I haven't put any LOG33 shots on Flickr but I have an album on my web site, here. Nothing much as I was busy taking the photos of every single car there (along with Dave Nagler and one or two other people) then assembling the big PowerPoint used at during the banquet for the awards.

I did already comment on the Flickr pic of my Elan at the autocross (with the horrendous sloppy numbers on the side) so I must have found those pics a while ago. Next time it makes it to a LOG, the Elan will be running much better and on fresh R-compound tires, not 20-year-old tires that kept me perpetually oversteering at the autocross!

Those are some of the best shots taken of Dad's LoCort
Always fun to take it to a solo2 and let her roar
Ran her in a few Canadian Ontario regional championship events. She is in the lowest stock class
Sounds great
We are disappointed about no solo2
Didn't know about those police rules

I have some nights booked already, but it's looking like we won't make it. If anyone needs rooms booked the 4th-7th, PM and we'll work out a swap so no non-LOGers get it

We have exclusivity with the hotel, so there will be no non LOGers there. You can just cancel and someone else will pick up the room.

LOG36 - SOONER THAN YOU THINK!
August 5th - 7th, 2016



Hello all Lotus owners and enthusiasts,

Are you counting the days until LOG36? We are! The LOG36 committee has a great weekend planned for all the registered participants who will be coming. As a matter of fact, close to 200 LOGers will be checking into our host hotel, The Marriott Princeton Forrestal on Thursday, a full day before LOG36 actually starts! There are still a few (and we mean only a few) rooms available for Friday and Saturday night. Don't delay your booking.

The second deadline date for Lotus Ltd registration is June 17th to receive the $125 registration fee. After that it goes to $175. Your postmark date is the deciding factor on how much you pay for registration. Remember, you must book your hotel room and register with Lotus Ltd separately.

Speaking of postmark date, the earlier you register the better your seating is for the Saturday night banquet and the early arrival for Grounds for Sculpture on Sunday morning (no moaning that you didn't get the banquet room seating you wanted or couldn't arrive early for Sunday mornings event).
We have so many special things planned it will be hard to keep up with everything going on.

A couple of insights:
  • We will have "special editions" of Riverhorse Beer at LOG36 that features Lotus historic events on the labels. You will want to collect all three types and as well as enjoy this local crafted beer which is only available at the bars during LOG36.
  • A very special book is being published by Coterie Press just in time for LOG36. "Dahlstrom: Lotus The Adverts". It will be signed by its creators and the artist at LOG36. We are sure you will want to purchase several copies of this very limited signed book.
  • There will be a swap meet during the Friday night reception. If you have Lotus parts, collectables, clothing, etc. we will provide a table for you to display and sell your items. Contact Foster Cooperstein to register in advance at [email protected]
  • Volunteers, we still need a few more. The special goodies you will receive as a volunteer will be sought after by everyone else at LOG. Become a LOG Guru! Contact Lee Klauber at [email protected]


Keep checking the LOG36 website for weekly updates. We can't wait to see you!

The LOG36 Committee once again spent another full Saturday to review all the planning details for LOG36. Did we mention we have so many cool things that are unique to a LOG that you don't want to miss any of it? We have almost 200 people arriving on Thursday......they are arriving a full day early and know something special is going on ;-)

You will note in the photo below that Lou is presenting the fine details of the android and iPod apps that have everything you could ever want to know about LOG36 on them. The release will be right before LOG36, you wont be able to live without the apps!

VOLUNTEERS! We have more than half of the number registered volunteers we need! What are you waiting for? Don't be left out of the highly sought after volunteer crew. Once we have the number of people needed we will be closing out the registered volunteers. They are the only ones who get the very special and limited edition LOG Guru shirts, not to mention special goodie bags filled with swag and the ultra cool volunteer lounge. You can volunteer in 2 hour increments. Don't be left out, contact Lee Klauber . He can get you in ;-)

Did we mention the very limited edition LOG36 River Horse beer that will be available only at LOG36? Wait until you see the specially designed Lotus labels for three different types of beer. We can't wait for you to taste them, collect them and maybe even bring some home. Limited supply, only at LOG36!

Friday and Saturday night at the host hotel, The Marriott Princeton Forrestal is almost sold out. Don't delay for the Lotus event of the year!

Getting the most out of LOG 36

Getting the most out of LOG 36



Early Arrivals

There are many people who are arriving early to LOG36 and for good reason. There are innumerable things to see and do around the Princeton area. Even though LOG registration is not available until Friday AM, there will be plenty of Lotus folk around to socialize with and the LOG committee will be on hand to greet everyone. Scenic and destination drives have been planned out for you to do on your own. Directions are available on the LOG 36 APP and in written form available at the front desk, LOG 36 Help desk, and at Registration, as well as being available to print off the LOG 36 web site.

LOG 36 App

There is a Lotus Owners Gathering 36 Companion App available for download on iPhone and Android devices. The App provides schedule, local destinations, and additional event information for LOG. Download the iOS version from the Apple App Store or get the Android version from Google Play.

