Re: Texas Volvo R and non-R GTG in Austin - June 17th, 2006 (slowrey)

Sounds like a good wish list with Beasley.<p>I can't attend. <br>I let a friend of mine know about though, he will likely be there.<p>I had until June 3rd. Out of state for work the rest of summer after that.<p>I'll take one shirt, two if you have extras.<p>Can I paypal you Sean?

Bump for the dealership providing lunch, offering software downloads without any LABOR charges and also because the event has changed to 11:00am.

It's more than a LOT of dealers would do. I'm just thankful that they agreed to all of my requests and that they are going to staff up a bit for our event.

Yes you can send payment for the shirts. Flat cost of $25.00 unless you want them shipped to you.

Well guys I've only had THREE swedespeeders say that they are coming. Is this all? Would the following week June 24th be any better?<br>

If we don't have at least 10-15 people sign up by the 9th, I'll cancel the event. <p>Sorry but it wouldn't be worth it to have the dealership go to all of the trouble.

Re: (Copeland)

Well from someone who has hosted several gtg's (not Volvo) I can tell you, there will always be lurkers and last minuters that show up with no prior notification. I've seen where 12-15 cars were expected and instead <br>42 rolled in!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> But that was a good thing. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Keep that in mind.<p>Also, <br>I might be able to stick around the area long enough to make it but the R will be gone in transit. so for rsvp, I'll give you a <I>if it all possible I'll be there,</I> even if I have to roll up in a frineds, ..gulp <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/redface.gif" BORDER="0"> ...S40 T5. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

I have to have a minimum for them to be even made. I really would love for everyone to be able to have one but I can't afford to front the money if people aren't going to buy em' in advance.

I plan on being there if at all possible. I am currently off on the 17th and if I remain off I will be there. I will also purchase a shirt either way and plan on sending the money via Paypal tomorrow or Sunday at the latest, waiting to see if my wife wants one also. I don't anticipate having to work on the 17th but occasionally things change in the airline business. I'll let you know about the shirts by Sunday night at the latest. Thanks for all of the work.

Not a problem guys. I'm just trying to make sure that there's going to be enough door prizes, enough food and enough shirts. I don't want to leave anyone out but then again I don't want to over expect and then be stuck with 20 extra shirts.<br>
