    Yes, Saturday April 28th 2018.

    There are a few minor issues with the announcement, Obviously that's the worst. I'll get it fixed ASAP.

    I dont know if there are any politics involved, but I just saw the April issue of Drive without HB listed? Would it be worthwhile to list it on Drive web page or magazine? Although for the mag it may be to late.

    No politics that I'm aware of, just negligence on my part! Any info that you can pass along would be great; I'm not aware of this resource.

    Drive is a magazine that you can typically find in speed shops. Its free, lots of advertiseing in it.

    Driveonline.com the web page for drive

    http://files.engagedmediamags.com/Drive/DRV_Mar18/ Last months magazine online

    Funny thing, i found it today at a taco shop with other typical free mags but just one Drive mag.

    We're 35% full already guys, which is a faster clip than in year's past. We're not using the pier plaza this year for overflow so there is a cap.

    You know what to do; don't dilly dally.

    If you are coming in from out of town and haven't reserved a room at the Shorebreak, hop to it! SPACE IS LIMITED!

    If you still have to register for the event, sooner is better than later please...

    Nickolaus, I'm glad you are bringing your under-construction 818. It will be a popular attraction because guys will like to see how the 818 is built. I don't know if Factory Five will bring their cutaway roadster, but it always draws a crowd. Eleven years ago I saw a FFR roadster go-kart that started me on a wonderful journey building 2 cars after I saw the quality of the chassis. Plus, it's a lot of fun to meet other builders and see their work!
