Update:
When: Sunday @ 8pm
Place: Sheetz across from Lowe's
Address: 698 Valley Vista Drive, State College‎, PA‎, 16803

I realize there used to be a upark gtg thread, but seems pretty old and off topic so were starting it over :beer:. I know there are honda meets toward the stadium and some other local gtgs around campus, but the euro scene around here isnt where it should be, especially with the amount of people we have here. I work at lowes, and it would be no problem getting a meet there, but i feel something closer on campus would suit everyone better. We need some input from the locals and students of psu about a good spot and a decent time/day. I know there are enough people up here to start a good, well organized gtg, even tho it is getting cold. So let's keep this thread on topic and keep it going.

i hope to have my car back from the dealer by the end of this week



theres a football game this weekend so i dunno how crowded it may be downtown... how do you guys feel about the state college high school lot on westerly parkway? or the weis/giant lots off north atherton, they're typically pretty empty. or even sunset park down by joe pa's house.

Yeah either of the spots mentioned above seem good. Does Sunset Park have a lot of parking? Cuz that's a chill, secluded location. I dig it.

Anyways, my situation is a tight one, because I live downtown and do not keep my car here. It stays in my roommate's home garage about 15 minutes away. Unfortunately, no busses go there so I have to worry about getting rides out there and back if I want to take it out.

If I don't have VW hold on to it this week and work on it, i can acquire it Sunday. Otherwise, I might have to wait til another weekend.
