I received a post card invitation from the local AD for a Ball reception and museum visit. Has someone been to one of these? What can I expect? Who from Ball attends these events?
I'm not much on hobnobbing with 'society'-types or those who droll on watches. I like a fine, quality product as much as the next guy but this sounds a little too much for me.
The last time I went to such an event, I drove my Series III to a Land Rover dealer for a reception. You would have thought I had the plaque. 90% of the people there had no idea of LR's rich history - it's been replaced by a bunch of clueless yuppies who are seeking status symbols only. By that point in time, my newer LR had been driven to Belize/Guatemala, to CO (over 14,000 ft), cross-country at least twice and across the Mojave Desert at least three times.
Convince me to go - I'll keep an open mind!
