June 24, 2012 from 10am-2pm

Not sure how many are planing to attend but Beau and I will be there if the weather cooperates. The S2 seems to be running well and the trip home yesterday was a good one through Boston with everyone moving about 70mph under the city. For a holiday it was almost a joy to be out driving...
Hope to see everyone thats local (or even not so local)

Gary,
I'll be there, also weather permitting. The best I'll be able to do as far is a Lotus goes is to bring more photos of the Elite's paint and Bondo removal ordeal.

I'll be there, also weather permitting (the forecast has improved a bit in the last 24 hours).

Looking much the same as last year, but much improved under the skin (really!). The Elan, that is.

Met up with Mike, Uncle Carl, , Foster, Nick, Russ Newton, Bill Gavin, Larry, Kenny , Al and a few others, seems a lot of folks remember me and I have problems with faces but usually know the names and voices. The weather was perfect with plenty of sun and a bit of a breeze to keep things right. A long day for sure and its always good to see and talk to folks that you haven't seen for a while. A lot of people, dogs, cars, some biles and of course food, women and some folks had brought some light beverages to keep cool. I brought a gallon of water for Beau and a half gallon for me. Took about 90 pictures and these are a few of them. Nick and I counted 24 Lotus cars, some were moving about during the show so I can't say thats a definite but pretty close and just a lot of fun to be had on a beautiful day.

Gary,
Looks like a great day and event. Thanks for posting the photo's they all look wonderful.
Was the marcos a 3L or Volvo or 1600? Any chance you could send me the photos in high res or post to flicker?

Thanks and a job well done.
Mark

I did manage to get five generations of Lotus road cars in this photo from yesterday's event. Blind luck, I didn't even realize it until looking at the photos again this morning.
