As for times changing and families and all that - for some folks Memorial day is the perfect day. Its a long weekend before summer kicks into gear, school is out and its a good chance to get away. As for Sunday being wasted it has always provided me with a means do the whole days drive home and rest up on Monday.
Well I was talking to Roscoe last week and then got Liz's PM about the VBII. Roscoe didn't seem angry or anything in his PM to me, just sounded surprised I guess. I was just always on the impression that more help is always better but at the same time can understand the "one too many cooks in the kitchen" theory. Perhaps there might have been too much friction with two chefs at the event? I dunno, if it were me having a big event...I wouldn't have any qualm's if two people wanted to partake. But its hearsay...

Yep haha I have heard that one about the weekend a million times...for those traveling back home it was great but for those that can't make it till saturday or sunday...kinda a bum deal. I was just hoping for some events to still take place for those local who can't make it till saturday or sunday...just an idea.

By the way...were ya from the CF and were perma banned? Your forum name sounds familiar...think we have chatted in the past before.

I'm afraid you are incorrect. I am in direct communication with the NCM and Memorial Day weekend was released to us just a few weeks ago. And as I stated in another thread, Willis can spin this thing any way he feels will get him the most mileage, but the fact is that while the lack of attendance is a discussion that may have been bandied about on a few occasions, the final decision not to have another Cruise-In was made well after this last Cruise-In.

See my other post regarding this.

I'll say this once more: This is not an effort to rub anything in CF's face. They lost this event on their own. It was dying even before VB was a factor and the primary reason WAS and IS because of shoddy and underhanded treatment of current and former members. Of course, nothing will be admitted on CF because it's a "state-run" website.

I'd also like to point out that while we welcome anyone's participation, those who arrive at Vette Barn to attempt some sort of "damage control" on behalf of CF are pretty much wasting their time. Too much well-deserved resentment here for any of that to take hold.

Now...suggestions for Barn Raising II? We're all ears.

xtremevette...My apolgies for not knowing your id name/real name matchup. You said you were at Cruise Ins in the past? So alot of us here have actually met you in person? I see that you're in Murfreesboro, where my kiddo attended college. I don't think you're the guy I taLked to when her Jeep needed work, are you? Apologies again if you are and that's slipped my mind, too!

Read your views on everything...understood...for the most part we both agree on everything...just a minor difference in opinions on a few things...but its all good. Iam not here to represent CF or any other forum for that matter...sorry if I came off that way.

Dixie...what are you driving now? Last I heard ya sold the Vette?...haven't seen you or Jo around in a while.

KBlair...how ya been doing out there in Knoxville? How are your gauges doin Kim?

I am hopeful that Roscoe does join in. Sounds like good food for all.

Nope Iam originally from Massachusetts Liz and yup I had been going to the CF Cruise Ins since the beginning with Cruise In #1 with Troy and Ryan. I drove up with Frank Shear (Mr. Mojo) and the rest of the NY, NJ crew. I attended CF CI 1 and 3 driving up in my dark red C4. My car was the one the blew the transmission out in KY and held up the entire New England Caravan for over 2 hours on CF CI 3 Go me huh! The guys at East Coast Supercharging weren't too thrilled with that lol. But Doug and Chris are really cool...they wanted to change it out on jackstands in the parking lot. Those were the days! Anyways I moved to Murfeesboro back in 2007 and started going back to the Cruise In's but as you know, they just never were the same. It was so long ago but I do think I might have met you at one of the Cruise Ins perhaps or Iam mistaken...were you around a decorated Christmas Tree? (I know that sounds really odd...but if it was you, you will know exactly what Iam talking about).

The Christmas tree was QTip and My95 and ForensicVette and a bunch of folks. I might have had a White Castle and beer or several there myself.

I am still a member at CF and post there on occasion, but I'm not a fan of what happened to many of my friends there, nor do I enjoy the NNILOSER/CHASL2or3 Look-At-Mefest.

Therefore I post here and in the CF C6/7 sections and very little in CFOT.

Pix please...of you, not the tree! As I recall, Dave (for some mysterious, unknown reason) just happened to have the Christmas lights in his c3.
