Possible Norcal Event poll: Who wants what?

Well I am in the midst of setting up possibly 2 or 3 events at shops up here in the bay area. The shops have asked what type of event everyone would want so I'm posting up here to see what norcal people want out of an event.

Please vote for as many ideas as you want. I'm trying to see what seem to be the most popular.

There will be some on both days. Hopefully I can start getting at least one big event a month (cruise, shop day, etc, etc) and we can alternate.

I did a little research but didn't get far. How about renting out the Alameda Airstrip for a NorCal Mile? Mythbusters seem to have no problem playing out there. A controlled safe environment to go fast would be fun.

I will definitely look into that Dave. That's a great idea, or Moffett would work too.

5150 maro, I look forward to meeting you too.

I also think we should try to get a track day. If we try to get the Sacramento Raceway, we can have a car show/BBQ and cruise all in one day if we work it right. There is already an event that everyone might find fun...
Sat...Jun 19 2010 2nd Annual Chevy vs. Ford Drags
Simple enough! Chevys race Fords.
General Admission: $15
Race Entry: $40 car/driver
Gates Open: 4:00 PM. Time trials and racing: 5:00 PM

I'm guessing it will be sometime in late June or July. I'll be talking with them this week to see if we can nail down a date.

Bummer, looks like this may not be available. I found this on Wikipedia.

In late July 2006, the City of Alameda announced a deal with Navy that would turn the land over to the city for $108M. The preliminary development concept calls for 1700 housing units to be developed at the Naval Air Station site, now called Alameda Point. In May 2007 the City selected the SunCal Companies as the Master Developer of Alameda Point, and as of July 2007 the parties were negotiating terms for a development agreement.

Yo mindz! What up bro? What the latest her for a meet. I'd love to do a BBQ at a park somewhere where we could eat, play some frisbee, horseshoes, etc and get to know each other.

I believe the group called Luxury 4 Play controls the airstrip, they had plans to use it for some sort of membership deal I believe. At least I was told they had purchased it about a year or two back.

http://www.luxury4play.com/

They are now promoting the annual Gold Rush event, which should have a Camaro in it.
