Way too early to commit to a time. Memorial weekend or later is fine. Dunno if I want to do it with NASIOC though. Wouldn't keep me from coming though.

If I can get up there in mine (hopefully with an engine swap crossing my fingers) I will but Im alot further away from you guys. Id like to go anytime after July would be easyiest for me but i dont care if the cars done Ill take a week off school if need be. I dont know anything about the Dragon or its were abouts but if its like Canada it would be neat to do it in the fall with the colored leaves making a nice background for some good pictures :)

There's some info on it. I will be putting off my vote until I get this season's autox schedule. though we may have already decided on a date by then. Last year our weekend coincided with the Central Divisional event that ran here local, so I missed it. Don't get me wrong: I don't regret my decision to forgo CenDiv for the dragon, but I would like to avoid a repeat of this if at all possible.

Take your time guys, just throwing it out there.

Mainly I'm trying to kick myself in the ass, and let this serve as a reminder that I need to get some work done on my XT :roll:

I kind of liked the not doing it with NASIOC like last year, as Memorial day weekend will be SUPER crowded down there...

But I'm not completle against it.

They don't have an event calendar up for next year at the Dragon yet, so it's hard to decide when will be the best weekend, so I'll hold off on voting for a little longer.

Just pick when the SV650 group goes, as it has worked out every time I've been there :P

I'm fine with the Nabisco people, but I'd vote against memorial day, because I don't want to drive 2200 miles with everyone else in the USA.

Damn..I guess I better get to work too...It's only 6 months away you know...turbos....5mt....kaminari kits....SVX side skirts....yikes!

Yeah I think it might be too crowded Memorial Day. I'm gonna put in a vote for Early June.

Gonna be kinda sad not having the 6 there. But the trip up will be alot more enjoyable in the SVX. Especially if I have 4 people again :)

We definately have to come up with an itinerary, even if we only follow it loosely. Maybe we can designate people to organize certain aspects of the weekend. Like dinner, dragon runs, etc. That way a) things get organized and b) no one person has to shoulder the entire responsibility.

I voted for around the time we went in '06. It was nice as far as not being too crowded.(except the old people driving thru) I agree with nick that we need to have a small agenda. Ex. Picture shoot(so this year we can get all the xts/svxi together in the same photo as this did not happen in '06) dragon runs, dinner, and hangout night/raffle like we had-it was fun. Just a loose agenda but that way we all know the 5 w's about gathering together. So I voted for june 8-10th. Who knows which alcyone I will bring?

Greg,

Yep, hang out with Alcyone buds, and drive one of the best roads in the world (318 curves in 11 miles), and bench race... :lol:

We usually make it a long weekend Fri-Sun, but when Phil comes he usually gets there around Wednesday...

You might even net the "Farthest Distance" award if you come...but I'm not sure how far it is from you.

Steve is coming from basically Mexico, and Phil and Jeff, and Mike are from Colorado...
