      Thats gonna have to be up to the Mods..
      My understanding is that one of them would have to make a new thread and copy the info over in order to sticky it. (Which is fine w/ me if a mod is reading )

      Time will tell

      Thanks for the Athens love.
      This covers Gwinnett and all of NE Georgia also.
      Of course, everyone is invited to any of our monthly GTGs.

      I just listed the ones that were posted here that I knew of.. as far as I am concerned all regular GTGs could/ should be on this list. VW or non specific alike. Some of the best GTGs I've been to have been mixed ones..

      Bryson, if you want post up or PM me the info, and I'll add it to the 1st post.

      There's lots up here in 400 north area. It's a mix of cars though but GREAT people. We've changed ours from every wens to every other wens. Monday nights at Andretti's is every monday. We do trivia at Ethyls before we race and it's half price after 10pm and arcades are free. Once a month Topspeed has a GTG at the shop, I can keep go'n.

      We tried a couple of times to do a Gwinnett gathering and the attendance was poor.

      We have more than a couple of people from Gwinnett come to our Athens GTGs. See above.
      Just an option.

      Our next GTG on Athens is Saturday, Sept 25th.

      There's one more happening just south of atlanta, too.

      it'll be on Jan 29th, 2011.

      gone (for now), but not forgotten...

      Is that Barrett parkway GTG the one at starbucks or is it somewhere else right there? I know the one at starbucks has alot of nice cars sometimes (all kinds) but also gets some silly rice kiddies acting dumb and usually ends up with the cops running everyone off.

      I almost got hit in that lot by a "neon light car" because he was going about 45 mph around the building in the parking lot! showing off to his carload of friends. I rolled up to where he parked and was going to lay some beat'in but the guy was super apologetic. Wouldn't have cared so much if I didn't have my girl in the car.


      end rant about barrett parkway/
