Default 6th Annual Gullo Ford Weekend May 8-10, Conroe (Houston area) TX!!

**RESCHEDULED FROM APRIL 10-12 DUE TO WEATHER**

Hey Saleen-fiends, whose ready to start getting out with your fellow Saleen-brethren this year? Our usual kick-off, as will be again this year, is the Gullo 6th Annual All-Ford Car Show, hosted by the Northside Mustang Car Club on May 9. Located at Gullo Ford in Conroe, TX, NMCC and the great folks at Gullo pull out the stops to make this a great event.

This year will include trophys for 1st and 2nd place in many categories. Gullo is providing free burgers and sodas as has been their generous history. The show will run from 9am to 4pm. Registration cuts off at noon and is $25. Gullo Ford is located at 925 I-45 North in Conroe, Tx on the north side of Houston.

This has traditionally been the big event for the Houston area for the year, normally drawing over 20 fine Saleens from all over the state. This year we’re bringing back the multi-day/multi-event concept called the Gullo Ford Weekend! We will have organized dinners, a piney-woods cruise, and possibly other events.

This years event is going to follow the same format of the GFWs in the past with a fun-filled itinerary (Apr 10-12):

Friday Nite: Meet and greet Dinner
Saturday: Gullo All-Ford Car Show
Saturday Nite: Drinks and Dinner
Sunday: Piney Woods Cruise/Fantastic Gullo Museum Tour

Our great host hotel for the 2013 Nationals, the Holiday Inn Express in Conroe, will once again host us for our Gullo Ford Weekend!
For reservations call 936-788-5200.
We've got a block of rooms, both Queen doubles, and Kings, for $104.95/night.
Our reservation code is "SALEENCLUB"
They feature a great complimentary breakfast.
The hotel is located just up the freeway from Gullo Ford so it will be convenient to everything, including excellent dining options.
It's located at 2240 Stoneside, Conroe, TX 77303

A great event deserves a great flyer....

Big thanks to Scott for putting together a beautiful flyer for this years event! (See attached)

Scott's heading over on Saturday morning from the Austin area and offered to lead a group over:
"I'll be going to Houston from Round Rock on Saturday morning...if anyone wants to drive with me we can do that. It will be early. I'll post up details when I get them."

Anybody else willing to lead groups in, either Friday or Saturday? Let me know and I'll get the word out.

Friends,
In less than 2 weeks, the rescheduled first big Saleen event for the year in Texas is back on!
This is Houston's big event for the year and one of several must-do events for Saleen owners in Texas.

The agenda for the weekend long event is the same as before, with exception of the Gullo Museum tour as previously announced:

Friday Nite: Meet and greet Dinner
Saturday: Gullo All-Ford Car Show
Saturday Nite: Drinks and Dinner
Sunday: Piney Woods Cruise and Farewell Lunch

And in BIG NEWS.....each participant will receive a special gift courtesy of Molly Saleen and Saleen Inc!

Anybody willing to lead groups in, either Friday or Saturday? Let me know and I'll get the word out.

I might be able to attend, but the only thing is my car is down for a head repair. Hopefully it can be finished by that time.

Great you can make it!
Not that it's necessary to participate, but not clear...are you bringing the car or not?

It depends if I get the head back from the shop and get the car back together in time. It's still up in the air right now.

In just a few hours we're kicking off the long-awaited Gullo Ford Weekend!
Yall have seen the exciting itinerary above, and the meet-up details for the Houston locals.
It looks like the weather is going to be great, with no more than 20% chance of rain on all 3 days!
Oh and don't forget, Molly has sent along something special for all who attend.
If anybody needs help along the way, don't hesitate to call me at 832-687-000Nine
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
Joe
