Yeah Fountain Hills is pretty much northeast scottsdale. It should be a blast though. To get to fountain hills you just take the beeline (sr87) north and make a left on shea. Go down a couple blocks to the target and go left.

Thanks for posting the info Speedster. We live in Surprise and would certainly go along, but dag nabbit, both my wife and I work Saturdays. We have every Sunday and Monday off.

We make that trip once a month or so ourselves, though. It's a nice ride through the hills and twisties. One of the nicer runs in the state, if you ask me.

Another great ride is to Globe, then Roosevelt Reservoir and on to Payson. Or back to Phoenix, whichever. We have half a dozen favorites, around the state, and my wife and I usually do one a week or so ourselves. We're not typical "club type" socialites, so we haven't had much contact with other Vette owners other than here and in passing on the road. :z: We keep missing out on events because everything starts on Saturday and we both work Saturday. :cry:

Sounds like a good time though. I hope you all enjoy. :cheers:

Glenn,
You are looking at 10 to 11 hrs driving time :eek:o: :eek:o:
Wait till it cools down a little and I'll find something local (Phoenix) with overnight!! Then you may want to come and meet these people!!
The A.C.E. group has gotten together with the Tucson guys for a 'halfway' get together also!!

Lookin' forward to meeting you 'Sarg' :thumb: :thumb:

11 hours? How so? I mean, 3 up. 3 back. 5 hour day cruise? Hmmm....As fo rthe GR8 GRL, nope...Sorry, no relations, BUT it would have been a perfect reason to ask her to stop and talk.....I am so tired tonight! Sarge got 14 days in today. The military can bring some very long work days.....Time for a cold one..... :guiness: What sup with the Phoenix/Tucson connection? I mean, I would like or prefer a weekend event. maybe drive up Friday, and crash out for Saturdays meet. A day trip, lunch and evening together with the family...and overnight again for maybe Sunday. I am easily impressed so no need for Westin La Palomas hotels or anything. Just want to have fun. We did a Tombstone run with a group from tucson and had well into 50 cars? It was nice little run for lunch and get together. Watched a shoot out re-enactment while eating lunch and then did some shopping. Maybe two or three hour sin Tombstone, but the drive was nice.....

All Tucson and Phoenix enthusiasts, lets get a plan for Labor Day weekend! I misse dout and I am sur eother stoo an dby the looks of the PICS, I don't want to miss out gain. It looks like alot of fun. But I think an all day event would be best. Possibly meet up at 9 am? I am open for suggestions as I never assembled one of these events. GREAT PICS! Anyone got some videos? :-?

I had the same idea. I've been looking for a location off of I10
for a meeting place. I went to a car show this weekend at the Desert Diamond Casino and thought that it could be a good place, but it might be a little far for our Phoenix friends.
I'm also looking to see how many people would be interested.
Lets make this happen! PM me if you have any ideas.

PS Like the pictures!

I think we hi-jacked a thread even though it's dead!!
Here is part of a PM I sent to Glenn!!

I don't know what is going on in the Tucson area, but it's Corvette Sat at the Pavillions in Scottsdale!!
If you want to meet die hard Corvette people in the valley, this is the place!! They can probably hook you up with Tucson groups also!!
I don't usually go to this but since we are going to do our lunch get together in the same mall, I'll attend!!

Ken, thanks for the link. I was hoping we could get something going for the region. My club here in Tucson is going through some internal problems, so they're not much help. I might try the other club here in town.

Here's a link to the race between me and a modded 04 cobra. My tune isn't finished yet but I am putting down 470hp and 460ftlbs. He is around 525 at the wheels. I should of dropped it into third but decided to go from fourth. Bad move on my part. The supra video will be up soon. The smoke you see is from him blowing his vaccum line. I think I can get him on the starting line and on the top end but damn he had a lot of power from that roll. :cheers:
