ATL SLK Oct. 10th meet

Met up w/ Joe & Rick (and of course our MUCH better halves) for a grillout on Saturday (thanks grill master Joe) and hatched this plan. Rick's going to talk to ACC about a shop tour etc... and I'm going to plan the mountain drive to Dehlonega for lunch at this wonderful Italian place. Date is scheduled to be Oct. 10th, time to be determined. Mark your calendars!! More details to follow.

I'll try to be there (schedule not out until the mid of Sept), but I'll either be in a Sedan or a BMW. I promise to park down the street...

Yeah a great dealership, last time we met there they had refreshnents & goody bags, but that was pre-recession, they've had to let a # of people go. Had a messgae from Rick and they're getting something ready for us. More info to follow.

PS - Rick is looking (and feeling) great after his surgery!!!

Gents - assuming I *happened* to show up at the Atlanta airport early on the morning of the 10th, anyone got a spare seat? :P

Now that I have a back seat, I think we can pick you up...

As of today, I'm working the 10th, but if John comes, I'll drop the trip!

An update, just talked to Rick and ACC will be ready for us on Oct. 10th w/ a tour and other undisclosed things. Plan is to meet at ACC at 11:00 am and after that head up to Dahlonega for a nice Italian lunch. ACC is asking for ~ # of people and that will also help me w/ the lunch reservations. If you could let me know ASAP that would be great, but # doesn't have to be exact if you find out at the last minute you can make it. Also if 11:00 doesn't work for a number of people we can adjust if you let us know soon.

PS - Great news, Rick got a clean bill of health today from his Doc so he's back to full ops!

I should be in. Don't think I have anything on the calendar for the 10th. I'll have the blue ghost all shined up and ready to roll!

I'm in as well, either arriving late Friday night or early Saturday morning - just waiting to see what I can get a seat on outta lovely Houston.

David - what am I looking at time wise to get from ATL to ACC assuming I can't get a seat until Sat am?

John,

Traffic shouldn't be too bad on Sat. AM. I'm 5-10 minutes from ACC (NE metro) and it takes me 45-50 minutes to get to the airport on the south side using I-85 through downtown. ACC is directly off I-85 at GA315/Boggs Rd.

I'm free on the 10th. At the risk of sounding foolish, what is ACC? Will talk to the bride and see if she wants to join in the festivities
