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.

Yeah I could imagine it...Have you been to Vegas lately? Ever been to the track?

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.

Did I just stereotype us all????
I vote TX as well.

According to the squirrel there has been 12,074 Camaros sold in TX and 7,181 Camaros sold in CA and remember a lot of those where for the rental company and 4,897 Camaros sold in FL

So what some people are saying on the East Coast is keep it close to home so I don't have to travel very far and make everybody else make the drive. I would like to have gone to this one this year but don't have any more vacation time till June. If it is going to be on the East Coast every time, you can forget about a lot of members ever making it to one of the C5Fest. I understand about having it in the same place every year, but you are asking the same people to drive across country every time if they want to attend.
