Default Saleens Invade San Antonio - November 1-3, 2013

Texas' favorite Saleen gathering is back again and, as usual, will have a different twist from the previous years.
Old staples will be the hill-country cruise and the Soda Pop's gathering on Saturday night.

Dates this year are Nov 1-3, so get your kitchen passes now!

I will be happy to organize the Houston group for a Friday noon-ish departure.

More details to follow!

Not much. I've only seen a few around town. I thought they'd be all over the place.

It's a great time during a great part of the year (weather-wise). Having just got done with the Hotter-Than-Hell-Nationals, I'll be ready to really relax at this one!

Just a reminder that time is running out to get the group rate at the host hotel.
Rooms may be available after the 21st, but that's not a certainty, so you're encouraged to book now.
Just a couple weeks away from Texas' premier Saleen weekend.
Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!

Revised the departure time on Friday from the hotel to 5 pm. Our hosts just want to make sure we get there in plenty of time.
Also, here's a cool Google Map link showing the hotel, Biff Buzby's, and Soda Pops:
https://mapsengine.google.com/map/ed...0.krso-ABle-Js

For the Houston group, we'll be meeting at the Cinemark Theater in Katy at I-10 and Grand Parkway in their westside parking lot about 11:30 and leaving promptly at noon. Please come gassed up and ready to go. If we all get their early enough we can get some pics and such.

I don't know if this has been talked about yet, but the last time I went to Biffs I had to pay $5 to park. Just make sure everyone has cash on them.

Hey folks, for anybody that wants one, I'll be bringing over some SIGNED editions of The Saleen Book with me to SA.
These books are $60 unsigned so I'm sure you're going to want to have one autographed by the author, Steve, and daughter Molly!
3 got water damage, but 9 are in excellent condition.
Condition - 9 xlnt $100, 1 minor $80, 1 medium $60, 1 heavily damaged $40.

Looks like a little chance of rain for the weekend, but we haven't let that dampen our spirits in the past!

We've just had a helluva storm come through central Texas but that means great weather for our weekend!
Our fearless organizer Chad has honed the plans even more, and wanted me to share the following with everyone:
- If staying at the Drury Inn, we do have a confirmed parking area on the 5th floor of the parking garage. So check in, and roll up to our designated spot. You'll be able to go to your rooms from there as it's directly connected to the hotel. There's street-level parking for those desiring it or having trailers.
- Our unofficial hangout spot at the hotel will be on the 6th floor terrace
- For those not staying at the hotel that want to come hang out, you can park with us on the 5th floor. Just go to the garage gate and use the call button and tell who answers that you're with the Saleen Club and they will let you in
- For the cruise, come with your tanks full or close to it. We will not be making any fuel stops, but where we stop for lunch there's premium available.
- If anyone wants to bring radios to help communicate during the cruise, they would be helpful.
- Chad will be off tomorrow and available to help if someone needs it when they get to SA. Give him a call at 210-416-7918.
- Also, the hotel is just right next door to an Applebee's in the event folks want to hang out there.

Additionally, attached is the itinerary and map again.

Here's the current list of attendees. Let me know if you're going and not on it, or have had a change of plans: Additionally, if you could chime in if you're going to be attending the Sunday brunch at the Mowrey crib, that will help us get our food requirements close.

From San Antonio:
Ramon A.
Dale R.
Brud R.
Alex L.
Ryan P.
Patrick D. (formerly from DFW area)
Alvin L.

From Austin:
Vince D.

From DFW:
Clark C.
Larry T.

From Houston:
Joe M.
Daniel R.
Cliff P.
Jorge A.
Clent L.
Gerardo L.
Michael H.
Ron M.
Josh T.
Seth J.
Seth's buddy Cliff

Other cool places in Texas:
