Display/Gift Items for 2017 Florida Glassic Gathering March 8 or 9
Shown in picture are two rare
vintage (new in wrapper) vinyl albums of Chet Atkins and Jerry
Reed in Jerry's pre-Bandit days which will be on display. Chet
was the owner of a Glassic Roadster at the time. They both
played guitar and sang on one of the albums.
Each Glassic owner who attends will receive a blue iron-on Glassic patch (shown) and one lucky owner who brings a Glassic will win the hat in the picture as a door prize. All Glassic owners attending will receive a number of hand-out "business style" cards to present to interested parties.
All of this is due to the generosity of Don Davis, the Annexmaster of the Glassic Annex website.
There is still plenty of time to plan to attend. The primary date is March 8 with 9 as the severe weather backup day. The actual date will be chosen and announced ten days before the event. Please check the Glassic Annex website or prior posting for further details. Hope to see you there. Wayne # 141.
INFORMATION UPDATE as of 2/7/17
Six Glassics are already scheduled to be at the upcoming March gathering. This equals last year's record which, most likely, will be broken for the most Glassics in one place since they left the factory
With the good eats and interesting International Harvester Museum tour, plus having a great contingency plan in the unlikely event of bad weather, it promises to be yet another one-of-a-kind Glassic event.
Lots of time left for Glassic owners/friends to make plans to be on
hand come March 8 or 9 at Leesburg.

From Don, The Annexmaster:
This years event is scheduled to be held on March 8 with March 9th as a severe weather backup. A local enclosed building has been reserved if there turns out to be moderate rain either day.
Wisconsin cheese curds and crackers, plus soft drinks will be
on hand, plus attendees can sign up for a catered barbecue noon
meal including sides and dessert. Attendees will be able to take
the onsite tour of hundreds of restored IH items from
combines/tractors/big rigs to several Scouts on down to
refrigerators/kid size toy models.
The format will be similar to last year with mostly informal
discussions, car looking, and sharing information of
pictures/brochures. I will be once again taking video (hopefully
improved) of each set of Glassic/owners, plus some of Joel
who is Joel?
reminiscing. (Will try to take video of those pictures Joel had with
him last year.)
Early indications are that two to three times the number of
Glassics/owners will attend this special opportunity event as showed
up last year.
Hopefully, the good weather trend on event day will continue.
