Ok, attached is a screen capture of the space for discussion. The top of the pic is due north. All falcons on the left (west) first then and fill in towards the north? or our club on the south along the grass first then filling in west to north?
Just throwing it out there for discussion. (I was the guy there early last time when some early birds arrived and asked where they should park and my elegant answer was "uhhhh.....")

Five bags of ice do it Don? I can't remember how many we did last year.

OK, Here's a color chart we could use. The only issue will be whether groups that came together want to park together. We saw a lot of that last year.

I see on-line a lot of pictures of people parking on the grass, so some overflow or at least a couple key cars could do that I guess.

I think we could also direct cars up the ramp and into the front of the shop, take their picture, and then send them to their spot below. Will have to look at that when we get there.

Roger,
Do you really want me to bring the trailer to the show?
I mean i can, but its 19 feet long and would take up at least 4 spaces.

We're bringing the trailer to the coast. Thats part of the reason for not bringing the falcon. That and its just not ready.. its getting close though..

A radiator and no electrical gremlin and i would have..

Plenty of room and I think many would like to see it. I allocated space in my colorized map.

Do we have anyone to take photos yet? Diane was there last year to do it but it was kind of a bust for her. It was a little chaotic when we opened the gate and not clear that people were supposed to go to the NE corner for a photo and then pull around to park.

We start at 10:00 which is on the late side for a car show and there were already early birds showing up when we got there at 8:00. So there's that to deal with. And again, I've never communicated with Diane about taking photos so I wouldn't count on it.

If we do take photos, I think it would be better for everyone to get parked and settled in and then go around and take the photos. The parking spots are pretty big so you can get a good shot of the car without the one next to it showing. How we get these to the participants is another thing!

I know the Canadian group will also have a few non-Falcons with them... I would hate to split them up.

Roger, nice work on the map!
Does the SW red section have to be saved for Griotes customer parking?

I suggest we put trailers (Nathan) on the far North so we don't block any rubber necks trying to check us out from the road that might be considering stopping in.

Agree with Kenny on the early birds and not knowing where to go...is, photos, etc. I Agree it may have been a bust for her because we had no greeter directing.

Do we have a "car show" sign to put out by the Main Street?

On items for the raffle...some items with more broad appeal are great for raffles, but I think some items it's better to sell. I know it's not a swap meet, but have we considered a table to sell falcon stuff for people with say a 25% cut of the sales price for anything that sells? (I have a few things I would like to get some cash out of (which I had planned to eBay at some point) and it would be great to make a few bucks for me AND the club. I wouldn't mind donating A few parts to the club for the raffle but I don't they would bring much in a raffle situation...

I made one for the last show but it was stolen some time during the day. It was hand made and I don't have time to put one together at this point.

Don,

Other regional and national meets have had swap meet areas. I say bring what you have and if you can make some money, make some money and help a fellow member out.

Nathan,

No worries.

Sounds good Roger. It's mostly some freshly plated handles and hubcaps..at various levels of quality...and if any of you guys on my normal "board of directors" want any of it for your car...I'll probably just put it in your passenger seat.
Jeff- by the way, i ended up with a new rear parking brake cable for a wagon..if you need one, it's yours, if not, it will probably be up for sale too.

Kenny, I can't believe someone took your sign!
btw, I saw on fb that Diane won't be at the show. I'll also bring my camera and we can all pitch in with pics.
