SAAC-48 / Popular Ballot Car Show details
« on: May 22, 2023, 07:53:44 AM »
While I am not running this part of the event any more, I am helping in the set-up and orchestration of the show as part of the transition to the new show chairmen. Team Shelby will be this year's show chairmen, as they are a co-host of this convention.

The show will be very similar to the show run at Pitt the last time four years ago. The specific awards will be posted shortly, but here is the general set-up:

Participants vote on a top 20 (or 25) popular winners, independent of any class the car is in. Just your favorites. The traditional one ticket per car's voting envelope on the windshield, and each person gets a unique numbered ticket sheet, so no duplicates in any envelope will be counted.

A judging committee will also walk the field, and select a "Best" from a class list of roughly 25 classes, including specific classic and modern Shelby Mustangs, CSX Cobras, all matter of Mustangs, plus the assorted special classes. If a car wins this award, and also gets voted, a "TOP 20", the Top 20 will be removed and given to the next available highest vote getter. One award per car.

There will also be 4 special VIP awards picked by event VIP's, plus a "Best in Show" for the highest vote getter.

Parking will be divided into quarters, with trying to keep it divided into classic Shelby, Modern Shelby, All Mustangs, All other. But, if your group is mixed, you can park together. We're just trying to allow festival parking, but keep it grouped as best we can. Makes it more fun when youcan park and hang out with friends, and the show committee is not going ape-sh*t trying to park by classes. More fun for all.

Now, where the show will be at the track I have no clue, so the bosses will tell all of us that.

Get there early, shine it up, come to the registration table to get your credentials, and enjoy the show!

We visit roughly every three years, so the displays are new

This year we will tour the museum on Saturday May 6th, 2023 from 9Am to 11AM.

More details shortly, but looking for a head count early.

The place is legendary!!!

Our annual Fall event is on!!!

Same Sunday location at Silver Creek Athletic Field, just south of Hellertown PA on Rt 212.

Car Show, Poker run, food, great entrant stuff, more details to come!

The current owner knows the CSX numbers are added by a previous owner. The FFR itself has the proper FFR VIN stamped in the frame. I'm just posting as an FYI for the current owner of this CSX VIN.

Lehigh Valley Region SAAC / 2023 Annual Indoor Go-Kart Morning of Mayhem
« on: February 25, 2023, 01:31:54 PM »
Ok, starting to get this organized, but still a few steps to go.

First off, a date. Right now, the following Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM are available – April 2, April 23, May 7, May 21. I have us tentatively penciled in on the April 2 date, but to be confirmed. PLEASE Tell me if you can do the 2nd, and what other date is your 2nd choice.

The Financial information. The cost has gone up from $650 for two hours up to $875 for two hours, so we have to raise the per driver fee as well. It will be $45 per driver. We held the previous amount as long as we could, but this is a big jump.

The format: Warm-up and practice, qualifying heats, a feature event, and fun after. It’s always fun, crazy chaos!

If you have not done this in the past, it’s an absolute blast! Our clubs 2nd longest continuously happening event.

What do I need right now? A CONFIRMATION you are planning on going. I need a driver count PRONTO! If we get close to enough, I will move forwards on this. After one week, I will open this up to other Shelby, Mustang, and Ford clubs.

HERE IS THE Information & Websites for the track:

Lehigh Valley Region SAAC / 2023 ClubMembership Renewal
« on: February 25, 2023, 12:32:01 PM »

Happy Almost Spring!

It’s time for may annual e-mail blast to cover the last 5 years of club membership and remind you that the annual membership dues are due. There are many duplicates on this list, so I apologize in advance for multiple e-mails from the mailing. I have attached both a PDF of the annual membership form, and a link to the club website page for renewing your membership. Either way works fine.

If your 2023 dues renewal has already been sent and processed, I have sent out a separate e-mailing for the memberships I have. If you did not receive that specific e-mail, then your time to renew is here.

I truly hope you will continue to be a part of our Shelby family, and 2023 promises to be another fun, busy, and important year for our club.

I will be sending out another e-mail with a report from the January 30, 2023 Club meeting, plus an overview of what is coming up for 2023, plus more club happenings and details.

May very best,

Dan Reiter
Lehigh Valley Shelby Club Inc.

Just fishing for input, nothing decided yet.

It's no secret, most car weekend events are shrinking. SAAC National conventions have cratered, with a drop probably reaching 50% over the years. And costs going UP to run them. It's definitely a negative proposition, and cost savings are paramount, yet trying to provide a great event.

Our Sunday Shelby/Mustang/Ford Cars show at Silver Springs A.A. is doing very well, proceeds going to Charity, it's a great event. 2023 date is Tentatively Sunday Sept 24, 2023. Mark and hold that date! This year's charity will be "Paws of Valor", a group that provides service dogs to Veterans in special need. We are looking for sponsors to help fund the show.

And, our Fall Tour is also a great time, enjoyed bay many, but thinking of moving it back into early October, so the leaves will be changing color, and it can be better organized and hopefully better attended running as a stand-alone. More options for the route as well.

I'd like to hear your input, feedback, and if you know of any events already scheduled in that time frame.

Many, many thanks in advance,

Dan Reiter
President, Lehigh Valley Region SAAC

Hold the dates!

While no firm details to release yet, this is the weekend bookmarked for the annual event. Working on the details, stay tuned!!!
