Update July 20, 2013:

 I sent this out via email last night and wanted to update our GN info here on the website with this info.

Hello All!  
With just a little over a week before the Boston Grand National, I wanted to send a reminder to those going to GN.   I will probably send one more final reminder next weekend.  
 
Chapter Members Attending:
We have a list at www.2013GN.6364cadillac.com. I have been gathering names, days, etc of those attending and adding to our growing list .  If you are going and your name is not on the list, or something needs to be added or corrected send me an email.

Not Attending this Year?
Plan to attend next year in Lake George, New York, July 8 – 12, 2014.   As a Cadillac enthusiast and Club Member, attending a Grand National is a very rewarding experience.  I am completely hooked and plan to attend as many as possible going forward!

Chapter Meeting at Grand National Saturday, Aug 3, 4pm to 5pm: 
We have a chapter meet-up at the Host Hotel after the car show and before the banquet.  This is a great time to meet your fellow chapter member, plus I plan to do a group picture for upcoming Newsletter. I look forward to our first formal chapter meet-up and hope this will be  recurring event at the Grand Nationals.  Make sure you let me know if you will be attending.

My Contact Info: 
Mine and my wife Cheryl's phone #'s were sent via email to CLC members last night. We have unlimited data and text so feel free to text.  I will also have the laptop with me and will be checking email on the iphone and laptop.  My email address is jasonedge@nc.rr.com.   I will post our room # once we check in so feel free to drop by and say hello. As noted in the list at bottom we will be at the host hotel from July 27 to Aug 5.   Keep in mind that I have not met many of you in person so be sure and introduce yourself and let me know you are a chapter member!

Reception and Banquet:
The Reception tends to be a “move around and mingle” affair, but the banquet is a seated event, and welcome all of our chapter members to join me and Cheryl at the banquet.  I know that many of you are also members of regions and may be joining your local region at the banquet and fully understand.

Newsletter and Upcoming Self Starter:
The next newsletter will probably be a July & August Newsletter with the spotlight on th Grand National. 

August Self Starter Spotlights the 1963 Cadillac:
Watch for the August Self Starter which will mark the 50th anniversary of the 1963 Cadillac, and will be the biggest Self Starter ever, most of which covers the 1963 Cadillac!   Many of our member cars will be featured.

Chapter Membership:
Our Chapter is free to all Cadillac LaSalle Members, and encourage all of our CLC members that have not joined, to send me a request with your name, CLC #, address and list of 1963 and 1964 Cadillacs so I can sign you up. It is a great time to be a part of our progressive, proactive, informative and fun chapter!  
  
Chapter Shirts Available:
We have been out of the M, L and XL chapter shirts for a while but have just put in an order so I will have a good selection to take with us to the Grand National in Boston.  These are top quality "Gildan Ultra Cotton" pre shrunk shirts. The color is ash grey which will go great with just about anything color pants or jacket, especially a dark jacket or dark pants.

Just added a link to CLC Judges manual and added Cliff Graubard as another Chapter Member joining us in Boston, He will have an outside Vendor Space and will have tons of parts for sale!

Comment by Jason Edge on July 25, 2013 at 10:30am

I've been in rapid fire pack mode when not at work with my day job, and will be heading out at midnight tomorrow (Friday Night). I have one transmission drop off near Elkton, Maryland (shooting for 5:30am) and hope to hit Boston sometime around noon or shortly there after!  I will go ahead and set up our Sunday Chat Event and hope I can log in from Boston Sunday and join everyone.  For those heading to Boston, have a safe trip.  For those that can't make this year's Grand National I hope to see you in Lake George, New York next year!

Comment by Jason Edge on July 26, 2013 at 10:35pm

I've been going wide open since 4:45am today and about the head out for the 12 hour drive to Boston around Midnight!  The escalade is packed to the gills with parts, luggage and parts. I'll see those going to Boston for the Grand National in the coming days!

Comment by Bahama Sand on July 27, 2013 at 3:37am

Happy GN Jason, and to everyone else who is going.

Comment by Jason Edge on July 27, 2013 at 6:28pm
Checked in around 3 pm. On 8th floor facing Boston. Had delays in Va due to road construction in middle of the night. We saw some cool caddies checking in. Place is as nice as the picture. At bar having refreshments with Cheryl.

Chris Milici, Chairman, 2013 CLC Grand National,  is setting up now and just walked down the Elvis Wines we are donating and put out some flyers for the 63/64 Chapter.  By the way we will have a raffle as part of our 1963/64 Chapter Meetup thanks to my wife Cheryl.

Comment by Jason Edge on August 2, 2013 at 12:49am

I just wanted to check in and say we are having an absolute blast here at the Grand National. Cheryl and I did the Historic Boston Tour Yesterday, and she took the Salem Witch tour today (well yesterday as it is after midnight right now!).  I'm an absolute camera freak and it is hard to not run out and just go crazy taking pictures of every old LaSalle and Cadillac here, ....but know I will end up repeating my self and will wait until Saturday to go through and get some decent pictures of many of the cars.

I will say that all CLC members should attend a Grand National.  Once you have been to one, you will usually be hooked like I am.  I like to say that there are 3 Major Components of being a CLC Member:
1) Just being a member of a premier Car Club and getting the Excellent Self Starter and many other benefits
2) Joining your local regions and chapters and meeting up to share your Cadillac and Cadillac Experience
3) Taking part in a Grand National or European National or other National event and meeting up with people that share your passion from all around the globe.

Comment by Jason Edge on August 2, 2013 at 1:30am

The Historic Boston Tour has definitely been a highlight of the 2013 CLC Grand National So Far.

I have added links to all video I have posted from the 2013 GN up top on the main header for safe keeping. We will leave the 2013 GN Link up in the header section of the website for a while then switch out as we start planning for the 2014 GN in Lake George, New York!
