The Joel Bender Memorial Nats -SB6 will be held August 18-19th, 2007.

Cost this year will be $10.00 per person. That will help cover the cost of food, trophies, & other essentials.

Saturday will be the car show and Picnic. It will be held at the previous location at Lambert Park, Woodbury Avenue, Martinsburg WV. We once again will meet up at a designated area then be police escorted into town to the park. We will be heading to the park at 10:00 AM. Car show judging will be from 11:00 to 1:00 PM. Like in previous years, we will have mostly independent Judges. There will be the following Show classes:

Lincoln Class (All) (2 Trophies)
Thunderbird/Cougar Class (All - Except SC's) (3 Trophies)
Thunderbird/Cougar Class (SC's Only) (3 Trophies)

Depending on turnout, other classes may be added later.

We also plan to choose a "Best of Show", "Best Engine compartment", and the ladies favorite, "Best Stereo competition". (3 Trophies)

Member of the year award will be voted on by our own club members and a presentation to that person as well.
_____________________________________________________________________

Sunday will be the Drag Race day at Mason Dixon! We will once again have our own Cougar/Thunderbird class at Mason Dixon. There will also be a car show that day sponsored by the track since that is the ALL Ford Event. Contact www.Masondixondragway.com for more information on that.

Gates open at 8:00 am, cost is approximately $30 to compete. There will be trophies and cash awarded the winners and runner-ups! It is a dial in bracket racing competition, not heads up. Usually we get 2-3 initial passes before eliminations Begin.

I will be posting Hotel information and contacts as soon as I get further information.

As everyone knows, we put on a good show and have a great time during this event every year. We look forward to seeing everyone, and certainly new faces are welcome. This is the largest all MN12 weekend Event on the East Coast.

Hope to see everyone there.

How many people from NC/SC are planning on coming to this event. As fo right now Jenny and I plan on coming and I wanted to know what the plan was for travel. Is everyone going up Friday night, and if so what time? I did not know if everyone was caravaning up or just meeting up there? Let me know if any plans already exist and if not, then lets make some if there are enough people going.

Not Sure how many are going up or what time but Harriet and I took Fri and Monday off. I'll put some feelers out. Hopefully we'll have the bags modified and won't need the redneck transfer.

Can't wait to see you two! I hope you have her all ready to show and go. I know I'll be looking forward to it.

I also know which car will be leading the procession behind the Police escort;) !

I'll be rolling heavy into things here shortly with the event.



Ollie, you are more than welcome to come and join us!!!! I'm sure I can find something for you to do to help.

I'm also in the process of trying to Set-up a Dyno shootout from 4 - 7PM Saturday, after the picnic and car show.

I need 20 folks to participate and to help with negotiating prices. This is NOT a definate dyno event yet, but please make your wishes known on the thread at www.MAMN12.com, Calender of events forum. That way I can try to get a better deal on the rates. This is not guaranteed, just something I'm trying to get set up.

There is also a forum at our website to sign up and for those that have paid for the event. If you are interested, please check out that thread also and get hold of Jason and Karen for payment.

Hope to see everyone there.

I would love to see that cougar out there.
I'll give it a shot, an over 650 mile round trip right after an over 900 mile round trip is a little rough, but I'll give it a shot.
