Reatta owners lunch in Anderson Indiana

Barney Eaton

Recommended Posts

A few months back I posted about a lunch in Anderson Ind. The dates and details are now firm and I want to invite anyone living in the area to attend. This started with 3 Reatta owners and presently looks like we will have 12, plus wives and guests.

Date ..... Sept 12 2012

Lunch will be at noon, try to be there around 11:30

Location .... Elks Lodge, 1803 Broadway St Anderson Ind. Lodge phone # 765-643-5351

I do not know Anderson very well so I cannot tell you much about where the lodge is located, Google the address.

The lodge has a menue so you will order your choice of lunch and pay for what you order.

So far there are the locals from the Indianapolis area, one Reatta owner from Toledo and Tom Selander is coming down from Grand Rapids. I will be there because the wife and I have a HS class reunion in Frankfort on 9/15, but we will not be driving a Reatta. I do have a good friend that lives in Anderson that owns a 1990 convertible they purchased new and I will make sure he comes.

If you live within driving distance, we would like to see you there. Send me an email or post here if you plan on attending.

I used to live in Anderson (when going to GMI I was a Delco Remy employee) but that was back when GM was worried about selling too many cars). My recollection is that the lodge is about two blocks south of Cross St on Broadway (main central N-S road) Not sure of namong now but back then it was also SR 9. Easiest way to get there from almost anywhere else is to take I-69 to the SR 32 and 69 exit east of Anderson. Take 32 west to the 109 bypass aka Scatterfield road. Go north about 3/4 mile to Cross Street (light at intersection) and turn west. At Broadway (4 lane rd) turn south and it should be about two blocks.

Or contact the lodge.

It was a beautiful day yesterday to attend the Reatta owner lunch in Anderson, IN. It was an enjoyable lunch and visit with other Reatta owners. We had a good turnout with about a dozen cars there. Barney, thanks for sharing your technical expertise with us! Photos courtesy of Jim Campbell.

I returned home late today and and had hoped that someone had already posted some pictures. I am downloading the camera and will post some you don't have along with a list of the Reatta owners attending. There were 12 Reattas in attendance, it was great that everyone could come.

post-30596-143139179757_thumb.jpgPicture is from the other end of the parking lot. The 3rd car, white/red 90 convertible belongs to my friend Wayne Clore, we went to school together and he purchased the car new. It presently has 53K. I called him in advance and told him to get it cleaned up and we were taking it to the lunch. The Polo Green at the far end belongs to Tom Selander, they drove in from Grand Rapids (about 5 hours)

To all:

What a great way to spend a beautiful September day. Everyone was sooooooooooooo nice and the cars were great-----I had never seen any of them before.

That was quite a drive for us from Grand Rapids.

It was nice to see Nancy and Barney again (three months after the national meet).

Today I worked the stack down to the sign-in sheet from Anderson. First I want to thank Mike Jones, Gene Phillips, and Larry Reyonlds all from Anderson, for their help in finding a place and providing name tags.

I want to list the people that attended and their cars.

D. Fish drove down from Toledo in a 1989 red coupe

The Clores from Anderson drove a white 1990 convertible

Gene Phillips (Anderson) had his 1989 red coupe

Mike Jones (Anderson) with a 1989 coupe

D. Hineman from Plainfield with a 1990 white convertible

Jim Pierce from Carmel did not bring a Reatta

Fred Dalton and wife came from New Castle in a 1990 red coupe

Jim Campbell (Anderson) 1990 coupe

Charles Durbin (Anderson)

Rich Guard from Zionsville with a 1990 driftwood coupe

Mark Hoover from Kokomo with the black 1991 convertible

Larry Reynolds (Anderson) 1990 red convertible

Tom Selander Hudsonville MI 1991 Polo Green coupe

Nancy & I drove a truck. It looks like not all the wives signed in so I don't have a count on total people.

And the fellow with the second Driftwood coupe did not sign in.

Since the 2013 BCA national meet will be in Ft. Wayne we may try this again next year. If you want to be added to the list, send me a note and I will put you on a list for notices.
