    I have a place to stay near by. Do I need to buy tickets yet? I'm not a member of the Lotus Owners Club.

    The majority of people usually arrive on Friday in time to: unload the car, clean up (especially if they drive a Se7en), register, take a look at the cars, get a quick drink and attend the evening reception. Usually the reception has enough finger food to satisfy all but the most famished. The reception never really ends, the food just runs out and people migrate to the hotel's common areas to continue talking, drinking and looking at cars.

    The hard core LOGgers and some who want to do some tourist activities will arrive at the hotel sometime Wednesday or Thursday. The trick on these days is look for Lotus logos and say hello. Impromptu groups form for meals and sightseeing.

    Maybe: 1/4 leave Sunday evening, 1/3-1/2 Monday, either in the morning or after visiting the Glenn for a bit. The rest fade away Tuesday and beyond. If there is an opportunity to do some touring laps at the Glenn many more people will stay over Monday night and leave Tuesday.

    Reserve a hotel room now to insure you get a room at the LOG hotel! I expect it to fill up.

    Once the registration form is posted on either http://www.lotusowners.com/LOG33/ or http://www.lotuscarclub.org/ take advantage of the early-bird registration rate.

    The registration fee for non-members includes 1 year of membership. I suggest joining now in order to start getting the bi-monthly magazine, stay abreast of what is going on and get a feel for the club.

    Lotus Owners Gathering 33 (LOG 33)
    Watkins Glen/Corning NY
    August 1-4 2013


    In about 2 months, Lotus Owners from all over the USA, Canada as well as the rest of the world will be converging on Watkins Glen/Corning NY for the 33rd annual Lotus Owners Gathering.

    The LOG 33 committee is hoping you will join us for a Lotus filled weekend of Lotus cars and Lotus friends.

    For those of you are planning on attending, please remember that May 31st is the early bird deadline for registering for LOG 33. Your form and payment must be postmarked to Box L by May 31 to get the best discount for attending LOG.

    For those of you that are still on the fence so to speak, please join us. LOG is a great place to share Lotus memories with old Lotus friends and to make new Lotus memories with new Lotus friends.

    For the latest information on LOG 33 with updates on our many activities, please visit our website, as we are always striving to add and modify the content of the LOG weekend as new opportunities arise.
    Go to http://www.log33.com and http://www.lotusownersgathering.com and click on the "Last Minute News" page.

    The registration document can be downloaded by following this link.

    Some of the updates are as follows:

    Wine Tour

    The Wine Tour on Sunday was set up just to facilitate safe travel to the wineries so that no Lotus Owner was driving along the wine tour (obvious reasons) and the $45 charge just covers the transportation. There will be a $2 to $5 per person, per winery charge for those wishing to sample the wines, payable at the wineries. We have also added a stop for lunch at a cost of $20 per person, collected at the time of the lunch.

    Hotel

    The Radisson Hotel is booked full for Friday and Saturday. If you call the Radisson at 607-962-5000, mention Lotus Club or LOG 33 and they will put you on a waiting list. There are always changes but in the event the hotel stays booked full:

    Latest email:

    Lotus Owners Gathering 33 is just about 2 weeks away.

    We are not coordinating this message with any list of attendees, so you may be getting this either to entice you to come to LOG, or if you are coming to LOG 33 to let you know what we have planned once you get to the Finger Lakes region of New York State.

    On your way into LOG, please take advantage of one of our incoming visual rallies. You can download the rallies at www.log33.com. They start from basically the 4 points of the compass and it is a great way to see the wonderful back roads of New York State. And do not forget to bring you your models, photos, and artwork to enter in one of our LOG 33 contests.

    We are pleased to annouce that will have a real Lotus Elan 26R for the event as well as a Lotus Mk 10. Rare Lotus Cars and not often seen out of a museum or car collection.

    Schecter Guitars has donated a Lotus themed guitar, autographed by Mario Andretti, to be auctioned off at the Saturday night banquet. We will also be auctioning two Lotus 79 models, autographed by Mario Andretti, built by master modeler Jeff Morgan. Jeff has more then 250 hours into the building of the Lotus 79's and they are just a work of art.

    Dan Gurney has donated wonderful autographed prints from his All American Racing collection to also be auctioned off.

    One hundred percent of the auction proceeds will benefit the Grand Prix Mechanics Charitable Trust. The Trust was started by Sir Jackie Stewart to benefit the many people working in the pits, turning the wrenches of Formula 1 Racing. It is a wonderful cause and you can read more about the trust at http://www.gpmechanicstrust.com/.

    To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Lotus Ltd, forty bottles of Andretti Wine, autographed by Mario, will be given away as door prizes. Plus one of the Lotus 79 models will also go as a door prize. When you couple that more door prizes of photos and items donated by our wonderful group of LOG 33 supporters it just adds to the reasons to join us for a great Lotus weekend.

    We have had a change in our guest speaker. Our announced guest and speaker, Matt Becker, head of Test and Development at Lotus Cars has been called away by pressing Lotus business overseas.

    Gavan Gershaw, Technical Chief of Lotus Racing will be our guest for the LOG 33 weekend. Starting out in go karts and racing them till the age of 18, he has since raced many different types of vehicles. Gavan's involvement in the higher levels of LeMans type racing have led him to build a working relationship with many highly regarded racing engineers and racing teams. We welcome Gavan to LOG 33 and we hope you will show him your car and spend a little time getting some driving tips from one heck of a Lotus driver.

    And there is more. Bob Dance, chief mechanic for Team Lotus from the 60's to the 80's. will be our guest for the weekend. Bob was chief mechanic for Jimmy Clark, Graham Hill, Jochen Rindt, Emerson Fitipaldi, Ronnie Peterson, Mario Andretti , Aryton Senna, and Mika Hakkinen. Bob is just a treasure trove of wonderful stories about those heady racing days of Colin Chapman and Team Lotus.

    Steve Allen, accountant for Team Lotus and now for Classic Team Lotus is our guest, as is John Ambler. John was with Team Lotus from the Type 72 Formula 1 car to the start of the T92 Formula 1 car. John was part of the team that designed and built the championship winning Lotus 79, the twin chassis cars and member of the team responsible for the development and testing of the first F1 Team designed composite chassis.

    There is a lot going on at LOG 33 and promises to be a really fun time. If you are coming to LOG 33, look us up when you get there. If you are not coming, give it a second thought. It is not too late to join us but register soon as August 2nd, 3rd and 4th is just around the corner.

    For more information about LOG 33 please go to http://www.log33.com.
