RICOA SHOW - June 29, 2014
 
THE SHOW IS COMING UP QUICK!!!

Show: Rhode Island Chevy Owners Association (RICOA) All Chevy Car Show
Date: Sunday, June 29, 2014
Place: Diamond Hill State Park, Cumberland, Rhode Island
Time: 9:00 - 3:30 (we'll shoot to roll in around 9:15 or so, based on last year)
Afterparty: :help:

To those of you who are new to the group, this is our absolute biggest show. It's a great meet and greet for everyone in the club. And, like the last four years, we CANNOT miss this! We've take the trophy for best club participation four years in a row, and it must continue. In 2011 we were given our own class for the fifth generation Camaros, and in 2012 they even split the class into stock and modified classes. The first year, in 2010, we went in with 20 cars; in 2012 we went in with with 48 or 49 cars; 2013 with 63! And let's not forget the looks on everyone's face (especially the Corvair Club) when we all pull in as one group.

Oh yea, for those of you new to NEC5, we roll together. That sig pic down there didn't just take itself. The last stop of our rolling caravan before we go into the show will be at the Emerald Square Mall where we'll line up again in some formation for a "class picture".

Get the word out - save this date - sign up as a member here online if you haven't already. My clipboard (with the NEC5 logo on it) will be in full force:thumbup:

This is really important, especially for those of you meeting us at the show - When you fill out your registration, be sure to write in "NEC5" for the car club!!!

LINK TO LAST YEAR'S PRE-SHOW THREAD

LINK TO LAST YEAR'S POST-SHOW THREAD (I don't think we made the homepage last year, did we...?)

I really don't have any good ideas for the picture this year. I want it to be something original, and if united1 is not around, it can't be very complicated either, as he and his family would always mark the ground before we got there. Last year, someone suggested some type of organized chaos. I may run with that.

We have several rally points, so when you post your reply to join, let me know what rally point you're going to meet us at. This will make it easier for me to plan.

Rally Points:
1. Barns & Nobel - Burlington, MA
2. Dunkin Donuts - Hopkington, MA
3. Emerald Square Mall - Attleboro, MA

There are also mini rally points that some folks put together, like the guys from RI and western MA. If you want to discuss that as well, go ahead, but let me know your final stop.

I'll post times and directions / images when I get a chance.

RALLY POINTS
TIMES ARE SET!!!

For those of us coming from "the North"
Barns & Nobel, Burlington, MA, leave by 7:00am
We will be meeting near the Burlington Mall off of 128/I95 (and Rt3) and roll out by 7:00am. We are not meeting in the mall, but in the parking lot between Barns & Nobel and Chili's.
If you are coming on 95S, you will take exit 32B for Middlesex Tpk, Burlington, Arlington. As you come off the exit, stay to the right and merge onto Middlesex Tpk. You will drive just past the B&N (on your left) to the first light where you'll have to get into the left lane to make a U-turn, then move to the right to turn into the parking lot. I would say to pull into the Chili's lot facing the road.
If you are coming down Rt3S, take the last exit, Exit 25A for I95N, Rt3S. You'll follow that loop down and watch for the signs for the Mall. Google Earth doesn't have good pictures for this part of the interchange, but keep your eye out for Middlesex Tpk. As you get off the exit for the mall and the turnpike, stay to the right. You'll merge onto Middlesex, pass under the interstate and stop at a set of lights. At that set, you should see B&N up ahead. Again, move to the left, and at the next set of lights, take the U-turn and move right into the Chili's parking lot.
See the overhead or 3 and 95 with the thumb tack for the B&N and Chili's

Meet up point for those of us coming from the North and West
Dunkin' Donuts,92 West Main Street, Hopkinton, MA, 01748-1642
, leave by 7:50am
This is the first exit off of I495 South after getting off I90.
There is the DD's and the side street behind it. There is plenty of room for all of us there as we found out last year. There is not enough room in the DD's lot...soooo....who ever shows up first, say the first 3 or 4 cars, park in the DD's lot there, and then have everyone else line up in the street just behind the DD's. It is Elm St. Direct the rest of the cars onto Elm street. We'll line up on the side of the road there.
We should plan on leaving here by 7:50am for the mall.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/attach...7&d=1308272047
If you are coming from the Mass Pike, take the Exit 11A for I495
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/attach...9&d=1308359489
After the toll booth, be sure you stay to the right for I495 South
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/attach...0&d=1308359489
Take I495 South to Exit 21A, West Main Street, Hopkinton. It looks to be the first exit after getting onto I495S
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/attach...1&d=1308359649
After coming off the exit, watch on the left for what I think is a Mobile on the Run with a Dunkin inside. It's the first place you can turn in left, so you can't miss it.
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/attach...2&d=1308359683
There isn't enough room in the lot, DO NOT PARK IN THE LOT, but rather we line up on Elm St right behind the gas station.
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/attach...3&d=1308359735

From here we'll go to the Emerald Square Mall...

Final meet up point for those of us heading to the show together
Emerald Square Mall,999 S. Washington St, North Attleborough, MA 02760, pictures taken by 9:00am
Just off of Route 1 and I295. We'll be meeting in the parking lot adjacent to the parking garage. When you pull in, there will be someone directing everyone into formation. I'm hoping we can park where we need to and take all pictures and get out of there by 9:00. This way we hit the show for 9:15. We'll see how it goes ;)
Here is what I'm thinking. The north Camarovan, leaving from Hopkington, should arrive around 8:30am. If those of you not coming down from the north start arriving at the mall around 8:00, you can start lining up ahead of us and maybe be ready for us by the time we arrive.

There are a bunch of ways to get to this mall depending on where you are coming from...I'm not going to list them all...use Mapquest :P...the light blue line shows the way the rolling convoy is traveling...

The thing to note is that we are forming up for a group photo in the lot right next to the parking garage, which is next to Macy's.

I'll meet up @ the mall, probably w/ a small convoy from the MA South Shore.

lakersftbl69 04-30-2014 12:55 PM

IN! I'm gunna say I'll meet at the mall along with a few other guys I'm going to assume as we head up from the Plymouth area

FAIRNOT LZ1 04-30-2014 01:02 PM

I'm ready!:thumbup:
You must have some idea's kick'in around Nick?!?! :iono:
I do like the 5 in a circle but we are going to have way to many for that ... can we add something to it? ... double circle? :iono:
Or a bow tie with a 5 in it ... I don't know THINK! :bonk:

molloni 04-30-2014 01:20 PM

I don't know Al...the bow tie with a 5 in it would be gigantic and un-doable. The circle 5, while it would look ok with a second circle around it, may not be possible without united1 to do the ground layout ahead of time. That 5 was a huge deal, and he did a great job marking the ground where each car had to be. Without those marks, forget it. The bow tie wasn't difficult because I used the "grid" that was already part of the parking lot markings. It's not that I'm purposely shooting down your ideas, buddy, but knowing what it takes to put the cars in place...that's why I know it may not work out.

I'm thinking some type of "patch work" pattern. Let's see how many sign up, and we can go from there.

I love how everyone on FB just assumed that once we lined up that bow tie we couldn't get out of our cars, nor could we "unpark", but with enough forward thought, I mean come on! It was easy!

Glad to help , but I just take what's on paper and make it work on the ground . It takes a lot of planning on your part , and the help of other members to set the cars up with me to make it all happen . Now let's get some ideas flowing .

Hey it's a fun show and let's face it a $4 vendor small ass frozen patty burger is dumb if you can get a group together and do it cheaper overall.

both great ideas just gotta remember the lot size if we bang out more then last year somehow which is always likely with all the new guys we're gonna run outta room.
