mini cruise anyone?

i cant find where we have discussed this before but i dont want it to go away . we can and will do this in two different ways if everyone who wishes to join agrees as the title fits both. one mini cruise to me would be a 30 or 40 mile lap over some of my ( or your ) favorite back roads allowing local natives to ooh and awe over our stuff. i love the adrendilan rush . start it early enough in the evening so it can culminate at one of the local cruise ins.( mine would end at cafe 302 or something in hazel green if we ever start one) some one elses may end at hardees gurley or steak and shake decatur or new hope. to me the drive is the best part . the other mini cruise idea already happens to a degree i just havent taken part yet. get a group together and head to a show sort of out of the area such as the ( all ford show in manchester tenn or the pulaski show which both are excellant events

This happens informally on the way to a lot of events. A group of people will all gather somewhere beforehand and cruise together to an event, either local or out of the area.

I think it would be nice to have almost a mini event before the event and then all roll in together to the main event.

Is there interest in a mini tour 50-75 miles. One day event. Starting 1-2 pm and ending at a specific and agreed on cruise site. Multiple photo op sites (2-3), maybe some landmarks in the back ground for the perfect photo to blow up and frame. Some main street time and some open back road time. Pehaps we can run a pre season event and work the bugs out for a season ending blow out! (not a tire blow out) If there is interest forward site or route ideas. I am willing to organize it if we want to have one. Registration and a disclaimer would be needed. I just wanted to say it before Samir did. lol.

As long as I have the free time, I'm down for a "mini-cruise" event. Photo op sites are a must. I'm usually free the 2nd and 4th weekends of the month.

I would try and schedule it so it does not conflict with any major events or shows (early in season) and on a weekend that the most people could attend. Thanks for the feedback. Any suggestions for photo sites or routes??

How about a north alabama covered bridge cruise? Photo's at any of the Dams or falls. We've done similar things in our vette club.

New to the area but I am open to ideas. I want some great shots I can blow up and frame and some open road time. I will see what other responses come in and go from there. I will keep you posted.

Other ideas:

Jack Daniel's Distillery in Lynchberg trip.

Covered bridges of Alabama:
http://www.dalejtravis.com/cblist/cbal.htm

We could take a trip to Lookout Mountain:
http://www.lookoutmountain.com/

Or just a planned loop that would encompass about 1hr+ of drive time.

I almost forgot about this--January 7th, Vettes with Vets and Corvette Owners is going to be going to the Frosty Wheels Indoor Car Show up in TN. They plan to invite the Valley Vettes as well as the Rocket City Mustang Club, but anyone can come along. I've talked to some people in the North Alabama British Motoring Society and they're interested as well.

I'll be posting the details on my calendar soon, but I think this would be a nice little cruise up to Nashville and then to the show. What does everyone think?

I've tried to get Hooters to show something on their television system before, but they wouldn't do it.

Now if Barrett Jackson was on TV, like I think it will be sometime coming up, I could find out if they'd give us a section of the restaurant and set our tvs on it.
