C&G Gathering @ the All-GM Nationals, Carlisle, PA

66 posts in this topic

Alright, so the big All-GM Nationals show at the Carlisle Fairgrounds in Carlisle, PA is coming up on June 20-22. In The O.C.'s post, I mentioned that Camino and I previously talked about getting a C&G Gathering together there in 2008. I have yet to speak with him about it further at this point, but this post is to gauge interest among those of you who'd like to travel to Central Pennsylvannia to attend this awesome show and be part of a much larger C&G gathering than what's occured anywhere else to date.

As I mentioned already, if we have 25 GM cars/trucks register as a "car club", we'd receive reduced admissions costs, get to park inside of the show/on the show fields all together, and get the free use of a 20'x20' tent. So I know I'd bring one of my daily-driver GM vehicles (I don't have a show car, so what I drive will be cleaned up for display!), and Camino would probably do the same with one of his GM vehicles - now we just need 23 more members here to committ (but not quite fully yet). There are still more details that have to be worked out, and like I've stated, Camino and I have yet to talk about this in any more detail.

At this point, if you're in the position to say that you are likely to participate in the C&G Gathering, post here so we can see the interest level that we have. If all goes well, I will see about getting a t-shirt designed and printed up to commemorate this event, and maybe even a banner that could be used at any C&G gathering around the country (assuming that those members in charge would pay shipping costs).

Post away! :thumbsup:

I don't have plans that far out and I'm only 4 hours away..... 3.5 if I unleash the power of this fully armed and operational battle wagon!

Ouch, I won't know until sometime in June if I can go to the Carlisle meet up or not. My final exams are June 19-21st, depending on the class. And it seems like I have a Saturday exam every semester, and Carlisle is an 8.25 hour trip from Flint, plus stopping by home to drop off all my stuff from school.

Carpool?

Dude, I have no idea. I might be co-op'ing in SC next term, that's still up in the air. If I am, then I don't know if I'll want to drive to PA, then back, then back to SC within a week of each other lawlz

You can always beg :P, or ride with 68 in his Buick.

Count me in, as of such I do not have any plans.

If work and finances permit, I'd love to make the trip with the girl in the Suburban; I'm always up for a road trip and it seems like a great time!

Well, I would definitely be going solo. I can't get the BF to go the auto show in Toronto here. But I guess an Optra 5 would be an impressive sight down there, considering you guys never got the privilege :rolleyes: of getting them down there.

Sacrifice from esteemed members like you will keep this community close knit and special. You should probably walk there to be the Flag Bearer of :CG_all: and send the message. And don't come naked!!

What you you all rather have? A Mopar otr a Toyota with a Chevy badge on it there? :P

I don't think his Buick would be road worthy for the trip, I'd expect if he drives it would be the Banana Boat.

Hey XP, we could carpool :P

There shouldn't be any reason I am not able to go down this time, so you can prematurely count me in.

Completely intentional. :P

I don't know about Carlisle, but there's a nifty little airport not far from Brookville. Just think, you could meet little ol' me. I'm sure you'd never be happier.

I told that stink Borger to come and bring his husband Carl-Peter so he can see some cool GM cars for a change, not the dull appliances he peddles in Europe. :AH-HA_wink:

Well, I'm sure Harrisburg has an airport, and it's not that far to Carlisle from there (I'd estimate about half an hour driving time).

Question: I'm guessing my car wouldn't count towards the 25? Also would it not be allowed in the tent?

No, I'm sure it wouldn't since it's not a "GM vehicle". However, bring the Prizm and your problem is solved! :thumbsup:

Again, what I want to know is who would be interested in bringing their GM vehicle onto the show field as part of the C&G Club? You're vehicle will not be judged, it's just so the whole club can park together and be in one location. We'd get the tent free if we have 25 people register their cars/trucks. That's what I need to know right now (if you'd be willing to pay to put your car in the show). The cost of this registration, including admission for 2 people, woule be around $30. Parking in the Carlisle lots or on the side streets can cost between $5-$15, and I believe admission per person is around $10 - so it's definitely a bargain.
