Not sure if it will be a scheduled event, but as there will be plenty of free time, I'm sure there will be several excursions.

Oh, and on Wednesday night, there's a barbecue; there will be live music provided by the Monday night jammers from the local dulcimer shop. Should be around twelve participants - dulcimers, hammered dulcimers, fiddles, upright bass, guitars, banjos, concertinas, bodhran (Celtic drum) etc. I'm in with guitar and banjo. Gonna be fun!

hmmm - would a 1958 Rambler (with Flash-O-Matic!) from Connecticut be allowed?

I am in the beginning process of putting together a 74.5 BGT with a 215 Olds engine. I think I can come out and play this year just without the MG. I would like to see how other builds look and sound. I am open to any cool ideas and advice at this point.

Here ya go - I took a few, as I was pretty busy during the week; there are others on this thread, and more to be posted later. Weather's been really nice, and our show this weekend promises to have even better conditions!

Mickey- As I was just folding the laundry from the dryer, my 2013 "Springtime" T-shirt came to hand. It brought back thoughts of what a really nice place Townsend is, and we hope your retirement there is exceeding expectations!

Hi, Dale!

Yep, Townsend is fantastic! Couldn't have picked a better place to retire.
