Hi guys. Its been a while since my last post but I do read most of yours. A few of you will know me lots of you won't. This will be my sixth trip to Celina. We don't travel the farthest to get there for sure but it is about 2200 miles round trip.
To be honest I was gonna skip this year but my oh so patient wife Lynne told me we were going and I was going to be sweet and have a good time. So we will be there.
I think the location is becoming a little stale. Not that the town of Celina could do any more, I don't think any town could or would. But to me the whole trip has a "been there done that" feel. And with an almost 38 hour drive I doubt I will do it after this year.
I'm not trying to raise a stink but why don't we move this deal next year. I don't have any of the answers like where, how orwho but I do know why. Sadly, I'm afraid Celina has peaked and we will never get the nearly 70 cars therelike in the past. There is just nothing new about going to Celina.
I have heard the idea of having it at Celina every other year and somewhere else on alternate years.Like I said I don't have any answers just the question. Or is it a realization, we gotta move.

Celina, When all is said and done, there is nothing left to say and do.

Moving Celina would probably be similar to moving the AACA fall
Hershey automotive swap meet and show. It would be interesting to see
a count on how many amphi owners that would like to stay, have it
moved or do Celina every other year.

Whatever happens in the future regarding Celina if it is moved
someone is going to have their hands full with all the logistics of
organizing such a large event. Celina takes many hours (thanks Mike),
meetings with town officials, blocking rooms, etc throughout the year
for all to come together. Plus a police department that isn't Barney
Fife infested.

Like you Tommy I too don't have any answers however we are looking
forward to seeing you guys and having fun. No extra baggage this year
as we are coming alone. I won't miss the nephew loading up the
gunpowder and firing the cannon off on the townhouse deck table, and
scaring the hell out of me and probably the neighbors.

I've always been a big booster for the Celina venue. Hell, I'm even the
boob who cobbled together that freakish "Why Celina?" webpage on the
Club website (http://www.amphicar.com/WhyCelina.htm). But Tommy's on
beam as always: After seven years, year after year, even I have to admit
that even damned near made-to-order-for-Swim-Ins Celina is starting to
get a little stale. So maybe a little hiatus or a bit of changeup,
perhaps holding the big annual bash there only every couple-few years,
might freshen up the experience.

Now that I finally have my hands on that long sought affordable
older-but-decent RV together with my rugged and improbably ancient car
trailer, the whole traveling amphibious family road show is at long last
complete. So, venue-wise I'm ready to say "surprise me"...Just don't
make me crawl over those Rockies! I'm looking forward to seeing those
suggestions over the next few months.

As for me, I'm off to Bad Arolsen, Germany tomorrow for a month for
work.

Later,
Bilgey
