  • Fall 2007 AR Boston Mountains Tour (Fall 07BMT), Saturday, October 27th

    Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 27th!

    Jerome and I are planning the second ever all-day S2000 tour through the Boston Mountains over in Arkansas. Weather permitting, this will happen on Saturday, October 27th.

    We had originally intended to change the route significantly from the previous tour back in March, however due to time constraints, the route will be similar, but not exactly the same. So... the tentative plan is to start in Rogers, AR at 9:00 a.m. At the beginning of the tour, each driver (and co-driver) will be given a numbered ticket and a detailed morning and afternoon route which includes a stop for lunch in between. The route has been selected to travel over some of Arkansas' best S roads! From Rogers, we'll head eastward making a big loop through the Boston Mountains and end up in Wiederkehr Village, AR and draw tickets to give away a few very nice gifts.

    We'd like to get an idea of how many of you plan on attending so we can make reservations for lunch and dinner. So, please post your thoughts/interest here!

    Important! In order to arrive at our lunch stop on time, we need to leave our starting point at 9am. Therefore, please arrive no later than 8:30 with a full fuel tank. We will start/meet at Starbucks' parking lot (MAP) which is just across the street from the McDonald's where we met last spring.

      Julie, Thanks for posting the three pre-drive pics! The weatherman says that we will have a clear sky and daytime high temps in the upper 60's for our Saturday, 27 October '07, Fall Boston Mountains Tour. There should be good fall color on the trees this Saturday. We have some really nice Honda and S2000 type gifts to raffle off at the supper following the Tour. I know participants will have a great time, and we hope you can make this Tour.

            Here are some pics from the Boston Mountains Tour that we did this past weekend... The pictures are not the best.. its very hard for your passenger to take smooth pics when youre flying down 2 lane roads / jerking your car around + stiff coilovers.. and the bug guts where freaking out the auto focus.. but she did what she could

            Anyway it was a GREAT turnout as always. The roads are AMAZINGLY fun. I didnt get any pics of all the cars together, but we had about 16? cars out there. I mainly got pics of the road / scenery Enjoy:
