California Camaro Meet

Hey guys and girls just an idea. We had a great turn out here in Bakersfield and I was thinking we should do a Massive Camaro meet. We should do it around the Fresno Area. I think we could get all of the Camaro5 families together and anyone else that has a Camaro too. If anyone has an opinion on this post it up and Lets get something started for this summer.

i'd be down...as long as i didn't have to work. saturday would be best. if it's on one of my weekends off, i'd be off friday, saturday, and sunday. that way i wouldn't have to drive home to l.a. and work the next day.

I think this is a great idea, not because I live in Fresno, but because its the midpoint between SoCal and NorCal. You know I would definitely be there for the meet! I hope this happens cuz I know it would be exciting! There is a great park (Woodward Park) here that would be good for the meet also.

oh...and Trevor thanks for being a good host in Bakersfield, I had fun seeing all the different generations there.

This sounds like an awesome idea, BUT, I have talked to a few people and I'm thinking a place like San Louis Obispo would work better, I think that'd be a bit more fair to the SoCal guys as Fresno is much closer for the NorCal folks. Or maybe even Bakersfield??

Bakersfield is 4+ Hours from San Diego so I think that's a good place or SLO would work great for me too. How about some time in September or October where the weather start to cool off a little?

SLO usually cool year round; or at least has an ocean breeze; no offense to our central valley brothers and sisters, but SLO area is very scenic and a little bit cooler; I was hoping for sooner than later, but can do any month.

Meet

Actually Fresno is a close to the geographic center of the state as you can get. For people coming from north or south its another 2 hours of driving once you leave 5 or 99, heading for the coast. I think doing it in a central location for the first time would draw more people because it is basically a single shot, get on 99 or 5 and when you get off, you are at your destination.

If this were successful, and you will certainly know by the number of people that show up, then maybe the 2nd all Cali meeting would be at a place close to the center of the state, other than Fresno. The people who attended the first would almost certainly attend, plus those not able to amke the first would be inticed by the numbers. Just my two cents, but making it easy for all should be our main concern. Like I said, if your coming down from Redding, or up from San Diego, it's basically one freeway all the way to the destination.

Trevor I'm up for it, I think it's our turn to host anyway

Fresno would seem a good midway point at which to meet, and our group up here is raring to go! Will keep you posted on a good meeting place. When were you thinking might be a good time to do this?

I agree with Rob and trevor fresno is pretty centralized in cali. hell there is a even a part of the highway in fresno that has a palm tree and a pine tree next to each other to symbolize the exact center of california. I understand its a bit far from socal and but I think Trevor is trying to get everyone for a "big" cali meet. and in all honesty SLO is too far for norcal and even us cencal peeps. so to be "fair" for norcal and socal Fresno is the logical spot imo. if the momentum can be built up for this then we can have guys from the bay and sac along with guys from socal. and if we time it right we can make it a camaro weekend. Fresno is not far off the beatin track from yosemite and im sure 50+ cars in summer heading up the twisties of that scenic drive would inspire alot of commitment to making this happen. My .02cents
