This year I will be collecting the funds for the event in advance. This will eliminate a lot of work the day of the party collecting money and making change and paying the food vendor. RSVP is required and non refundable if you can't make it. We can't return the food. The $11 fee per person will include a great lunch, some snacks, water for the drive and pay for the portable restroom. I have set up the link below so you can send in the money to my paypal account. Click on the link below to pay. RSVP by making a post on this thread. Include your Screen name, year and make and color of car and the first names of you and your guests if you bring someone.

 

Link to send your payment: http://funds.gofundme.com/39pmw

 

 

I will maintain and keep updating this First post with the members names that are going to be attending the event. RSVP is required so the food vendor can be prepared to serve us all a great meal. Sandy from the Field Kitchen will be providing us all with a great lunch again. I have included a link to the mobile Kitchen that will be on site at my place. The lunch will include your choice of a main entry and side dish like fries or Salad and a drink. Extras will be available too. The food will be great and since Sandy did this last year, she knows what we all like and how to serve us efficiently.

I make no money on this event, in fact it cost me some every year....but I do not mind. I do it for fun. The money is for the food vender, the Grange Hall and the band. The car count is so I can lay out the parking on my property.

 

DO ME A FAVOR AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS TO RSVP AND PAY YOUR $11 BUCKS.

I will also be posting up a thread for the Southbound to Grabberville for the Canadians and north group. I think there will be a few newbies in attendance this year.

 

You just can't beat 30+ Shelbys all rolling together for 200 plus miles. :D

Dave,

 

I'm glad to see you can make it. It's going to be a blast.

 

Note to everyone:

 

1. Bring your own car show chair in your trunk.

 

2. If you don't pay in advance, I'm not adding you to the RSVP list. I need a firm head count and if you send the money, I know you won't back out. Also I don't want to deal with money the day of the show and I need to pay for the food and restroom in advance. I hope you understand.

Last year several people had friends that have Shelby's but do not belong to Team Shelby. You guys need to collect their money and paypal it to me or mail it to me in advance.

 

I'm not having my wife and son spend 3 hours collecting money and making change the morning of the event again this year. We also had about 10 people back out of event 2 days before the show and we got stuck with extra food. This is no different than one of the events that you would attend on TS.

Please add Curt & Kathy, Quadshot, 2008 black w/red vert to the list.

 

 

Once payments are made, each member will be added to the list.

 

If not enough people sign up, I may have to re think this event.

 

If only a dozen people commit, we will just meet at Starbucks for coffee.

 

If this happens....I will refund all the moneys.

 

I will make this judgment call 3 weeks prior to the event.

This is a rain or shine event . Rob and his family should not have to stress over people paying or showing.

 

Last year was a great time and not one car melted. :hysterical: I even had my top up for a bit.

What Does RSVP Mean? - The definitive explanation of the term RSVP.

This tip should help hosts and guests alike, because there seems to be a lot of confusion about the meaning of the above term RSVP.

Lack of RSVPs - A Growing Problem

I hear more and more often, and have found in my personal experience, that hosts often do not receive receive responses to invitation that tell them whether guests plan to attend their parties, even if an RSVP is clearly requested. This could mean either one of two things. First it could mean that rudeness is a growing trend in our society. Or, as I would prefer to believe, people no longer understand what the term means. Assuming the best, and that the reason guests don't RSVP to an invitation is a case of ignorance, not rudeness, I will clarify this for the record.

 

 

What RSVP Means

The term RSVP comes from the French expression "répondez s'il vous plaît", meaning "please respond". If RSVP is written on an invitation it means the invited guest must tell the host whether or not they plan to attend the party. It does not mean to respond only if you're coming, and it does not mean respond only if you're not coming (the expression "regrets only" is reserved for that instance). It means the host needs a definite head count for the planned event, and needs it by the date specified on the invitation.

 

 

Why It's Inconsiderate to Not RSVP

An incomplete list of respondents can cause numerous problems for a host including difficulty in planning food quantities, issues relating to minimum guarantees with catering halls, uncertainty over the number of party favors and difficulties in planning appropriate seating, among other things.

 

So the next time you see RSVP on an invitation you receive, please call your host and respond promptly.
