Fall meet (BEACH or MOUNTIANS) idea thread

well was thinking and talking with another couple fellow fanatics. most of us want to go to FocusFest but cant touch that long trip. so i was thinking we put together our on meet for the south east guys. so hears the ideas.

first is a weekend in mrytle beach. the time would be mid sept. the priceing would just start to be going down on hotel rooms and wouldnt be an crowded due to school just starting. would est 200 for two nights in a decent ocean front hotel.(i went last year and for an ocean front room i paid 240 for 2 nights. and cool thing about the hotel i stayed is purchase 2 nights and get 1 free. so for those who wanna go for a bit longer they can hold it down. the idea i was thinking is that for those who want they could go down friday night. the meet wouldnt start until saturday morning for those who only wanna stay one night. the ones that show up friday night can chill out at the hotel or possible meet up and tear up the town. the idea for sat is a meet early in the morning and determined spot. (prolly the hotel) then lunch or something of that sort and a photo shoot.(maybe even take to the beach for a bit) afterwards a trip to the nascar park that has gokarts for some encounters with the wall. then a night time meet and cruise of the city and strip. then sunday would be up for what ever anyone wants to do. the idea is a nice weekend with a price in the area of 350 at the beach. some ideas to keep cost down would be that we get a group rate at the hotel. also if you have a buddy that is planing on going then you could room together. to me 350 for a hotel and money for the karts and food is a decent price for a weekend of fun. not to mention the cost for gas to FocusFest would be in the area of 250 there and back for me.

OR

we could do a mountain cruise. was thinking or mid sept also we could meet in an area outside of the western part of NC. then take a preset route throu the mountains trying to use back roads as much as possible. with some reasearch we could find a few towns to stop in. i havnt got much info on the mountain idea but as i said me and a few other fanatics where thinking of it. i would love to take a scenic trip down some narrow back roads in the smoky mountains. ive driven throu there befor and there are some awsome sights and roads to tear up. well as i said its an idea. the mountain idea wouldnt be anywhere near as bad as the beach idea as far as cost. not to mention i think the nc guys have a mountain run every so often.

with that said we need input. any likes/dislikes or is it just a bad idea period. like the title said this is a idea thread and once everything is put together a complete thread with this is the game plan will be started. so throw out some ideas.

i like the idea of the beach.. you would have to try to set up some good stuff to do or places to be so alot of people would come out..

i think frist off we need to deside on what idea to do. so lets do this in a poll manner. everyone needs to state there opinion on which to do.
