United XXXVII (37) Sept. 14-17, 2018

Postby syblock » Tue Oct 03, 2017 7:48 pm

I plan to meet the Town of North Hempstead Parks and Recreation Special Events and Concert chairs next Wednesday to discuss plans for our United XXXVII Concours and possible British Car Day (with Sunbeam as the featured Marque) and a British Invasion Concert.
Wish me luck as dealing with any municipality is always difficult.

Hi to all folloowing the news
The meeting with North Hempstead Park Asst. Commissioners went very well and we're now on first name basis. I sent a proposal that puts us at North Hempstead Beach Park for the day with park, beach, prominade and pavillions. The plan would be for TEAE to show our cars but they would publicize the event and possibly have a DJ or a band at the meet along with food trucks and possibly invitations to other clubs to come as well. It's now with the Commissioner but the Special Events Chair and the Concert Chair and the head of Park Recreation are all on board.
The Porche club will be out of town on our weekend, but I've made contact with the Autocross SCCA guy who was very responsive. They do not have their schedule up yet, but they had an Autocross on the the Sunday of the same weekend in Sept. this year, which looks good for us.
The lunch at Grimaldi's for Friday after the Cradle of Aviation Museum tour is set and I'm working on us being able to visit the garage owned by the person I've contacted to speak at the Banquet on the History of Vanderbilt Racing on Long Island. He has a Tucker and about 7 other very vintage cars. I'll also speak to the Dyna-tune specialist who did my car as a possible Friday afternoon place to visit.
I'm holding off on the Sagamore Hill (Teddy Roosevelt Home) Sunday morning reservation as still want to speak to the Mayor of Glen Cove about them again having a ferry (18 minutes) to Manhattan next Sept. If so, I think many of us would like to take it as within walking distance from the 911 Memorial. Also, the Feast of San Genaro is ongoing in nearby Little Italy that same weekend. Lot's still to do but things are coming along.
Any questions or comments, please respond.

It sounds as if the planning is coming along very well. I checked out the park and it looks to be an excellent location...right on the water. I lived on LI for 30 years and never been there.

Do not worry too much about the Auto-x, I am sure it will come together. This year the SCCA guys were not able to confirm the site until March...and things worked out fine.

I love the idea of the ferry ride on Sunday for the non-auto cross participants. A trip to downtown manhattan is a fabulous excursion and the ferry ride makes it even better. We should be able to do that and get back in plenty of time for the banquet Sunday night.

Let me know what I can do to help.

Jim

Thanks Jim
As I just told Tom Hillmann in an email, I want to get the Concours and Autocross basics down (not necessarily in stone, but secure) and then discuss more of the particulars in more of a committee fashion as there are always some issues that are coming up that require input from you as VP and past chair especially, but also some of the other guys who have been around and can offer informed thoughts and opinions. Even some of the issues brought up by the most difficult people can have some merit.
I'm also dealing with a repainting of the Alpine which was hit at my mechanic's shop by the son of a body shop owner, who is a great painter, who uses the shop for alignments after he completes the body work. There wasn't that much damage but the quarter didn't match by a shade after the clear was applied. He now wants to do the whole car; we'll see how that plays out.
Never a dull moment but at least the SCCA Autocross guy and the North Hempstead people are alive and responding.
