Wow... sounds great!! It would be wonderful to have the USA Audi-Fest
(sorry, but I felt that perhaps we should rename the event from USA Q-meet,
for the Q-challenged, like myself...) include some international friends.
And perhaps if AoA learns that you are travelling from abroad and bringing
over some great cars, they will help sponsor a part of the event.

I live on the East coast, and would love to join you guys on the pilgrimage
out west. I think that once the holidays are over, we can start some serious
planning on the event (at least I know I can... right now, it is close to
impossible to even think twice about it...).

So, for now, everyone... please enjoy the Holidays, but come prepared after
such to help plan USA Audi-Fest '97!! We'll definitely need a lot of
assistance to pull this thing off.

Happy Holidays.
