Albany NY Meet

Where: Meet at Crossgates Mall and eat lunch there, then drive (20 min) to Saratoga racetrack for pictures, then to Thatcher State Park (another 20-30min) for a BBQ

When: Meet at Crossgates at 11:00AM, Sunday May 25th 2008

Who: ClubRSX.com mostly, but other locals and scattered other forums, definitely not a “Honda only” meet or anything like that, me and my co-organizer drive an Altima SER and a GMC truck, respectively, if that says anything

So, basically this is an all-around car enthusiast meet for anyone in the Northeastern US.

To estimate travel time, use the address “1 Crossgates Mall Road, Guilderland NY 12084”.

Here is a picture to show the meeting place in comparison to I-87 N+S and I-90 E+W:

We have a confirmed 30-40 cars from ClubRSX.com and locals, and we’d like to make this meet as large as possible.

We’ll be handing out directions from Saratoga to Thatcher Park when we all meet at Crossgates in case anyone gets separated from the group…

This is a pic of where we will take pictures in Saratoga, there are beautifully landscaped entrance gates, practice tracks, stables, etc.:

I will bring a friend with a great camera and I’ll post his pics on this thread on clubrsx: Albany NY meet; May 24th or 25th Memorial Day weekend... - Club RSX Message Board and you can PM me with your email or something and he can get the pics to you, but obviously bring your own camera if you have one…

My email address is [email protected], my name is Ryan and feel free to email me with any questions.

Also, I live 15 minutes from Thatcher Park so I can bring the meat and other not-easily-stored items, but if anyone wants to volunteer to bring soda or chips or anything else, please let me know ASAP. If you can’t bring anything, a small donation to my wallet ($5 is fine) would be GREATLY appreciated.

So please, bring your friends and let’s make this as big as possible!
