    Hadn't been to a car show of any kind in quite a while, so I had a great time on Saturday! Great job as always, Kevin; it feels like each year draws a better and better turnout, and this year was simply staggering. Special thanks to Duncan for giving me the chance to drive my first Ferrari!

    Greetings and thanks for the early interest! We traditionally hold this event on the last Saturday of March so we are looking at 3/28 for this year. Not "set in stone" just yet, but highly probable. Hope to have you join us! - Kevin
