A little behind schedule (sorry) but we are now ready to accept registrations!

[britishv8meet.org]

Same website that we've used for both Dayton and Wytheville.....but with a twist.

Be sure to check out all of the tabs on the drop-downs....the banquet menu and details on sites we will visit can be found on the "BritishV8 2020 Meet - Event Details 2020"
tab. Online Registration is also found on this tab.

Hotel information (you will go to a different website to reserve your room) can be found under the "Itinerary - Venue" tab. We have a mix of King rooms and Doubles rooms....but the king rooms are limited. (Be sure to enter the correct date range when searching availability.)

[www.marriott.com]

Many of you already know this property...it was the host hotel for both NAMGBR's MG93 and NAMGBR's MG2003 in addition to a "Six Pack" gathering of the TR6s.

To order regalia, you will go to a different website which is through our regalia provider, Wagner Signs. You will be charged separately for regalia from event registration. (Note...all purchases subject to a small processing fee that goes to the vendor and Illinois State Sales tax. Sorry.) If you wish to pick up you regalia at the meet, please click "In Store Pickup" and we will bring it to St.Louis. You can have your purchases mailed to you in advance if you wish, but there is a shipping charge.

[britishv8.itemorder.com]

Scroll through the website...we have a variety of items and colours available, including an event decal. Standard t-shirts are available in either embroidered logo or a Direct-To-Garment print.

This is going to be a great gathering.....register today!

See you in The Lou for BritishV8 2020 - Gateway to Performance!

We are only about three months away from BritishV8 2020 in St.Louis!

Have YOU sent in your registration yet?

We currently have fifteen enthusiasts on the books.

We encourage you to go to the registration website NOW and register for this event!

[britishv8meet.org]

Please remember that regalia such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, ballcaps, and more are available through a second website.

Sales have been disappointing at best...and it's the regalia sales and the auction that really keeps these events in the black and provides seed money for future events.

Please visit the website and place your order. If you will be in St.Louis for the meet, click the "In-store Pickup" button and we will bring your purchase to St.Louis for you. You can also support the event even if you are not going to be able to make it to St.Louis by ordering a t-shirt, etc, and having it mailed directly to you!

[britishv8.itemorder.com]

You have until May 13th to reserve a room at the Sheraton Westport Chalet and get our preferred rate. Don't procrastinate!

[britishv8meet.org]

Hope to see you in The Lou - Your Gateway to Performance!

Greetings!

Registrations and room reservations are slowly coming in for BritishV8 2020.

We are currently at twenty-one meet registrations (with about three full months before we will be in St.Louis). We budgeted on about 50 with hopes of getting 60 to 70.....based on attendance at previous meets.

Our room block at the Sheraton Westport Chalet has had the following pickup as of 3/12:

6/2 1 room (this is Jean and me as we are coming in a day early to prepare)
6/3 26 of 35 rooms
6/4 26 of 45 rooms
6/5 28 of 45 rooms
6/6 27 of 45 rooms
6/7 1 room
6/8 1 room

Our contract with the hotel has an attrition clause of 70%...meaning we need to book a MINIMUM of 25 of 35 rooms on Wednesday night and 32 of 45 rooms on each of the following three nights or we will get hit with some pretty severe "loss of revenue" penalties by the hotel.

We also have a "Food & Beverage" guarantee to meet (banquet and bar costs...excluding tax and gratuities).

In reviewing and comparing room lists with event registration lists, it appears that some of you may not have registered for the event yet (we've taken into consideration that some of you may be sharing a room.)

[britishv8meet.org]

I know that the Coronavirus pandemic is on the back of everybody's minds....I only hope that you have not let this create too big of a roadblock for you to join us. We need your participation!

And now is probably a good time to remind everyone to order a t-shirt, etc, even if you cannot make it to The Lou!

[britishv8.itemorder.com]

See you in The Lou in June!

Rick and Pete

UPDATE....

We are monitoring the Coronavirus situation and will be complying with any and all mandates that come in from the government.

At present, we WILL still be holding the event this June.

To date, registrations for both the event and for the hotel have been less than budgeted .

We encourage you to make these registrations and reservations sooner rather than later.

Don't miss this event........they are always FUN!

Greetings!

A couple of requests....

If you have registered for BritishV8 2020 but have not gotten your hotel room yet, please do so (or advise if you are rooming with another attendee or staying elsewhere.

If you have a hotel room at the Sheraton Westport Chalet but have NOT registered for the event, please send in your event registration!

If you have a room booked at the Sheraton Westport Chalet but did NOT book under our room block, please advise so that we can get credit for your booking under our block....this will help us meet our contractual obligations for the event with the Sheraton.

If you have not looked at the regalia website and ordered your t-shirt, etc.....please do so!

Thanks!

Greetings!

I had a good conversation with the Sheraton Westport Chalet today.

They are going to work with us in an effort to provide a great event.

While Missouri is indeed under a Shelter In Place order at present, that order will expire on May 11th. Of course, we all know that these orders can be extended if needed.

The good news from the hotel in terms of how it effects YOU as a reservation holder for a room.....the Westport has indeed changed their cancellation policy to a 24-hour advance notice....so as long as you inform them within 24 hours that you will NOT be able to keep your reservation, they will cancel your reservation without any charge to you.

The good news from the hotel in terms of how it effects the MEET and its organizers is that they will be flexible when it comes to our contractual obligations, especially regarding our attrition clause and or Food & Beverage guarantee.

We will be staying in contact with the hotel staff over the next five weeks and will keep you all in the loop of any changes that may happen.

We encourage you to register for BritishV8 2020 if you've not done so already.....and to reserve your room at the Sheraton Westport Chalet today!

So for now....."See You in the Lou for BritishV8 2020!"
