Title: Announcing Boss Reunion Planned for July of 2011 - Cancelled
Post by: admin on July 07, 2009, 05:00:29 pm
Boss Reunion Planned for July of 2011.
Facility:  Summit Motorsports Park
Location:  Norwalk, Ohio
Date:  July 22, 23 and 24th, 2011.
Visit:  www.summitmotorsportspark.com (http://www.summitmotorsportspark.com) to view the facility.
Summit Motorsports Park is a well groomed facility, it has a 1/4 mile drag strip that hosts NHRA events.  This facility is rated as one of the very best in the country.
 
Lisa Leathery, is the event director (organized the Boss Reunion for Carlisle) and will be working with Randy to help organize and build a fantastic Boss Reunion.  The Reunion will be held in conjunction with Fords at the Summit, an all Ford, Lincoln, Mercury and Edsel show established in 2009.  Norwalk, Ohio is only 1/2 hour away from Lake Erie, Cedar Point amusement park and many great attractions, making this venue a real destination point.
 
Early conversations between Lisa and Randy included talks of adding an on site road course.  There is plenty of time to plan, we want your input so tell us what you would like to do and we will make it happen.

Count me in.  Carlisle was GREAT and Norwalk should be even better.  I have been to many events at this track and have always had a fantastic time.  The Baders, who own the track, are some of the nicest people you could ever meet.  Don't forget the "pound of ice cream for a buck".  Looking forward to this "shin dig".  Thanks Randy and all who worked on the event at Carlisle, it was memerable.  Thanks in advance for everything you will be doing for us, putting the 2011 event together.

Fantastic!!
Argueably the finest facility of it's kind in the country.  Very family oriented and racer friendly.
Best of all, it's in my backyard!  Been going there for years.

Just another little hint, I found that shooting for goals was a drag. So I've stopped saying when it will be done, Now whether You own a 1969 or 1970 by the time I've finished mine only time will tell.

My, My, My, Randy and his microbrew beer.   Go figure what a combo, good stuff. I will try to make it also. Carlisle was a blast. Good time had by all. Will be hard to top that one. But Lisa does a great job putting events together.

I haven't visited the site for a while, so I may have missed some posts.  Please excuse me if my questions have already been answered.
Has a date been established for plans to publish a new Boss Registry?  Does anyone know if Donald Farr is planning to get his new Boss 302 book published in time for the 2011 Boss Reunion.

Thanks for any information.

I sure hope they don't schedule it for the same weekend as the Goodguys PPG Nationals in Columbus.

That is a huge event and I would hate to have to choose.

Have had my 1970 B2 there a couple of times and it always draws a crowd.

Hey Mark, you could ship the car save the wear and tear on your truck and look out the window of a plane, that would be different.

Hello All,
I am very excited about the 2011 Reunion in Norwalk, Ohio.  The area has plenty of hotels and there are some nice attractions that can be added to your travel agenda.  I am going back to the facility for a planning visit and I will take some time to check out the attractions.  For those of you who are not familiar with the Summit Motorsport Park trust me when I say it is a beautiful facility.  And since food seems to be an important part of the agenda, Norwalk is famous for their $1 a pound ice cream.  I look forward to working with Randy again, we plan to deliver a fantastic event. 

Sorry I didn't reply sooner to the posts, but if you have specific questions or comments put them up and I will keep checking in and will be sure to reply to your comments.

Lisa

Lisa,

Do you have any idea on the date yet?  On attractions, for those in the need for speed Cedar Point Park and its dozen or so roller coasters are right near by.
Title: Re: Announcing Boss Reunion Planned for July of 2011
Post by: 1966GTA on September 02, 2009, 05:23:31 am
The dates for 2010 are July 23-224-25.  The 2011 dates should be July 22-23-24 but that is not yet set.  I'll work on getting a confirmation.  Due the the ongoing schedule at the Summit Motorsports Park a single weekend change could move dates forward or back one week.  I do know the show will be in the later part of the month of July.

You are right, Cedar Point is very famous for their coasters.  I also hear the ferry boat rides to the islands on Lake Erie are quite nice.  I'll report back with a report the end of this month.

This will be my first after 4 years of restoring the 70B2.  This park is fantastic and all the positive comments about it are right on track. Its a great time of year for that location of Ohio.  And for the one's asking about cheese, Cheese Haven, Marblehead, Ohio, cheese@cros.net  has been around since 1949 and isn't to far from Norwalk depending on your drive down, about 20 minutes west from Cedar Point. :):)

Thanks Lisa,

I'll be towing my Boss up there, with my enclosed Toy Hauler/RV. I'd like to document my road trip with pictures a long the way, and the event. Then post it up on the Boss Registry, when I get back. I did something similar, years back for another event I attended across the states. :)

I look forward to meeting you, and anyone else from the Boss Registry thats attending!

Just food for thought. How hard would it be to get a car hauler there at the show to allow people to place there car on with other cars to take a picture. I'd be willing to pay to have my car on a 18-wheeler hauler with others. You know like they were being delivered to the ford dealership.

Just an idea?

I will be there for the 2011 reunion for sure. For anybody that has never been to the nearby Cedar Point Amusement park let me assure you that it is well worth adding it to the to do list!!!  It would be great to hook up some kind of a deal with one of the bigger hotels so we could have non stop car shows in the parking lot all week long. See you all there!!!   Mike

Count me in!  In fact I'll be twisting the arms of some of my fellow MCA board members to go as well.
Just finishing the "makeover" (not restoration) on my 70 Boss 302; I can actually drive this car.

A couple of quick questions:

1. Is it definite, i.e. on the schedule at Norwalk?  If so, can we pre-register?
2. What events are planned besides a car show, i.e. cruise, performance events, etc.
3. Cleveland, OH is a 650 mile drive from me; Norwalk is about the same.  How many of you would drive your Boss that far?

There is no way I will have my Boss 302 Eliminator done by then unless I win the lottery, but think that I might bring my 71 Maverick grabber Boss 302 Drag car to race. how many days do they drag race? maybe they will have a special class for Boss 302 powered cars, than I can drag race and put it in the show.

Starting to make plans for 2011!  I am really excited about the potential for this gathering, you will love Summit, it is a great facility and the staff is really good to work with.  I spoke to the Great Wolf Lodge located in Sandusky (about a 20 min. drive from the track)  They are offereing a room rate of $133 per night.  I'll got a code number soon.  Their rooms will sleep six but if guys are bunking together I suggest three to a room (2 double beds and one pull out)  Great Wolf Lodge is a family facility so there are kids on the property.   I have requested our group to be located on the upper level and in one wing.  That should keep the pitter patter of little feet down to a minimum.  It is a very nice facility and that rate is great for hotel rooms during this time season (July 22, 23, 24) .  If any of you are planning on making it a family weekend, the rate for a room that includes indoor water park passes is $144.   Of course the Summit Motorsports Park offers trackside camping w/electric the rental is only $75 for the weekend and there is also primitive camping $25 for the weekend.  One eatery that you need to put on the schedule is Danny Boys it is fantastic.  For a large group pre arrangements will need to be made.  There is plenty of time to make plans so we need to start talking.  Let me know what you would like to do (on site picnic, trip to Put in the Bay Island, special time runs on the track) Give me some feedback and I will try to make it happen.  We have a year to put together one heck of a gathering.  So lets get started.  Thanks Lisa

Would love to hear ideas of things to do. I liked the BBQ we had at the cars in 2005. You could eat and look at the cars parked nearby.

And BTW, the engine is being installed in my car as I speak ... a few days to driving my Boss 302 again after a 2 year make-over.
