Another Great Year at Carlisle!

Post by MerkurScorpio » Sun Jun 07, 2009 7:26 pm

First of all, I hope everyone who came out to Carlisle this year has made it home safely, and in the case of those with long journeys ahead, I hope your trips are fun, safe, and uneventful! Carrie and I, along with our friends Ray, Celeste, and her son Andrew, are home and safe and had an amazing time!

I want to take a moment and thank the MCA for making everything at Carlisle possible again! If it wasn't for the folks here at the Merkur Club, the greatest annual gathering of Merkurs would likely not be possible.

Also a big thanks to all of the MCA's sponsors, MerkurSport, Carlisle Productions and all the great people that make owning and driving our Merkurs such a unique privilege.

I also want to send out a HUGE thanks to Saul Rivkin who provided a helping hand, via telephone, when my shift linkage came apart in Lebanon, PA, on Thursday night. I thought I had fried my transmission again, but Saul helped shed the light on what turned out to be a relatively minor issue and we were back on the road Friday morning. Not to mention the authentic replacement part that Saul provided me on Friday afternoon to eventually replace the temporary clip I have on the HookSport now.

It was great seeing everyone again, and I've already got 2010 on the brain! Can't wait to see you all next year!

PMVH,
I am glad it all worked out for you Paul!!
Yes, we all worked hard behind the scenes for almost a year working the sponsors (SUPPORT THEM PLEASE!), planning the event, goody bag, chair and t-shirt.
As a director, I am glad to see people were happy overall. I hope I can attend in entirety next year.

I used the chrome polish that came in the goody bag on the tips of my Borla SS dual exhaust. All I can say is wow! That stuff is awesome!
