I like the idea of meeting in the Middle. A good amount of Marauders out here in San Francisco. Houston also has a large group.

Due to a misunderstanding between the myself and management my proposal for this year was not accepted. That being said this was my proposal:

I have been to many of the events and feel this location meets many of the requirements while offering something different.

WATKINS GLEN NEW YORK:

I tried reaching out to the BMW club to run the course on their track day but they were not responsive. Even if a track event cannot be managed there is always the option to drive the course as a guest in one of the track cars at 55mph. Not as good as the Marauderville Daytona or Indy but very similar. Here are the details on the guest driving event...

http://www.theglen.com/Guest-Info/Drive-The-Glen.aspx

There is a track which seems reasonable for our club and is only 1.5 hours from Watkins Glen which means many of the other events listed below would also apply as day trips.

http://www.empiredragway.com/track-rental.html

In addition to the raceway the Watkins Glen state park is very impressive and very close.

https://parks.ny.gov/parks/142/

Watkins Glen is at the bottom of Lake Senneca which is surrounded by wineries.

https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C...6!2i484!4f13.1

As well as breweries.

https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C....0.LtPOth0VAhM

Activities near Watkins Glen include:

This is mainly a library but does have a few cars on display. It would be 1-2 hour stop max.
http://www.racingarchives.org/

https://www.google.com/maps/uv?hl=en...1-9lkWYsD0ERv3


The Corning Museum of glass is very good and very well known as enjoyable by almost all visitors an would consume most of an entire day in the itenerary.

https://www.cmog.org/

Also near Corning is a glider museum:
https://www.soaringmuseum.org/

I visited Letchworth State Park which is 1.5 hours from Watkins Glen and is the most visited state park in the United States and after visiting I know why. Excellent easy place to visit for an afternoon.

https://parks.ny.gov/parks/79/details.aspx

A half hour from Watkins Glen is the Curtis Museum:
http://www.glennhcurtissmuseum.org/

An hour from Watkins Glen is a Casino:

https://www.tiogadowns.com/

And we also have a boat cruise option.

https://www.senecaharborstation.com/

As you can see their are many options.

I would be willing to do some of the work but would need some on-site assistance with hotel/track rental etc.

Based on the feedback I still think their is some interest in continuing this event which now will have to be a 2019 event. I agree with many that if we say where they will come. If there is enough planning time a really good event will occur. Their are also enough options above that could be voted on to decide on to make this a group effort rather than a small committee selecting some of the options.

I do not want to see this event end and that is why I put the time in to put this together.

Does this plan have enough support to make a 2019 proposal for MVXV? Who in the area could support some of the groundwork?

So let me get this straight. You took the time to line out the details of this event and the admin declined it?

Not declined by admin. Admin mis-understood the communication of the information. I am not going to place blame on the moderators but I will say the process is more confusing than it should be.

Having been to many of the attractions that you listed, as well as the Finger Lakes Wine Festival which is held at Watkins Glen....I would agree that it is a great locale for a meet!

Anyone else up for a possible weekend trip to the area to help scope out the area? Only 200 miles due north of Carlisle. It does have possibilities!

Tim, it doesn't have to be an "official Marauderville" , just a group of friends getting together for a fun weekend, many meet ups / events have happened just because car... Sometimes Marauderville gets to be too big, as in a lot of work. A scaled down version like the Autumn Brewery Tours, The meet up at Capt Dan's CrabHouse, Carlisle PA All Ford National, the New Hampshire meets, etc works out just as well, with less logistics issues and costs. We don't need t shirts, goodie bags, raffles, etc. Yes, it's a nice touch, but a lot of work to put together.

Any other thoughts?

Really want there to be a MVXV. Meetups are easier but the neat thing about Louisville and MV is the volume of cars that show up. Nothing is cooler than 50+ in one location.

I love your idea, and it was one of my ideas to have a traveling Marauderville in the exact same area. The only thing I would add in Corning, New York is Wings of Eagles Discovery Center.

Good location and good event options with planes, engines and a neat NOAA exhibit. http://www.wingsofeagles.com/

Yes, Ken and Tim, we could do a weekend sometime to that area to scope out possibilities. Tim, thank you for the time you put in to look into activities for another Marauderville.
