2 more signed up to go, that's 12 and 2 @ 70% sure, and two more without a car but just want to hook up with us for some of the meals. And several TC guys working in when they can.
Shaping up to be a good one.

Just to let you know.
Everyone must register by Sept 23rd for the group rates. After that date the price will go up to the standard rate.

On a side note also we now have one more registered. So that puts us at 13 + the two that are on the fence and about 7 in TC.
Thanks,
Todd

Okay everyone the dinner sites for Friday and Saturday are set.
Friday will be at a place on the bay called Scott's Harbor Grill very nice and has a great deck looking out over the water.
Saturday night will be at the Grand Traverse Yacht Club very close to Scott's overlooking the water also. We will be bringing in some salmon and steaks similar to the food that we have had on our Sat. BBQ's in the past. This time someone will cook, set up, and clean up for us. And everyone gets to pig out and enjoy.

So we need to get accurate numbers from everyone attending so that we can get the right amount of food for Saturday and resv. on Friday.
Please give me a shout as to your numbers.

Thanks,
Todd

Just one more full day to register at the hotel. So far we have 7 registered there now and about another 6 or so locals joining us.
Going to be a good time for all. Please feel free to join us even if you don't have your Roadster. We always tend to have one or two that don't.

Todd

PS. Please let me know so that we can get numbers for the steaks and Salmon for Saturday's dinner.

We are going to make it interesting for the drive up on Friday also. We have 5 different routes that you can decide on for the trip up. We will vote at the meeting spot and decide which way to go from there.

Hi everybody,
Sorry about waiting till the last minute but I literally just got in from LA. Been out there working the last two weeks.
It looks like the weather is not going to cooperate with us and we are going to get some rain all weekend long, not to mention possibly some snow flurries.
No matter what the weather we will be going up for the cruise, we probably will be taking the daily drivers now instead, but we will be going.
You are welcome to still join us just give me a shout to let me know.
My cell # is 810*931*7276

Hope to still see you all.
Todd

To anyone that gets this before they leave ( the event is today ), if you see two crazy eye people in a silver jeep looking through the rain drops, wave.

Not sure who all going , but we are and it is a steady 50 degree and raining day. But it is for the company.

Hope to see you at 23 and Owen.

There are at least a few of us still going. Unfortunately it will be without the cars.

Well we had a great time despite being rained on almost the entire weekend.
I want to thank everyone that attended and mad this another great Color Tour.
All total we had 11 people on the Tour and several others hook up with us for the dinners.
I hope all had as good of a time as my wife and I did.
The invite for next year is to cross the border and tour over around Sault Ste. Marie.

What do you guys think of that? We may move it up in the year so that weather should not be a factor though. More of a cruise than a Color Tour.

Thanks again everyone,
Todd

Wink Color Tour

Great idea I wish I would have found this post in time. Next year you should do it a bit latter in the year so there is more color in the area. Just seems to be starting but still nothing major. We are putting together a trip on the 10th if any of you are interested in that. I hope the color will be better then! If you are interested you can see more information at Boyne http://www.boyne.com/EventsCalendar/...dventure1.html Should be fun and relaxing. Whats better than hiking, rafting and a massage after? Hope more people sign up, its so nice to meet others from the area and out of town.
