Las Vegas, Nevada appears to be the popular destination for this event.
Now we just need to know WHEN the fin crowd prefers a trip to Sin City!

When is best for you? Please cast your votes accordingly.
Feel free to add other options, too.

Thanks,
-NM

I voted late May, but if I can get my 5/15 tax deadline stuff done early, possibly early or mid May could work for me too.  Just afraid later is going to be a lot hotter in LV.

P.S. Thanks Nathan for putting up this poll.

"Late May" is Memorial Day Holiday weekend

Best time may be early-mid May, or early-mid June.

I guess we need to find out what's.... NOT.... a good date/time, rather than what's "perfect", for any of us.

We should probably AVOID Memorial Day weekend.

Teffany, you, fortunately, do not have any serious mountain ranges to traverse, to get there.

With the time and expense of driving, your best 'bet' may be to fly to Vegas, and get there, fully rested!!

Public transportation is readily available, once you arrive in V-town.

1959Fury - 2007-11-19 3:30 PM 2009? Thought this was happening next year?

I also thought we were talking about 2008.  Are we not?  If its not until 2009, forget quotes.  If we are only looking at 15-20 rooms, thats not big enough to worry about booking 1 1/2 years in advance.  I guess my old age is betraying me (and the brain atrophy), as I thought we were talking about 2008.  I wasn't at Tulsarama (didn't know about it) and I'm new to the FL crowd, so I was thinking it would be nice to meet the guys and gals that hang around this site.  How many others didn't make it there?

I would still be interested in going in 2009, but there's not much booking to be done right now for that far in advance.

Jay

Yeah - It initially started out being in 2009, but through everyone's excitement, it morphed into 2008.

So, what is it, folks? 2008 or 2009?

How did this turn into Vegas? I agree with Clive, I'd rather go wherever Miss Belvedere is.

Every vote counts (I hope).

So, which is it????
'08 or '09????

I love how everything kinda ebbs and floes with this thing.
It seems sometimes nobody is on the same page (or is that just me???)

Perhaps an additional poll is needed,
08 or 09... You decide!

(By the way... The shirts were never PRINTED with incorrect dates, Cleve... Someone noticed that early enough. That, however WAS my own mistake... This one I can't claim... Opinions are all over the board on this one.)

The guy that'll be going with me, in his 56 NY'er, who was @ Tulsa, but who is not a member (no confuser) of FWDLK
just told me that he would vote for "early June".

As he is going-to-be-going, I don't know if his opinion can be registered, in the Poll.

This is FUNNY----I just noticed that the dates for this poll ore for 2009, NOT 2008 (next year).

I thought that we were making arrangements for next year (gotta go PM Jay, now!!)

The Original date was June 2009, But i posted this on another thread ( Tulsa Reunion ) and Jokingly said it may have to be 2008 in Tulsa as they are going to Unveil Miss Belverdere Again in her Brand New Original RUST FREE Condition ( LMAO ) ..

So here is a Copy of what i posted and possibly the Confusion..

A positive prognosis

KELLY KERR / Tulsa World
Robert Carney (left) and Dwight Foster look inside the 1957 Belvedere that was unearthed from the Tulsa County Courthouse lawn this summer. Carney is a member of the Maryland family that won the car and Foster is a New Jersey businessman whose company will try to preserve the car.




By RANDY KREHBIEL World Staff Writer
11/2/2007

Complete coverage of Tulsa’s famous buried car, including a story archive, slide shows and videos.

Unearthed car's owners have plans to preserve it


Dwight Foster isn't ****eyed but he is an optimist.

Looking over the crusty remains of the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere lifted in June from a 50-year-old time capsule, the New Jersey industrialist said, "It's actually not as bad as I thought it might be."

That came as a surprise to many of those familiar with the Belvedere. Many and maybe most of its years under ground were also spent under water, and the car was much the worse for it.

But Foster and Robert Carney, a member of the Maryland family officially declared winner of the Belvedere on Thursday, have big plans for the car.

"I want to treat this car like an artifact from the Titanic," Foster said, "clean it up and scrape the barnacles off it, so to speak. I feel like there's a better than 75 percent chance we can get the engine to run."

That doesn't mean Foster and Carney intend to make the car driveable.

"We want to preserve the car, not restore it," Foster said. "We're not going to replace any more pieces than we have to get it 'up on its haunches.' "

By that, Foster said, he means setting on all four tires at an even keel. As is, the Belvedere sags badly in the back because it's rear leaf springs rusted through. Surprisingly, though, its four tires remained inflated on Thursday several months after being aired up for the first time in half a century.

Plans now call for Carney, his aunt Catherine Humbertson Johnson, 93, and mother Levada Humbertson Carney, 88, to return to Tulsa on Nov. 29 for a sort of bon voyage party for the Belvedere.

The car will be trucked to Foster's company, Ultra One Corp., in Hackettstown, N.J., for treatments with a degreaser and an acid-free rust remover made by Ultra One.

Foster knows some people want the car to be left untouched but said that's not practical.

"If nothing is done, it will be dust in two years," he said.

The intention, Carney and Foster said, is to bring the Belvedere back to Tulsa next year for a second unveiling. Enthusiasts will be able to follow the car's progress on Foster's Web site at http://www.missbelvedere.com/

Foster said portions of the car will be revealed on the Web site, but "no one will see the entire car until we bring it back here."

Foster said he is a "car person" who became interested in the Belvedere several years ago. When he saw the condition it was in, he recognized it as a chance to give his company "five minutes of fame."

Robert Carney's aunt, Catherine Johnson, and mother, Levada Carney, were declared rightful claimants to the car on Thursday. The two women are the sisters of Raymond Humbertson, whose entry in a 1957 contest to guess Tulsa's 2007 population came closest to the actual number.

Humbertson died in 1979 and his wife died in 1988. The couple had no children.

Foster and Carney hope to build a customized trailer for transporting the Belvedere to car shows around the U.S. and perhaps overseas. Both said Tulsa would always have first call for it.

"It is Tulsa's car, and it will always be Tulsa's car," Foster said.

So looks like a Re-union may have to be June 2008 , Or is everyone Still set on going to the Car where ever it is in June 2009....

Either year is fine for me. The only real benefit for me on a 2009 reunion is that my car will be finished. I don't know if my car will be complete enough for a 2008 reunion.
