Question

Stuart,

My scoring tech lives in Maryland, he said that the best way to go even if it is a bit longer is to make my way to Virginia Beach, cross over the big bridge and follow hwy 13 I think, he said it takes you along the coast and it is a no traffic all the way up to Wilmington.

What do you think about that?

To me that's the best way to go... But you really have to be carefull with the speed going that way. I am actually right on the way going that direction.

JM, for those of us that have never been to MECCA, I was wondering if you have any idea of what kind of events we can expect. I would ask all prior year participants to post what experiences they had when they were there last time, but I expect it will be a little different and scaled back this year.

For people taking time off work and/or getting doggie sitters, can we expect an all day event/run on Saturday or how long will Saturday's run take?

SHINY since you asked so nice, on Thursday we will probably have a dinner somewhere in North East MD. There are some really nice places along the top of the bay. On Friday we will have a dinner after the tour at Joe's Crab Shack and "The King" is already working on that. For Saturday we will probably do a day trip maybe the AFB Museum in Dover or down to Ocean City as there is a hot rod weekend going on.

You guys talking about 301 and the 301 bridge over the potomac? (It's also the bay bridge...)

U.S. Route 301 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I'd highly advise this over the DC beltway. You never know what's going on there, and I've been in dead-stop traffic when it's been nowhere near rush hour. Might be faster if everything works out, but it's a total crap shoot.

Me, I'll take my normal route to Annapolis, then pick up 301 there.

This will also be my first meet and I was wondering about the schedule for Friday.

I don't think I can make it up on Thursday and would like to drive up Friday morning to join everyone for the tour. Is that possible? If so, what time is the group meetup at the plant for the tour?

Thanks to all coordinating this!

Friday will be an early morning start at the plant. I'm guessing that you will need to be there around 6:30 or 7 AM at the latest. Hope that helps.

Oh and all you non-morning people sorry and my only suggestion is to just stay up all night on Thursday
