Anthony, there's location details on the Events page

We traditionally meet in the Bay Islip Plaza (King Kullen) shopping center, on the south west intersection of Montauk Highway and Saxon Avenue.
We usually have a decent turn out, so just look for all the decorated VW's!

We'll post time information soon, it is important to arrive within a window of time because the parade starts and you need to be in with us to participate. Else, you get stuck when they shut down the roads!

Also, keep an eye on your email as I'll be sending info out before the parade!

Get well! This is ALWAYS a fun parade!

So now you take Catholic holidays, and Jew holidays?!

Rule 2 of the DVG: Glenn must make at least 20% of the annual club event roster, or be flogged by Mike.

You can ask Raj, Christine and "other Mike" what Rule 1 was.

What time is every gathering and what time does it usually kick-off? I remember a few years ago the club met in a small parking lot on Montauk Highway and Brentwood Road. Has this changed?

Just East of that John.
Montauk Highway and Saxon...
Parade kick off is at 2 pm, they usually shut the roads down at about 1-115 IIRC.
Plan on being there between 1245 and 1. We usually have a communal Dub Decorating hour, before standing and watching the parade (really, more like Carol doing a Jig while the mummers mummer by)
Then we hop in, cruise to 5th avenue and make our way to Babylon for lunch after.

As a new member of the Green Bus Club, this event is requisite for your probationary period.

Bring the family.

My son Sean and maybe a few of his buddies will be there. My daughter will be back from college the day before and the girls plan to go into city for play and stay over night. So I will do parade but have to skip lunch for going home to catch LIRR to city to meet them. Can't wait!

That's fine... Just remember, sage owners are an exclusive lot. You think I'm kidding... But it is a statement of fact that when you arrive at a camp out, somehow the Sage buses always wind up with or very near each other.
You don't get this degree of fraternity in the Chrome Club...

Uh, "Ask your wife!" No, really... That wasn't a dirty wife joke. I mean seriously, go check with Christine.

I am also hoping [the original] Rao will be topless for this one! JK
