Hotel manager Matt has extended our block and given us to June 2 for his cutoff. He also gave us the option to extend our stay at the same rate, $85. Anyone who feels like they are out because of the missed deadline on the other stuff, PM me or Jim. We have had nothing but awesome customer service from the folks at Cass, the hotel, the brewery, K-2, etc, so we will do our best to accommodate.

Also, if any of you have Growlers, be sure to bring them to Greenbrier Valley Brewing on Friday.

Growler, mine is only 32oz. Guess it will have to do.

Excitement has been building for me! Can't wait! I've talked with a few others and the feeling is the same with them too. It promises to be a fantastic gathering this year!

Still not sure if I'm going to make it, I'm in the middle of installing EPS and having a hard top painted, broken windshield, new tires and rims, and prep work for a season of autocross racing. So I have my reservations at the motel but I haven't made my reservation here. What am I going to miss if I register late, I don't really care about the train ride, might be interested in watching the dyno, i would probably be interested in eating a couple of times while I'm there, and you know I'd be really interested in cruising some of the back roads and sitting around exchanging lies and pounding down a few with you guys I saw on the application that there would be no refunds for cancellations after May 1st, but didn't see anything about late registrations. It's probably going to be at least another week or more before I know if I'm going to have a car or not

Jim is handling all the registrations, but we have discussed late sign ups and are good with it. The regalia and group rate on the train were the big things, but if there is space you can still get on the train. T-shirt have to have time to be stitched, so if you did order too late they wouldn't be ready for the meet.

These registrations have complete registration information.

The deadline for early registration has passed but we will still accept late registrations up until and during the meet. You will not be able to order regalia or reserve seats on Cass or dyno slots, but if you want standby status please let us know and we will make reasonable attempts to accommodate you. We should have little issue with add-ons for the Banquet.

Similarly, we will do what we can about late shirt and hat requests within the limitations of the vendor. We have no plans to place any late orders but as long as they let us add on we will do so.

These extras are all conditional however, so if you want to add banquet seats go ahead and pay for them. For anything else, since we cannot make any guarantees we do not want you to send money that we may have to refund. You can wait and we'll see how it goes. If it works out you can pay then.

It looks like there may be some free time to enjoy some of the local attractions and sites on Friday. Jim and I don't anticipate that everyone would want to spend the entire day at the dyno. The Greenbrier Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau will have a table and a representative at our registration on Wednesday, and leave the information until Friday. K2 offers bikes and kayaks to rent, the Greenbrier Resort is nearby and has a lot to offer, there are several caves to explore, civil war battlefield nearby, etc.
Weather has been wet this month, so hopefully the pattern will dry out by then. Weather.com has highs in the upper 70s forecast for that week.

I canceled my motel reservation last night, so I guess I'm going to be a no-show for this years rally. I talked it over with my wife and I'm going to chase a dream I've had since I was just a young pup. I have decided to pursue my SCCA Drivers License and do a little Road Racing. I'm pulled the trigger and blew all my throw away money on a Formula 500 Racecar

The numbers are in, and it looks like the meet will be well attended. Registrations are right at 50 with 80 in the dining hall for the banquet, 58 going to Cass, and 8 dyno reservations. Hotel reservations are in the mid 50's. It's shaping up to be a very good meet. We'll miss those of you who couldn't make it.

Yes Rob....we did get an early start. RVing like old folks, going to other car shows , and making the rounds to see friends. Got rain blasted coming into (nice rv bug wash) MO. We started Sunday eve, stayed just across the border in Nevada. Got up at 2am, drove to Grand Junction Co, and stayed at KOA. Got up again at 2am, drove to very nice RV place here in Saint Louis MO.
