Me Likey the shirt and graphics. I will have to bow out of the Saturday dinner though, but will see you for the run on Sunday...That is if I can get my car fixed in time. Currently at Auguste's for diagnostic and possible repairs.

They are actually a bit darker and we ended up dong the print in grey. But I'm sure they are going to look great.

Adam,
Thank you again for all your hard work and efforts in organizing this event.
Although last year I did enjoy the event and co piloting in your shark for the cruise, since my shark was on life support in your garage.
This year with great progress...along with other additional work added to the project (suspension, powder coatings,and the list goes on and on....
my shark will not be ready to drive ...BUT my wife and I will be joining everyone for the drive this year with my other Porsche that I added to the stable.
Looking forward to seeing everyone from last year and all the new shark enthusiast as well!
Looking forward to a great event!

Cheers
Daniel K

Update

I will be meeting with the hotel tomorrow to discuss options they have for dinner, parking etc. If anyone has a preference for the dinner location feel free to post.

Options are:
1: Hotel (details tbd) - ?
2: Tuckers Market Place - $
3: Jack Astors - $$
4: The Keg Steakhouse - $$$

For Sunday I have tentatively booked a private room at the hotel for the Breakfast Buffet at 8 am. If you plan on arriving later just for the cruise please let me know. I will confirm the cost with the hotel tomorrow.

I'm still trying to find a spot for lunch on Sunday. I'm thinking something simple, preferably roadside with ample parking.

The cruise route is just being finalized as well. Stay tuned.

For lunch on Sunday I'm thinking we can just order a few Pizza's during the tech session.

Adam

I think Tucker's Market place or hotel is good for Saturday dinner.
Your idea of pizza during the tech session will be good idea.
Your efforts are appreciated!
The weather for this weekend looks good, lots of sun and no rain or clouds.

It was a great day. It was nice to see some familiar faces and wonderful to see the new ones.

Thanks Adam for organizing this event, from the hotel to the route.



Hope the engine install went well.

Ps- my boys loved their shirts and have asked me if they can wear them to school.

No engine install. We were missing the proper washers for the rear bolt on the upper controls arms. But we did get the LH harness through the fire wall. And after a long day that was enough.

On a side note my car died, ran fine today but now won't run, just stumbles and stinks of gas. i think my LH died. Will swap in a another LH on Wednesday, for now I'm just walking away from it. Ugh

Thanks for all your hard work on organizing the event Adam.
I had a good time and really feeling tired now.
Great meeting everyone new and old, lots of laughs!
THANKS

After a long drive (SITM) you had a water pump failure and now a rough running car after a weekend of trouble free driving, what is going on?
At least your not stranded on the road!!
