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 ..........😀

It’s very hard to pick a location that suites everyone. But you have to pick one and stick with it.

  • Paying the cost of being the Boss ...
Was hoping that the date would have changed so it didn't conflict with the MCA Grand National Show in Fredericksburg, VA.
Haven't seen an update from the original poster since November 2017.

Could we get an update?

Boss Reunion 2019 Registration is now active.  The BOSS Reunion web site will provide the event schedule along with registration and pricing.  Boss Registration page allows you to register for the BOSS specific activities. CarFest Registration is where you go to register for non-Boss specific activities such as the HPDE, Karting, Flashlight drags and more.
Pre-registration is important it will help Randy and myself properly prepare and coordinate the event activities.  Thank you, we look forward to seeing you in August.  Here is the web site link

We just sent an email newsletter out - reminder to pre-register.  Just in case you are not on our list here is some of the information that you will need to know. 

BOSS car show display - All vehicles that get pre-registered will receive a Boss dog tag and a 9 x 12 Participation Plaque.  Cutoff date is June 20th.  Register on line at www.BossReunion.com

Sunday Auto X - we need 50 pre-registered by May 10th.  If we don't hit the 50 pre-registered we will still have the activity and Boss specific awards - but there will be other cars running in the group.  I think once registration opens to all it will fill.  So if you want to run don't wait till you arrive.
Thanks

Just want to make sure everyone knows the pre-registration cutoff date is June 20th.  Pre-registration gets you the Boss dog tags and the Boss PARTICIPANT plaque.  Cars can register after that date but the two goodies mentioned will only go to those pre-registered.  Also when on the BossReunion.com site you will see that the paid truck trailer parking is sold out.  There is however room to park truck and trailers in the General Admission area.  That area is outside the main entrance,  you will need to unload at that point and drive the Boss into the event.  Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  Thanks, looking forward to meeting everyone.  CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF BOSS!

After talking it over with lisa we decided to have a judged original survivor class added to the concours event since we have some room under the tent. So if u have a  unrestored boss mustang or cougar u can get a 50th reunion award. Your car dont have to be 100% original yet just a good unrestored survivor with most of its paint & some parts missing tires etc. The more original the car is the higher the award. This is how u learn from the unmolested cars to document if u are doing a concours restoration so bring your cameras & bring those great 50 year old cars out for this historic once in a lifetime reunion. This is a long holiday weekend so an extra day to travel.

Joey F will be bringing his low mile 69 boss 429 KK1259 the ford shop tips car that had changes done by ford to perform better but still a unrestored car. Would like to get more unrestored bosses for this group so anybody know somebody where any other unrestored bosses are?
