For years, I drooled over the pictures posted from the WCR, Red Rocks, Route 66, and Ockteenerfest weekends. The closest, Okteenerfest, was a 10 - 13 hour drive and I'm just not willing to do that. So we planned something similar at little closer to the center of the northeast, East Stroudsburg Pennsylvania, in hopes of drawing a pretty wide audience and a diversity of cars and owners who believe the 50th anniversary is a pretty damn special thing.

So here's the unrefined outline:
The hotel is the Super 8 by Wyndham booking for the nights of July 17, 18, and 19 which is a Friday and Saturday, departing on Sunday. This hotel has good reviews, was recently renovated, has a continental breakfast, an indoor pool, and is centrally located within striking distance of the Delaware River and the Poconos. The group rate is $76.50 a night, 2 people, for a total of $169.96. a terrific rate. No other discounts can be applied and it is cancel-able and it is reserve now and pay later. I am not certain what the rate would be if you only wanted to stay only one night, but it is possible it may be higher.

Super 8 by Wyndham
340 Green Tree Drive
East Stroudsburg, PA
570 420 - 7267 - Select the Front Desk
YOU MUST USE "PORSCHE 914 GATHERING" to get the rate. No payment is necessary at this time.

Come at your leisure on Friday as check in is after 2 pm and no dinner is planned, just a meet and greet at night.
Saturday - After breakfast, quick driver's meeting, then off to cruise some great roads with the targas off. We'll stop for lunch and several pictures along the way. Back to the hotel after 3 pm for a jump in the pool or throw a couple back or both. Later, off to dinner together at a predetermined place. Then, heading to a local car meet with the Lost in Time Car Club, who have their normal Saturday night get together. and welcomed us to join them. Back at the hotel after and break out the traditional gas can.

Couple of points - We're gonna come up with something commemorative thing to give to everybody. It will be good to see some people I haven't seen in a while, the people are equal to the cars, terrific. And I can't stop you but please, due to the nature of our weekend, no 911s, 944s, 968s, or any other 9 series that doesn't include one four. Thanks.
See ya there.

Great idea! And thanks for not making it the same date as the All Air Cooled Gathering.

I went ahead and made my resos, although the guy I spoke to could find no group under our name ("Porsche 914 Gathering"). Anyone else have any issues? I can call back at some point and try to get that cleared up.

Thanks again, Len. REALLY hoping family commitments don't bollocks this up for me somehow.

Did you call the number from this post? It directs you straight to this particular super 8. The national 800 number can’t seem to find the group. I had the same problem twice yesterday. I would call the number at the top of this post if I were you. They will straighten it out.

FYI making reservations. Guys and gals. Please use the number at the top of this post to make your reservations and get your group discount. This is the direct # to the actual hotel. If you search the hotel online, it will give you a national 800 number. They cannot seem to find our group and discount. I was disconnect twice trying to transfer to our hotel from that national center. So do yourself a favor and use the number on the top of this post. Looking forward to seeing everyone!!!

Good call, Dave. Yes, I pushed "1" to make a reservation, which transferred me to the national customer service line, apparently. You should instead push "3" to get the front desk of the actual hotel. See, I was so anxious to make the reso I couldn't even get past option 1 on the phone.

All better now (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I did not want this to interfere with the ACG or Ockteenerfest or Hershey, which are all awesome events. It's right in the middle and gives you time to enjoy those weekends if money or time is tight. No way I miss "the Gathering", which I partially plagiarized the name (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Awesome, Len! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif) Will confirm soon. Presume significant others are invited, too?

Wife is not overwhelmed at going but will for me (as a safety guide and someone to work the GPS in case we get lost...). Hopefully, some others will bring "significant others", too.
Onward!

Betty and I were considering coming.

It is a little over 1500 miles from our house. One route goes through Virginia and past DC, one route goes within 10 miles of my Father's home town in West Virginia, and one goes through the north end of the Youngstown suburb that I used to live in during the 70s.

What are you going to be doing? Any cool drives?
