Meet up invite

Hello all Goblin builders. I received this notice of my Mid West Sevens group looking at an event in May. Goblins and interested builders in progress are invited. The fellow organizing this is gauging interest and would like a hand count, so he can make hotel arrangements for rooms and have a ball park figure for restaurant reservations.

This is in Chad's backyard almost! I will post what the organizer has posted in the notice.

If you are interested send me a note -- Dale E (this way will not clutter up the Goblin meeting thread) -- and I will forward your name and number attending to the organizer. Thanks in advance.

From the Organizer:

I would like to gauge interest in another gathering this spring. I tried to host one in 2019, but am sorry I wasn't able to due to complications with the birth of my son in late 2018 that kept me from doing the prep work. Fortunately things have settled down on that front. I know why we didn't hold one last year and for good reason but what does everyone think about this year? I expect many will have cabin fever and be ready to get out and about by May. We can keep 6 feet between our cars right?

Chime in if you are interested so I can get group rates at the hotel. I also have a few local car clubs that are interested in joining us including the Greater Ozarks British Motoring Club, and two of those members have original Lotus 7s.

I have local contacts who work at the Ozarks International Raceway, and will continue trying to get us access. They are still saying no, but I will keep on them. If we get a big enough group together we may be able to persuade them if we sell it as a good marketing event for the track.

I am still finalizing a few details, like lunch on Friday will be changing from Captain Ron's to Franky & Louie's, but they are close to each other.

I have been doing the prep work and this is what I have ready so far. As we know with cruises, things change so the time's are approximate and I allowed time and places to gather and wait for stragglers. Being a boating area, there are plenty of refueling options for ethanol free gas.

I wasn't too clear. You can let me know if you are interested in this by replying here in forum or by conversation method.

Chad + 1 said they would be interested already.

I wish I was free, but that is the weekend that my youngest is graduating. Sounds like it would be a lot of fun.
