June 5th 2010 will mark the 2ed time Steve Plunkett has asked for Amphicar to come to his charity event
Last year 3000 classic cars ,13 Amphicars and a pond what a riot!!!
The entrance fee has be waved for us as we give rides for charity.
Planning for our group has been left to Barb as I have my hands full getting everybody's Amphi ready for spring swimming.
I know she is planning a BBQ at my motorhome one of the nights.
Most of the cast from American Graffiti will be there so a portable dive in theater has been arranged in an adjacent field for all!
Steve is a collector of Cadillacs and owns over 60
go to his web site for all the details and photos,
They love the Amphicar being there.Last year we made a spot on TV..Car crazy!@!!

The weather forecast must have scared a few off but had 10 Amphicars,
would have been 11 but rental company would not let Mark rent trailer if going out of state,,He /and wife came without Amphi.
There was no Rain Sat, but lots Friday night so fields(golf coarse) were flooded, by end of Sat, with over 3000 cars driving on greens,they were destroyed,We had to delay rides till noon and quite at 3pm as grass at ramps were 6 inches of mud!
In that time frame 5 Amphicars giving rides raised $750.00 for Steve Plunkets Charity drive! Thanks go to Greg , Ron , Bill . Ken ,me, and helpers,Ray and Bob for loading folks into cars.
A BBQ was held at my motorhome for about 20 put on by Barb, Sue,Husbands at the grill and severed up to the music in the big tents near by,..
I snuck in to here "Lightning is stricking again and again" by Original singer Lou Cristie. Then it really did start to rain ...again..Sunday morning grass around motorhome was 2 inches deep with water, I got out and home but a big rig beside us SANK!

Thanks for this great update. I was thinking about all of you guys
this past weekend. Boy all of this rain sounds like Boston last
August. Glad to hear that you raised so much money for a good cause &
you had fun. Can't wait for Raystown!! Ina