Volunteers


LOG Volunteers will be easy to identify by their Yellow LOG 36 Gurus shirts. If you need assistance seek out one of the volunteers and if they are unable to help you they will direct you to someone who can. If you wish to volunteer and have not yet done so please seek out Lee Klauber, the LOG 36 Committee Volunteer Chairman – [email protected].

Registration

LOG 36 Registration will open at 11 AM on Friday. Please go to registration as soon as possible after arrival. We are expecting a large number of participants and the sooner you register the better off you and the event will be.

Lotus History Slide Show

There is a Lotus History Slide Show that is viewable on the public monitors throughout the hotel. The slideshow features Lotus By the Numbers, Lotus Grand Prix Winners, Lotus Concept Cars and One-Offs, Lotus Special and Limited Editions, Coach Builders and Tuners, Lotus Engines, Has Some Lotus DNA, and Lotus by License. Learn and Enjoy!

Parking

The main parking lot will be reserved for Lotus vehicles (and tributes and the Lotus DNA class vehicles). Tow-vehicles and trailers and non-Lotus should park in the side and back lots to the East side of the hotel (Left side if you are looking at the front of the hotel)

The Lotus parking area will have individual parking signs for participants. Park in the spot you select, then fill out the placard with the relevant information, and that spot will be yours for the rest of the event! Please do not park in a space that has already been reserved!

Car Wash

A Car wash will be available in the East Parking area throughout the weekend. Wash supplies are provided, but you may use your own as well. Once you are finished washing please take note of others around you. If there is a line to get to the hoses, move your car once washed to finish your detailing process.

Contests

There is a contest room where the Model, Photograph, Craft and Vanity Plate Contests will be on display. Please visit it and vote for your favorites.

New for LOG 36 is a vanity plate photo contest. Take a picture of your Lotus vanity plate – a close up of the plate, then a rear of the car image. Arrange them on a standard 8.5x11 sheet with your name, and explanation if needed of the meaning and your LOG Registration Number. Fun!

LOG 36 Cornhole

We have designed LOG 36 Cornhole game and it will be available to play in various places throughout LOG36. Cornhole is a fun way to pass your time and socialize with other LOGers. The Board will be one of the auction items you can bid on at the Saturday night banquet. Take a piece of LOG 36 home with you.

Auctions

There will be silent auctions located in the Contest Room. Items donated to LOG 36 will be up for bidding. Highest bidder by the Saturday Night Banquet will take it home. There will be live auctions at the Banquets as well. Payment for all items is expected by LOG 36 end so bring your check book.

Tech Sessions

Tech Sessions will be held late in the afternoon on each day of LOG 36. They will primarily be Question and Answer format.

Non-Tech Sessions

In tribute to the patient and indulging spouses of LOG 36 participants we are offering several Non-Tech Tech sessions. A Chocolate and Wine Tasting, A drawing Class by LOG 36 Special Guest Jon Dahlstrom, and a guided tour of Princeton University Campus are all on the itinerary. All of these programs have a limit to the number of participants. Sign-up sheet are located in the Registration room and if not fully subscribed will be moved to the Reception and help desk areas at appropriate times.

Special Guests

There are a large number of Lotus personalities and special guests. They are here to expand your knowledge of Lotus and enhance the enjoyment level of LOG 36. Please introduce yourself and make them feel welcome. They will be happy to sign autographs and chat about all things Lotus. Be respectful of their privacy and also of the need for others to spend time with them.

Friday Night Reception

The LOG committee has made all efforts to ensure that the Friday Reception will be a great time for all. While not planned as a dinner event the menu is substantial and plentiful so there should be plenty of food to go around. There will be multiple food service areas as well as multiple bar areas so there should not be long lines to satisfy your hunger or slake your thirst. Likewise there will be ample seating to sit and eat and plenty of room to rub elbows with fellow LOGers and LOG 36 Special Guests.

Vendors and Swap meet

Vendors will have rooms available to them across from the registration room and will be able to set up at the Reception and outside of the banquets. There will also a swap meet at the reception located in the rear of the multi-room reception area. If you wish to participate in the swap meet all LOG participants are welcome. Materials need to be clean (No greasy parts) and not oversized and sellers need to be with their wares at all times. There will also be a bulletin board for those who wish to post an ad located in the LOG 36 Help Desk Area.

LOG36 Casual Concours

The Concours will be held at Washington Crossing Park on the PA side in what is known as the Valley of Concentration, the actual spot where Washington and his troops encamped before their famous crossing of the Delaware River. Please be respectful of the historic significance of this location and the grounds we are using. The venue is open to the public so there will likely be a large number of tourists who will want to look at your car. Please be open and friendly and engage them as a Lotus enthusiast should.

Arranging the concours is always one of the most difficult things to be undertaken at a LOG so please arrive early enough to be placed in the correct position and patient after arrival.

Sales of any kind are prohibited at the venue so there will be no vendors or swap meet at the concours.

Food trucks will be serving lunch to those who pre-bought tickets. If you did not pre-buy a ticket when you sent in your registration you will not be able to get lunch at the food trucks. A ticket for each meal will be issued at registration and that ticket may be exchanged for a drink and an entrée at the food truck of your choice.

We must leave the venue as we found it. So please be careful not to damage the field while driving on it and please do not leave any trash behind.

