The last weekend in April, April 27-29, will be Mopars/Musclecars (not sure which) at the Strip in Las Vegas. Posted this a couple of weeks ago but looks like it was lost.

We are pleased to announce some exciting News. But before we do, we would like to bring you up to date.

The new management did not want to pursue any more automotive events at either property. We have worked with their staff to try to find a workable solution. Unfortunately a workable option did not present itself. We appreciate all that the Cannery provided and wish them further success.

The 2018 Host Hotel is the Down Town Grand. They have greeted this opportunity with open arms hospitality. Here is what you need to know.

Code: 180426MOPA

The Grand Features 600 Rooms, Roof Top open air bar with swimming pool. Two parking structures, (parking is free with room validation). Additional Restaurant choices within walking distance.

Over size parking is available for $5.00 a day fee within one block at the Main Street Station, over size parking lot on Stewart Avenue. Semi Parking is available near by on Main Street. More directions later.

The Downtown Grand has a resort fee of $24.99 a day.. This fee is in addition to the room rates for that weekend.. There are 4 hotel/casino's in the same area that do not have resort fees.. Happy to share info on them if anyone has interest..

I was thinking about making a spaghetti lunch for the group again at this event.. But since I couldn't seem to get feedback on how many were planning on attending I've bagged the idea.. I'm a planner and last minute figuring for this is not something I want to mess with.. So I'll just worry about the party of 4 I'm with..

Looks like I will be there with the 71 Demon. Heard back from Andrew a while ago & he said he would not make it this year.

Yes, the slanted class is pretty bleak this year. Not as much fun but, look at the bright side, the worst you can do is take runner up.

Yikes. Sorry to hear that. Sounds like the West needs a new dose (or re-invigoration) of ringleaders and rabble rousers!
