Post GTG for SoCal

Several have suggested that it is time for another GTG, and I agree! The season is marching on, and Thanksgiving will be upon us in a couple of weeks, along with holiday shopping, etc. So, suggestions are in order: Sundays have usually worked well, so if this is going to happen, we are going to have to keep it pretty laid back. Weather and time constraints make a BBQ less likely to happen, so this one could be a large parking lot with nearby dining. A shopping mall, or favorite eatery somewhere.

Jump in with suggestions for dates, times, and locations. If we can get a quick consensus, we can set this up and make it happen!

Count me in.

How about Sunday the 24th. It is short notice but considering Thanksgiving is the following weekend I assume most everyone will be around.

I know a few of us will be coming from the greater San Diego area so it would be nice if we can meet somewhere in the middle. I'm thinking Ortega Highway right now. It would be a awesome drive and there are a few parks we can meet at(weather permitting).

What does everyone think.

well, I'm from san diego too, and I'd love to come! as far as I see, everyone's in san diego [or they just say "california" or "so cal"] so why not have it in san diego? I'm down for whatever, and if I still have the 450sl, you guys can see it before I sell it.

The 24th works for me. A little over a year ago, we met at the top of a mall parking structure. I forget the name but here's a picture of some of the cars that showed up:


We ate at Ruby's in the mall last time, but maybe there's something else there???

as mark said, there is a benzsport gtg on the 16th it will start at either fashion island or brabus hq.

It should be in the events and gatherings section on benzsport.

I wont be attending the 16th GTG, but for those of you that want to, you may want to check into the thread on benzsport.

as for the 24th, I'll see what I can do to make it, but the next month or two does not look very promising for me for much of anything. plus add on to that the fact that every bit of free time I have is spent with my new girlfriend, it'll be hard to get away for the day. But she might be the one, so its all good.

I hope that my car is ready soon. I'll be checking up on it again on friday.

Alon

I'm o.k. for the 24th.

We've had two GTG's at the upper level of the parking structure at the Mission Viejo Mall. That works fine for me, or anywhere else.

Alon,

Will your car be done by that time? That would be great to see the new body kit your installing.

I think you should bring your girlfriend, I plan on bringing my wife hopefully so she'll have company while we talk shop

I think we should firm up the 24th, now we have to figure out where and what time.

Paul,

Where exactly is the Mission Viejo Mall in relationship to the major highways, just want to get a general idea.

The Mission Viejo Mall is just off of the 5 frwy, just north of San Juan Capistrano, you can exit either Crown Valley Parkway or Oso Parkway.

That sounds like a great place to meet. I can still drive over the Ortega Hwy.....hopefully my wife won't get too sick

Does this sound acceptable for everyone else?
