Richard....this is great that you are hosting the meetings with the MG guys.
Let me try to answer and comment, one at a time, parenthetically:
> 1. How many of you plan to attend? Joe A, are you keeping

(I had a list, but it needs to be updated...however, there is enough interest

(I think that we should tell the MG guys that the hotel Keywords should be

(Our own paddock area is a nice feature. We need to include "Tom Strange's
Triumph Big Top" in the planning mix. A veritable Mall of Triumphs, each
entrant will be allocated a 10 x 20 space for 12 Triumphs in a row.I plan to
early and will help you and Tom with this....Richard, I would not try to put a
lot of effort into 'making reservations' . This requires way too much
organization that the FoT just doesnt have.. :-)

(I thought the Panoz Factory Tour was planned for Thursday night...please
advise...I am looking forward to this extra feature....Kudos to the MG guys on

(First off, WE TR guys are the "great unwashed". No tent is planned for,
this time, by the Western PA TR guys....Tom's Triumph Big Top may potentially
serve as this area
My suspicion is that this is going to be a pretty good event.
(yes, it is)
