Mile30 A new club has entered the fray
https://www.facebook.com/MocoMeets?hc_location=stream
I have been attending these meets with various MD car clubs for two summers now, starting with [I]MACA[/B] and the number of forums and members that planned the events... and lo-and-behold; MoCo Meets (Montgomery Co.) (of Facebook fame) has JUST thrown their hat in the ring! These guys organize some serious get-togethers, and last night was no exception!!!
https://www.facebook.com/events/4890...1&notif_t=like



The organizers have permission from Bruster's ownership to host in their lot, and the rules are simple: Don't Be A Douche! Luckily, no one had to be THAT GUY!!! As long as we can all be adults, we can enjoy these kinds of car meets here... they're only going to get better!

I'm not against this. 3-5 is a good group - the cars will be relatively evenly matched, and we won't piss off the local PD.

Car guys in big numbers going down the same road is, all too often, a breeding ground for stupidity.

cdbertrand I'd be up for it.

Some people are elitist (but that goes for EVERY car/enthusiast club) and exclusionary to "new" members, or just guys they haven't seen at older meet-ups before... I've been more active with these Focus Forums over the last four years than I ever have; people don't really warm up until they see someone they recognize.

ALL that being said; It's about having fun with your freedoms, your car, and making new friends that all share a highly specific interest (Little Ford Corner-Carvers)!

I need to re-post this in the "Coal Country" thread...

Mile30 The first Bruster's Ice Cream Social car-meet of 2013 is this Saturday @ 7pm! My Focus ain't ready so I'll be there in my rat-rodded beater Honda.

A number of us are, no doubt, hilt-deep in an FR13 build; and the first show isn't usually big enough... so bring whatever you got ready! I'll get a link up so you MID-ATLANTICS can get there!

I'm doing another dry-run in a few weeks to ensure the entire route is acceptable; and filming a homemade "movie-preview" with my brother. Also, against my better judgement; I may even involve CarLoveDC and get some exotics in on it.

There may be a handful of you NY chaps headed down for this, too!
