Ideas for Spring & Summer events

Ok folks what would you guys like to do in the Spring/Summer?

I would like to do another F1 day.

We had a few members mentioned a show & shine detail day. Both Dean and Adrian has detailing knowledge and is willing to teach us a few things.

So post your ideas and we can start planning dates.

As of now these dates have been locked:
  • Tortilla Flats - February 23rd
  • Firebird Drag Night - March 7th
  • FocusFest 2008 - June 28th-29th

Don't forget...
  • JENNABEARS Car Show and Fundraiser - March 29th

I would LOVE to see a HUGE Focus turnout for this. I know the "muscle car guys" are going to show in force, but I'd love to make a great showing for our local Focus/Contour/Cougar guys as well.

Well, I know the Mazda guys are gonna be there and I was planning on going to just show face cause my car is not car show matterial yet.........

Shitty thing is I can't make it to FocusFest this year, I'll try for that one next year

We need to get a poll on who's going to the next In N Out meet late Feb and maybe see if we wanna whange the location cause the parking wasn't that great.

I'm DEFFINTLY down for a show and shine day. I need to detail the shit out of my car. I'm talkin clay, wax and polish!

Maybe we should set up a track day at Firebird to where we can drive thier course and not just drags???

Those are my thoughts right now. What goes on during the Summers around here other than the heat???

for track days at firebird, its VERY expensive to rent the track, we're talkin in the thousands range. the best thing to do is get with NASA, www.nasaproracing.com and register an event. they usually run the PIR or FIR main tracks, with FIR East thrown in every once in a while. I'll be attending the March 7/8/9th event and anyone is welcome to come down and ride along with me on the 8/9th since i'll be running one or both of those days. you should also check out www.clubracingaz.com as those are the guys who run the local NASA chapter.

if you wanna see how much fun it is, check out some of my albums here in my photobucket account. http://s45.photobucket.com/albums/f100/chewbaccaASU/

There's always autocross for those who wanna do something other than drag, but not risk their car at high speeds with concrete walls. ;)

Definitely down for a show and shine day. I need to wait to install new front axles and brakes before I autocross. I also wanna do that car show but I won't if I'm the only one attending. If a group of us go then it would be fine.

P.S. Sorry I wasn't able to help out with the move on Saturday. I have ben so swamped with work at the bar in Tempe especially with all of the events this past week.
