Exclamation 2nd Annual Saleens Invade San Antonio - October 22nd - 24th

I wanted to get this posted in order to start the discussions and to grow the building excitement of this event !!!!!

2nd Annual Saleen’s Invade San Antonio - October 22nd -24th

This event will include: Cookouts, Saturday Cruise through the Hill County, and the Biggest Show in San Antonio on Sunday. Last year it pulled 500+ cars.

Out of all the Saleen owners I have spoke to, this is the Can’t miss Event in Texas !!

More Details will follow. But wanted to get this one to you ASAP. So people can start blocking out the time on their calenders. Below is the link to the show and it’s registration.

http://www.samustang.com/2010_carshow.htm

We had so many Saleens last year we took all the Trophys from the Roush’s. So they gave us our own class this year just for us Saleens !!! LMAO They threw the Roush’s in a class w/ Steeda & GT 500’s – LMAO again !!!

Please let me know if you are intrested and I will PM you the contact's info that is heading this event up.

So just to give you a heads up:

In less than a week of posting this. We already have 7 confirmed Saleens. And people are already getting rooms booked at the LaQuinta Inn in Boerne, TX - just minutes from our meeting location / HQ.

There will be three wives going so far as well. So feel free to bring your significant others and have a relaxing couple days off.

So far I have Saleens Coming from San Antonio, Austin, Houston, and Dallas. !!!

* Once again besure to let me know, when you guys decide to attend so we can make sure we have enough food and accommodations avalaible.

The Saturday Schedule so far is not final, but it will look something like so...

After Breakfast at the Bourne House. We will head out for the Hill Country Cruise. Durring the Cruise we will stop at a couple sites along the way and have lunch and a specific destination. After that we finish up the cruise, ending back at the Bourne House. Afterwards, we will will realx with some drink and some BBQ. Sunday will be the show details.

I think the registration is $25, but if you don't want to enter the car for judging, but still want to park next to the other Saleens. I am pretty sure you can park it next to us and never make your way to the registration table - Good Idea - huh !!??

Thumbs up

Alright Guys - people are starting to head out today for tonight, and this weekends activities !! Tonight we will all meet at Chad's House and chill at a place in town.

The Houston Caravan is meeting at the Cinemark theater in Katy at I-10 and Grand Parkway (99) at 2:30 for a 3:00 sharp departure. Let me advise that there are some steep driveways at the theater, so take caution.

All of the Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas Saleens will be meeting up at the house independently.

Please contact me if you need any info in getting directions, or event times/locations

512-773-3016 - Chris

Unhappy Sad days

I unfortunatly will not beable to attend this weekends events anymore. I took my extreme out for a spin and a car in front of me spit out a rock and took out me front driver side rim. I'm getting the rim repaired right now. Just sucks that it happened so close to this event and car show. I will have the rim back on monday, SUCKS!

The link below will show you pics of most of the cars that were on the cruise - It was from some guy that had his website posted up and snapped shots of us as we drove by. Pretty cool idea - Chris
