BlueGrass GTG -- October 11-12
I am finalizing the arrangements for the October 11-12 Get Together here in Lexington. Obviously everyone on BWOT is invited, I am also going to put up an invite on the General Events sub-forum to bring in others from the area.
IF we end up getting a large mass of folks in the first week after tonight's broadcast, I will also send out invites to the various MBCA regional groups and just make this a regional GTG and car show. WTF! If it does grow above the BWOT and locals we will move it from the house to Keeneland if possible so we can have a little carshow, cookout and enjoy the racing that will be going on that weekend.
The couple of questions that have come up on PMs that I wanted to ask.
Question 1: are spouses/SO's invited? My thought is YES but I thought I would bring the question up for a bit of democracy in this election season. Even if the answer is NO, there won't be strippers. Sorry.
Question 2: Do we want to cook out or eat at a restaurant? If we do the Keeneland thing, I would think we could do a big cookout if Keeneland gives us the Back 40. I will get James Motors to assist if possible. Alternative is one of the restaurants in town.
Think about those two questions and we will go from there. I would like to firm everything up by September 1. By then I will have the name of a hotel that will provide some discount rates to us [not much since Keeneland is in session]. That will give us six weeks.
I am going to STICKY for a few days until the plans solidify.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
