The Mazda Group did their annual g2g at Irwindale and it was always REALLY expensive, and always a letdown. There were no food vendors (expensive), and the heat really ruined it for everyone. As much as I would love to do it at a track some where, it's beyond my resources. Also, you have to consider how much insurance is for an official event at a track. If someone gets hurt or in an accident during the event, FSC West/Me could be held liable. I don't know what they would get out of me if they sued... but you know..

It's pretty chill at the Harbor. Plus, you get tourists and locals there that stop in and check out the cars. Their are a number of choices of restaurants to choose from including one that was on Kitchen Nightmares, the beach to play in, the harbor to go paddle around on, and a great ocean breeze. For those that some from far away that stay overnight, there are hotels in the area that are inexpensive that are right in the heart of the Night life in Ventura, and the best thing is that by having here, the costs are low enough that the show is free!

Yeah I think gas prices going down to a dollar a gallon has more chance of happening then Fswerks showing up at the show. Unless minds has changed since the last I heard...

As for suggestions...

If enough people show up maybe have a runner up in each category. Doesn't even need to be a big prize, maybe just a small medal or trophy. If that's not feasible, then how about a second and third place for an overall category like best in show?

Maybe this time around a table or area could be set off to the side where people with spare parts can bring them to sell if they are interested.

I can't remember who it was that was winning all the raffle prizes. Though it was funny I think it would be fair to keep it to one prize to a winner.

Have an armed guard stand by the freebies to keep the non-participants from making off with them.

This would probably be interesting. Have a sound system showdown. A common song would be selected, maybe the day of the show, for each participant to play in their stereo and people judge which is the best sounding system.

I MIGHT extend an invitation to FSWERKS... I will go down to FSWERKS Personally and hand deliver the invitation (If I decide to). If they snub their nose at me again, then... there are plenty of other vendors.

The show categories are still under discussion with our main Sponsor and it really depends on what the Mazda Group (being the second largest group) decides to do.

They have their annual meet called "MAZFEST" that has been declining attendance due to poor planning, so I'm pitching the idea of having MAZFEST as part of FSC West. Part of the pitch to FSWERKS would be to have [Requires Approval] as part of FSC West as well, same goes for the Probetalk.com guys and the Fiesta Group. Basically, have all of the groups have their annual meet as part of FSC West. Each group would be responsible for having their own vendors as well as having their own award categories that they can present within their groups. FSC would have overall awards and some giveaways that would be appropriate for any recipient regardless of vehicle.

If every group jumps on board, this could really work well and keep my personal costs down, take a load off my shoulders, as well as give each group their own part of the show.

I will update when I decide. It's all logistics at this point.

I do remember after the show how you let those that remained know your feelings about them.

The idea you have for the other groups does sound logical and would be beneficial for everyone, especially you. If it works out it could end up being a pretty good show.
