2012 Gortz House

The Gortz Haus in Grimes is celebrating their 10 anniversary, and they asked us to have a car show on their lawn.  There’s food and drinks available, plus for anyone that wants to stick around, or come back at 6:00 PM there’s live entertainment inside with beer, wine and appetizers available.  It should be a lot of fun!  It’s shady in case it’s hot outside, and if it’s chilly, the restaurant inside will be a good place to warm up with a cup of coffee.

Some of you did this 5 years ago for their 5th anniversary and reportedly had a good time.  It’s not a real formal show, just a relaxing Saturday on their lawn with friends.  They would like some idea of how many cars to expect.  If you can please let me know if you plan to attend, I can provide an estimate, so we can figure out how much area we’ll need.  If anyone wants to alert any of the media for some club publicity, it would be great.

I’ve attached the poster my daughter Jen made for the event.  It’s a lower resolution PDF to keep the file size small.  If anyone wants to have me send a higher resolution JPEG, or the Adobe Illustrator file to print out in a larger size, let me know.  Since the address isn’t on the poster, here it is below:

I attached a map as well:
