There was an article on the web a few months back showing a new Ford Mustang painted in colors from one of the fighter squadrons from the 8th Air Force. It was photographed next to a P-51 painted for the same squadron. I don't remember the squadron number, but they had yellow noses.

Not sure which squadron that was, the 357th had the red and yellow checkerboard pattern on the nose. Are you an 8th AF buff?

Response from the St. Charles Town Center

Kristine,

Thanks for your response. This is the area that I am looking at for the meet:





I can meet with you sometime on Thursday to discuss the space. However, since this meet is just a first time get together for some Camaro folks to get to know each other I concerned as to the cost to use any space. If it is reasonable I can either foot the bill myself or ask for donations although please keep in mind that anyone who attends the meet most likely will head into the mall food court to shop at some of your vendors.

Regards,
Dave

I would need to see the space you are speaking of. If it is Macy's track, we would not be able to hold the meet there. We do have other spaces on property than can be used. We do charge for the use of the space at the mall. I would be happy to meet with you at the mall to discuss this further. I could meet with you on Wednesday or Thursday this week.

Eff that Dave! Why the hell should we pay to park at a public mall? Don't you foot the bill for that either - that's just plain crazy. I don't know who else agrees/disagrees, but I think it's ludicrous (sp?) to pay. It's just a meet and greet - not like we are having a car show or something like that. Tell her to get lost. JMO

I have a lot of respect for those guys, especially in the early parts of the war when the loses were so high. One of my uncles was a mechanic in the 8th and volunteered to be a rear gunner on B-17s. He was feeling out done by his older brother who was in the First Special Service Forces, also known as the Devil's Brigade, a combined U.S. and Canadian unit recognized as one of the forerunners of the Green Berets. Luckily he started flying toward the end of the war and made it home. My father island hopped with MacArthur then ended up in the Air Force after the war. I was raised an Air Force brat.

that's a crock. We had a meet and greet about 3/4 of the way down from top level Kohls in August of last year. Had about 15 cars if I remember right and didn't pay anyone.

All, I get this worked out. I am curious as to how they want to handle this and will advise asap. Regarding starting another thread, I would prefer to just keep updating this one as necessary.

Didn't receive a response today so I'll be making a trip over there on Thursday for a face to face with the mall folks. If they get stupid I'll find somewhere else because I want this meet to happen!

Stay tuned!

Need help!

Went over to the mall this afternoon to shoot some pics of the area that I am looking to use for the meet. 10 seconds after I parked and got out with my camera Grandpa Rental Cop drove over and told me since it was PRIVATE PROPERTY I could NOT take any pictures without authorization...

With that being said, I waited until he left and shot a few from the car....






I then went across the street to Applebee's to check out their back lot:







I have a name and number for Applebee's and will call Friday evening. However, since they hold NFL Football packages each Sunday and especially since the Skins are out of town on the 24th I imagine that they will be packed.

I drove thru the Hooters parking lot and no way do they have enuf room for even 15 cars given again it is a football Sunday.

I have one more idea and will pursue tomorrow. If anyone who plans to attend has any ideas as to a location please feel free to post. I am thinking based on the responses that we will have 15-20 cars so room is especially critical.

Regarding the mall, I don't just want to show up and start parking in any of the lots just to be hassled about it and having to leave.

I'll post again tomorrow evening after the call to Applebee's and the result of my other idea....

Take care,
Dave aka 40again

How about Boston's on Smallwood? They have three lots and I never see more than one filled.

Or, what about the park and ride lot @ smallwood & Crain Highway? Bet it's empty on a Saturday.

I think I found the place!

My wife and I had lunch today at Damon's restaurant which is associated with the Clarion Hotel on St. Patricks Drive right off of Crain Highway.

I checked with a Manager at the hotel and received authorization to use part of the parking lot although I "promised" her that some of us would most likely visit Damon's since it is a football sunday. Whether or not that happens is not a concern to me at this point.

I think that it is the perfect spot since food, drink and bathrooms are just a short walk across the parking lot. I'll take a drive by there this Sunday afternoon to see if the area that I am looking at will have any cars in it since the skins are away this weekend.

In looking at the pictures the area that I am considering is the long line of spaces on the back side of the parking lot along the grass

Thanks for the ideas! The park and ride lot maybe a solution if all else fails. Boston's I imagine is like all of the other ones and will allow as long as they get some business out of it.

I was just curious what those of us who will be attending thought about Damon's. Since I hadn't heard anything I thought I'd throw that out there.....

BTW I like the popcorn responses......
