Skip anything official for Hot August nights...To register and be a part of the shows you have to have something 1972 and older.

Did I just stereotype us all????
EXACTLY! We have almost half the population of C5F showing up to a WEST COAST meet. You guys may have had 500 or so members at C5F, but they were from all over, including Canada! If we can pull half that from just three neighboring states out west--I'd say we have a pretty high concentration of members.

If anyone that runs C5 is officially interested in something like a "West Coast" meet in the Reno/Tahoe area or this gains momemtum ill certainly be game into being a local hookup to help get it arranged.

It might be cool if everyone were to get accommodations in Reno, cruise to Tahoe for a meet, the cruise back to Reno to party.

I say it has to be back at the same place, perfect facility, not to crowded...could you imagine trying to do a cruise in Vegas??? The track wants us back, restaurants are posting on our forum thanking us and already offering things if we come back.

When we come to a decision for next year we will let everyone know. Like I said in other threads. It's too early to talk about it now.

Camaro5fest is a community event. We don't want to isolate ourselves or form "chapters" it would only break apart the community.

I'm with Milk on this one. Why make two kinda big events when there can be one BIG A$$ed event. We make it a two or three day event and it'll be extra worth the traveling for those wo can do it and those who can't can come when it gets close to them.

But I think it was Scott who mentioned that if we get it going a full year in advance, it would be even bigger.

I'm sure you guys are going to give it tremendous thought, and peoples feelings are going to get hurt (geographically speaking). I'm also sure that you guys realize the magnitude of what you started and the opportunity that exists to create something that is sustainable for the long haul. A solid anchor is will help ensure your success...as unfortunate as that anchor location may be for some.

I'm attending the C5/C6 Bash with my father in a couple of weekends...and their schedule is AWESOME. The link is below and hopefully it can give you all some good ideas for next year and offer some insight into opportunities for extending the 'boundaries' of the event (noting how much everyone LOVED the one cruise event this weekend).

Well, if it's close enough to me I can bring my car to the track. If not, I can fly out and be a drunk idiot while others tear up the track. It's a win-win either way

I am trying to talk them into having it in Topeka, KS.

Here is the track there. We could have dragstrip and road coarse. Pretty much the middle of the USA for all to hook up at.

Kansas.... thats the same exact distance as GA for me and it is centrally located BUT... you need to look at popultion desity...

There are more people within a days drive to Lexington, KY then any other city. I suggest having it somewhere centrally located to the POPULATION DENSITY not the GEOGRAPHY of the country. Sure, it screws the people on the west coast but so what, they live on the west coast... They have 70 degrees and sunny year round!

I think you would see more people attend if it were around KY or TN... problem is where? SGMP was awesome and i'd have no problems going back there and I'd make it a longer trip. Maybe spend a few days in Savannah.

I think a more central location would be better for attendance. I'm not complaining, just saying people from the west coast would more inclined to make the trip.
