The Festivities Start
Friday when Nassers start hitting the show field. NASS members will be
out the vendors asap for the hot deals and fresh pickings. A Friday
meal is planned, hopefully where all the member that made it, can chat and stuff their
faces while fine dining.
As well as the NASS activities, check out
the schedule of events
that Carlisle itself hosts. The SCCA will as usual be doing it's driving thing (Fri? Sat?), as well as
the mobile dyno on
premise for you to 'road dyno' your car! See the Carlisle
site for full details.
Friday night Dinner
So far, the consensus
seems to be a return to the Sunnyside restaurant. Many attendees from
years past all commented on the quality of the food and service, prompting
the return visit..
Alternately, the group can decide on burgers and beer at one of the local
Sports Bars. It's up to you the attendees.
field opens at 7am
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, Kit Car
displays/sales and the FOOD!. Even if you're not in a
position to 'show' your car, it's a great place to buy or sell one. Even
if it's only for the day, drive drag or tow your car to Carlisle. Let the
world know we're still on the road!
Hopefully we'll be able to pull off a couple more tech
sessions as in years past. We're still in the planning stages... so kick
in and help pick a topic!
Fun Field and car 'Show in a Show' judging
NASS will be holding it's own ';show-in-a-show' as in previous
years. You don't have to join in the S-I-A-S to join us on the show field.
(But you do need to register
your car for the Fun Field with the fairgrounds to park on the show
field) Awards for a
and 'special 'categories' will be awarded to participants of the NASS
We will again be sponsoring a small fun road rally
through the nearby countryside and parts of the historic district of downtown Carlisle. One of
two type of rallies may be run. Either a repeat of a route from a
previous year, with just a
few 'changes', or an in town/area treasure hunt. Perhaps a Poker Rally. One
possible country route will take us up to a major precipice over looking
the Carlisle valley. There are some really great smooth windy roads in the
area we hope to make good use of. Awards for the rally will be based
on participation, and a group decision on the type of rally desired.
First off, I'd like to thank all those that have
contributed items to the Chinese Auction in past years. We'll be holding once again during this years
event. The quality of the auction is all based on your
contributions 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
drawings. Items not won, 'may' simply be awarded as door prizes by drawing
names from a hat. So be generous. You never know what YOU might win!
The following is a list of some of the more
interesting items donated to the Chinese Auction, along with the names of their
sponsors/contributors. Please help add to the list for this year's
(...following is a list of items won at
auction or given away as door prizes).

missed anyone's donations from years past)
Many items have no starting minimum bid. So you can pick up these items at super low

attendee of The Show in a Show, to bid on these items.
So if you make it to Carlisle, stop on by the tent and bid!
Saturday night Meal
>4pm to ?
The Skovira's have graciously agreed to again host
the Saturday nigh festivities at their beautiful home just minutes from the
Carlisle Fairgrounds. The plan is to have the Road Rally end at the
Skovira's. Those not up to cruising the countryside, can head straight over
to Ron's to help setup food and libations.
Sunday May 20, 2007
Sunday is the day Carlisle gives away it's awards.
Awards to the largest club in attendance and etc are awarded. It's also the drawing for the car they give away every
year as a door prize. But you must be in attendance at 3pm to win if your
number is drawn. In years past, anyone leaving before the drawing has been
asked to turn over their tickets (after recording the numbers) to anyone
sticking around. If the car is won by one of those tickets, the agreement
is the car will be raffled off amongst current years attendees, or simply
become a prize for next years Carlisle event for some lucky Nasser to win.
The proceeds of the raffle will be donated to a charity in NASS the club's
name. Anyone that has registered
their car for the fun field, automatically gets a ticket for the
giveaway in their attendees packet. But you
must be a S-I-A-S participant to win from any of the NASS attendee's
ticket if it wins. ++++This years car
giveaway has not been announced yet. Last year it was a 1976 Fiat 124
Sport Spider 1800 ++++

A Personal note from one of this years co-chairs...
all! I know I disappointed a bunch of people last year when
FIS6 didn't make it to the show. well even if I have to tow it up
there, it'll be on the show field this year. I'm willing to do a
tech session on F.I systems (and possibly moving GT6 engine back
in Spit frames) if the attendees desire so. Hey Ron... are you
going to have your fuel injection up and running on your Spitfire
by Carlisle?? If nothing else...we'll be able to see it at
your house Sat. night right? :-)
