Was back home by 10:00 am. THANK YOU again to Patrick and Mark for a very enjoyable Intl.Meet! Sure enjoyed seeing the Pro Cars and and meeting new people, being PCS members or just others who came by to look at the vehicles.

Looking forward to seeing many of you again next year in Rochester, Mn!

Maybe before? Just in the works is a Weekend ( Oct. 11 or 18) , Leaf Season get together in Prairie du Chien, Wi! Pikes Peak, Local Museum, Mississippi Explorer Boat Trip, Pete's Hamburgers, Sawmill Saloon, Jim's Packer Bar, Antique and Specialty Shops and maybe a tour of a Not So Fancy Small Town USA Funeral Home or two? Come and meet some of the natives as well as other tourists visiting the area!

Tony Karsnia will be providing more info at a later date! BUT keep those dates open and watch for more info!

Hope to see you all again sooner than later!

Default Thank You!

A sincere Thank You to Patrick and Mark! Those two guys ran the meet like they had done this a thousand times before; effortlessly, seamlessly, and always with a smile. If there were any complications, they hid them well behind the scenes. Our only regret was that we didn't do the Friday tour; Mack would have loved riding the train. This was a quality meet and those who missed it, missed a great one!

Kim, Mack, and I enjoyed seeing old friends, meeting new ones, and finally meeting some friends in person that we'd known through the message board. Mack is a typical 13 year-old and preferred going around and doing his own networking...can't be seen with the parents too much at that age, you know. Our thanks to all for being kind and patient with him.

Since Chuck mentioned the Fall Meet, I'll add this here: While in Milwaukee, Patrick and I had a discussion about reinstating what was formerly known as "The Great Tri-Chapter Meet." This was an annual joint venture between the Illini, Northland, and Wisconsin Chapters. After the Iowa Hawkeye Chapter was formed, we brought them into the mix also. We both agreed that it would be great to have an annual event where people from several states could easily participate. We'd like to throw something together for this fall already so we're working on plans for a Fall Meet in Prairie Du Chien, WI. More info on this very soon.

Thanks again Patrick and Mark for a fun, enjoyable, and relaxing week in Milwaukee. Hope you have the opportunity to take a well-deserved rest now! We look forward to seeing everyone next year when you "RESPOND TO ROCHESTER!"

Patti and I arrived home--Durham--at 7:45 p.m. Sunday. A great show! We were unable to be there for the whole week but we enjoyed old friends, new friends and the tours while present. Thanks to Partick, Mark and all who helped. Congrats to all the award winners. God willing we will be responding to the Rochester invitation next year. See you there.

Default Thank You!!

Arrived home at 9 PM last night. This was the first International Meet for my family. We enjoyed every bit of it. The location was perfect, the weather was beautiful, and the cars were way more than I have ever hoped for. It was so nice to meet people and put a face to the name and it was nice to be reconnected with old friends. Well played Patrick, well played!

Default Great Meet!!

Janet and I were able to extend our holiday by travelling home with some PCS friends. Dr. Lloyd and the Boyers and Kim McDonald were with us on the ferry and we all had dinner together in Muskegon before driving the final leg home. We arrived home about 10 PM and were thoroughly worn out! A great meet and a big thanks to Patrick and Mark for all their hard work. These meets really are more of a family reunion for us than a car meet.

I know I have not been on the message board for a couple months but had to come back to comment on the International. I got home about 9:30 last night. I also want to thank Patrick and Mark for putting on a great meet. It usually takes a committee of many to do what you two did to put on such a quality event. I just wish I could have spent more time talking to everyone instead of nursing my POS back in my room, Im sorry to my PCS friends that I did not get to spend much time with, and sorry to the ones that I spent too much time with LOL. It was great to finally meet Rick Franklin after so many years of only knowing him here, and putting faces to other people we only knew here. Lots of fun, friends and beautiful cars, too bad it was only a week. And one of OUR cars finally took best of show over all the other makes of "normal" type cars. The PCS should be proud of that accomplishment. I know Dan sure is, he probably thinks he is still dreaming, after all he was woke up from his nap to tell him he won. (I don't know what it was about the tent we were under but I think almost all of us were snoozing at one time or another). The location for the show was the best Ive ever been to, and the weather was perfect, with a nice cool breeze coming off the lake and watching all the sailboats in the distance.
Again to Patrick and Mark, Thanks for putting on such a great meet for all of us!
