I have not missed a BTT 50's since Gene and Red Sonnen held the first one and we had no idea that things would get so overwhelming. All in all, I must commend the BOD and all the volunteers for pulling things off year after year as well as they do. I think the current host hotel is ideal considering all the space for parking being right next to the Hilton. I agree with my friend from St. Cloud that the key is to pick up your registration on Thursday. I wait until about 11:00 now and walk right to the table and I am out of there. Having been a member since 1967, I must say that MSRA is the "Gold Standard" for every car association to aspire to. They are generous to charities and to their members. The dues never go up despite all costs going up. I have even come a little later in the morning and go right to our club spot and have eliminated the long waits on the streets. Hats off to the MSRA.
