Looks like I may have a free weekend coming up, better look into this! Wow still hotel rooms left at Best Western too. 153.00 a night, decent considering the airshow is on. Looks like a 10 hour drive from Golden.

If possible,could you make it to Calgary next Thursday night and drive up with at least 4 from here? Hopefully pick up a few more in Red Deer and meet at the Flying J in Northeast Edmonton for 9:00/9:30.

There are still rooms available at the Imperial Inn for $79/night. You need to register with me and I'll give you the details. If we got more than 10 booking there it will be $69/night. They have done some upgrades there including security cameras and freshly paving the parking lot. We also had a cancellation at the Marriott hotel. Not sure if that room is still available.

I'll send an email to all those registered this weekend with further info. One question I've had is if the Saturday night buffet dinner is open to all ages with the bar open. I confirmed with the Ag Society and the answer is yes - all ages welcome.

Some model year Corvette's coming (from memory) - '57, '61, '63, '64, '66, '69, '70, '71, '72, '73, '74, 3x '75's, '76, 3x '77's, '80, 2x '82's, '95, '98, '00, 4x '08's '12, 2x '13's '14, '15, '16, 6x '17's and a Carbon 65. Yes, I remember more of the older ones than newer ones. We also have many other cars coming including exotics, classics, some bikes and the odd custom build. 105 cars registered with approx 55 Corvette's. Most cars will be parked outside as only 40 can fit in the half of the hangar allocated to the car show. I'll look at the list this week to determine who will go inside. Expect many of the older ones to go inside.

The gentleman in Edmonton with the unrestored original 1954 is wanting to come but needs someone to trailer the car in an enclosed car hauler. Two individuals came forward in Cold Lake offering their enclosed trailers for use, but only one driver with his one ton came forward. This driver who initially offered got called back to work up north next week and then goes for surgury on the following Monday. For the 1954 Corvette, I'm still holding his spot. We would love to see this car as part of our event and would look great displayed with the Carbon 65.

These are really impressive numbers Grant. Looks like an excellent representation of all years. Im looking forward to staring at at those 76s as that’s where it all began for me. Hopefully it’s a blue one as it was back in 79 when I got the bug. I’m curious if I’m the only 07 signed up? I don’t see any 07s. :oops: Next Friday can’t come quick enough.

The 76 is metallic silver with red interior. it has a '79 - 80 style spoiler bumper and has aftermarket 5- spoke wheels, dual exhaust with long - tube headers on a 400ci engine. I stopped and checked out their car on Canada Day and gave them an application. The car has some slight front end damage and with their invite to the show they put it in the body shop right away to get it fixed.

I'll check my list to see what other 07's we have at the office later today.

Oh no worries Grant. It’s not important. I’d be quite content to be the sole rep for model year 07 !! :p Hopefully someone steps up for that 54 though. That’ll be an eye catcher for sure.

Great lineup Grant!

I hope I didn't miss the info (was doing some speed reading - my apologies) - but I have Corvette owners asking about Air Show tickets and if they need to purchase them for both days?

Also, do we need to RSVP for the dinner? My wife and I will be attending, but others are asking about it who aren't online as much as the rest of us.

Thanks and looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend!

Let’s hope this weather forecast for the weekend changes. The temps are perfect for airshow activities mind you. Certainly wouldn’t want to be standing in a field or cooking on the ramp area on a day like today.

The Weathernetwork is showing 40% chance on Saturday and 30% on Sunday (For Rain/Thunderstorm). Hopefully it holds off, especially on Friday - or I may need to trailer my car to the Base.
