I have been remiss in my duties to inform this community of upcoming events, And I apologize.

Our XLR club has been working on getting together for several events this year and most plans have finally been completed.

24 Aug 2013: Carmel Artomobilia (http://www.carmelartomobilia.com/guide/)

Located in the quaint town of Carmel, about 20 miles North of Indianapolis, Artomobilia is a celebration of the automobile as art. All of the towns main streets will be closed and cars of every vintage and class will be on display.

XLRs are not in the judging classes, but we have had the largest car corral of the event for the last two years. And this year is proving to be no different. XLRs will be coming in from five states that we know of. This is considered a local event for our club since we launch most of our events/activities from Indy.

If you'd like to join us, registration closes 1 Aug. You can register for the car corral here http://www.carmelartomobilia.com/corral-registration/. Our club will have two or three canopies, plenty of cold drinks and snacks. And fun will be had by all.

26-29 Sep 2013: XLR Bowling Green Homecoming

In celebration of the tenth anniversary of the first production XLR, we are having a National gathering of XLRs in Bowling Green hosted in part by our friends at the Bowling Green Corvette Club (BGCC) and the Corvette National Museum. Thursday will be a meet and greet dinner. Friday will be a tour of the Corvette museum. And Saturday will be a car show with awards hosted by BGCC. XLR owners from all over the country and Canada will be in attendance. This will be the biggest gathering of XLRs this year. Our last National event in BG had 42 XLRs in attendance and we'd love to exceed that number.
