Question, I am correct in thinking that the Buick meet is July 16-20th? Where do we get the info on everything that is going on and how do we sign up for the tours and all the other things that will happen? I did make reservations but don't remember getting anything or did I miss where to request this info.

I am lost as usual but know the time is getting nearer....

Did not have a car to enter, just wanted to go on the tours. I planned on bringing my friend Dave with me. Dave works for me and we had a nice time in Lansing, but he is not a member. You are correct the March issue has the form on the cover sheet. I will not sign up for any of the tours because I would not want to go and just leave him. Thanks for the heads up on the registration form

This will be my first reunion and I will be going by myself as my wife is not really interested in looking at or talking about cars all weekend. What are the preferred days/times to take the tours and what else do I need to know? How many nights do I reserve and for that matter how many days are most people staying?

Anyone who hasn't been to Flint in a while, or ever: it is not safe to stay at a hotel in FLint, or on Pierson Rd.

The ones at Hill rd. or Gateway Centre are OK, or Davison, Lapeer, or Birch Run/Frankenmuth.

The cultural center during the day will be fine, but there is a reason there is no host hotel.

Just a heads up.

The Reatta Div has the Wingate at Hill road and 475 filled.

There will be a ongoing discussion about Reattas and if like 2003, people will gather around cars and discuss modifications, fixes, and problems.

Buicks will be arriving all week and some will be parked at the Cultural Center. The all Buick swap meet last from Wednesday thru Saturday.

Thursday at 1:00 pm there will be a Reatta roundtable at the Service Parts Headquarters, located behind the Wingate.

At last count, we had 9 people attending that worked on the Reatta program. This is a chance to hear their stories and ask questions.

At 5:00 pm on Thursday we leave on the Reatta Rendezvous...a drive to a resturant for more socialising.

Friday is filled with BCA activities

Saturday is the big Show/Display at the Cultural Center

Sunday Flint is having their parade with examples from each year of GM production. I don't know the start time.

Go to www.buickclub.org and there is a schedule there or on the Buick discussion page.

Barney,

Any list of who you have so far? Might be able to get Brian Boyd and find out where all those left over zippered binders went.
