PUB 2015?
« on: December 21, 2014, 14:44:19 »
Is there going to be a PUB 2015?  If so is there a tentative date?  Usually it is the last weekend in July.  I'm looking forward to this event.  My work has vacation picks out this week so I have to plan ahead...

I have mentioned to Joe that the last weekend of July is not good.
Reason being that it has a major conflict with the Ohio State fair.
I recommended moving it to late August or September (cooler).

The last Sunday in July, and indeed the last weekend of July is the Concours d'Elegance of America in Plymouth Michigan. This attracts a lot of Mercedes owners; on the Friday night before last year we had 40+ come for Autobahn night. Don't do anything for me, but that's not a good weekend...

A lot of us that drive our 113s to PUB don't have A/C, so if possible an earlier or later date (read cooler temps) would work better.

I too plan to go, I'm sure Joe will let us know in time. I need to know quite early since I need to plan respite care for a short term stay for my wife, unfortunatley scheduling for that is required well in advance.

As for A/C I have no need for it, open windows and the soft top up will look after that for me  ;D I have no plans to drive thru the Mohave Desert where temps go high, last I was there it was 120F

My objective, too, is to finish my car in May or June and make the PUB trip as my first long outing, with some other stuff along the way.
Too early could shut me out.  I really would like to participate in a PUB.

Hi Tom,

If the timing is right then we could travel together with both our cars :) Let us see when the date will be.

Well, there are a lot of major car events already planned for this summer.  It looks like September 12th week end is the best option for PUB this year. Sorry I cannot make it work for everyone. Sorry it is your work month again Pat! What's everyone's thoughts?  I have tried to schedule around three major Mercedes-Benz Club week ends, the Concourse at S. Johns, two Holiday week-ends, a national Hot Rod Show here in town, and others. The summer just is too busy this year.  

Average temperatures here in Blacklick in Septemper are 77F high and 54F low. It is traditionally one of the driest months also.

If that date is firm I think I can make it.  I'll put in a vacation slip now before that week gets taken...

Works for me. ;D 

Joe, thank you for offering up your premises, time and expertise yet again.  This would be my second PUB and am really looking forward to attending once again.
 
I know I'm not exactly close but if there is anything I can do to assist Joe, please let me know.

Hi Joe,

First thank you very much for providing the space and the opportunity for our cars and ourselves to meet :) for this great event. What I have read from past PUB's it certainly  promises to be the event for 2015!

September 12th 2015 weekend sounds great and I will certainly attend. I will try to get a Canadian group together and we then would travel as a caravan. I'm hoping to have the Benz Dr. part of the caravan, along the way we would properly pick up additional American Pagoda Member's. Having Dan part of the group will provide additional piece of mind should any of our cars have any hick ups.

Please do let us know if the September 12th weekend is firm (I need to make special arrangements for a loved one while I'm away from home, it is just a matter of booking ahead).

Once the date is firm I will start a tread for Quebec and Ontario Members that wish to be part of a group to travel together to the PUB2015 event.

Joe, I can make the weekend of September 12th. I really look forward to it.
I'll PM you to see what I can help with.
When we get closer to the date, we'll see how many Pagodas we can caravan from the Chicago area and from the North and West of Chicago.
Thanks !

I guess a busy summer just means we're all enjoying life to the fullest. As for me, I must wait until I get my teaching schedule for fall semester. If the timing works, I plan to join Dieter's convoy.

I'm planning on attending. I've never been to one before and was trying to figure out how many days to take off. Is it just Saturday and Sunday?
