    Redsled in Reynolds, GA has been contacted by Ed Swearingen, the track owner/promoter @ Silver Dollar Raceway in Reynolds, GA, asking if we are interested in a repeat of our usual Fall event there.
    Redsled has asked me to post here on the main board to gauge interest in an event, possibly in early Nov. on a Sat.
    For the uninitiated, the track is in Reynolds, GA, and a first class 1/4 mile strip with ample space for overnight camping for those who enjoy a party after the races and then camp for the night, with a Porta-John close by.
    In years past we've had a good crowd of hot rodders and cars. The safety rules are quite reasonable and everybody has a great time, whether they have a 20 second clunker or a 9 second beast.
    Redsled has in the past borrowed a great big smoker/grill for communal use, just bring a contribuition of charcoal as that huge grill is a charcoal hog!
    Once you're through racing, or just spectating and hanging out, your liquid consumption is your own business if done discreetly near the actual track, and with a minimum of disturbance anywhere. I don't think this needs any further elaboration or comment outside of PMs!
    If you have questions, comments,suggestions on avoiding date conflicts with other area events, etc. please post here. We need your input.

  2. That's always a good time. I would interested. I can't do the fist Sat of Nov. Whatever the group votes on will be fine.

    Why it seems like just yesterday I blew a head gasket down there.

    The first Sat. in Nov. is the 5th, with the preceding Sat. being the 29th of Oct. and the following Sat. being the 12th of Nov. Starting to get cold past that and we may have some "candy asses" in the crowd for later than 12th. Comments?
    I have a daytime commitment for 10/29, but since it doesn't appear that I'll have my roadster ready to go by then anyway, I can come down late afternoon for the evening and overnight if we have it on 10/29.But we gotta have more input!

    With that to consider, then that leaves us 11/05 and 10/29 unless we can move it up to 10/22. Will get back with Redsled or Ed as quick as possible, maybe even 10/15?
    Come on yall, input!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Chad, as you well know, this is as much a meet and greet as it is a drag race, and it ain't confined to H.A.M.B. active folks. If you like hot rods and customs and the people who feel the same, it's a good place to be!

  11. Just wondering about this the other day
     
  12. why do i have to be this far north.....Reynolds rules! I'll wear my shirt the day you guys go and be pissed i'm not there
     
  13. I'll be there Hell or High water, unfortunately I will not be able to help any or at all with the arrangements this year. I am already committed to something on 10/15 so an early November date would work best for me. But what ever date you can get...

    Gotta call Redsled and fill him in on the events that conflict with some of the dates and then he can discuss the rest of the available dates with Ed and then we'll see what comes out then as to dates.
    Can't call tonight as my cell phone died today and they're Fed- Ex overnighting me another on warranty, and Ionly have his number in my phone. Thankfully it's on a removable chip I can transfer to the new phone.
    All input appreciated and besides, it helps keep this thread up near the top!
    Dave
     
  15. The 10/29 date sounds good to me.
     
  16. Actually 10/29 is what Ed said would be our best date. Redsled
     
  17. Can anybody recommend a good place to stay for the camping impaired?
    FWIW Dave- we're kickin' it around...

    Then let's shoot for the 10/29 date as I seem to be the only one with a conflict and I think I can schedule mine for early in the day, head down to Reynolds a little after lunch and be there most of the afternoon and all night.
    Lango, I'm not familiar with lodging accomodations around Reynolds. I suggest a pm to Redsled, as he is a Reynolds resident and knows the ares inside out.Good news that yall are considering joining us.

    I'm always up for reynolds. That is the weekend after the moonshine festival which may or may not impact this. I'm planning on going to the moonshine festival and it may be tough to hit to events back to back.

    Off Topic vehicle, the baddest hot rod, or the Koolest Kustom, if you can get there you're welcome if you like people who like cars and the cars we drive or are building, planning, and just dreaming about. It's a fun event, informal, and sometimes a little goofy!
    YALL COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LANGO The only place close to stay is the Fort Wayne hotel/gas station/ store in Reynolds. They only have a few rooms.
    There are a few hotels in Fort Valley which is about 20 miles away then the Macon area.
    Call Ed at the track, he will help.
     
  25. Fort Valley is located about 15 miles from Reynolds. Perry, Warner
    Robins/Centerville and Byron are located
    just off I-75 and are each about 25 miles
    from the Track.

    Fort Wayne Cantina and Inn has nine very
    nice rooms and is located here in Reynolds.
    Call 478-847-3590 for reservations.

    Onsite at SDR, we do have an RV station for
    dumping and water. We have limited electrical
    hook-ups that are "first come, first serve" and
    are $10/day. Pay for electrical at Front Gate.

    Jimmy, I had a catastrophic crash on my phone yesterday, lost all my numbers on it. Please send me a pm or a email or call me on my cell with your number. Looks as if we are solid on 10/29.

    Seems like something is gonna conflict every weekend! But Ed Swearingen, track owner and promoter, plus the majority of respondents so far are OK with10/29/11 so that's the date.
    Dave

    PS You can drink all the beer you want once you're through racing!
