Watkins Glen 2016 Sept 8-9-10th save the date

Post by dbrick » Sat Jun 04, 2016 9:15 pm

Posting this for new owners and regulars alike, and I'll be harassing anyone within 300 miles on an individual basis. :D

Elaine Halstead will be running the Roadster events this year after a few years off, so I'm sure she will get details up here soon.

My house is avail for repairs and general loitering and driving Go-karts on the lawn before and during the weekend.

I'm planning on going on the Knapp Valley tour, they are alot of fun, we can stack it full of Datsuns. Register early if you want to go, http://grandprixfestival.com/roadster.html. Same for hotels/accommodations. They fill up fast. If anyone needs info on the area, where to stay etc, please contact me, glad to help.

Hopefully will see you there!

Some more details...

Roadster dinner will be at the Watkins Glen Community Center on Saturday @ 4pm. Chef Sherry is working up the menu. All are welcome. Bring Family and friends...we will need a headcount for food prep. I will start a new thread when the time comes and send emails to finalize.

We are working on a location of a "meet and greet" on Thursday night - likely somewhere in Watkins Glen. TBD

Will likely have the show and shine later in the Day on Saturday. I always have trouble getting there at 8 am. Those who come every.year know why...her name begins with a D.
It will Likely be at 11:30 am and at a location where people can bring a lunch, or fire up some charcoal grills.

Lastly, commemorative T shirts will be available as always. I should have some sample designs ready in the next few weeks.

I hope to see you all there again this year!

Someone, (maybe Ed?) had found a place on Airbnb.com for the show. I never thought to try it. If you're looking for a place, it might be a great option.

Carl, Jackson and myself are registered for the Knapp Valley Roadster tour.

Dinner Menu is

Beef Brisket
Eggplant Parmesan 
Lasagna
Roasted potatoes

Special thanks again to Chef Sherry for a great menu.

Dinner is $15 per person. 4pm to 8 pm

Dinner will be at the Watkins Glen community center...err Skating Rink...same as the last few years.

BYOB. (you can bring more than one)


Location of Show-n-Shine still being worked out but will be at 11 AM on Sat.

Amazingjoe plotted a fun run route after the show and shine and before dinner.  Some of you will do some time at the track.  Either way...it's a great day to enjoy our love of cars.

We will have a package for you to pick up at the meet and greet Thursday night at Rooster Fish downtown Watkins Glen.  There is BBQ and other food choices available.

Park off street in one of the three town parking lots.

Bring raffle items to dinner as usual.  Anything that you want to raffle off as the raffle tickets are free...it's more for the fun of it and sharing items (like roadster parts) that you don't need...

There are two t-shirt designs. Pics of shirts are below


t-shirts are $15 ea and available in two designs and three colors. I can get more colors if people feel strongly about colors.

Foe people not attending, if you want a shirt, just PM or email me with size, color and design. The more shirt orders we get, the lower the price will be. $15 is just a conservative estimate...this is all not for profit.
