Default The Official AWNE Waltham GTG Wrap-Up

Thanks again to all who came. An amazing turnout somewhere in the neighborhood of 75 to 80 cars. Plus a beautiful late afternoon and early evening. No rain, except for a few sprinkles at around 9:30pm as MEEM and I were chatting in the parking lot.

Thanks also to everyone who stayed for dinner at Uno's. I spoke to one of the wait staff and they were really happy with how busy we kept them.

I'll admit that I was really nervous about the parking situation, but in the end I think everything worked out fine. I wish the parking by model could have worked out better, it did to a point, but in reality there were to many other patrons at the restaurant and at some point I was like what the hell it's every Audi for themselves.

Many, many thanks go out to the following people:

Boston Driver, who secured the location for us.

The contest judges:
FinallyS4
doctorno
stoplitz
sbh tuned
audisnawb
NoahD
Brett

Plus the group from the NAAC.

Here are a couple of pics that I took of the group.




For those you care, here is the recap for the Best of Model and Best of Show contest.

Best A4: (tie) DosQuattros / A4AdMan
Best S4: Stoplitz
Best A6/S6/RS6/allroad: nene
Best A3:rastheimer
Best A8: Non-Turbo Tom
Best TT: (tie) MEEM / alms_TT_ny
Best "Old School": QU4TRO (C4 S4 from NH)

Best of Show: (as voted by group applause): nene

I took some pics of the winning cars but by then it was getting dark out so they are not that great. Plus I'm not a good digital photographer.

Best A4: (right to left) DosQuattros / A4AdMan


Best S4: Stoplitz


Best A6/S6/RS6/allroad: nene
Nelson had to leave before I could get a pic so I swiped a pic to use.


Best A3: rastheimer


Best A8:


Best TT: meem / alms_TT_ny
meem


alms_TT_ny


Best "Old School": QU4TRO
Pic came out way to dark to use, SORRY

Thanks again for everyone who came. I wish I could have met/spoken to more of you but so many people so little time. Hope to see you in June at the KTR event or at one of the upcoming NAAC events.

As far as the next "Big One" for our group, I am thinking late July/early August.

Default Thanks for playing ring-leader on this one! Nice job! (my pics inside)

I am glad that I was able to finally make it, although I missed the "best-of-show" contest...although it is hard to compete against perfection (nene's RS6 as usual took top honors in the class). Well, at leat I got to park next to his car!

Here are a few of the pics that I took this evening...

My late arrival...washed, clayed, waxed, etc...VVRRRROOOOM!!!


Mr. Lee, right before he took my pic standing on that fence...


...some more cars, and either an intimate moment or an argument...you decide!


...I think it was not an argument, or they made up pretty quickly...


...some more cars, and that HAWT A3 roofline...


...some more cars...no cuddling here...


..Yogee (striped shirt) haggling with my main man Billy (brown coat), most likely about installation of his newly acquired Eibach sport springs...


Okay, so I found a spot...next to nene's RS6 (RSSIX, great plate!)...at least I got to compare the spoilers and exhaust...but his wheels...NICE!!!


Our matching spoilers, but my car just pales in comparison...at least I know it was mounted correctly...


Then, TeddyBGame arrived with his new Recaro seats...


..and now a word from the folks representing the North Atlantic Audi Chapter...


...Shayna's ride, love that Imola!


...a few of the C5 platform representing...


The virtual sea of A4s...except for TeddyBGame's Avant...


ArchiTecT's 2.7T looking good...loving those rims!!!


Parting shot...sun getting too low for good pics now...


Thanks Dave for organizing this one! Great turnout, and I wish I could have stayed for dinner. Nice to see several familiar faces, and to meet a few new folks today. I am looking forward to our next big GTG, which is KTR in June (under the care of A4Rye). Then the Larz Anderson Museum for German Car Day. After that, maybe another Uno's run in late-July or early-August???

Hope everyone had a good time and a safe drive home!!!

Default Your car, as usual, looked terrific! But, I see you now have competition...

I wonder what you will pull out of your arsenal to reclaim the top spot...

Default Wow for not getting there until 6:45 you got a lot of pics. I guess you can do that when you're not

acting as "ring leader". When I got home tonight and saw that I only had 12 pics I was shocked.

Glad you could make it.

Default actually ....

i think at all previous meets my cars have been disqualified for one reason or another ;-) in this case, i showed up late (6:20), which i thought would be sufficient to disqualify me, but it seems not :-O
