GenVibe/HCMO Mini Meet 2019-- Erie, PA 10/4-10/6.

Post by zbyers » Tue Sep 03, 2019 9:02 am

Hi Friends!

We are planning a little mini-meet in Erie, PA from 10/4-10/6. Nothing major planned…Just a get together of several of the “OGs” of the Vibe and Matrix worlds. Barber (thebarber on here) has received us a block for Red Roof Inn at 7865 Perry Hwy, Erie, PA 16509. The block code for your group is B054HCM019. Please give the block code to your guests. The phone number your guests would call to book their reservation is our general reservations at 1-800-733-7663; they are open 7 days a week, 6 AM-3 AM EST. Cost is around $85+ tax

If you’re in the HCMO group, you can see the FB meet here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1065487543656558/


As a side event, there is a Fall Drift Event, with currently 83 drivers registered, going on at Lake Erie Speedway (15 minute drive from the hotel). Facebook event for this can be seen here: https://www.facebook.com/events/lake-er ... 063467350/


I will be at the drift event for a good chunk of the weekend as a few friends are racing. It’s $10 to get in and spectate for a day; and I think $20 for all 3 days of it.

Erie is also now home to Underdog BBQ. If you watch Discovery, it is the restaurant that they are showing on Undercover Billionaire. (Sorry for ruining the ending) lol. It is a nice little restaurant on the west side of Erie.

If you’re bored, go for a scenic cruise out on Presque Isle. It should be gorgeous this time of year.

Hope to see some of you folks come out and visit!

I just finished up a trip to Dallas for a pen show (and to let my daughter wander around a petting zoo/aquarium at a mall in Fort Worth). Not going to drive to Pottsylvania.

Hope everyone else has fun!

The kids always come first...well, almost always!

Erie has an airport you can fly into :lol:

I will snag some pics and post them.

I've driven through Erie enough that I don't see much worth flying in for *snicker*.

Now, if I could drive up, at least people could tell me what a hunk of junk I'm driving.

You're not wrong... Not much in Erie worth seeing, especially with living only an hour from there. Sadly, they have 10x the things there than where I live so I frequent Erie more than wanted.

We ALL drive a hunk of junk!

All of the photos posted that I've seen show cars that at least have all the dents banged out, and no obvious surface rust. I've never bothered to replace or fix my hood, or the epithet someone carved into the front bumper below the headlight :)

We had about 10-12 members show up. Several of whom are/were on the GV website, too. These fellas have all been gathering as HCMO (Hard Core Matrix Owners) since the vehicles were produced. Great group of guys and a great weekend with them. Hope we can get more people in the future!

Ah, man! I can't believe I missed this one. Any plans for when the next one might be?

They are still tentative... We are leaning towards probably Pittsburgh, PA for HCMO in late May or early June.

The annual GenVibe Meet is still tentative. I, or KITT222, will post info once he has nailed it down. He is take the reigns back after taking last year off due to personal obligations. However, if he does not post the info here, I will make sure I do.

Check us out on Facebook, too, as that is where many have (sadly) migrated too. I am on both, to keep the none Facebookers informed here. Plus, it's much calmer and has less unneeded dialogue. :lol:


PS: update your profile so we can see your location. We'd also love to see your ride. :D

Will do! I'm on the facebook group as well, but I find that getting information is a bit better here on the forums than on the facebook group.
