We are working with our wonderful friends at Ford to have a few surprises for us during the Convention!
Join us Sunday evening as we arrive in the Detroit area to enjoy Dinner with the Mallinsons at an excellent area restaurant!
Our first official day of the convention normally has been just a welcome day, but we've got so much going on, we are having to fill in some events here! Watch for the registration form coming in December for more details! At the end of day we will have our Reception WITH dinner and a special guest!
Our traditional car show day allowing us to welcome into the fold the new generation of SHOs to the Car Show lot! Following the display of clean cars, we'll be driving to a local building to check out some vehicles being built, but which one??
Dinner will of course be at an excellent location that is still in the works, but don't rest just yet as I'm certain there will be a parking lot gathering prior to going to sleep!
Time to do the annual waking up early to hurry up and wait at the gates of Waterford Hills for our road track day! Check out the Facility Map and other online links that'll we'll be posting on the SHO Club website soon to get ready! Coming in December will be all of the forms needed to sign up!
Dinner at another fabulous restaurant in the area to help finish up the day.
Join us on Thursday as we relax a little while checking out a few of these greats in the area: the Henry Ford Museum, Greenfield Village, the Rouge, and the Automotive Hall of Fame. These locations are all filled with amazing car history and thanks to our friends at the Doubletree Hotel, we have arranged for a discounted admission!
Our banquet will ALMOST finish off the week as we enjoy another guest speaker, car show awards, some great door prizes along with another GREAT Ford donation to the live auction! Those who went to Nashua in 2009 will remember the wonderful art work that Steve Ling brought with him to surprise us, and it helped to raise $5000 for the Intrepid Fallen Hero's Fund.
The last day before most people start to head home and we have just one last event. We can't go to Detroit and leave without touring the Joe Lewis Arena! Hockey fans of any region should "stick" around to join us for one of the greatest hockey team facilities in the world. Again, details to be released in December!
WHERE WILL 2011 BE???
We welcome everyone in the SHO Community to take our Future Conventions Survey and let us know your picks and preferences of the conventions spots we have picked.
A portion of the results (Ok, just our pick for the following year) will be made public during the banquet of the next Convention in Dearborn, MI.
