Motor Cities Gruppe at the Waterford Hills Vintage Races

July 12, 2018
spg356


.
Dear Gruppe Friends,
.
I have made arrangements for an event at the Waterford Hills vintage races July 27-29. Vic and Dave Burton plus possibly more 356’s will be racing.
.
There will be a small spectator tent with table and chairs at the end of the straight, plus a larger tent in the paddock area for additional hospitality. I will have beverages and snacks available.
.
I know that St. John’s concours is on Sunday and Saturday is the best day for racing.  Last year about 12 friends stayed for the great dinner on Sat night.  This year the dinner will be in the club house with plenty of A/C, cash bar and beers are a buck.  Dinners
are again $28.00 but you get grilled US Choice Strip Steak, grilled chicken, fresh MI corn, home made salads, and pie.  Water, coffee and pop is included.
.
Please RSVP to Barb at skirmants@hughes.net
..
Thanks,
.
Barbara
