As you all know, myself and many others here are Veterans.  A group in NJ Is hosting a Vettes for Vets cruise sometime in September. SInce I'll be in DC anyway, I might try to plan it into my weekend and go.

Info is still in flux but here are the quotes as taken from another forum

 I'm just trying to gauge the interest level here and see who might want to cruise up there with me.

  [QUOTE=From other forum]One of the members of my Vette club is planning an event for this September called Vettes for Vets. He wants to get as many Corvettes together as possible to caravan down to the local VA hospital here in NJ, and thens pend the day with the Vets, thanking them for their service, and generally having a good time.

We are looking at Saturday Sept 16 with a rain date of Sunday the 17th. When all the info is finalized I will post it on the Northeast events forum. [/QUOTE]

I'm a Vet and September 12 is my wife's birthday, I have never been to NJ, it might be a fun drive, its a long way from Deltona, FL but my wife and I really enjoyed the drive to TN. I will let you know.

I told my wife many times, before we bought our vette, how much fun they were, now she is ready to drive it with any reason. Gene

I most likely can make it also. Is it the VA Hospital in Lyons, NJ?

Keep us posted,

Have to check the schedule, but might be able to make it.
As a retired vet, it's a good way to "give back" to those who need it more than me.

Did you ever find out the exact location of this?  Do you have a link to the other forum you were talking about that will take us to the thread there?

Thanks!

Either way, I'm in!!

Oops  it's East Orange. For those of you who don't know the area, If this is the location, security is going to be a concern. Lyons would be the better choice. E.O. has really gotten bad, and if you don't know where you're going you could easily make a wrong turn and wind up in the wrong place at the wrong time   

This is an excellent cause, but E.O. is the last place you want to go to, especially with your Vettes.

glad you brought that concern up warbird. Personally I couldn't see them having a big gathering like that in East orange. No place to park that many cars for one. Parking in the streets of East orange would be foolish. I could see the headlines in the star ledger. 50 aged chevrolets taken on joy rides by East orange youth. No arrests were made, and only 2 vehicles have been found. The police chief says there is an investigation underway as to why these old cars were on the streets taking up the citizens of East orange parking places.

Here's the answer I got back to Warbirds statement:

" I heard from Jerry that he wants to start in Mendham Twp. in Morris County and roll down 287 to Lyons VA. He has yet to get me a start time. I will bug him again tonight (8-8-06) to get me the info. Thanks. "

  I guess more to follow?

That's excellent  I won't have to bring my Springfield 1911 & my Bushmaster AR-15 

Jack, the scenario you proposed would have been an easy & fun Day in EO compared to the every day crime that goes on there

I knew it could not be at the E. Orange VA Hospital, and if it was I was not going without my 50 cal. turret on top of the Vette   Starting in Mendham is great for me, thats 5 min. from my house. I hope this works out, sounds like fun

New Info for this trip ! I doubt my car will be ready to go but I wanted to give ya'll the opportunity....


" Jerry is asking everyone to meet at his house, 2 Ralston Hill Road, Mendham, NJ 07945 at 9:30 AM on Saturday morning Sept 16. At 10 AM we will start the 12 mile run down to Lyons VA Hospital.

Jerry assures me that there is plenty of room to arrange the cars along the street in his neighborhood. We have done this before when we do fun runs and have not had any problems. Thanks and I hope you can make it."
