Coverage of Convention 2010

Convention 2010 is now just a memory, but a very good memory as most of our guests told us it was a major success for them.
Everything flowed well despite a few hiccups (like the stage that was left in the middle of the car show venue from the previous nights concert, took 1.5 hours to dismantle)
but seamless management mean’t that few actually knew about it.
We had 147 cars registered but had way over that number (180 Mustangs) at the car show. The weather was just the best, warm & sunny every day
