United XXXII Announcement

Postby parlanti » Wed Feb 13, 2013 8:27 pm

Planning for United XXXII is well underway and will take place in beautiful St. Michaels on Maryland’s Eastern Shore October 10-13. St. Michaels is a beautiful seaside town on the Chesapeake Bay with a nice selection of shops, museums and restaurants.

Here’s a link to the town web page:
http://stmichaelsmd.org/

We’ve brought back the United 28 team and a couple of new members with the following responsibilities:
• Joe Parlanti – Host, dash plaques, trophies, tour, etc.
• Clyde McLaughlin – hotel , restaurants, concourse location
• Rick Kellett – Autocross
• Ronnie Silber – Publicity and giveaways
• Jim Lindner – Registration
• Tom Calvert – Planning the Crab Feast and help as needed
• Jackie Parlanti and Valerie McLaughlin – onsite registration and hospitality

Clyde McLaughlin has located our host hotel, the Best Western Motor Inn a short distance from downtown St. Michaels. We visited it and several others in the surrounding area. The hotel has 94 rooms, a good hospitality suite, included breakfast, good parking for our cars and a great location. The hotel is under new ownership and has just completed a $350K upgrade with another $1M on tap through this year and next. We toured the facility and it will suit our event very nicely. We’ve negotiated a very reasonable rate for the area and time of year:
• Thursday and Sunday nights - $95
• Friday and Saturday nights - $129

This link will provide some photos:

We have a good schedule defined with several interesting events planned. Some of the highlights are:
• A nice driving tour of the area on Friday with lunch at a local restaurant.
• A club sponsored cookout at the hotel on Friday evening by Joe Parlanti and Ronnie Silber.
• A very nice location for the Concours on Saturday.
• On site TAC inspections
• A Maryland Crab Feast after the Concours.
• A club managed combination autocross and drag race at the Ridgely, Md. Airport. Joe Anderson, my company’s CEO and NHRA Pro Stock record holder, will run the drag race and provide a “how to” for our club. Afterward, we’ll head over to CTS for a tech session in our CTS engineering facility.
• The banquet will be held at the Caroline Country Club Sunday night with a special guest speaker.

Here’s the tentative schedule:
Thursday
• Check in and group dinner at a local restaurant (self pay)
Friday
• Registration and hospitality all day
• Driving tour and lunch (self pay)
• Cookout at the hotel by Joe Parlanti and Ronnie Silber
Saturday
• A judged Concours, non judged cars displayed also.
• Maryland Style Crab Feast in the afternoon
• Possible Automotive Museum Tour or Chesapeake boat tour.
Sunday
• Autocross and drag race at the Ridgely Airport
• Tech Session at CTS
• Banquet at the Caroline Country Club

More details will be coming soon along with registration forms, so stay tuned!

Sounds like it will be a good one!
Bing Maps says only 110 miles door-to-door - NICE :D
We'll be planning to see you there.

Bing maps says 1059 miles if we drive through Chicago. I suppose the wife will want to go but I have to find a different route than through Chicago.

I can't imagine that going thru Chi-town in the Tiger would be much fun. Is there such a time as "off peak" there?
Based on your past escapades - you'll probably just decide to get there via Florida or something like that... :roll:

I called today to make my reservations at the hotel and found we only have standard rooms available. either smoking or non smoking is the only choice you have. no kings are in our block. there are no microwaves in the rooms. I know it's still early but at first they said they didn't see anything concerning rooms blocked for us. it took a little time but they found it. we're checking in on Wednesday so I was given two different reservations. they did not tell me what my rate is for Wednesday so I asked for e mail confirmation of my reservations but have not received anything. you need to be patient when you call for reservations. they suggested if you are checking in before Thursday and you have two reservations you need to make them aware of that or you may have to move to another room after the first night

Mailed our registration off to Jim today :D

Hmmmm - now I wonder if the hotel will have the right sort of "accessible room" available in the "block"?

I just tried to use the online registration. I seem to have been stuck on the review and continue window. So, I don't know if I've paid several times, or haven't paid at all?

Thanks for the update, Ron. I'll look right into it
Did you make it into PayPal? Or were you stuck on our site?

I'm pretty sure, it was paypal. It kept saying that I'd already registered w/that information, after filling out all the CC information and clicking on review and continue. I've got a paypal, but always forget password, so was trying to pay by CC. Thanks for the reply and looking into it.

Ron,
If your problem was after you left our site and got into the paypal system, I can't help you.
However, I have asked Gary Moss (TEAE treasurer) to see if your payment went thru.
He'll get back to you directly.
Sorry for the difficulty
