What is the Schedule for the Convention?
[CLICK FOR SCHEDULE]

What is planned for the new GTO's?
Wednesday Evening:
$8 all you can eat wings at Hooters, special give-a-ways.. still working out details

Thursday Evening:
"Bar" night with ballroom with some drink and food specials

Friday
Morning Seminars regarding Holden, HSV, the GMX281 project, and general Australian Performance. [CLICK HERE FOR THREAD]

Saturday
LS1GTO.com sponsored 04-06 classes in the popular vote show. Give-a-ways for show entrants from major vendors. Last year we had over $6,000 in prizes.

...there is much to do and many people enjoy relaxing, cleaning their cars, and hanging out in the parking lot. There are other opportunities for little outings. The GTOAA has many things planned that people can participate in. One thing I recommend is make sure you try to attend Art Fitzpatrick's Seminar. He was an artist during the 50's and 60's and did many of the hand drawn Pontiac ads. Very interesting stuff.

Any thought to having an informal or formal drive to Bowling Green (113 miles) to do a tour of the 'Vette plant and museum? Assuming they are open during that time of July... usually a GM/UAW shutdown period... just a thought.
