Update: The fun run will be Sunday, May 12th. Ultimate meeting place will be behind Taco Bell in Latrobe between 11 and 12. If anyone wants to caravan down from the 'burgh, let me know where you'd like to meet up before hitting the turnpike.
Hey all, I'd like to have a funrun sometime in May along the backroads of Ligonier. There are some serious twisties to be taken and lots of fun to be had. Not to mention some really yummy roadside grilled tender chicken afterwards.

Who's all up for it and when would ya like to run?
Tim

I'm up for it if I can afford summer tires by then. My snow tires do not like twisties.

I ran on the backroads in my old red gti w/snows. They stuck really well!

Anyone else?
These roads are INCREDIBLE!

I'd like to go Tim, if that weekend is clear. I just changed jobs and don't know if I will be off just yet... That would be a great time to try out the 11" zimmermans http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I'll repost when I know for sure if that weekend is clear!

Tell your new employer that you have a wedding to go to...
Your tires are gonna marry the road! Can't miss that event!

Let;s firm up a date, I'll need to request the midnite shift. Or maybe I'll just try and request it for both days.. Also, Ligonier is East of Pgh, just follow route 30 E.
Tim, what's a good place to meet up at?? Isn't there a big parking lot just off of the exit from Rte22 onto Rte30E??

Lets shoot for Saturday. Ligonier is off of Rt 30 east of Irwin about 10-20 miles.
Theres a large Sheetz not far off the Turnpike on the left side at the 2nd light. We could meet up there and head down to Latrobe from there. We usually meet behind the Taco Bell in Latrobe which is just past the Latrobe airport.

Garey: EDIT- lol, it's ok.

I'm leaning towards Sunday. Just cause it is easier for me to make it. I now have two running dubs (knocking on wood) so I'll be there in something.

If it's not a Sunday, I can't make it for sure. But don't change it because of me. I'm not even sure I could actually make the Sunday.

Ray: That was one hell of a sentence for Monday morning. So you're in for Sunday more than likely if I followed that and not sure about Saturday
