Hey everyone, just wondering if the event actually took place yesterday with the weather?
Hello again everyone!
Weve been having some amazing weather recently even as the last day of summer has come and gone. That said we will be hosting the Amish Country Exotic Meet (our 6th) again next Sunday, the 7th of October. We hope to have our largest turnout yet and if the weather continues, it is likely we will. Please add your name to the list below and feel free to share this post with any other forums, friends, etc. We feature exotics at our meets but love all things automotive and as such everyone is welcome to join or meetup and cruises. Again just please add your name to the list either here or update me if you hear of any others interested and Ill gladly add them myself. (its solely a head count for the restaurant so they can block off enough parking and tables to accommodate).
Thanks in advance and were very much looking forward to this weekend!
Plain & Fancy Farm Restaurant:
3121 Old Philadelphia Pike Bird in Hand, PA 17505

Recently found this site/forum, I plan on making the end of April meet for sure. At work and registered to post a reply, will tidy up my avatar and sig later on
Sorry everyone for the delay... had to get right back to classwork the night after the meet. (ugh) Anyways, a ton of updates to report!
First off: Thanks to all who came out on Sunday, we had another great meet and good times all around, the weather held out wonderfully. Thanks to those who were back again and to the new comers who made it out as well, it was a pleasure seeing/meeting everyone. A very diverse group of cars with everything from GTRs to Cobras to Aston Martin and a Ferrari 599 GTO that was a treat to say the least! Please if you havent already, share any and all pics, I am working on the video at the moment and that will be up shortly, but did not get too many photos between filming (I will most certainly post what I do have).
Secondly: I mentioned to some folks about hopefully getting us all a discount off of food now that this is a monthly meet. That said, I would first like to thank the Plain & Fancy for being so accommodating, they again roped off parking for all of us and took it one step further by offering all of our guest (in the email attached below) a deal they dont usually offer to anyone but locals::
I hope that your group enjoyed the day at Plain & Fancy this past Sunday and that everything went smoothly for you all. I spoke with Darah (our Manager at Plain & Fancy) and Al Duncan (our CEO, whom you had met) about offering a discount to your group should you bring them consistently to our property for lunch. I think you had mentioned possibly once a month, correct? We would love to extend our “Local Loyalty” discount of 20% to each person joining your group. Our Local Loyalty Program is typically offered to locals of the Lancaster area, and though I’m sure not everyone in your group is from Lancaster, we would like to offer anyone that takes part in your group meal this discount. We would actually provide each person with a Local Loyalty card; the cards are reusable at both of our properties (Miller’s and Plain & Fancy), so each time you visit you’ll be given that discount.
Given each person who joins up with our monthly meet now gets a 20 percent discount, the cost for lunch is reduced from around $19.95 a person to $15.96 (before tax and tip), leaving us with an all inclusive, bottomless and homestyle meal for just under 20 dollars a person (includes tax and a tip). Not a bad deal if you ask me. Again thank you to the Plain & Fancy Farm for offering us this great deal.
Third: This is very important as it pertains to all of the meets upcoming and most recently this month's meetup in Lancaster... Please read and I will also update Post #1 of this thread to match. After an attempt to alternate between the Plain & Fancy Farm and Shady Maple with scheduling, it is clear that the Shady Maple location will be too difficult to organize sufficient parking, given the nature of the meetup. Given the meetup must be on a Saturday, their busiest day of the week, the parking is always an issue and would therefore not be conducive of a large scale get together of cars. I would like to first apologize for an inconvenience this may have caused and it is my hope that we may still be able to arrange to make it out to Shady Maple atleast once this year. All else aside, the Plain & Fancy will be able to accommodate all of accordingly and we will be therefore having each months meet at this location. We have had great success with all three of the meets thus far and it only makes sense to keep doing what works best for everyone, both as a group and for the venue. Here is the updated schedule with the location now staying the same for the next few months, and the dates to be back to the origional plan of having the meet every last Sunday of the month. Any questions or concerns please ask, I think this will work best for planning, as Sundays are the less busy of the two weekend days (especially as we get into summer and events start up).
Lastly: We have had fun runs following the meetup in the past and they were both pleasant and spirited. As a result I ask that everyone please post ideas for any and all months for locations/shows/other meets/etc. that would be worth taking a drive after lunch with anyone who is interest (everyone is welcome to join!) I will go ahead and plan that this months meet take a spirited backroads cruise up to Hershey, PA and visit Chocolate World and the see the park. For those who havent been before Hershey's Chocolate World has literally the freshest candy you can get anywhere that is Hershey's brand. If anyone is interested we can also take a drive around the Hotel Hershey (I work there so I can personally say it is beautiful all year round) Again please feel free to suggest any ideas you may have, myself and many others are open to the idea of going to other events following the Amish Country meet and I would be more than willing to arrange our schedule to accommodate these plans in advance!
Thanks for taking a moment to read all of this, sorry for throwing all this info at you guys all at once, it is all of importance and worth sharing. I am again looking forward to this months meet, to be held
MARCH 25th, 2012 @ The Plain & Fancy Farm Restaurant with lunch being served at 1:30pm. Looking forward to seeing some great cars and great people as always!
i could try and make a few. about 3 hrs or so for me. sounds like a good time.
Until some better pics are posted...here's a cell phone shot I took:
I think you should invite the people that show up there to join us here so we can help them keep intouch and also grow this great event. Please post some pics.
Bump for tomorrow!
Bump for this weekend!
