Laaaadieees and gentlemen its that time again, Krash got the ball rolling last year, so it's my turn to get the ball rolling this year, I figure.
2011's SoCal Meets NorCal cruisie + meet was one of the best turnouts California Gens have ever produced, with fifty plus cars, and with all fifty of those cars driving in some cases 5+ hours to meet in beautiful Pismo beach, it was one of the best weekends any of us have ever had. Especially for those of us who drove back south, crashed at my place hours for two hours, got back up and drove to San Diego for EAF.
This post will stay reserved for universal information such as WHERE, WHEN, and HOW. Post #2 is SoCal reporting roster & roll-up schedule ONLY
. Somewhere after that as soon as Krash posts up THAT post is reserved for NorCal reporting roster & roll-down schedule etc.

** SoCal directions/roll station info is in Post#2 **
** Norcal directions/rollout schedule pending **
: The 2nd Annual Gathering of Genesis Coupe drivers from across the fruited (and in some spots not so fruited) plains of California
: Because nobody went to jail last time, so we gotta push our luck
Last year's BBQ ended up being a success however I think we can all agree we'd like a little more space to park. That being the case we have located a beach park directly to the west of Vandenberg AFB/Lompoc Federal Penitentiary. Sounds like a real vacation spot dont it?
This park has alot of pros - no surrounding residential dwellings, no nearby businesses or buildings of any kind, long distance from civilization, and not much to burn down. The beach is actually walking distance. However, so is the Amtrak train track.
This spot is a hair south of Pismo so it's gonna favor the SoCal drivers a bit, should put everyone about equally in the sh*tter for drive time, which is almost all Pacific Coast Highway BTW - about 4-5hrs for either NorCal or SoCal groups.
Photographer Rolling Shot Slots
We have a chase car driving with us the entire day. It is a five seat VW stationwagon w/ pano sunroof for standup shots. The car has four slots for photographers (five if they're cozy)

VENDORS & RAFFLE INFO
Any/all vendors are invited to attend, last year we had PowerAXEL and ARK in attendance. Last year PowerAXEL actually cruised with us the entire way and was kind enough to perform tweak tuning at the meet for a couple drivers in between beers!
Vendors please post if you are going to attend, if you will be raffling, and what you will be raffling off. Vendors are responsible for covering their own raffle tickets, strippers, hookers etc.
1. Every attending driver must bring with them one each of the following items: A snack item (chips/funjuns/amphetamines) A core food item (hot dog/burgers) A consumable beverage (also known as a drink, sodas for example)
This is to avoid what happened last year where NorCal brought all the food and SoCal ate it all. If you bring burgers or hot dogs, please bring buns. Dont need to bring alot, just one or two per person. Krash and I will coordinate to handle the explosives with which to cook the food.
2. There will be a strictly enforced every ricer left behind policy. Showboating and tearing around like a f*cking moron means you get left behind, kicked out, shot at, spit on, etc etc so don't do it. Lompoc prison is VERY closeby.
3. NO CAMERAS LEFT BEHIND!
Last year we only got a handful of pics and videos because we were all busy enjoying the awesome weather, cruising with our friends etc etc etc. Christrax from NorCal however put together an awesome music video and a couple guys got a bunch of good photo stock, so lets AMP THE MEDIA UP this year.
