August Meet

Anyone down for settin up an august meet?

Chido, hows that F1 Braintree location looking? hows that kit coming along?

hopefully, if we hook this up, there'll be a better showing than the June meet.

Also, i am aquainted with a car photographer who (if hes legit) would come down to take some pics. He says hes got some good connections, so potentially this could end up gettin in some mags.
Let me know if you all want me to check on that, ill see if hes for real about it and who his connections are with.
TIA

F1 would be sick, but it gets pricey. plan on it being at least $60 per person. check it out at www.f1boston.com. how about going to F1 and then to castle island or hopkins park afterwards? if you dont want to go to F1, then just meet at the park.

as for a date- how about the weekend of august 19th? sat or sunday- doesnt matter. for those checking out this thread (as not all mass members do)- start PMing people you know in the massachusetts area. and as always, invite everyone you know- even if they are not on v6p. anyone on gen7forums or acurazine? get it out there too.

if everyone takes 5 minutes, we can make this good and actually worth having a photographer show up (maybe).

I'm down for a meet. Sunday's are the best days for me. Hopefully this will be a better turn out than the June meet though. Let me know when you guys choose a location. F1 would be cool, but I have a feeling that some people might not come because of the cost. I know that I wouldn't want to shell out $60 just for a meet if money was tight. We might want to consider a less expensive alternative.

I would need more advance notice that may be too soon for me, and the F1 thing was a suggestion because ii went one time and i saw vwvortex was having a meet there.

I'd like castle island that would be a cool place to meet.

hopefully i can make this one i usually work thats why i would need more advance notice but we'll see what happens.

hit up the poll. tell your friends. we'll pick a day and the start a roster to see whose down for sure

And so i guess F1 may not be the best place due the $$$. So how about castle island? whats the low-down on that? wheres it at?

Are there any other suggestions that people might have for where the meet is gonna be that isn't going to cost too much? I'm not opposed to spending money for a meet and the activities, but $60 to go to F1 is kinda high.

It looks like most people are interested in Sunday for a meet, now all we have to do is pick a spot and a time.

aight- well it seems like sunday has the overwhelming majority for a date- agreed? now for a place-

1-castle island is pretty cool. its a long stretch of beach/parking lot down in southie. i dont know if your "allowed" to grill down there (i know there are no public grills). the good thing is that there is almost always parking available, and its right on the water.

2-hopkins park- ive never been to- how did it work out last time?

if you guys want to bbq and chill, then we need to find out who's going and what everyone's gonna bring. or someone go on a bbq run and everyone pay up at the meet. who actually wants to go on sunday the 20th (and can make it)?

I'm always down for a BBQ meet!!

Are you talking about the park in Hopkinton for the 2nd option? If you are, that's a huge park that has grilles for BBQing. When we went last time it got really busy so we didn't have too many parking spots at the pond area after a while. It also could have been because it was really hot that day and it was Fathers Day.

That being said, I think Castle Island would be a cool spot since I haven't been there for a meet yet.

hey, its all gravy to me guys, sunday the 20th is cool. ill bring some chow and give that photographer guy a call. lets just get that final decision on a place.

Is it Castle Island or back to Hopkins Park?

im down for either, if you plan to attend this meet, post whether you have a preference for either location listed above or not.

Also, i think about 1:00 or 1:30 would be a decent time, right? right about lunch time, make up some burgers, snap some shots etc. sound good?

I'm down with both of them too, but for the people that want to grille (like me) I'd have to vote for Hopkinton State Park (not because it's closer to me than Castle Island). If we want to secure a parking area all for ourselves there, I would say that we should stay away from the parking areas for the beach and resovoir.

Does it cost anything to park at Castle Island? It's $5 to park at Hopkinton State Park.

Anyway, if you guys are up for Hopkinton State Park, I'd be glad to bring some stuff to grille. I still have some charcoal left over from the last meet that I didn't use.

Damn, I'm torn. I'd vote for Hopkinton because it's closer to where I live and because I'm down for BBQing, but I'd also vote for Castle Island because of the beach and free parking.

I'd have to say Hopkinton gets my vote. I love to BBQ, plus it seems that all you guys are leaning towards Hopkinton anyway.

Hahahaha. Which one is it? J/P man.

I'm not against either place, evn though I like to BBQ and Hopkinton is close. I've never been to Castle Island, so I think that would be cool too. Either way, I'll still go to the meet regardless of where it is.

Is there anyone here that wouldn't come out to Hopkinton or Castle Island for whatever reason?

ill go to either one. i think just as an attempt to be decisive that we should do castle island. its in boston, yeah, but its on the beach- we could get some nasty shots, especially if we can get our cars on the beach or even get a ocean sunset horizon background goin on. thatd be sick. PLUS, after we're done, we could go to like jillians or sumtin up there. parking's mad cheap in the fenway area, like only $8. and if ya feel more comfortable putin all these rides in a garage, its $10 to park inside fenway park. whataya think guys? **correction on that- that whole weekend is the sox games against the yankees, fenway area will be PACKED and parking is around $28-40 haha nvm**

also, okay, is castle island park really on the water? cuz i just google earthed it and its showin that its not. who's been there? if its not, theres carson beach right next to the bayside expo ctr, then there pleasure bay park just north of that. then theres constitution beach right behind logan (if ya want some planes in mid-take off in the shots haha) just a few ideas.

I'm calling that photographer dude tomorrow too. ill let you guys know how it goes when i reach him

Also, theres two ppl who voted to have this meet on the 19th and one who voted to have it the weekend after.... whose votes are those? will you not be able to make it if its on the 20th?
