Anyone for a parade? near Madison WI

Apparently we left an impression at the Dells.. Got this Email..

Hi Jim,

I was involved in the craft show for the Taste of the Dells. I saw the smart car parade which was really cool.... Do you think the club would consider being in the Black Earth Field Days Parade on August 14th? It would really be a great treat for the community to see all the cars. Field Days is Black Earth's summer celebration. It is your usual small town celebration with beer and food tents, baseball games, adult and kids games and parade on Sunday. On Sunday Tony Rocker. (Elvis impersonator) is in the parade and then plays for a while after the parade in the beer tent. Let me know if it would be a consideration. There is a fee to be in the parade, however my business would be willing to pay the entry fee for the cars.




Looks like Black Earth is not far from Madison Wi. Anybody Intrested??
Date is Sunday August 14th.

Not sure how many they want but 2 cars might be a bit sad... It would be a drive for me but it could be a fun time, and a good reason for a cruise.

Great rushfan! I knew you'd be up for it! I would have thought we would have more than 4 cars... Maybe because of the holiday weekend.

Only 4 hours from my house to the parade....

The wife was unhappy she didn't get to make it to the Dell's Rally so will put it on the calendar for a weekend getaway... maybe I can round up grandad JET and his bride too...

Well if Barny is coming then I have to come. Told the wife it is now on the official schedule and she said Barny and his wife need to stop by.

Lets see who else we can get together for this event
