968 Celebration at Hershey 2010

Spring is coming and so is the Hershey Swap Meet…our annual chance to gather, gab, and engorge on chocolate and fun in Hershey, PA.

This year's event will be held RAIN or SHINE from Friday, April 23rd, through Sunday, April 25th, to give you more events and more opportunities to meet and visit with your 968 friends.

The atmosphere will be very casual and relaxed.

Friday – April 23, 2010

Meet at the Hilton Gardens Inn – Hershey

550 East Main Street

Hummelstown, PA 17055

(717) 566-9292

A block of rooms are available for both Friday and Saturday night at $139 per night (plus sales and occupancy tax).

Be sure to tell them you are with "968 Celebration" to get the special rate.

This Rate EXPIRES on March 24, 2010

The hotel will provide a hose and water on Friday afternoon so that you will be able to rinse and shine at the hotel.

The parking lot will have a special corral marked off with cones so that the cars are not disturbed.

Special Event Added !

RS Barn and Design1Racing have generously offered to host a wine and cheese reception.
While I'm certain that there will be enough for everyone, I also know that we have a number of winies (wino's?) in our midst and if you would like to share a special bottle please feel free, we'd be happy to drink more . Details/location to follow.

There will be no organized group dinner on Friday evening. Everyone is encouraged to mingle and meet. We will have some recommendations for dining.

Saturday – April 24, 2010

8:00 AM SHARP!!!: Leave from Hilton Gardens Inn at to caravan to the Hershey Swap Meet.

Jim Groelinger, PCA 968 Register co-advocate, will be collecting $10.00 CASH before we leave the hotel and will pay for our group to be parked in the concours area at the swap meet. If you do not drive in with the group, please join us in the concours area when you arrive (you will need to pay the $10 fee yourself at the gate). Please note, if you want your car to be judged as part of the concours, you will need to register your car and pay an additional $10 Fee.

On the other hand, if you want to win a prize, but don't want to be judged in the concours we will be giving out awards to 968s only on Saturday night. The awards will be people's choice and you don't need to do anything to enter, just show up at the special parking area and let your peers decide.

We will, as always have a tailgate party at the Swap Meet, headed by Kathy Downs (our perennial party favorite). It helps a lot if everyone brings some type of food to share....munchies, store bought food, whatever. Please bring your chairs or blankets, sunscreen, and a food item and/or beverage to share (if it needs to be refrigerated, you need to have a cooler). Kathy will supply basic sandwich fixin's (bread/rolls, selection of lunch meats and cheese, condiments, etc.). Suggestions: pasta or potato salad, veggies, salsa/chips, watermelon, desserts.

Dinner – Saturday, April 24, 2010 7:30 PM

Fenicci's Restaurant

102 West Chocolate Avenue

Hershey, PA 17033

Fenicci's will be serving a family style dinner of their best Italian specialties, including Appetizer, Pasta, salad, and Entrée, with soft drinks included, for an all-inclusive price of $27.00/person.

Sunday – April 25, 2010

9:00 AM: Meet in the parking lot at Hilton Gardens Inn for a fun run in the beautiful countryside around Hershey. This event will be sponsored by 968Forums and will not be connected with, sponsored by, or have any relationship to, PCA or any chapter of PCA.

968Forums will sponsor a lunch at the end of the run. The timing is expected to allow most participants to make their way home before sunset.

Once again, if you can't disagree without resorting to personal attacks (for which you've gotten some timeouts on Rennlist), it usually means you can't support your argument logically. We all had a wonderful community back in the 'old' days, with big turnouts at the 968 Celebration. Don did a great job, Ray S was able to attend, and everyone got along. I'd like to see it get back there.
You further prove my point with lies. I have never been given a "timeout" on Rennlist for personal attacks. Thanks for playing.

It is obvious to anyone who reads this that you are subliminally starting trouble with attempts to get a rise out of people. Move on and leave the past alone. As i said, this is no place for it. This is a reborn sight, let it start fresh without the drama.
You've not received temporary bans on RL? You have, twice. The moderators call it a timeout. Me, with a lot more time on RL never have been on the receiving end of one. You see when you're banned on RL, your sidebar information has it listed in red, for all to see that you're spending some time facing the corner.
I've have been given 2 timeouts. That is correct. However you know and i both know what they were for. And they were not for personal attacks. As i said, lies....which further prove my point.

I've stated this isnt the place for this type of behavior, as it a fresh sight. Now i'm going to ask you, please cut out the immature behavior which has zero to do with this topic. Please quit derailing the thread. Please leave it alone, let go of the past and look forward to a bright future. Let it go and quit acting childish.
There really is no drama. There was some confusion it seems in regards to one aspect of this great event and that has been cleared up. No need for anyone else to get involved or be concerned.
We are all set with the event and it is looking to be a good one. the event team has been working hard to make this a fun event, not a copy of previous events, and it is going to be great. If you have any questions just let one of the organizers know (Jay, Darryl, Kathy, Jim, or myself). We are doing a headcount now so if you haven't told anyone that you are coming let us know so we can let the parking guy know and he'll size accordingly.
Let's see, in a post where you're asking me to tone down you also call me a liar, immature, and childish!
You lied, and you continue to derail the thread bringing up the past in an attempt to get a rise out of certain people. I'd call that immature & childish.

Now please stop it.
Ray, is there an 'ignore' feature on .net?
Yes, please let us ignore Damian. His rants and personal gripes are getting old and have nothing due with 968's.
Kumbaya to you too! :)
back to the event discussion, Aaron will be there with his one of two 92 cassis red metallic cab with full leather interior!!! Oh man, it is killing me not to see it!!!
