Tahoe Run 2009

Hello Everyone,

It is that time of year again for the 2009 Tahoe Run. We will be heading out on August 29th and doing the extended loop around the lake. For many of you who have attend this run in the past we have added a new section to the drive. If you have been waiting to go on a day drive then this is your drive.

We will be meeting at:

The Nimbus Winery
12401 Folsom Blvd, Rancho Cordova CA
Depart at 9:00am on the dot

PLAN ON BEING GONE ALL DAY. You are welcome to attend part of the drive or meeting points but the drive will last most of the day.

Lunch will be in Tahoe at the Lake Forest Buffet at Harrish Tahoe. Not the best food in the world but a great view and is able to seat a large group.

Maps will be provided on the day of the event for all of those who are attending the drive.

Check list.

1. Fill up prior to departure. (there is a chevron right off HW 50 and Hazel)
2. Two way radio if possible (helps the leads know what is going on)
3. Top off fluids
4. Check tire pressure
5. Clean air filter

If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask.

Thumbs up Great Day - Great Fun - Great People

What a great time!

At 9am this morning a large group of 30+ European cars including M3s, P-Cars, a Lotus, a Ferrari, and a classic 1966 Volvo gathered for what would be a fabulously fun day of driving.

On our way to, around, and back from Tahoe we got in some nice stretches of very "spirited" driving while enjoying a beautiful weather, scenery, and good company. Lunch at Harrah's offered a chance to get to know a great group of folks who shared enthusiasm for cars, driving, friendship, and love of a good time.

Many thanks to Adam and others at EuroSunday for organizing and coordinating this event!

If you enjoy driving some of the best back roads around here, and enjoy meeting like-minded fun people, I heartily encourage you to join us for the next event! My wife and I had a blast!

Here are a few photos from today's run. The "Call 911" which would have been just hilarious if we'd got the 911 in the shot...
Note: In some shots it looks like we're driving in England--those were taken via the side mirror.

I'll post a link once we upload the rest of the photos to Flickr.

Hello everyone.
I have posted the images from my 2009 Tahoe Run. Everyone that attended the drive had a great time as a fun group of car enthusiasts. The final group ended up with 31 cars total for the drive up and around Lake Tahoe. The weather was a little warmer than usual but the roads were perfect and the scenery was breath taking. I hope next year we can have an even bigger group for the drive there.

Keep an eye open for a possible second Tahoe run this year. A lot of people missed the drive that wanted to attend.

Other events I am planning for everyone.

Napa run and photoshoot

HW 1 Marathon drive (only the brave need apply)

Stanford to Santa Cruz (classic old school run from 2002 on)

If you want to find out when these drives are without checking the forms, PM me your email and I will add you to my drivers email list.
