Great, will see you there at Tim Hortons for coffee!

Below are a couple routes we plan to take. Unfortunately, we will limit some of the back roads thru NY Friday due to time constraints, sorry guys. 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:

My Wife and I will be at the Glen, but won't be in the convoy. Which sucks, because I live about ten minutes away from that Timmies in London We'll probably convoy home, though.

My Father-in-law lives in Rochester, so we're going a few days early to visit.

My Dad (who came with me last year) will likely be coming too, and maybe have his Fiero. It depends on whether guy blocking him in storage answers his phone.

Was lots of fun!

Videos: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 (Bad sound on the last one).

As the cameras are inside the car, you get the added benefit of me pretending to know what I'm talking about when my wife asked track questions

I was there, but passed on going on the track. I was taking photos of the cars as they passed under the archway near the pit road. It was a great weekend for the event.

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!

Kevin

What route are you taking?

If you're cutting through Ontario again, it looks like you'll be coming through London, ON at about 11-12? If so, I'll convoy down with you.

If you're going through Ohio, I'll just meet you there.

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.
