    Late Winter/Early Spring Chili Get Together

    It is time again for our annual "Chili Fest" . We are a bit later than usual, but that may mean we can actually bring cars this year! We will have our "Chili" Opel Meet on Saturday, March 25 at our home in Tallmadge. All are welcome. Arrival time, any time after 9:00 am.

    We will provide food, so give us a shout to let us know you are coming so we have enough.

    Vickie & Allen Gage

    P.S. I know there are a lot of new PA, OH and MI Opelers out there....come on down!

    Steve:

    Hope you can make it. We have had this in February in the past so no one ever brought cars. This year being late March, if it rains enough who knows the roads could be salt free.

    We have the meet anyway, bring pieces parts to work on, questions, answers, pictures etc. We always have a good time with our fellow Opelers.

    As of now I plan to drive down barring bad weather. Probably not in an Opel though - saving the miles for Carlisle and Springfield. I think I can still find the directions you sent last year.

    I should show up around noon. Sounds like you're getting a bigger turnout this year!

    Need any parts? I've still got all the stuff I picked up from Lee Johnston.

    Any other MI Opelers going?

    Don...we will be looking for you about noon on Saturday.

    Steve..sorry to hear you will not make it. Maybe you can make it when we have one this summer and have all the cars here.

    We don't go to Carlisle until Friday morning. We usually leave around 7 a.m. I believe there is a campground on the Fairgrounds at Carlsile.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday. If you find any more new Opelers...drag them along!
