    That time of year is coming back up on us soon, and after some brief discussions with some of the other members from last year, I wanted to start an Official planning thread here.


    The location is changing, we are hashing out the new location right now. This *WILL NOT* be at Whole Foods this year

    It will be at Giant Supermarket, 6480 Freetown Rd, Columbia, MD 21044
    In the parking lot adjacent to Cedar Ln. (39.195528, -76.884885 in Google maps)


    Saturday, May 21, 2016 at 11:00am. Rain or Shine!

    Consider me a definite, 100% solid "Maybe." I really want to, and will try my damnedest to scrape the cash together.

    Is nobody going to comment on the "4rd Annual Meet"? Y'know, 1rd, 2rd, 3rd, 4rd....

    Anyway, I think Memorial Day is a good choice because that's a long weekend and allows people further away to make it without totally disrupting their lives. Although this doesn't work if people have already scheduled something else over three months in advance. I also think since the seasons have been running later (fall started in November and winter didn't start until January!) we don't want to get caught in the cold like the first two meets. Maybe we should have an attributable poll? That way we can see what dates the likely attendees want to do.

    ... I copy and pasted from last year. oops. Its.. "foured"... "Ford"... you know.. we are leaving our Subarus at home this year, and all bringing Focus RS's

    Alright, I added a poll. Vote for all of the dates that work for you, and we will work around the consensus.

    So I voted for the second to last, but I'm also down for the last one in May. I didnt make it last year due to my sister getting stage 4 cancer. I'm planing to make it this year, one way or another... I really do miss you guys!

    I'm also considering, if gas prices hold out, and if I trust White Lightning enough, to drive my sedan from Seattle to @Yamazaki in MD. It's a stupid long drive, but I've been wanting to do it for a while. More then likely I'll fly, like I always do, but if I can figure out a way, I'll drive. Just need to make sure the 300K EJ25D is up to it.

    Hmm.. What is it about May 21st that is making it so attractive to everyone? I am just curious about the rationale for my own edification.

    To be fair, it's only 3 more votes than the next highest. If it were like 10 more, then It'd feel like more of a blowout.

    I like it because its the latest day without being a holiday weekend. The only other day I could do was like April 16th. I am part of a group who does panels and workshops at anime-themed conventions so my weekends will be limited this year.

    And Yamazaki, bring the Cappuccino to this event if you can. I would really like a pic of it beside my Outback.

    I already planned to bring the Cappuccino and the S401 for this year, as long as it's not on May 7th (I will be in NYC at that time).

    That is true, but it is still double the next closest date.

    And with that, May 7th is deleted from the poll. I was thinking about adding more dates to the poll, but vbulletin does not allow people to re-vote for some reason..

    I'll be there, I prefer later due to it possibly being warmer.
    Yes officer, I did hit a pedestrian, but instead of dwelling on that why not focus on how many I've missed?

    Yessss. I can't believe it's that time of year already. Late April/May dates would probably work, but I'm going to check my schedule and toss a vote in soon. Can't wait!

    The date has been set as May 21st. It was very clearly the winner of that poll.

    Since the location has food and whatnot taken care of, we do not need to worry about who is bringing what... but if you want to be on the attendees list, just make a comment!

    Comment! I have some Subaru Diecast Cars (Legacys and Outbacks) that I will be handing out at this event. I believe I have 7 of each. They will be a first come, first serve basis. If this list grows beyond 14 before May 1st, I will order more.

    I was thinking the same thing with the die-cast cars-wish they sold them in bulk-got an outback on my dash

    I'm gonna ask for the time off of work, but I don't expect I'll be able to make it for financial reasons. Still, hope springs eternal. I'm not giving up quite yet.
