we have did a Saturday 1 year to see if it help attendance.  
It did not help doing a saturday, and at that time, Saturday cost 1k more than a friday.. when you ask why do **THEY**.. there really isnt a They. it is ME.    that does this show...  WITH A LOT OF HELP FROM FELLOW AMCERS OVER THE YEARS..   either donations, sponsorship. or just helping at the vent... It IS NOT a club event, and there is no big corp to pay the bill. its all  on me....
Sorry you won't be able to join in the Great time we have...
Mike

Understood, figured it had to do with track cost being lower on Friday. 
Have a great time and will look at my schedule and may be able to attend but cannot guarantee.

Too bad it's on a Friday, I am heading back from Boston that weekend and was thinking about cutting a little further west before south to attend. Why do they plan this in a weekday? possible track schedule issue?

The border closure was just extended to 21 May and will probably be extended again after that.

If you've been reading the news, Ontario, the closest province to Ohio, is in it deep. You really don't want us anywhere near you.

Too bad, I always had the idea to do GAD"one of these years". Guess I've missed out on this one.

Grey hair is not a right, it's a privilege.

Hi Folks.
Elsa and I have been busy busy preparing behind the scenes for our Final GAD Event.
I spoke with Steve Tilson of the **Crazy Gringos**   also known as the GAD band..
they indeed will be playing for us Friday night at the Post party together..

Masks are you choice, Do what makes you comfy.. but i would Expect unmasked people in attendance if you are concerned.

I Don't think our Canadian Friends are going to be able to attend... the border atm is still closed from what i hear..

Looks like the POS is going to be able to play along this year...  on the down side to that tho... I will still be running the Jerico 4 spd. this season. too much fab work is needed to have the Liberty 5 spd. in by GAD date. so i plan to make that upgrade next winter.

Thanks to all that help with the event...
Mike..
oh yea, Elsa said there will be Lumpia (Spring rolls) at our get together at the house..
