Porsche Parade Charlotte

PCA sent notice today that the 2008 Porsche Parade is set for Charlotte NC, June 28-July 3. Registration opens March 11 and the spots go fast.

Anybody going?

I'm going to register in hopes that I'll be driving stick shift again by then.

No but...

...I will be going to Hershey this spring. You heading up to that? I am bringing my van in case I need room to bring larger goodies home. Already have lodgings at the Best Western on rte 422. Maybe see some of you other guys there?

I am definitely going to Charlotte! The wife and I have already started planning for it although we won't be staying for the entire thing (maybe through Tuesday).
I hope to meet some of you there!
Chris

Yes, I'll try to go to Hershey. I think Der Geist is planning to roll in from Ohio also. Hey. You got those vents in yet?

Thumbs up

Have the vents ready to paint. I need at least 70 degrees cause I paint outside so that will be coming with the better weather.

See you in Hershey,

We'll be going to the Parade, doing the TOD on the way, going to the Outer Banks the weekend after the Parade.

I am considering going this year. I went to Dallas a few years ago. We need to set up a forum lunch or dinner after we see how many we have going.

I wish jacksonville would do things like this. There's never any meet-ups in the jax area. Have fun and enjoy the weather.
