People wanting to ride in the procession need to be at the Boulevard Drive-in no later than 10:50 as we will be leaving at 11:00 sharp. Drive in address is 1051 Merriam Ln. Kansas City, KS. Do not actually enter the drive in theatre area. Do not go past the TICKET BOOTH. You will find yourself in the middle of a swap meet. And you will be upset because you paid $5 to enter said swap meet. A line will form down the Main entrance past the theatre marquis on the far east side of drive with cars facing the entrance which is now your exit. When we leave we will have someone who will signal the cars to follow into the procession as we will be turning away from the drive in rather than driving by. I will have someone at the top of the hill, the entrance/exit point, to help coordinate this. I am asking that all customs, hot rods and custom bikes show up early enough to form head of line. After 10:30 you will just have to fall in line as you arrive. Square cars are all welcome in procession. Everyone is welcome in the procession. Los Punk Rods will form line at the Karnahan residence.
We will have an escort so just follow the car in front of you. For people who want to fall in at any place on this route you are welcome to. So......if you know someone who can't be there at the time we leave or if Lawrence people want to drop in as we arrive in Lawrence that is great.
We will leave the Karnahan residence and drive a block up to Merriam Ln. Will drive down Merriam Ln. to the I-35 on ramp. From there we will go I-35 South to I-435 West, K-10 on into Lawrence. We will head North on Mass. St. in Lawrence to 15th St. Take a right (East) on 15th and drive to Elmwood and go Left (North) to the Oak Hill cemetery entrance. We will have procession escorts to help with a nice flow for our ride. The escorts will control the speed and keep it around 55 to 60mph as some of the rides won't make it at 70 mph the whole way. What's the hurry anyway.
Should start around noon. Will be about a half hour to 40 minutes long. This is a graveside service so seating is limited to Todd's family and the elderly. The rest of us will have to stand. Or sit on the ground.
This will take place right after the graveside service at Burcham Park, 200 Indiana St. Lawrence, KS 66044. It is vegetarian only. No meat dishes. Besides that bring whatever you like to share. We have the shelter until the park closes.
Rather than flowers please make a donation to the Karnahan fund with check made payable to Leslie Karnahan and mail to P.O. Box 2614, Shawnee Mission, KS 66201 or via paypal. The paypal donation can be made at www.lospunkrods.com.
Kids are welcome. Mine will be there.
Thank you all for your support over the last couple of weeks. Let's make this the biggest procession you have ever seen. Let's represent Todd!
