Mid-Atlantic Smarts Club?

Traditionally - IIRC - the mid-atlantic states are New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. It might include Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and District of Columbus. One could include Connecticut. Wikipedia Mid-Atlantic. Perhaps we could have a Mid-Atlantic Smart Club (M.A.S.C.)? It could be more inclusive that one that is just one state.

I think more properly the "Mid-Atlantic" is the coastal areas east of the Appalachians (including WDC and the Chesapeake) from the Delaware River to the Cape Fear River and the SC border. Above that, Northeast; below that, Southeast.

It's very subjective, but I've always thought of DE, MD, VA, DC, WV as mid-Atlantic. PA and above to me has always been the northeast while NC and below were southeast.

But, I'd be interested in group get togethers if they get close to my part of WV. The eastern panhandle of WV (Martinsburg, etc.) is still too far to drive (5+ hours) unless it's a major event.

I agree that it is very subjective. I am trying to get some input. Your replies are appeciated.

The Mid-Atlantic states, also called middle Atlantic states or simply the mid Atlantic, form a region of the United States generally located between New England and the South. Its exact definition differs upon source, but the region often includes Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., and sometimes Virginia and West Virginia.

(Per Wikipedia- with the appropriate grain-of-salt)

I hope this helps. Our smartCARolinas group is still strong, even though we are only 2 states we have 92 members as of today; of course not all are in our states. With our group sponsoring the Dragon event our membership went up. Sounds like a great plan.

smart event in the Poconos?

A Smart event in the Poconos sounds like a good idea.

Perhaps we could tap into their experience and get information on where to stay and when the best time to meet?

May not be that much help... Camp Jeep '05 took over a ski resort area during August. It's a huge event and they needed the space. A lot of Jeepers camped in the area or stayed in local cabins. By the time I registered, I had to stay in Wilkes-Barre about 30 minutes away and drive over for the events.

Dang, if you are in Wilkes-Barre, be the first smart to do the Giants Despair hillclimb. Just don't tip-over at the "Devil's Elbow," as some have done.
