Unfortunately, Ginny & I won't be at Carlisle this year! 

We'll certainly miss joining our friends on all the shenanigans, but hopefully will be there next year.

Sorry to hear this, you and Ginny will certainly be missed~

In the busyness of running a business, it is unlikely that we will see "The  President For Life at the People's Republic of Stanistan". Boy howdy, I'll miss that guy! Hopefully the stars will all realign next year.

Thanks, Al, I miss you as well!

For reference: today, one of the rental houses (which got a new roof 18 months ago) developed a leak. Water soaked the insulation in the attic, pooled on the ceiling, came through the drywall, onto a piece of furniture, before making a nice little lake on the dining room floor. This was discovered at 2:00 PM. Not to worry, we're supposed to get 6" of snow tonight. The roofing crew (actually drywallers pressed into service) tacked a piece of Tyvek over the leak, which will do... something (make them feel better?). Spring is only 2-1/2 months away, so I'm sure we'll be spot on until then.

Also today, right hand man Brad sideswiped a car while merging on the interstate, tearing off his front fender and the entire side of the other car. We're already driving the spare truck, as the other one was totaled last year.

Good times.

Carlisle is looking "unlikely".

Large tree branch? Rogue snow fowl?

Dang. Jim and Stan you two are stalwarts for making the East Coast Rib Roast at any time. It's a long haul for all y'all and we appreciate the hell out of your company(s) when those stars do align. Carry on.

That number again, Courtyard by Marriott reservation :   717 300 7026  ask for Charity Shreffler. 

Get in on it, guys.

Thanks all who already registered and condolences to all who must, alas, bow out this year.

I want to be the first to thank Alan "Dr. Clock" Merklin for his stalwart efforts in streamlining this year's festivities. 

Reminder: this year is an a-la-carte extravaganza with two (count ‘em) optional cruise/sight-seeing tours, Thursday BBQ at the hotel, the usual full complement of showfield hyjinx and an in-house Saturday night banquet and awards ceremony.

ITINERARY:

Arrive Wednesday night to get a head start on the fun if you’d like. Intimations that Cory and Jeni are going to rebuild the Hoopty in the back lot are Fake News, probably. 

Arrive Thursday and unpack your junk, untrailer your ride and unleash your beer cooler as things get cranking in earnest with the second annual Pulled Pork/ Burger/Dog Jamboree on the beautiful Shippensberg Marriott back patio at 6 pm. BYOB or belly up to the bar in the lounge and beer up after your long and arduous trek from yonder precincts. 

On Friday enjoy a free breakfast buffet at the hotel or bug-out directly to the show field, a half hour up RT 11, for the world famous Carlisle High School Marching Band Egg Sammiches. You will not be corralled or herded. Options include a 2 ½ hour Covered Bridge Tour with lunch at the Historic Meiserville Inn and a stop at the Hunters Valley Winery

>OR<

A spirited 2 ½ hour drive to the Kings Gap State Park, ending at the Appalachian Brewing Co. in Gettysburg

before (or after!) heading up to the show field for some quality time checking out cars. 

Friday night is your choice of pizza on the patio or the Annual Restaurant Scramble for dinner. List of Health Department Approved eateries tbp.

Saturday breakfast at the hotel or head to the field at your leisure. Again, the open road beckons so those who love to drive ‘em are encouraged to run one of the pre-plotted routes from the hotel to other attractions over back roads before heading to the show. 

At some point still yet to be decided there will very likely be the First Annual Tournament de Valve Covers, a race for discerning Gentlemen, Ladies, and Others As The Case May Be. 

Also this year, along with Carlisle Management we've also established a Mandatory Drift Competition for all Intermeccanica vehicles only. THERE WILL BE NO OPT-OUT OPTION. Drivers meeting is at 9 a.m., judging beginning at 10 and lawsuits served at 11:45. 

Folks will be asked to head back to the hotel by 6 for the 7 pm buffet. There will be two main entrees—Chicken Carbonera or Lasagna—and green beans almondine, mixed vegetables and house salad along with dessert and coffee. The hotel’s cash bar will be available as always. 

After dinner we’ll turn to the annual award ceremony followed by the raffle. Awards for longest travel, general menchery and hard luck will be provided. Please bring a good thing for the raffle and remember to buy a ticket and take the ride, as the scratch raised from this refills the fund from which we pay for various expenses, including the chairs and tables under our showfield tent. 

Sunday we’ll say our goodbyes at the hotel and/or head back to the field for one last look around.

I CAN'T MAKE IT.

Pity, that. I can't imagine you wouldn't take home the prize.

As a matter of fact, I propose that you gentlemen forego the actual competition, and do the thoroughly modern thang. Just run a computer simulation and do a telephone poll of likely participants, create an algorithm, and declare a winner.

I’m going, I have my room and event ticket. I am looking forward to seeing everyone again this year. The car is ready, and I want to start packing for the trip lol. But it’s weeks away. 

I had just finished a ugly divorce shortly before my drive to Carlisle last year.  I really appreciate meeting everyone , it made me smile again and enjoy myself 

This year I will have a co-pilot 😉  She is looking forward to the event and seeing the madness 

 

 

Rotflma.  Hey does anyone have the video from last year. The one musbjim did? She would love to see it. Or any other videos that you might like to share.  It’s her first time. I want to go easy on her lol

Tab, it will be nice to see you again.  Love your car, the large Tach adds a lot to the look and the paint too.  Ray

@Tab Tanner

Hey buddy, great to hear that you've moved on to a better chapter in your life! 

I'm sure you'll have a great time at Carlisle 2020, especially since you'll be able to share the experience with your new right-seater.

Here's a video that is an overview of SOC shenanigans across the country. It should give her an idea of what the SOC is all about; cool cars, great people and good times!

If you do a search on here for “Carlisle 01” through “Carlisle 04” and my username, you’ll find some videos from 2004 - 2010 or so.

I’m not near my PC and this site does weird stuff with cut and paste on my iPad, so try doing the search - They’re all in there!

I regret to say I cannot make it this year. 

Well things just changed for me. We cancelled out client conference and it looks like I will be able to make the drive. I need to sort through some stuff at home, but hoping this works out.
