We will do the draw after lunch. Registering Attendance I will need numbers attending for Lunch as soon as possible so we can lock down our reservation. As per usual, add your forum name to the list and how many are attending. I will do a final number shout-out the week prior to the Cruise. Cruise etiquette and other notes: We'll post up further instructions and info in coming weeks. One important thing I want to suggest is that you try pair up with another vehicle ? a buddy if you will. I want to avoid having a situation where the whole group is constantly stopping for catch ups. If you have a GPS or smart phone with GPS and maps installed, use it; and plan the route in advance, using the google map link provided as your guide. Set way points if you know how, so you can stay on the route. We'd really love to see you there, so save the day. Any questions, feel welcome to ask.
