Somebody is going to have to navigate me there, mostly cuz I'm not paying attention to these details.

I have room for three easily!

No one would ever expect a 55 Buick station wagon as the get away car!  The best part is no one would ever be able to describe it, and todays cops would be looking all day long for a Cadillac Escalade!

TTT...  Just a reminder.  Even if you did not indicate a desire to attend, the event is still open to anyone who cares to attend.  No reservation is required,  just an attitude of friendship.  The Flea Market swap is totally optional, although it is the main entertainment.

 

Come on down, and meet your Buick buddies!!!  We'll keep the light on for ya!

 

Safe travels!

Thanks to all who came out for this unofficial event.  It was a great time!  The Yuenglings was excellent!  And I enjoyed perhaps too many of them. 

There were about 34 people in attendance.  Thanks to Mike for posting that picture. But it did not include the families and friends who also participated.

As usual, the alcohol based gifts were readily exchanged, but there were some other nice gifts too.  Joyce Schramm wound up with "The Can of Spam"  which, by the way expired in 2015, so I recommended she treat that with utmost care.  Don't want that one breaking open due to rough handling.  And, although no one made a Buickman nomination  last year, Larry Schramm did offer one to Dandy Dave, for " Coughing up a rod" which allowed him to get the 15 truck back together in time for the Meet!  So we awarded Dave Brennan the Award with a round of hoots, hollars and applause!  Congrats DD.

 

I'll try to post some pictures taken by Parker Tom, whom I had the pleasure to sit with.

Thanks to the friendly staff at the Hanoverville Roadhouse for their attention.  Even though we were the normally raucous group I was only aware of one incident:
