    Is there an information pack available to assist me with making arrangements for shipping my car from CA. and hotels that the club recommends? I just found out about your event while at the NSRA nationals in Louisville. I would be driving from CT to CA.

    Any idea of when registration packets will be out?

    For anyone staying on the Kona side there is a condo complex called Hale Kona Kai. It is more reasonably priced than the hotels and you are not charged for parking. The contacts name is Adeline and if you tell her I sent you she will not hang up on you. Aloha and see you in June!

    I’m planning on making this cruise, and want to know if there is a master list of host hotels I can use? Or a booking service your club uses to make all the hotel arrangements. I need to get started on this and get more info on car shipping. Thanx, Gary

    We are coming from the mainland to live permanently in South Kona , I’m shipping my 1932 Ford Roadster over for the show too.
