I feel like I am in an aquarium on SLK World 517 views in 3 weeks and 2 replies. There must not be anyone from Nor Cal here except 2.
I feel like I am in an aquarium on MB world 511 views in 1 day and no reply. Not one response, I at least expected a sardine.
I don't get it
Can someone from Northern California post a reply? Please!

Lil Don, just a suggestion, why don't you have some Sunday events. I have not yet been able to meet up with the NorCal group, partly because I have to work Saturdays. Originally, I grew up in........(don't hit me over the head), Stockton, so am very familiar with your part of the world. Still have lots of family there in fact, and some in Sacto. as well.

Would love to try and meet up with your group as well. Think about a Sunday meet every now and then.

Stinger...join us in July for the weekend in Ft Bragg if you can...the No. CA group has always been centered around Saturdays and since the Bay Area MBCA group started "First Sunday Drives" monthly, partially inspired by our drives, we have kept the Saturday emphasis (we also find many participants are more committed to Sundays with family).

Anyway, no 100% formula...we'll keep working on it...

Looks good Don...except did you notice the large text is 4-13 instead of 4-30? Hope it doesn't confuse people...

THANK YOU, I SAW IT STEVE, AND HE MADE IT SOUND LIKE ANY MERCEDES BENZ WAS INVITED TOO! I WAS SO SPECIFIC ABOUT EVERYTHING IN DETAILS AND HE DECIDED TO CREATE HIS OWN VERSION. HE LOOKS LIKE A REAL OLD FART, SORTA LIKE ANDY ROONEY FROM 60 MINUTES. I STILL LOVE ANDY ROONEY THOUGH. CONFUSION MAKES MORE GRAY HAIR SO, I MIGHT JUST GO SIT ON 4/13/2011 TO MEET AND GREET JUST NO DRIVE.
I AM CRAVING A SQUEEZE WITH CHEESE SO BAD, THAT I HAVE THE JITTERS REAL BAD SQUEEZE W/ CHEESE PLEASE!!!

MIGHT HAVE TO GET A CHOLESTARAL INJECTION TO TIDE ME OVER.

Like a morman on a mission, i went door knocking today asking for slk volunteers to attend the sacramento valley slk enthusiasts on april 30th. I scored and got a recruit. I didn't even have to carry the good book, or the owners manual, wasn't riding a bike, just parked slk in driveway, not even wearing a tie and i didn't even have to pray. Slk people just know that "slk is their religion".

Blah,Blah, Blah is there really anybody here from Northern California? Over 400+ lookers maybe wannabees and nobody knows how to use a post quick reply. I am about to give up on this. Best wishes! If anyone knows anyone from Northern California please tell them about our Sacramento Valley SLk Enthusiasts group. Thank you all! Don

Don't give up just yet. It may take a little time to get a new group started. We drive up to Seattle and get together with the SLK NW group all the time. Would be fun to get together with the Sacramento group as well some time.

Wish we could make it. Alway enjoy meeting others with the same passion for their SLK's. Unfortunately we will not be able to make that trip. We are planning on joining the SLK NW group that weekend for Railroad Days in Long Beach, Washington.
I will watch the Nor Cal posting though and see if we can make it down for one of your events.

Nobody showed up today. I sat and waited to see if anyone from the Mountain Democrat Newspaper ad showed up. No shows but the date is actually 4/30/2011 not 4/13/2011. All is well! I feel good!
