March - Oklahoma Meet

Okay guys, time to start planning again. As a few of you know, I feel aweful at the way lunch turned out last weekend, with the way our numbers have grown, only restaurants with some kind of separate seeting area that we can reserve will do. That being said, I had originally hoped to go to Pops for March, but knowing it may still be (maybe) too chilly to sit outside, I'm not really wanting to take the risk. Someone mentioned driving up to Mt. Scott. This is located in/near Lawton, OK. I would appreciate it if someone from this area or anyone who has visited before could give me a bit of info about the location and what is near by. I assume we would meet somewhere in Lawton with groups traveling in together from Tulsa, OKC, etc. Just need to know if this is somewhere we can stop at the top and have a picnic type thing or if we should all gather and eat before or afterwards.

Thanks guys!

Visit Google Maps and search for "Mount Scott Oklahoma." Click the "Satellite" button and then start zooming in. There is a LOT of parking at the top. Funny, I've been up there a million times and have taken tons of photos, but never took one of the parking area! The road leading to the peak is on the south side of the mountain and at the base is a section with picnic tables (the road that is on the south side of Hwy 49.)

The wildlife refuge is west of I-44 and a few miles north of Lawton. It would probably be best to meet between 44 & the refuge instead of going all the way to Lawton and then having to backtrack. While your on the Google Map, click the "Search Nearby" link and search for restaurants. Meers Store & Restaurant is a popular place and Fisherman's Cove has some very good seafood.

The Meers Restaurant will not be able to handle all of our cars. They are packed on weekends so unfortunately I would not try there plus their parking lot is not that big. There is a Loves truck stop right off 44 (the exit you need to take to get to the refuge and Mt Scott) that everyone could meet at then drive up to Mt Scott. What would be cool is if we could get everybody to drive on to Fort Sill and take a picture at the outside displays. The only thing you need is a drivers license and insurance to get on unless you already have a military sticker (like me).

Fort Sill would be bomb. Cruise from Mt. Scott to Fort Sill. and maybe stop at a restaurant on the way or in between those two locations. It's been forever since I've been to Lawton. Last time was when a few buddies of mine and I went 2 Night Trips for Cole's 21st.

We have the usual restaurants (Chili's, Applebees, Golden Corral, etc) but nothing directly off the Hwy except Cracker Barrel.

We can come up with something. I have some ideas, but need to do some scoping out on parking availability.

How many of us live in this area?

I've seen a lot of new Camaros around here lately, but no one seems to be friendly. I always wave or honk and wave when I see one, and they just look at me, or don't. I'm sure I'm known as the crazy old lady in the orange Camaro.

I lived in Lawton for a few years but thats been a long time a go. Last year we did a motorcycle cruise to Mt Scott but there was just a few of us. I agree, Meers would not be able to handle all of us. I seem to recall just a Burger King with big parking lot outside of Medicine Park. I would prefer to hit Mt Scott later in the spring when it's all green but I its not about me Maybe we can just go twice! Maybe one of the local guys can get Chili's or the like to commit to our group.

I am from Lawton and know the Mt Scott area very well. There is a great place in Medicine Park that could accommodate us. It is called "The Old Plantation". They sit right on the river (just after the dam at Lake Lawtonka) just a mile or 2 east of Mt Scott. In fact, you have a great view of Mt Scott from there. We could start out meeting at Loves and then all travel to Old Plan... from there (about 10 min drive). Then cruise up the mountain and maybe through the rest of the wildlife refuge where you are sure to see some buffalo, longhorn, and other animals. There is plenty of open road and traffic is not bad. It should be very easy to keep in a group, unlike last week!

I would not mind contacting the OP if this is what the group wants to do. I promise, this would be a great place to meet.

also...

I know Ft Sill would be fun but the reality is, it would be a real hassle. Getting on and off Post without a military ID has been very difficult since 9/11. Those without stickers (I assume all of most of us) would have to check in at the gate and be subject to search. The police are VERY strict and tickets are literally handed out for 1MPH over the speed limit. I am a military brat so I can relate to this, lol. Speed limits are 15 MPH in alot of places and no more than 40 anywhere else.

