Now that’s how to spend a Sunday!
Had an absolute blast with the group and it was such a pleasure to meet a whole bunch of other like-minded “dubbers”. Can’t believe the turnout (HUGE) so it will be hard to top that next time around. However as word gets out how much fun we had and how many people showed up perhaps the others will come out (shame for those who had to work)
Too many new people to remember all the names so I’ll just say it was great meeting you all. Thanks to Daria for organizing the drive. As mentioned before HUGE props to Nick from VF for showing up and letting people test drive his car – regardless of who buys it down the road – that’s service!
Good to see I wasn’t the only brit there

The drive up the canyon to finish the event off was a blast also and really gave me a good excuse to test the SHS (performed great). Got lots of great compliments on my speed and how great the car looked (handling wise) and also looks wise. (now you know why FRS are good!)
Well I could ramble on for hours but I won’t. Not all the pics came out (that’s the wonder of digital) and although I’ve borrowed some great pics taken by others, at least the fancy tripod
worked to get us some very nice PANORAMIC shots of the group. So sorry there are not more pics but the Panoramic ones were worth getting the tripod out for.
Enjoy……
The Group Panoramic shot (on my fotki as HUGE hi-res)

The Ocean Panoramic shot

Group Shot

Neptune Line up

My car with Ocean View

My other favorite (borrowed) pics are…

The rear end line up

Tempting, very tempting

There are more shots in my fotki (but not many) but go there if you want the hi-res versions..

Nice pics Steve http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Thanks the Panoramic ones came out great. Shame I didn't manage to get more good ones but there is plenty of time for that. Later down the road I'm going to get a movie type camera mount and use my remote to snap some action (canyon) shots !

That's absolutely amazing!
Not quite as good looking as the line of Corrado's we had going through our city a few years back, but close!

Nice shots

A video of that canyon run would make Ian's run (can't remember the name right now) look tame! So fast and so MANY little twists!

edit: Doh, myself, Justin, and Nik are missing from the group shot as we went to 'rescue' Nik from Neptune's so he knew where we all went.

Or another fwd would be fine too I think well except for the downhill part.
The laws of physics don't play well for my car going downhill.

I've also created a website highlighting pics of Sunday's GTG. Check out the avi file on the home page of Nik's supercharged R32. You can almost make out the blur of smiles on RiGoR and #466GTI's face as they go by in that footage.

Here's the link...I've also included it in my sig for future reference.

I can find army surplus type places but I kind of wanted to pick one up locally. If it's with you right now can you get a make (brand) so we can search that way for retailers?
TIA
