Hi SF Bay Area Owners!
Last year I had thought of organizing a McLaren (and other exotics) drive/rally and post-drive get-together, but life got in the way and I ended up moving out of state (to Port Townsend, WA ... not many McLarens here!). But I still visit the Bay Area often, and so I am trying again.
Specifically, I'm thinking of Saturday June 22, beginning with a group drive (route TBD
) and ending at The Club at Westpoint, where I am a founding member (https://theclubatwestpoint.com
). They would host us for drinks and buffet-style food, and possibly some entertainment. Some overnight accommodation on yachts is available for those who would like to stay over. This is a great venue on the water in Redwood City, at SF Bay's newest marina. It offers reasonable privacy and the possibility of segregated parking. This should be a great social get-together and an opportunity for owners to meet each other and talk cars, etc. Those who wished could just attend the post-drive get-together.
Not to get into too many details at this point, but I'm looking for expressions of interest, to see if there would be enough potential participants to make this worthwhile. I'm also looking for a co-organizer who lives in the Bay Area, to help with setting this up, especially organizing the drive itself. I would focus on organizing the event at the Club.
We have a choice of having the Club event as a lunch or dinner meal, with the preceding drive in the morning/around mid-day, or in the afternoon. I'd been interested in hearing thoughts on the timing. My preference is for the afternoon drive / dinner event, but I'm open to suggestions.
I'll be attending the McLaren SF event at Sonoma on May 4th, which would be an opportunity to talk details with potential participants / co-organizers.
