Thumbs up New England GTG 6/24/06!!!!!!

Ok guys tis the season! Lets have a show.

We need a place to host it, somewhere:
Where we can cook, and have lunch.
With bathrooms.
Not in NJ! We drove to NJ last fall, time for the NJ guys to head north!

I'm thinking somewhere in CT or maybe RI, those two states are pretty central. I'd host it at my house frankly but the yard is to small.

Anyone have a yard big enough to park 15-20 MB's?

Thumbs up

I would be willing to offer my place up for a get together in RI. It's not a mansion by any means, but I could easily host 20-30 MB's and related guests for a saturday of food, chat, and libations. I am about 4 miles from the PVD airport, 10 miles from Providence, 25 miles from Newport, 50 miles from Boston... and lots of great things to do around RI... Let me know what you all think.

The park in Bristol is Colt State Park - also a good place...

Looking forward to the NE get together! - Fred

Thumbs up 2006 New England meet

count me in,anywhere in New England is fine for me, should we set a theme, like, best way to get the best mpg's or some thing in along that thinking. We are all in the middle of the highest recorded fuel prices ever in this country, maybe we could swap ideas as to get the most out of our diesels.
