    sorry for delay, I do not like to be online or connected when on vaca. To answer your question I'd say approx 2 weeks before the event at this time.

    If there is some special event that requires pre-paying, this of course may change, but I don't see anything like this coming up.

    Hope you guys can make it, I've held some prior Keeneland Do's/Meetups & they've been lots of fun.

    :cool:

    As I intend to drive to LEX from Chicago and back for this weekend, anyone who is in the Chicagoland area or along the route I will take (I-65 to I-74 to I-75) is welcome to ride along. Contact me if interested.

    Less than 2 weeks away, hoping some MPers might be able to come out & join us.

    More than likely we'll go the races at Keeneland on Sunday.

    Saturday will be reserved for one (maybe two) bourbon distillery visits and the early evening party & dinner out at a restaurant.
