Milwaukee Concourse - Club Saturday

So who here is going?

FCNA Midwest has a drive scheduled for Saturday morning (August 5) and a noonish arrival at the Milwaukee show on the lake.

Anyone here attending?

If I recall correctly there will be about 25 Ferraris at the show. I know some of them are on fchat but they rarely sign on and even more rarely look at the WI section.

I'll be there rain or shine. We will be parked in class 700, the class name is Brew City Cruise Night. There are 4 Astons signed up, and there will be 10-15 other cars in our group.

I talked to one of the show organizers last night and there are slightly more than 200 cars signed up in advance. They expect quite a few to sign up the morning of the show, as well, especially if the weather forecast is nice.

I didn't have a chance to look for you, did you make it? There were so many cars there and people I knew that I barely had an opportunity to spend much time in any one place.

Same thing with me. We were on the run the whole time. I never even put my registration card on the dash!.

27 Ferrari's on the drive and the ride into the show. Great weather. Awesome drive.

Hell, we were so all in and running I didn't even take any pictures. Geeez.

There were five or six 355's. I was the only F1 355 there. Huh.

Good show though right?

I thought it was a great show and a beautiful day. Nearly 400 cars, most of them interesting. I took one picture, just of the group I was there with.

I got a nice ding in my Aston from a stone or some other road debris on the drive home. Luckily my paintless dent repair buddy was able to fix it perfectly today. Truly a miracle worker.

That old shack?

The place was as inviting and warm as the owners. Great people and a fun day.

I have some drone footage of the Ferraris!

Wish I would've checked here first to know who was going so I could me you.

I was the only one that missed the rest stop I was being distracted by my misinformed navigator. oh well.

Still had a GREAT time.
