The 2014 Annual Meet plans are in the works. Save the date so you can attend this fantastic show. Our host hotel is located just North of Indianapolis in Carmel, IN. We have a block of rooms at the Renaissance Indianapolis North hotel, 11925 N. Meridian St, Carmel, IN, We also have a special rate of $109 + taxes for our group. This is an upscale area and very secure. In addition, we will have our own security service during the Friday and Saturday overnight hours. To make reservations, call 317-816-0777. We have a limited numbher of rooms in our block, so make your reservations early to insure you will be staying with our group.

The Renaissance is providing us with a special parking area for our cars that will make it easier for us to provide overnight security. The security company will be providing a uniformed and armed security gard Thursday through Saturday night.

Friday night - Fastimes Last Lap indoor Kart Track. These carts go as fast as 40mph on a multi-level track. If you are planning to participate in the go karts these rules must be adhered to: 1. A valid drivers license; 2. Closed shoes (no sandals); 3. Helmet with face mask - available to rent at the facility. Also on site they have a Putt-Putt golf course, video arcade, laser tag, bowling and food. They are providing us with a special area to park our H/O's while we enjoy all of the activities. You can just hang out in the parling lot and enjoy all of the cars and friends if you prefer.

Saturday evening banquet guest speaker will be Donald Davidson. Mr Davidson is the historian of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the only person to hold such a position on a full-time basis for any motorsports facility in the world. Donald started his career as a statistician and historian at USAC, and is perhaps best known for his radio program, The Talk of Gasoline Alley, broadcast annually throughout the "Month of May" on WFNI in Indianapolis. He is very interesting to listen to and will answer any questions, so if there is anything you want to kn ow about Indy, be sure to ask.

We have received word that Doc Watson will also be in attendance. We do not know what Doc's full itinerary will be yet but Doc is always a gracious guest, a wealth of information and truly a great man to talk all things Hurst with!
