LOG36 Princeton, NJ

PostPost by: Certified Lotus » Fri May 13, 2016 1:54 am

Greetings to all our fellow Lotus owners and enthusiasts!

We are two and a half months away from The Lotus Owners Gathering 36 (LOG36) in Princeton, New Jersey August 5th thru 7th and do we have a great weekend planned for everyone who participates.

The LOG36 planning committee continues to come up with all sorts of creative ideas for this LOG and we are excited about everything we have planned.

A very important date to be aware of is MAY 20th! It's the last day for early registration and you will save $25 for registering now. After a postmark of May 20 it will cost you $125 to register. Don't delay, get your registration in the mail today.

More importantly, early registration has privileges this year. Saturday night banquet seating selection and early entry into Grounds for Sculpture Sunday morning will be based on post mark dates of registration.

Another important consideration is the booking of your hotel rooms. We are very close to selling out Friday and Saturday night and so far we have more than 200 people who are arriving on Thursday night. Looks like LOG36 will have an early start! Don't delay on securing your hotel room at the Princeton Marriott Forrestal.

In case your a late planner or just can't commit, we do have an overflow hotel down the street (Westin Hotel) but remember, registration goes up to $175 after June 17th.

We expect this LOG to have significant participation. You may never see this many Lotus' in one place again!

Keep up to date on all the most recent news and information by checking the LOG36 web site on a regular basis.

Join us, we are looking forward to a wonderful weekend with all our Lotus friends.

I hope that the ethanol content is compatible with older seal materials.

Bingo Phil :mrgreen: We will have special Lotus branded beer at LOG36. Working closely with River Horse Brewery to create this. Three types. The bottles will certainly be collectible. The beer is spectacular!

I mentioned to my wife that there'll be a "Lotus beer" at LOG.

She said, "I wonder what makes it a Lotus beer. Does it leak?"

Hardy har har, what a comedienne. I threatened to leave her at home after a comment like that!

LOG36 ? SOONER THAN YOU THINK!
August 5th ? 7th, 2016

Hello all Lotus owners and enthusiasts,

Are you counting the days until LOG36? We are! The LOG36 committee has a great weekend planned for all the registered participants who will be coming. As a matter of fact, close to 200 LOGers will be checking into our host hotel, The Marriott Princeton Forrestal on Thursday, a full day before LOG36 actually starts! There are still a few (and we mean only a few) rooms available for Friday and Saturday night. Don?t delay your booking.

The second deadline date for Lotus Ltd registration is June 17th to receive the $125 registration fee. After that it goes to $175. Your postmark date is the deciding factor on how much you pay for registration. Remember, you must book your hotel room and register with Lotus Ltd separately.

Speaking of postmark date, the earlier you register the better your seating is for the Saturday night banquet and the early arrival for Grounds for Sculpture on Sunday morning (no moaning that you didn?t get the banquet room seating you wanted or couldn?t arrive early for Sunday mornings event).

We have so many special things planned it will be hard to keep up with everything going on. A couple of insights:

? We will have ?special editions? of Riverhorse Beer at LOG36 that features Lotus historic events on the labels. You will want to collect all three types and as well as enjoy this local crafted beer which is only available at the bars during LOG36.
? A very special book is being published by Corterie Press just in time for LOG36. ?Dahlstrom: Lotus The Adverts?. It will be signed by its creators and the artist at LOG36. We are sure you will want to purchase several copies of this very limited signed book.
? There will be a swap meet during the Friday night reception. If you have Lotus parts, collectables, clothing, etc. we will provide a table for you to display and sell your items. Contact Foster Cooperstein to register in advance at [email protected]
? Volunteers, we still need a few more. The special goodies you will receive as a volunteer will be sought after by everyone else at LOG. Become a LOG Guru! Contact Lee Klauber at [email protected]

Keep checking the LOG36 website for weekly updates. We can?t wait to see you!

I have to ask: Is anybody heading down to Princeton from the Boston/New England area with spare room on a trailer? :-)

Phil, glad your coming to LOG! I've always had a great time and enjoyed every minute of each of them. More Lotus fun than you can imagine.

The LOG36 Committee once again spent another full Saturday to review all the planning details for LOG36. Did we mention we have so many cool things that are unique to a LOG that you don't want to miss any of it? We have almost 200 people arriving on Thursday......they are arriving a full day early and know something special is going on ;-)

You will note in the photo below that Lou is presenting the fine details of the android and iPod apps that have everything you could ever want to know about LOG36 on them. The release will be right before LOG36, you wont be able to live without the apps!

VOLUNTEERS! We have more than half of the number registered volunteers we need! What are you waiting for? Don't be left out of the highly sought after volunteer crew. Once we have the number of people needed we will be closing out the registered volunteers. They are the only ones who get the very special and limited edition LOG Guru shirts, not to mention special goodie bags filled with swag and the ultra cool volunteer lounge. You can volunteer in 2 hour increments. Don't be left out, contact Lee Klauber . He can get you in ;-)

Did we mention the very limited edition LOG36 River Horse beer that will be available only at LOG36? Wait until you see the specially designed Lotus labels for three different types of beer. We can't wait for you to taste them, collect them and maybe even bring some home. Limited supply, only at LOG36!

Friday and Saturday night at the host hotel, The Marriott Princeton Forrestal is almost sold out. Don't delay for the Lotus event of the year!

Had a BLAST! Great event and plenty of beautiful Elans (old & new) were there. Embarrassingly only one Plus2. Here's a slideshow I threw together from my wife & I's perspective. :)

Mine will be at LOG 37.

Here's a slideshow I threw together from my wife & I's perspective. :)


Anybody know anything about the blue Esprit in the 7th picture? I know that only something like three of that colour were imported into USA, and I used to own one of them. Another one of them lives one county over from me, oddly enough!
