Hi Mark - take a look under Event - Boss Nationals.  130+ cars signed up, quite a few from the Registry will be there.  How about you?

I agree.
BTW, my worthless two cents…
I give an 'A' for effort, yet an 'F' for execution. Let me explain. (Yes, I understand you can't please everyone….) However, by 'only' having this event on the east coast, you just alienated most members who happen to live on the west coast. A much more plausible approach would have been to (as mentioned) combine it with another event, such as the MCA/SAAC/local open track event/show in the central portion of the US. This way, its accessible for both coasts. Maybe next year, this can be arranged. Just me...
Current lifelong projects:
1969 Mustang Fastback/FOX chassis, 6 speed, 4 wheel discs, with a modern Can-Am 494 (Boss 429), Kaase headed, intake mounted with a 1425 cfm 'B' Autolite Inline carb, ala Trans-Am style…Whew!
 
Volvo 1800, being converted to Boss 302 power…coming soon!

We also have the plan to come over from The Netherlands to visit the 2019 BOSS Reunion….

We start our holiday 3 weeks earlier in Miami, Florida and ends at the BOSS Reunion in Pittsburg.

Just got my 2012 Boss LS, and cannot wait to attend this event. I live in Pittsburgh, and Pitt Race is my home track. I have tracked my former GT Mustangs there for many years, and now my 911. It is an outstanding track, very technical in places, and fast on the back stretch. Really cool and coincidental that this event is occurring here, just when I got this car!

Also, just read through all of the threads here. A couple of observations:


First, as to the holding the event at Pitt Race, this is the best location for everyone on this side of the country. There is no good way to hold these things somewhere in the middle, like SD (as somebody suggested). When that happens, the upshot is that hardly anyone can go, as it is too far for either the east coast or west coast crowd. (I lived a number of years in Montana, and it is a really big empty country out in the middle - SD is endlessly empty). Better option is to aternate the event between the coasts, and occassionally in the middle like the Chicago or St Louis areas.

Second, as to the track, it is situated out in the country, and is a large, fenced facility. It is secure, and there is very little activity around it (almost no development). There is wide open space for camping, and many people do. There is tons of room for trailers, and electrical hook ups. All in all, it is a good place to bring your car and leave it there, and stay there too if you want to camp. There are not a lot of hotels real close though. You'll have to drive 20 minutes down the PA Turnpike to Cranberry to get into the bigger hotels.

Third, again as to the track, it is owned by a couple who co-own VIR. So for the guy that suggested Pitt Race isn't a "real track" and we should instead go to VIR, well, come and see it. These owners know what they are doing. It is a 2.8 mile outstanding road course, recently repaved, with excellent elevation changes, a few "blind" rises that'll make your hair stand on end, excellent esses and passing zones, and very good run-off for the more aggressive drivers who like to explore the limits (ask me how I know;-)). Since this track changed ownership several years ago and expanded into the south track, there have been a good number of significant events held there. I've driven Watkins Glen (best of the best), Summit Pouint and others out west, and Pitt Race is as good as any.

This will be a fun event! Looking forward to seeing all the cool Boss'!

Anybody else see the irony in people from Europe and New Zealand booking rooms for the Reunion while Californians complain about it being too far ..........😀

Hello to all. New member making my first post here. My wife and I got our 2012 Boss 302 back in October and we just made our hotel reservations for the reunion.  We are really looking forward to the event and meeting everyone.
