Exclamation Area-wide meet - would love some input

Going from the "crazy photo op" thread I'd love to get some input from our fellow Camaro5 members on what would be the best area / time to try to accomplish this!

We have a group of about 125 local gen5 Camaro owners that are spread out over Western Washington. Not sure how big local groups to the west/south of us are. Trying to see if we can coordinate a meeting spot "somewhere inbetween" where everyone is.

Looking at a map of WA/OR it seems like some of the best bets to try are:

Mt. St. Helens
Columbia River ~ somewhere like the Gorge scenic area?
There's this Skamokawa park at the mouth of the Columbia River that we could reserve a space (yurt?) http://vistapark.wordpress.com/

DATES:

May 18 or 19
June 22 or 23
August 17 or 18

Please feel free to suggest other locations - parking for a large group would be the biggest concern. It'd be fun to find a big empty parking lot to do photos in (like a strip mall? empty warehouse or something) and then enjoy some scenic "car talk" time. Not necessarily in that order.

I would be up for the may 18/19th. After that, I have to start getting ready for sturgis. I would prefer someplace that would be a day drive. I am not really interested in an overnight thing.

I agree I'm open to the May 18/19. No over nite stay. Plus, I maybe back to a new job that might have me working Saturday's.

May 19 is good.
June weekend iffy.
August weekend good so far.

Day trip would be best.

Vancouver/Portland area with easy access would be nice. MT. St. Helens is always a nice drive on a clear day. These would work for the Oregon people to hook up.

May 19th works for me. I would also prefer a day trip instead of overnighter. Anywhere along the Columbia works for me, Mt St. Helens would work too.

I would also mention that the Johnson ridge obsevatory at Mt saint Helen's
Has an elavated viewpoint above a very big parking lot . This location is much closer to I-5 than Windy Ridge area.

May 18 is the 33rd(!) anniversary of the mountain blowing it's top. It'll probably be crowded that weekend.

I agree. St. Helens was just a thought. I'm open to any drive.

The CRCC (according to their events page) is having a st. helens meet on the 25th. Was hoping someone would chime in here to see if there's interest.
