Ok, took me a while to try and think of everyone to thank, but here goes. Now I know I will forget someone, please respond to this thread if I do, but only respond for that fact. These are in no special order.
First, Don Goebel for getting us in contact with Bud Moore in the first place and making that happen. He also was selling some really nice Nationals shirts that were white golf type. I believe he sold out by the end of the event.
Henry Rasmussen for making some special items and bringing some cool stuff to the event. Also, for the great auction he held at the BBQ. He knew how to suck the cash out of Mark Brown's wallet :) Very entertaining. Thanks for the $$ donation Henry. Very kind of you.
Donald Farr for signing books and anything that was thrown at him. He also helped me hand out door prizes at the BBQ.
Frank Bowers for sending a TA tape that we had rolling for everyone to watch. Hope you guys liked that movie area.
Doug Duncan for setting up the Hooters gala. Man what fun. Also, thank you for the nice glass trophy presentation. I will display that proudly. And thank your wife for trying out and winning the Miss FORD Carlisle pageant.
Gregg Anderson for sitting at the registration table and taking care of 'stuff' in general.
Darryl Martin, Brandon Solano, Mike Hartman and Todd Eby for parking cars and working on their tan. And also for stuffing BBQ tickets and setting up the compendium sheets for DocBOSS. These guys worked hard and had to listen to why some owners didn't want to park where they were told. Unsung heroes in my book. Brandon also supplied the Ice Breakers Liquid Ice for your enjoyment.
Jim Turrich for making the Tee Shirts for the event, the concours metal plaques and the metal plaques for the door prizes.
Rick Parker for holding a reception for the west coast caravan and bringing a few hats for us to enjoy.
Brett Cooper for paying big bucks out of his pocket so we could have some very nice lanyards. Henry Rasmussen helped earn some money for us to help him financially so he could go home to his wife :) He also sat at his computer for hours making name tags for everyone. What a guy. Thanks Brett. And we didn't even ask him, but it looked like he was having fun.
Mark Brown for driving that distance, displaying his car and going out of his way to pick up people in his caravan so they could be in one big group. Thanks for the little west coast goodie bag man!
Gary Pechman for bringing that keg o' beer and having those cool beer mugs for people to buy.
Rex Fields for having
Mr. Carlisle for us to sample. Man, he was really good!
