PostSubject: WV Subarus First Meet?   Mon Dec 06, 2010 7:23 pm

Shew asked "when and where is the first WV Subaru meet gonna be?"

So does anyone want to have a meet sometime this winter? or any ideas?

Would probably be nice to have it in the center of the state like flatwoods but i dunno what there is to do around there.

One hour from Charleston to Flatwoods. Not a problem there, as long as the weather cooperates. But there isn't anything "to do" there. The ride up to French Creek is always entertaining. The ride back down 4 is fun, as is 20 and 19. Another group met at Sutton Dam once. That is a nice take.... but like every other similar place, winter isn't the best time to do it.

I'm thinking a Poll might be in order here, mainly to get a better idea of where everyone is. Put pins on a map, etc.

Since there isn't diddley East of Charleston, again... in the Winter, maybe Huntington would work best. Or Ashland area. Or nearby Ohio. It is the winter that's the problem, so keeping to the main/interstate roads would make planning easier. Plus there ARE things to do in Huntington and surrounds.

Besides around the Charleston area, I've personally gone to meets in Newport/Cincinnati and Maryland before, so I'm OK with about anywhere in West By God... as long as it is safe and winter allows. Given what we are seeing and what the forecast looks like in the foreseeable future, we are going to need a major change in the jet stream before we can make any meet plans, IMO.

Huntington always has really good turn outs. I'm the Secretary of the Marshall University Car Club and we have meets every Tuesday Night around 8 or 9. in the winters we move into the Big Sandy Parking garage to stay warm. Meets on weekends could be done as well!

Having it in Huntington really puts a damper for the Northern WV guys drive wise. You're looking at close to 3 hours from Morgantown/Fairmont area.

Almost the same distance for me here in Charleston as Huntington area. Easier in a way.

Plenty of parking, food, and gas. Some nice roads to ride. Multiple ways to access and return.

I still think the actual place should be determined by the TOTAL responding group's ride distance. Plus it would have to be a weekend, of course.

I think it's gonna be a drive no matter were your coming from. After this first meet I think a quartely thing could be done in the corners of the state. N S E W kinda rotation. Gives everyone a chance to be close. Being in parkersburg I know I'm always driving but don't care cause I like to meet folks and hang out.

Only time I've heard that idea, and I like it a lot. You're right, some people always get the short end of the stick any other way.

pltmrex that is a good idea to switch up the locations.

I was thinking like the h6 guy above and just have a meet somewhere like a restaurant or something where we can get a bite to eat and hang out.

I'm liking this idea! The season isn't favorable right now, but I really like seeing the sights of our beautiful state! I've always wanted to get one of those State Parks jacket. You have to visit 15 or 20 parks to get it. Going to Subie meets could tie right into my plan!

Meh that place is getting worse by the minute...

The cops are starting to really crack down on anything that even looks like it might be fast and the northern guys will have a hell of a drive if they do decide to come down. The roads up there are getting worse as we speak as well I make quite a few trips up there since my parents and quite a few friends still live up there and let me tell you this it's rough. The road has been paved recently but, with winter and all of the coal trucks that ride that road the new pavement is already starting to get holes and ruts like it had before.


Why don't we try to meet somwhere in the middle like sutton. Maybe meet up at the damn and go for a little cruize through the elk river wildelife area and take some good "woodsy" pictures and all that jazz.

I just hate for anyone to have to drive a long way but also in the same breath I know that some people are going to have to drive a long way no matter what so it really comes down to who wants to go and who doesn't.

I'm up for meeting some of you guys. Saturdays would be best. I'm in Beckley, but I have a place in Jackson County too, so I'm good for about wherever. Flatwoods is sounding best though.

We should also try and do local garage days. Where a few of us get together and turn some wrenches. I have done this a few times and had some great success up in Columbus.

I like the garage day idea...we could always use my garage but its only single wide and double deep.

flatwoods would work. We really need to just pick a place and then we can work on a date. If we are going to do this soon (during winter) i say we just meet at a restaurant somewhere so we can check out the cars then go warm up and get something to eat.

then we can talk about the cruise that we will do once the weather warms up.

The garage days thing can be anytime, anyone's house. As far as the meet just do a pole and let everyone on here decided where to meet up.
