Mark your calendar and start making plans now for Carlisle 2020.  I've just signed a Speedster Owners room contract,  this wlll be our second year staying at Courtyard by Marriot in Shippensburg PA.  The Thursday night BBQ Buffet was enjoyed by everyone,  so we'll be doing this again.  I'll be posting the hotel room reservation information soon with more info to come from both Ed and myself  ~

Thanks for confirming the dates for Carlisle in 2020, Alan.  Gonna be a tough assignment to match the great time we had for Carlisle 2019 but I have no doubt that it will be sensational.

 Carlisle has been a major highlight of my year for 13 years now.  After  thirteen 2,500 mile round trips from Hot Springs for 2020, Alice and I will fly to Harrisburg and rent a car to participate next year.  I have always said that it's really about the great folks we visit with there annually and that part will continue for 2020.  The iron butt has worn plumb out after over 56,000 miles in the Speedster, and at age 81 at the 2020 Carlisle event who can blame me?  Can't wait to see everyone there!

Gee......  I thought it was because you look like @Paul Mossberg’s brother.    

Wow @Lane Anderson. You must be getting younger. You used to be "dad."

Or you're not looking so good, perhaps?

Is this a Speedster only Event?

Speedsters Spyders and some MGTD replicas too ~

And some rare Roaster Reps too.  

A quick note to thank the Merklinator et al for putting this fantastic event together. We'll book our room tomorrow. Not sure who else is helping but I'm guessing " New Spyder Ericson " and the " Coupe Laner "...

Always a good job guys. Ya'll learned well from the hard working Bruce.

I have tried multiple times to call the number Alan posted above and keep getting voice mail for someone called Bill Walsh.  Is that really the number to reach Charity?

It seems like this thread might be better located under the Events section.

I got that too, Michael but left voice mail of my intentions and next time I checked my email I found I was automatically booked for those three nights on the cc I used last year. Decent automation for sure but when I checked the reservation confirmation there is a feature where I was able to modify it to include the Wednesday night also but at a much higher rate so I declined and will call and confirm next week to see if the SOC rate will indeed be applicable to Wednesday night too.  I had a  phone call with Walsh he was also not able to confirm a ground floor room for us.

You can try this... email 

reservations@res-marriott.com

And specify Shippenburgh and her name Charity Shreffler and your golden. 

This is what I did with my request for the room and bed # etc. 

Got my reservation confirmation by email the next day...

Piece of Cake, eZe peeZey

I hear we're going to watch Alan Merklin try to grab a greased pig Wednesday night. Then we're gonna have a square dance, called by Lane Anderson "Annoying Radio Guy". Maybe a card trick or three from Ed Ericcson. Jack and Maddie are going to do the dueling banjo routine.

Max is going to do a live reading of all three books, Cory/Jeni are going to disassemble then re-assemble their entire car. Chris is going to vape his face off. Karen will sip something good. Chuck will consume an entire bottle of whiskey and repeat himself. The Stroud's will discuss their latest touring/trailering adventures. Frazoo is going to shoot off rockets. Mossberg is gonna talk about the latest 718 Boxster automatic accessories. The Finch will share the latest on goat-raising in America. Hoss will most definitely wear his big hat. 

Lenny, Ron, Michelle and Carey will hang back quietly and possibly smoke cigars.

Stan and Al will give a rousing discussion on gear and compression ratios, and their effect on significant others and relationships. 

I will just "SHUT UP" LOL.

It'll be a real HOOT!

And Mr. Piperato, who also has some rather uniquely interesting (and some say downright disturbing) opinions on these subjects, will be in there as deep and yelling as loud as the rest of us!   It will be an event not to be missed...

WOW, that was easy!   I called and got her voice mail, so I left my name and dates.  A short while later I get an email confirming the reservation.  Done!

I plan for a Wednesday arrival again.  See y'all there!

Yup I streamlined everything for the hotel with more to come in the next few days ~
