The idea of organizing a springtime "Northeast" regional event was brought up over in C3VR Chit-Chat.  We've got a ton of members in the NY/NJ/PA area!  Gettysburg National Military Park is a nice driving tour.  Corvette America (Reedsville PA) would be an interesting trip.  Shady Maple Smorgasbord/Dutch Country (East Earl PA) is a nice destination.  Any other ideas for different places, dates, activities, etc.?

we do have the BIG BBQ that Paul has at his house each spring. we could make that bigger and maybe have it at a park near his house. i dont want to ellect his house for tons of people to show up but still keep it near him since he got all of us together two times in a row so far.
then like the other years, he takes us to a nearby cruise night and everybody hangs out with our vettes and look at the other cars as well.
 
PLus it is such a great feeling to see a line of vettes coming in.

I would be willing to help out with a Northern New England event sometime. I know it's a long way for most people, but the White Mountains in New Hampshire have lots to see and do. Incredible senery and cruising roads. Lake Winnipesaukee isn't too far from there also.
Being just over an hour away, I could check out places to stay and we already know where to eat.Approve Tax free shopping, too.
Just an though for sometime in the future, seeing how NE was mentioned.

I am up for the run sometime up there Jeff.  If we could get three or four vettes to meet up then it is still fun but the more the merrier as they say.
 
I love it up there and the winding roads thru the mountains is definitly a fun cruise and we could stay over at some hotel/motel up that way. New england area definitly sounds like a good idea.

We could do this at one point and still have Paul's Big BBQ event at the regular time. bascially just another event for all of us Northeast members to do during the year. 
This is open to everyone in the C3VR world if you are willing to drive the distance to do it. I didnt mean to make it sound like it was just the northeast group doing this. anyone can join in and we'd be happy to see you there and take part in the event whatever it may be no matter the time of year or anything.

Do we have a date for Paul's BBQ?
What month?
Saturday or Sunday?
 
A drive in New Hamshire would be fun too.

That barbeque sounds cool!
I'm open to ideas of locations in the northeast for another road trip/gathering. 
My input is this;
The Finger Lakes Region in upstate N.Y. (About 1 hour South West of Syracuse - About 1 hour North of Binghampton) Beautiful scenery and winding mountain roads with views of the lakes.
Let's keep this going and see where we wind up.

Finger Lakes are nice driving and of course there are many high quality wineries around the lakes. Also, several Bed & Breakfast places to stay.
At Hammondsport there is the Glenn Curtiss Museum of early airplanes and motorcycles.
There used to be a paddle boat cruise on the lakes. Not sure if they will be operating in 2008.
Lots of fine restaurants and ice cream places too.

If there is any interest in a trip to NH, I'm interested. I would suggest the twisty, curvy Kancamagus Highway, NH Route 112 starting in Conway, NH to Lincoln, NH. While in Lincoln, NH we have to stop at Clark's Trading Post. www.clarkstradingpost.com. Or start in Lincoln, NH and travel the Highway towards Fryeburg, Maine.

I'm all for New Hampshire. As JPD said, the Kanc is a great road. Franconia Notch is just north of Clarks with the Cannon Mt tram. The old man fell so he ain't there any more. The Mt Washington Auto Road is about 8 miles and a 4000+ ft climb. (Has recorded snow for every day on the calendar) Need a good tranny and brakes for that. Rt 113 weaves in and out of New Hampshire and Maine in a little less traveled part of the Whites. Tax free shopping for the ladies in North Conway. No shortage of stuff to do and see here.
I'll be glad to check out lodging or anything else if needed.

If you wanted to come to the Finger Lakes area, here are some photos that show some of the scenery.

IMHO, the best time for NH is late June.
JeffM, how are the bugs in late June?

Dave, I can't imagine that those photos are of NY.
Let's face it, there are loads of beautiful places in the East.

I've been to most of those places and can assure you they are beautiful.
I am really interested in going to NH.
Only been once, in late June. Don't remember any nasty biting flies where we were.
