40th Annual Austin Bantam Society Trophy Meet

Boulder City, NV.  2008

Note:" there are 3 plus page to this meet, please see "page" at bottom for the next page.

I'm sure I have said this before but if you missed this meet you missed a good one.  Mark and Kathy Richey did a spectacular job on organizing and making sure there was something to do.  Boulder City is a wonderful town to spend time in. 

The hotel was 3-4 minutes from the restaurant shown above and there were dozens of restaurants and interesting places to see within minutes of this one.  I didn't have a bad meal the 4 days I was there, I'm going to miss it.

Thursday morning there was a swap meet scheduled, I set up in back of the hotel parking lot and somehow missed the message it was in front of the parking lot. 

So if you didn't see some of things I had brought you're just out of luck.  The photos below of the cars are taken after the swap meet.

A real treat for historians and Jeep lovers

While most were watching vintage Bantam Jeep movies in the hotel conference room Jan and I decided to take a run down the road to see Hoover Dam in the Austin. 

It's about a 9 mile drive and drops about 1,100 feet.  If you have never seen this engineering wonder it's worth flying out to see it. 

They are building a freeway bypass that is a technical wonder by itself.  We had about a 35 mph head wind on the way back.  Click on the photo below to see all the photos.
