Syosset, NY is right by me and I’m off on Sundays ill have to Wright that one down.

Maybe remind the guys a week or two before each one.

01-22-2008, 05:59 AM
If that is OK I will post reminders a couple weeks in advance of the events, but some of the events do have registration deadlines!

Not sure if your interested but the Long Island Thunderbird Club Chapter of the ITC www.litb.org that puts on the show in Syosset, their members caravan off the island to some of the other events listed above!

Being a cool zero out today kind of hard to think about the events of summer now, but I Hope everyone has a Great & Safe Thunderbird Cruise and Show season!

I am sorry to say that the Thunderbird Cruise scheduled for June 6, 2008 at 6:00 pm at Family Ford is cancelled for 2008! Family Ford and Greg Stevenson in particular is involved with the ALL Ford Nationals at Carlisle and will not be logistically able to have the ALL Thunderbird Cruise In event due to that involvement! Being in contact with Greg, he did however mention that it might again be a possibility again in 2009! Once again I would like to thank Family Ford ad all of the Thunderbird owners for all of their support and Family Fords fantastic hospitality in past years and with any luck a future Thunderbird event!

I am again sorry for this late news but I only found out today that the event will not be held and I am doing my best to contact all who have an interest in this event! Feel free to pass this along to anyone else that you may know who was or is interested in the status of this event!
