    In today's world violence can happen anywhere, we have seen it in churches, theaters and yes in the St Louis area. What we can't do is live our lives in fear, go enjoy the meet. I will, my insurance includes a c/c permit.

    Like any other big city with undesirable neighborhoods known for bad behaviour, if one really MUST go there for any reason, then travel only in a group, and not at night when most of these incidences that make the national news occur.

    Means nothing when people are rioting eight miles from the host hotel.
    My question was about security, and travel advisories.
    One of the interstates leading there is shut down by 'protesters' this very minute.
    One would hope some routing advisories would be forthcoming.
    Your Savannah comment is irrelevant, but probably true.
    I could care less about the demographics. Just the IM prep and participant safety.

    Maryland Heights has probably less crime than Savanah. St. Louis county has about 99 small municipalities and they all want control over their jurisdiction. The main funding is through things like tickets and court costs. The average citizen is as good as it gets, and there are many nice interracial municipalities without any problems what-so-ever!
    That being said we do have security in place for all the parking and vendor areas.

    Joe and I could handle that.

    Right, Charlie; the Eriksons are nice folks. It's good to have such young, dedicated vendors in The Studebaker Hobby. BP

    We have reservations at the secondary hotel, but, because of health complications, we will be unable to attend. If somebody needs a reservation, let me know in a couple of days, and you can have ours. I had been looking forward to the meet for a long time, but sometimes things just don't work out.

    We will be there Wednesday thru Saturday and don't have a Forum badge but my wife and me will be wearing our Michiana Chapter badges . So far looks like we will be bringing our Gold 63 Avanti R2 original paint car . The last National Meet it was at was in the early 70s in So Bend back then I was around 10 years old and a passenger . I don't post much but looking forward to connecting with Forum Members . Ed George

    Got my Forum badge in the glove compartment so I don't forget it. Detailed under the hood, polished the chrome, hubcaps, clay barred the car and applied a coat of wax. Cleaned the tires and whitewalls. Looks purdy now, let's see what it looks like after driving all the way to St Louis. Should be fine in the desert during the day. The AC is working good.
