Are there any meets coming up in Northern California?
None that I know of, well G8 specific. I'm always down for a meet/cruise, but I'm not spending much time in NorCal these days.
You might want to check out the NorCal GOATS, as they tend to have all sorts of things going on (although the winter months tend to be slower). They are very welcoming of G8s and there are several of them who hang-out regularly (besides myself). I know this weekend (12/4) the NorCal GOATs are going to the NorCalVettes Annual Charity TOY Run. Everyone was very welcoming of the G8 last year at the cruise (and I wonder if there will be any there this year).
