I'm not going, but that's surprising close, 378 miles. Just got back from vacation and we're short handed next month. But it would be fun! Hope you can get some people.

Might be interesting to go to if I could tell where it is.
From your posting all it says is it's on June 11 but doesn't tell me where it is and there's no link to it to get any information

My wife and I are planning to be there. Our SLK is white, and recent weather has not been too kind to it, so I plan on washing it prior to the event. Murphy's Laws, etc., I hope that doesn't cause a further deluge that day ! I believe the cost might actually be $10 if you enter your car. And why not ? I have tried to include the flyer for the event here, hope it works.

Maybe you could wash it on the 23rd give the potential rain 2 days to clear out.

We're in the London area that morning so we'll try to drop in if weather cooperates (tornado warning in GTA today - yikes).
It'd be great to meet some of you...

Well, left home with sunny skies and some clouds to the west. It was a two and a half hour drive to the event; two minutes after we arrived the heavens opened up and it poured rain. Then it got worse. I was inside a building looking out a large picture window when the hail started to come down. Yes, hail, all of the cars were being pelted with pretty good size hailstones. At that point I had to turn away. I try never to drive my car in the rain so a hail storm was too much for me to watch. When that blew over we all checked our cars and did not find any damage. The weather then turned sunny and very pleasant. However, the rain came back in the afternoon and we all had to move inside for prizes and raffles. It was a good day however, I am sure the weather turned a lot of people off. From our group we had Ken (busybee), Warren (from Ontario) Claus (CBRE) and one other couple and I don't have their names. We missed you and Chris, maybe next year we can have a larger group. i did have the opportunity to pass out a few SLK Forum cards to some non-members. Now I am out of cards. For pics we will have to depend on Busybee.

Cheers, Ken
