2nd Annual "DubRun" to the Poconos - Saturday, October 27th (rain or shine)
-APR TUNED- and -REDLINE SPEED WORX- present "DubRun" to the Poconos on Saturday, October 27th hosted by -GARDEN STATE EUROS-. The annual "DubRun" was created to host the final cruise and event of the season before winter comes and freezes us out of enjoying our cars. The "DubRun" is an ongoing yearly event for all European cars with a new cruise route planned each year. This event will be held rain or shine and we also made sure DubRun will not interfere with any other events in the area!

-M.SPAD PHOTOGRAPHY- will be onsite for the entire day and will be accepting cash or credit/debit card payments through the -SQUARE- iPhone app at -BARLEY CREEK BREWERY- for the DubRun photo coverage. Pre-pay M.Spad photography and you will receive a password "code" to access an online album of finalized, original photos from the event!

NOTE ABOUT CONDUCT
Garden State Euros (GSE) does not tolerate any misuse of vehicles including burnouts, engine revving, loud sound systems, speeding, racing, immature driving or unsafe practices. Local Tannersville police will be on site and we will report or remove any unwanted attendees. Our club also tracks offenders and provide the information to the local police and list them on an -"Official Tri-State Meet, Club, Event BLACKBALL List"- thread. Attendees are not to take these precautions as a threat but rather a realization that Garden State Euros (GSE) will protect their club and events at any cost for the true European car enthusiasts and community. Their events and meets are simple; arrive, park, turn off the car and hang out with other enthusiasts. With the anticipated turnout, Garden State Euros (GSE) wants everyone to know that this is a family oriented club with parents and children attending and strict conduct rules will be enforced. We also reserve the right to refuse admission for attendees to Barley Creek Brewery and will notify the local police of offenders from last year's event.
Overnight accommodations are available at the local Days Inn of Tannersville which is within walking distance or 5 minutes away from -BARLEY CREEK BREWERY-. The group rate for rooms is $65 plus tax per night but you need to call and reserve your room under "DubRun" or reserve your room online using the promo code "CGDUB" by October 1st so we obtain the 10 room minimum required for this group rate.
Address: Hill Motor Lodge Road, Tannersville, PA 18372
