9/11 Ride for Pride, Saturday, September 10, 2011 @ 4PM

Post by ndnboy on Wed Aug 17, 2011 8:31 am

From the FB invite:

9/11 Ride for Pride

Location See Below

More Info For those unfamiliar with this cruise, it's purpose is to remember For all who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. It also holds the purpose of expressing our support and gratitude to all the men and women of this nation's armed forces, who right now are ensuring that we have the right, and the freedom, to conduct this event.

This event was conceived in 2002, by D. Charleton (Terminator X), and with the assistance of M. Gonza...les (Gonzo) and C. Pryce. The first Ride for Pride (RFP) had about 10 vehicles in attendance. This event has grown with each year that passes. The 2008 RFP had over 90 vehicles in attendance, including members from F-Body Hideout, Eastern F-Body Association, LS1Tech, LS1.com, LS1GTO, CCGTO, SRT Forums, and others.

The following is the video from the 2006 5th Annual Ride for Pride, as done by Joe Goss (Wreck):
http://www.fquick.com/videos/2006_9/11_Ride_for_Pride/8593


The staging area, route, and departure time have all changed for this year. Traffic and construction have become too much of a hazard to journey all the way around the Beltway. Please make sure you read all the information and are up to date.


When: Saturday, September 10, 2011.

Time: RFP will depart at 4:00PM. Please make sure you are on time, and have fuel, stragglers will have to catch up. Some of us will arrive around 2PM, to detail cars or catch up with those we have not seen in awhile, etc.

Staging area: The Horner Road Park & Ride (Prince William County) Intersection of I-95 and Prince William County Parkway

Directions: I-95 North... Take Exit 158. Head west on the Prince William County Parkway.


Duration/Distance: RFP will travel about 20 miles, and last 30 to 45 minutes, depending on traffic. Please make sure you have enough fuel to complete the cruise.

Route: We will leave the commuter lot to get on the Restricted Lanes(aka HOV lanes). We will travel North and exit onto Route 27, and then turn right to get into the Pentagon North Parking area. The cruise will end at that point.

Conduct: No burnouts, No donuts, No racing, we are not at the track. BE RESPONSIBLE.

Vehicles allowed: F-Body V6/V8, Mustang/Cobra V6/V8, Corvette, Viper, GTO new and old, GN/GNX/Grand National, Impala SS new/old, old-school/classic muscle car/hotrod, GM/Ford/Chrysler nameplates, stuff like that. Also consider this statement by D. Charleton from a few years ago ... "It's not like if you show up you'll be turned away."

Please be sure to bring/have an American flag to put on your car, or something to show support for our servicemen/women.


This year's cruise again has a lot to live up to. Please help me make this 'a cruise to remember'. Let us come together and show that we remember what happened on that awful day; and that we support our servicemen/women.

We can either do before or after if there is interest. Heck, even both before and after. If it's after you'll have to drive back here from DC which is only about 20min. You guys decide

I thought I'd make it but leaving at 4pm is retarded when traveling around DC, even on the weekend. I apparently have a wedding to attend in the Dena at 6pm so this is very sadly a no go for me.
Sorry

If it is operational? New mods or broke it driving it hard at the track?

It turned out to be a beautiful day... (the rain stayed to the north as we found out watching the lightning show on the way home Saturday night ). The folks running the gig did a fine job handleing everything....but with all that was happening at the Pentegon this weekend there was a real problem as to where to park 50 cars. This was resolved soon as the operator of the parking garage at the mall across the street let us use the upper level at a discount price. Honey Bunny and i stayed for a few hours and visited the new memorial and walked around for awhile and it cost all of $2. Hats off to the crew that ran things. ps. we Mustangs, which included a wicked silver and black fox and a rare 72 conv. upheld our end by having the most builder participants...12 in all i believe.
