New event calender coming soon

So where do we Northern Cal. guy’s go?
Jesse, Keep watching this Pacific forum for the new 2011 calender of events for the Northern and Central regions of WCKCC. The club officers had a meeting over Super Bowl weekend to plan this years runs. They have asked numerous time for input as to where club members wanted to go in 2011.

Have you just moved up to the bay area? I don't recognize your handle or car. We try to have some kind of get together once a month. In fact LeChief hosted a Super Bowl party last Sunday. Bigdog hosts an annual Christmas party. There are numerous runs planed thru out the year. At present there are two of us planning to go to the PNW Regionals in Pinticton, BC in August. We have a lot going on during the year. Hope to see you on one of our future gatherings.

sorry for the delay, I was reading the other posts and didn’t scroll down…..lol

I've been in the bay area for about six years but I've only had the Sky for one year. the wife and I were just discussing the calendar that just came out and are very excited! we are ready for anything semi local and would love to take the occasional long trip…BC maybe. we have lots of extra time since we are both in our 40's and seem to only dine out and go to Vegas….lol

I live on 3rd and Mission downtown and don’t see many Sky's but I do see a navy blue solstice almost every day….I think they park in the garage around the corner, often I want to flag them down but I figure there going to work. I only drive when I can create an excuse to…..for instance I went to Pep boys in San Carlos on Sunday for air freshener…lol.

I will check this section of the forum every day as I do the rest moving forward.

I have also just renewed for WCKCC for three years and look forward to some activities!

Jesse, Jane and I are looking forward to the clubs outings this year. From what I can see there hasn't been any positive dates set for the runs so keep watching the Pacific Forum for further details. The run planers will post there when plans and dates are set.

We are planning to going to the Regionals in Pinticton, BC in August. We are planing on taking a few days to get up there, with stops in Portland and Seattle for some site seeing. We plan on arriving in BC on the 18th and leave on Monday the 22nd. Sexy Sky in Ca, aka, Sonia is also planning on going. Not sure if she wants to do the sightseeing on the way up. The run up is about seventeen hrs, so you could make it in two days with only one overnight at about Portland. At this time I believe that the organizers of the regionals are expecting 40 cars. It should be a great get together.

Glad to see that you and your wife want to come out and play with us. This is a really great group that we have up here Nor Cal. We always have fun on our runs. If your into hockey, GoThunda are big fans and plan hockey nights with the Stockton Thunder.

See you around the bend.

Lot of old names on here. :) I keep seeing Skys between Temecula (where I now live) and Corona and often wonder if I know the driver from here. Been a while but I poke in from time to time. Hope to see some of you out there on the road sometime and glad to see this is still going strong. :)

Hey Robotech, how the heck are you. I have just surfaced after a two year hiatus! I have been seeing other Skys, but they have their noses in the air. What's with that? Are there any runs scheduled for the So Cal group? I see a lot of activity in San Diego area, but haven't seen anything around here. I'm getting back into the swing of things and would love to go on a run. I bought another car and Lizzy (my Sky) is jealous! However, nothing could take her place!!!
I LOVE MY SKY!!!!

Hey Endi, where are you guys? Are there any activities here in our area? I see all the runs they have in San Diego, but is our club still alive up here? I'm back in the driver's seat again and thought I would hook up with the gang...if there is a gang any more. I've seen a few familiar posts from Skip and and Marlboro Mike. They haven't changed a bit. Hope you are doing well.
I LOVE MY SKY!!!!

Funny you should ask.

I just bought another Sky yesterday. Waiting on delivery.

Which is ironic since when I got my first Sky people were waiting 5 months or so to get them and I was lucky enough to walk right in and buy mine...

...and now I'm sitting here waiting a couple days to get my "new" used Sky. LOL

Really something strange with the SoCal group. No responses or activation from the website. Can not join the roadster club or the GM club. Nothing ever posted on this site, but tons for the Northern group. I am on vacation, but I am supposed to call the Southern division chairman(?) when I get back Tuesday.

Glad to see you are back. We have only driven ours about 200 miles since we got it. Looking forward to seeing others. I live in the Inland Empire and do not ever remember seeing one on the road, several Solstice, but never a Sky.

Glad to see someone responded!!!!

Skersfan,

If you get a run setup in SoCal - you may want to give everyone at least a month notice - since most do not check this as frequently.

Best of luck!!

Thanks for the reply RedSky1.

I am just trying to join the club, find out information, meet the owners in the area. Not much communication about our region for sure.

Well, you may see one now as I live in Temecula but commute daily to Norco for work. :)

It's funny seeing this post and the one about an Idlewylle run. When the SoCal club was just starting out we had about 15-20 cars take a dirve through that area. While we were on the road, another group of "Skys" joined us and, judging by their number, we thought it was another part of our group that had taken a different route.

Turned out they weren't Saturns or Pontiacs...they were Opels! GM had flown in a bunch of journalists from Europe to have them get a test drive in the new Opel (which looked almost identical to the Sky with some subtle differences) and the test drive was on the same day, at the same time, on the same road, as our run. They got in with our group thinking just like we had that it was a part of their group that had gone a different way! It was great talking to them and they were amazed at the passion with which the American's had embraced this car.

Good memories.

I live off that road, about 12 miles from Idyllwild. We drove ours around the loop a couple of weeks ago. Our first drive. Patti loved it. She drives fast and this is only going to make her worse. Oh well it was instant permagrin for her.

Would have loved to have seen that group!!!!

Maybe we can awaken the past and get some out, and running in our area. Nor Cal is a long drive and many miles put on the car. San Diego is always doable, but some local runs would be great. San Diego roadsters has a run planned from Fallbrook to Escondido on August 10th. We will make that for sure.
