I have still been waiting for a couple responses for stuff I'm trying to plan but so far no luck. So without further ado here is what I have for the 2021 West Coast Cruise:
Because of the uncertainty of things I will limit the planning of this event, at this time, to the blocking of rooms at the hotel and organizing a drive with a lunch stop at an outdoor venue that serves food or has food within walking distance.
SLO still has limited capacity at its local restaurants and there are no large groups being allowed yet. The hotel is serving breakfast in the morning but you have to eat outside and there is still a "Manager's Reception", ie free drinks in the evenings from 5:00-7:00 (IIRC).
We won't have the use of the breakfast room for our Saturday night dinner/raffle but the hotel does serve bbq food on the patio every night so we could still get food from the hotel and eat outside in our small groups, much like we do on Friday evening. Or you can walk to one of several local establishments for dinner Friday and Saturday night then rejoin the group on the patio. We will still have the opportunity to partake of adult beverages and catch up with each other.
At this time I have secured 20 rooms at the rate of $229.00 per night for the weekend of June 11th-13th. Check in on the 11th and check out on the morning of the 13th. In the past if you've wanted to check out on the Monday following the event they will give you special pricing.
Saturday morning at 9:00 am we will meet at the Veterans' Hall for the driver's meeting and we'll get the driving started.

Call the hotel directly and reference the Speedster Owners.
At this point I don't see the need to spend time designing t-shirts or any other labor or time intensive organizing in case we have to cancel the event.
Bottom line, we might all still be able to get together, talk, drink, drive, and enjoy each other's company but it'll be a bit more subdued.
