This is a great location for the meet. We had 22 members when we were there in 2010. We could possibly break the Western Meet record of 27 members at this one.

Here's the Cruise the Gorge event featured on My Classic Car. They do a great job of showing the scenery in the area and the show.

Just made my hotel reservation tonight. This will be the longest trip I have made in the 71. Me and my wife are looking forward to meeting everyone attending. We are planning to leave our home during the early morning hours of the 10th. I assume most members attending will be down by Thursday afternoon. If anyone wants to convoy southbound on Friday, let me know. Looking forward to a great time!

I’ve been planning the driving route for the tour... so far I’ve planned from my garage to the kitchen fridge. Thankfully there is beer in the fridge, so many will like the route.

Having problems with online registration & contacted event organizer.  Problem determined at my end, so will try a different browser for registration & payment.

 

While talking I was asked who I was with and I informed them the FGMCC and that we had attended in 2010 as a WM Car Club, expecting around 24 cars estimated this year.  He was excited that we are returning and said he would try to see we had group parking for the Venue.

 

Aaron might want to confirm with them @ (503) 309-0041.  I let them know our event organizer may contact them at this number.

I figured so Aaron but he acted so surprised when I told him we were returning from a previous year and after identifying who we were, I felt is was worth a FYI just in case.  He did say that he would advise the Parking Committee to accommodate us as a Group.  I estimated 24 vehicles...............  ;)

I had a conversation wit him last night. They will make sure we have an area for our cars to park as a group. He remembers our conversations last fall and they are excited to have us there.
