    Dear Brad and Pam and the many others who made this convention 'click': thanks so much! Cyndy and I had an absolutely marvelous time. Fantastic.

    We made it home without problems ... except for the rain. wow, at times torrential. Quite the test for my new sealing job (or rather lack thereof) and we had to resort to the use of bubble gum as per picture below.

    Here are a few of the less 'conventional' pics, quite a few more on my Facebook page as per link: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...9&l=6496a1f458

    The Pippin Hill website has a blog, and included pictures of us and our cars (although the name of our club is incorrect). You can find the blog and photos at: http://www.pippinhillfarm.com/blog/

    Dave, it was nice travelling with you and your dad, a nice man. And, thanks for lending me that wonderful ride, "Tux." A fine machine if I ever drove one. While everyone was suffering in their rolling steam baths trying to clear windows and keep from getting wet, my bride and I were travelling in vintage air conditioned, smooth, elegant comfort, thanks to you.

    Strawberry looked great, glad she came in number two with the highest silver award achieved for the show. Dirk's #1, gold, BOS was a true looker in a most unusual, yet data card compliant color combination. Congratulations Dave Polny on two well executed cars.

    Brad and Pam, thanks for your efforts at organizing a Virginia style convention. Fun to be on the rolling, fine roads of VA exploring the land and history you call home.

    Sorry for my lack of pictures this trip. On day one of touring, we forgot the camera and on day two the battery died. But, we did have it for the SOUTHERN after the ball tour. A small, but fun group, Puryears, Hays and us visiting the D-day memorial, taking a wonderful cruise on the Blue Ridge Parkway and enjoying an evening of SMOKEHOUSE pulled pork sandwiches and trimmings and bluegrass music in Galax, VA. Then we set out alone on the Blue Ridge again for a night at the Hotel Roanoke and to return Tux and spend the evening with its rightful owner and wonderful family. BTW, the Hotel Roanoke and adjacent downtown area would also have made for a great convention spot.

    And, thanks to all the great members of this club who make these conventions a pleasurable annual gathering.

    Brad & Pam,
    Thanks once again for orchestrating an outstanding convention!
    Accommodations, drives, site-seeing and dining were all top notch efforts.
    Great to catch up with all of the regulars, along with meeting a good number of first time convention attendees. Thanks to all that made the effort to attend.

    Bill & Linda
