Tank Farm open house Sept 23,24
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Is the program the same on both days or is it worth sticking around for both?

I stayed both days last year for the first time, and while the large features were the same (e.g., the USMC historical company exhibition), they did drive a few different machines around on Sunday. Will you be going, Walt? Smile

I am seriously considering it. It's a good bit of driving for me (10 hours), but it would be the first chance I have had to see WWII era vehicles actually in motion rather than on static display.

It's a worthwhile event. Unless something comes up, I should be there Saturday.

I will probably aim for Saturday as well. I will need to come up with a distinctive piece of clothing to wear so people can recognize me.

I'll probably just wear something obviously connecting me to Michigan. Perhaps a bright red Detroit Redwings shirt or hoodie.

Sounds like a plan. I'll be sure to wear something Penguins related.

I was too lazy to go buy a Redwings shirt. Look for the guy wearing a blue cap that says "LST 393 Muskegon MI". I am about 5 ft 8 in, with a beer gut and beard, mid 40's in age. I will probably be lugging around a video camera and tripod. Weather reports say it will be warm, so cargo shorts and a tshirt. my email is tanksonthebrain @ gmail.com.

NMAW, VMMV Tank Farm program was once again a very good program. This year had a USMC LAV-25A2 8x8 armored car, may trucks, jeeps, and Hummers, and the usual tank displays. Photos: www.flickr.com/photos/brick6757

Great seeing you again Rick and meeting Walter! Glad you made it to Carlisle on the way back. My only disappointment of the weekend was that I didn't realize the LAV was going to leave early; we started a loop around the field and I was going to get a close look at it before we left, but by the time we made it back there it was gone. Sad

Great seeing you there again Chris! Sorry to say I didn't get to meet Walter. The LAV-25A2 was from the USMC at Quantico, VA. Good I photographed it early, didn't know it would be gone so quick.
