    North-west Pa gathering

    Mach1tom and I are hosting a gathering at my house on Saturday August 15.
    An alternate date could be saturday, August 8 if needed
    There will be food, drink and plenty of B.S!!
    There will be a few parts cars to tinker with, cut-up or whatever.
    I am located off of interstate 79 about 1/2 hour south of Erie and 17 miles north of Meadville.
    for directions and info, PM Tom or myself.

    Hope to see you there !!
    Ron

    Obviously I will be there. 6 of my cars & most of my parts reside there full time already. I'm usually there on weekends anyway. As Ron said, there are a GT, Manta & Kadett wagon parts cars that need stripped.

    Ron's place is an excellent place for an Opel meet. 15 flat acres with 2 stocked ponds to do some fishing, a nice fire pit & plenty of parking. He also just had the concrete floor poured in his 32'x48' garage. It's easy to get to from I-90 or I-80.

    It looks like we can make it. At first, I thought it was the same weekend as Duryea hillclimb, but it's the weekend before. Can you post or PM a physical address so we can map it? Looking forward to it!

    Thanks,
    Duane

    Lodging

    Anyone thinking of coming from out of town, there is plenty of space in the yard for camping, if that's your thing.

    I will have limited floor space and maybe a bedroom if you want to bring a sleeping bag.

    There are a few nice hotels within 20 miles.
    Edinboro 12 miles, Meadville 17 miles.
    There is road construction on Interstate 79 at the Meadville exit but there is hardly any backups or delays.

    Opel ownership is NOT a requirement.

    I think of Opel meets as an extended family reunion !!!!

    I really want to make this meet and see the whole scene out there. I'm on deadline for two big projects this month and will pound away to try to clear out Friday if I can. Big ol garage, Opels and fishing? You kiddin' me?

    If I don't make it I'll be mighty po'd.

    Adam and I will most likely be there, but not in the GT. I'm sure my back wouldn't be speaking to me after a drive like that in the little red car.

    Ron / Tom: what can we bring to the party ?

    I've been meaning to bump this post.

    No need to bring anything. There will be plenty of food & beverages. A good friend owns a well known barbeque place & is supplying all the food FREE as a thank you for fixing his truck.

    I'll be going to Ron's this weekend to help get the place a little more organized. Plus I bought a quad last weekend & want to buzz it around a bit.

    See you all in a week,
    ~ Tom

    Rick, I hope you guys come out Friday. Its a long drive Sat morning. I'm probably driving to Rons in my truck Thursday after work to help do a few things. Then driving back to Pgh Friday afternoon to get the GT & the food. I should be back up at Ron's place by 6pm. When were you guys thinking of driving out Friday & have you decided to drive out on I-80 instead of the turnpike? Give me a call tomorrow.

    ~ Tom
