Mike,

I was just having fun with you, so we would welcome the help, but please don't feel pressured to do so.

Hello Michael,
Unfortunately the self serve car wash nearest the hotels is gone. However another is not too far from there in old down town Gahanna on Mill Street (Rt. 62).

Hoping I'm not too late to get in on this party.  I'm new to the PUB, but I've got a 250SL that needs some serious freshening up.  Count me in!

Should we be replying here if we plan to attend, or is there some other registration thread?  I plan to be there, with or without one of me Pagodas.

Yes,

The "PUB 2015, Who's Attending and from Where" thread will appear soon.  It will have who is attending, where they are coming from, if they are driving their Pagoda and if anyone will be riding with them. This will allow people to organize convoys, share rides, share  accommodations, and get an idea of the number of Pagodas participating in the event.
This is Joe's answer to your question.
That is great that you are coming, better if you bring one of your Pagodas.  ;D
You have a great story to tell to those that don't know it (and to re-tell to those that do know it).

Guys,

One of our PUB committee members is overseas, and will be back shortly.  We will get back together and do the real planning to figure out costs to attend, get quotes for all the services we need, porta potties, etc.  I would guess we should have some threads up buy early May.  We have already set up a separate billing and payment system for the event which will make it easier to deal with (at least for me).

Hang in there.

As usual, Mark and I will attend, have not missed one since 2005.
Just make sure we both have name tags this time.
In the past Mark never had one, always had to make up one by hand.

Thanks!  I'll make all efforts to bring one of the cars.  It's soooo close to being road worthy, but until I've put some miles on it I'd be real nervous about such a long trip.  I suppose I could throw it in my trailer and give it a ride ;-)

Also happy to tell the story, though it's not over yet.   I've been a bit side tracked from the 113s over the past 2 years, but will try to reinvigorate.  Trouble is I'm going to be in Alaska all summer so the distractions continue...

Peter,
Whether you bring your car or not, it will be great to meet you in person.
After all, that is one of the great things about these types of events.

I would have loved to attend but i will be cruising the Autobahn in Deutschland at that time (unfortunately the Pagoden will have to stay at home.  Maybe next year.   Hope you all have fun.

Whilst I have sort of indicated that I will be there, I have not categorically stated that i will be there however my airline and accommodation bookings infer my intentions.

Yes I will be there.

thanks

I would definitely like to attend. Can somebody tell me the hours each day that we expect to be heavily and deeply in thought and rhetoric regarding our pagodas so I can plan accordingly? especially for flight times

Great souvenir videos. I wonder how many of the members who were in that PUB would attend this year too?
