I am certainly willing and able to put my boat in the show.  It would only need about 4 hours of time from Jim and I, and it would be good as new.  So if the club votes that direction, we will get it ready.

I'm not voting and don't care either way if my cvx-18 is in the show, just need to know so I can get it ready.

Update!

I've been informed that we have been upgraded to the main show floor!  We have been upgraded to a 30'x40' space (203a).  We will be positioned directly in front of a 45'  offshore racing boat that is a show feature.

This means that we are now able to bring more boats.  Can someone do a layout and see how many will fit in that space?

That is good news. My Glastron Cave is 26 x 36. Depending on how much we want to squish them in to that size.......I'd say 4. 3 in a row then one perpendicular to those three if we want room to move around.

That's great that we have a bigger space. I will have my cvx shiny and ready if it is still wanted. I took off thursday and Friday from work just in case. Jesse

Sounds like things are coming together for the boat show. I have the orange '72 GT-150 that's under consideration. Key info needed is when the boats have to check in as that means scheduling time off from work. And, it appears that check-in time can be several days before the event.

If any one has more details, e-mail me at ThormanG@aol.com.

I am still willing to bring My boat if need be It is a CV-16SS completely original. Also My uncle owns a print shop I could have him do some printing if someone has some designs or ideas of what we would want for hand outs, flyers, Etc. Let me know what I can do to help.
I think this has become an addiction.

Ok, I have received a few inquisitive emails as I am sharing the responsibility of organizing this event.  I have talked with a few others and came up with a preliminary list.  The official word from Jennifer is that our spot can accommodate up to 6 boats.  The preliminary list has 5 boats so there is extra room to walk around an perhaps set up a table.  The list; Jason's V-172, Shawn's CV-16ss, Glyn's GT150, Tim's CVX-18, and Scott's CVX-20. I know Jesse has expressed interest in showing his CVX-20 and Jerry S's corinthian has been mentioned also.  IF YOUR NAME IS ON THE LIST please either post here or contact me so I know if you can make it or not, boats will need to arrive wed the 18th and leave sunday after 6pm.  I would like to have a final list by this time next week so we can work on other details.

Well, I better start buffing!

Thanks for taking the lead Sean. Did she say of a particular time we need to bring the boats in? Tanners what telling me it's very strucured and the boats need come in and out at a specific time.

I made a call to the 3M rep several weeks ago, asking for buffing supplies in turn for a little advertising (display of bottles of compound we use).

As per conversation with him, he was going to order a case each of heavy duty compound and Finesse II for the group to use.

Said I should have it before the holidays as of now it is not it my hands. Will let know by posting when it arrives.

I see that Gregg kindly looking to help somebody and myself also.

I have all the pads and buffer. So anybody needing help let us know.

I will go get my Boat this weekend and Give it another quick buff. I will need to cover my trailer or take the boat off of it. I never had a chance to get it blasted and painted. Also I have a heated 2 car garage if anyone else needs to bring a boat over to get it ready. It is set up pretty much for what ever you need. Lots of tools and a large compressor. Can only fit prob one at a time in there but it is always 70 degrees. Also let me know about the printing if we want to get anything done. I can get some prices if we have an idea what we want.

Anyone know where to get carpet I am thinking I may replace that before the show.
I think this has become an addiction.

Brian did his CV16SS with carpet from home depot. I think the carpet in his CVX20 came from there too. Actually looked really nice.

I think we should come up with some kind of hand out for people. Maybe just a simple 2-fold (8-1/2 x 11) handout. Has some pictures, club info, maybe a little on the history of Glastron.

Would be kind of neat to have our DVD playing from the 2009 meet.

If someone could put something together and email it to me that would be great. I agree a TV set up playing the videos would be a great Idea.
Does someone have fabric to cover the trailer or should I get some? Do they have stands that we could use? How do we get the Boat off the Trailer if we go that route?
 I am also available to help if anyone needs help getting their boat ready. Mine will get another good buff and I will be repainting the lower unit.(It is pretty stained.)

Hi folks

Could use some help. I travel every week to Houston, leaving on Sundays and coming home Thur night. I can bring the boat in to the cities the previous Fri/Sat if someone could get it to the show on Wednesday. It doesn't have to be stored inside and should be ready to go as long as the roads aren't slushy on Wednesday. If this won't work, I can take a weeks vacation too (I can't take a partial week off is the problem).

Thanks

It would be nice to put them on a stand. We are completely on our own when it comes to that. The marinas use roller trailers and just roll them off the trailers on to stands. I have a bunk trailer so that is not gonna happen. If you got rollers we could figure something out. Oh, there won't be anywhere to keep your trailer there, you would need to bring it home....Good time for sandblasting and painting!
