There really is not a "mandatory" dress code, but I would say just dress how you would going to a nice sit down restaurant.
Ive seen anywhere from suits, to more casual button up or polo shirts and slacks, to blue jeans and T shirts on a few.

I may frankly set a new benchmark for how informal the awards banquet dress code can get, as other projects require that this be the first meet since Burbank where I'm forced to fly instead. There's NO WAY putting my apnea CPAT and all the cameras, chargers and batteries I need to cover this for TPC into checked baggage, so the clothes I'm packing in my carry-on must be kept to the absolute minimum. No suit jacket, no ties, no dressy shoes which are the biggest space waster of all! TMI it may be, but socks and underwear are even likely to get washed in the sink if it frees space for another backup camera or properly detailed Houston maps for my rental car.

I know when my girlfriend flies to AZ to see her family, she does not pack any clothes. When she gets there she just goes to the Goodwill and buys her clothes for the week, undies, she does bring her own though. Much cheaper than paying for the luggage fees.

Default one less car

we headed out yesterday with the 86 made it 110 miles and lost the filler piece between the head and the block. we got it home had to run 2 gl. of water threw it to do so. but we left it there. I told Kandy we could take the 72 but she flat said "no". so we will be there only using our lead car. I promised the bunnies we would take them to Tx so they are occupying the back seat. all we lost was about 5 hr travel time. see you there

Dang, sorry to hear that Ed- glad you made it home safe though and that you weren't any further when it happened. I hope the "Hard Luck" award goes to you guys and no one experiences any further troubles. See you Tuesday!

Ed, I am glad that you are continuing on to Texas to see us! The cars are not the most important thing to us..., the fellowship is! It will be great to meet you and Kandy and I appreciate the 2nd effort!
