Yup. Im still alive.

I will be hosting on Saturday October 10 at my house for this event. Food will be provided and we will have a bonfire in the evening. I have a cigar lounge in my house available to those who want to indulge.

Yup. Lots has happened in the last year. :cool:

For those who need my address please PM myself or Tixer.

Oh yes. It's happening. Slightly abbreviated due to socially responsible measures, but you just can't keep a good Markfest down.

Thanks for hosting, Kirk! I'm looking forward to this!

Just a heads up, I do have accommodations for anyone who needs to stay overnight into Sunday. I have a guest bedroom and some couch space.

The attendance list is shaping up very nicely! Any last minuters out there? Joe, Bill ?

I wish I could have made it... :)

The best case scenario would have been having to take several days off upon returning while waiting for a negative covid test... :rolleyes:

It was a great time Kirk! Thanks for having us over, I probably should have stayed another 12 hours o_O

We need to have a another one next year once this end of the world stuff is over. Joe needs to drive his new one over and pick up bill and Sharron on the way.

Agreed. Thanks for hosting the Markfest this year! This, and the cruise Eric put together in the spring, were the only real "car events" I participated in. I'm glad we had that much.

Thanks for coming! The event was small but mighty. Luke's tire marks are still in front of my house and will probably be covered in 5 inches of snow later today. :rolleyes:

On a side note...I way overdid it on the Hershey bars for the s'mores and have ate way too much chocolate this last week. On a positive note, there was no glucose detected in my urine at the clinic yesterday when I went in for my DOT med card renewal. 😂

Ha! The ultimate Diabetes test. Sounds like you're good to go.

I just realized that 2020 has been this weird. Markfest this year actually consisted of 3 Mark VIIIs, 3 Mustangs, a Lincoln Navigator, and a Dodge Ram pickup. I guess we still sneaked by with a slight lead in the "Lincoln" category. So I guess we will call that a sloppy win if we consider that pile of junk in the garage on jackstands a contender. LMAO

The garage one definitely counts.

It was super dusty, and surrounded by "A Mercury or two," but it counted. :D

It just occurred to me that Kirk is living a country song. Drivin' that lonely road just payin' the bills, and spending weekends at the track.. All you need is a belt buckle, and a faithful hound-dog.
