Let's just have more regional events.....

Finally.....somebody has figured it out!

http://www.good-guys.com/PDF/GG_Schedule10.pdf

Let each region of the United States host their own FEST dates (with the scheduling help of the camoro5 staff). I'm sure there would not be a shortage of sponsors throughout the entire country.

I mean, that's what vacations are all about, right? You'll have the opportunity to attend your 'local' fest and then if you want to attend another one, GUESS WHAT? , it's already on the schedule.

Let's have a Fest every month.....just in different locations!

More Locations= more Camaros= more participants=more fun!

Problem with that is people will just have the attitude of, "meh, i'll just go next month." and the outcome will be less as time goes on. I'm pretty sure some regions already have some kind of get together/cruise that they set up.

I agree with you 2010Bill, If I remember right C5F started out as a South East region event and took on a life of its own.

Good point. BUT, we could start out by having regional events. For example: April and October events. Then expand to: April, July, and October events. Then eventually: January, April, July, October. I would anticipate that attendance would be great in numbers, no matter where it's held (think regional, OK?)

There will be over 120,000 first year Camaro owners. That's a lot of regional participation.

Good-Guys can't be that wrong with their model.

yeah, it could work, as a regional thing. When you said monthy, i thought you meant 12 times a year. I think it might work to have one a few times a year, maybe 3.

also, that good-guys model includes more than just one kind of car. you talk about 120,000 first year camaros vs. millions of other kinds of cars the good-guys target.

It's a good idea. But I don't think it would be a good idea to do it EVERY month.

Regional Camaro5 Fest sounds great. That way everyone could attend at least one through out the country. Its a win-win for everyone.

Camaro5fest Regionals for 2011

Hey all,

Just got this idea from another post in this section. I say we have four regional Camaro5fest. One in each region of the US. That way everyone will have a chance to attend and enjoy. I really don't think vendor shortages would be a problem with the popularity of the Camaro. That way we could do one in its original location of Valdosta Ga for the East, maybe Texas for the South, California for the West and lets say Minnasota for the North. Dates could be spread out like January for the South, April for the East, July for the North, and October for the West. That way if you could afford to, you could take in more than one. But at least everyone would have a chance to attend. I think IMO that this will please the overall majority of Camro5 members. Hope everyone will get on board and help out in there region. I personally will volunteer to help in anyway I am needed. What do you think??

I like this idea. I know when I was with the elementownersclub.com we had a meet where the Element was made, East Liberty, Ohio and the first meet was there, next year it was in St. Louis, the year in Vegas (hot as hell! The devil was seen standing in the shade sweating!) and then back in Ohio. Everyone wanted to be there but those in Cali and eastcoast had problems trying to get to Ohio. In 2008 we did regionals as well. They were all held at the same time though. I do like the idea of holding them per region so more people can participate. Thumbs up on this one!

Wouldn't that segregate the boards? People wouldn't have the motivation to go to anything far away because they'd know that in a few months there would be one closer. People in Philly wouldn't make it down to say valdosta if we have it there again because in 3-9 months there'll be one in their back yard. It would cut down on the epic caravans and my guess is would also lower attendance for each fest.

I don't know the official numbers for the first event, but what if four regional events brought in 500-750 cars each?

More Locations= More Camaros= More Participants=MORE FUN!

Great for the attendees but not so great for the people that have to put on these shows.

Sounds great but the problems associated with planning and who is in charge to plan, rent a track, secure a host hotel, talk to local officials, etc, etc...no way a group could do that for 4 different regions plus the annual event.

Lots and lots of time and money are fronted for projects like these...I know, I've done them before! I've laid over $5K of my own money down to host such events with track rental, plaques, and host hotel deposits...who is going to do this? 4 times?

Local or regional events are awesome, and can be done prior to the annual event. But I'd say keep them that way, local, smaller and just have folks together to have fun.

Hard to explain...but I've been there and done it...it's tough work, long hard work and you are banking on a return of your investment to just break even!! Might not happen every time!

I like the annual event...if it means I travel for 15 hours like I did this year, then so be it, I'll travel 15 hours again! That's the beauty of C5F...getting an entire community together at one location, for one hell of a good time!

All the problems you listed are done anytime a event is planned. I think each region should have its own planning committee instead of just having one planning board. Hey, If it makes this happen I will gladly serve on the SouthEast committee. No one says it would be easy. Just ask the committee who put this years Fest together. But in reality I feel its best for the Camaro5 family as a whole. Not everyone will be able to afford a 15 hour trip and won't come. But if its closer to there region, then they will. More people and cars equal more money. It can be done if everyone gets on board and does there part. Count me in!! I would really like to see this happen.

Hate to burst the bubble guys but there is no way we can manage multiple events a year.

We might consider 2 if C5F II goes well. But we are gonna take a less is more approach for now and get the western US involved then move central.... If all goes well then we may consider holding two events a year but not next year...

Sorry.

And there are numerous once a year events out there that are consistently successful.

We don't want to count our chickens before they hatch. I'm just not confident that we can cover the cost and get the draw we'd need at each location.

But we appreciate the idea.

Come on GTAHVIT, don't be so quick to bust our bubble. You guys would not have to plan multiple fest. It would be up to each region, leaving you guys off the hook, so you could just enjoy the show.
