Good luck with the next deployment!

It will take some one with more tech sophistication than I have to do it, but I wish we could do a web cam type of thing. Anybody up for this?

Bill-My wife and I are going to try and make your get together.
We're 100 miles N.E. of L.A. so it would be pretty easy for us to come.
We have a '69 XR-7.
Sometimes we can't make plans until the last minute due to our work schedules, though
we're usually off during these winter months. And, we live in the mountains where snow can cause us to be housebound as coming and going we have really steep slopes with no barricades so only my wife's 4WD is our way out.
I'll try to call in the next day or so.
Thanks a million.

Bill,
I would like to stop by. I just picked up my most recent Cougar, a clean 68 standard and am excited to hear about the Arizona Cougar community.

Bill,

I am going to take my kids on Satruday, this will be the first time for us. Is there any place to get tickets at a discount?

Thanks
Jason

The best deals are usually on Craigs list. They do have discounts on Children's tickets, but Saturday is also the most expensive day to go.

Hi Bill. Want to thank you for allowing my brothers and I to come early to your place last year. I had the CJ Cougar at the sale. I was watching the sale last night and going over the fun we had last year, meeting Brian the GTE, Don the ring leader, Kevin Marti, Dave the registrar, and all the other fine folks. The atmosphere there was really amazing, the weather wasn't half bad either. I did sell a really nice Mach 1 this summer at Mecum. Thought about waiting til Barrett-Jackson just for an excuse to go to the sale. The difference in money might have paid for the trip. I hope the guy with the CJ Cougar this year does well. Wish I had a do over for mine. The two Cougars last night sold well. Actually pretty good for first day. Thanks again and have fun this year. Steve
