I'd say after a long day at the track....... yes, but that's just my opinion. I won't be the one driving though.




Ken ~ You want to run with it?
I'm in total agreement with you..... hotel banquet room??? Waaaaaaaaaaaay down on the list. I'd rather we all buy a bucket of chicken and something to drink and meet at the park than dinner at a hotel. Actually that would be fun. A caterer Santa Barbara style BBQ at a local park. We did that one year with our PCA region after the historics (on a Friday night) and even invited the Borg Ward club to join us. We felt so sorry for them. They looked so alone. We didn't think they would show up, but they did. What a blast.

Yes, we need to keep it close. We had someone early on offer up a BBQ at his house in Santa Cruz, IIRC.

I'll work on some places, guessing Friday is preferred?

Preference (for me) is a decent restaurant. Last on the list, and where I'd likely turn the thing over to someone else, would be a banquet room at a hotel.
Natalie and I are definitely in, coming from Montreal.

If this is a Rennlist thing, I am sure it would be a big group. If just from the 993 board, obviously less.

Glad to provide what limited help I can, but I'd say first step is to gauge numbers with some degree of accuracy so you know what you're looking for.

Ken (and JoAnne), I'm with you. A retaurant or even a picnic would be better than a hotel. Unless someone knows a really nice, scenic hotel that has room to flexibly accomodate a large group...

Looking forward to it!

Best,

Matt

The Hyatt, where a lot of people are staying, has a lot of open area on the grass.

I booked a room at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa on Del Monte Golf Course through Priceline.com for $126 a night.

An open grassy area sounds good to me. I'll have my 7 and 9 year old sons with me.

My Wife and I are flying out from DC for this event. Staying at the Sanctuary Beach Resort, which I hope is nice. Can anybody recommend other things in the area? I'm thinking of taking her to San Francisco…but I’m hearing route 1 is under construction..
Thanks in advance.

If you are going north on 1 to SF there is some one way controlled taffic later in the night but otherwise an easy drive. Here is the link to the highway department for updated status. Just enter the highway number, 1 in this case.

http://www.dot.ca.gov/cgi-bin/roads.cgi

The drive north of Santa Cruz on 1 to SF is great! About halfway up is a little town called Pescadero...about 1 mile inland. You HAVE to eat at Duarte's...this is somewhat of a secret so do not tell anyone else

Ano Nuevo is a great place before Pescadero to stop and hike...you may need reservationns for certain areas

http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=523

There is lots more...any questions please ask.

Interview with Klaus Bischof, man whose job many of us would quit ours for:

to have worked with these classic mechanical marvels the last 4 decades...