Not trying to hate on Ft Sill, just think we have much better opportunities for a successful meet in the wildlife refuge.

Sounds like an excellent plan. You want to go ahead and contact them and see if they WILL reserve seating for us. Unlike the last place that said they would, they didnt. If we choose somewhere else, we can just cancel.

And from your other post, I agree, would be to much of a hassle for a large group to get on base. Crusing the wild life where the buffalo roam sounds better.

Speaking of Buffalo, I know Buffalo Wild Wings will reserve a large space for us. So we can keep that in mind next time we do an OKC meet. Buffalo Wild Wings in Moore (park behind in the large parking lot) then cruise to lake or wherever.

Didnt mean to get ahead - it just came to mind.

Sorry I went MIA, all of this sounds great and I agree NO MORE LOUIE's I too called and said 40, I even said 40 when I went in to tell them we were there. . .what did we get, table for 20???? Seriously?? Like Ramsey said, I guess they thought I was exagerating, but seriously, if a you can't accomodate for the party. . .TELL THE PARTY, you may be losing potential busy, but the way they handled it, I know I won't be returning. . .I'll get off my soap box now. .

Anywho, this Old Plantation place sounds great, as long as they truely can seat ALL of us. Let me know how this works out.

Going back to my soapbox: For those who went without lunch last weekend let me apologize. I understand it was a majority of our new folks that got swept to the side and I feel TERRIBLE for that, we will make sure that this does NOT happen again. As Tracey said, "We are new at this, hopefully they understand."

Foster they have relaxed some of those restrictions on post. Yes you can not speed but they do not hammer you for 1 mph. This was just a suggestion and since I am retires and work on post I may be able to talk to the MP,s to see about how they could facilitate such a big group. I just thought it would be good to cruise from Mt Scott to post that is all.

Be advised that the old Plantation is not open all the time nor when it is open it isnt for very long. They have some weird times now.

I will make contact with them at some point this week. Trust me, we should not have the problems we did at Louis. I know you all tried hard but the bottom line was Louis was just too small a place. I will ask for an area large enough for 50.

Here is a link to the place and there are more links to Medicine Park. Check it out.

I assume we are shooting for March 13?

Coop--I am not trying to shoot down your idea... really. All I am saying is that with the potential hassle and the difficulty staying in a group, I think our time (as a group) would be best spent out at the refuge. If people would rather do Ft. Sill, fine by me. I will say that just 3 weeks ago, I was going to church with my wife's family at New Post and I had to get searched. Most of the time I get checked in with my DL, logged on their clipboard, and sent on my way but it's not always the case.

The Old Plantation is a great place, they have been there for years. I remember 25 years ago, Granny owned the place and did the cooking, and could she cook! She was in her 80s and worked nearly every day. The food was always fantastic. Medicine Park is very quaint and has some beautiful places for picture taking.

The refuge is a beautiful place, though I have to agree, it will be much prettier a few weeks or a month later. With the moisture we've had this winter, the spring in the refuge is going to be gorgeous, very colorful with wildflowers. I think it would be great going through the refuge, then coming back south to Cache on 115, and taking 62 east to Lawton. Give people around here a good look at a lot of Camaros!!

Oklahoma International Auto Show Question..MUST READ !!!

OK, guys.. As you all know my Wife and I put on the International Auto Show on OKC. It looks like we might be able to put all our Camaro's in the Auto show.They would all be parked together and all roped off, so nobody could touch them......

Would any of you be interested in that? The one thing is that all the cars would have to be left at the show from March 4th(thursday) through the 7th (Sunday).. All car owners pick up there cars on Sunday after the show.5-6 pm Now this is just a thought we had and it is not for sure, we haven't decided if it would be all 4 days or just have our group there for one day... This is a Big show with all the dealers, Etc... And of course, you would get free tickets for all 4 days.....

Please E-mail me at tobysauctions@cox.net if this is something that you might be interested in doing... More news to come.
Maybe Bad news, or maybe good new. we just had to see if it would interest any of you first.....LOL See ya
