First LOG for me & a very pleasurable experience.. I met Greg Z, Nick (elanner), Ross Robins, Tony Vaccaro, Mike Braun (Elancoupe), Glen Shostack & of course Ted Taylor.

I attended with my 13 year old daughter & she enjoyed herself!!

Here's a few of my pictures..

Phil, great seeing you and Gabriella at LOG36 and I'm glad you enjoyed yourself! It was an event filled weekend and I wish I had more time to spend with you, but with almost 400 participants to deal with I was a bit busy.

Here I am with my 1966 Elan S4 and the re-enactors who marched into the concour field.

Actually Barber Motorsports Park...brainchild of milk-tycoon George Barber, not Skip.

It's within three hours of where I live so I'm looking forward to seeing you all there! :D

Fantastic venue. Gotta put this one on the schedule. :) About two hours from Atlanta Airport to pick up the better half.

Toured the Barber Museum on the way back from the Asheville LOG. An absolute must see for any Lotus or motorcycle enthusiast. I believe it is the world's largest collection of Lotus cars outside of Classic Lotus. Several storey building with 600 motorcycles, all beautifully displayed and curated. The grounds and track are incredible, like a PGA golf course. Track wasn't in use the day I visited, but have seen TV coverage of the Indy cars and it looks absolutely fantastic.

All the best to the organizers and volunteers.

Thanks Stu for putting in a good word! My club (LLSE) is playing a minor hand in organising this one. You are correct about the Barber Museum, and by the time LOG 37 rolls around they should have the new expansion open which will bring the displayed bikes to about 1200. I've had a VIP-tour of the museum, led by an employee who is big in Lotus-enthusiast circles in the southeast, and I got to see the 'secret underground vaults' where the bikes waiting for display in the expansion are kept. I also got to see a Lotus resto-project that they were working on close-up in the shop.

The Vintage Days event at the museum in October is truly great for the motorbike crowd, or anybody who enjoys gearhead stuff really. The NASA museum up in Huntsville is very much worth seeing while you're down at LOG too, as it is NASA's largest museum and is located there because Huntsville is where NASA does most of its R&D. Those of you passing through Nashville should also check out the Lane Motor Museum. I haven't been there yet but some friends and I are scheming to go up for a weekend on our motorbikes. If you make it down to the Gulf coast in your travels, the USS Alabama in Mobile Bay is worth a stop, as is the US Naval Aviation museum in Pensacola. Also if you're into ghosts, the southeast is supposedly the most haunted part of USA and there is no shortage of information about that, probably a few tours you can take too.

Southern Appalachia has some EXCELLENT twisty roads too! Starting about an hour north of Atlanta, the hills and curves stretch all the way to Maine. There is also a brand-new track and visitor-centre at Porsche's new US HQ right by Atlanta's airport. The southeast also has a great list of craft breweries if you're into that.

Sorry to get on a ramble; I do think that those who make the trip will be in for good stuff! :D

I tried to contact Ryan a week ago for a photo at his suggested email address but have not heard back.
I think there are many attendees who would purchase photos if they were contacted directly. The announcement on this thread gets quickly buried by other subjects.

Hi Chris, Ryan is back at College so he may be a bit focused on school (as he should be). I'll drop him a note to pay attention to my best Lotus friends :D

Got my framed and matted panorama photo from Doug Chadwick. He always does a great job of shooting all the cars at the Concour event and his custom mating and framing is top shelf. Hanging in my Lotus Garage with a few of his other photo's from past LOGS. Can you spot them ?
