Caravan to Monterey Historics 

Date:     Saturday August 15, 2009

Time:     7:00 am - 5:00 pm


Starting Location: Full of Beans Coffee Shop, 113 Esplanade, Aptos, CA 95003


Please plan to arrive at or before 7AM as we will need to leave around 7:15AM to get to Laguna Seca early enough so as not to park out in the weeds. 


Here's a link to a google map with directions:




For those who might not be able to meet for the caravan but would still like to park with the group we'll be stopping at the parking lot at WebLOC on the way.  We should arrive at WebLOC at around 8:00AM.  Those planning to meet up with the caravan there please let me know so that we will not leave you behind.  Thanks George Sidman for offering the convenient parking location.


I suppose we should talk about getting together some time during the day ... after the Porsche Parade Laps, say 1:15PM.  If we do park close to the track we can meet at the "corral" ... otherwise we can meet at the base of the Bridgestone bridge on the paddock side.  Here again, I'm just tossing something out for discussion.  If anyone has any details on other possible meeting place and time, please pass them along!  This will be a good opportunity for pictures.
