I feel bad that I didn't get to say goodbye to everyone. Terry and I rushed to get in the hot tub before it closed and I thought everyone would still be around when we got out.
 
I had a great time, sunburn and all. Thank you everyone that put it all together, you did a great job. Wish I could stick around tomorrow but the autocross registration is at 8:00 and it is a 3 hour drive.
 
Everyone have a safe trip home and I look forward to the next one.

Well, it's far to early for anything like "things I learned at the gathering" or such, but I'll let everyone know we made it home safely and with no issues. 
Thanks everyone for making it such a great time, and I know I'll be "quoting" the event for some time to come!!
 
BTW, I have 240 pictures and videos to share.  I'll try to put some of the better ones on here and get them all to Mike asap!

Hi everybody! We arrived about 6:30 pm. We ran into some rain showers so we stopped for early dinner. We had an absolutely wonderful weekend with all of you. Thanks to all who attended and who supported the outing. Special thanks to Bob and Pat  for the work they put into planning the event. A big thanks to Tux for the games and prizes. Any one who has pictures to put on the disk please PM me if you need an address. We look forward to the next get- together coming in the fall, so mark your calanders for October. The dates will come later.
 
Mike
 
P.S. Scott probably won't remember it in the morning and Marshall has it all written down. Ya all know what I mean?

The Steinke's made it home about 8:45pm after a stop at the Indiana "Live" Casino with Tux & Lora near Shelbyville, In. Didn't win anything (even after borrowing $ from Butch), not even enough to buy him a new Vette. Then I had to be nice to him so he would pay for my supper at Cracker Barrel.
Had a really great time with some really great people and can't wait to do it again. Special thanks to Bob and Pat for all their hard work and to Mike and Terry for making sure that we were where we were supposed to be, when we were supposed to be there. Miss all of you already.   B & J

I got home about 8:15 and died on the couch. Almost 3 hours to Rantoul and then 3 1/2 home plus the racing, I was pretty much dead when I got home. But she made it in one piece and is brand new again.. only 51 miles on her :) I will tell everyone about the autocross in another thread.

Sorry again about not saying goodbye, I really thought you all would still be around when we got out. I did wave goodbye when I was leaving at 6:00am.

Had a great time, look forward to the next one.

Well I finally removed the old camera program from my desktop and replaced it with the new software. Those of you who know me know that I am definately not camera friendly. (I should be made to wear a sticker proclaiming to shoot pictures with caution.) Anyway while we were at Kokomo My borrowed camera failed. (Even with a good licking from Butch!)

Soooo.... I went to Mr. Sam's place and bought a new camera. Most of the pics came out great! However there were a few friendly reminders of who shot the pics included. I left them in the slideshow for the fun of it. (See if you can find them....)

No mater whut we had us a real gud timey an I am sure when us folk stuck here in the middle of the states git ta-gedder at NCM hit will be a high ol timey again.

Enjoy the Slideshow!

                                                                                   Y'all Soon... Tux...
