Exclamation ***San Antonio Photoshoot! Tower of Americas @ 9am, 11-22-09. BE THERE!***

UPDATE:

We have been granted permission by Dave Bartell, whom I understand to be in charge of all operations, events, and is the security director for the Tower Of Americas and Hemisphere Park, to have our 9am photoshoot at the base of the Tower of Americas.

THAT'S RIGHT, Camaro5! We have permission!

Now, everyone is going to need to be on the same track with this.

We meet at the back entrance to Hemisphere Park off of Bowie street. This is basically behind the convention center at the Tower of Americas parking garage. Right behind the security booth is an entrance where we will be granted admission to the private property to park our cars around the Plaza and tower. Dave has his team member by the name of Emilio who will be standing by allowing us entrance to the grounds.

Dave said he will have Emilio ready to open the gates for us beginning at 8am, but I told him we would try to show up no earlier than 8:30am. I think if we arrived between 8:30 to 9am, we would all be fine.

There is NO CHARGE to set up for this event. However, there is one rule that must be followed at ALL TIMES. THERE WILL BE NO HORSEPLAY IN OUR CARS. No peeling out, no stupid, idiotic actions or we will ALL be removed from the park and will NOT be welcome back. I repeat, we will NOT put up with any stupid stunts what-so-ever. If you want to act like a moron, do that on YOUR time. We are representing a great community and we will do so with RESPECT for Dave and HIS operation. If you can not follow this rule, DO NOT COME OUT WITH US.

Also, if you have Camaro5 shirts, wear them! We'd LOVE to see as many people as possible sporting their Camaro5 attire.

We have NO time limit. We arrive, get set up, take pictures, and if we are enjoying ourselves, we get to stick around (might want to pack up a few lawn chairs just in case). So, if there will be a drive afterwards, we either need to set that up, or maybe hold off on the drive for another day. I have a route drawn up by Sway, a member who does a Solstice drive every year. I, personally, think a drive might be a good idea for another day...just because this might end up taking a while if we are having fun.

This CAN be a yearly event...same date...it's up to us. The Tower of Americas already hosts 3 other car clubs and shows there on their grounds. So, this is not a new idea to them. They are happy to "set this in stone" for us, if you will, so that we may be able to have our "car show" held here every year.

NOTE: The San Antonio Auto Show will also be running concurrently with our Sunday morning meet and photo shoot. The auto show is literally being held only a hundred feet away in the buildings lining Hemisphere Plaza. So, we might end up getting a nice crowd around the Tower. If you are concerned for your Camaros safety, leaving early won't be an issue...DO NOT TOUCH signs can also be placed on your windows around your car after the photoshoot, etc. This will be a first time event, so I don't exactly know how all of this will pan out.

However, these are the plans as of now.

Meet at 8:30am to 9am by the parking garage and you will be shown in. Bring a chair and your camera...

I WANT TO SEE EVERY PERSON IN AND NEAR SAN ANTONIO COME OUT!

The import crowd brought 60 cars to their show this year at the Tower of Americas.

LET'S BEAT IT! EVERYONE around San Antonio, bring out your 5th Gen Camaro to show by the Tower of Americas!!!

I need to go get a tripod for my camera. It's a 12 megapixel and takes GREAT shots...but darnit if sometimes they get blurry.

I just pm'd about 25 people. Hopefully we get a good reply back here. I want everyone in and around SA to come out.

BTW, the "stingray concept" will be a short walk away inside the auto show along w/ a dyno display motor from GM. Just FYI in case there are any that want to check out the auto show.

U-DA-MAN!

Doug,

You are DA MAN! I'm in!

I think you're right about putting off the drive for a separate get together--especially since the car show is on. I know I'm going to want to wander over and take a look-see. Maybe we can swap out shifts and keep an eye on each other's cars.

Anybody know how much tickets are for the auto show (and where to get them)?

Dudes (and dude-ettes)...I'M PSYCHED!

Let's DO this!

Cheers,

Like I said, I'll bring my tripod, so if anyone wants, they're more than welcome to borrow it. I may go drop by Best Buy Friday afternoon and pick up a monopole too, just for the heck of it.

I felt kinda lame but I left a note on a Victory Red 2010 at the Walmart by my house telling them about the photo shoot... don't know if they're already a member of Camaro5 but figured it was worth a shot trying to get someone else out there for the photo shoot!
