The 48hrs of Tristate Committee is happy to announce the 12th Annual Charity Drive January 17-20, 2013. We will be organizing this trip once again and this year we are heading North again to get back to some snow covered roads. Some background on The 48hrs... The trip was originally organized as a way for Subaru owners to get out and see the Tri-state area and meet other Subaru owners who share a passion for these cars. What better way than to have a group drive over a weekend in January? Since it's inception it has grown from 5 cars and 48hrs to 50+ cars and 3 days. This is the largest Subaru Group drive over multiple days, and you will meet a lot of great Subaru owners and bond over meals and miles! Not only is the trip a fun way to spend a weekend, we also are doing this to raise money for The American Cancer Society. All registrations and donations go directly to ACS and are a Tax Deduction. Additionally for every $10 you donate, you will get a raffle ticket for our door prizes donated by Subaru Vendors. The past few years we gave away about $10,000 in prizes each year thanks to the supporters of the event.
Details and registration can be found at http://48hrs.info

This is not a rally or any kind of performance driving, it is a laid back group drive where no one is left behind and we all proceed together on our adventure. We welcome all kinds of Subarus and Non-Subarus on the drive. Plenty of folks have come with non-performance oriented cars, so don't be scared off thinking this is all WRXs and STis.
Any questions feel free to post up or e-mail us directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will keep this thread updated as the details fall into place for this years trip!
