OK, here is the latest on this Saturday's event: we are expecting at least 21 cars at the meet since that many have confirmed. At least 20 will be on the drive and we should have a group of around 35 or so people for lunch

Hi Eddy,

Most our participants already have radios (I have two pair myself; 3 to lend) and one of our coordinators has access to a dozen that are always available for loan at the meet.

The biggest challenge is keeping that many cars together, but we have a couple of pull-off places to re-group...
