Exclamation May GTG 2009

Alright lets get rolling on the where and when to GTG in May


I propose that we block-out Sunday May 10th, due to the lethal coincidence with Mother's Day

I suspect that Memorial Day weekend (23, 24, & 25) will also pre-commit many of us to family reunion sort of obligations

That leaves us with:
  • Saturday 2nd
  • Sunday 3rd
  • Saturday 9th (I anticipate working that day)
  • Saturday 16th
  • Sunday 17
  • Saturday 30th

My vote is for something later in the month.

There's a guy from MA (Megawatt00 actually) who said he'd come down to CT for the weekend of the 9th and 10th so we can work on trucks. Unfortunately I forgot the 10th is Mother's Day (aka: Made up holiday)

So if we go for the 9th or 10th I'm out.

So what does everyone suggest we do for the May GTG? I'm out of ideas.

Well, in the past we had considered the following:

Hammonasset state park in the Spring.
DEP: Hammonasset Beach State Park

POWERSTROKER07 (said in Feb., 09) in a couple months there is a car show in derby..at heavenly doughnuts on r34
Bill, I need a definitive web-link on this

George aka Can Do suggested the Haul of Fame truck museum in Plainfield,CT.
American Truck Historical Society
133 Packer Road, Canterbury, CT 06331, (860) 546-6733
Hours: Monday-Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Ray aka rocdril mentioned the Central Connecticut Four Wheelers May race @ Southwick (MA) is Sunday the 17th
http://www.cc4w.org/
Also there are the Munson (MA) Hill Climbs Sunday May 24th
Monson Hill Climbs (Truck)
2007 AMA Hillclimb National Championships (August - Motorcycle)
Ray I need definitive Munson web-link on what you were thinking of, I came upon two which I posted above

I've forgotten who mentioned the Peabody Museum at Yale.
Welcome to the Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale University

I'm fine with any of them but the Peabody Museum.

That place puts me to sleep. If you guys want to go then have fun, but I'll be sitting that one out. (no offense intended to the person that suggested it)

I'd say hold off on the other truck museum for a while.

That's just my opinion though.

I second that. I've been here once before and they are really fun. My wife would probably come as she liked it as well.

I'm game for the Monson Hill Climbs, but their website (below) only has 2008 dates.

Monson Hill Climbs (Truck)

Ray, can be King-of-the-Hill and get back to us with a confirmed date.

For those who have yet to map it, Monson, MA is about halfway between Springfield and Auburn, and south of the Mass Pike.

Hopefully someone will nail down its address.

I followed a link off the Monson Hill Climbs (Truck) to Quaboag Riders Motorcycle Club - Schedule which shows May 24, 2009 Season Opening 4 x 4 Drags and Hill Climb.

Still have yet to find their street address.
