I don't think so, Michele already mentioned it on Facebook so I think it's okay. :) 

If not I'm in big trouble!

No way!!  You'll have a family function come up for the same weekend!  Guaranteed!!!  :lol:

Yep, granddaughter birthday on June 21, something I won't miss for a few years.  That's why I was so excited when Solli said they were looking at the weekends on either side of that weekend.

Like Shiny said...it will be very much like the mod meet, except way more people and lots of stuff to do during the day.  Meanwhile we'll find a place to talk cars and be merry at night!

Looks like I'll need to lay in an extra bottle of bourbon or two.

Very true, Dave. :thumbs:
Big thing for us is knowing that it's a traditional Thursday-Sunday type instead of a week day one like Austin. Sliding the date back or pushing it forward a week is the easy part...

The goal is during summer solstice which is June 21. When choosing that hotel that was a consideration. 
I'll say more once the contract is signed and Solli gives me the go ahead.

Solli has said she will update the other boards, I offered that since I was on this one the most I'd keep you all updated.
I know not every person goes to every board so it'll take a team effort to coordinate all the comments, concerns and feedback.

Hopefully positive feedback please!!!

Is there a section for ex kappa owners?

No

Well there is this thing called a mod meet coming up in a few weeks maybe you could burn the wings off that moth then. You know when you are not drinking the Guinness GJ has to buy.

Hello all. The original plan as discussed this past Sunday was to post the 2014 NASSM OFFICIAL thread to the boards after contract was signed. I will be cutting and pasting the information to all the boards at that time. Karen was designated as liason to Kappa Performance since she basically lives here. :-)

I'll be posting the photos and links to all the boards where ever they might be - I want to keep the information identical from one forum to the next as to lessen any confusion for our attendee friends.

Thanks for your enthusiasm! We couldn't do this without you. 

Dave, I'm sorry about the dates - but this hotel was the one that had 6/21 open.

I would, but I'm not the maker of the jello shots.  These are jello shots E-Spesss-eee-al!!!  Not that I couldn't make basic jello shots...I've just never done it.  I'm all for it!!

Add whipped cream to the shopping list when we make a trip to the Food Lion.  :D

solli, my friend, no need to apologize to me for the date, I understand the reasons for having a Solstice/Sky big-to-do on the Summer Solstice.  I just have the misfortune of having to pick between partying with my wild and crazy sports car buddies or partying with my beautiful granddaughter (not really a big choice, she wins every time). 

Anyway, I'm supporting the Poconos effort any way I can short of being there for the event.  Beth and I will come out and run your roads for you if you have the Garmin routes done before her spring (Easter) break next year (same as we did for Asheville).  Anything else you need that I can do long distance, at least ask, the worst that can happen is I'll say "no".

Oh SUUUURE!  Wait until I no longer have a Solstice and do this THIS close to me!  I am in even though I have a different car now!  Someone PM me for volunteer duties.

It's a great idea, I'll pass it along to the board. Just bear in mind it is about 150 miles or 2 1/2 hours from our potential Nationals location.

As soon as the Event site is listed and it isn't too far, some folks might want to run down?

Hey Steve, we tossed Carlisle about over the years and I can say it's not on our agenda but if you want to go, I'm sure there's people who would make the trip with you.   :cool: :drive:
