If anyone has walkie-talkie's, bring them. They've worked great on the large group drives I've organized...

Looks like another meet will held shortly. As always the fun run is a tradition. When there are a lot of attendees (20+) the fun run becomes challenging to say the least. It is best to keep the speed 5 to 10 over the posted limits. The more cars in the "train" the harder it is to do this.
Those of us who oversee the drive have observed some participants intentionally stopping and waiting for a gap to open up in the caravan, then drive much too fast to catch up presumably having fun while doing so.
This is totally unacceptable!
Many of the participants are unfamiliar with the area being driven in. It is not fair or safe as they may feel the need to drive excessively fast to catch up as well.
The rest of the driving public sees how we behave. We do not want to give them the impression Subaru enthusiasts are reckless. All it would take is one call to the police and we all have a problem for this and future meets.
We will be keeping an eye out for people stopping, waiting and stomping on it or any other form of asshattery. Those that are observed driving in an overly unsafe manner will be asked not to return, and / or the fun runs will stop.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
As the drive nears Victory in Downingtown there are a two traffic lights to negotiate. Below is a link to guide you through Downingtown:

I don't know the route you're looking to take (lights and other stops), but my drives are always in the boonies, so there's not an issue with 1-2 mile range. Relay that the group broke up, lead cars pull over to wait.Originally Posted by Sasquatch
CB is ideal (and what is used on the 48 Hours of Tri-State), but that group is larger, and they're more expensive.
The train of cars (30-ish) is far from a mile long. I'd guess the radios we tried were simply not powerful enough.
Something to consider...
Every time I've done a drive, I've gone on Google maps and outlined the route with markers/labels for each turn and given everyone a link to download it. For people riding solo, it may not be as useful, but people with a passenger could benefit from it in case they get left behind.
In the beginning I partly improvised the fun run as I drove along which was a lot of the fun. With the long line of cars it has become shorter and fixed for the most part. JR, Jesse and I have discussed breaking the group up into two. As JR is not able to make it tomorrow we will have to try next time.
The cruise was definitely my favorite part of the meet last time (other than the foodage). Really looking forward to it again!
