Thanks for the update Tony.

There's an event though in Carmel on Thu between noon and 2PM with the Pebble Bech cars on Ocean Ave. I plan to be there.

Phil & all-- I was hearing that Tues' Carmel Concours was cancelled

FYI, instead it's simply been scaled back -- their homepage currently says

I should be there again -- last year's was a charmer.

LOTS of great photos by RJT on the "Monterey '09 photo thread: Laguna, Pebble, Quail, etc."
For starters:

I think that the event is definitely cancelled for this year. The link you posted was not updated.

Here is my photo report from last year's event.

The link I posted is the event's homepage.

Since Carmel's Tue Concours is arguably Monterey car week's first event, it's time-critical to relay facts. Identifying dated website content that states cancellation would be helfpul. A link to a site more authoritative than the event's homepage, or an e-mail from them regarding why they aren't updated would be ideal.

Examples...
Today, 7 Aug-- E-mailed address on carmelConcours.com, [email protected], & courtesy copied [email protected] the following:
Carmelconcours.com and motorclubevents.com both state a Limited Edition Event Tuesday, August 10, 2010 is open to the public for viewing 12:00 noon - 1:30 PM.

An enthusiast thinks the event is definitely cancelled for this year, & that your site was not updated. Please confirm.
As of Aug 7-- Organizer's homepages carmelConcours.com and motorClubEvents.com had already been updated from stating 2010's "Open to the public for viewing 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM" to:

TUESDAY - August 10

Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours on the Avenue - special LIMITED EDITION display of selected cars on Ocean Ave. This will be taking place from 12:00 - 1:30, and will include filming of an episode of Chasing Classic Cars. It sounds like fun, and we plan to check it out. Our best wishes to Doug and Jeanie and hope that this fabulous event can return to its full glory in 2011.
July 27-- RLer posted regarding Carmel's Concours:

Previous Carmel concours events ran over two days and took up several blocks of Ocean Avenue in downtown Carmel, and there were about 200 fabulous cars.

This year’s concours will cover only two blocks of Ocean Avenue and run only one day, Aug. 10. But it’s still free, and you’ll still be able to see some cool cars. This year there will be about 30 of them.
I'll post here if the organizers respond to my e-mail that asked if their event's cancelled.
Hopefully helpful; many really enjoyed that event last year

Carmel's going on right now!

Response from Carmel Foundation's Development Manager:

FWIW, I'm scheduled for private showing of the The Porsche 918 Spyder prototype in person in a few hours. Fingers crossed!

I have more to share, but a few of Tues' photos start on this post of the "Monterey 2010 photo thread: Pebble, Laguna, Legends, Quail, etc. ...918 Spyder!"
Anyone else go?

Sorry I missed you Saturday Mike, did you make it out?

I enjoyed Friday at Consorso, Saturday @ Laguna and Sunday at PB. Picture of the Veyron is my Dad going for a ride - he loved it! He turned 70 this year, myself 40, it was wonderful to experience the weekend together.

Bruce, we were there at Laguna on Saturday. I kept an eye out for the green cap and yellow wristband, and we were at the corral around 1 PM, but didn't see you. Would have really enjoyed meeting you and your Dad.

So many great cars there; it's almost sensory overload. In addition to all that, we got to hear Jeff Zwart talk about his Pikes Peak hillclimb record and got a pic with the honoree of the weekend, Dan Gurney. Sorry we didn't connect; glad you got to spend the special time with your Dad.
