    2010 Chili Opel Meet

    It is time again for our annual Chili Opel Meet. It will be Saturday, February 27, 2010. The Meet is held here at our home in Tallmadge. Feel free to show up anytime after 10:00 a.m. Generally, people leave their Opels at home this time of year but, if you are one of the courageous, feel free to drive yours.

    Come and join us for a day of relaxing, Opel talk, and troubleshooting. If you have any parts to swap, pictures or videos to share, etc. feel free to bring them.

    If you can, let us know if you plan to attend so I know whether to make 2 or 3 pots of chili.

    For those of you from afar, if you wish to join us and need overnight accommodations, just let us know. We have a spare bedroom or two. If you need directions or phone numbers, PM us and we will send them to you.

    I'll be there ... thanks for the invite. BTW ... those GT parts I told you about ... they're gone. He still might have rear glass for the GT and Manta.

    OK... the chili is ready to cook and the beer is cold. We will have the driveway shoveled out, again, in the morning. Actually, we were out and about this afternoon and the roads were just wet. A little more snow coming down now, but I don't think we are supposed to get any more than 3 more inches, if that.

    Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

    We had a Great turnout today in spite of all the snow. We had 16 Opelers. There was much eating, drinking and Opel discussion. Also talk of who is bringing what to Carlisle and lots of plans for future restorations. We missed having Tom Cavatario and Thomas and Amy Kahlert with us, but hope they can join us for our next meet in July!

    It is always good to get together with members of our Opel Family.

    I got home about 8:30. Pretty heavy snow all the way to rt. 80 and beyond so I took it easy.

    Good to see everyone, and thanks again for the hospitality Vickie and Alan.

    See you at Carlisle!
