TX State Fair Car Corral Sunday, October 2, 2016 (not a TBN sponsored event)

It's coming! Mark the date on your calendars if you're going to be in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.

More info will be posted in this spot on this thread when I get it. It will probably be the same format as previous years so check out previous threads on this TEXAS FORUM.

I would have time before the event, but I plan to follow a torch red Thunderbird to Washington DC and other places before Singing River. We are leaving in September. I'll miss attending the fair and hope yall have a great time.

We're in.....always a fun time! I reached out to Les a few weeks ago and he said he'd get back to me on the date/details, but great to see the date has been set. We're still planning to do the Singing River event, but definitely want to do the State Fair.

Any update? I haven't heard anything from Les. In years past, he had to mail the passes/release form in advance. Last year I received mine the day before the event....cutting it close.

He's unavailable this week and next. He did say that he will be getting the info & passes out after the 21st.
btw. the Fair seems to always be slow at getting the passes to him.

Re: TX State Fair Car Corral Sunday, October 2, 2016 (not a TBN sponsored event)

This year State Fair seems to have avoided scheduling Thunderbirds and Corvettes the same day. Friends with Vettes say they are scheduled the last day of the Fair. "Appropriate" I told them.

ETA my friends are in the big Corvette club sponsored by Classic Chevrolet. There may be other Corvette clubs but those folks are the ones who cried foul when Thunderbirds arrived early at the State Fair and "stole" their favorite places. That could be the reason they got the very last day.

How is this coming along? I didn't get to attend last year because I didn't receive a package in the mail. Would love to come this year!

Hopefully you all have contacted Les Gray and given him your name and address as posted in previous thread on last year's thread about the fair.
