Patti and I would be happy to host a SoCal event in September to mid October. This run would start in the Riverside/Redlands area.

We are open to planning a Friday arrival through Sunday or a single day run. Please give us ideas and who might be able to attend.

For our northern friends, Idyllwild is located in the high mountains south of the 10 Freeway, west of Palm springs. Beautiful mountain views, windy roads, not to congested, several parks, quaint little mountain town. We would travel from there east through the beautiful Garner Valley, descending into Palm Desert, and an evening in Palm Springs.

No planning really has been done, but would love to welcome you guys to our neck of the woods.

Depending on the scheduling, this is certainly doable. Make me a tentative, after all, can't have too many sunburst Redlines :D

Just trying to get an idea of how many would be interested. It seems most are up in Northern California. No problem with that, will most likely make the one in August. But we have some great mountain highways out this way. Most never go to Idyllwild, we could even hit the Anza Casino for awhile if people wanted. Great restaurants in Palm Springs. We have a time share there, I maybe able to get rooms reasonably for Saturday night.

I would just like to see other club members cars. I only remember ever seeing three Sky's. One of the first Red Lines I believe, it was in Temecula, then the one at CarMax last Saturday,, and then ours. I have seen some Solstice though, but not a lot more

You are close (closer than I) to Kappasphere, they seem to always have something going on during the summer and some nice products too.

My office is just down the street from them. I maybe down there on Thursday or Friday, will stop by. Taking my boss to lunch and a ride in the car. Well if Patti lets me drive it. You know it is hers, keep telling myself that, or I will be in trouble!!!

I will be talking with Myrna of the San Diego roadster club shortly. Will have a better idea of what and when we can do this. They are planning an August 10th run from Fallbrook to Escondido.

We have at least three that would like to do the Idyllwild run and my guess a couple more in the area. Will get back to each of you after talking Myrna via PM.

This sounds fun...I am interested.
I've never been on a "run" and my DustBunny is NA, not Redline...may I still partake?
If it involves a casino...even better!

We are in the early planning stages for this. Will be involved with the www.SanDiegoroadsters.com. I have spoken with Myrna about it and they are interested. There is a run on the 10th of August from Fallbrook to Escondido. PM me your email address and I will send you the invitation for it. We can talk about it at that run if you like. The more the merrier. Thanks for replying.

And yes you are more than welcome. Would like to see it where we had a couple of choices a month

For the past 2 yrs San Diego Roadsters has been putting on meet/greet/drive 'em events posted on the calendar of website

http://www.sandiegoroadsters.com/index.php?option=com_events&Itemid=26

For the most part simply show up & ride when needed head count for reserved restaurant seating. The latest 15 Kappas: Bay Area (WCKCC) and San Diego Roadster met in Solvang on the Cali Central Coast for 6/27 & 28 weekend did twisties of Santa Barbara Mtns, beaches, reserved seating lunch/dinner good times!

Residing in Inland Empire for the rush/experience of driving with a group we rarely miss an event 8/10 we'll be there perhaps you can get more of a feel/idea for your possible run

Videos of several Kappa Runs put on by Myrna of San Diego Roadsters here

Yes, we are working with Myrna on this. Initially, nothing seems to be posted on this forum about their runs. I think that will be a topic of conversation on the 10th. I have spoken to several new owners that have interest in this area.

I just saw this morning the Solvang run listed on the San Diego roadsters site. Looked like great fun.

We will be in attendance, glad you are making it. I think the number is around 10 or 11 at this time, but a couple on here have said they may make it to. Sky Pilot, RoboTech and someone else. Do not remember his/her name.

Unfortunately Solvang was the week after surgery and a week before vacation.

I hope I don't forget to make this one.

Real close to OC

I will be talking with Myrna of San Diego Roadsters about this run. We are hoping to do something in mid October, so it is not quite as hot. Sill in the early planning, thinking and asking stage. I will try to keep all interested up to date as time goes on. I would like to have a confirmed date by the end of this month.
