I've read through the closed thread regarding the National Z06 Registry. Here is another one... or is it the same one? That purports to be associated with the NCM. I tried to verify this with the NCM in BG however Wendall Strode had already gone for the weekend and no one else could verify the information. Does anyone else know anything about this?

Anyway here is the POC information from the membership form.

We have word that this event schedule was not approved by the NCM and that they were pre-printed and the event was denied.

Of course, this has not been confirmed, maybe Adam can shed some light.....

The word I get was that they were denied by the NCM. So why is he still advertising it?? :-?

Send him $100!! :roll: Well, we have been approved for a meet by the NCM and we are FREE!!

Where's his website?? Does he have a forum??

No doubt he is throwing a lot of $$$ into this, but can you buy membership?? :-?

I have a good idea, send me $100 and I will buy all the beer at our meet...plus a new EB Z06!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I wish the guy luck, maybe he is sincere. :) But, he shouldn't use our hard work for a springboard for his endeavors. He should work for it just as we have. Not a flame. If he wants to join us, he is more than welcome.
