Default Fridays are for Franklin!!

OK... since nobody else will start this thread.. Guess I will...

Fridays are for Franklin Drive

Join us for a leisurely drive down Rt 28 (and a few added side roads, maybe) to Franklin, with lunch at Caffe Rel (if you haven't eaten there, this place is fantastic!). Returning to Fontana via Wayah Road.

Meet up at the Wildwood Grill at .... depending on your group number..... 9:00 - 10:30...

Limit is 10 cars per group!

Let me know if you plan on going, so we can determine if we need to add another group.

If you are not an experienced driver, or are uncomfortable with a spirited drive, group 1 is not for you.

If you prefer a slightly less spirited drive, sign up for the moderate pace group.

Group 1 (semi-spirited pace) Leaving from Wildwood Grill at 9:30 sharp!!
1. Lovetodrive2000 - Kathy & Mike (tour guide)
2. Looter - Denny & Marge
3. Scooterboy - David
4. Driveaholic - Bob
5. JoePhotographer - Jamie
6. the dumontster - Mike
7. tr6greg - Greg


Group 2 (moderate pace)
1. kgf3076 - Ken (tour guide)
2. batguano - Lee & Miss Linda
3. fsulli6 - Frank
4. AaronCompNetSys - Aaron +1?
5. Turbo - Nick +1?
6. SheDrivesIt - Mark & Mary
7. RobM - Rob

Here is the route Group 1 will be taking... I've cut off some of the rough roads, and added a few others!

Every year I tell Kathy that we won't lead a drive....

Well, that promise (or was it a thought?) is broken again!

I'll lead the moderate group. Depending on numbers, we may have to split lunch place again but we should all fit into Cafe REL