There will be a huge number of voting categories to maximize the number of awards for the concours. Please take note that the Letter and Category on the cars you are voting for matches on the Placard and Ballot.

There will be short presentations on the historic events that occurred at the venue open to all LOG participants in the Visitor Center.

Saturday Night Banquet

Because the level of participation at LOG has grown it has become more and more difficult to find a venue that can seat the large mass of LOG participants all in one room. Therefore the Saturday Banquet will be divided into several rooms. There will be a video feed to the secondary room so those who are seated there are able to see everything that is happening and enjoy the guest speakers. To be fair about the seating arrangements a participants LOG Registration date is the process by which rooms are assigned. Participants will get a color coded ticket when they register which will correspond to the room they will be seated in. There will also be a color coded sticker which the participant will write their name on and place on the corresponding coded seating chart. We recognize that people may want to seat with their friends so you may trade your ticket and seating ticket with others if you like, but you may not write in others names on the seating chart until the sticker and ticket have been dispensed.

The Saturday Banquet will feature a Special Guest speaker as well as announcement of the Concours awards and be followed by a live auction.

Awards

Award winners for the Casual Concours, Contests and other awards will be announced at the Saturday Banquet. Prizes can be picked up immediately after the banquet at the LOG 36 Help Desk by showing your Registration tag to the LOG 36 Guru behind the desk.

Auction

There will be live auction of high end items donated to LOG 36 by sponsors immediately following the Saturday Night Banquet. The auction will be held in the primary banquet room. At the time the auction starts, those in the secondary room who are interested may join those in the primary room to observe and participate in bidding.

Grounds for Sculpture

Discounted tickets for Grounds or Sculpture were available on the LOG36 Registration form. If you did not buy them ahead of time you may still tour the Grounds for Sculpture by going to the gate and buying a normal priced ticket at any time during their normal operating hours. The first 150 Registrant who bought Grounds for Sculpture tickets will also get an early arrival ticket. Grounds for Sculpture will open at 9AM for the early arrival ticket holders. If you have one of these tickets and do not wish to use it you may pass it on to another participant. Ground for Sculpture is wary of 150 cars arriving en masse so please stagger your departures to avoid a mass arrival. There will be a parking lot volunteer to assist in staggering the departure. Once early arrival get in there will be dedicated parking area for their Lotus.

Self-Guided Driving Tours

There are a number of self-guided driving tours that LOG 36 have detailed. They are available on the LOG App as well as in written form at Registration and the Help Desk. You may do these driving Tours at any time during, before or after LOG 36. Places of interest and destinations are included in the directions.

Sunday Evening Banquet

The final official event on the LOG 36 itinerary is the Sunday Evening Banquet. This event will feature a Special Guest speaker and a buffet meal as well as handing out doors prizes to those who have stayed for the full event.

Guys,
My wife and I plan on going to Manhattan for two nights after LOG. I've considered leaving the car somewhere in NJ or taking it into the city.

Leaving it in NJ and taking the train poses some logistical problems for parking somewhere safe getting to the train station and travel early Sunday morning.

So now I'm leaning towards just taking it into the city and leaving it at the hotel....

Do you guys have any thoughts or recommendations?

I think it depends a lot on the hotel. The last time I was in NYC, we stayed at the Loews Regency near Central Park - not exactly a dump of a hotel - and the valet parking (only option) takes your car and drives it somewhere ~10 minutes away. When you leave, you let them know and someone goes and gets it and drives it back. I have no idea where this parking area was, how secure it was, how tightly the cars are packed, or how much care the drivers take. It wasn't a really big deal with our Outback that we had with us, but I'd be a bit more concerned with a Lotus! I think every other NYC trip has had us either taking the train in (not a bad way to go from Rochester, probably pretty similar from Buffalo) or staying outside the city.

If you find a Manhattan hotel that has onsite parking - especially where you can park it yourself - that might make it more attractive. In your situation, I would either have to do that or just stay somewhere decent with safe parking outside NYC and take the train in. The trains are pretty painless, and chances are that you'll be spending a little time on a subway if you're in Manhattan, anyway.

Can you afford to tip the hotel doorstaff profusely? I saw this done in Saint Paul when a guy's Ferrari stayed directly in front of a downtown hotel all week instead of being put in the ramp. The doorman on duty kept one eye on it at all times.

BTW, the Ferrari had New York plates.

I haven't parked a Lotus overnight in NYC. When I stayed in Essex House a few years ago and they valeted my TT - it took forever to get back, it didn't help that the door man made some off the cuff remark about not valeting a sports car...... Luckily it came back in one piece. We usually take a DD to the city so it's not an issue.

I've parked the Elise a few times in Philly and it was left out front so I just tipped the parking guys really well. I guess it all depends on the Hotel, although I'm thinking in Manhattan it will be difficult to find one to accommodate without paying/tipping a lot.

One idea may be to leave the Lotus at the LOG Marriott as it is secluded. There is a train station (Princeton Junction) a few miles away. It would mean a bit of backtracking to pick the car up but considering it's not that far from the NYC area it wouldn't set you back that much.
