This just in (we've moved the start point a few hundred yards North):

Please note that the Milwaukee PCA Fall Tour scheduled for this Saturday
(Sept 22) has a new starting point. Due to anticipated high attendance, we have moved the starting point to the Park and Ride lot 67-50 directly to the north of the Delafield McDonalds. It is located on the north side of
Golf Road. We don't want to inconvenience the McDonalds traffic with
Porsche's taking up the parking lot and we'd like to make it easier for
tour participants to park, therefore we've made this last minute revision.

Here is a link to the Park and Ride lot for your reference:

Unhappy

Chicago Boxster buddies, I am being forced to cancel my trip to Chicago.

My new next door neighbor has decided to petition the city for a mixed use of the property making it into a business with a house behind it and the hearing is on Thursday of this week.

I need to stay home and go downtown and plead my case to keep my street residential.

I live in a very old neighborhood that has no deed restrictions and Houston has no zoning. So, this is the only way to attempt to fight it.

I am bummed out. However, I got to Chitown once or twice a year and we can plan another get-together.

Randall,

So sorry to hear you will not be able to make it. I know we were all looking forward to seeing you again

If anyone is interested, we could still meet this Friday ( Gino's does have great pizza ). We can raise a glass in Randall's honor !

Let me know what you guys think...

Nick

I arrive Oct. 3 (a Wednesday). I don't know my schedule just yet, but either Wednesday or Thursday may work for me. Anyone? Anyone? ("Something-d-o-o economics?")
