After Chris left the company in 2020, there has not been much promotion and activities like he would put together. That was him for over 15 years. His moving on left a significant void, Tom Oates hasn't done anything to the best of my knowledge. The engagement level has fallen off a cliff.

That said, I believe he's putting something together still :beer

Ditto on the Chris supporting our hobby and how it’s now gone “off the cliff” with his departure.
Dunno the answer.

O.k., that's a shame. In 2017 it was a nice event for the 30th Anniv. I don't hear from the NCM any longer since there is new management. They used to keep me posted on where the 03 Callaway Z06 test & dev. car was being used for events etc. It's been 7 years since we donated the car to them. I am still planning on going out to the Bash in April. Happy New Year to all! :beer

Yep, the Display Committee has been planning this with myself and another over the past year. The display is planned for later this year. Invites will be sent in the coming months. It'll be nice to see the Callaway's on display again, but it won't be during the NCM Bash in April/May 22 :hi
