Right now, I'm planning to be there. I haven't had much time to devote to the car recently, so it's kinda up in the air as to whether it will be there or not. Also, is there a particular motel that I should call first. I'm sure that some of them are full by now. I've never been there, so suggestions are welcome.

Do your hotel reviews online. There are quite a few "low budget" ones in the area that I wouldn't stay at if my life depended on it. Unfortunately many of the better ones seem to be booked already, though that changes as the show get closer and reservations get cancelled. The options are to stay in outlying areas, like Chambersburg, Shippensburg, Harrisburg (lots of burgs here...) and travel in day of show. Or, if you like camping, you can camp on site for the whopping fee of $35 for the weekend. But you must pre-register to do that.

Woo-hoo! Airfare prices dropped today and I had a $99 "companion fare" award code thru my Delta AmEx to use (on the wifey), so we just booked our Carlisle trip! We'll be flying in Friday afternoon to Baltimore, picking up our EconoBox rental car, and heading to the show directly from the airport. We're staying over near Hershey at the Comfort Inn (by Radisson)...not close, but pretty direct along the freeway. And only $75/night!

I figure we'll get there around 4pm Friday and meet and greet some folks, then come back for the full day on Saturday. Well, at least *I* will...the wifey just may take the rental car keys and head to the nearest mall! She's apprehensive after I've dragged her to the local "Back to the Fifties" car show the last few years (11,000+ hot rods in one place).

Come on guys I am sure we can do better than this.
This is supposed to be a big year for Sterlings.
With the aniversary and all going on I was looking forward to atleast 20 cars onsite.
Now that I have a few more cars coming my way I will need alot more ideas for them. It is always better to see them in person and there is alot to see at this show.

Well.. such is the world of a forum and social club with no dues. While I will have some "visual aids" in the form of movies for either Friday or Saturday night (Sterling related CCC movies and maybe Cannonball Run II if we get bored), my special guest won't be able to make it. I was trying to get Mike McBride "Mr. Sterling", the builder who had the cars in the '90's to come in for the weekend. Being older and living on the edge like most of us, he wasn't able to afford the trip. I initially offered to pay for the flights and some room and board as long as Carlisle covered the rest - they didn't. In fact, they are not helping the club at all, even after talking with the promoter for months between last years show and this February. So unfortunately, with the items I do plan to bring just so we can be found on the field, tent rental and other items I need to bring, I simply cannot afford to bring Mike in out of my own pocket.

I'm sorry guys, I really wanted to try to make something special happen this year for those that do attend. Maybe we'll still do a cruise or something to Gettysburg battlefield or up into the mountains on Saturday morning. We'll see what the weather brings...
