Hello everyone. My name is Leo (1 can 'rado). I'm going to officially start the 2014 OLD SCHOOL GTG Thread. In years past we've held the venue at Half Moon Bay because the topic came to mind that the roads and the drive to Point Reyes were not accomodating to the lowered cars. I've attended a few Half Moon Bay GTGs, but I felt (a few of you as well) Point Reyes was the "REAL" Old School GTG place to be. Slammed/Lowered or not..........I think for 2014 we should bring the event back to the original location!!!!! I don't want to step on Jon's (verruckter_vw) toes by trying to head this, but I know for a fact that if this event went back to Point Reyes...........it would put a BIG A$$ SMILE TO HIS FACE.
Location: POINT REYES, Point Reyes website
Date: March 23rd, 2014
Address(for quick reference)
1 Drakes Beach Rd.
The route from the park'n'ride to the Pt. Reyes
At drakes beach there is PLENTY of parking, last year we had over 100 cars and a descent amount of parking lot left. theres beach access, a little cafe, and a bbq area with tables, and very sanitary grills!!!
Im not sure where people are going to set up meeting spots? but Here is last years meeting spots, maybe we can use this one again!
--Lucas Valley Rd exit off of 101N has a park and ride that will be the designated meet spot (if this is full due to weekenders you will be directed just down the street to another lot)
from the north, its just a bit before the golden gate and richmond bridges. from the south its just after the golden gate and richmond bridges. from the east, you will take the richmond bridge to 101N and its not much farther from there. last year alot of people went there and left around 12ish i believe..
this cruise from the park and ride to the beach is about 30-45 min or so through fun winding roads and one or two very small towns.
we will all park along the outside of the parking lot, once at the beach. you will see the AM group I.E. myself and a couple other people that arrived early to set things up and hog up as many initial parking spaces as we can....
after the meet, im sure alot of us will be going in the same directions and will cruise together back, making for more rolling shots and stuff for my video.
if you have any questions, feel free to ask! if you have any coments be sure to post them please try to assemble group trips up, down and over! it was all around a blast last year!
i dont know if i forgot to add anything... if i remember more, ill post it. this initial post will keep changing. please IM me if you plan on going so I can add your name, and car to the list!
MEET/CARAVAN LOCATIONS AND TIMES
this is the info from last year, and will probably work just as well for this year, but i can change it up for ease of convenience for people if something was confusing, or needs to be updated from last year!
It would also be good, if everyone could bring a motorola type radio for Comm.
