    @royal

    The Carlisle Kit and Import Car show for 2013 is scheduled for May 17-19.  I am planning (penciled in) on going as is my wife, Julie.  I hope that we can get some more of the women to come to the show this coming year else, I may lose my navigator.  

    I would appreciate some early feel for how many (and especially wives/girlfriends) are going as Julie and I may have a conflict (but a TDr “feeding frenzy” could make a difference in our plans).

    Karen is a likely right seater. She’d like to meet Julie and Patti. She likes Dale’s wife too; I think they talked knitting last Pumpkin Run.

    I plan on bringing (as in driving) my TD there. Linda and I will be there. Looking forward to seeing many more TDers there this year.

    We won’t be registering the MINI at Carlisle due to Patti’s work schedule.
    She will accompany me if she has the available time, but at that time of year, her attendance will be last minute. She’ll be there if she can.

    @pmossberg

    2012 was probably the record.

    2013 we should also have Schu and Wobby

    Wobby’s been kinda mia here lately. But he’ll turn up again I’m sure.

    This looks very promising.

    I think I counted six TDs on the field briefly in 2011, including a dude
    from around Baltimore whose name I’ve forgotten (he never joined the
    board), and the clock maker guy from Delaware whose front-engine BCW had
    the plate LVLY LDY or something like that. Great car, nice guy; haven’t
    heard from him in a while. Might have been only five that year though.

    We had five cars on the field in 2012, all club members, and of course
    Paul’s car was absent–hopefully for the last year ever. (me, Roy, Bill, Dale and Wobby, in order)

    Five is a good turnout but nine or ten would really turn heads, eh Paul?
    When was the last time more than five TDrs showed up at an event?

    I’ll have mine there even if she’s not running. Plan on towing her to the motel and driving to the show. And if she’s NOT running I can always tow her into the show grounds. Right?

    Allen, I am sometimes accused of being a pessimist.  But, you win the POY award.  If she can’t be made to run in 6 months, she ain’t gonna ever run.

    Allen,

    If Roy is done beating you up … yes, you may tow your car onto the show field.

    Now…get off the computer, get the h–l back into the garage, and get back to work!

    How was that Roy? OK? 😀

    Um…planning on driving it. If the weather holds on for another week I should get the body on over the Thanksgiving holiday. Um no. 2….Garage! What Garage. Just a back yard is all I have. That’s why I’m always saying if I don’t get her done. Weather plays an important role. My target completion date is the first weekend in April. I have to unseat my friend Logan who won 1st place in kit car class with his 37 Jaguar SS-100 kit car.

    Hi folks,

    Once again, the Speedster Owners Group (SOG) has graciously extended to the
    TDReplica.com group access to their hotel. At least for now, they have
    asked us to limit our rooms to six. In order to control this, I am not publishing the hotel
    arrangement here. Please send me a private message and I will get back to you. Several of us are members of SOG and our rooms will not count towards the six. You SOG guys know who you are. If you are not sure, private message me.

    The rest of the weekend activities are open to all.

    THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SPEEDSTERS MEET SPYDERS WEEKEND AT CARLISLE
    ??? MAY 16-19, 2013

    THURSDAY 5/16:

    – Early arrivals all day.

    – Photo session in the hotel parking lot before the evening cruise.

    – Evening country cruise to the
    Caddy Shack restaurant for dinner at the Armitage Country Club. This is the
    tenth year we???re cruising to the Shack and it???s ALWAYS a fun drive. We???ll enjoy
    the same great food and friendly wait staff we???ve become accustomed to. http://www.caddyshackrestaurant.com

    – Hospitality suite at the host hotel (BYOB and
    snacks)


    FRIDAY 5/17:

    – Morning country cruise through the rolling back roads of central
    Pennsylvania.  Bring your camera; you won???t want to miss all the photo
    opportunities!  And we just might stop by the Sports Emporium for a few
    competitive hot laps on the outdoor go-kart track or the indoor slick track.
    This has proven to be a favorite in the past, especially for the ladies who may
    need to relieve some stress after listening to the guys bench racing all day
    long. http://www.carlislesportsemporium.com/

    – Then we head to the Carlisle fairgrounds where we???ll register for the
    weekend, walk the grounds, check out the swap meet and grab something to
    eat.   

    – Join SOG under their club tent, enjoying all the sights and sounds of this event. Many activities are
    happening all day long at Carlisle; check their calendar and the program in
    your goodie bag for event details of the day.

    – Photo session in the hotel parking lot before the cruise.

    – Evening cruise to the Stoney Creek
    Inn.  This location is tentative as we work on final details, watch
    for an update in the coming weeks.     

    – Then we cruise back to the hotel
    for some socializing and partying in the hospitality room (BYOB and snacks).

    SATURDAY, 5/18:

    – Our big day on the show field (aka the ???Fun??? field) at the Carlisle Import
    and Kit Nationals. The biggest event of its kind in the country! We’ll park the TDs together if we can, adjacent to the Spedster/Spyder cars.

    – Morning ???Egg Sandwiches??? reunion at the Carlisle High School Marching Band
    food booth (under the grandstands). Ask me about the sandwiches, aka “sammiches”. There are a couple great stories here. This is the only food vendor that is not a business. The cash register and order fulfillment are staffed by band members.
    The grill is manned by band parents. They work hard to raise money for their band. As the parent of a former high school band member and drum major, I know what it costs! Support these kids. They deserve it!

    – Join SOG under their club tent, enjoying all the sights and
    sounds of this event. Many activities are happening all day long at Carlisle;
    check their calendar and the program in your goodie bag for event details of
    the day.

    – When the busy day at Carlisle draws to a close, we???ll head back to the hotel,
    freshen up, don our Hawaiian shirts and meet up in the parking lot.  
     

    – Final photo session in the hotel
    parking lot before cruising to dinner.

    – Gala 10th anniversary awards dinner at the Radison Hotel
    Harrisburg for our annual travel awards festivities. Don???t forget to wear your
    Hawaiian shirt!!

    – Then we???ll head back to the hotel
    hospitality room for the ???Speedsters Meet Spyders??? annual raffle of donated
    parts, products, goodies, and memorabilia.  Followed by more socializing
    and revelry (BYOB and snacks).

    SUNDAY, 5/19:

    – Long distance folks begin to leave early, die-hards remain at the show field
    until the “Last Hurrah”

    – Morning ???Egg Sammiches??? at the Carlisle High School Marching Band food booth.

    – Activities are happening all day long at Carlisle; check their calendar for
    events of the day.

    – Drawing for the Carlisle giveaway car.

    Great.

     

    I’m planning on going out Thursday this year too. Possibly after work, to save the vacation day.

    But it would be nice to be there for the Friday cruise.

    Yeah. I’m down for Caddy Shack and all. It’s a two hour run from my house, so that means taking Thursday off–both of us. Which is why I say “I hope.”

    I will be out Friday morning. Not sure if Patti will attend. She wants to, but work requirements dictate that it would be a last minute decision. I am so looking forward to seeing you all again.
