aireeca You know, if anyone's bored Thursday night, they're offering night cruises to the Big Green Lady in New York. Considering they're closing her down for a year beginning in October, this might be a neat thing to do while you're in the area.







Nah, just kidding....

Oh no! Under those circumstances, I completely understand if you need to stay huddled in the secure confines of Penn's Woods.

epi_pusher I will be there with adidas, burnside and his wife. Unsure if to take just the wagon, the vert or both?

airsaab First timer for SOC, going on Friday. Bringing the Vert and hopefully the SPG.

BTW, looking at the SOC website, I can see why there isn't much buzz:

Pricing: Besides day passes, pricing is really prohibitive to large scale participation. It's BS that you can't get access to the parts tent with a day pass.

Schedule: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday? Why not just Friday evening, then Saturday & Sunday? 90% of people aren't taking time off from work to do Thursday or Friday events.

Info/Material organization: Website is cluttered with paragraphs and paragraphs of info. It needs to be more concise and to-the-point.
welcome to the same shit people have been complaining about for 10 years.

You should just go straight to Swedish Car Day the next weekend if your making that kind of trip.
