    Default LOG 36 Princeton, NJ - Offical Thread

    Hi everyone, we want to make a big welcome to the USA7's members to attend LOG 36 in Princeton NJ. As some of you know, we have a personal like for 7's and have a number of friends on this forum.

    Here is the website: http://www.lotusownersgathering36.com/

    Watch to video to get an overview of the area and things to do. We will be updating the site regularly with new information as we move forward.

    Our expectation is that this LOG will sell out quickly due to the location. The host hotel has 302 guest rooms, we advise making your reservations early!

    Made our hotel reservations Monday.
    Had a blast in Colorado Springs, lots of interesting things to do.
    The flatlands of NJ will offer a totally different experience!
    Should be fun!
    Thanks for taking this on Glen and Kyle.

    No track day announced to this point.
    Please bear in mind that typically track days attract less than 10% of attendees yet demand a much larger % of planning and effort.

    We are researching the viability of conducting a track day and/or auto cross in conjunction with LOG 36. There are several considerations. The cost of renting a track in the North East is considerable and the number of people that actually commit to a track related event is usually too small to cover costs. The distance to travel to a track worthy of running Lotus are relatively long. And Lotus Limited has run a track day at Watkins Glen for the past two years. If that event is repeated it will be only 1 month prior to LOG.

    However, we have a committee established to determine the financial viability of have a track and/or Autocross event and if it is determined to be feasible we will update our web site and a make a public announcement.

    Greetings to all our fellow Lotus owners and enthusiasts!

    We are two and a half months away from The Lotus Owners Gathering 36 (LOG36) in Princeton, New Jersey August 5th thru 7th and do we have a great weekend planned for everyone who participates.

    The LOG36 planning committee continues to come up with all sorts of creative ideas for this LOG and we are excited about everything we have planned.

    A very important date to be aware of is MAY 20th! It's the last day for early registration and you will save $25 for registering now. After a postmark of May 20 it will cost you $125 to register. Don't delay, get your registration in the mail today.

    More importantly, early registration has privileges this year. Saturday night banquet seating selection and early entry into Grounds for Sculpture Sunday morning will be based on post mark dates of registration.

    Another important consideration is the booking of your hotel rooms. We are very close to selling out Friday and Saturday night and so far we have more than 200 people who are arriving on Thursday night. Looks like LOG36 will have an early start! Don't delay on securing your hotel room at the Princeton Marriott Forrestal.

    In case your a late planner or just can't commit, we do have an overflow hotel down the street (Westin Hotel) but remember, registration goes up to $175 after June 17th.

    We expect this LOG to have significant participation. You may never see this many Lotus' in one place again!

    Keep up to date on all the most recent news and information by checking the LOG36 web site on a regular basis.

    Join us, we are looking forward to a wonderful weekend with all our Lotus friends.

    Apparently there is and exceptionally good bakery and a brew pub in Princeton. That gives two special LOG outings. Now if anyone can suggest pizza or hot dog establishments I will be in double + good heaven.

    I recommend the bakery and brew pub - very happy customer. However, they add spare tires and not lightness!

    For pizza you will be taken care of - there is a good one in town. Don't know about hot dogs but you are in a college town so I am hopeful.

    Edit - just remembered there is a hot dog place in the town of New Hope nearby. It also has a really good brew pub and is a top place to walk around (great character, interesting shops, restaurants, etc). Its sister village on the other side of the Delaware (short walk), Lambertville is a nice place to walk around too. A backroads tour is ideal for getting there.

    Nomad Pizza in Hopewell is the best, plus it's a great drive from the hotel on country roads. It's a BYOB place, but there is a liquor store within walking distance for beer and wine. The place fills up early on Friday and Saturday nights. I typically put my name on the wait list when I arrive, and then relax in the garden and have a drink of whatever I brought. Great place and fantastic pizza (not a by the slice place, personal pies are made here).

    The best bakeries in Princeton are: Terra Momo Bread Company and Chez Alice Cafe & Bakery.

    Best brewery in Princeton is Triumph Brewery on Nassau Street.
