College Park tuning car Meet canceled!

I'm sorry to inform everyone that the University of Maryland's College Park tuning Meet that was supposed to be happening today, Sunday May 1st at Fedex Field, has been canceled. Due to insufficient insurance coverage, the organizers will not be allowed to hold the event at Fedex Field. This is very unfortunate, since the meet was supposed to benefit Martha's Table. It's a great organization that provides food, clothing, and learning resources for those of us who are less fortunate. I hope everyone will make a donation regardless. Hopefully the organizers will not have this problem next year, and will be able to raise the proper funds for insurance coverage.

Reserving Space
The people have spoken and if you want to reserve space for your club or group you need to contact the organizer ASAP and give them an approximate head count by April 22nd. If you want to have a tent for your group there is a fee associated with that (Fedex's fee, not mine). If you put up a tent and don't pay this fee you will have to take it down.

Spring Carlisle, April 27th – May 1st

Spring is officially upon us, and that means the season for car shows is just getting started.  For the gearhead, hot-rodder, car collector, tuner, and motorcyclist there is only one place to go during the Spring and Summer…. Carlisle, PA! The shows at Carlisle are like no other and people from all over the country (and other countries) go to attend the shows.  At the upcoming Spring Carlisle Collector Car Swap Meet & Corral there will be plenty of good motoring fun.  There will be vendors selling all sorts of parts, tools, equipment, accessories, and anything automotive.  There will be car auctions, people selling cars, swap meets, competitions etc.  To truly understand Carlisle…. you need to go there and experience it yourself!  Definitely put this on your calendar.

Spring Carlisle, the opening to the season, got started today is coming up. If you are a car guy or gal and have never been… you really must go.  You might even want to plan to go for more than one day.  To walk everything, as in the all the infields and manufactures midway,  it's about 15 miles.  Not an easy 15 miles of walking either as it's crowded with people.  You won't believe everything you will see and find.  Maybe I will see you there if I get a chance to go.

 

Spring Carlisle Collector Car Swap Meet & Corral

April 27 – May 1

Adult Admission: Wednesday – Saturday $10, Sunday $5

Times: Wed-Sat 7am – 6pm, Sunday 7am – 3pm
