Does anyone attend this event? (May 30-June 1)

It might be a good event to get the word out on our 100th Anniversary show.

I was thinking about going, but I don't have the summer school schedule yet.

BD-Have you ever been? Don't they have a huge swap meet?

BD-I am going to Sugar on Saturday night. Tell them to be careful, there is still slush all over the roads and it is still snowing. Do they have 4x4?

I'm not sure that I will be able to make it. Summer school is starting the 27th, so I won't have Friday off to travel. I hope to get up there sometime!

I know a few SVTOA people are coming from my area, and I plan on recruiting the cobra owners :rotf: :rotf:

I just bought a 10 x 10 canopy so we'll have a place to hang out at, all I need to get are some banners and photos from the various club events....can anyone help us out? and Tony has to get the DVD to Greg :thumbsup:

I don't think the family will be coming with me unless it is just my 9 year old son Drew. The older one can't miss anymore school and his last day is the 31st of May. How old is your son Ken?

I'm glad you got a canopy so we don't FRY in the sun. What events are you planning on doing?? I wish we could get a few more members to attend with us! :D

BD: Thats great....Brandon is 10....make sure you bring swimsuits! The hotel has an indoor pool and jacuzzi, and we usually do that each night. I'm going to get there as early as I can on friday, get my spot and tent set up, then browse around the vendors for a while, searching for parts for the fairlane or cougar....I'll check back at the car a few times, and Karen will probably be around the tent more than me, as parts shopping is only somewhat interesting to her for the first hour, lol....so look for my car and tent when you get there....if they do the same as years past, they group all of the R's in with the 94 pace cars. Saturday (the high traffic day) we will be manning the tent, signing up new members, and looking over the show cars when we can. Sunday we usually go to see the winners, and leave early afternoon. Let me know if youre doing the autocross or drags....I might do one or the other if time permits....

Depending on where I am located (probably Birmingham) I will start the drive on Thursday night, go to the house to pick up whomever is going and head part of the way up. I'll finish the drive on Friday morning so I should arrive by early afternoon on Friday. I am planning on leaving Sunday afternoon and driving home. If Drew doesn't want to go with me I will probably be there earlier on Friday. :D I don't think I'll be doing either the drag or Autocross as I don't want to break the ride and not have a way home. I also don't want to have to tow the car up! :D ;)

RJ, Tony, I will have to see what the family situation is going to be and IF I'm still going to be here in Birmingham, AL. Then I'll decide wether or not I'm even going to go by Asheville on my way up to Carlisle! :D ;) Not to say he isn't welcome or anything Tony! ;) ;) ;)

I made it up there on Sunday and looked and looked and looked and never saw you guys! (completely forgot I had Ken's number) Made two passes through the Ford bldg and carried out a door and a trunk lid. There were quite a few bargains on Sunday!
We'll get together next week, for sure!

mark was at the other end of the row....they had a section just for cobra R's and 94 pace cars, then the 94-03 cobras (big section) which was where mark was....he did good, as he sent over quite a few people for flyers and club info :thumbsup:

ps: I have the banner, I'll TRY to remember to bring it to detroit :D
