Well, since we didn't have much planning participation...we made some decisions and hope people show up. The date will be June 6th at Reid Park Ramada #20 in Tucson @ 10am. Entry fee will be $12.00 per person 12 and older, 11 & under will be free. Entry fee will include hamburgers/hotdogs/chips/cake and cover additional expenses such as park usage, napkins,plates,utensils, etc... Also we will be collecting an optional donation for a local non-profit organization. The deadline for payment will be May 15th. We decided that NON-alcoholic drinks will be provided by the participants. So a cooler, ice & will be required along with any folding chairs/pop up shades you want to bring.
If interested in attending please reply to this thread, and include the number of individuals and if you're bringing a Nova or vehicle of interest to the event.

Thanks,
Steve

Glad you worked out the details Steve

Give me an address and a name to whom to send payment to for 2 people, unless I can pass off for 11 years old :D
I will try and bring the Firebird.
The way I read it we bring our own drinks?
Any more info on a place to stay?

Hope a couple of other SoCal guys can make it

Wade,
You can send a payment to myself anytime before May 15th. Anyone who wishes to participate can send a payment to my paypal accnt [email protected]
Yes, each party will bring their own drinks, this will cut down on expenses and trying to figure out what everyone wants to drink. There are stores close by the park, for any last minute, unplanned, missing items that always seem to pop up. I will look into the hotels and help obtain any maps, directions, or anything else you may need. Just let me know....

I don't have pay pal. Can I mail you a check? If so pm me your address and full name to put on the check.

Also an address for the park, and a good area for a motel. I will look on Expedia for one, just need to know what area to stay away from.

Thanks

Wade,

The address for the park administation office is 900 S. Randolph Way Tucson, AZ , that will get you in the right area if you do a mapquest or google.
The park is pretty large, probably the biggest in town. There is a DoubleTree hotel on Alvernon across from the park which might work.....but probably your best best would be close to the airport I think there is about 7 of them all grouped together. I would stay away from Downtown and South. Tucson areas for both your car and personal safety.

I will pm you my address if you want to send a check,....

I wouldn't stay near the airport, I would stay at that Double Tree earlier mentioned. That is a nice place and safe for your car.

What is wrong with the hotels near the airport, other than the possible noise issue? They are all fairly new, and look pretty nice granted I haven't stayed there but I wouldn't have a problem :confused: But then again, I am from the SW side :D

The check will be in the mail Monday.

When it gets closer to the date I will look for a hotel and have you check out the ones I am looking at.
The days that I will be there depends on where I am working at at the time. I am hoping to get there on Fri and leave on Sun. This way we might be able to hit a cruise night at a burger stand or something on Fri or Sat night.

Wade,
Yes I got the check...thanks! I haven't done anything with it because I was training out in the field down south at Ft. Huachuca Army base. I don't want you to put in anything if you're not going to make it though....:rolleyes:

John,
Yeah, if you guys want to come out let me know so we can plan accordingly and we'll make sure to save you some spots. :D

Ok I just wanted to make sure it made it to you ok.
As far as cashing it go ahead and add it to the fund. If by chance I can't make it, use it to help pay for your expenses, or donate it to the charity. If you don't I will be upset with you.:devil:

Gerry,

Alot of people have expressed interest, but I'm still waiting on payments so hopefully they are not all talk. I'm still pushing it, and hope to get some more people in the next month. Right now it's been pretty quiet, hope to get that spark going soon!

**bump**

Come on AZ guys, we can do this! The better turn out we have the more likely we will be able to get future support/sponsors. This is my last ditch effort, if this is a flop I'm throwing in the towel, and succumb to the non-existant Nova scene here in AZ. :(

Don't do that. You just need to keep trying. Remember our BBQ's started off small also.
I know if more people were working more of us would make it out there.
