Website: http://www.finandfeatherresort.com


Here is a note from the Fin family about the cut off date for registration before the spaces are released back to general public requests. This is by a lake and the summer fills fast with groups and individuals.


Good Morning,

We look forward to being the host location for your car owners in June. We have the group listed as Midwest Sevens Car Club in our reservation system and individuals would need to call and claim their room by February 18th.

This time of year our reservation desk is generally open Monday-Friday 9am-3pm at 918-487-5148 central time.

The Fin Family


Wendell and Bev are working out the driving routes and other events.


So this is all for now. Again the cut off for reservations is Feb. 18th.

On June 14th through 17th, there will be a Sevens get together in Colorado Springs, Colo.

There will be a Pikes Peak drive, and some track time.


Here's the info from Tom Carlin.












Hi to All,


Dates have been selected for a Colorado Seven Festival, they are July 14th through 17th. The following is an outline of the event.


Day 1, July 14th, We will depart From Colorado Springs and drive to the top of Pikes Peak (http://pikespeak.us.com/Essentials/hours-and-fees.html ), the road that the Pikes Peak Hill Climb is held on each year. This is a 19 mile drive each way ending at an elevation of over 14,000 feet and is now paved the entire way. Next would be lunch at Wines of Colorado (http://www.winesofcolorado.com/ ). They have a nice patio along side a creek. After lunch we will head to our overnight accommodations the historic Victor Hotel (http://www.victorhotelcolorado.com/ ). This is off the beaten path but only 6 miles to the historic gold rush town of Cripple Creek (http://www.visitcripplecreek.com/ ) where we will go for dinner. in Cripple Creek they have saved many of the old buildings from after the fire in 1896. There is low stakes gambling in Cripple Creek so anyone wishing to try their luck at the slot machines or blackjack tables could, if not a walk around town and back to the hotel at your leisure. There are many things to do in this area including narrow gage train rides, gold mine tours, hiking, historic tours, and of course scenic drives.


Day 2, July 15th, We will return to the Colorado Springs area via a slightly different route with a drive through Garden of the Gods http://www.gardenofgods.com/home/index.cfm?flash=1 )


Day 3 and 4, July 16th and 17th, Track days at Pikes Peak International Raceway (http://www.ppir.com/ ) , this track is about 15 miles south of Colorado Springs . They have infield RV hook ups for those who would like to stay at the track and parking for tow vehicles during the tour.


We will be using the Crowne Plaza in Colorado Springs (http://www.cpcoloradosprings.com/ ) as our host hotel. They work with car clubs on a regular basis and have nice facilities. The track rates will be $150 per driver per day.


This is an event for all 7 type cars so please put this out to any other part of the 7 community at large. There is a lot to do in Colorado and this could be used as a start to or the end of a longer vacation including other family members. There are also a number of things for non driving family members to do during the track days if they wish.


More information will follow.




Thanks for your response,




Tom Carlin

Fellow Se7eners,


If you are going to the Gathering in Gove, OK June 6-9 could you please send a note (to Dale) if anyone in your party has a food allergy or something they can only eat? Resources are limited in rural Oklahoma.


Also, folks if you are going please confirm to Dale that you are show up. Please include your email, cell phone number, and any emergency contact info. Also if you are still thinking about it please decide ASAP so he can get a good count estimate for planning purposes.

A message from Dale:

Anyone coming to the Oklahoma get together and arriving after 5pm, please call the Fin and Feather office before then and tell them you will be arriving later.


(918) 487-5148


They will give your cabin/room keys to their security person. When you arrive, pull under canopy with your lights on and wait for the security person to meet you. They will sign you in and give you keys.


For those bring their cars on a trailer, South of the registration building is an open parking lot (dirt/gravel). We can leave trailers and tow vehicles there.


Be safe in traveling. If there is any more updates I will try and get them out a couple days before the event.
