2017 Comet Gathering

Post by corky broughton »

Let me start by stating Roy and his family are in my prayers. It was such terrible news to hear of his untimely death. I was at the NHRA Hotrod Reunion in Bakersfield, Calif. when I was told about Roy. He will be missed and I'm certain he will be talked about at this years Gathering. I was hoping to see him drag race his Comet while at Bakersfield.

The 2017 Comet Gathering at Pigeon Forge, TN is just around the corner. All years and makes of Comets are welcomed . The 2017 Comet Gathering is June 2nd (Friday), 3rd (Saturday), and 4th (Sunday morning). There are no fees or charges to attend but you must be prepared to hear and tell stories about cars you have seen or once owned. You do not want to miss this years Gathering. The Gathering is at the MountainBreeze hotel in Pigeon Forge, Tn. I hope you will make every effort to make the event this year. Contact Susie at the hotel in Pigeon Forge, TN. to make your reservations. I cannot wait to see and hear the stories. Just as important are the stories being told but having the general public stop by and reminisce about having a Comet or someone in their family owning a comet. The group that attends each year are great people and you definitely want to meet and shake hands of everyone that attends. Happy New Year. :D :D :D :D Corky

Last year was my first time at the gathering, and it was a blast. Moonshine makes everything better.

Pop ,I have been getting ready since last June I know you have a lot further to travel than I do but you could just drive her down and not have to worry with pulling her and probably would be lot faster either way CUN P/F n JUNE ROLL COMETS J L

All this talk of fruit juice has made me thirsty fellas. I don't recall any moonshine. You must be imagining things. My Comet may not be there this year either. Depends on what fabricator buddy of mine says. I'm not a welder, so I I have to have a little help in that department. Hopefully my 54 f100 will be up and goin if the comet is down. If not I'll have a cooler in the back of one of my F150s. Can't wait to see everyone, Pugs.

Ok folks. Update on the fires in PF. They were centered more around the Gatlinburg area. Everything is good at the River Breeze. Stopped in and confirmed my reservations. Pop they said I couldn't have the broom closet so you are safe. Had dinner at Bennett's next door and the BBQ was good and the drinks were cold.can't wait for June to get here, Pugs.
