Autumn and I got cheese and salsa!
We can bring flour tortillas and cookies.
This seems awesome. I saw the last one was in Texas, I wish this one was as well. VA is about 2K miles from me. I don't think my gimpy beast would make it that far. lol
There is a Texas meet happening this year some time.
There is also a west coast meet over Memorial Day. If you are 2k miles from VA my poor math would put you a hole lot closer to that gathering. Info is in the information section.
Thanks laserjock! I'll look into both of them. I'm in Southern Arizona near the border. Pretty much everything else would be closer to me then Virginia

Just a reminder, T-shirt orders are due by JUNE 4. I think that’s a week from tomorrow.
Not complaining about the shirts but is there an option to get one with a pocket. Works good for a cell phone. The web site didn't show one. XL size. Not a big deal just asking.
I don’t know but you are right. A shirt pocket would be handy. You know... like a shirt pocket....
I’m on travel right now. I’ll have to see when I get home tonight. I suspect that it’s too late but I’ll see what I can do and let you know.
Well I finally ordered ours today. Now if the truck will quit breaking....
Really don't want to get to show n shine with the wifes jeep compass lol!
Hey, I went to my first rally in my Toyata RAV 4. No shame there. Felt a little inadequate following the line of trucks out of the campground though.
Update on t-shirts-- Unfortunately I cannot alter the options now without killing the entire order so while it is a terrific idea to have a shirt pocket (they are handy...) we will have to leave that up as a suggestion to the next host or whoever is in charge of t-shirts. Sorry about that.
In other news, look for a schedule real soon. Rob and I are nailing down the last couple items which have to be scheduled and the rest will then fall into place. Stay tuned. Did I mention that we are only a little over a month away??
Fanny pack for you

GRATUITOUS REMINDER: T-shirt orders close on MONDAY JUNE 4!! If you are interested that will be the deadline.
Events Schedule time!
Got the last "scheduled" event dealt with today so I think we are ready to release the schedule. Before I put this up there, I want everyone to understand that there is no obligation to do any of these activities if you don't want to. It's your vacation time so feel free to pick and choose if something doesn't sound like fun or you have something else in mind. We are just here to facilitate.
Saturday- Early arrivals, no events. I will be there on Saturday to meet people as they come in unless we are our usual late selves. No scheduled events.
Sunday- More arrivals, no events scheduled.
Monday - Tube slides late morning.
Tuesday- Show and shine in the afternoon Taco Tuesday at dinner time
Wednesday- Free play. There are lots of things to do and we will have a welcome packet for you with info. There are caverns and a civil war museum. Many other things in the area to check out and chill.
Thursday- Belmont Farms Distillery tour is at 11 am. We will need to be on the road around 9 am. It's a bit of a hike. Belmont Farms produces Tim Smith's Climax Moonshine of Discovery Channel's "Moonshiners" fame. Distillery tour is $5 which includes a tasting. You can do additional tastings for additional cost. Tour takes about an hour. The farm has a large pavilion on site we can use and do a brown bag lunch. So if you want to, toss a sandwich and a drink in the cooler and we can eat lunch on site. Otherwise, we will be close to Culpeper, VA where I'm sure there are restaurants. We will probably also be passing through Luray on the way back. There are family friendly things to do there besides the caverns and of course you can stop by Cooter's Place and take a picture with the General.
Friday- Test and Tune at Eastside Speedway. Track opens at 5 pm I think. I talked to the track and they are more than happy to have us down for test and tune and will let us run all together. I think the cost is $20 per vehicle/driver and $10 per spectator. I still have a standing question with them on helmets. The person I talked to said yes. The web page says not for street class. If you want to partake in some friendly OB on OB racing action I would try to bring a helmet just in case. If memory serves it's about a 45 min drive to the track.
Saturday- Departures and Truck and Tractor pull Saturday night for those not leaving until Sunday and wanting to partake. It's pretty close by. I'll make sure that info ends up in the packet.
Sunday- Final departures
Ice cream social- We are planning to do this again this year because who doesn't like ice cream?? That is floating around a bit at the moment and may be a game time decision. I'll supply the basics (ice cream and bowls). If folks would like to bring random toppings and such or if you want to bring an exotic flavor, be my guest. It will be informal but open to all.
Breakfast for dinner- This was an alternate idea to taco Tuesday that we kicked around. If there is enough interest, we can formalize it. If not, at some point I'll be cooking up a bunch of breakfast food and folks can feel free to join in and throw something in the pot.
Camp fire- In general I plan on having a camp fire every evening for folks to congregate. Everyone is welcome.
Caverns- If there is enough interest in a caverns trip say sometime Wednesday, most of the places do group rates so we can save a few bucks. They also usually require advance notice so we would have to figure that out. I know that's not everyone's thing *cough* Rob *cough* but it is a possible option.
Hopefully that is not too busy of a schedule. We tried to make sure there was plenty of down time to relax and hang out.
Man you guys got this thing setup real well, wish I could get away from the shop to come up, thank you Mike and Rob for the work y’all have put in for organizing this, I look forward to someday making it up to the east coast to join one of the rally’s
