    Cool 2019 Santa Fe Convention

    At our meeting in Waynesville, NC, Bill Johnson announced that the 2019 Convention would be held in Santa Fe, NM, in May during the weekend prior to Memorial Day. Bill mentioned the convention hotel but that they were not yet ready to take reservations for the dates. Do we know yet whether reservations are being accepted?

    Yes, Reservations are being accepted. Contact person is Ashley Garcia. Direct line is (505) 954 - 9615. This is group sales. Any word on After-the-Ball?

    you can try central reservations for the hotel, google it. The two extra nights will cost almost as much as the four group rate, at least mine do.

    Had a conversation with Ashley Garcia this morning. I suggest you leave a voicemail for her. She will eventually return the call. Calling general reservation number gets you in a push button loop with the final button telling you to make reservations on line.

    Re: 2019 Santa Fe Convention

    Hello All,

    I really want to bring the car to this convention. I grew up in Southern Colorado. Is anyone in the Pacific Northwest hiring a transport to take their car. Maybe we can combine and save some dollars.

    Let me know

    Aww, Jerry, I was really excited about this until I read your third sentence. I first thought you were driving it and thought I would volunteer myself to assist. Buzzkill!

    Alas, my car hasn't progressed a lick since you saw it last fall (wrenching on my flying antique has sucked up all available time). I'm still strongly considering making the convention, though. Have some scheduling to sort out first.

    Frank ,
    I might consider a drive knowing I have a co pilot. I will reach out once I get home from China.

    Perhaps our site manager could combine this topic with that posted by President Villers that follows.

    Most of this topic is now outdated as Cheri and Bill have now presented the program, available by the home page. Yhanks,

    The convention art has now been posted to the convention web page. It is traditional that the host's car is in the convention art, with two hosts this year, the dash is Don Freese's car and Bill Johnson's Willys is in the rear view mirror (Bill sold his 190SL a couple of years ago). Very cool.

    Good looking art but having a discordance. The car is white, the left windshield post should be white too!
    But art is having all rights!
