The track and hotel at INDY wanted the C5 community back. They saved the dates while the Moderators looked around. Every geographic group's interests were considered. In the end, getting to a pint where track and date selection is more than a year out is where C5FEST needs to be. It is the only way C5 will be able to get the most desirable dates and tracks.

Stay with the Moderators on this. They don't do C5 FEST for money. They do C5 FEST for the C5 community. Doug, Robert and Mike are all Texans. Do you really think they don't want the FEST in TEXAS? Jarrod and G want the FEST in California so badly so we can experience a SoCal FEST. They get it.

A little support might be in order for ALL the Moderators






FYI: I live in Texas and want a Texas C5FEST.
I owe you a beer my good man, best way I've seen it put in this whole freaking thread....

I have not read every post - but I'm appalled at some of what I see being posted here.

A couple of things:

1. No matter what location's chosen - some are going to be unhappy.

2. The moderators and volunteers don't make money on this. Anyone who has ever run a Camaro show should know this. further, the amount of time invested for something of this magnitude (the LARGEST camaro show BY FAR) is staggering.

3. There are not an overabundance of locations with everything needed to hold something like Camaro5fest - remember: you need a 1/4 mile track and lots of parking lot - has to be centrally located near an interstate - needs to have a hotel area whereby a couple of thousand people can check in -

4. Many tracks are booked a year in advance. And many tracks have a policy of "NO!!!!" - meaning - "they are not easy to deal with" (TRUST ME on this one.....)

5. Just because it's at Indy this year does not mean it won't be somewhere else next year. I see people complaining that it's not on the West Coast (was there two years ago) - I see people complaining that it's not on the east coast (it was there three years ago) Here's a thought: We build Camaros for many reasons - but one of them is the sheer joy of driving! I understand that budgets may be an issue for a few- - but not for everyone and besides - it may be one of the best road trips you've ever made. GET IN - BUCKLE UP - AND HEAD FOR INDY! (you will not regret it)

It's OK to comment - but when people start insinuating that people are getting kickbacks and making tons of money - then in my opinion, you're out of line.

Let's remember: This is a Camaro site. The name Camaro means 'Friend- pal - comrade' - -let's remain friends.

Now - from me to the Mods and Volunteers: THANK YOU for the thousands of hours you've put into these Fests over the past three years and into next year - I think you've done a GREAT job - especially when the size and scope of the show is taken into consideration. YOU HAVE MY COMMITTMENT THAT WE'LL BE THERE!

And lastly: For those who like to complain: How 'bout VOLUNTEERING to help out?
Very well said!

Agreed.

I've already voiced my distaste for the recycling of Indy again this year, so I won't continue to berate. But I will say this:

Planning these events is very difficult. I commend everyone that puts work in on the Fest.

That said, I think recycling the Indy venue was a mistake. So it's not in my back yard. Boo hoo, I'm only one guy.

But my thought process was this:

C5F1: Don't yet have my car, and it's pretty far but looks awesome! Would love to attend next year.

C5F2: Done deal, I'm there.

C5F3: Hopefully it will be a central locale, because C5F2 was AMAZING, and I'd gladly traverse a few states to attend. Plus it would be great to meet the east coast peeps that couldn't make our westerly AZ locale.

When Indy was announced I was bummed, but not let down. I could let the east side have their turn, and hold out for C5F4, even if it means stretching the budget a bit and driving to a central location.

CF54: Now I'm let down. Wow, not even leaving it in the east for a better venue, just leaving it at Indy and skipping us over. I feel shafted.


And I think that's what much of the negative feedback is really about. We got a little taste of the epicness that is C5F in 2011, and now get watch through the glass again... and cross fingers that in two years we might get another chance to attend? That's a long time to hold my breath.


And before you tell me to suck it up and fly, there's just no point in attending CAMAROFEST without my Camaro.

All I see now is C5 splitting in two, and the magic disappearing. Once that's gone, attendance will wane. C5F5? Who knows.


No hard feelings toward you east coast boys though, I hope you guys have a blast. Just cut us window-watchers some damned slack. Of course we're bummed.

There's a ton of other things I'd love to quote because of how messed up many (not all) of your guys' facts are. But I will remain civil here. However I will address something..

I am not bashing the moderators saying that they suck at life or anything. So those who keep "reading" that from my posts needs to get their eyes checked. I think the moderators do an outstanding job for what's put on their plates. However, I do (and so do many others) think that the moderators have made a huge mistake by putting the fest back in the same place as last years.

Oh well. I'll be making it to a local meet during fest so I can get my fun in, and I hope everyone else has some fun during whichever meet they decide to go to.

Once again, . Not everyone's out to ruin your day, boys. Don't get so pissed because not everyone is happy with the location.

You're still not being part of the team. and it sounds like you are ignoring everything that Pete has stated. WHERE ELSE COULD THEY HAVE HAD IT. OMG

Maybe the tread could be put in time out for 12/24 hours. Would be a shame to tear apart some of these friendships in the heat of the moment.

Sorry.

Like I said, I'll be keeping what I say to myself in order to keep it civil. I'll be going to my meet, and you can go to yours.

That is sad that you've seemed to have lost the spirit of what this community represents, and at a young age.
