Well, Judy Yanko at the Museum has confirmed that I will be getting "Baby Blue" delivery starting at 8 A.M. on 8/23. My wife and I will be flying into Nashville and then driving to BG on 8/22 - should be there by 1:30 or so. We will be staying at William Strode's B&B - "1869 Homestead". If anyone will be at BG and would like to hook up for dinner, etc on 8/22 - please leave a message for us at (270) 842-0510, or let me know via the forum. C5Venom - I still owe ya that frosty one...

Plan to be at Carlisle on 8/25 - have already talked to Ernie at Breathless about "breathing on" the EB while I am there on Saturday. Someone named "Frank ???" on this forum had a good word for Breathless!

Looking to meet as many Forum folks as possible either at BG or in Carlisle. C4C5 Specialist - you are definitely on my must meet list!!

Jerry Yaros

BLUEBYU - Jerry, that is great news on your confirmed 8/23 delivery. Judy called me today (8/7) also...I asked for your week but it was all booked. Net-net, somehow I got 8/17 delivery at 8:00 am so Mary & I am going to miss you by a few days. HOWEVER, never one to refuse a frosty one, I will try to get off work for the Labor Day BG event.

I will certainly make sure they are ready for you the following week and they have your EB shined up and ready to Rock 'n Roll!

Best Regards,
Ken- /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

So, C5VENOM - you are gettin' yer ride before me, so sorry we will not hook up, while glad you only have a few days to go! One of my best friends called me on his cell last night - he just picked up his '02 Torch last night from the dealership, and he was on cloud 9. He had only 25 miles on it, but I'll bet he has a few more this A.M. Unlike me, he still has his '93 ZR-1, and was not a big fan of the Z06 until very recently. Had to sell my ZR-1 to get $ towards the new ride.

Enjoy your beautiful Z!! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Jerboa, Travis - no set plans as of yet, but some ideas. My wife and I will be flying into Nashville around 1:15 P.M. local time. We should be in BG by 3:00 P.M. or so, if the rental car deal works as planned. We have identified a couple of potential restaurants that are located downtown BG. However, since we have never been in the area before - it's all new to us! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif

I am trying to get some input from the Strodes, who own the B&B we are staying at. Guess I could also ask Judy Yanko for a recommendation.

The restaurants we found are:

The Parakeet & the Fletcher House located on 1129 College Street

Mariahs on 801 State Street

440 Main Restaurant and Bar - 440 East Main Ave.

If we can settle on a place, perhaps we can arrange to meet and have dinner/drinks, say around 6 P.M.

I will try to get some recommendations...

Jim,

I'm just flying in to be there when my car is built. Without sequence data I planned to make it a vacation and to tour the area including Mammoth Caves. I'll be back in BG the week of September 9th to pick up my car and will then drive it back to the SF Bay Area. jerboa /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Ok, guys and gal(s)! I was able to talk to Wendell Strode's wife - our gracious host at his B&B, and she recommended the 440 Main Restaurant and Bar. Excellent food (and drink!), beautiful setting, etc. I am not one to argue with the Strodes, so I propose that I make some reservations for say 6 P.M. for ? people??

We will be driving back to Virginia - we live about 30 miles south of Washington D.C., near the Manassas Civil War battlefields. I'm still a Yankee, but my better half is definitely a southern girl. Have a couple of bucolic acres to soothe our jangled nerves from working in the Washington area. Some pretty neat back roads too! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif

Travis, we will be doing 8 A.M. also...


The restaurant is located at 440 East Main Avenue, Fountain Square - web site is www.440main.com.

So, who's comin'??

Jerry,

We won't run out of topics to discuss, I'm sure. I lived in Arlington, Va for two years while on assignment in D.C. so we have some geography in common as well. Tell the restaurant to be on the lookout for Janet. I look forward to meeting you and your wife on 8/22! jerboa /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
