Hello Fanatic Family

:director:ITS TOO QUIET UP IN HERE!!! :smash

I figured Id give the Northeast Clan a little jolt...

Everyone feel free to jump in.

I plan to put on a nice event June or July of 2020.
I want to make up for the few years of silence.

So lets all have some fun with it...:party

Everyone post what you would like to see in New England.
What would make you drive thousands of miles to experience?...


Disclosure...:deal:
You cant always get what you want,.. you can try sometimes,. you just might find,. you get what you need.:gitara:
Must be legal ,.. somewhat,. or at least minimal chance of getting caught.>:)
Must be "G" rated,. at least for the public posting,. all other rated suggestions are to be PMed:blush-anim-cl:
Any bad suggestions will be passed around and laughed at without your notice.,. :glol
I am not responsible for jail bonds, hospital visits, or psychiatric help,. your on your own.:crazy
If injured at the site of the event, .you will be promptly rolled to the curb, we never saw you:whistling:

SSR Club in MD, DC, Northern VA

Are there any SSR groups or clubs in Maryland, District of Columbia, or Northern Virginia?

Hi Kenn ,..

Welcome to the family!

There are a lot of active members around,..
Your poke will bring a few out of hiding.
Its spring and the Northeast group is just waking up.
It might take them a bit to respond to your call.

Haven't seen or heard much from you on the forum since Watkins Glenn. Would be nice to have something similar to the Escape to the Cape but on a smaller scale (depending on response) had a good time. Hope things are well with you and your enjoying the Pace Car.

A track run on Watkins Glen sure sounds good to me! How about a run up Mt. Washington? Been there once and they have an awesome museum up there! Nice train rides in the area also!

Just a couple of ideas!

Years ago we attended a VW event right in downtown Woodstock NY. It was the best VW show we ever attended. We toured the Papacton Reservoir (spelling?) which is NYC water supply on the way. The town of Woodstock is very cool.

Catchin up...

HOGS ,.. I have been side tracked with a house project.. 300 hours working on a bathroom,..
Now I don't want to use it.:hyper:

Johnny B ,. Its always good to spend time with you and your lovely wife.
Im sure the event will be unique.:thumbs

XOBRUCE,.. We can always count on you to add spice to a forum. :blush-anim-cl:

Quicksilver,.. support your local shelter,.. but don't adapt 40 cats like my neighbor.

HUAW,.. We have a dedicated Watkins run,. its a great event in itself.
How about the New Hampshire track,.. might be able to incorporate it into a White Mountains NH Run??

Blur'd Vision,.. That's a good idea, Im targeting New England for this run,.
that might be a thought for the Watkins run.( I believe its not far from there?... geography challenged.)

Scott 0168,.. No problem,. we will make sure to make up for lost time.
I will come up with a complete package by July 1st,. this will give everyone a year advance.

Good morning treasured friend ... it's great to hear from you. Jan & I are still so appreciative of you coming to the best SSR International Rally ever and leading the Friday Night Route 66 Mother Road Parade back in 2015 ... in fact we, the SSR's, got the "Best Club Spirit" award presented Annually to a designated group. Nobody can claim that distinction but us !!! 70,000 spectator's lining old city Route 66 and watching 35 or 36 beautiful SSR's roll by "topless" and all color's too. I think there was a total of 1,200 vehicles in the "Cruise In" as the call it. Took us an Hour & a half to go 5 miles.

Bill, this is a great idea and you are a great promoter and a great organizer. Hope you have a great turnout. Watkins Glen Road Course would be much more fun that going around an oval unless ... it was "Bristol Baby" Sure hope Jan & I can make it, but 12 weeks of Chemo for Jan, starting this week for Breast Cancer may limit our future travels right now, but attending the 18th Annual Route 66 Mother Road Festival in September is # 1 on our schedule right now. 2020 will be a great year ... I will be a "young" 80 years old and # 1 Grand Daughter will be graduating from High School next year ??? Please keep everybody posted ... you da' man "Wild Bill" NOW I Strobe. Wishing you the very best. "Lookin' up to watch a bird ... Holding arms to climb a curb" Bob & Jan "Old Friends" :smile2: :smile2: :smile2:

Hello Mr & Mrs Cozy Dog,..
Great to hear from you.
You put on an excellent event out there in Springfield Ill..
It was an honor to lead that parade. Pushed that massive flag rack to its limits but worth it.
We (the 36 SSRs) made for a great parade kick off.

Unfortunately I couldn't make the Texas Nat,. But I will be in Branson.

I am so sorry to hear about Jans treatments. Please keep us informed of her progress,.
You know we all love you guys and pray for the best:grouphug

Just for you,.. I will wait until 2020 to hold this event.

(ok everyone,. don't tell Bob it was set for 2020 anyway,. make Bob & Jan feel special...er)

From your point of view the 2013 SSR International was the best because you planned it !!! You, with your Flag Bearing SSR was the best example of American loyalty was something to see. Have a great day.

The wife and I have been talking about a trip to New England. She was born in Mass. but hasn't been back in almost 50 years. This might be a good excuse for a ROAD TRIP!!

A lot has changed in 50 years,.. but there is a lot of History that will never change.
It will be nice to have her back.
What part of Mass is she from?

Every event is the best. Local to National.
They are presented with pride by the coordinators that put their heart into events to entertain our Fanatic Family.
Everyone drives away from an event with 2 thoughts,.
1. THAT WAS AWESOME!!
2. Whens the next one?

Anyone that has never attended one of these events,.
Your missing out on the best part of owning an SSR..
Meeting all these great people just like you.

First, thanks for planning this in advance. Even though many of us are retired, we have a tight schedule and well in advance (like China in September 2020!).

Any reason to get to New England would work for us. Driving up Mt. Washington sounds kind of cool, but we're easily entertained. A big thanks for putting this on.
