  • Carlisle 2017 Schedule of Events

    This is a new idea (for me,) but I thought it might be useful to put together something of a calendar for this thing. Everyone is welcome to add recommendations. I'll update this list as items are added. I'm also tinkering with a dedicated Google calendar, but in reality, I think this might be easier.

      The annual LOD banquet will be at the Comfort Suites (Dickinson Room) once again on Saturday evening with Happy Hour beginning at 7:30 PM. The banquet menu is still being decided upon but dinner will be served at 8:30 PM with the club awards presentation and raffle activities following dinner.

      Once plans are finalized, there will be an official announcement but I figured everyone could pencil in the banquet on their events calendar.

        Bump - I've added a few things to the calendar, and cleaned up the format.

        As always, I'm open to suggestions, additions, grammatical critiques, etc.

            A few always show up on Thursday, and I hope to as well. Some time on the fairgrounds, and be in/around the hotel bar / Lobby around dinnertime, and I guarantee you that you'll find some hungry people. I know Leo and I have hit a place down the street a few times in the past.


            I'll add it.

                    Wife wanted to know what to wear, so I looked up the weather. Looks good till Sunday. Mid 70's a little sun, and some clouds. End the show with a free car wash ha ha

                      That weather looks so good that I hardly believe it myself..

                      Normally, Carlisle is beastly hot, punctuated by occasional tornadoes and strait-line winds.

                          I won't know if we will make Fridays dinner until then. All depends if the kids nap in the car or not on the way out.

                          Also I have a bunched of used but working COPs for a 2nd gen (16, 8 OEM and 8 aftermarket) if anyone is interested.

                          HID ballast.

                          And a 1998 Lincoln Press Kit as well that talks about the CE if anyone is interested. It has 35mm slides, LOL

                          Make an offer.

                              Does anyone have a slide projector they could bring to Carlisle?

                              I'd like to see these.

                              I've got the video tapes and cassette.
