I've received a lot of requests from some of the old timers to organize another big Meet before the summer is over. A bunch of us collaborated on a date, so my apologies for not posting a Poll. If you attended the Spring Meet in June of 2008, it's going to be similar. For those that missed that Meet, it was by far one of the largest 5 series/M5/M6 Meets. We had 90+ members/cars attend. Here is the picture thread from that Meet. A few pages in and you'll see how we actually shut down a major highway on Long Island. Hahahahaha!
9am - Saturday, August 22nd
300 Jericho Turnpike, Long Island, NY
E60.net & M5Board Members.
Stop asking so many questions! Just be there!
Arrive at Meeting Spot and introduce yourself to your fellow E60.net/M5Board friends and members. - Just like last time, I will arrange to have a Food Truck be on the premises to feed those that didn't catch breakfast.
Head out for a nice, long drive around scenic Long Island. Let's try and not stop traffic on the Robert Moses Parkway this time around.
Lunch along the water - Steamboat Landing - Glen Cove (Just like 2 years ago, we will have the entire Deck outside and the Parking Lot will be closed off for our cars only). This place is VERY similar to Torches on the Water from the Bear Mtn Meet. The parking lot is right next to the Deck and the water is below our feet.
We will have 5-10 sponsors with lots of goodies to give away.
The morning meeting spot was chosen based on it's ease of access via the LIE coming from both directions. It's VERY easy to get to and centrally located. It's a Business Park that has an enormous lot in the back. This lot can easily accomodate over a few thousand
cars. We should be able to get some great pictures with everyone in different formations.

300 Jericho Turnpike
Jericho, NY 11793
