FANTASTIC.  :)

I hope some local Riviera owners make it. Good chance I'll be working near there, then. On my radar!

Thanks JZ

Wow!  Something close to New England.  That'd be a nice ride, assuming my Riv is road worthy.

Yippee!  I was jealous when they featured the Toronado & El Dorado at the 2016 event.  It's on my calendar!  Now I need to start knocking-off the items on my Goldie 'to-do' list... ;)

 

Oh, and I can't wait to see JZ's '66 in-person!

Jason, Should we possibly see about having this post "pinned" to the top?

 

Keep it on everyone's radar, and so those that do apply or are accepted can add to it?

We could ask Mr Earl to pin this one in place of the dues reminder thread come Jan 1 when we will no longer need the dues thread pinned. I know he doesn't like to have too many threads pinned at any given time.

Lake George in the summertime is heaven on earth. It's called the "Queen of the American Lakes" for a reason. That said, Lake George Village can be a little crowded and sort of honky tonk during the high season. Its all good clean fun though. If you go, make sure you do two things:

 

1. Take a ride on one of the Lake George Steamboats ( MinnieHaHa for a short ride, Mohican for a real tour of the 26 mile lake or Lac du San Sacrament in the evening) 

2. Take a drive out of Lake George on the Beach Road and turn left and follow 9L. It's a scenic, very twisty road through wooded Adirondack country. Put your windows down and enjoy.
