    2017 Opel Events

    I've started working on the events calendar for the Blitz for 2017. In it I list major motorsports events, bucket-list type things, plus races and other events Opelers will be attending/supporting. See the attachment. For races I have the Tinyvette and will probably be able to get Gary Murph's race schedule again along with the other LeMons team near me.

    Am I missing anything? Are there regional Opel events, races, car shows I should list?

    Also, last year I had a section where I had business card-sized adverts for events. Anyone got any I should include this year? I'll put them in the Jan-Mar issue.

    The draft of what I have is attached.

    2017 Opel Nationals

    Yes, the National meet will be in Nashville, TN August 11-13th 2017. Working on the hotel right now. A pretty nice one down the road from the main venue of Lane Motor Museum, but they only have a 96room hotel. There is a Days Inn next door but it's night and day in comparison to cleanliness

    Mike, Gil is going to have his annual barbeque in April. I asked him in a email and he said yes, it would be in April, but he doesn't have a date yet. I have missed it for the last two years because I have taken the GT to Kool April Nites in Redding, CA. This year I said I am going to skip that and go to Gil's instead. It sounds like fun seeing other Opels at the same event, none at the car show in Redding.

    What a coincidence. I logged into the site to see if there might be some info on Gil's BBQ, and this thread was at the top of the page. I'm hoping to do this too. Unless it's April 8th (due to previous commitment) I'll be there!

    Zippy, good timing. Gil's gathering is usually in late April, so I think you are safe. It will be nice to meet some of the folks here on the forum. Always different than you thought.

    Thanks, Bob. I look forward to meeting you and some of the other fine folks from here too.

    Isn't Gil's BBQ held with the Gold Country Fun Run? I notice that's listed as a TBA for May.

    I am not sure if the BBQ at Gil's is in conjunction with some other event, but today on email that he was having in April. Maybe things will change before the actual time comes. It has been in April the last couple years, and I entered by GT in a car show in Redding, CA. This next year I want my GT to experience other GT's and get to meet some of the folks here on the forum. I will find out from Gil if the BBQ is in the gold country fun run.

    OK, got an email this morning from Gil, and the Gold Country Fun Run ends at Gil's for a barbeque. It was in April in 2016 , and from all indications it will be in April again in 2017. Since there has been no confirmed date, that might change. I am sure Gil will post the exact date once he settles on a date that will work for him.

    See the first attachment. That's what will be in the upcoming (tonight) issue of the Blitz.

    Also, see the second attachment. We did this last year and I'd like to do it again this year.
