Carlisle, guys!

I know most you you frequent the Speedster Owners Group sites but just in case: Hotel reservations for Speedsters Meet Spyders 2020 and show field registration are still open!

Reminder on the hotel, if you want to stay with us:

Speedster Owners Group has 40 rooms per night for: Thursday May 14, Friday May 15 and Saturday May 16th. You may also elect to arrive one day early Wednesday May 13th as some of the regulars do. This is a casual social day with no scheduled activities.
The room rate is $132.00 per night plus applicable taxes. You are encouraged to book your asap as there are a number of area events taking place the same weekend. Area hotels sell out quickly.

To register for the show field (you can bring any car and park with us though VWs and air-cooled Porsches, MGTD replicas, real MGs and customs are especially encouraged). Here’s the website. https://www.carlisleevents.com/events/events-detail/index?id=import+and+performance+nationals
This [https://store.carlisleevents.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=2020%2D0395]is the non-judged showfield package most of us get. You get a windshield sticker that lets you drive through the gate every day. At the drop-down menu where it says “club” please select “SPEEDSTER OWNERS”. That puts you with us and makes the club bigger and stronger, which gets us stuff like a big free tent to keep our heads cool in the shade (or, ahem, “dry”).

==

Aside from the many entertaining activities on the showfield itself—which include auto-crossing and a "low car limbo" which Spyders tend to win when entered, I will be supplying two self-guided twisty-road/scenic overlook/winery/covered bridge/pub/lunch tours for our members to drive solo or in groups at their own leisure. Both are about 100 miles and will take 2-3 hours of drive time on nice roads.

Hope to see you all there!

Most excellent. Hoping for a big Spyder turnout this year. Trying to decide now if I want to try to get mine in a display building.

I wouldn't recommend it. You have too much to do for the rest of us shleppers. We should have Lenny, me, you, Chris, Phil, and of course BA Ron. Maybe more, who knows?

Think I'll wait until I get it on the road to decide. I plan to drive the "spirited cruise" routes before making final maps and directions for the group.
