Alrighty Folks, here is the list of movie choices. I tried to get at least one of everything, action, comedy, drama, murder, chick flick, whatever floats your boat. I provided a link to each movies info page on Fandango so you could read up on any your unfamiliar with. Keep in mind this is a Drive-In movie, in which the sound is played through YOUR radio via FM channels. So bass could be slightly lacking, however, its a nice time to try out your Dolby pro logic II <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> Make sure when you vote on your choice of movie, you consult your wife or girlfriend as well please <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> Whatever gets the most votes is what we will go see, and whatever has the second most will be our fall back movie just in case.<p>As for the nitty gritty info. The date will be Sunday the 28th, the last Sunday in June. The first showing usually starts at 8:40pm, and gates open an hour before the show starts. So, for those of us who are from the San Francisco area, we will be meeting up where Canada Road meets Edgewood Road. There are places to park there and its a good central meeting place for us so that we can caravan down. The drive takes about 40min or so, give or take speed and traffic, but we will all be able to use the car pool lane lol <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> I propose we meet up between 6:30pm and 7:00pm to give everyone time to get to the meeting spot and then we can leave when everyone's accounted for. This should get us down to the Drive-In just as the gates open, and we should have the pick of the lot!<p>As for those that are already closer to the San Jose area, If anyone could volunteer to gather up those members at a suitable travel time and tag a meeting place for yall to meet up at, I'd greatly appreciate it as I'm not terribly familiar with the surrounding area.<p>If yall have any further questions let me know!<p>- Admissions $6.75 a person<br>- They have a full snack bar, lobby, Restrooms on the premises<br>- Date is Sunday, June 28th<br>- Time of meet up is 6:30-7:00pm (for SF folks)<p>-Chris (Foreveradvanced)<br>_____________________________________________________________<p><U>The Taking of Pelham 123</U><br><A HREF="http://www.fandango.com/thetakingofpelham123_34522/movieoverview?date" TARGET="_blank">http://www.fandango.com/thetak...?date</A>=<p><U>The Proposal</U><br><A HREF="http://www.fandango.com/theproposal_109504/movieoverview?date" TARGET="_blank">http://www.fandango.com/thepro...?date</A>=<p><U>Year One</U><br><A HREF="http://www.fandango.com/yearone_121252/movieoverview?date" TARGET="_blank">http://www.fandango.com/yearon...?date</A>=<p><U>Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen</U><br><A HREF="http://www.fandango.com/transformers:revengeofthefallen_111307/movieoverview?date" TARGET="_blank">http://www.fandango.com/transf...?date</A>=<p><U>Surveillance</U><br><A HREF="http://www.fandango.com/surveillance_119263/movieoverview?date" TARGET="_blank">http://www.fandango.com/survei...?date</A>=

Re: San Jose Drive-In GTG (Foreveradvanced)

Count me in Chris!<br>Since I would rather see Transformers in a Movie theather I'll go with Year One, Looks pretty good. George Michael never dissapoints........ <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"><br>Since I live in sac we'll just either come down (unless anyone from this area wants to meet up) to the city and meet up with you guys or meet you all there, it depends on our day, we usually headout to the city on sundays. Lucky for you since I have been gone for 4 months it will be easy to find an excuse for us to get away and spend some time together and also meet new faces!<br>Ill await the concensus of the meet before i make and decisions!!

Well shoot, too early for me, we arrive in Monterey on the 29th, and our household goods show up the next weekend. Will look forward to other Bay Area gtgs in the future though.

Re: San Jose Drive-In GTG (Foreveradvanced)

Oh, also as a note, I'll not be voting on the movie frankly because I don't mind seeing any of the movies. However, in the case that a tie breaker is need, I will vote <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: San Jose Drive-In GTG (Foreveradvanced)

Alrighty, I just wanted to refresh the topic and make sure everyone see's and knows about it, as it should be a fun night. I've got some good and some bad news unfortunately. The good news is I've extended the GTG to the C30 folks also in the bay area as they have made it out to our last GTG and are a bunch of great guys! The bad news is I may have to drop out as It looks like I'm getting called in to cover vacation shifts at work. I'm going to try to get it off, and just may use a sick day <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> but none the less I wanted to let everyone know, and in the case I can't, I'll find someone to head the outing, so by no means would it be called off.<p>Anyways, lets see more votes coming in for movies, and more people ready to go!<p>-Chris

Re: San Jose Drive-In GTG (Foreveradvanced)

Chris<p>It may be better to maybe either push this meet back or condense it with the Carlsen Car show meet, since we will all be together at once. I was just dropped with a family get together for tom so i dont think i can make it now. I normally dont flake but i dont think I can get out of this one..<p>Let me know what you guys come up with. <p>Ev

Re: San Jose Drive-In GTG (Foreveradvanced)

Well it seems this GTG has taken a turn for the worse, I've spoken to some of you and some of you have posted and it seems like we aren't going to have enough for a decent GTG. So for now we will have to tuck this little gem away for the future. Maybe the month after the carlsen show.<p>Thanks for the interest all, to bad it couldn't go through, none the less I'll keep trying to come up with more ideas for future get togethers that intertwine between shows such as the carlsen and davis meets and VOCA club events!<p>Thanks,<br>Chris

Sorry I couldn't make it, there was a death in the family and that's caused everything to go into a tailspin on this end. We'll catch you next time.
