    This would be the way to go I agree. Less involved with managing it all. Good idea.

      Since we've revived this thread, I want to mention that Adam and I aren't resting on our heels. On the contrary, we're hard at work securing sponsors, working out details, and getting commitments on donations for raffle. So, look for many more posts coming soon. Also, look to the sytyshindig.com website for updates to the schedule and other things.

            um... SOUTHEAST shindig....


            Decision has already been made. Savannah, GA is the location, exact same place as the 2010 event.

              Hearing you on FM, but you do have to realize that was a very unnatural temp drop for us last year. They had a big race in Jeffersonville that same night and none of the local heavy hitters were around. As a result, the track didn't put the money/effort into making the surface ideal.

              In fact, I had to keep checking with Ron throughout the evening to make sure they were even gonna run. His response? "If you guys are coming we'll stay open." So, yeah, the track with crap last year, but TBH I didn't expect a whole lot more considering the circumstances.

              Weather is always the great variable in car shows/meets. Say a prayer that we get good conditions in 2012. Adam, and I are working on the schedule of events, but it's looking like drag racing will be Friday afternoon/evening this year. The AutoX will be all day Saturday. More details to come soon.

                      You gotta stop working on that goofy VW before you can get anything done on your Ty.

                              If I make it, It would most likely be in a Rental. Not that I dont trust my truck to drive that far, but I dont trust myself to not break it going that far.(heavy foot)

                                If that's the case, then we could both ride in my car if you want. I am planning on my Subaru, but it is a long way out.
