I think we had 30 Marauders/40 arrendees at Las Vegas... That wasn't a bad turn out! And it was FUN. Looking back I wish we had planned more night time group activities... But hey, it was Vegas, and a Marauder is going to Maraud in Vegas.

Some one needs to step up and plan.

Thank you Bluerauder... Great historical data! 3 Awards? Embarrassing.

I tried reaching out to the BMW club to run the course on their track day but they were not responsive. Even if a track event cannot be managed there is always the option to drive the course as a guest in one of the track cars at 55mph. Not as good as the Marauderville Daytona or Indy but very similar. Here are the details on the guest driving event...

There is a track which seems reasonable for our club and is only 1.5 hours from Watkins Glen which means many of the other events listed below would also apply as day trips.

In addition to the raceway the Watkins Glen state park is very impressive and very close.

Watkins Glen is at the bottom of Lake Senneca which is surrounded by wineries.!2i484!4f13.1

As well as breweries.

Activities near Watkins Glen include:

This is mainly a library but does have a few cars on display. It would be 1-2 hour stop max.

The Corning Museum of glass is very good and very well known as enjoyable by almost all visitors an would consume most of an entire day in the itenerary.

Also near Corning is a glider museum:

I visited Letchworth State Park which is 1.5 hours from Watkins Glen and is the most visited state park in the United States and after visiting I know why. Excellent easy place to visit for an afternoon.

A half hour from Watkins Glen is the Curtis Museum:

An hour from Watkins Glen is a Casino:

And we also have a boat cruise option.

As you can see their are many options.

I would be willing to do some of the work but would need some on-site assistance with hotel/track rental etc.

Based on the feedback I still think their is some interest in continuing this event which now will have to be a 2019 event. I agree with many that if we say where they will come. If there is enough planning time a really good event will occur. Their are also enough options above that could be voted on to decide on to make this a group effort rather than a small committee selecting some of the options.

I do not want to see this event end and that is why I put the time in to put this together.

Does this plan have enough support to make a 2019 proposal for MVXV? Who in the area could support some of the groundwork?
I have spent 2018 revising the plan and getting more detailed information. I sent Mercman, RF Overlord, and MM03MOK all PM's with the revised details. I also have sent the revised details to I have received no feedback.

Does anyone have a way to contact the management to determine if my revised details are being considered for a 2019 Marauderville?

89 Mark7 BB to LSC (totaled)
91 Mark7 LSC SE
93 Mustang Cobra (stock)
97 Grand Cherokee Limited (V8!)
03 Mercury Marauder
03 Lincoln Town Car
05 Dodge Magnum (Hemi)
69 Impala 2dr (406 c.i)
58 Pontiac Parisienne
