You guys are right about no buzz. I am in NJ and no one is talking about it. I will probably go and commute on Friday and use points to stay at a nearby hotel on Saturday night...or just do day passes ....Decisions ..Decisions

I'm making the trek up from Florida for SOC. If the attendance is slim, I'll still be able to get some good pizza while i'm up north

You should just go straight to Swedish Car Day the next weekend if your making that kind of trip.

If I can get my SPG back together in time, I'll be there.

BTW, looking at the SOC website, I can see why there isn't much buzz:

Pricing: Besides day passes, pricing is really prohibitive to large scale participation. It's BS that you can't get access to the parts tent with a day pass.

Schedule: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday? Why not just Friday evening, then Saturday & Sunday? 90% of people aren't taking time off from work to do Thursday or Friday events.

Info/Material organization: Website is cluttered with paragraphs and paragraphs of info. It needs to be more concise and to-the-point.

First timer for SOC, going on Friday. Bringing the Vert and hopefully the SPG.

Just joined SCNA and also going to SCD. Hoping to meet up in a convoy like last year to SCD.

C'mon, be a good boy and visit mom & dad. Also, I'm hoping to see a couple familiar faces since I missed Carlisle this year. That includes you too Erica! I still think of those epic banana bread cheesecake treats you made. If I could get those on a regular basis, I'd weigh 400 lbs
