I can't make it to the Moonshine Festival this year, got conflicting events... So, I hope one of the guys that are local to the Dawsonville area will put something together for the Friday cruise. Last year Gene did an outstanding job on the tour, and yes, the BBQ was outstanding. I wish I could make it this year but, I'm sure you guys will have fun.

I'm going for the first time. Any special spot for Fordbarners? I'll be looking.
Will take all day Thursday to get there and have to stay out of town to have a room.
Was told to be there EARLY Friday morning.
Other advice?
Thanks,
Al

Al, sorry I'm going to miss the Moonshine Festival this year,. Last year they had all the Flatheads parked at the School by the Thunder Road Museum. Unless you registered to park 'downtown', you'll most likely be at the School. It's a short walk from the School to downtown, and you'll spot Kiwi Tony's RHD '36 ForDor Sedan, just of the circle around the Court House. In years past, we, the Cigar City Flatheads, have held a Friday Driving Tour but, because I can't make it this year, I don't know if any of the guys have set up a tour. If they did, hopefully they will post the info here. Best advice I can give you is; relax and have fun.

Al, like I said, I wish I could be there... We had to cancel our cruise up to NJ for the Race of Gentlemen, due to the expected bad weather so, I'm missing out on two cool events... Oh well... There's always next year... Have fun.

See if you can hook up with some of the guys like Kiwi Tony, Hamtown Al, Gene '50, '40 Coupe (also Gene), etc. Believe me, if I could get out of going to this wedding we've been invited to... I'd be there!!!

You know, Vic, if you REALLY wanted to catch up on going to cool events; you could go along with me and four other fools... er, FELLOWS, and drive to the 2016 roadster show. Of course, a seasoned traveler like yourself probably has driven out there every year and just kept quiet about it!
I can send you a windshield banner if you want to go.

Al, that trip is on the bucket list in fact, we've been talking about getting my '49 Cosmopolitan rag top ready to make the trip... Only things standing in the way are money and time... Have fun at the Moonshine Festival.

Vic, Grandadeo knows the way to the roadster show. Maybe you can get him to show you the way. Heck, he might go with you if you offer to lead and break the wind for him!! Knowing him; he'll tuck his roadster up behind your big Cosmo and draft you all the way!! He'll get great mileage and few bugs!! The Cosmo, on the other hand, might need a bath. I can see a long train of little roadsters tucked up behind the Cosmo like little chicks following the mother hen all the way to Pomona!
THAT would be a story!
Sorry you won't make Dawsonville but I'll see you next year... at the roadster show!!
Al

That's too bad that you can't make it to the Moonshine Festival, hope you didn't sustain much damage from the bad weather.

I'm sorry to hear you can't go, especially because of the reason. I'm hoping and praying things get better soon.

Great show but the crowds and traffic jams were too much last year.
Hope someone will take some good pics before it gets too crowded.
