The Rockford Files Cast and Crew Party 2013 will be held at Galpin Ford, 15505 Roscoe Blvd., North Hills, CA 91343. They have a Community Room, on the second floor, which we will be using. This room has been used for special meetings (such as the NFL with the City Of Los Angeles). Time will be 9a - 12 noon on Saturday, June 22nd. We will have coffee and danish available in the morning.
This year we will be doing something different. We are going to have guest speakers to talk about their experience working on The Rockford Files and with James Garner. So far, we have the following guest speakers:
Roydon Clark, James Garner’s stunt double since “Maverick” in the 1950’s through a number of other projects. On The Rockford Files, Roy was the Second Unit Director and Stunt Coordinator.
Robert Zilliox, Set Decorator from 1975 through The Rockford Files made for television movies through the 1990s.
Steve Reich and his partner Steve Hoffman were in charge of finding and working on the Firebirds for The Rockford Files made for television movies.
Check back to see who else we are able to add to this list.
Pat McKinney will have his Rockford Files Memorabilia Collection on display, along with his actual screen used Firebirds.
The cost is $20.00 per person. We will have a Paypal account for you to use shortly. There is a limited amount of space, so it will have to be first come first serve basis.
We are working on t-shirts that will be available for purchase. We are a non-profit organization and are trying to keep the cost down as much as possible.
We will be breaking for lunch around 12 noon. There are a number of restaurants in the area. In fact, Galpin Ford has their own restaurant on the property, and there is a Denny’s across the street. Everyone will be on their own for lunch. Here is a link to Galpin Ford’s on-site restuarant:
We will then meet around 1:30 pm back at Galpin Ford and go across the street to view their private collection of cars.
For those interested, we will be meeting on Sunday morning early to carpool/caravan down to Paradise Cove. I am including a link to the Paradise Cove so you can see the prices.
