As the season is ending, it is our privilege to announce the success of the Mid-Atlantic region’s Third Annual Skyline Drive cruise/meet.  One of our members, civicguyinva (Mike), planned this event as always with the help of some assistance from other members.

Despite the government shutdown this past weekend and closure of Skyline Drive, they were able to get the biggest turnout for the season and had 67 cars attending this drive, breaking the previous record of 43 cars.  They stormed the highways of Virginia and, with constant radio contact, they made sure no traffic was blocked and all traffic flowed smoothly.

After a good 30-45 minute drive through the curves, they came to rest at a restaurant where Mike had reserved a table for everyone.  They all enjoyed eating burgers, sandwiches, and fries…
