Out of curiosity, has anyone heard anything recently about the West Irondequoit NY or Plattsburgh/Clinton County NY meets that have been proposed/discussed as possibilities for this spring?  Is there a chance that either of these meets might still happen in the spring (or some other time in 2022)?

Update: I’m looking at doing Lynchburg on June 11 and Cumberland on Columbus Day weekend.
I can make Columberland work. I think.

I'm definitely interested in both Lynchburg and Cumberland, but let's see where I'm living and what I'm doing when those happen.

On that note, expect a 2023 or 2024 meet from me wherever I end up. I have a feeling it'll be somewhere that hasn't had a meet in a while but is still accessible to people.

Right now I'm putting the Twin Cities meet as unlikely. I'll be honest about it. I just don't really want to do it right now.

Thanks for letting us know.  Your honesty is appreciated!  No problem... there's always plenty of time to host that meet in the future.

Given that Lynchberg is June 11, I don't expect to try for a Schenectady/Amsterdam meet in that month.  Once I find out when the Family Picnic is and whether my parents plan to go to the Thousand Islands or come over to visit me in the Capital District, I'll take a look at the calendar and see if it's possible to squeeze something in during the late July/early August timeframe.  It's sure filling up fast!

I've put Cumberland back on my radar since it's back to Columbus Day weekend.  Is that still planned for a two day meet, or back down to one?

Judging by the poll results with 2 days to go in the voting, October 22 is the likely date for the OKC meet.

There's a lot going on in October now, so I'll do Janesville in September or November.

Based on what I want to feature, the meet calendar, and my calendar, I've decided to have Schenectady-Amsterdam on August 6.

Hey, Laura... are you still planning on hosting Cumberland the weekend of October 8-9?

^ I am curious about the status of the Cumberland meet as well.  I'm at the point where I need to start firming up my plans for September/October a bit.

As we are inching closer to fall, I thought I should follow up on this thread and clean up our 2022 road-meet list a bit if I can.

Specifically, I'm wondering if any of these potential meets on the list might still be happening this year:
  • Cumberland MD - October 8?
  • Shawangunk NY?
  • Nice Bridge/U.S. 301 (Dahlgren VA) mini-meet?

I'll keep them on the list if there's a chance that they'll take place, but I'd prefer to remove them now if we already know that none of them are happening this year.  Thanks in advance for anyone who can help me clean up the list.

I am not planning to proceed with anything at the Nice Bridge at this point.  That should probably be removed.

There was a Toronto meet back in 2016.  Not sure how much has changed since.

New Highway 401 widening opening soon by the looks of it, new Highway 427 extension, and one section of the Gardiner been completely replaced (and also the demolished ramps to Lake Shore)... some things have changed for sure, not sure if people would be interested in checking those things out though

Might be a good 2023 idea at this time in the season (and to hopefully make border crossings easier).

Indeed, is the Cumberland meet Laura mentioned for Indigenous Peoples' Day weekend still happening?

The Cumberland meet is not happening this year. Look for it next year.

I've crossed it off from the list.  The only other meet I'm still wondering about is Shawangunk.  Haven't heard anything about it recently, so I assume it's not happening.  Does anyone know for sure?

I'd say Shawangunk isn't happening. David Gulub mentioned it once, last fall (or winter), and has never brought it back up.
