Alright guys, we've been thinking of having another meet in February most likely the 11th which falls on a Saturday but haven't had it set in stone yet. I'd like to get some input for those who might be able to make it out. We'll be meeting around the Triad area. I have some ideas to offer but like I said hopefully some can input what they think or any other ideas.
I thought about meeting up somewhere (TBD) to possibly eat for lunch in the Winston area or somewhere in Yadkin county. After we eat we can head up to the mountains for a nice cruise while taking some photos along the way. A little bit of a relaxing idea.
I'm still working out some details on this one, but we could meet up somewhere for lunch (TBD) probably in the Winston or Greensboro area so lots to choose from, then after we finish up eating head out to either Farmington Dragway or Piedmont Dragway. Only down side to this idea is we would probably have to reschedule to either Friday February 10th (maybe) or Sunday February 12th. If we choose Friday we would go to Farmington (a little closer for those coming from Charlotte) but I haven't gotten an answer to if they have a open track day. Or we could choose Sunday and go to Piedmont (which is a little farther for those coming from Charlotte but closer if anyone comes from Greensboro/Burlington). They do have an open track day that day starting at 1-4:30 P.M. Any car/truck is welcome to come! It is $10.00 to get into the dragway and $10.00 to race (not sure if that's a one time fee or not). After we do some racing we could head out for a little photoshoot.
So I'll leave it up to y'all. Hopefully this won't mess up anyones schedule too bad. I'm hoping for more people to show up maybe. Tell all your friends and family if they're interested in going! Any car is welcome! If you have any other ideas don't be afraid to throw them out there!
I just heard back from Farmington and they said they do NOT have any open track days during February but we could rent to track for $1,000 for that day....I think I'll pass. I also heard back from Piedmont Dragway and they said it is $10.00 per person to race and in the gate and the $10 to race is a one time fee.
Here's a link to Piedmont's website: http://www.piedmontdragway.com/
If anyone knows of any good curvy roads in the Mountains it would be great if you shared those areas, I'm not really to familiar with wayy up in the Mountains just mainly like the Pilot Mountain area.
