I appreciate the sentiments of Mark, Dennis and Kjeld.
Seventeen is a very low number, we would love to see that number closer to thirty (or forty) ... so if I may coerce other members living in California or Nevada to show up, please consider yourselves coerced.
The passengers of exhibitors get in free. In other words it is cheaper for an exhibitor with a passenger to enter the Concorso than for two spectators to enter on foot. So bring two lawn chairs, one for yourself plus a second for a passenger, and bring some money for food and drink, and enjoy yourself at this awesome event. The founding concept of the Concorso was that your car does not have to be a show car to enter.
More than anything else Debbie and I want to facilitate De Tomaso owners hanging-out with each other, making a showing for the marque, and having a good time. Got room for an ice chest (Don!)? Your corral host likes a cold Budweiser (or a St.Pauli Girl, or a Corona). Folks with ice chests are welcome to hide their trunk tubs behind our pavilion. Join Debbie, Dale and I, the Spratling family, Sheldon, and other perennials and lets just have a good time.
