The event opens at 11am.

I know people like to arrive early, but the food etc. doesn't start until 11am.

See you there!

Starts at 11am, and I hope to wrap it up at 3pm, although the vendor will be selling food up until 5pm.

Rod, how can I accommodate you?

Guzzi outnumbered everyone else, w big blocks galore as the main ride.  Lucian got the high mileage award for riding down from Maine w nothing but a crude highway map to guide him.  Larry D made a rare appearance from Texas on a T-3 loaned by Scott, who rode in on a vintage Kawa.  Cape Code Chris (C^3) came and swooned everyone w his easy manner.  Also there was Rod on an Eldo (also from the Cape), David F, Robert C., Griso Bob, and Cassady pulled in w a vintage MG in Brit racing green.   New to the group was Dan + bride on a Audace, fresh from Seacoast.  I know I missed some, please sing out.

Joe,you know how to pick the day, picture perfect !   Thank's for organizing and posting up the event ,it was a good bunch and a great spot. Lol on  Jon and my sense of direction, we didn,t get five minutes out of the drive in "till I took the first exit off 140 and we did a loop around a mall or something. Got back on 140 and all was good after that. :laugh:   All told we did a 375 mile day , probably 20 miles more than we needed to!  Next year will be a piece of cake.  Hope to see you before that though, keep me/ us posted.

Whose red Griso?  I want a jacket like that.

Pescatore,

I think that's Bob Clark's Griso. 
And we hold this meet-up every year.  See you in '20.

There are some problems, and probably won't be clear to do it until mid to late summer.
The local venue has to deal w a really tough board of health, etc.

Please keep a good outlook, and hope for the best.
Feel free to pm me your email, and I'll email you the details when they're set.

Dave,
Holy (*%&^ the forecast changed for the worse.  Yes, with the 76% forcast of rain/thunder, it'll be moved to a diff. day.  For this Sun is it postponed.
The new day maybe some time in coming, so stay tuned.
