    New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    Hello all,

    Just posting on here to see how many are interested in getting together for a Porsche top-down drive (or sunroof-open for you non-cab 911 owners) out of the city to the Hamptons/Montauk sometime this summer. The weather is getting warm and I know a lot of you are waiting on deliveries of your 997 Cabs or 987's. For the Porsche newbies and veterans alike, this should be a great opportunity to meet some of the fine people we've been interacting with here on Rennteam that live in the NYC area (and those of you that will be near or in the NYC area). All ages are welcome.

    Also, I am open to suggestions on possibly scheduling things to do for a weekend while we are out there (other than taking pictures of each other's cars!!). There are a lot of things to do out there, including awesome beaches , fine dining and pretty good night life (when publicists aren't running people over with their Mercedes ) I guess you can think of this as a more focused version of the PCA outings.

    Feel free to respond on here or private message me. Looking forward to hearing from all of you!

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    We usually spend a long weekend at Guerneys each Summer. Depending upon the dates, it may be a go. Great ride down from upstate. Ferry from Conn. to Port Jeff.and the rest is easy(except for the Hamptons traffic).I like the idea!

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    Sounds like a great idea! I take Factory Delivery next month, but my car should be States-side by mid-June. By then, having been deprived of my car for six weeks, I'll be desperate for some great touring opportunities.

    Is Guerney's part of the annual PCA events? I like the idea too. Hopefully this thread stays at the top of the forum so more and more people (old and new) see it and have the opportunity to respond. I'm looking forward to a great summer! I'm taking out my 987S (first full summer with it) - for some sun time.

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    Guerneys is a resort in Montauk. It's been there for many years. I don't thing a PCA event was ever held there. Just sitting in the parking lot watching what goes in and out is worth the price of admission. Every exotic you can think of is there on weekends. Website is www.gurneys-inn.com. Check it out!

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    Any dates set in stone so far for the Guerney's trip? I usually stay at the Panoramic View when I am out in Montauk...

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    Usually, you need reservations to be made by Feb. It is on the pricey side and perhaps a Long Island member can assist us with lodging, although rooms are scarce that time of year. I think a great meeting place would be Gosmans Dock, right at the tip of Montauk Point.(www.gosmans.com)Hugh parking lot, great food for either lunches or dinner and winding roads from the Point to the Hamptons. Since this post is new, lets see what kind of response it brings and we'll go from there.

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    We've stayed there before and a good choice. Let's give this post a few days. You can send me a PM if you want and we'll communicate more directly.

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    We are out in Montauk most weekends over the summer as we keep our sailboat there in July and August and stay onboard. In prior years we stayed at the Panoramic, which is very nice or at the surf club, which is also nice but usually crowded with families. Would be lots of fun to have a get together out there.

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    That sounds great! I may be up for that as well!

    Delivery of my C2S Coupe in late April or May.

    I used to drive to "the end" every now and then years ago and I'm due to return someday.

    Regards,
    Deanski

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    Great response so far -- the drive out to Montauk in my 986 with the top down when I was a senior in HS was an experience that I'll never forget and is one that has kept me a genuine Porschephile. (They get you when you're young!) It's a great drive as long as the cops don't start PMS'ing on the LIE.

    I love the response so far, let's keep it coming!

    Sign me up.

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    sign me up too!

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    great idea just in time for my June delivery of C2S

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    What a great idea! I may be up for that as well! It's been ages since I've been in that area. Any idea what the time frame your thinking of? During 'the season' weekend traffic to the Hamptons is not nice....

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    Well, I don't think a Friday night trip out there is a good idea (you're right 1st 997) so as we get closer to Memorial Day, we'll try and think of a good date for everyone. We could do one in mid June, in July as long as its not 4th of July, and August too -- it really depends on what works best for everyone. Once I get a better idea of who's in, I'll start up a poll and see what date is most convenient.

    I knew you new cab owners would love this idea

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    Well, I'm out there every weekend so I am down. I've had the car 9 months and have been jonesing to go on an outing and do a group drive.

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    Mid June sounds pretty good and I agree to stay away from Holiday weekends. Sounds like we're getting somewhere!

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    Count me in!

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    I'm expecting delivery of my Cab in April and moving to CT in June/July and would love to join you for the ride and dinner or whatever

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    Count me in! I'll be in CT/NY this summer

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    About time we got some more 987 drivers in!

    Re: New York City Metro - Summer 2006 Gathering

    997 S Cab - can you set it up so you can receive private messages? Trying to send you some information on the summer drive.

    I wish i can but it will be one hell of a drive! How far is it from Atlanta to NY?? Or maybe i should ship my car over there and ship it back after we are done?;q Or maybe you guys should drive half way down and I will drive half way up to meet up with you guys I think that way, this might not only be limited to the new yorker
