Bring a Merkur to Carlisle, get a fleece jacket!

Post by DPDISXR4Ti » Wed Feb 08, 2017 11:55 am

Over the past few years, we've noticed a disappointing increase in the number of Merkur owners who attend Carlisle but leave their Merkur at home. With fully four months to get your car ready, we thought we'd encourage everyone to not just attend Carlisle, but attend Carlisle with their Merkur!

And so today, we are announcing the Get your Merkur to Carlisle incentive. Every MCA member who pre-registers their Merkur for the Carlisle Ford Nationals by May 1st, and has their Merkur on the show-field Saturday (6/3) by 11AM, will receive a free embroidered fleece jacket. It's just that simple.

Looking forward to lots of Merkurs on Merkur Mountain in 2017!

We were thinking of collecting that info. We'll seek it out as the date gets closer.

I assume an Impala with a Merkur emblem does not count?

Unfortunately we're too busy this year. Also my oldest boy is going to Boy Scout National Jamboree, and that is not cheap.

I would vote "no". I don't think they really do anything with that designation.

Yes, you should do that right away. Our block of rooms is no longer reserved, as they open them up to the public 30 days prior to the event.

If everyone who is pre-registered could reply in this thread with their preferred jacket size, that would be great. We'll have some extras to sell, but better guidance on sizing distribution will be helpful.
