    A good old fashioned HAMB Meet & Greet! Those seemto be organized at every big event like this. I'm surprised this hasn't come up before. Count me in! I always missed them at the Pileup because I was doing show stuff

    I would say meeting at the Chrisman Brothers Coupe may be a good place - lot of area around the car - it is the ONLY car in that building.
    OR the Car Club / Retro Reels Cinema Building (4H Building) - but it may be kinda crowded in there.....
    looking at the schedule there is a good time window of 12:45pm
    most people should be there by then.
    but Bob K wont be there .... so someone will have to bring the Meet N Greet "hello my name is" stickers

    While it's still early on, weather.com says woodstock Il is going to only have a 20% chance of rain friday night and saturday...round these parts 30% is barely a chance. Low 60's both days and partly sunny. Good fall weather.

    we are actually going to open the fairground gates for staging at 6am.
    so if you want to be one of the first to roll in - you can get there at 6am.
    We will open the show gates to the pre registered cars at 730am
    Then at 8am we will allow the rest of the cars in.
    PRE REGISTERED CARS that are not there by 7:20am wlll have to wait in line like everyone else....
    it will simply be too confusing to break up the lines after that point.
    We are now up to 268 pre registrations.....(please stop sending $$$ we will not have the ability to send out your reg cards)
    this is going to be a GOOD show people.
    Thanks for all the support and if I am not able to get on the HAMB after this morning - please send email to vintagetorque@gmail.com and I will try my best to get back in touch with you.
    Sam from the Tin Butchers can also answer a lot of questions as well as Mitch from Tin Militia.
    Thanks and seeya there - rain or shine.

    Crew? Yeah there will be a dozen or so guys around I am sure. See you all there. If there is anyone running across I80 East or I380 with room, could I catch a ride Thursday night or Friday morning? Otherwise my wife doesn't get done with her continuing ed until 3:30 Friday afternoon and I have to wait for her. Please and Thank you.

    Did anyone decide on a spot for the Meet-N-Greet? It sounds like 12:45 is the time, is the Chrisman Brothers Coupe the place?

    One last bump before we hit the road! It seems nobody wants to pull the trigger on this, so let's go with John's suggestion: Meet-N-Greet at 12:45 at the Chrisman Brothers Coupe. Anyone? Bueller?

    Works for me.

    Hot Rod Hucksters play at 11:30. That might be the earliest we've ever played I think, aside from radio stuff.

    We hope to be on the road in 2 hours! I guess the 3 hrs I spent washing and wiping the Lincoln isn't going to matter, it is raining here right now! I hope everyone remebered their "long johns", it looks like it is going to be a chilly one tonight and tomorrow!!! I packed my gloves, "long johns", a hat, a few hoodies, and even switched out the plain ol' rum for Captain Morgan's spiced rum, fall must be here!!!

    As long as the Minnesotans keep their snow up there, we will be fine. Pour in the antifreeze I guess.
