    Friday the 13th (Concours weekend in Monterey) we will be holding a dinner for all Ferrarichatters. Due to size limitations we will probably need to cap the dinner at 60 people, so if you find out you cant go afterall PLEASE let me know asap so we can fill up your spot with another person in line.

    Here is the preliminary information so far (subject to minor changes)
    Location: Baja Cantina http://www.carmelvalleycalifornia.com/baja.html
    Date: 8/13/04
    Time: Around 6pm
    Cost: Around $30

    To Sign up, please fill out this form!
    http://ferrarichat.com/events/2004Monterey/signup.htm

    If anyone wants to help create a name tag for people to wear that would be great. I have no problem with buying a bunch of "Hello my name is..." name tags but I figure a Ferrarichat themed one would be more interesting. If you have any ideas, post them here and maybe we can take a vote on which one is the best.

    Looks like an appropriate spot!! Great choice.

    Will there be safe reserved parking for those of us in Ferraris?

    I just signed up for the dinner! I hope that two guys (me and my brother) from The Netherlands are welcome ;) ;) ;)

    I already booked the flight, the car and the hotels in the area of Monterey, and will soon buy the tickets for the Concorso, Pebble and Laguna. But can someone please show me what the most interesting and current threads are on FerrariChat about this meeting and the dinner? Thanks in advance!

    Absolutely! I look forward to meeting you in person.


    This is the thread on the FerrariChat meeting/dinner. The only other of note is the meeting planning thread that is in the Rossa forum which adds a few testimonials.

    It being early in the week, I imagine we'll be able to plan places to hook-up at the other events over dinner.

    Awesome. Mail.

    Hey, Jordan, i was thinking about that whole name tag thing and you're right - i don't think most of us want to wear them... However, for a few bucks, i can just go to a local store and have my name printed on a t-shirt; i think that's the way to go for this - at least for me...

    ...this way, people aren't calling me Carmen the whole time i'm up there... :)

    :D

    You realize, after the dinner and pictures start flying on fchat, any pic of you with a tshirt will be more ammo for our resident photoshop council.

    I'm just looking out for you, buddy!

    Brian, Wayne, NNO, Chiaro and all others, it would be very interesting to meet all of you in Monterey! I'm really looking forward to it .....

    Brian, please let me know if there are any really interesting things in the Rosso forum discussion about Monterey. Although I have plans to subscribe, I still haven't done that yet. One reason is that I sometimes need to "limit" my time on FerrariChat and my own mailing lists ;)

    Grtx, Edvar

    In that case, I'll just give you the summary... everyone who's visited our meeting spot had great things to say about it... its a car-guy place... they have a car event every Thursday even!

    As far as broader Monterey topics, a search in this forum on "Monterey" will yield a dozen threads on various topics. Lots to read about... but in the end, the event websites have the most concentrated info...

    www.concorso.com
    www.montereyhistoric.com
    www.pebblebeachconcours.com (just recently updated, BTW... flashy)
    www.fca2004.com
    www.rmauctions.com/events/MO04.cfm (the auction at the FCA host hotel)

    If you have specific questions, I'll be glad to field them...

    Jordan, maybe it's just how hard the restaurant in Indy was to find, but we only had 20 of 35 signed up attend. I think you will at least have 25% no shows, but maybe more. Everyone has good intentions, but once you start doing the events all day, then you get tired and side tracked.

    Should we be expecting a confirmation email or pm that we are signed up? I signed up for two and haven't heard a thing.

    thanks for doing the work to make a great evening.

    Jordan, let me know a final count when you have it so I can get the t-shirts ordered.

    Thanks.

    We were over 60 the day Jordan left. He has sole access to the list and will not be back until the week after next. Parking is looking like 1st come 1st served. She told me that we will more than likely have 1/2 to 3/4 of the back lot reserved for us....30-45 spots.

    Thanks!

    The count right now is about 75 people!

    I figure we will have another week or two of open sign ups before we need to finalize the count with the restraunt.

    As far as a confirmation e-mail, I will send that to everyone on the list once sign ups are closed. The e-mail will give you some more information on price, location, etc...

    ccr2002, dont worry, Ive got you down!
