Like everyone else, I had a blast. Great to meet everyone, have fun picking at Allen, Cody,Steve, Charley and others. I am still not sure I understand how Paul ended up winning the brake system :hmm: and I drew the ticket :lmao: . Oh well, He was already at the mic to explain the next prize....
Thanks again to all that helped make it a success. Larry and Susan did so much behind the scenes and it went so smooth because of their hard work. The sponsors really stepping up and we had several thousand dollars worth of prizes given away. I hope more plan on attending next year and we have to rent the Hilton to have enough room....
Thanks again everyone.

I heard the event was exceptional. Michael from American Autowire wanted me to pass along his appreciation to Larry for the event and anyone else who helped plan such a great night.

I'm looking forward to hearing all about it when he returns from Las Vegas. (or should I say...IF he returns from Las Vegas)

Michael won't be able to tell you much about it. Remember: "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas".

I didn't go to the dinner, but saw many awesome display of cars at SEMA. I'll be sure to make the next year Pro-touring dinner. Hopefully next year, the dinner will be held at a larger facility so many more people can come. I did get to meet Pascual Marquez and his crew at the Marquez booth. Great guy and awesome products!

Larry was SO NERVOUS prior to the dinner! He just about had the "cold sweats"! Not sure why though, as the dinner was FANTASTIC, and everything went really really well. You can definitely count on our support for all future PT.com dinners! :usa:



I am still not sure I understand how Paul ended up winning the brake system and I drew the ticket . Oh well, He was already at the mic to explain the next prize....

Ya know!? I really do have to honestly say that I'm one of those guys that has NEVER ever won a damn thing before in my entire life - REALLY! and just totally and completely lost it when I did the unbelieveable double take while realizing that YES! Oh my dear good Lord!!! I didn't just finally win something, I won the latest greatest cutting edge Baer Extreme Plus System!!!!!!!!!! Holy freakin catfish! Now I need to *try* to find some large x huge wheels that will fit these absolute monsters! Heck, I just about feel like I need to go find an appropriate car to go with them! I was definitely like a deer caught in the head lights over this, and was in no way what so ever ready to grab the mike and reciprocate by announcing the winner of the show prepped assist system that I personally built for this year's dinner! It all became a blur at that moment, and I think you guys may have seen it as I was standing at the podium - all of my usual polish and composure GONE, just "cheesin" and tripping all over myself with my words. So much so, that I completely forgot to go see Susan afterwards and do the "photo opp" hand shake with the winner of our system and... :hand:

All of this notwithstanding, THE absolute best part of this entire event was meeting some of the best damn people ever found all together in one room at any time / any place - you guys are ALL just amazing! Yes, even our infamous little leg humper was great to meet (kind of like our very own little Adam Sandler), along with all of the other PT.com supporting vendors et al... :cheers:

We had a great time. That bartender was puring triple Jack Daniels every time. So by the time I got into Tom Razzano (from Manley's) car, Andrew Borodin had to finish all of my sentences. :lmao:

That was indeed a very nice dinner. I sure am glad that I was able to make it afterall. Thanks again to all the sponsors for stepping up with some absolutely AWESOME give-a-ways!

Steevo, you know you can always count on me to finish your sentences. Any time Brother!

Larry,

Cynthia and I had a great time! Winning the Hydratech brake system did not hurt either!

Yea, whats up with that??

The only thing that I hate about these dinners is that you start gabbing with some people and then you miss gabbing with other people. Next year I think I am going to go from table to table making sure I get to at at least say hi to everyone.

Hope to catch you at another event... hey, you arn't that far :)

I want to say I had a great time and was impressed with all of the stuff we got to take home. To all of you who I got to talk to I have to tell you I really enjoyed the time spent together getting to share what is going on .

I actually got meet Mark Stielow for a moment and know that he really does exist other than in magazines.

I can hardly wait until next year and the possiblity that twice as many people will be there. It will have to be a lot longer party to be able to meet everyone then. It seemed all to short of a time before everyone was gone.

I had a great time too. Even though I didn't win anything. And even though I had to sit at the same table as Yody. At least the food was good. Can't wait till next year, if I'm lucky enough to make it again.

Larry Callahan
11-08-2005, 12:03 PM
I'm glad everyone had a good time and I'm surprised how soon a lot of people bailed. We had no time limit on the room. Perhaps we should try and come up with more to do next year? Maybe pin the tail on?????

Anyone see Brian Zales pictures on our home page? There are 5 of them.

Watch for more soon.

As much as I hate to ask, did anyone get a picture of this years desert? I really didn't get to see it. I said nothing brown for desert and it was brown! What's up with that!

Here is a picture of last years desert for those who missed out.

Steve Chryssos

I think it was more of a beige color this year. Regardless, I steered clear of it. You can see it in the "ATS caption" pic.

Heh Heh it was brown with raisins. :) Actually it tasted ok. Not having been there last year I missed out on all of that or I might have stayed away from the dessert table.
