For anyone joining at the Letchworth State Park, we will be entering the park at the Castile Entrance. After stopping by the falls to the south and the Mt. Morris Dam to the north, we will be exiting the park from the north at the intersection of Park Rd. / NY36 S.
Route from Peace Bridge, Buffalo, NY to Letchworth State Park:
I will be meeting you in Buffalo for lunch, and then cruising through Letchworth with you on Friday. And the meeting you again Saturday at the glen for bfast and the track. Just me friday, and my brother and I Sat. Seq, pm me if you want to drive down together on Saturday morning.
On behalf of the "Capitol City Fiero Club", we would like to thank all those who joined in on the fun at Watkins. What a great weekend for a spring cruise. With a couple good runs on the track Saturday and another even better run Sunday, everyone had a chance to take a couple thousand miles off their tires and put a smile on their face. Must admit, our group looked to be the one having the most fun at the track.
It was great to see old friends and meet new via Saturday nights dinner and campfire. With cars from London, Baltimore, Rochester, Windsor, Detroit, Eastern NY, Florida, and Jackson MI ( hope I didn't miss any) we sure had a diverse group of dedicated Fiero owners. Spirited driving and a love for anything Fiero sure appeared to be the common interest with this group. Hopefully all and more can make next years journey to "The Glen".
Small request: I can't post pictures very well yet, new to Mac. If you have photos of the weekend you care to share, please post them here.
Thanks everyone for a great "Run to the Glen". See you next year!
Working on the answer. I do believe those from MI will be passing thru London. Will try to get a time and place for you. We have a member who also lives Windsor area that often meets the group in London as well.
