    The Unofficial Leavenworth Drive Premeet 2018

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hello to everyone,

    This meet started as a group of friends many years ago, but has grown into a bigger event each year. Last year there were people from all over the PNW at the meet, with about 50 cars on the top floor.

    As of right now we are a little more than a month out from The Leavenworth Drive 2018. Its scheduled for Saturday June 16th 2018.

    For those of you that aren't aware of what the Leavenworth Drive is, it's a charity drive to the small Bavarian town of Leavenworth, WA. They expect a $10 donation per car. It's aimed to be a european car drive, but obviously other car enthusiasts want to be included, so be prepared to expect guys like " Can I bring my Honda or Subaru?" It happens every year, and there's nothing you can do about it since the drive takes place on public roads. There's more info on the actual event in the link below. They have a FB page as well you can follow.

    http://leavenworthdrive.com

    For many years, the event organizers would hold a pre-meet at Bellevue College. Unfortunately this year they have reverted to the 2015 way of having many smaller meets at three different locations. For this reason I'm putting together a different (and better meeting spot!) on our own like we have been doing for several years right next to the college. This allows forum members, local car groups, friends, or whomever to meet beforehand, park next to each other, and leave as a group.

    The meeting place will be the top floor of the Eastgate Park and Ride in Bellevue Washington probably between 8:30 and 9:30. This is also a great photo location. For those that have never been there before, its located adjacent to Bellevue College and right next to I90, theres a back entrance that takes you almost to the top floor. Not that it matters since there's no main BC meet, however in years past this allows everyone to avoid the hassle of getting in/out of the BC parking lot, which if you've ever done that you know how much of PITA it is, and the sooner we get to Leavenworth the better chance of finding parking you have. Parking is very limited in the town and there will be thousands of extra cars. It really becomes a free for all brawl. So the sooner the rollout the better chances for parking.

    Also it should be said that this is a public area. No revving or burnouts. The cops will not bother us if your respectful to the property and the neighbors surrounding the area.

    The event organizers try to encourage the 405N to 522 to HWY2 route to Leavenworth. The route that our little group has taken is the I90 east, a quick stop at the Safeway in Cle Elum to regroup, or bathroom break, then continue on to Blewett Pass into Leavenworth. This unconventional route has allowed us to bypass the HWY2 massacre that happens every year. 800 to 2000 more cars on the road means some pretty long backups. This route has always been smooth sailing, plus i90 means we get to cruise next to each other, and Blewett pass is a great driving road. Occasionally theres traffic on Blewett Pass, but they do have passing lanes every so often.

    If anyone has questions feel free to PM me. This isn't exclusive to just AZ forum members, I extend the invite to anyone that wants to come have a good time with good people. I try to stick with a 9:30am rollout, my car is a 2008 Avus Silver RS4. Its loud so people usually know when its time to roll out. We exit out the back side of the complex just one floor down, continue up the hill, take a right at the stop sign, and a left at the HOV on ramp onto I90. This route for exiting works much faster and allows more cars to stick together when cruising.


    For the TL:DR people

    Who: Everyone
    What: Leavenworth Drive premeet
    When: June 16th, 2018 8:30-9:30AM
    Where: Eastgate Park and Ride, Bellevue, WA
    Why: To avoid the BC parking mess, to avoid the HWY 2 back up, and to avoid the parking mess in Leavenworth

    Last year we probably had 50 cars show up at this location. Itís grown each year. WSP doesnít bother us as long as we are respectful to the property.

    Thatís the unfortunate thing about Leavenworth, not a lot of parking. Many people drive up the day before to secure that front row parking. Youíll see the same vwís all stance out every year on the Main Street. Gotta get their fill of Internet famousness to feed their narcissism.

    Sure, Weíve had all sorts of makes and models in the past show up. However there was one year when a group of Bmwís came with some of their friends and drove like complete ass hats, such as passing people on both shoulders. They werenít invited back, so just let them know not to be that guy. We all like to have fun with our cars but thereís a limit of whats acceptable on these drives.

    I've had my car for less than a year and it's a work in progress. I'm going halfway as well. Anybody coming from the south: Des Moines, Federal Way, Kent or Tacoma that want to hookup and roll to the meet up?

    I likely wont even have real plates by the time of the cruise. Stock cars are still fun to drive! Congrats on the new pick up.
