DDM is in, Windrestrictor and Solo have all donated for the run.

Met with the Monk at the Korean Monastery today. We are a go for the run.

There are a few hotel rooms available I think.

Would really like to see some from this board attend the run. I hear over and over that the performance side of the house is Pontiac, but never see a single one show up at a car show or one of our runs. We average about 25 cars on these events, from stock to LS3 vehicles. Spirited drives, great places and some really great swag this year.

Bring those dusty Solstices out, we need to see a few of them.

DDM goodie bag arrived today.

Several Kappasphere bags
Kappa Attic
10 Tee Shirts and
10 Solstice bags with the embroidered logo on it.
The sky people are not going to want these, so get out here for the run, they are pretty kool.

Wind restrictor is giving us a 50% of voucher for any single order, meaning you could order a restrictor and door sills and only pay 50% of total cost.

And Solo has given us 20 Tee Shirts, 20 License plate holders and get this

A high flow Solo Cat!

Going to be a great weekend, you guys need to be here. A great drive planned, about 270 miles total run.

Palm Springs 2015 is in the books, 16 cars, great drive, just a little over 350 miles from out the door to back. Great weather, a little hot at times. Drove through or next to a police shoot out, capture of a murderer. We bring unique things to our runs. Nothing beyond the scope of our planning. Thought the run was over, road blocked, but it was a block beyond where we turned on Highway 243. We aim to please.
