    Some info about the upcoming fall run.
    We will be meeting in the Big Y parking lot 90 Halls rd, Old Lyme, ct  at about 10:00 am, leaving at 11:00 am   Directions are, I95 N exit 70, middle lane, turn left at light, then right at 2nd light.  Turn right into Big Y shopping center parking lot at next light. Go to the left section of lot, away from Big Y.

    first stop at Yankee Cider for a drink and a bio break.  Please consider bringing a folding chair if you have one, as they have limited seating inside and out.

    Lunch will be at Little Pub in Old Saybrook.
    If it is nice they will seat us in an outdoor tented area in back, if it rains we will be inside. Both areas are large and allow for social distancing. Checks will be “per table” so please bring cash to make things easier. I posted a link to their web page in the events section so you can see the menu and prices. We can park in back of the restaurant behind the tent, or wherever you can find a spot.
    If you do NOT plan to stay for lunch, can you please let me know here in the forum, or email me at lorax2@snet.net so I can let the restaurant know how many people to expect.
    I am going to cut off sign up on 9/26, so if you would like to drive with us, please sign up by then.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    Tops down, revs up 🙂

    Thanks for the update…and I want to ask this question.

     

    Is there a car count limit for the ride?…is there a body count limit for the restaurant?  I have received text message this morning from a Clubmember saying she cannot sign up because the event is full.  she is not interested in the restaurant at this time…just the ride. Presently the signup is capped at 40 reservations.  Should Rob up the number?

     

    Drop me a PM and I will shoot you my phone number so we can chat

    Joe, there is no car count for the run, and there is not a limit to people at the restaurant yet.  I have increased the cap so people can sign up again.  If anyone that has signed up already does NOT want to go to the restaurant, please let me know.
    thank you.
    Joe, I sent you a pm.

    Update to the Fall Leaf Peeping run

    Sign up has been extended to Friday 10/2/20, so everyone has a little more time to decide.

    The ride is getting bigger which is great, it should be lots of fun for everyone. The weather looks like it will cooperate too, no rain, and cooler.

    Because of the size of the group we may need to split the cars into a few separate groups, so I’m asking for 3 volunteers to be group leaders to help keep everyone together.  Please leave me a message if you would like to help out.

    Once again, if you DO NOT wish to stay for lunch, please let me know soon.

    Thank You!  See you all soon 🙂

    DAVE

    I am more than happy to ride tail on the lead group…please. I am kinda tired of being tail end charlie to the whole pile of cars!!  As we saw last week, splitting into manageable sized groups …with a real interval…worked out pretty well

     

    As of late Friday night there are 28 cars signed up for your ride…pretty darn good!!

    Great to join in, sound like a lot of fun.   I am a GWRRA member (Goldwing Road Riders Association) , thats a big two wheeler for all my 4 wheel friends LOL    and usually Tail gunner but have lead some rides to.   Portable CB in hand.

    Realizing I am “the new guy” I am hoping to just fit into the mix somewhere but wanted to let you know if more members show up then expected and you need another group.

    Totally looking forward to meeting you and all involved, weather looks good and it should be a beautiful day of leaf peeping.

     

    Thanks

    Hello Dave,
    I’m sorry to get back to you so late. I have been looking at the event section and not the forum section. I didn’t see your request for those not going to lunch to respond to you. Cindy and I will not be going. I hope it didn’t cause any inconvenience.

    The weather is looking good for tomorrow…the list of Clubmembers is HUGE…DaveM and I pre-ran the route yesterday afternoon…nice ride!!.  Good combination of back road twisty bits and some relaxing on larger roads before getting to the next fun section.  the cider place is expecting us sunday…unlike yesterday when two Miatas pulled in and the manager just about had a heart attack thinking he had the date wrong!!…no worries, he survived the scare and we had a nice chat.  The off to more back roads and shoreline scenery eventually ending at The Little Pub.  they are also expecting a large group of us on Sunday.  Huge tent with picnic tables out behind the building.  Plenty of space to park and maintain proper distancing.  should be a good day…so see you all bright and early.

    Thanks to everyone who showed up for the Fall Run on Sunday, you all made the day fantastic!  The  great weather didn’t hurt either 🙂

    Special thanks to the group leaders, Dan & Sandy Riccio, Dave McCaughan, and Joe Wall for helping organize all of us, and to the “tail gunners’ for keeping us all together.

    Hope it was a fun day for all

    Dave & Cindy

    No clue where your others went…they might have been too big…and it seems that this wedsite software does not like videos…but if it is posted somewhere else, a link will work
