Summer Events: It's Getting Busy!

Posted by Panteras Northwest on August 23, 2011 at 11:50 AM

 

We have a number of events planned over the next 2-3 months as summer

finally decides to make an appearance. Here's a summary, and a copy of

the 2011 events calendar.

 

Friday-Sunday, July 1-3 at Pacific Raceways in Kent. The NW Historics for

three days of vintage racing. You can bring your car to the car corral

and do the noon-time drive around. This years' featured marque is Jaguar

in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the E-type release. PNW has in

the past organized a group for the Car Corral but did not this year.

Please visit the website for more details.

Thursday-Sunday, July 14-17, Mustangs NW Mustang Round Up. Thursday, July

14 is track day at Pacific raceways, Friday July 15 is the Pony Trails

drive to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort, Saturday is the Concours Mustang

show, and Sunday, 7/17 is the Peoples Choice show, where Panteras

Northwest will once again receive premium parking. This will also be our

meeting location for July. Find out more on the Mustangs NW website, At a

Gallop,

Saturday, August 6, Summer Drive-in, BBQ and all around Pantera Get

Together at Pat Hall's Garage-Ma-Hall in Maple Valley, WA. Time and

details have yet to be completed, but PNW member Pat Hall has graciously

offered to host a summer BBQ and Pantera outing. He is just off of Hwy 18

about 2 miles north of Maple Valley. Mark your calendars and stay tuned!

 

Sunday, August 7, LeMay ACM Collector Car Showcase. Chris Kimball put it

out there this last week that we ought to try to have a presence at this

event, and it sounds like a great opportunity. We can make it a Pantera

weekend, and you'll already have your car shined up from the Saturday

event, so why not? You can get more details from the article at the

following link. http://www.lemaymuseum.org/events.php?eid=789

 

Saturday, August 20, the Bowen Scarff Classic Ford Show and Mustang Round

Up. This is a PNW regular event, and we always get a good showing and

lots of crowd interest. This show fills up fast, so don't hesitate to get

your registration in early. We've had up to 8 Panteras in this show,

let's see if we can beat that. Get more details and registration forms at

http://www.bowenscarff.com/Car-Show.aspx. We'll plan to meet up at the

Office Depot across the street from BS Ford so we can caravan in.

 

Seattle Italian Concours: Sadly, we are going a second year without the

Concours as the Des Moines marina is still under construction. Labor Day

Weekend is yours to play

 

Saturday-Sunday, September 10-11, PNW Birch Bay Get Away and Sunday picnic

car show. Last year was a bit of a washout as La Niña had her way with

us, but this year WILL BE BETTER. We'll set ourselves up at the Birch Bay

Get Away cabins once again after a great Saturday back roads drive to get

there, and follow with the show at the Park on Sunday. More details to

follow. We'll set up a reservation at the Birch Bay cabins and drop you a

line to call in.

 

General Interest:

Griot's garage does a monthly (first Saturday of each month) Caffeine and

Gasoline, plus they have a great show/event calendar on their website.

As the LeMay Museum gets set to open this next year, they are ramping up

their events schedule, which is on their website. They have a monthly get

together as well in their digs in Fife called the Coffee Cruise-in. Next

one scheduled for Saturday, July 9. Check it out

Reno was a blast this year, as the smile on the starting grid at Reno

Fernley can attest, << File: th_DSC_0345[1].jpg >>

So let's get out there and keep the wheels rolling!
