    The major C & C in my area has been moved 4 times, once because it out grew the coffee shop's parking and the other three times due to bad actors. The current one is in the parking lot of a mega church and there is a large local police presence to damp down the testosterone. 300 - 400 cars attend the monthly event and I have not observed any burn outs, fights or other bad behavior. There is a fair amount of engine revving but there are no residential areas close by so it is tolerated.

    It seems like most everyone wants to hear my flat plane crankshaft Mustang at high revs with the exhaust opened up. I give a demonstration a couple of times during the event, keeping the revs to 5k. I haven't had any complaints so far.

    Default A Bad Example

    Below is the sign posted at the exit from Katie's, onto Georgetown Pike. The other picture was taken a few weeks ago, of a guy who decided to do a burnout up the exit, towards Georgetown Pike. Are you impressed? The cop, who was sitting across the street, and beat the truck thru the intersection, was not impressed. A large group of Katie's regulars applauded the cop.

    Default Katie's, 09/01/18

    The first day of September was overcast, but dry. I saw some lightning on the way to the event, but never saw a drop of rain.

    Nevertheless, attendance was down... but still not at all bad. I saw my first Corvette ZR-1 there today. One of my favorites is the Intermeccanica Italia - a simply gorgeous spyder.

    P.S.: Don't miss the McGovern party on Sept. 8th:

    Default Katie's, 09/08/18

    All week long, we've had temperatures in the nineties, and high humidity. The weekend is down to the seventies, but it rained a good portion of Friday night, and it's threatening rain today. When I drove to Katie's around 5:00AM, there was no rain, and the streets were dry. However, the threat of rain meant that it was after 6:30AM before we had a good crowd.

    Default Katie's, 09/15/18

    It was overcast, with a very light mist, on my way to Katie's, early this morning. However, it never rained, and we had a pretty good turnout.

    OK, I give up. What is the first, red, car?

    Skoda Felicia. Late '90s, I believe. Has a 1.1 liter engine. My friend followed him up Georgetown Pike on the way to the event - he said it was not even doing the speed limit. Cute, though!
