Pac NW GTG?

Are we going to have a Pacific NorthWest Get Together this year?

I wish I could have made last years but my ignition switch didn't want to go along with it

WOW!

It has been an entire year, hasn't it?? I missed out, too. My family is going back east to visit the in-laws late July/early August. Sometime around the end of next month would be good for me. Latourell falls has a sweet little picnic pavillion. Not a ton of parking at the picnic area, but there's the lot up on the old highway, also. Silver Falls state park could work....

Sounds like a good place to me, end of this month or towards the beginning of next month works for me.

Last weekend of July is out though (Hydroplane races here)

I'd like to

Wow, this year it could be the reunion of all who missed last year... like me. I'm game for latter half of July (say, 24th or 31st, ideally). That should give me some time to get my oil cooler leak fixed and the engine cleaned up on the 240D. Charmalu, are you going to be up here at all this summer?

YES!!! We will be there. . I was wondering if something was going to materialize.

Now, what car to drive? Decisions Decisions.

It can be difficult for me to get out, but I would like to plan for it. I have been to meetings in the past for my other cars and had a good time.

Early August.

When's the hydroplane race, Conn? How's about the week after?

Looks like I'll be closing on the new house 7/22. I'll be a little tied up for a while, with moving and all.

I too would like to attend, but can't make it end of this month or early next month. I'll keep an eye on this thread and make it if I can.

I had a fun time with replacing my rear door check strap that I'd like to share (Fastlane can't get replacements anymore.. so I modified one off another car to fit).

I could make it if we do anytime after mid July. I missed last years, so I'd love to make it this year.

Aug 6th works for me. It may conflict with Seafair but we don't exactly have a stellar showing from people in the Seattle area...

Say What?
August 6th works for me unless my kid is still playing little league.

Hoping to have my nephew's car in shape for that too!

ps. Somewhere besides Seattle is the best place to be during SeaFair.
