Mid Valley Stangs

Any vehicles in a “convoy” must have their headlights on per CA vehicle code.
No racing, this is a cruise. Don’t jockey for position.
Be courteous of all vehicles on the road. Let traffic merge and pass as needed. Don’t try to block merging just to stay behind a club car.
If a cruise car can’t get back in line, slow and allow him in front of you.
They cruise will be slow to keep all cars together. The lead car will keep it at 65-70. Let vehicles pass. A lot of the route is two lane so be courteous.
Club President will lead the cruise down and will have direct contact with trailing car.
Two way radios are for cruise info only when on channel #3. Keep talk to a minimum. Alternate channel will be #5. Utilize a different channel for talk around. Listen to channel #3 at stops for departure info.
If a car breaks down, 1 car will stop with him. Contact President at 209-534-7375 (Secondary cell used for cruise) and will evaluate to help get car back on road.
Once we get over the Grapevine, it will be hard to stay together. Cars will get split up. Just follow directions to hotel. We will be trying to park on the south side of hotel.
