THE GREAT C3M ICE CREAM RUN IV

Please print out a route sheet and bring it with you.



http://files.meetup.com/1430295/ice%20cream%202014.pdf

THIS RUN HAS BEEN VERY POPULAR IN THE PAST. WE ARE GOING TO LIMIT THIS GROUP TO 20 CARS. IF WE HAVE MORE SIGN UPS THAN THAT AND SOMEONE VOLUNTEERS TO LEAD, WE WILL RUN A SECOND GROUP A HALF HOUR AFTER THE FIRST GROUP.

BRING CASH TO SPEED UP THE PAYMENT PROCESS

What could be better than TWISTIES and a visit to an ICE CREAM joint? How about a visit to THREE great homemade ice cream joints. We will meet at Pine Cliff Park (think Crack Pie Run) and head out on part of Maryland's Best Ice Cream Trail. (http://marylandsbest.net/) We will be traveling the back roads around Frederick, Brunswick, and Hagerstown to test the delicious offerings of three creameries. Our first stop will be Rocky Point Creamery. Everything is good there, but pace yourself, we have a long way to go. Next stop is the agriculturally scented summer air at the South Mountain Creamery for more frozen refreshments. From here, we head north to the Misty Meadows Farm Creamery. 

The route is 66 miles and will take a little over two hours, IF WE DON'T STOP FOR ICE CREAM, so add another hour and a half.

Please bring cash to speed up the feeding process.

    Hey Tom Leonard & Will!

    The Ice Cream Run was really fun! Great people, Mini Coopers, Ice Cream, and a sunny day; who could ask for more! Thanks for taking the time to research the routes and being great team leaders! :-)

    Thanks Will I and Bella had much fun and we enjoyed meeting everyone. thanks guys for making Bella so comfortable she loves to ride.

  • Robin

    Wow! That was fun! Best part was missing the turn and trying to find you guys. I see now why being in the tail end is much more fun. Well, at least for me it was. Thanks for putting it all together, especially the second leg!!!

    My 'navigator' has requested a sissy bar installed to hold onto when we get lost. He said it wasn't fair 'cause I had the steering wheel and he didn't.

    And when is the next event? I want to pre-signup!

  • Jodi S.

    I do not yet own a radio does anyone has an extra I may borrow? I am not certain how many groups there are-but understand I am not in the first one? Although I've not seen a listing of who is in what group as I did with the cupcake run. I'm not good at this yet!! LOL

    August 11

    • Alex S.

      Jodi, I'll have an extra you can borrow if you don't find one. Ask for Alex or find the clean black S with black wheels and tint ;)

      August 15

    • Jodi S.

      thanks so much Alex...I will look for you this morning!!

      August 17

  • erica

    Does "10:45" mean meet at 10:45, or engines start at 10:45? I was assuming the groups were leaving at 10:45 and 11:15, which means we should all arrive a bit earlier? Clarification please. Thanks! :)

    1 · August 16

    • Will S

      I'm hoping to be wheels up at 11:15, but it depends on what time G1 actually leaves. I'm supposed to give them 30 min lead time. I wouldn't want G2 to lap them ;-) Nonetheless I suggest G2 riders are at the start by 11A.

      August 16

  • Kit

    Molly is sick. Not sure what is wrong, she won't start. She is at the dealer and I have a loaner mini. Pretty sure they don't want me taking her on the run. So disappointed. Was really looking forward to this.

    1 · August 16

    • Eric

      Call it a "test drive "

      1 · August 16

    • Will S

      Bring the loaner!

      August 16

  • Tom L.

    Both groups are now full, unless we have any more cancellations.

    August 15

  • Kevin H.

    Im assuming were all meeting up in the morning at 10:45 and we'll decide how we'll to split the group if it too large.

    August 15

    • Tom L.

      Alex, that is correct. The groups are now split based on who RSVP'd for which group.

      1 · August 15

    • Tom L.

      Kevin, you were not RSVP'd for either group! I added you to the 10:45 group. Both groups are now full.

      August 15

  • Dave M.

    Just to be clear, I am RSVP'd for the 10:45 start. That means I am in the first group?

    August 15

    • Tom L.

      That is correct.

      1 · August 15

    Move to 11:15 group..

  • Pam&Jeff

    Hi so sorry to have to miss this, we aren't going to be able to go this year...we look forward to the next one and hope maybe we could do it again before next summer--this was really fun last year!! :) have fun guys!

    August 15

  • Will S

    Sorry for the late notice, but I'm doing another dry run this Sunday if anybody would like to assist. I'd meet you at Lake Forest Mall (unless you're someplace between downtown Silver Spring and Frederick, in that case I'd just pick you up.). Email/message me through my profile and let me know. Thanks.

    • Will S

      Alex, it was great having you along for the ride. I appreciate you tolerating my ongoing chatter as we drove :-)

      Due to the few that I had made unfortunately I can't reserve any, it's truly first come. Hopefully next time I can get the design done far enough in advance to take pre-orders. Sorry.

    Don't forget your 2way radios everyone.

    3 · August 10

    • Todd

      This will be my first run. Does the group use a certain channel for all runs, or does it vary by run?

      August 11

    • Will S

      We've usually used 7-21 (channel 7, sub-channel 21).

      August 11

    So how are the groups split up so I know what time to be there?

    August 10

    • Mike P.

      My understanding is that those that show up first, are placed in the first group to leave, & so on...

      August 10

  • Will S

    Tom, are you getting *all* of my emails?

    Ha - thanks Jodi - don't know about that - I'm going for some extensive dental work - they're 1/3 the cost of here, and state-of-the-art. So, I guess I'll try & fit in a little down time in between my appointments.

    July 24

  • nora

    So sorry I'll miss this - leaving for Costa Rica on the 17th :-( Looks like it's a great turnout too - 60 people - wow.

    • Will S

      David, I just replied. Sorry for delays, I've been at Baltimore's Artscape since 10A. All, David's going to ride with me this time but I will be doing at least one more dry run before the actual event.
