I just received a call from Bob Hamilton, Red70-oneconv. His mother has become very ill and is not expected to be around much longer. They are on their way to Colorado Springs at this time, and will miss the gathering. Bob asked that I relay this message. "He is sorry they can't be with us, they love us, miss us, and hope we can all be together soon."
Well Bob and Pat, " We love you too, we will miss you, and we know that we will all be together again soon."
Please keep them in your prayers, "T"

The countdown has begun Clap.It looks like you all may be experiencing some rain coming in tomorrow, but the rest of the weekend weather looks  good. I just talked to a very nice lady at the hotel and she said hose and bucket will be waiting.
You don't know how much I have been looking forward to seeing you all. And as Herr's said, "please drive carefully." I will see you all sometime this weekend. Not gonna say when Mr.Tux...........Wink

Well, after many phone calls and much driving we did find a water-pump for Dave's car. We got it to my shop and found it was the upper radiator hose leaking. So, after many calls and much driving we did find the upper & lower hose. Got him back on the road around 3:00.

Patty and I thank all of the gang for making this another great gathering. We already miss all of you and are looking forward to being together again soon.

Those of you who couldn't make it you were greatly missed. Cry But stay tuned as the next one will soon be in the planning.Clap
Much love, Terry & Patty  Hug

Actually, it was 3:45 pm by the time Terry checked the system and released me. The Vette ran flawlessly all the way home. Pulled into the driveway at 11:30 pm, which wasn't bad considering a half hour wait at the Canada border.
Everyone have a great time.
I want give Terry and Patty a special thank you for inviting me crash at their lovely home Thursday night.
And a big thank you to Dean and his wife for getting all the great prizes.
Tux did the nice job too, as always.
Hope to see you all soon.
Pictures and video to follow later.

As a newbe to the group we had a great time. Terry & patty did a great job putting this all togeather, the dune buggy ride was great. Glad to here that Dave made it back home. ClapClapClap  
We stoped off at South Haven for lunch and was home by 3:30.
It was nice to make new friends and yes we can't wait to do it again. Thumbs Up

Well Nadine & I had a great time, great bunch of people, glad to call you all my friends. Thanks a bunch to Terry & Patti, Dean and Tux also for all the work everyone did.

We had a good ride down to Columbus on Sunday. The ride home to NJ on Monday was a nightmare! Heavy downpour the whole trip plus traffic. It took us 12 hours to get home, it's normally an 8 hour trip. It's going to take me a week to clean the car.
But it was worth it, hope to see you guys again soon.
Dave
