Updates are posted here on 2018

Naassm 2018 **update** - Pontiac Solstice Forum

Website is up and running. Does not yet handle weekend reservations. Jim is looking into that. For now if you want weekend days, call the hotel and get them to add to your weekly reservation. Draft schedule is up for your viewing pleasure. Still in work and still accepting suggestions and requests.

https://www.nassam2018.com/

Also have created our own YouTube channel
https://www.nassam2018.com/

Will be sharing videos of pre-runs for cruises over the coming months so you can better anticipate what to see and select your activities.

We are investing as much effort into creating hotel based events as cruises. We recognize that many (maybe most) attendees choose to go on a run and then take some time off back at the hotel. We have events planned from cars and coffee in the morning through movies and dancing on the roof under the stars. S'mores around the campfire is also on the list.

We are also planning on bringing the Punisher Garage Day to the roof parking at the hotel and will be offering to do professional details for attendees cars as part of detailing training. And we are bringing the lift so we can do maintenance training for everyone while inspecting / working on a volunteer's car. These will run daily at different times so we can keep the class sizes manageable and make sure that everyone who wants to participate has a chance to do so.

We are doing our best to keep current with questions or input on the Facebook page but if you prefer to share here, that is fine as well. Or just PM me and I will do my best to be responsive.

Registration is underway. We will begin publishing metrics in a week or so. The site is working well. If you are planning on attending, early registration will assure you the best hotel rates.

There are several points of interest that are close to the Ameristar. Here are a few we are planning on providing on our cruise list.

Evergreen Colorado is a small mountain community that has shopping, sight seeing and multiple eating opportunities. The drive to get there is also a favorite with drivers and photographers.






The Shelby American Collection is a National level museum located in Boulder Colorado





Buffalo Bill is buried near Golden and the road to his resting place is a local favorite.





Mt Evans is a great cruise. If the weather performs as usual the highest paved road in CONUS will be open to us for a half day trip to the top. We are working with our event photographer to set up opportunities for some great pictures of you and / or your car at the summit. We are also testing an option to take video of your car traversing one of the most breathtaking portions of the road to the top.






We are planning dinner cruises to Idaho Springs. But they also offer shopping, site seeing, a mine tour and a Zip line.



Some of the food









Tommyknockers is a destination brew pub with lots of great food and BEER

Event badges are going to be mailed to all who registered starting next week. For anyone who wants to purchase a patch, either in addition to your registration patch or just because you admire the wonderful artwork, we are going to add a link to the 2018 website that will allow you to purchase patches directly. Our webmaster needs some time to create the update but its coming.

I am updating the registration list and I have everyone's mailing address. So what I am going to do this weekend is start mailing out patches to all who have registered. Jim the younger our webmaster will be adding a button on the 2018 webpage to allow people to buy additional patches if they wish.

Looks like things are going well Rob. Keep up the good work guys. Anxious to attend this event.

Robo and I have discussed doing a Regional event in 2020, nothing finalized at this point.

I would very much like to attend, though I have no idea what my availability will be next June.

Hell, I don't even know what my schedule is like for this weekend.

Jim the Younger, owner of the Captain America Sky, brought his video equipment to garage day yesterday and put together a short video of the event. Thought you might enjoy. This was an "unscheduled" event brought about by popular demand. At our scheduled events we get about three times as many cars but a lot more socialization goes on. This GD was mostly about working on the cars.

We received a request to find out if anyone planning on attending wants to share the cost of a hotel room. Several registrants are attending without a guest and this creates opportunities for them to share a room if that is their desire. If you do want to share a room, let me know here and I will do my best to match you up with another member.

Well, ok...

I'm not sure you'd find anything of interest though. Mechanically my car is completely stock.

Maybe you are thinking of someone else?

Just because its unmodified does not mean there are not interesting things to find.
