Long event announcement that showed up in one of my mail groups, if you follow it all the way down it begins to makes sense, maybe... If you live in the Los Angeles area (I think that's where the Rose Bowl is) it sounds like a fun touring event, before you read this one keep in mind that only pre-1976 cars are allowed but it will be an all-makes driving tour.

Here goes...

SIXTH ANNUAL NO FRILLS IRON BOTTOM MOTORING TOUR:
SIXTY DAY NOTICE

Some last minute information:

The only way we have to communicate with
participants is via e-mail (epas356@aol.com). If you know anyone who should be on our contact list ask them to send an e-mail and put NFIBMT on the subject line.

With the publicity we got in the January 2004 issue of “Automobile” we expect a record turn out. Plan to arrive early 7:00AM. Get signed in,
get your tour book, and be ready to go. We will leave at 7:30 A.M. Thursday April 8, 2004.

Remember this event is free so the “disorganizers” have no incentive to wait for you if you are late. If you miss the start we will be having lunch at the In N Out Burger in Atascadero.

Be ready to make your reservation for our NEW EVENT, the all hands dinner in Paso Robles, on Friday night. The price is $23 per person, this includes tax tip and non alcoholic drinks. Bring cash and bring exact change. Your disorganizers have not figured out how to squeeze a cash register into a two passenger car, on top of that we are numerically challenged. Capacity of the dining room is eighty. So only the first eighty
people who pay will be admitted.

See you at the Rose Bowl early on April 8th.

PLEASE COPY THIS NOTICE AND POST IT WHERE GEARHEADS WILL SEE IT. THERE ARE NO FORMAL ANNOUNCEMENTS OUR ADVERTISING IS RESTRICTED TO WORD OF MOUTH

OUR MOTTO: NON CRANIUS INVERTUS RECTUMUS


Why This is a No Frills Event and What you
need to Know

WE PASS THROUGH AN ACTIVE MILITARY INSTALLATION BRING DRIVERS LICENSE, REGISTRATION AND PROOF OF CURRENT INSURANCE OR YOU WONT BE ALLOWED ON THE POST. An alternate route will be provided

BRING A MAP: Auto Club California Map is
adequate. A Thomas Bros. “California Road Atlas” published before Thomas Bros became part of Rand McNally, is the best map to carry. Don’t run out and buy the current edition, it no longer includes many of our beloved back roads. They call that progress.

BRING A NAME TAG: From the office, your car club, Rotary, Kiwanis, whatever. We would like to call each other by name. If you yell “hey dummy,” in
a crowd of vintage car owners, everyone turns around.

Carry a cell phone. If you break down you
are on your own. Other participants may stop and offer help, because they are fellow gear heads. However: YOU ARE ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN CAR
