2008 Carolina (and area) Meet up

Well we had a pretty good meet up last year in Cary, NC.

This year I am planning one in Fuquay-Varina, NC. I am still working on the dates, but it will be either late June or early July.

Now for you guys.... here is a chance to bring your lady along too. My wife is opening a bead store downtown Fuquay, so the ladies can spend time there if they like (she can even teach them how to make their own jewelry), or they can go to the antique shops and tea room. There is also a farmers market in the morning.

Us guys can be across the street in the public lot doing guy talk and swapping stories. Kids want to come? There is a Model Slot car track right across the street.

We were thinking about perhaps hosting a barbecue afterwards at our place.... Home of the MAN SHED (my VERY messy work shop) and Rec Room - Tiki Bar (9' Brunswick pool table, and air hockey to boot) and the MERCEDES ONLY Parking sign. We would ask people bring something to pass. If you are going to drink we ask that you have a designated driver and obtain a hotel if you are from a distance. We can help you find one.

Any thoughts? Anyone interested?

Hey if someone down Wilmington way wants an event for the beach later in the summer, lets get that going too!

I'd try to make that. I'm a former North Carolinian and always up for a road trip. Wilmington is good, too.

Where exactly is S**t Creek? Is that near Bryson City?

Making it depends on a lot of things at this point.. And none of them are Benz related.

Thanks for putting this together. I'll try to make it there, work is finally slowing down and I hope to get some weekends off.

It's a state of being in which I frequently find myself . . . . It's all good, though.

As realtors like to say, "It's minutes from (anywhere)!

All of you are going to have to go around to all the forums and subscribe to all the NC get-together threads so you don't miss any information... I think there's like 6 or something like that...

I'd like to come in the SEC if I can be sure I've gotten it roadworthy by then. That and also if I can afford the gas it'll take to get that far . . . .
