Re: 2018 Fan Belt Toss Oct 26-28th Palm Springs, Ca.

How many of you have read "A History of The Great American Fan Belt Toss and Swap Meet" by Ken Schifftner in the September, 2018 Corsa Communiques?

It is the history of the first Great Western Fan Belt Toss, in 1978. Lots of pictures from the "early" days!

As someone who participated in those early days of the Fan Belt Toss it was a great read for me. The really cool part was the trip up the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to the 8500 foot level of Mt. San Jacinto.

Make your plans to participate in the 41st annual Great Western Fan Belt Toss & Swap Meet.

Registration information and forms are at: [www.sandiegocorvair.com]

Please notice that the Host Hotel has changed it's corporate affiliation for the Fan Belt Toss.

Formaly, known as the Quality Inn it is now the Travel Lodge by Wyndham. Phone number is exactly the same for direct reservations:

Special Hotel Pricing: $72 per night, Call hotel direct at (760) 323-2775 Let the desk know this is for the Corvair Club event. They now answer the phone "Travel Lodge". It caused me some confusion when I called them.

Today, I got an email from Choice Hotels Customer service saying they were rejecting 2 different reservations because of the corporate affiliation change.

Just want to make sure everyone knows about the unfortunate name change.
