  • Picnic 2017?

    Life has gotten really busy for me in the past year. I had completely forgotten about the picnic, and will not be able to commit to it this year due to too many other commitments and uncertainties. Unfortunate for me, as this has typically been a highlight event for me for each of the last five years. Sorry about that!

      Someone else could make the arrangements. It's just that Sean is unable. I'm too far away, at least that's my excuse.

        That does not sound good. Who passed away?

          Should we ask why the new engine?

            the old engine was supposed to be 220 HP. On the dyno, it was only 145 at the rear wheels. The new engine on the stand produced 252 Hp. However Raceline sent me the wrong bell housing. I am waiting for them to respond. Now I have 0hp while I wait. the old engine is out and on the garage floor, and the new engine/transmission will not fit.

              Are these Duratec engines?

                  Hmmm.... Let's organize a picnic. Is it too late to get the spot in Los Gatos?

                    Hi Sean - can relate to life getting busy. You've done great work getting the event to its current scale - maybe the crowd should source this year.

                    A quick scan shows Vasona Lake Park picnic sites all booked up for the foreseeable, so who's up for a blat plus either potluck picnic at some pretty spot (San Gregorio? Mt.Hamilton?) or destination dining (Duartes in Pescadero, Alice's on Skyline)? We could start at Vasona and I'm happy to coordinate a reservation for the midpoint if that's the choice. Out of towners - thinking of Larry and Goya, Doug if he can make it - can use my home base in Mountain View to park trailers or chase cars.

                    Here's some dates for starters (assume 10am - 2pm span):

                    Aug 5
                    Aug 12
                    Aug 19
                    Aug 26 (I can't do but might work for others.)

                    All those interested please indicate date, and if there's a quorum we'll next choose the blat route. Let's try to bootstrap a moveable feast Picnic for 2017!

                      Stevens Creek Park has a site available on the 26th (only date I checked). In theory I might be able to host a barbecue at my place, I'm surrounded by Se7en's worthy roads (West of Boulder Creek).

                        I would be "in" if we could pull it off, if one of the locals could arrange the site only I think the rest of us out of the area people could set a pot luck kind of thing. I am spending almost all my time in Atascadero, due to my wife's health, I have not been to our home in Pacific Grove since the last year "7 event"

                          I am game but it's usually faster to walk.

                            If August 12 works, that is the beginning of the Pre-Reunion at Mazda Raceway - Laguna Seca. This event is pretty small, without all of the crowds and drama of the Rolex Reunion the following weekend. It is a county park, but I think admission is $25 for that event. If there is any interest I can ask if we could occupy an area, like the Turn 5 camping area, for a picnic. We would likely have to bring our own tables and chairs, unless they would let us use some unoccupied camping sites.

                              Interesting idea. If you are willing to get more information on the possibilities that would be great.
