    How about the great falls national park? there are HUGE parking lots, grills, picnic tables.. plenty of space for some lawn chairs..

    And for clarification, I'm talking about at the Great Falls Park Visitor Center Location.. not the one to the right of it on the map.

    http://www.nps.gov/gwmp/grfa/pphtml/facilities.html

    http://www.nps.gov/gwmp/grfa/faqs/ac...es.htm#picnics



    As far as the fees list for the park... I've been there about 3 times and never charged. Just an idea and it's away from the city... so no inner city driving.

    Would be better for those coming from the I66W area as well. :-)

    I live near there also, Windsor at Arbors apt complex.
    umm I've no clue about a Honda Dealership, so I'm gonna say no..

    I'm RIGHT off I395 and Glebe. If you're going North on I395 and get off at Glebe going East, and keep going right, you'll see a Pizza Hut there... I'm kinda across from there.

    I do know landmark mall though Bought all my Craftsman Tools at that Sears :-)

    Also, I had no idea what cars to look for when I got there.

    I am definitely in for a monthly meeting on a weeknight, not so much on a weekend.

    I'm up for the monthly as well. I work 3 on 3 off (6pm-6am) so it shouldn't be a problem. As far as knowing the car's... lol I know Sonic and I have our avatars as'm... an Idea... for the next meeting, when we create the list of who's gonna be there, in the initial post we can post the names with a link (or the avatar) to their car or something next to the names.. might help

    i noticed theres a fridays about 2 miles away - i would be down to go there for a late lunch after ... or even someone's house and we could all chip in and have a nice cookout... what yall think?
    I showed up late (3:00), but come one how many people all show up half an hour early anyways?

    I am definately up for a monthly meet, as long as we have maybe a two hour time frame.

    hey hey calm down lol I was the only one there early and I said it was to shoot photos of my car. SonicX and I hung around till 2:30-40, but didn't see anyone else so we jetted... I am planning though for the next one, wherever we do it... bringing a lawn chair and setting it in front of my car and chill'n for at least a few hours :-)

    GOOD GOOD... so far we have 3 or so for a monthly meet

    I was just giving you guys a hard time. sounds like we all just missed each other - maybe someone should bring a giant mp3car banner next time, so we don't have confusion where to meet?

    lol I know.. yeah I mentioned the MP3Car signs/banners too. That, knowing the cars that'll be showing up, and a more exact location should make things better. Kinda sad we all missed each other, I was really looking forward to seeing more. Next month though, for sure Even if I have to take off work a few hours damn it.. lol

    lol just imagined myself pulling into the lot, with the top down on the convertible, a huge MP3CAR.com Flag just a whipp'n in the wind... damn, the looks we'd get

    To borrow a post from another thread...

    The good outcome could be, we'd build some good friendships, and meet new people, and we don't always need to discuss our car-pc projects, we're all quite nerdy, we could discuss many things.

    and we won't ahve to decide on a day to meet, it usually is our biggest issue.. and location.. we should proably keep the same location, expect for special events or something, that way you don't kneed to be "in the know" to show up and hang out.
    I think we should do something similar. Having something like the every 3rd Thursday or Saturday of a month and have the location the same (except for the special events), so like in the quote above, "you don't have to be in the know to be able to show up and hang out".

    So we should setup a location that's "pretty" good for all involved (I know it's impossible to please everyone), and pick a day that would stay consistent. Also, make it for a set amount of time, so that if some aren't able to make it within the first 30-45min... there will still be people around when others do show up. Say a timeframe of 3 hours or so? Not too bad for a weekend. I will be one of the ones from now on that will be there the full time (unless I'm working that day).

    Yay or Nay??
