I did a search of the list and see that there are nearly 50 somewhat active members of the forum from Kentucky. That was way more than I expected. I wanted to reach out to you and others from surrounding states and see if there is enough interest to do a weekend get away event here in KY?
I am calling it "Bluegrass and BBQ".
Location: Morehead, KY (One hour east of Lexington and one hour west of Ashland on I-64). Home of some of the best Bluegrass backroads in the state.
Venu: Pop's Southern BBQ
Time: 11:00am - 12:30pm
Date: May 7th (tentative)
Plan: Meet up for lunch on some of the best smoked BBQ in the state. Located 3mi south of Farmers/Sharkey exit of I-64 at the crossroads of Rt801 and US Rt 60. About 5 mi West of downtown Morehead on Rt 60.
After lunch for those interested, there is a charity arm drop dragrace to be held that afternoon in town. There will be a parade thru town of all the hot rods led by the county Sheriff. Open to all street legal mechanically sound cars and trucks. All proceeds going to benefit the Shriners Childrens Hospital (a worthy cause). For a $50/donation you can drag race against the Sheriff's Hemi Charger in your car. There will be a couple of celebrity racers from the famous TV show "Street Outlaws" coming to sign autographs and run their cars. It may be enough to make Daisy Duke blush.
A map of some of the best backroads will be available for those not into the dragrace thing.
This thread is to see if we have enough interest to put this together? Talk it over and let me know.
