Thursday night is a Banquet dinner with special guests and VIP’s, at our host hotel, The George Washington. (http://www.wyndham.com/hotels/virginia/winchester/the-george-washington-a-wyndham-grand-hotel/hotel-overview) Please be sure to make your own hotel reservations. Rooms are being held at a special rate for Ponies at the Point attendees.
After breakfast, we host a 100 mile Poker Run from Summit Point, WV, all the way to the fairgrounds in Carlisle, PA. We will stop for lunch at the Shamrock Restaurant in Thurmont, MD. They will be preparing a special menu for us and providing a Poker Run parking area (price of lunch is not included in registration). There will be plenty of “photo-op’s” along the way, as our route takes us off the highway and along the path less traveled, including a nice stretch of Michaux State Forest. Once we arrive at Carlisle, where the Ford Nationals will be underway, there will be plenty to keep you busy until our evening program begins.

On Friday night June 3rd, Team Shelby will invade the Ford Expo Center for some Texas style BBQ and socializing (BYOB). If things go well, there may be a few surprise guests and presentations as well.

Once the sun begins to set, we will bring back our popular “Cars Under the Stars” car show. Everyone has been to a car show during the day, but how many of you have experienced one during the twilight hours, and then under the light of the moon and stars?

Over the course of the weekend, we have the distinction to unveil not just one, or two, but three new vehicles that have been authorized by Shelby American, and will be produced by Legendary G.T. Continuation Cars.

Stop by the Team Shelby hospitality tent anytime over the weekend to grab some shade and rest your feet, while you prepare yourself for the rest of the day. There may even be a cold drink waiting for you there.

Saturday June 4th is the busiest day at Carlisle. Wear your comfortable shoes and prepare to walk, as there will be close to 3000 (if not more) cars on the show field. Then there are also the vendor displays, the Ford Expo Center, indoor featured marque displays, and the swap meet area. In the afternoon there will be the burn-out competition, as well as the Ms. Carlisle contest. Later in the day, if you have registered for the parade, all our cars line up for a short cruise to downtown Carlisle. The center of town is blocked off and only the parade cars are allowed to drive in and park. You will be on your own to enjoy the live music, restaurants, and shops around the center square.

Sunday morning, enjoy one last walk through the fairgrounds, then head home!

Our host hotel is the “New” Comfort Inn in Carlisle, PA. (www.comfortinncarlisle.com ). The hotel is brand new, and will open in April, so we will be one of the first groups to stay at the hotel. The hotel is approximately 3 miles from the fairgrounds. In order to get the Team Shelby rate, you will need to call (717-706-3400) to make your reservation after April 18th. Rooms will be held until mid-May, after which availability may be limited. The Team Shelby rate is $159.00/night. You will need to make the hotel reservation on your own, as it is not included automatically as part of event registration.
You also need to make your own reservation for admission to the show field at the Carlisle Ford Nationals. (http://www.carlisleevents.com/carlisle-events/carlisle-ford-nationals/default.aspx) Make sure to indicate you are registering with Team Shelby (there is a ‘pull down’ on the registration form), and be sure to indicate if you are participating in the parade (this cannot be added at a later time). If you register prior to May 2nd, and select the “Gate and Go” package, Carlisle will mail you your entrance pass, then you can drive directly into the show field without having to stop at registration and stand in line, to pick up your credentials.
T-shirts will be available on-line from Morgan’s & Phillip’s Speed Shop (http://www.mpspeedshop.com/), in the near future. Buy one as soon as they become available so you can wear it during the weekend. Only a very limited supply will be on hand at the event, and they will surely sell out quickly, so purchasing them on-line is the way to go.
