i would be up to organize it if no one else can, although i have to be there butt ass early so that probably makes me a bad choice.

Although for a location i would say the wawa right off 495 would be a good meeting location, good amount of room, gas, food and drink.

Basically, just need to pick a rally point, a time to meet up and a time to depart to Bowie, MD. Then get the word out over forums, etc. about the caravan.

I will also provide you a list of people when we open registration that specify that they are interested in a caravan to the event.

To Jonathan's list I'd like to add:
- plan an interesting route
- print and hand out the route to everyone so if someone wants/needs to stop along the way they can find their way without making everyone else stop.
- obtain the insurance waiver form from the chapter and get all participants to sign it.

Im PMing you my contact info, i should be at that social.

As far as me actually being in that caravan im not sure, since its ~40 minutes south, then about 90 up to bowie. and i have to be in bowie at 9.


In other words, it comes down to what time we want to get the caravan on the road, and what route we take. but i will most definatly help you get everything organized, there are a couple fun routes up from there, and the back roads are pretty enjoyable.

If We take the highway up and roll out at 7:30-8am i could definatly lead the caravan back up, but anything later then that and i would be missing Tech, and as Tech Coordinator i should probably be there for that.

Doug,

Got your email with contact info (thanks). Since you need to be there early, if you can set up the route and send it to me, I will get copies made to distribute and take care of the insurance waivers at the meeting point. I really don't care what time we leave, (I have to feed my horses 5:30 AM and will be up anyway). I just want to be there in time enter the show and shine, but other then that I am flexible for a departure time and would welcome suggestions.

I think that last year we started the show & shine about 10:30 am and would anticipate the same this year ...
