WOW, this is reasonably close to Philly.
If I still own the car in 2019 maybe I'll plan to go.

Hey guys I really appreciate your effort ---- but there are Mustangs every where in the US. I know you can never please every one but just like the MCA putting almost all of the events on the east coast really eliminates a lot of us. How about a more central location.  Sturgis, SD, Mustang, OK , or ????

Based on all the Reunions we had, Carlisle, Tulsa, Knotts Berry, Dearborn we looked at attendance and cars showing up. Pittsburgh was in between the 2 highest attended events. We knew we couldn’t please everyone. Carlisle was a really close 2nd choice. But no track.

Lisa has been known for doing a really good job and has supported us since the ‘05 event is when we first got to know her. She’ll make it worthwhile for the ones who are able to attend.

We are still open for suggestions for things to do or think about for this event.

I understand you can't please everyone, but being from Seattle, this would be difficult to drive to this location. Having your BOSS Mustang present is an important part of a gathering like this. For the 50th anniversary of the Mustang in 2014, MCA had two events, one on the East coast, one on the West coast. I am sure this is the equivalent of have one migraine vs. having two migraines, but I thought I would post this idea since I know there are a lot of BOSSES in the Western states that will not attend due to Pittsburgh being too far away. The date of 2019 is still far away enough, that finding something for the people out here could be possible. Thanks,    :'(   Mark
   
Mark,
   The thing to do would probably be to have the West Coast Boss reunion at Monterey in conjunction with the Vintage Races at Laguna Seca. A 'Boss only' section in the car corral would be easy, and assuming it wasn't an off year for the Historic Trans Am series, their appearance would be a great draw. The only drawback to the whole thing would be rooms (and the cost).... Heck, it would give me a reason to fly out there in 2019.

Why not have it at a real road course?  Virginia International Raceway is a great place and the SVT Cobra Club has an event there in April 2019?

That’s a pretty good trip from Texas. I’ll have to work on it.

Thank you for your efforts and reaching a decision.
Now it is up to us to participate and make the Reunion a success.
Tough to please everyone when we are spread out over a continent. It sounds like there is enough interest from people in the west to have their own show. I hope that could happen as I would certainly consider attending it as well if the dates did not conflict.

Certainly understand the concern of distance and expense from the west coast, perhaps coming without the car and flying into Pittsburg would be a next best option.  As for the Pittsburg Race track I think everyone will find that facility to be top notch.  Auto Interests is a really nice group to work with and they are being very accommodating.  We already have a confirmation to be allowed to do a Boss only Parade lap on the track.  A group photo is a must.   It was important to set a date and location so final plans can be made and everyone can start making arrangements for their personal schedules.  Looking forward to a great turnout.  Thanks for your comments.

Too far from Seattle to take the B2. Might fly out though.

Lisa and I thought it important to have a date set about 2 years out. SAAC doesn’t always have plans set this far out. This making it hard to coincide with them.

This was to help owners finish cars that might be in the middle of a restoration.

It also helps in ideas and plans giving lots of time to adjust.
