1. Have Fun
2. Be Safe
3. Don't be a douche
For those of you that have never attended one of these, this is not a race.
There are some areas that you will probably be able to open it up a bit but keep in mind that these are public roads. Also, some of the roads can be a bit challenging at high speeds even without traffic.
So - In addition to driving safely, its important to know your limits, as well as the limits of your car.
Everyone is welcome, regardless of your vehicle.
While this is
a NASIOC cruise and there will be mostly Subarus in attendance, we are a very welcoming group and do not discriminate (unless you bring a Hummer
- Walkies allow instant communication; call out road damage, animals, traffic, etc. They're also not dependent on cell towers for reception.

I have 5 group leaders now. I'll have the group assignments made by the 3rd. Thanks to everyone who offered to help!
I spoke with a manager @ Rudy's this morning and gave him the heads up due to the potentially large turnout this time. Since they dont take reservations, I will be showing up a little early (10:30 or so) to reserve some tables outside (or inside if weather sucks). If anyone wants to show up early to help, maybe direct traffic to form an impressive lineup in the parking lot, that would be greatly appreciated.
