Lightbulb more people to GTG before we choose a place

I looked at how many people want to do this, its like 10. From what I can tell, the most interested members are in CT, NY state, and MA, with intrest from NH as well.

(Hattarasguy- Watkins Glen is 5 hours away from Milford CT)

That puts MA in the best central location, with W.Mass, ie, Northampton, as the most central point for all interested parties, with a slight lean towards the NY line, depending on the distance BioBenz is willing to travel...
so, here are my thoughts.

Mont Holyoke State Park has Mt. Tom, convieniently located off I-91 in MA.
Mt Tom is available for group events and offers hiking, biking and sightseeing.
There are many cool country roads to cruise and Northampton is 10 miles away and a cool little place to visit in the spring.

Now, it is really only a coincidence that I live in Northampton, but I am really looking out for everybody when I suggest this as a central point to GTG.
I would be happy to be point person and make calls RE: park day use and what that actually means.

But here are a few time/mileages from google maps:

Orchard Park, NY to Mt. Tom- 6 hours- 381 mi (ouch)
Milford ,CT to Mt Tom- 1.75 hr 90 miles
Boston to Mt Tom- same as Milford, CT
Portsmouth NH to Mt Tom- 2.5 hrs, 150 Miles

So as I see it, it really depends on who's coming. the more people from the West the farther West it should be, East and farther East, etc. etc. But thats just my $.02.

However, we should come to a consensus fairly fast as people who want to attend will need to make arrangements.

PHEW! That was one letter away from giving some people some second thoughts!

There seems as though there might be enough interest in a CT GTG and a NE GTG, maybe at separate dates?

I know there are some philosophical differences between some members of the various forums, so I'm leery of even bringing it up, but one of the other MB sites is also working on a NE W123 Meet. Dare I suggest trying to team up and have one big ol' 123/124/whoever GTG? Or is it best to drop it and leave it alone? Be kind, I'm still a relative newbie and a self-described MB forumaholic so I don't know what lines are drawn where.

Well, I have no problem with any other forums, or anyone in any other forums.. For me, it would mean more cars to look at, and more MBZ knowledge, so I haven't got any problems with that idea...PLEASE DON'T BAN ME..

new jersey GTG ??

Well in an effort to get as many people to show as possible I think it would be a good idea to combind as many GTG's as possible.

As to the other forums why not, which one?


They also seem to have a better showing if someone is nice enough to host it themselves. IE if their is food and drink people have an incintive to hang around longer.

Somewhere in southern Mass, upstate CT is probably pretty central.

Yes, southern mass, northern Ct. would be good. We've got to come up with a finalized location though, or we'll never get the ball rolling on this one.

How about this place?

I'm honestly in no rush to go back to Devil's Hop-yard, thats where the SDL was broken into. The park in MA sounds simpler to get to, as well.

How does June 2nd sound? With a rain date of the following saturday?

Lets say 10am?

I suggested we do both of them on June 9th at Holyoke State Park. Lets see what they say, I think it would be a good idea. The more cars we can get to show the better!
