    2008 Convention update

    Confirmed registrations for the convention so far are 51, a pretty good number with still 2 months to go. We also have 27 members indicating they'll be participating in the "After the Ball" portion of the event. (make sure your hotel reservation for Santa Barbara at the Fess Parker Doubletree are made before 7/28 as it increases to a standard rate after that date).

    Also for those of you that have not registered yet, please remember the convention fee increases after July 31.
    More convention details can be found at THIS thread.

    Shaping up to be a great event!

    Bill,

    Do you have an outline of an event schedule yet? I have had notes from the Point Sur Light Station about our tour of the lighthouse. They are excited about our visit "after the ball" on tour. As in the guided tour of the Hearst Castle at San Simeon, there is walking involved. These each are multiple hour tours. Good, sturdy shoes recommended. Some uphill at Point Sur but the guide stops to talk periodically. The physically challanged need to be aware of their abilities although most will have no difficulty.

    Hi Larry,
    attached is the current list of attendees.
    95 registered attendees so far. UPDATED 9-5-08

    Jack, on the event schedule, we're running pretty close to what appears on the current registration form. (note: it was modified slightly from the original that was sent out with the newsletter) I will post a schedule with times etc. a little closer in.

    Bring your parts!

    Have had few local members ask about the possibility of including a "mini swap or trade meet" during the Saturday Concours as we did in Sonoma a few years back. I think it's a good idea, we could also post items for sale or wanted on a white board as we did at Wintertech '07. You may want to use this thread to post what you're looking for, or what you'd like to clear out.

    I tried putting correct kind of hose clamps together, sitting in my family room and gave up. Maybe somebody can give me a little Tech Session and show me how it's done.
