It looks like we're still waiting for Rod and 65barnfind to sign up on Dano's availability schedule. So far it looks like everyone's available for the weekend of August 5/6.

Dano -- you might want to consider extending your schedule to include September weekends too.

I went back and found the calendar posting. I checked the August 5, 6 dates , but when I tired to add extra dates, it did not let me check additional ones.
I could also be available the last weekend of August dates.

Either weekend, I may have to leave a bit early on Sunday, depending on any proposed schedule of events.

So it looks like everyone (except Rusty Nut) is available on the weekend of August 5th and 6th. Rusty said he would not be available until after August 20th. Unless we can find a weekend in September when everyone is free, then we should all reserve that first weekend in August for our West Coast Mini-Meet.

I sent an email to the Antique Powerland asking if we need to make some type of reservation, and if there's any particular place on their grounds where we can meet (other than the parking lot). If they don't email me back, I'll call them on the phone in a couple days. They do have a "steam up" scheduled for that weekend according to their website. Might be crowded then.

Added! I added some dates. Had to learn how to use that tool better.

Guys - Can someone lead up the actual firing of the event and securing the place? (Is that needed?) One of the few times I'll be out is this weekend Aug 5/6 and I'm not very reliable right now with my work situation. I'm stoked that we've got a little posse going here.

I just spoke to a nice lady at the Antique Powerland. She said that the weekend of August 5th & 6th would be a perfect time for us to come since there's so much going on that weekend. See http://www.antiquepowerland.com/html/steam-up.html. She also said that it would be best if we would all meet somewhere else offsite first, then drive to the Powerland together so that we could all park together in their parking lot. She said all the museums onsite would be open, including the truck museum. There will be lots of food vendors too, so no need to pack picnic lunches.

Here is what I'd like to propose for those driving far enough to need an overnight stay (like me):
Drive to Salem on Saturday and stay here overnight: https://www.crosslandstudios.com/crossland-salem-north/. Meet in the parking lot Sunday morning (8 AM maybe?). Drive up Hiway 99E to Brooks and over to the Antique Powerland on the other side of the freeway. Park together in the parking lot there. Have our "mini-meet" right there by the trucks, then enter the Powerland to enjoy the show. Note the $12 entry fee.

If anyone wants to suggest a different hotel, a different place to meet, or a different schedule, this is your opportunity! We should make reservations soon before all the hotels in the area book up.

I'm game for whatever. I'm always so busy that I have a hard time remembering even when I put it on my calendar. If we could do reminders the week before that would be great. I'm good with Sunday the 6th
