The Great Northeast Meet, May 20th & 21st 2006
#1
Edit, 4/10/06

Please see below for a list of items to bring for the BBQ on Sunday. Also, if you haven't yet, let us know how many will be attending so we can get ya on the list. Any questions just post in this thread. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />



Come one, come all! <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/004.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt004' />



OK, so here's the skinny.



This is going to be a full weekend Titan Meet! Some of us will be camping, others staying in Hotels. Some will be coming from as far away as Texas and Florida for this!!! (special props to vshortt and BigSkiff for making this trip!!!) This will be the weekend of May 20th & 21st. I will also list a few of Paragons recommended Hotels to stay at. If your staying at a Hotel remember to tell them your going to Paragon. Most Hotels will give you a discount. For those that choose to camp, I have spoke with The Red Ridge Lake Camp Ground and they will accommodate us as a group which will be really cool. The campground has full hook ups for travel trailers too. I will be arriving at the campground on Friday afternoon and leaving Monday morning. For those that wish to camp and would like to stay together as a group just let me know so we can arrange that. I can't wait, and it's only January! This should be a blast! <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/004.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt004' />



We will be meeting at the Paragon Adventure Park for a day of trail riding on Saturday May 20th, 2006. The gates open at 8am, but they recommend we get there a little early. Paragon said that reasonable size groups (10-15 trucks) do not have to make any special reservations. I would like to keep a running tally here of who will be attending so we can keep an eye on the number of people going. If we get a really large crowd we just have to let them know ahead of time. Also, make sure you read all the info on Paragons website. Anyone under 18 must have a notarized waiver with them before they can enter the park. Paragon offers trails from mild to wild. I'm sure most of us will stick to the mild stuff. lol <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/002.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt002' /> Here's a map of where Paragon is --> Paragon Map Cost is $35 per vehicle and driver, and $5 per passenger.



Then on Sunday May 21st, 2006 we will be having a BBQ at the Red Ridge Lake Camp Ground. We will hash out the BBQ details as the time gets closer. Then we can figure out who will bring what, etc. Here is a map for the campground --> Red Ridge Lake Map





Here is some Hotel info:



Comfort Inn

58 State Route 93

Hazleton, PA 18202

800-272-2522

Map

This seems to be the nicest place that is reasonably priced.

They offer a Paragon special rate of $69.95 a night.



Ramada Inn

1213 Route 309

Hazleton, PA 18201

570-455-2061

Map

This one is also nice, a little cheaper, but a little farther away.

They're special rate I believe is $59.95 a night.



Hazleton Motor Inn

615 East Broad St.

Hazleton, PA 18201

570-459-1451

map

This one seems a little less "nice" but it's cheaper yet and still not too far away. I believe this one is around $45 a night.



Now all of these Hotels claim to be less than 10 miles away from Paragon. The Red Ridge Camp Ground is about 7 miles away from Paragon, but the other direction than the Hotels.



Here is the info for the campground:

Red Ridge Lake Camp Ground

61 Miller Rd.

Zion Grove, PA 17985

570-384-4760

Map

This camp ground will cost about $25 per night for a site with electric and water for us spoiled travel trailer people. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/001.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt002' /> This includes 2 adults and 2 children. There is an extra fee for extra adults and you can also have multiple tents per site for a minimal fee as well.



Edit 1/25/06: Ok guys and gals, I just spoke with Ray at Red Ridge Lake Camp Ground. Here is the plan. Those of you that are camping, call the camp ground @ 570-384-4760 and leave a message for Ray to call you back. Then just let him know that you are making your reservations for the "Titan group". He'll get all the info he needs from you and answer any questions you might have. He said the sooner you reserve, the better the chance of getting all our sites together.



OK, I think that about covers most of it. This is now officially a go! <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/041.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt041' />

I'll letcha know. I'll be calling and making reservations in the next several days, romy. I'm gonna take Whip's word for which ones seem nice. Down here, 69 bucks gets you in a room in which the door better have 5 dead bolts. I guess they're are a bit cheaper up that way.

It's the middle of nowhere really. I wouldn't worry too much about the street crime. Remember, the camp site is only a few miles away.

For my money, I'd go with the comfort inn.



Anyone try to call and see if they'll give any kind of group rate? May be a little early now, but always worth a shot.

They already offer a Paragon special rate. And they did say that they can discuss further discounts based on the number of rooms. So I would say lets wait till maybe the end of the month and see how many definates we have. Then maybe we can book a block of rooms for a special rate. Or you guys can just book your rooms and tell them we are all part of the same group and see if we can get a discount when we get to a certain number of rooms?

I'm just going to camp I think (GF said OK to that).



I just know that in the past (weddings, etc) Comfort Inns have given group rates that were like $55/night.

Yes, you should add me to the list. I own a cabin in Western Penn that I haven't been to in a while so I can kill two bird's with with one trip this way. I've always wanted to go to one of these meets but being in S. Florida made that hard to do. Now that I live in Jacksonville, I'm closer by 6 hours. Count me in!

Sign me up for everything. This is going to be fun. I'll be coming solo or bringing a friend. No wife and kids on this one. Not 100% sure if camping or hotel but most likely hotel. Let me know where everyone is staying. Woohoo I'll finally get to test the rear locker. I better invest in some kind of paint protection. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/002.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt002' />
