    Hello all,

    Just wanted to start a discussion page about the event, something in hindsight I should have done a few weeks back…

    Looks like we are quite full with 31 cars and 40 people in total!

    With that said we will be breaking it up into two groups to make life a bit easier on us and the restaurant at the end. The ride will stay in the NW section and ending near or in Winstead, CT (still confirming the restaurant).

    Stating at Kent Falls, first group out at 10a (earlier if we have enough people onsite to start the first group) and then about 15 minutes later for the second group.

    We’ll be heading north through the forests, around a pond, and then get as elevated as we can before heading for a pitstop for refreshments and a break. We then go cruise around a bit until we end up at a place with some good food and plenty on tap!

    Look forward to seeing you all out there.

    -Rob

    If anyone has to back out please sign me up! And I am also trying to get a miata-owner friend to come and join the club if two spots open up.

    I just counted only 29 names on the list…so there should be one more spot.  Someone must have cancelled and removed their name from the list

    I signed up! I am actually going to carpool with my miata friend because his nb needs a new clutch. Bad timing, but I am a determined new member recruiter!

    • Dress for a brisk drive
    • Make a pitstop for food and restroom before arrival (there are portapotties at the Falls however)
    • Have fun and enjoy the views!

    Was not able to get any good shots due to interference but this was the best of the bunch.

    Also a big THANK YOU to all that attended, it was great to see such a turn out!

    It was a great day, weather and road conditions!  Stops at Litchfield distillery, Mohawk Mountain, and Rowley Grill and taproom, all great choices.

     

    Foliage was decent, better in some spots than other, but better than last year color wise.

     

    Thanks again to Rob and Angela for all of the planning, and the breakfast buttered rolls turned into mid ride snacks!

    Sofia and I had so much fun on the leaf peeping run. We wanted to thank Angela, Robert, and everyone else involved in putting this together.

    We can’t wait to participate in future events.
