures, has about 3-4 great spots!

Where We will Meet Eat and Greet:
SONIC
Location: http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&sourc ... 27874&z=16

Time Frame:
1:00-2:00 pm meet up at 1 and we will hang out at there for about an hour or so, get food chill etc.
2:00-4:00 pm head up to the pagoda for pictures etc.
of which here are these directions:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=4515+PERKIOMEN+AVENUE,+READING,+PA+19606+&daddr=Duryea+Avenue,+Reading,+PA+19605+(Pagoda-Skyline+Inc)&hl=en&geocode=FYQHZwIdXHN6-yktpgh1SXrGiTH2J1uPh639TA%3BCVMuXwErCchFFax6ZwIdvcV5-yEnt1iUIe1HSA&mra=pe&mrcr=0&sll=40.332151,-75.874024&sspn=0.20126,0.445976&ie=UTF8&z=14

BUT...i plan on taking an alternate path, to hit up some good ol's back road fun, i just gotta sit down and do some planning and stuff on which back roads would be the most fun. lol

Also i was talking to some locals and the said there is a lake near by:

3:30/4 till whenever pmThen after we are done taking pics, we will head up to Maple Grove Raceway and watch the Saturday Night Grudge racing/TNT

its a bit of a drive but not too bad.
and again we will likely take a different course to get there, since Google maps sorta sucks, but that link at least gives you an idea.

typically costs 10 bucks a head to get into Maple Grove.

I know we just had a local meet, but i figure it would be a good idea to have one right before the Rally America Meet(viewtopic.php?f=28&t=37206) that way we can help out anyone that may need helping out. As in avoid having to ship parts or just get advice in person, of which is generally more helpful than just reading what someone typed, that way you can ask more questions.
Plus alot of us will probably have our 'tracs up and going by then, since it will be warmer and will have more desire to get stuff done.
Also its always nice to just hang and chill with some cool gear heads and just bs or laugh at 20 psi volvo's or turbo'ed mustangs (both inside jokes from last meet).
Regardless though, should prove to be a fun time with a lot of great pictures for your computer's desktop!
Hopefully we can get more people than we got last time! Lets try and see some more 5th gen's!

I don't know either location or the areas, so whatever you think will yield a nice drive and photo ops... :)

As for the date, I really can't plan that far in advance... So for now, no preference. I'll know better as the time gets closer... :)

There ya go guys, that should prove to be an adventure! :)

i just need to plan out the route specifically so that we are not stuck on boring city roads in traffic and getting separated.

Good Plan guys? :shrug: :D

Well hopefully you can, figure it would be good to have everyone together and help plan out the big meet at Rally America, and also just check out everyone's tracs and help each other prepare to make the drive to Rally America. Plus, trying to make this meet result in alot of great photos and good times too.

HaHa well hopefully you can make it dude, we will be going to a drag strip so maybe you can show up some of the local rice. :)
