We will be having a fun run to Pacific City, Oregon Sunday,July 17th, 2016.

This is the beach where the Dory launch is. Cars are allowed to park on the beach, which should provide some great photo opportunities. as always, this is a family Friendly event, open to anyone who likes Datsuns. it is not required to be a member of any particular club. I hope you are able to join us.

At the moment I am leaning towards meeting at the rest stop between Wilsonville, and Woodburn, around 6am, so we can get down to Pacific City, in time to enjoy the beach, before we have to head back. I'm sure there will be other meet up locations posted before the day of the fun run.

What are high and low tide that day?

 

 

A suggestion...go through forest grave and banks from 26.

The whole route all the way in to tillamook is like a race track. Fun drive.

I hadn't thought to check the tides. I probably should do that.

Also,thanks for the advice on the route! I do hope to make it a Fun drive for everyone. We are going to try to take Hwy 101 as much as possible too.

I second that route, it's by far the best way to get out there.

I'm supposed to get my days off switched to Sunday-Monday rather than Tuesday-Wednesday. If it happens by this I will be there!

Looks like a fun trip, can't make it though, this is the weekend we have scheduled for the Datdoug Memorial meet. A true Ratsun person that saved a lot of Datsuns and found good homes for them. And would do anything he was able to do to help fellow Ratsun people out

We completely understand that. I hadn't seen a post about the memorial meet for Datdoug,until now,or we would not have chosen the same date.

I will openly say (and I am sure Al would agree),that if ANYONE feels they have to make a choice between Datdoug's memorial meet,& our fun run, please feel free to choose Datdoug's memorial! We will have other fun runs,but there will never be another Datdoug.

I completely agree with that Loren . I personally can not go to Washington this weekend . And would completely encourage all that have the ability to honor his memory by driving to that get together do so . Nothing is more important than paying respect to those who have done so much for the hobby .

 

For all those in the area of the Oregon coast line on the 17th, we will be meeting all up and down the coast as we Cruise to pacific city .

I would like to thank the Datslocos "cult" leaders for giving their permission to attend the memorial for Datdoug.
