Nassam 2019

Now that NASSAM 2017 is over it is time to put serious thought and action into 2019. I will speak from recent experience and say that one year is not enough time to effectively plan this event, so now is the time for a decision to be made.

There are rumors about interest in Georgia and in the Adirondacks. Are those serious considerations, and is anyone else interested in hosting 2019?

Let me stir the pot a little with this: I am putting preliminary plans in motion to repeat in Lexington, so if someone doesn't step up you're going to be stuck with us again!

Heaven forbid! Just kidding you a bit John. I'd tend to agree with you on the "more than a year" aspect. If there is anything I can do to help other than attend, let me know. (As I think on it a bit, Little Miss E will be 10 years old in 2019, and I may be able to miss her birthday party and actually come to a Nationals . . . )

Yes. 2018 is in Colorado, but it is time now for the 2019 planing to get started. Unless there is already a significant framework in place it takes over a year to plan one of these, and two years is certainly better.

Pensacola might be nice; maybe somewhere on the Gulf Coast for once just to tempt The Fates during hurricane season. Try something different for a change. Yes, near sea level flatland roads abound but twisties can be found almost anywhere. Local landmarks and great seafood would be plentiful. Folks in the South ought to step up and get in the driver's seat.

I will be 75 in 2019....that means it MUST BE held in Florida...my OLE Bones. A little mercy. But Georgia On my MIND works. The mind may not.

The Jacksonville Club should run with this...or even Bill Hahn and SKYBABY. They are in Ocala.

I live near Corpus Christ,but the twisties dont start till you get about 200 miles north of here and the seafood, so is Mexican food is here. But the best Mexican food is near Austin, 200miles north of here. Too far away and there is no "Club" superstructure in this area and further, I will be 82 by then. Texas is too spread out from attraction to attraction. Those that live here dont have a problem driving 150 miles RT for dinner, but most people would.

Too many OLD PEOPLE...I may not attend. Cannot look at too many wrinkles, cellulite and bald heads. Did I leave out FAT ASSES and hanging stomachs.

Still one bridge too far for you to visit here?

I am definitely interested in helping if in Adirondacks (or similar area in NY). If people are willing to help to get it in Central NY, which can include runs to the eastern Catskills and Adirondacks, plus track time at Watkins Glen, Finger Lakes wine tours, and visits to the Baseball Hall of Fame... I can look into some nice hotel options. Plus, people that have come to the August Kappa Kruise can drive through the stream again.

Think Asheville NC. You've got the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Cherohala Skyway and (let us pray)the Tail of the Dragon with its 11 miles of 318 curves where horse power means nothing but three hands on the wheel do.

Suggestions for locations are nice, but are fairly worthless unless they come from someone actually interested in organizing the event there.

A very good comment, but in addition to someone interested in organizing the event, you need people who are capable of planning, presenting, and managing a good event. We've been lucky so far with the 12 annual events that have been done, and for the most part, been done very well.

I think we can do away with Tail of the Dragon...
