Somehow I just don't have a good felling about the change of owners. Middle of January and nothing happening.

I wrote to them about 2 months ago  and also posted on this forum asking for info on being a volunteer and got no reply back.  Guess they don't need any help so I decided to make plans elsewhere.  :?

I too am not very impressed with the way they are running things.  Sounds like they are so worried in making sure that everything is perfect on the admin side that they are forgetting that they are going to need actual cars and bikes to participate and volunteer for the show to happen.

And I guess we still don't see an active link for 2018 ECTA membership??? :? I'd think they'd like to see some $$ coming in. This is becoming a little bit worry some. :roll: I have rooms at the Holiday Inn and am beginning to feel like that old tome on being all dressed up with no place to go...

I decided not to make any reservations or plans when they would not answer my e-mails.   Not sure why they refuse to communicate with folks but it sure is not a good way to start IMO.

Y'all want to let them get organized a little before you continue the bitch fest...  :x
If you think you can do it better, start an organization and make all the arraignments to make a race go smoothly....
Have at it  :cheers:

The ECTA website page is authored by Brian Lohnes. Anybody acquainted with him? I tried posting a comment there addressed to Brian, suggesting he post more often here (but I don't know if the comment actually "took"... I got no acknowledgement). I didn't see any email address for Brian.
