British Cars of New Hampshire Show of Dreams

This is the 21st year for this event that benefits the New Hampshire Food Bank and the High Hopes Foundation. I've been for the past 4 years and it's just a great show. Not huge (about 200 cars or so) but very well run and a ton of fun. I was fortunate enough to be at one of the organizational meetings and was able to get a British V8 class added to the proceedings. There were a few representative V8s in attendance last year (Healey Rick made it up for the fun) but would be great to see a real showing for the 2017 event.

Show date is Saturday, July 22nd from 10Am to 3PM. Location is 211 Derry RD (Rte 102), Hudson, NH. It's easy to get to from just about any direction. There's a raffle, a number of vendors including Sports Car Services and Abingdon Spares, tech sessions, and and auction items for sale. Sadly, I'm a vendor so I can't bring the BV8 but sure would be great to see some of you folks make it.

Registration form is attached and includes contact information. If you need more, visit [bcnh.org]

Here's the spiffy new poster for the Show of Dreams event. Size is 11" x 17" printed on 10pt stock (heavier than a poster, a bit lighter than a postcard). I'm not up on what the distribution is going to be but think they'll be for sale at the event. T-shirt art is going to look very similar.

Just had an e-mail exchange with the registrar for the SoD and she let me know that we're still in need of a few more entries into the V8 category. Come on guys, let's show her some British V8 power! Really would be great to have a full field for the event. Sign up info is in the original post.

I'm curious as to how many live close enough to attend. It's a looong way from here.

Hard to say, Carl, but Derry is only about a half hour from Boston and this is New England so you can get to almost anywhere in the region in about 3 hours. After I pressed the organizers for the V8 category, it would be great to get at least 6 cars in the slot if only so I don't look like a complete idiot.

If you only get 2, they still belong in their own class.
