Hi all,

Just a quick update. Last time I checked, there were 82 hotel registrations!  We would appreciate if everyone registering for the reunion do so ASAP.  I'm going to start printing name tags and vehicle cards.

I'm very excited to tell everyone the Wrangler Salute concept vehicle will be on display at the reunion:

Jeep will also donating raffle and door prizes.  The Glosses have been working very hard.  Jeep dealerships from Columbia and Jeff City will also have vehicles there.  I tried to get them to donate a new Rubicon for the raffle but they didn't like that idea  (http://smileys/smiley19.gif" align="middle)

..... anywho, lets get registered!

Great job Jeff, Art and Darlene on the reunion!  It was a great event.  The hotel was very nice, the parking lot had plenty of room for everything and the banquet was really good.  Jpet's presentation and photos of his trips out west were amazing.

Columbia is a fun town to cruise around in in a flat fender also.  Most of the Mizzou kids were amazed such "primitive" vehicles ever existed.. [smiley=rolleyes.gif]  The best part of Friday night was when I headed downtown to eat and parked next to a jacked up JK with LEDs, lift kit, wheels and tires, winches, big stereo, etc, etc.  The kid was dumbfounded when he asked what kind of vehicle it was and I told him it was a jeep!  He was then even more amazed when he asked what all the sticks in the floor was for!!  Kids...

Anyway, great show and I look forward to next year!  I didn't get a chance to take any photos, so if anyone did please post them!
