I haven't received an email or pm
Maybe we didn't have a correct e-mail? :dontknow:

We're still working on the PM's. Anyway, no need to wait for that. Ken's #10 post of this thread is essentially the same thing as the invite. Just let us know if you can make it!:texas:

Imo

Ken, Donny,
I strongly encourage you to stick with the Confederate park off I 35 where we met last time. The location is one of the easiest to find simple on off accessibility close to fast food and now there is even a fine Tex-Mex restaurant right across the creek from the park. Good latrine facilities lots of parking and covered pavilions, shade trees and even a play area if you have to bring the kids. As for a better place in Belton there really is not one that I can think of that would be better suited for our event. Plus the price is free and that's always a plus, just my opinion. I will be there but I think I already told you that. Harald K

Kudos to Region 13 Leadership

Just want to start by saying thanks to Ken, Glenn, Donny, and anyone else who had a hand in putting this together-what a great idea!!! I doubt if you will ever find a time and location that will make a 100% of the members a 100% happy but this is a pretty good compromise in my opinion.

Not too keen about the idea of a car show. The last thing I plan to do after driving for over 2 hours is try to scrape all the dead bugs off my grill & windshield (only to do it all again the next day). Would prefer to spend my time & energy drinking something cool and looking at cool crucks.

Although I will not be able to RON at Belton, am hoping that I can link up with Geezer and anyone else coming up from San Antonio and convoy up. Maybe I can find someone going back to SA that night to draft on and help decimate the bug population on I-35S.

Looking forward to meeting some cool guys/gals with cool crucks!

Anyone know if there is power outlets at the park? If not, does anyone have a power converter in their cruck? If so, maybe I can snag a bounce house from work for any kids in attendance.

Great Progress!

I'm somewhat disappointed about the low number of responses to the eMails, as I had over 50 percent returns last year. For those who have received the invitations, PLEASE note that a response is requested - also that you give your user name on the ECC/NECOA Forum. I can't match an eMail address on your return to either your given name or your ECC user name. So, that information is up to you to furnish.

Now, all Texas members please print off a supply of the NECOA fliers, post them on all El Caminos you see in your immediate vicinity (wait 'til the cruck is stopped, or rolling slowly!) I also need a volunteer to draw up a simple flier for the Texas Invitational - so it too can be left on those crucks and posted in your local parts places, or any other place you can think of. When composing the flier, ask: "Where else are you going to see 40 plus El Caminos/GMC Sprints?" "Where else can you meet and mix with 50 plus cruck drivers?"

Good Idea!

Gregg, check with Donny - he's in contact with Belton city officials, and can add that question to his communications. I know that there's a public building and pavilions on site, but don't know about the plug. I do have a power converter if necessary..............Ken :beer: :texas:

Still receiving responses to the invites daily, but there's still a lot left out. Soon, I'm going to post a roster of those that have responding saying that they are coming so we can keep a running tally of those that have committed to come. As they say, "keep the cards and letters coming!"
