Discussion in 'National SHO Club' started by rooster, Jan 5, 2017.
Convention is dead. I said that last year. Even if dates were posted right today, there wouldn't be enough people that could commit. The track day would be a loss again and the whole thing would be canceled. Again...
I'm just waiting for it to be announced that it's not happening. Enough nutswingers like to keep chiming in that it's for sure happening and that they know all the details, but they can't share anything.
Let's just be realistic. It's May 25th. Convention is typically July. So less than 2 months and ....
I've lost hope.
I have heard there may be another Plan B attempted, I'd be down for that.
2018 will happen, as either myself or another member will have something planned. I'm very saddened by the lack of an actual Convention these past two years.
This member seems to think something was happening
Rich is good people, I'm sure he was just fed something and hoping.
Plan here is to Go to Road America July 22-23 to watch the best Vintage races in the Midwest.
As for track time the plan now is to run again with Northwoods Shelby Club Aug 26-27 at Blackhawk Farms. Nicest group I've had the pleasure to meet. Tommy enjoyed riding a session in a Superformance Cobra. I could see the smile through the helmet.
Free camping, which Adam, Michelle, Andy, my Son and I did last year.
MVP track days, run by Mark a member here with a Gen 4, runs the first Monday in June full course at Autobahn Country Club in Joliet. Problem with that is Carlisle Ford Nationals are the 3 days before.
I still might try that next year. Carlisle until Sunday morning, up early then head west 666 miles to my door, change the oil, sleep, then head to track Monday 5 am. worst case if SHO is tired for one reason or another I run Subie wagon.
I'm in for Plan B
I doubt I'll have a car that's track worthy. Though a rental car is the best track car....
I like the idea of going to Road America for vintage racing.
Who would be interested in Gingerman?
Road America and Blackhawk. My two favorite tracks. Michelle and I are in.
I'd like to go back but like Chris Gates dealt with blowing up there, how do I get it home if something happens. Gotta have a group and a friend with a trailer available. just realistic.
Back to the post title, heard something was up for a few minutes yesterday on facebook saying convention is a go, then deleted. Anyone know anything about that?
See the other thread on this. Kalamazoo, SCCA Track Night at Gingerman Tuesday, US131 Dragway TnT Wednesday, plus the usual Car Show and other stuff. 14 microbreweries in Kalamazoo, and the Gilmore Museum and a casino down the road.
Not deleted. And I would have to call Gingerman one of my favorite tracks definitely in my Top 3.
Yep, great track. I'm sure you'll have a blast.

Preliminary, but just awaiting some final pricing before the Registration Form is out in a few days

Just saw this yesterday. Hawk has a $25 off for Gingerman, off the already reduced price of $125. $100 for three sessions is a great deal!
