BBF bash in the fall? Colorado?

I know this has been kicked around a little before by those of us in the west, but nobody could decide on a location.

I'd be willing to organize an event in my area. I think the track in Pueblo, CO. would be the best choice from a cost perspective. The elevation isn't too high and they have a 1/4 mile track as well as a road course down there. It's about an hour south of me. Plenty to do and see for the whole family in and around Colorado Springs if anyone wanted to make a vacation out of it.

Is my location too far for you guys in Cali, Washington, Montana? How about for the guys in the central part of the country?

Mid September or mid October are the only times that really work for me. October can be kind of risky weather wise. Last year we had a major blizzard, but this year it was sunny and 70-80 all month long.

If anyone is interested, this is the time to start getting it together. It doesn't have to be here. If you live someplace else and you're willing to organize it, speak up!

Just had an idea while talking about this with my wife. Maybe we could coordinate around the Ford vs. Mopar showdown in Pueblo? Do a Friday cruise and dinner here in Colorado Springs for the BBF guys followed by racing at the event on Saturday and Sunday?

Here's the flyer from this year's event.

I can contact Scott from MPG and see when the 2008 event is planned and if he'll have room for a BBF contingency.

That would be interesting! Remember a while back about that stink that came up when a Tv show that comparied the Muscle Car engines? (they didn't use a complete factory Hemi) Then it got into PHR and they called us cry babies?

This is definately something I'd take a ride for. I'll probably just be a spectator, but it will be fun to meet everyone and watch the cars.

If Joe would slow down enough to allow me to jump in the truck, I wouldn't mind going.

Set the date and I'll do my best to be there. It's only 1100 miles 1 way for me too.

If it ain't broke, you can't fix it no matter how hard you try!

Colorado is a good location for me. I'm pretty sure I could make it.

Subscribing.

Hey Tom, who said I was taking the truck? I'll probably just fly the Lear up there.
