Convention

I like the idea of the map, and pins, etc.
However....As the chair of the most recent convention (Potlatch) I can tell you that if we want to do this, WE should do this and not expect the folks from Tulsa to do it for us. They have and will have their hands full with hotel reservations, late registrations, and all the important details that make a memorable convention.
I'll be there with a US map and a bunch of pins.
Can somebody from relatively close bring an easel and foam board for backing for the US map?
I suggest setting it up (in the art show room???) on Wednesday for maximum exposure.
How about meeting for beers/tire-kicking?? When??

This map - in an electronic format - would make even more sense AHEAD of time to help plan drive-routes and stop-overs to hook-up caravans of drives...

I'm thinking about coming. How long from Salt Lake City, Utah to the convention center? I don't drive quite as quickly as Anthony and Simon , as I'm more than twice their age, but will still average at least 70 mph including stops, in my trusty little 2001 Hyundai Accent 4-door with a 1600cc twin cam and a chip (about 120 at the flywheel in a car that weighs only 2280 pounds)

I don't think the Alfetta GTV Mille Miglia version (only 300 built) that I just bought will be ready by then (100 red, 100 white and 100 black; mine is black)

I'm looking forward to the convention, and hope it is well attended. Hallett will be a great place for the track event. Although not fast, it is pretty technical. If it is your first time on the track, you will really love "The *****." Lots of time to be had here if you hit is right.

Is there a video of the Hallett course, one of those in-car shoots that I've seen of other courses?

Joe,

Check out the convention website http://www.alfadeco2006.org/ it has several updates, including track info. Russ Neely, AROC Comp. Chair, says they will run in counter clockwise direction.

I found some video here. It is apparently from a track day of some sort.
