Greetings all previous Boxstoberfest Attendees.

Boxstoberfest 2016 is coming up soon - September 9-11 in Fredericksburg.

Attendance is limited to 90 cars in the main drive group but we have plenty capacity in the scenic and rally groups (unless we get a 5th drive leader, then we can add 20 more attendees). The main drive group sells out fast...... Registration for Boxstoberfest 2016 will open on July 1, 2015 at 6:00 am, and will be through ClubRegistration.net. There is already lots of interest, so this is going to be another great year for the event. Last year we had record attendance with 235 attendees.

Your safety and enjoyment of the event are of prime importance to the organizers. Speaking of safety, the following needs to be completely understood by all participants - Boxstoberfest is not a race, nor a venue to drive as fast as you want and endanger other participants, your passengers, nor the public. We enjoy a spirited drive on public roads, and have a very good time doing so. If your intent is for an all out ride pressing the envelope of your vehicle, this is not the place. There are multiple events within all the regions to do this in a safe and controller manner. Rule 1 is NO PASSING. Break this rule, and you will forever be banned. Regardless, all who have attended in the past can attest that the twisties can still be challenging and VERY exciting.

As a summary, here are some of the details of the event.

1. As with last year we have 3 events for Friday early attendees - (1) A chance to run the regular driving route early. Arrive at the Hangar Hotel prior to 1:00 pm Friday Sept 9, check in and sign the waivers, and pick up the official drive map. Then, you are free to drive the entire course - which opens up your Saturday to run it again, or participate in one of the other drives. (2) We have the Gimmick Rally early run, which then allows you to run the scenic or main course on Saturday. The rally start time will be any time after 8:00 am, up till 12:00. You can start as soon as you show up and pick up the instructions. Obviously, you will need to be in Fredericksburg early Friday morning. For these 2 events just find me at the Hotel. (3) the wine tour, being such a hit last year, is on the schedule again. The tour bus(s) leave the Hangar Hotel at 1:00, and will return around 6:00. If there is any specific winery you would like to visit, please indicate such when you register.

2. Once again - Boxstoberfest central is the Hangar Hotel. In fact, we have the entire Hangar Hotel blocked for the whol Greetings all previous Boxstoberfest Attendees.

If there is any specific winery you would like to visit, please indicate such when you register.

2. Once again - Boxstoberfest central is the Hangar Hotel. In fact, we have the entire Hangar Hotel blocked for the whole weekend - all rooms, and conference facilities. For those who have attended previous Boxstoberfest events, this is the hotel at the Gillespie County Airport where we do the Saturday morning line-up and drive staging. The rooms at the Hangar Hotel are absolutely fabulous, and we have a great room rate. We also have special rates at the Fredericksburg Inn, as we have had in the past. *Note* Even though Boxstoberfest registration is just now opening, a lot of attendees last year booked their rooms as they checked out last year. As such, all the rooms are full and there is a wait list. There are plenty of rooms at the Fredericksburg Inn as well as other local hotels (there is a brand new Holiday Inn Express, with what I hear has a fantastic pool, the Hampton Inn, and lots of B&B's).

3. Our Saturday evening event will be at the Pacific Showroom, on the Hangar Hotel property. The Showroom is a fabulous venue, and we have a great dinner planned in this wonderful facility. The Bill Smallwood band will be playing for us again this year, and it looks to be a blast (thanks again Stallion Capital) . The doors open at 7:00 for cocktails, and the serving line opens at 7:30.

4. All registration and check-in will be done at the Hangar Hotel, as was done last year.

5. Again this year, there is a $35 per person registration fee in which each registrant will automatically receive a Boxstoberfest T-Shirt. We will have a limited quantity of additional shirts for purchase at the event, however there will be no Polo shirts offered. Thanks again to Xpel Protective Films for once again sponsoring the t-shirts.

6. There were 3 distinct driving events offered on Saturday - the long drive which is a follow the leader type event, the scenic drive which is a mapped event driven at your own pace and a clue based gimmick rally where you follow cryptic clues to end the tours closest to the actual mileage.

7. When registering, you have the option to "Opt In" to receive text messages. If you turn this option on, you will receive periodic messages prior to the event. During the event, your drive leaders and organizers have the ability to send up to date information immediately (but please let your co-drive read/reply to these - remember, Safety First).

All the details, and the link to the registration site are at www.boxstoberfest.com. You must register for the event to attend (you can’t just show up), and pay the registration fee and event options fees (dinner, lunch, additional shirts). Hotel registrations are done by booking directly with the hotels - the event registration site does not book your hotel room.

Lastly, our premier sponsor, Stallion Capital Management will be holding a private dinner for the fist 22 confirmed people. Additional details are available on the registration page.

If you have any questions, have door prizes or swag to offer, want to volunteer for anything - we need drive leaders, parking coordinators, and drive launch helpers, please feel free to send an email to shassere@gmail.com
