This was originally posted on the Mid Atlantic section of NASIOC, but the organizer is opening it to any Subaru owners and asked me to post it here, as well.



The meet will be Held June 20th and 21st starting at the Swigart Auto Museum and ending at Raystown lake


Staying both days isn't a requirement. Most of the meet will be done Saturday. Sunday is just for those who want to stay late and not head back home that night.


Swigart Auto Museum which is basically right near the entrance of the lake. The museum is located right on Rt. 22 (For detailed directions please visit the website of the auto museum. I have been in contact with them and they are willing to host us for free. ($4 to get in the museum)

I am going to host the meet at the Swigart Auto Museum on the morning/afternoon of Saturday June 20th. And in the afternoon we will take a cruise to get something to eat and then take a nice cruise down to the lake. (More info on this below). By looking at the Google maps you may think that there isn't enough parking but there is. Swigart staff informed me that we can take up the parking lot and all of the grass in front and if needed we can park on the sides as well. If you wish to camp at the lake on Sunday that is up to you.

I'm probably in pending work scheduling, etc. Been looking for a reason to visit this museum since I found about about it a few years back but the drive has always been too far just to go there.
