September ATL get together

I know we have discussed another ATL get together for maybe sometime in Sept so how does Sept 27 work for everyone. I am leaving Sun Aug 24 for 12 days in Europe but will be getting all the details together for a southside trip to Callaway Gardens if that's still good for everyone else. Open to any more ideas just let me know.

Sept. 27 works great for us, because with travel and Tech football games free Saturdays are getting rare. Road trip to Callaway is a good idea.

Hey Guys,
I am on the site, but only check it every once in a while. I am interested in another get together, please keep me up to date on this.
Earlier in September I will be going up to Pocono Raceway for the AMG Challenge event. Anyone else going to that from the Atlanta area? Are there any particularly nice roads between here and there that would be scenic detours without being too far out of the way?
Email me or call me to let me know.

Looks like a thumbs up from Lori, so count us in.

Glad to see Shelton's on here too. Can't do an A.T.L. meet without him and Sarah!!!

Now we just need Rick and Gina!!

Dave, have you done the Antenna mod yet?? Let me know, maybe we can show our soldering prowess together.

Bummer!

Hi everyone, Gina and I can't make it. Gina will be in Florida with our church ladies going to a seminar and I will be in Charleston SC. at a graduation of a Navy nuclear power class. I hate we are going to miss it. Gina and I so enjoyed meeting you all last get together. Please let us know how it all goes. Thanks all!

OK, so we'll have to give it a go while Randy is out of town! That way we can show off when he gets back!
Just let me know when and we'll git-r-done!

Sounds like a plan Joe. I'm off to the Netherlands later this week until the middle of the month. I'll give you a call when I get back.

Sounds like my neighbor and me putting up metal sheds...

I told him,, "Let's put yours up first and then we'll put mine up right!"

Ok I'm back into the swing of things now so I thought I'd see what everyone is thinking about the get together. If Callaway Gardens is good we can do that, I know it's a good haul for you northsiders or another possibility is a tour of Atlanta Motor Speedway which is about an hour closer. I know a couple of folks that have been able to do a lap with their own car but will have to check more into that. You guys just let me know what you prefer.

I received the PM, and thanks for the invitation, but I'll be getting back late that day and will have to miss. I look forward to meeting you all in the future.

As for great drives in N Ga, try this:

Hey, I'm still on for Saturday, but not sure if Lori can make it! Bummer! So you guys are just gonna have to look at my pretty face instead!

The Speedway sounds like a plan to me. Dave? Randy? Thoughts?

BTW, is it just the 3 of us?

Anyway, let me know if we are still on or if you guys would rather postpone to see if we can get more cars for another time. Either way I'm in.

Joe
