College Park Postponed to 1/22/11!!!! Hey everyone, as Warren pointed out, the 6speedonline group is postponing the College Park (Ikea) portion of the meet until next Sat. at the same time (see link). Fairfax Starucks at 8:30am is cancelled (we can discuss alternatives in "comments") so the official meetup site will be the Tysons Starbucks at 1pm (see address below).
http://www.6speedonli... So, I'll keep the College Park meet on our calendar or next week. As far as I know the Tyson's portion is still on at 1:00pm, so we can just make that our official meet for the week. Even if 6speed cancels it for some reason, we can still meet there and then. However, that means that I'm cancelling the 8:30am Fairfax Starbucks stage for tomorrow (1/15/11) as we only had a few people who were coming to that and we'd have several hours to kill. Of course this does not preclude any other gatherings that members want to set up amongst themselves. I'll be messaging all those who RSVPed to see if they want to meet before 1pm somewhere. We can discuss options in the "comment" field. To recap... 1) No College Park Ikea meet tomorrow. That will happen next week. 2) Tyson's Corner at 1pm is still on (if only for us). 3) No Fairfax Starbucks meet. If you RSVP'd for the event, you'll be getting a message from me shortly asking if you want to meet up before 1pm somewhere. We can use the "comments" section on the event page to figure it out options. 4) I'm going to repost the College Park meet for next week (1/22/11) please also RSVP for that event. Hopefully I didn't forget any details or mess up any formatting. If you have any questions please email me or post them. I'm keeping the original announcement for reference only. Thanks! -Original Announcement-
Well, it looks like there are a lot of meets despite the colder weather. Warren mentioned a meet organized through 6speedonline.com and I wanted to post it here for anyone who is interested. Plus, I'm trying to stick to a "once every two weeks" rule for the meets, so this is really good timing. I'm including the details provided on the 6speed site below. I liked Warren's idea of meeting up at Starbucks in McLean and then cruising over together. So, that means that there are actually three locations and times. I've provided the details below. I also wanted to further encourage those who haven't attended an event yet, to please consider joining us sometime soon. I think you'll be surprised at how easy-going and fun the group is. Having said that, I asked the organizers if I could post the event and they agreed with one stipulation - they don't want any "ricers." I don't know exactly what they are envisioning, but there you go. If you want to attend, but you don't want to drive to college park, please let me know and I'll see if we can't find you a ride. Feel free to go directly to College Park or Tyson's at the scheduled times. As always: Guests are welcome. Please RSVP. Please post ideas. DETAILS: Feel free to read the 6speedonline thread here: http://www.6speedonli... 1. Fairfax Stage The NOVA SCC Group @ 8:30am - leave by 8:45am 3011 Nutley Street Fairfax, VA 22031 (703)[masked] 2. College Park Meet Saturday, January 15, 2011 · 9:30am - 12:00pm Location: Ikea 10100 Baltimore Ave. College Park, MD More Info: We are planning a Cars & Coffee Meet at the Ikea in College Park, MD; right off Rt.1. Lots of places near by within walking distance for Coffee (Starbucks), Bagels & More (Einstein Bagels) or even all out breakfast at Ikea. Venue is to meet, chit-chat, grab breakfast and maybe a cruise. This meet is extended only to exotic & performance oriented cars, no civics/ricers allowed. This meet obviously is contingent on the weather & road conditions (ie; salt). 3. Tyson's Meet Tyson's will be at the Starbuck's where the Ethan Allen Gallery is located across on 7 west bound from the Rosenthal Nissan Dealer. This is the only information I have about this meet. I don't know the exact times, but from what I can gather, a group will head down to Tyson's after the College Park meet is finished. Let me know if you have any questions.
