Greetings all central & northern Californians! We are having a gathering at exactly 12:00 noon on Sunday, August 17th! It will be in Oakland or Alameda (near the bay where it's not so hot) at a Home Depot or Wal-Mart parking lot, and an adjacent restaurant. I am bringing my slightly modified (for car shows) 2003 5-spd (85.7 lmp) all the way from the state of WA. We will figure and exact location soon; any suggestions? I would like to meet many of you, including Rodney. Everyone is welcome, and even the famous Insight expert Daniel Curran may show up. I sure wish Rick Reece didn't live so far away..........Billy

Sounds like a great idea to me, and it takes Billy from Washington state to get a California gathering going! 8)

I should be able to make it, not familiar enough with the area to suggest a location though.

OK....Location has been chosen. After considering several sites, the Wal-Mart parking lot in San Leandro is the winner!! (1919 Davis St) It is just off the 880 freeway, just south of Oakland Airport, and only a few blocks from the Bay, so I am told it is relatively cool on hot days. Also there are 3 restaurants adjacent, so we can all go & eat while we swap stories, etc. Think about bringing a small folding chair so we can "tailgate" for a while as we look over the cars. Anyone in SoCal willing to drive north and join us? Be there or be square. Later, Billy.....

Sounds like quite a gathering. Is it worth contacting the 'local' newspaper for them to take a few pictures for an article?
Take any chance you get to educate people about the delights of the Insight. :)

yes.....I'm hoping to have someone from the Oakland, CA newspaper take some photos for a possible feature story. Many people are interested in learning more about the Insight; most of them have only seen one on the freeway, but never up close. Billy....

We hope to see ALL of you central & northern CA folks this Sun @ Noon. It will be great to see your vehicles, take some group photos, and meet lots of nice people! I have contacted the Oakland Tribune, SF Chronicle, and the San Jose Mercury News to see if they want to maybe do a write-up story. Hoping James from Reno, Braxus, Dazey, etc. can attend....Billy....

Has everyone seen a HCH yet? If not, I'll see if I can bring that instead of the little ol' Insight.

Thanks, Billy, for setting this up. I'll make my best effort to be there.

Braxus, MO, bring the Insight. It's an Insight gathering.

Thanks to Billy for a great get together! We had such a great showing of Insights, but I still think we should have swarmed the H2 in the parking lot!

Agreed. I am considering getting "NO HMMRS", "NO HUMMR", or some other derivative license plates. Also, "10K WATT" also seems kinda neat. However, this being California and with the huge number of people here, all the really cool license plates are taken. :(
