    I also posted this on the New England FEP section of Facebook. Getting some participants signing up over there. I'll post a list of peeps that are planning on attending mid next week.

    BTW - we reserved / rented the pavilion at the park for plenty of space and shade. More pics coming soon.

    Hey Fred, glad to have you on board. No need to send money, just pay at the door.

    I’ve also posted this event on a few subgroups on Facebook and received some positive response.

    If you're coming or planning to come to the New England Fox-A-Que, be sure to let us know how many people you're bringing with you so we can have an accurate head count in advance.

    Thanks.

    So a bit of an update - in the afternoon (assuming we have enough interest from BBQ participants), we are planning a nice cruise (30-40 mins) from Whalley Park to the Saville Dam in Barkhampsted, CT. Here is a photo that I borrowed off the net showing the actual reservoir:


    And another photo of the parking area (borrowed)


    And the driving route(s) from google maps:

    The event is a wrap. I'm pretty sure everyone had a great time. I didn't always get the pictures of things along the way, too much running around. But here are a few of my pics. First up we had ~25 people at the BBQ with 20 cars of all vintages from FEP through current:

    After clean-up, we had a group of about 9 cars that I led on a cruise from the park to the Saville Dam in Barkhampsted, CT.




    Thanks to all that came out to the event!

    One last pic - here is the FEP group chilling. And note Capriman86 - he was trying to figure out how to take back how his comment about "much he liked the 10-hole rims on his son's white 85 GT"

    Doug and Joe did the bulk of the work and all the cooking. (When I was married, my wife wouldn't let me in the kitchen. She knew my culinary abilities, or lack thereof.) All I did was pick up a few items and collected all the money!
