Jack Staggs Annual 356th day of the year party Dec 22, 2018

#1 Post by Trevor Gates » Fri Nov 23, 2018 3:56 pm

Jack Staggs hosts his annual 356th Day of the Year Party in San Clemente. Bring your favorite beverage, chip/dip or dessert, but most of all, bring yourself.

This is a free event, no registration required, open to anyone that’s even remotely interested in 356.

When? Saturday December 22nd, 2018 - this is the ACTUAL 356th day of the year for 2018 :-) Rain date tbd… this is SoCal.

Where? 1321 Calle Valle Unit N, San Clemente, CA 92672

Time? 10:00 a.m. to 5 or until the last folks leave. Lunch will be served at 12, to give everyone a chance to eat (not just the early birds).

How? Drive your 356 (beater, daily driver, rusted out, Concours, 4Cam, etc) and park it with as many as can fit on the property (lots of em). Or arrive in any manner possible. The important aspect of the party is that you get to this gathering.

Contact? Any questions at all, call Jack @ (949)492-9606 or, email Jack - ifix356@juno.com

Food and beverages are provided. However... contributions of either or both will be gratefully accepted and enjoyed by the many.

What is there to do? Eat BBQ, consume beverages, hang with a bunch of like minded Porsche nuts, look at lots of cool 356’s, marvel at and drool on Jack’s “356 stuff” and participate in a “Miniature Swap Meet*.”

*What’s a “Miniature Swap Meet?” Items for swap that you can carry in your 356. Bring out your extra parts and pieces to help other folks finish their projects! No truckloads please. If you’ve got a spare engine, transaxle, etc., print up the information, make it available to potential swappers. No speculators or sharks.

Not only is that the actual 356th day of 2018, it's the full moon (full at 9:48 AM).

OK, is it in San Clemente or in Eagle Rock (LA) per what I'm seeing on FB right now? That's a heck of a delta location so I don't want to get it wrong.
Thanks--

I suspect whoever made Sierra Madre Collection's Facebook post accepted the auto-fill location. To be sure, I e-mailed some of the senior Sierra Madre Collection folks to request clarification.

Sorry about that folks! This fantastic event is most definitely at Jack's shop in San Clemente and we have updated our Facebook post accordingly.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Thanks, Jorge. I'm roughly halfway between both locations but for others, obviously getting the location wrong would not have made their day.

Just a reminder we're a week away from the gathering. Jack and Pete had grey shirts made up with Jack's logo on the front and Kerry's silhouette on the back, they'll be available for purchase. Look forward to seeing everyone there - remember as Jack says, "anyone even remotely interested in 356's is welcome". Oh yeah, the garage band is a go again this year AND Bob is going to be grilling up the brats.

Thanks for posting those Jim.

Here are a few I took. The black and white pics are of Kerry Sink, Jack's right hand man that passed away this year. Jack had them placed around the shop in approximately the same location they were taken.

Last ones. Sorry so many of the pics are upside down. If you click on on them they magically turn right side up. :?: :?: :?:
