    4/27 Cobra get-together: cruise and drive-in

    Save the date!

    Friday, 4/27/18
    "4/27 Cobra get-together"
    Morrow Mountain State Park Cruise and Badin Road Drive-In
    Albemarle, NC


    I'm still working out the details, so I need your input.

    I had hoped to plan a fairly organized, regional 'first annual 4/27 cobra bash' this year, but wasn't able to get any host drive-in commitments for a special cobra night before the winter season hit. But no worries.

    With two separate movie screens, close proximity to Albemarle restaurants / hotels and the Uwharrie Mountains / Morrow Mountain State Park nearby: Badin Road Drive-In offers a lot of promise for a good time nonetheless. In fact, it may end up better just doing a loosely-organized trial run this year anyway. I'm reaching out to other regional groups, and can plan group hotel accommodations & such if there's enough interest.

    As of right now, we'll tentatively:

    * Meet Friday morning (4/27/18) in Albemarle, having already grabbed breakfast along the way from our different locales.
    * Go for a drive around the Uwharrie Mountains area.
    * Head into Morrow Mountain State Park, stopping for a hike, canoeing, sight-seeing, etc.
    * Head back into Albemarle for an early dinner.
    * Drive to Badin Road Drive-In for a movie.

    What I need your input on:
    1. Will you likely stay overnight in Albemarle Thursday night? Friday night?
    2. What other suggestions do you have as to what you might like to do?

    Sounds great!

    I hope there is a large turn out and that the Weather Man is onside!

    Cheers.

    Sorry, I will driving straight through from Seattle to Prescott.

    Hope you have a great turnout and be sure to post a bunch of pictures for those of us that can't make it.

    Was planning to get the car out for Cobra day and maybe catch up with some others, but forecast is for rain so may have to wait till 428.

    Definitely praying for sun. Forecast for Friday around Albemarle has stayed pretty positive the past few days.

    Lingering showers to the east kept the Raleigh crowd from attending, but the day ended up developing nicely around the Uwharries.

    We ended up spotted at breakfast by a local media personality:

    Then on to a fun tour of Sonny Beachum's car collection, where I found my next car:

    Then on to some curvy roads, sight-seeing, and fellowship:

    And finally, a great dinner and eventually the drive-in:
