I've still got to register up, but I've got some technical stuff to work out on the side, which is why I haven't got signed up yet. I intend to be there regardless.

For those that haven't registered.....There is not a Taurus section. Register as Taurus SHO otherwise they will put you with the Full (Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis) register as SHO to park with Taurus. They don't exactly do a VIN check but your parking pass would stick out like a sore thumb since the parking areas are color coded. Last year we were a few spots away from the snack shack which sells food and Ice.

Also FYI I believe the cutoff for discounted admission is very early May. After that I believe it goes to $55 for show field admission. REMEMBER

SHO/SHOW....SHO for class and show field Admission.

Having a tough time organizing this year due to work and life getting in the way, as well as a general disorder among all the car clubs. As much as I want to do tshirts and raffles again, I just do not see it being feasible due to the large volume of people.. and also tons of people going with the Taurus group who are not affiliated with this site. Hard to gather everyone together if ya know what I mean.

Haha Swag.

Well here is what I posted on the Taurus FB accounts:

As I did in 2014, despite not bringing a Taurus, I would be more than honored to lead the Taurus Club festivities at Carlisle's Ford Nationals June 5-7. This year is proving to be a bit more difficult, due to the fact that there is a lot more volume and it has expanded past just TCCA and TSOC. With this said, I will need anyone going who will be part of this club to step forward and get in touch with me. Feel free to message me.
Last year, I made and designed us banners, designed tshirts, and put together a bunch of raffles. It was largely successful. Last year, those attending paid me a modest fee to put everything together. So what I am thinking again is asking those coming and being involved in the club events to put forward $25 each (paypal or check) toward these supplies. Now the likelihood of this happening depends upon the response I get. If I get little or no response, I will NOT move forward with this. If there is high interest, I will get things moving... this event is right around the corner, believe it or not!
So the important info is going to be whether you are interested or not, your tshirt size, phone number (although it is easy to get in touch on FB), and then payment arrangements. Many can speak to last year's events if you have any doubt.
I do need to put a deadline in place, which is to be determined... but please do not drag your feet. To get Tshirts and banners made is an undertaking, so the deadline will probably have to be in the coming week.

Weekly bump

May 4th 2015 is the cutoff for discounted pre registration of 10% for Showfield. Normally $55 discounted should be $49.50 Remember to park with Taurus group register as Taurus SHO Otherwise they will probably put you in the Full size.

Use Taurus Car Club America as group.

Showfied layout usually is available about one week prior so no gaurantees trhat we will park the same place as last year.

It's looking like being there Sat isn't an option for me again this year. Sigh.

So, now I need to decide if it's worth just coming down for Friday. So, what day are people planning on arriving?

Sadly, yes. Unfortunately, my daughter's dance recital is always the first Sat in June. There are two shows, 1-3pm and 4-6pm. I was hoping she'd be mostly in the later show, so I could spend Sat morning down in Carlisle and get home in time for the later show. It's not working out that way.

I tested the waters if I missed the first show this year, since next year I can't (her last year). It didn't go over well.

Still have some time to work some different angles. If all else fails, I'll be there Thur/Fri or maybe Fri only.
