Saturday May 21,2005
Saturday, is the big 'fun Field' If it's sunny
weather, one can easily expect anywhere from 1200 - 2000 cars on the field(s) And
don't forget the 200-500 vendor and Car Corral spaces. So even if you're not in a
position to 'show' your car, it's a great place to buy or sell one.
We will again be sponsoring a small fun road rally
through the nearby countryside and historic district of downtown Carlisle. One of
two type of rallys will be run. Either a repeat of the route from last year, with just a
few 'changes', or an in town/area treasure hunt. The 'country course will run north right
along the Susquehanna River, up into the mountains for some nice windy roads, and back
down through Cumberland Gap right into Carlisle. Points for 'observations' will be tallied
to determine a winner. Ofr the in town treasure hunt will be stopping by various historic
sites to answer questions, or retrieve trinkets. You can each chose to run TSD, or
Points, or Sights and Questions, or j-f-t-f-o-i.
1st and 2nd place awards are usually cash prizes, from the Chinese Auction intake.
Fun Field and car 'Show in a Show'
NASS will be holding it's own car show with awards to a variety of classes
and the rally results. We've even thrown in a few 'special' awards.
Saturday night Meal
So far the plans are
burgers, beers, and Billiards at Fast Freddie's (a local family style fun Pub)
First off, I'd like to thank all those that have
contributed items to the Chinese Auction we'll be holding once again during this years
event. What's a Chinese Auction? Well it's a bit like a silent auction. You buy a
series of tickets, deposit the values worth of ticket in the box respective of the item
you'd like, and at the end of the day, you find out if you won the item you wanted.
What happens to the money collected? A bit goes to help cover the event costs, while most
goes to prize monies for the road rally, and the attendees door prize drawing.
The following is a list of some of the more
interesting items donated to the Chinese Auction, along with the names of their
