12th Annual 2005
International Thunderbird Club Convention

August 9-14, 2005

Letter from the Dan Schaefer, ITC member and president of the hosting Chapter, Classic Thunderbird Club of Wisconsin (CTCW)

ITC Convention Welcome

Summer has finally arrived in Wisconsin and that means the “car show” season has started!  That also means the 12th annual ITC Convention, in Waukesha, is just around the corner.  Our committees have been working feverishly to finalize all the plans and arrangements for what we believe will be the best ITC Convention ever.  Those of you who attended the 1997 Convention know what a great facility they have at the Country Springs Hotel Water Park and Conference Center.  It was formerly know as the Country Inn.  They have done some extensive remodeling and it is better than ever.

So what are you waiting for?!  The hotel is filling up fast, so please make your reservations as soon as possible, and do not forget to send in your ITC reservation also.  Your early registration makes our preliminary arrangements that much easier.

See you in August!


Dan Schaefer, President
