    Better booth arrangement this year.
    Let me guess... the Maseratis will be on the side of the booth facing the Jags... the Ferraris will be on the side of the booth facing Lambo and Panoz... Ford will have a GT on the side adjacent to Ferrari... and then the new Corvette and Cadillac will be on the other side of the Ferrari booth. Cool. I'll definitely be up for a weekday visit... probably Thursday (don't want first day or weekend).

    I'm in too, how about Thursday night the 4th? I leave for CO to ski the morning of the 6th, so Fri is out.

    I can get over that character trait very quickly if placed in the right environment.

    Come on Ken... Could you really pull yourself away from the walk by scenery down there at your office and go all that way out to the boonies... :0)

    Earlier would be better for me, but it doesn't really matter. I'll leave from work and should be there by 6:00 or 6:30. If we meet later, I'll just eat first.

    Should we notify Chet so he can expect us and let us climb on the cars? Or Chet, are you following this thread already?

    As always, the stand will be gated and the vehicles will be locked up (to keep the rif-raf out we presume), but there will be a Quattroporte on the stand that MNA is using for their client preview event. Go to the event website at www.maseratievent.com for more info and to get an invite that will get you into the show for free and arrange a time to view the Quattroporte. We'll have limited presence there, as we do have to keep the store open as well, but there will be representatives from FNA/MNA there. It is primarily a Maserati event this year, but there will be something there for everyone. I will primarily be around in the evenings and on Sunday.

    After last year, there are no presumptions needed. It's gated because it HAS to be! I guess I was just wondering if we can make arrangements to get IN to the gated community on Thursday night. Will you be there then or should we just go to the Maserati site and deluge them with appointments for Thursday?

    I will be there in the evenings, but probably not until 6:00 or 6:30. The factory reps will be letting "select" individuals in to the stand, so there shouldn't be a problem. Let them know who you are with (FCA/Fchat) and they should be kind to you. If not, try to hold out until I arrive.

    So what's going on?
    Are we getting together on 3/5? What time are we meeting at the sight?

    I didn't get Tillman's "bump" mean. You mean something came up?

    BTW, I met Chet in person today, and we met each other from other dealer last year. Surprised he still remembered my name. Very nice young man!

    Thursday is good for me, I don't want to mess with a large weekend crowd though.

    Thursday is still the day. Weather or no weather. Should we meet at the Ferrari booth at 6:30? 7:00?
