LOG is the yearly gathering of Lotus owners. The 36th annual Lotus Owners Gathering (LOG 36) will be held in Princeton, NJ from August 5th thru 7th. The event is sponsored by Lotus, LTD, the largest Lotus club in the US. LOGs are planned and run by a different local chapters of Lotus, LTD, so they are held in a different venue each year. In the past few years, LOG has been held in Orlando, FL, Watkins Glen, NY, Ashville, NC, and Colorado Springs, CO.
The Philadelphia club is running LOG this year. Because the Atlantic Coast region is the most active membership in Lotus, LTD, I'd expect that turnout will be strong this year. There should be over 150 Lotus cars, and even more Lotus enthusiasts. International attendees regularly include Lotus Cars folks, and Clive Chapman from Classic Team Lotus. There are workshops about various Lotus models, a casual concours with panoramic photo, and an autocross. The Saturday night banquet features a speaker of interest to Lotus owners. If you are at all interested in the marque, this is the place to be.
Debbie and I are going up to Princeton ultra-early on Thursday morning, August 4th. We are taking two cars up. Mark Franke will, I think, be going up Friday. Duncan and Rochel Black are going up, probably Friday, as well. I hope we have a good number of NoVA Lotus folks there this year - it's pretty close this year, and there should be a HUGE number of very interesting cars there!
Here's a couple of pictures from previous LOGs: Watkins Glen, Ashville, NC and Colorado Springs.
I'll be leaving Friday night and stopping in Cape May. I'll drive up on Saturday and check out the cars, meet up, and possibly go for a drive/take pics. Later on that evening I'll drive back to the Cape. I'm not registering or participating in any of the official events.
We were going to head up Thursday, but now thinking probably Friday. Would love to get a group together for the ride up. Im thinking maybe hit the road around 9 am. Late enough to miss rush hour traffic and still be in Princeton in time for a late lunch. If anyone is interested in meeting up to form a caravan, let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-309-4793. Cheers, Duncan
