Ok just booked a room.


What do you guys think about me maybe bringing our 24 foot travel trailer down this time for a central party station? I think Laura has out grown the "Tequila kit" briefcase. And my wing was pretty overloaded with booze last year...

There are never any cars down near the end of the lot, and that gets all the noise away from the Hotel for less complaints.

I think as long as I'm not sleeping in it and renting a room the hotel won't have an issue. They have been VERY accomodating to our "luggage luge" and muffin wars and late night madness. I think I will call and ask a manager.

Most years, there is a truck/trailer with a project 928 in tow parked over there anyway......

There is a saying. "It is better to beg forgiveness after, than to ask permission before."

Only if there is a spinning Disco ball inside. I think this is a great idea. Should charge a cover fee to help with the clean up though.

I'll be passing through DFW later in the day. I think Chuck and I may run down together.

Well, if I hook up the Sharktuner and take out a bunch of fuel and timing, then lower the rev limit, I should be able to go that slow. I think Kohler will be joining us as well, so it may be midnight before we roll into town.

I think the trailer is a great idea Mike. We could rent or borrow a margarita machine 8>)

We are going to rent, borrow or beg a screen for the live music performance. The white sheet did not cut it.

Malcolm,
Get a flight to DFW or Love Field and we will look after you. I can find you a car to drive. Bilal may come as well so join the party.

Anyone know where I can find a good 928 UBER mechanic to fix a couple of my cars 8>)

Roger

I would bet that the side of the margarita trailer could be adapted for just such an endeavor. This could truly be an epic event
