East Spring/Summer Gathering 2014
June 6th-8th Gulf Shores, AL
Jack Edwards Airport - KJKA

A block of 15 rooms at the Staybridge Suites in Gulf Shores, AL have been reserved at a discounted rate (not much but some). The block is reserved from June 5th - 8th (Thurs - Sun), if you would like to come in on Friday that's fine too, just let them know what day you plan to arrive.


The phone number is 251-975-1030

The Group Name is "Thorp T-18 Group" and the Group Code is "EG1".

The block will be released after May 15th so please make your reservations before that.

This place is not on the beach and around 1 mile from the airport but is very nice. I'm assuming that some of us will be renting cars and or utilizing the FBO's shuttle to get around.

I will be contacting the FBO and notifying them of our plans as well as setting up a few group meals at the local restaurants.

Welcome to the new T18.net (Again!)

Welcome to Version 3.0 of the Thorp online community! Over the past year or so I've become increasingly frustrated with the platform the "main site" was running on. As the new Thorp Supply business gets up and running the two sites will be closely integrated thus I wanted a new and consistant look and feel across both sites. I plan to add more rich content to this site in the near future so stay tuned.
