Hi All

Correction to my previous post...the cutoff date for the early registration fee is 21 AUG 2017. After that date the price increases to $185 single/$285 per couple. It is only two weeks until 21 Aug. Please register now.

We want to order the shirts within the next week so getting an accurate count will really help. An accurate head count will also help us determine the number of trophies we need and allow us to make the final arrangements for the banquet and other meals.

Thanks

Jim

Jim,
Haven't seen a response concerning the parts room. Will you have a room available that can be secured? I don't want to bring parts and have to unpack and pack up every day. The parts room has been a part of Uniteds for the 30 something years that I've attended. ????? In our travels to shows and vintage racing in the last couple months I've talked to folks that plan on attending but didn't have their room booked. Do you have any details concerning other hotels so these folks can find a room?

The hotel has no other rooms suitable for a parts room. The main doors to the room can likely be secured but the hotel staff will still have access through the the dining room and kitchen. As I mentioned to Eric, I briefed this when We presented this hotel and nobody had a problem. Adding security might be a possibility but that will be costly. We will be looking into security for the parking lot...maybe the hotel will allow the guard to check on the parts room as well. For now that's about it.

As for other hotels, it is not looking good. As our hotel filled up I checked around with several within a short distance and all are totally booked. I really can not offer any options other than to expand their search.

Hi All

in view of the Holiday Inn being sold out, I just checked some hotel websites for rooms at other hotels. The choices are very few. here is what I have come up with and these hotels only have one or two rooms each.

Motel 6 Staunton
Knights Inn Staunton
Econo Lodge East Staunton

I can not attest to the quality of any of these establishments, so please do your due diligence. Hope this helps those that still want to attend but do not currently have accommodations.

Hi All

Less than one week left to take advantage of the United 36 Early Registration and the reduced fees. After 21 Aug 2017 the cost to register will increase by $40.

If you plan to attend and have not registered, PLEASE DO SO IMMEDIATELY. This is especially important if you wish to purchase one or more of the United 36 shirts. To ensure we get the shirts in time we must place the order within the next few days. Extra shirts will be in very limited supply.

Thanks

Jim

Attention All Amateur Photographers

In an effort to get full photo coverage of United 36 we are looking for some volunteers to get photos of the different activities. We are hoping we can get enough volunteers so we can spread the responsibilities so one or two people do not spend the entire weekend taking photos.

Hoping there are a few of you who have more that your phone for taking pictures and are willing to contribute a little time during the event.

If so drop me an email, PM or simply respond to this post.

Thanks

Jim

Hi All

Starting to get inquiries about attending the United for less than the entire weekend. I know we still have several VA area people who have not registered for the weekend, who might be thinking about coming out for a day or two.

Here's the deal...cost to register for a single day is as follows:

Thu/$10
Fri/$50
Sat/$50
Sun/$75

All prices are per person. If you add up the amounts for each day you will notice it equals the late registration fee for a single.

Signing up for a day will allow you to participate in all activities and meals that day. See the website for the schedule of events. It would also give you access to the parts room and hospitality suite back at the hotel.

If you do sign up for Sunday please let us know which activity you plan to attend. If you want to autocross..it will cost an additional $20.

You can register at the event on Thu or Fri. But we would appreciate a heads up email in advance so we have time to adjust head counts.

High All

Less than One week to go. Today I received a question regarding parking at the hotel. The lot to the side and rear of the hotel is reserved for Rootes vehicles only. Please use the front lot to park your other cars, trucks and trailers. We have over 70 cars coming and all should fit into that side/rear lot.

See you next week.

Final Update...

Just checked the weather and it appears we will have excellent weather all 4 days...Sunny about 80 degrees. Keep your fingers crossed that this forecast holds.

I checked for area road construction. Nothing on I- 81 within 50 miles of Staunton. Looks like a lane closure on the Blue Ridge Parkway at mm 33-37. This will affect those taking the driving tour medium and long routes. Do not let that dissuade you. Just a short slow down for a few miles. Many more great roads and scenery.

Travel safe.

Jim
