2015 Mini Regional

miniregional2014flyer_banner_rev.png

As discussed during last night in the Nov 19, 2014 meeting we're going to get an early start on the preparations for the 2015 Mini Regional. We're obligated to manage it again this year since the Columbia Chapter did it two years in a row.

As you all know this event was an overwhelming success, and we're all hoping to do equally well, or better, next year - with your help and a little extra time.

We've decided to do the show again at Griot's and Kenny will find out what dates we have available to us. And we're thinking to do it earlier, like late July, to make sure the kids are all out of school and can make it (assuming you have any of those). Griot's has a great setup for BBQ's and picnic atmosphere - something we can make better use of next year.

If you managed a position last year, let us know whether you are willing and able to repeat the same duties this year - or if you'd like some help.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

I'll be glad to manage the registration table again, and possibly more.

I will do what I can depending on date. The flip side of having it when school is out - that is when we go on road trips and family vacations without pulling the kids out of school. Last year we were traveling cross-country for three weeks!

2015 Mini Regional

It is so hard to lock in a date when we travel as much as we do, but we will help. My health issues have improved much over the last couple of months, so that shouldn't hold me down. Larry & Carol

Just a heads up time is already running out. Has anyone got a hold of Griots to get a date yet?? Time to get this thing going.
We need a date without that nothing els can move forward. I am super swamped at work but I will do what I can but i know without a date the vendors will NOT donate.

Like last time, I'm not getting an email response from Griot's but I will try again. But when I looked at the calendar several weeks ago it looked pretty bleak for anything before schools start up. I think those were probably snatched up last year.

So, unless someone see's a date that I'm not seeing, it looks like September again. But if we decide it needs to be while school is out for summer break, we will need to change venues.

3 days in July it seems if we avoid the 4/5th - 11th, 19th, 26th -
then August 29th.

OK...I could have sworn July was full. If I don't hear from Guy in a couple of days I'll try calling. I would much rather do a Sunday show so that leaves 7/19 and 26th.

Any preference? Or does anyone think Saturday is better?

Wink Raffle Items

Kathy and I would be glad to run the raffle and organize the items. (that is of course as long as everyone gathers donations with all the effort of last year). July 26th works for us.

2015 Mini Regional

I was worried that the meet would conflict with Hot August Nights, but looks like the 26th will work great. Looking forward to a fun drive down there again. Hope we get even more cars this year. Larry

Thank you very much Don for doing this legwork.

So now we can move forward and contact sponsors and vendors to get our goody bags and raffle products for a certain event. Steve, are you still game for making a few calls?

As discussed in the Jan 21 meeting we will be purchasing Costco dogs/polish, chips, and soda to offer up for sale at a value to recoup the cost. This will hopefully allow people more time to look at the cars that are there instead of heading out to find food. Larry and Carol (Badbird) have volunteered to get this and we'll arrange to transport.

We discussed making, perhaps, a poster this year instead of a calendar. We can fill it with images and other Falcon memorabilia. So hopefully Joanna will hurry up and get married so we can use her talents for this.

Everyone should search their stashes of parts and other automobilia for raffle items.

I will contact the national club to get this into the newsletter. Having a new graphic for this would be nice. I'm not sure we want to recycle the artwork from last year or not.

We can now post something on the home page, but the issue of the artwork may again prevent this.

We are going to be at the swap meet again this year too, so having a flyer for this needs to be done.

There may be things I'm missing , so if you have anything to add - please do so.

I'll start making my list. I'll need the current flyer and maybe some kind of photo from last year as well. It's good to show what happened on our first attempt. Also most vendors want some sort of "proof" that you are actually doing a show. Too many people trying to get freebies under false pretenses.
The sooner I get this stuff the sooner the calls can begin, and the sooner the calls begin the better the chances of sponsors. I know I can't count on the same ones from last year and with a little ammunition from last years turnout I think we'll be able to up the game for this year.
Also huge would be the national news letter ASAP. Maybe we can drag in some more out of staters and out of countriers.
Cool let stay on top of this and really blow them out this year! We need to top 75-80 from last year. 100-150?????
