Hi Joe:

Pleased to see that you are involved in the organization of this year's event. Rita and I are coming down on Thursday as usual and have seen the schedule. We will be at "Heavily Brewing Event on Thursday. We are staying at Seneca Lodge as usual.

Although I have seen something about T shirts this year and that you may be co-coordinating all of that. I would like one T shirt , medium and one extra large if possible. There are at least 2 other cars driving down with us. Should I find out their T-shirt wishes and advise you?? Sorry to be so late with all this.

take care

Fred & Rita Davidson

Hi Fred, It's Dave Brisco

We ordered some extra shirts in large and x large, no extras in Medium, but people change their minds , or gain weight. Bringing some from previous years too.

See ya there

Mike Jennings (event founder) sent me a pic from the first gathering along with a copy of the flyer.

Fred, do you want me to add two for dinner?

Hi guys,

I will be at the Glen this year racing my Alfa Romeo . I am in the same group as Mike Unger, but in a different class ( slower). Only room in the trailer for one car so the Roadster has to stay home. If your in the paddock please stop by. My trailer is red and has a very big " Captain Lawrence Brewing " logo on the side and a " CLB " flag flying above. There will be plenty of beer in the cooler.

Dave , I will meet up with you to provide one of the prizes.

Hey Michael do you know Mike Jennings from Newmarket?
He just texted me last night that he will be attending the WG event , If you want i'll send him your contact info as there might be an opportunity for you to dive down with him.
Mike's been a Datsun specialist for over 30 years I think so he should know a thing or two
Jacques, thanks for the info. I hope to meet him there. I'm sure that he'll have some invaluable insights.

Does anyone know of good spot around Watkins Glen to park my truck and car trailer for the day?

I will be bringing my 1500 from southern Ontario for my first trip to the Glen.

There's a big Walmart right in town on Rt 414 that might work. Watkins Glen state park Camp ground but likely they will want you to pay. The community center also has a large parking lot.

Park it at Daves house or our house. Looking forward to seeing another 1500!
I remember when no one wanted the 1500s......

I am definitely coming this year. Hopefully I will make it Thursday evening. I don't think my 2000 is up for the trip so I will likely be driving my 2010 Miata. Really looking forward to it. I don't care very much about racing, I just love to see the roadsters and all the other vintage cars up close.

My house would be easy. Big loop driveway and paved road all the way down.
5509 Peach Orchard Point Hector Ny 14841. We would have
3 1500's in the same place...gotta be a record.
