My plan has been to coordinate the 2020 West Coast Cruise for the weekend of June 12th-14th. This is due to a number of factors including personal availability etc.

As noted by others there are issues with hotel accommodations that weekend in SLO because of CAL Poly's Graduation. Apparently no one can properly function during this time period. I have been in contact with a number of other hotels including a sister hotel to Quality Suites. That hotel finally contacted me today and said they don't offer group rates or even accept room blocks because the hotel fills up any way. It's too bad because the hotel is identical in looks, parking, amenities, etc.

I will continue to try but at some point I will either be successful or accept defeat and we're on for June 5th-7th. Not my first choice because some of our event's actual sponsors may not be available. I have several calls out to other hotels and I'm awaiting their response.

I did notice that Memorial Day weekend is NOT the last weekend in May so that MIGHT be a possibility. I will continue to work on this and will let everyone know ASAP.

If you're not living life on the edge, you're taking up too much space!

If you get a chance to see the Nethercutt museum don't pass it up. It's full of high class, rare and beautiful cars. There restoration shop is right up there with Harrah's when they were putting out Pebble Beach quality cars. The Nethercutt Museum is always a contender at any major show. They also have a huge collection of auto accessaries and music machines. Also one of the largest pipe organs anywhere. It's really worth a trip to Sylmar.

Hotel reservations have finally been made. As much as I tried to secure accommodations the week of June 12th-14th, 2020 there was just no room at the inn. Apparently Cal Poly Graduation rules the roost in SLO. The coastal hotels weren't any better.

Contact the reservation desk and tell them you're booking a room under the SOC Event June 5th-7th, 2020. Room prices are $235.00 per night plus taxes etc for a single king bed and $255.00 per night plus taxes for 2 double beds.

As usual there will be a manager's reception each evening and our dinner/raffle will be on Saturday night in the breakfast room. I will post more information later regarding lunch and dinner costs as well as any necessary information regarding t-shirts etc.

After you make your reservation PM me and let me know you're coming and home many total in your group.

Thank you for "bumping" this.  It completely fell off my radar.  That said, I just called and made reservations.  My wife said she'd like to join me with our 5 y/o son this year.

I had a great time at my first event last year.  Looking forward to this year's.  Hoping it won't be 108-100 degrees going back home.

 

I also want to add, in addition to all the many great things, the dinner last year was awesome!

@Tom Murtaugh

Looks like I can make it.  I'm sure the coupe will be ready for its first long road trip.  I'd love to hook up with the Nor-Cal group if they are  planning to caravan down the coast if it works out with the schedule.  I'm figuring 3 days down the coast from Oregon, and a flying 2 day return trip.  I'll PM Robert when I get my reservations made.  Looks like just me for now, but wife or one of the daughters may join. Time will tell on that aspect.

In honor of El Guapo I'e been wearing my BIrdwell jacket and listening to nothing but Los Straightjackets for days.
