3rd Annual Texas FT86 Day Meet/Cruise

Here is the event that everyone has been waiting for the 3rd Annual Texas FT86 day meet/cruise. The date is soon approaching (August 6 - 8/6) and this year it falls on a Thursday. Since most people will be doing their 9-5 thing we will be holding the 86 meet/cruise on the Saturday after, 8/8/15. So mark your calendars and come join in the fun and meet some fellow enthusiasts from around the state.

Much like last year we will follow suit with the local San Antonians and will be running the Three Sisters route which can be found HERE. Communication is key with these cruises. I will be bringing my set of 2 way radios and I ask if anyone else has a set to bring, it would help the group as a whole.

Of course we want as many 86, FR-S and BRZ drivers as possible but anyone can come and have a good time. Last year had a awesome turn out and we hope this year will be even better. We ask that everyone be courteous and respectful to one another and to whoever we come across. Just make sure to treat everyone how you would like to be treated.

Facebook is up and CLICK HERE to go to it.

Please mention if you are in and are bring anyone with you. I will need to head count for Bent Rim Grill so they can be prepared for the amount of food and drinks that we will consume.

The planning of small details like sponsors and times for this is still going on and I will keep this thread up to date on any changes and when the times are finalized. Thanks to @Dustin, @Extreme86, @MoebiusStrip, @OVR_RUN, and @Texaz Boy for the help in setting up this years event.

Guidelines/Safety

First and foremost, you're not going to impress anyone being a showoff. No burnouts, donuts, excessive revving, yada yada, you get the idea. Don't bee the asshat everyone looks at in disapproval.

Safety is a big concern. Yes this is meant to be a fun drive and will be a spirited run for some. I know personally I plan on pushing my car a bit. However, don't try to push your car beyond it's limits or your own. Goes back to the first rule......DON'T BE A SHOWOFF!! Drivers must be alert and ready to immediately let off and stay in their lane. Watch out for road conditions and adjust driving/speed accordingly. Respect other motorists. Stay alert!!! If bicycles are out...we need to ramp it down so nobody gets killed. This is where the two way radios will come in handy. So if you have one, BRING IT so you can be informed. We want everybody to have fun, but know that you are responsible for your own actions and those actions could affect other people so everyone please be on your A game.

Be warned that on the way to/from Medina on several runs people have gotten tickets. So be cautious in that area. Also the last gas station is in Leakey and that will be the last pit stop to get gas so make sure you have plenty before you leave there. We suggest everyone to fill up their tanks in Bandera before arriving in Medina. This should save us some time in Leakey for sure and when Extreme86 does this he has enough fuel to do the run and it gets him back to San Antonio.

Morning Location

We will meet at The Apple Store (not the computer brand) and park across the street there will a short briefing and then we will head out. Like last year the runs will be split up into groups, planning on 10-15 per group. If there are any late comers, there will be one last pit stop in Leakey for you to catch up.

The Apple Store (think apple orchard)
14024 State Hwy 16 North, Medina, TX 78055

To those that are FI or E85 it would be a good idea to bring an extra 5 gallon gas can of the fuel that you need. I feel that this is self explanatory and if your one of these people you should already know the struggle.

Shirts

We are planning to do t-shirts again this year thanks to MoebiusStrip and OVR_RUN for getting that started. Shirts are going to be around $10 this year as well. Thread for the shirts are up. Post in the thread to get your order in or you most likely wont get a shirt.
