    Default 2016 Toy Run, 4 December

    December 4, 2016 is set for the next Toy Run.

    Same game plan as the past few years.

    8 AM - Gather Ebina Service Area (south), Tomei Expressway

    9AM - Depart Ebina Service Area

    If the number of bikes is large, we'll split up and one group will go to Sanders and the other will go to Chigasaki. If there are not so many bikes we'll go to Sanders together as one group, hang out there till about 10:30 and then go to Chigaski.

    Please bring a present for the kids, possibly two if you can carry them, one for each home if we go to both.

    If you have any questions, ideas or suggestions please post.

    Is it possible to get more information about what may not be appropriate toys.
    Anything the orphanages feel work well? Or anything they don't want?

    I'd be interested in this as well. I'd be interested in going, I just don't want to bring things that the orphanages don't find appropriate.

    Yes, the kids are very happy to have us. The director in Chigasaki said that when they get older these Toy Runs are a happy memory of their childhood.

    Will be in as ever. I'll update the FB ToyRunJapan page tonight and post on a few of the other interest groups on there. Are we reaching out to NAPS or other businesses this year?

    I'll happy to meet up with anyone interested from south Kanagawa at NAPS on route 1 around 7am (I have to ride east to get on the Tomei to head west to the correct Ebina SA!).

    How about a long/lat or a google map pin drop for the meet spot. I have missed rides before because I'm an idiot and can't find the right location.

    As for route - I shall defer to the wiser people than I, who come up with that particular brand of magic.

    As for Westies, I wonder if there should be a North Kanagawa/Sagami/Hachioji meet up (For Yokota people etc) and head down the new Ken-0 and meet up at your suggested Naps Kanagawa hook up.
    Worth mentioning or suggesting on FB page

    Didnt hear about this until too late when I ran into the group at Ebina and again later at a couple of toll gates.

    Hope it went well. Great cause.

    I'll try to join next year and might be able to support otherwise. Who is the main organizer? Can you PM me or leave a message here?
