Obviously I plan to come, but finances and such may complicate this.

I may come with friends who will be driving their camper. We'll probably switch off for the driving so they are not stuck in the truck the whole time.

I'll put a seat in for the passenger, probably the Kirkey. 1000 miles is not that bad on a tail bone.

Have people considered swapping cars fr parts of the tour? You're all welcome to drive mine.

I'm attaching the article from the recent Blitz that describes the tour.

I might try to go to Vegas for a weekend. I’ve heard there is to be a meet up in Vegas between Friday, April 27th and Sunday, April 29th. Is that correct? And what hotel / casino are you guys staying? Is there a specific one chosen or just fend for yourself?

Between Gil and I we'll have plenty of souvenirs to take home with you. We've just ordered 120 coffee mugs. See the attachment. I'm also making a poster, large, 36x24. I'll also be bringing some Tinyvette swag, including t-shirts, small posters, bumper stickers.

I've made a large (40x20) map we can hang in the wall or lay out on a table at our meeting places.

Thanks Mike for that info. I had looked back in a match and the Gold Strike was booked full. I’m looking into a place in Vegas that I have stayed at before.
A block of rooms are reserved for the Opel group. You need to mention that when calling.

Roy and I booked our rooms 2 days ago at the Gold Strike 800 634 1359 for Friday and Sat the 27th and 8th. We got the group rate ($70) I also booked the room for my return on Saturday May 5th. I got thru with no problem. Try again.

Thanks for the info. I just booked a room for Friday & Saturday nights. Now I just have to drive there after work... I'll miss Friday night's meet and greet but the car show is what matters anyways.

Well I won't be there till 8:30 - 9 PM. And I'm sure most of you guys will be heading to bed around that time. I'm a young whippersnapper that stays up late. :p

I'll have to be very social on Saturday to make up for missing Friday's festivities.

I'm sure if you buy everyone's drinks you'll be forgiven. :yup:

A bunch of folks from our area will be meeting up with Gil in Fresno on Thursday to make the drive to Jean. We hope to join them. We'll be bringing the Tinyvette and Kurt's camper (attached photo).

Bernhard, part of our original race team, is looking into flights from Germany to SF or Las Vegas and will be joining us.

Gil spent last weekend getting his GTs ready.

Gil told me all of the officers from the European Opel club group will be coming.

Jens Cooper, it seems at this moment, will not be coming.

Gil and I talked about souvenirs yesterday. All that is coming along great. We'll have stuff for this tour, OMC, and Team Tinyvette.

The coffee mugs were a hit at the 35th anniversary of OMC and sold out very quickly, many people purchasing more than one. They were all gone before Gil and I could grab one for ourselves. We're making twice as many this time and I'll be making an order form so if we do run out of anything people can order them and we'll have more made and ship them later.

We'll have a conference room at the hotel in Jean and it includes a projector. We'll use that during the map meeting/discussion before the tour. We can also play videos, slide shows, and I will be bringing the demo version of the OMC DVD, containing issues of The Blitz I have in electronic form. Eventually I'll get this done and the final version will include archival material from other clubs, too.

Of course I'll be bringing extra copies of The Blitz.

Mike
