    Thread: So. Cal Phaeton owners August GTG

    1. 08-01-2005 12:10 PM #1
      Hello to all.
      It is that time again for the So. Cal Phaeton owners quarterly GTG. This will be our second meeting and it looks to be a great one.
      We have scheduled Saturday, August 27th, 7:45 AM at Crystal Cove, Newport Coast as our next GTG location.
      For those not familiar with the area this location is on Pacific Coast Hwy just south of Newport Beach and just north of Laguna Beach.
      This will be a great way to enjoy the best luxury car in the world (for under a $150K), while meeting other Phaeton owners. Of course having the beautiful Pacific Ocean as our back drop can't hurt either.
      The following itinerary is planned:
      7:45 a.m.: Arrival.

      8 - 8:30: Check out the exotics and hot rods that gather each Saturday from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.(the center asks them to depart by 9 or so to open the parking lot to patrons).

      8:30 - 10 a.m.: Breakfast meeting at Pacific Whey restaurant in the center. Review Pebble Beach, discuss issues and concerns, and formulate a realistic game plan for our little group.

      10 a.m - 11 a.m.: Demonstration from Meguiar's Wax on car care.

      11 a.m.: Wrap up and departure.
      ** A special thanks to Michael Smith for his efforts in planning. **
      This GTG is open to all Phaeton owners and those who might be interested in purchasing one or who just want to be around great people.
      Those who are planning to attend please email me your confirmation to [email protected]
      Hope to see you there. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Glad to see you check in Derek.
      We're meeting at 7:30 AM. It should give you time to check in with us. What time does the dealer open on Sat, 9 or 10 AM.
      Do hope to see you.

      Bob,
      Thank you.
      It is looking like we may have a good turn out based on what I'm hearing.
      I dropped of this poster at some of the local dealerships.
      I ask Michael to post the poster for me.
      See you soon.

      Below is an image of the really great poster that Rick cooked up for this GTG. At the bottom of the picture, you will find an Adobe Acrobat PDF file of this poster. You can download the PDF and print it, if you want to distribute copies to the dealers in your neighborhood. The PDF will print at much higher quality than the photo will.

      Hi Michael M.
      Thank you for posting the poster.
      One of our members Michael Smith knew a graphics person who took our info and requirements and came up with the design.
      All the dealers seem to really like it as it keeps with the look and theme of the dealerships.
      FYI:
      The posters print size is 11 x 17" so unless your printer can handle that size paper it may not print correctly.

      Wow - Nice showing! Congratulations guys and gals!

      Great turnout! I hope we can get that many too. Would be neat to see 9 Phaetons pull up in town.

      Hi! Bob
      Great shots. Will try to post more photos.

    20. 08-28-2005 09:56 AM #19
      Fantastic turnout! We want more pictures.

      It was a great Saturday morning -- perfect weather, and probably the biggest single gathering of Phaetons on the West Coast, and maybe North America...anybody have numbers from other owner's events around the country?? How many Phaetons were in Michigan earlier this year?
      Regardless, the gauntlet has been thrown -- I hope you guys in the Southeast can beat our numbers!
      We here in the West will do it one more time this year, around Thanksgiving or early December (details to follow) so plan on joining us then, too.

      I think we had 8 or 9 vehicles at the Auburn Hills GTG. There were 21 (plus a motorcycle) at the Dresden GTG.
