Marlboro Reunion Registration Info (Finally!)
We¡¦re ready for ¡§registration¡¨ for the July 12-13 Marlboro Reunion.
The fee is $35 per person. This covers the rental of the facility,
lunch for everyone, beer (on Sunday), and incidental expenses in
staging this event. The Washington DC Region, SCCA is apparently not
able to support this event financially. I understand the reasons, and
can accept them.
Because yours truly must absorb all expenses ahead of time (except
for Joe Herson¡¦s kind assistance with the rental (in memory of the
Lavender Hill Mob), I must ask you to get me your check for $35 per
person by July 1. Please make the check out to ¡§Steve Lloyd.¡¨ My
address is as follows:
7928 Edgewood Farm Road
Frederick, MD 21702
Sorry, I cannot accept credit cards. (I¡¦m not self-employed; I teach
at two local community colleges. º )
I would like to get a mailing address for everyone. This is so I can
mail you directions, etc. and maintain our Marlboro veterans¡¦
database. Some of you have responded for several friends. That¡¦s
fine, but I still need a final list of everyone attending (as well as
their registration ¡§fee.¡¨)
Lunch will be Frederick¡¦s Doc Geiser¡¦s fried chicken, cold roast
beef, Swedish meatballs, green beans, potato salad, cole slaw, iced
tea and lemonade, as well as a variety of sheet cakes for dessert.
Doc Geiser¡¦s is the former ¡§Watson¡¦s Chicken,¡¨ renown for its
excellent chicken and homestyle green beans. For the beer I am buying
bottled beers ¡V a couple of microbrews, like Sam Adam¡¦s seasonal, and
a regular domestic beer like Budweiser.
The car show at Surreybrooke on Saturday, July 12 costs us nothing.
Later that evening I¡¦ll try to set up a pub/tavern room nearby where
we can meet to hoist a few brewskies as a ¡§welcome¡¨ event. This will
be on our own nickels, so to speak. Both days our official event runs
from 10:00am to 4:00pm. (Saturday evening¡¦s get together at the pub
lasts until it¡¦s over.) At Ostertag Vistas on Sunday, we actually do
need to be out of there by 4:00pm.
I¡¦ve been editing Dave Roethel¡¦s Marlboro movies ¡V adding music from
that time period, and captions. I¡¦ll also have my own movies from
Marlboro, VIR and the Reading Road Races. Some of you asked to bring
your own videos, and please do that. We¡¦ll be able to view either VHS
or DVD format. I will also have some Marlboro memorabilia,
Straightpipes and SCCA¡¦s Sports Car from as far back as 1951!
Effectively, we have no limit on the number of people for the Reunion
Sunday, July 13th, but I would need to have a number ahead of time to
provide lunch/beer and cover the additional per-person rental fee. I
wish I could have done this another way financially, but without the
Region¡¦s financial help, I¡¦m on my own. Given the enthusiasm you all
showed at our ¡§first¡¨ reunion in January of 2007, I am confident
everyone will have a great time and feel that their weekend was worth
far more than $35 per person.
I¡¦m really looking forward to hearing from you.
