Host Hotel Security and other questions
« on: July 29, 2018, 01:15:27 PM »
I've been looking for information regarding over night parking lot security at host hotel as I'm driving my 68 Shelby to event. I have read that security is provided.  Is the security hired? or is it SAAC members? what are the hours it is provided?  Does anyone have experience in this area from previous conventions?  Do I need to worry about my car? Only other time I've driven my Shelby was SAAC13 at same venue but didn't spend the night.

Tried sending questions to contact they provide on SAAC 43 Convention website but didn't get a response so thought I'd try the general forum.

I'm registered, but don't know what that means other than I would assume I have admission, but where do I get my pass?  Is there a will call?

Do I have to enter the car show to be able to park my car with the others inside the gates?

Any information would be great

Thanks!

Went to registration website to add parade lap and car show as it is supposed to be free if you bring 68 Shelby.  Website wanted to charge $25 for each of the 2 add on items. 

guess I'll take my chances when I arrive on Friday that there are openings for both.

KUDOS on driving your car. It's the way they were intended to be used. In the past there has been security. I don't know if it's paid for by SAAC or part of their contract with the hotel/track. It's not members but you can usually find some members wandering the parking lot at 1am bsing with other wandering members.
Just as a normal precaution park your car where someone can't get to it with a tow truck and pull the rotor.

okay thanks for the tip.

I'll assume that if there had been any problems in the past, people would be more wary about driving their cars to the event/hotel

I would think they haven't updated that part of the registration - 2018 was the 50th for the 68s. This year I'd assume 69s will get the freebies.
