Thoughts on Holding the SPEC510 MEET at the Mitty Next Year?

Postby qwik510 » 07 May 2009 12:22

With all this talk about the BRE Datsuns being the Marque for the Mitty next year, I have been thinking about maybe, I repeat Maybe, holding the 14th Annual East Coast Datsun 510 Meet (SPEC510) at the Mitty next year. Before you get all excited or get your panties in a bunch, this is just in the thought process right now. It is not a final decision.

I would need a tremendous amount of help to pull this off. There is no way I could coordinate all this witout some real help from others.

I know that many of the northern 510 guys might not want to make a trip that far, but there are so many 510 guys in the south that have never come up for the SPEC510 MEET so this would give them a chance to meet the rest of us too.

So I want to hear your thoughts, opinions and concerns about this. We have a whole year to plan it.

Let me know what you think.
Enjoy The Ride!

I'm in either way. I know what you're thinking after I bailed this year, but I just want to be sure that we don't have to decide which one to choose. I''m certaily going to the Mitty, since it's only 3 hours away. If you decide to have the anual gathering there, great, it'll be a heck of a showing. If you decide to have it at S.P., that's fine too, I'll make the drive again. I guess if you want a preference, then I'd choose to have everybody meet at the Mitty, that way I won't have to schedule TWO weekends away.
Yeah, let's all go to the Mitty!!!

I knew you would want the Mitty, Brad. 3 Hours? You must drive slow :P It shows 180 miles from you to the mitty. It is 600 miles from me. :evil:

Still in the thought stages.
Enjoy The Ride!

From where I live it's 223 miles, Google Maps says 3hr45min. Maybe I can't quite get there in 3 hrs, but...

Thanks for considering this, I'm sure there are others besides just me that will be happy to help with the admin. stuff.

I am 50/50. I talked with my dad and he is considering renting a truck and double car trailer so we can take my 510 and one of the S30's. I know.... He is crazy.

Pete Brock will be there so that's enough for me to swing towards wanting it at Mitty :)

We can do it in 2 days. Go down to NC (6 hour drive) and stay the night with local 510 guys and then move on to the Mitty (4 hour Drive) for the meet. Pete Brock is scheduled to be there with the BRE 510 and the BRE 240Z.

I am liking this idea more and more.
Enjoy The Ride!

Not sure I get a vote since I've never been to SP, but hell yeah! I'm ready to return to the Mitty. Had a blast in '06. Road Atlanta is awesome! I'd be flying in from L.A. so I might be in a rental car, but I'll slap my magnetic BRE sticker on that puppy and I'll be set. 8)

My car would be running by then, and I think I could trust it to drive that far :D. It couldn't be more than 2 1/2 hrs. from me, it's got my vote!

My wife and I drove clear across the country to the Mitty this year and were surprised that there were not many 510s at RA. Then we find out that next year BRE will be one of the features of the weekend and were even more discouraged. If the SPEC event is held at RA next year we decided that we would make the trip again because we enjoyed it so much.
I am offering a challenge to those of you east of St Louis, quit complaining about the distance to RA. If I can make it two years in a row from Oregon you can as well. Make your plans to go now.
I will meet you on the grass at turn 9.
