WOOHOO! All set(again)!

We're going meet at Walmart in Watkins Glen on Saturday morning (July 13th) at 7:30am. We'll hang out for a little bit, and if anyone wants to go into town (or Walmart) for food and meet us a little later in the parking lot (8:00am), that'll be fine too. By 8:30am, we'll be leaving Walmart to go to the track.
SATURDAY MORNING MEETING:
Here's the map from Walmart to Watkins Glen Raceway, via Google Maps. We can meet in Watkins Glen (the town) right on the lake, less than 15 minutes from the Watkins Glen International track. The Walmart will have a big enough parking lot so that we don't crowd some business unexpectedly.
So, meet at Walmart in Watkins Glen, and then drive over to the track for our laps!
AT THE TRACK:
The laps will likely begin at 9:00am on Saturday, so we'd like to get there as close to 8:30 as possible.
We will be going behind the grandstand to Grand Prix Road, towards Gate 2.
There is a crossover gate where you cross the race track.
We will sign waivers that say if we wreck it's on us.
We do our laps around the track.
Then, escorted by Pace Car, we will be led to our parking place.
SATURDAY EVENING COOKOUT:
Saturday, around 6:00 or 7:00 PM, we had planned a cookout for those who are staying in Watkins Glen State Park - but anyone is welcome to join! (Visitors just may have to park in a visitor lot and walk a little, due to the cars-per-campsite rule.) I am in Cabin 123C, and we had originally just planned to all meet there, but are also discussing moving to a pavilion. Please let me know if you're coming in the original thread, and please also let us know if you can bring anything and where you'd like to eat in the second thread.
SUNDAY MORNING BREAKFAST:
9:00AM on Sunday, for anyone that wants to stay, we will be going to Savard's Restaurant at 601 North Franklin Street, Watkins Glen, NY. We may have to get creative with parking, but I'm sure we can do it. It's not like we take up that much space.
Sunday afternoon, after breakfast, I guess we'll be breaking up for the drive home. We can say our goodbyes, laugh, cry, do donuts in the parking lot, etc. I would suggest anyone with a good drive keeps Walmart in mind, which is minutes away. Large stores aren't necessarily plentiful once you get into the Adirondacks.
