Carlisle 2019

Ok---Marriott Courtyard room is booked.  Really looking forward to this year's event and excited about the new venue.  I have to change the oil, gas up the Speedster and head North to Yankeeland.  Great job, Alan--your effort and expert organizing skills are most appreciated!  Getting in Thursday afternoon.  I am planning to skip the Christiansburg overnight this trip and do the Knoxville TN to Shippensburg leg in one day.

I booked our rooms today.  When I called the hotel and was transferred to registration, I was told by the young lady that all the Speedster Owners rooms had been taken. 

I then registered via the website, with no problem.  I don't know where she got her information, or where she was located, but I can guess.  The only issue with that is that the website does not allow you to state 'Speedster Owners' as your group.

So, if you call the hotel, be sure to talk to someone who knows what the H is going on.

 

 I will resolve this glitch by tomorrow end of business day but for now ..

PLEASE  Call The Hotel Direct    717 477 0680

Do Not use their 800 number or Web Site Reservations. 

This is the only way for me to a have a weekly running room count and to have a head count for the Thursday BBQ Buffet.

Reservations:  Call Hotel direct   717 477 0680       Be sure to mention Speedster Owners Group.

Hey Alan, I called the hotel directly and they sent me to the “Reservation Line”.  He got the right rate, but can you please make sure we are on the list?

Alan is spectacular in everything he does!  Who else can build a Speedster in under 1/2 hour  from shortening the VW pan  to waxing his fabulous paint finishes plus getting it sold and depositing his money into the bank for the car?  Sometimes even faster if he doesn't have to build the engine too!

Alan will get back to us tomorrow but what I learned is exactly what Alan is telling us--- that if the hotel is busy they will transfer you to some distant reservations site and this place is unaware of our deal with the Marriott where we will be staying.  You must speak with the hotel property directly to reach someone who knows our $129 rate and that the Speedster group is who we are with.  

Thank you, Alan!

 

I have fixed the Hotel reservation issue. When you call the Hotel, 717 477 0680 ASK for the Hotel's Front Desk and make the reservation at the property level .  ( Per Charity Shreffler ) Be sure to mention the Speedster Owner's Group !   

Do Not use their 800 number , allow them to transfer you or , reserve on their Web Site

GERD the required Carlisle attire includes a full dry suit. You have a dry suit, correct? Wear that as your top layer with at least 50 lbs of weight. Don't ask questions just do it.

Make sure your helmet is rated to at least 60 fathoms. 

Beneath it either an SOC T shirt or a correct Spooner Hawaiian Porsche/VW shirt. Pants optional.

Most members forego supplemental oxygen but nobody will judge you if you require it.

Drugs are bad and they don't "make you cool" so please leave the cocaine and heroin at home.*

As an honored West Coast guest, you will be required to bring enough expensive Scotch to make Lane Anderson break out in song and forget what month it is. Two shots should cover it. Cory Drake, East Coast Bruce and Danny P will relieve you of any surplus Scotch so you won't have to place it in checked bags for your return trip. You're welcome.

*Supplying a "bump" to your baggage handler is considered polite here, but be discrete.
