Gentlemen,

It's been a lot of fun over the last 14 years so let's do it again!! Ford GT owners along with their wives/girlfriends (or both) flying in for Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale next month are invited to join us for this 15th Annual gathering of the faithful at 7:00pm on Thursday January 16 for cocktails, sparkling conversation, and dinner.

I have reserved the beautiful Wine Room at the Capitol Grille in Scottsdale for this years dinner/cocktail party. Drinks will be served from 7 to 8pm with dinner at 8:00. As in all past events, the tab for dinner and drinks will be tallied along with tax and a 20% gratuity and divided by the number of attendees. The tab will be paid in cash so hit an ATM early in the day and show up with a pocket full of $20 dollar bills. Anticipate approximately $95 per person for dinner/cocktails/tax.

If you're going to be here for auction week you don't want to miss this. Trust me. Be there or be square.

As always, secure guarded parking will be provided for members bringing a GT but bringing your GT is not required. Post up in this thread if you'll be joining us with the # in your party and if you'll be bringing a GT.

Hi Chip,

I'm looking forward to coming down to Scottsdale for a good solid week but it's not going to be until 2023 at the earliest. My son is 15 and we can't pull him out of school during the 2020 auction in January. We're planning for 2 to 3 years down the road when he can stay by himself.

Please save me a spot for me and my wife in 2023 when we can leave him at home and we can come join the fun :D

If you're going to Barrett Jackson Scottsdale.....

Please join us on Thursday night!! Get away from the noise and crowd for a couple hours, skip another BBQ sandwich on the midway, and have a nice dinner with your GT friends. If you have any questions send me a text at (602) 430-4877 and I'll call you right back. See you in a couple weeks!

FYI - while the pictures show this restaurant to be quite posh looking, there is no requirement to dress up, so if you're wondering what to pack, you don't have to pack anything special for this dinner. If shorts and a t-shirt are your thing (Barry), it'll be OK.

25 and counting.....

Gentlemen,

I’m predicting 45 members and guests on the 16th. Tune up with fellow Forum members before you buy that Verde Mantis Green NFGT on Saturday night. I’ll predict 1.1M on that sale as well. Cheers.
