Watkins Glen 2014 Details

Smart Rally At The Glen 3
July 11th - July 13th, 2014


Please follow the Smart Rally At The Glen group on Facebook!

BUYING TICKETS:

Once Mike gets back to me with a good line of contact for our ticket requests, he wants folks to purchase tickets from him directly. I'll post that up when I get it - which will be soon. If you don't want to buy early from him, you can buy at the gate. I have no involvement in ticket purchasing.

We're going meet at Walmart in Watkins Glen on Saturday morning (July 12th) at 7:30am. We'll hang out for a little bit, and if anyone wants to go into town (or Walmart) for food and meet us a little later in the parking lot (8:00am), that'll be fine too. By 8:30am, we'll be leaving Walmart to go to the track.

Once again, Mike is waving the track fee, and we're just paying a set price for the Track + Wine Festival; once he passes along the info which I'll pass along to you.


SATURDAY MORNING MEETING:
Here's the map from Walmart to Watkins Glen Raceway, via Google Maps. We can meet in Watkins Glen (the town) right on the lake, less than 15 minutes from the Watkins Glen International track. The Walmart will have a big enough parking lot so that we don't crowd some business unexpectedly.

So, meet at Walmart in Watkins Glen, and then drive over to the track for our laps!


AT THE TRACK:
The laps will be at 9:00am on Saturday. (Just like last year.)

We will need to get there at 8:45, and (we should) go through Gate 2.
When we get in the gate, take a right, and go behind the grand stand.
There is a crossover gate where you cross the race track.
We will sign waivers that say if we wreck it's on us.
We do our laps around the track.
Then, escorted by Pace Car, we will be led to our parking place.

Saturday will be a free-for-all to enjoy the Wine Festival, go back in to town, do whatever you want, and chill.


SATURDAY EVENING COOKOUT:
Saturday, around 6:00 or 7:00 PM, we will plan a cookout for those who are staying in Watkins Glen State Park - but anyone is welcome to join! (Visitors just may have to park in a visitor lot and walk a little, due to the cars-per-campsite rule.) I am in Cabin 112C, so we could meet at my place or someone else's. I will be making a thread in the not-to-distant-future to RSVP for the cookout and will plan who's going to bring what.


SUNDAY MORNING BREAKFAST:
9:00AM on Sunday, for anyone that wants to stay, we will be going to Savard's Restaurant at 601 North Franklin Street, Watkins Glen, NY. We may have to get creative with parking, but I'm sure we can do it. It's not like we take up that much space. The restaurant has been packed in years past, so we'll plan as best we can.

Sunday afternoon, after breakfast, I guess we'll be breaking up for the drive home. We can say our goodbyes, laugh, cry, do donuts in the parking lot, etc. I would suggest anyone with a good drive keeps Walmart in mind, which is minutes away. Large stores aren't necessarily plentiful once you get into the Adirondacks.

Let me know if anyone has any further concerns or questions. I sure hope I addressed everything by now!

Year 3 is a go!

Count me in for this one - no conflicts with other smart events I'm aware of.

See you there everyone. Making a week long road trip out of it this year with a handful of stops following Watkins Glen. I'll probably be camping at the state park again. See you all there.
