Anybody else from Las Vegas here on the forum? I was curious to see if there is a SDC chapter here in town.

Andy,

How about Henderson? The Tumbleweeds Chapter, according to the SDC Home Page Local Chapter Roster, meets every 3rd Weds of the month at 7.30pm at the Skyline Restaurant and Casino 1741 N. Boulder, in Henderson, NV. This is the link to the chapter info, just scroll down, as it is the 2nd listing for the Silver State! :cool:

I never even thought about the chapter in Henderson, but since I will be in Henderson on the 22nd with the Avanti body on my trailer and might need some help when we try to transfer it to David Barrett's trailer for the trip back to Texas, maybe we can have a little get together at this time? I will have my roster with me just in case we need help but any one wanting to see the Avanti body and feel how heavy it is will be welcome, also here is my cell number 510-266-2522.....Bob

SDC held their International Convention in Las Vegas, NV a few years back. I would like to see another one there.

The last SDC International in Las Vegas was in the Summer. I do not think that it was bad and I even judged the entire C/K Division on the roof of the parking deck. To me, the worst SDC International for weather (temp./humidity/wind) was in St. Louis.

Probably not a good idea to make it May or September, with trying to be a family oriented event. The summer months, are just plain hot, though a dry hot.....the average temperatures (I think are low) are 100 to 106, like Glendale's in 2010...the only real bad thing about Las Vegas in the Summer.....is if they get a "frog choker" of a monsoon which can flood the town, in a matter of minutes :cool: Reno is a better choice, for the summer months!

I would like either one. It mostly comes down to having a local SDC Chapter that can handle it and is willing to do it.
