For those of you who don't know. We had a meet at the Block of Orange for the 1st movie and were pretty impressed with the results. We had two rows of 45 cars, a full row +1 of MKIV Supras, and a bunch of 300zx's and 3000gt's, etc. With a total of about 175 people attending the movie. And we raffled off probably $1500 in prizes.
For the 2nd movie we had about 300 people and close to 200 cars. 90+ MKIV Supras and everything from Skylines to Diablo's roll out.
I was late to my own meet driving straight from the body shop, so the cars were not organized in any fashion, and I think we gave raffled off some pretty cool stuff again.
Pics from the last 2 meets.
Having not really driven my Supra since the last F&F meet, I'm not overly excited to do a meet... But due to popular demand (increasing calls, emails and PM's) I figured that I'd better get on the ball and at least post up something. (EDIT: But having typed up synopsis's of the last 2 meets, I'm actually kind of getting excited about doing another meet.)
Date: June 16th ~6pm or 17th ~12 noon
Location: TBD in OC (Most Likely the Block at Orange)
In past years, I've bought up several hundred tickets and we've gone to opening night shows... But there has always been the option of renting out an entire theater on Saturday mid-morning. I still like the idea of opening night, but thought I'd post a poll to determine interest.
*** PLEASE RSVP HERE. ***
Useless Random fact: The real APR Evo (feature in the movie posted) has my damn 295 Pilot Sport Cups all the way around. I bought them off of Matt A after USCC and then loaned them to APR for this past years USSC.
Confirmed Date: Friday, June 16th.
The pricing structure has changed for renting theaters and requires paying full pop and buying out the whole theater of 399 seats. Due to that fact, I am going to stick with the original format of gathering on the opening Friday night (June 16th) at around 6pm and then seeing a show starting shortly after 9pm.
I am also working on some great raffle prizes from www.mvpmotorsports.com, Dyno Xtreme, RPS Performance Products, Powerhouse Racing, Boost Logic, GT Pro, HKS, Greddy, Brembo, MovieCarz.com, APR and many others.
This one's turning out to be a whole bunch more work than any of the past events. The Block doesn't currently have valet service, so after working through all of the options, I'm stuck doing what I'd tried to avoid at the past events.... Cutting the Block a $2k check, plus potential costs for a few extra security guards for the cars, permits from the city, etc.
While they won't budge on the cost, they are willing to give me more space... If we have as many cars as last time, it won't be a big deal and $10 per car will cover it... I'm not sure on how many people we had RSVP'd at this point last time, but basically in order to be able to pull this off and not lose money, we need a lot of people...
If we just go off of 90 cars, it would be just over $20 per person which is a little steep, so we need more cars.... I'd love to keep it at $10, but $15 might be reasonable, but then we'd need practically everyone RSVP'd to bring a car. So please round up as many (cool, friendly car people) as you can to bring their cars out.
CLIFFS: Parking will probably be $15, and I'm going to have to lay out well over $2k for parking alone, so please round up more cars to come out.
