The wife and I have a wedding in VA to attend on that day. Unless it rains, we'll miss it this year. My car is actually ready to go this year too. I hope you have a really good turn out as usual.

I've planted the seed and it made the calendar. Should be there with my son.



I know it's a foreign idea for most of us here, but you might want to try taking the car off jackstands.

We had a large number of Galants show up in the years past. This number does not include the TEL or daily drivers that show instead when their Galant VR4 couldn’t make the trip. This meet draws people from 10 states, and counting.

We will be holding a raffle again this year.

All the money raised is for charity, Three Speed pays for the food, permits, etc.

TRE donated a rebuilt transmission to help us raise well over $1,000.00 last year Katrina Relief last year. We bought much need materials and gave to a neighbor who hand delivered to the people in need so we know all the money went right to who needed it.

Because I know as the tight knitted family that we are we want to break two records this year. The first we want to have 40+ Galant VR4 show up and we want to raise more than $1,200.00 this year.

I am going to ask for a donation of at least $40.00 and that will get you lunch and 1 ticket. Tickets will be $5.00 each if you want more.

So far... (I just started begging today)

This year TRE has donaated a Stage 2 rebuilt worth $1,200.00!
Bushur Racing has donated some T shirts.

Harry,

If there is anything I can do to help let me know. I can come down a little early and help you set up if you need me to.

He might John, I had told him I would help and then he went and set the date for the weekend that I can't make. I'll be there only if it is delayed by rain.

Mondo, you taking your (relativly) newly aquired Galant this year?

Not to sound like the raffle is the only reason to go (Lets be honest though, it is a motivator to drive 3 1/2 hours..) ,but didn't $20 get you five or six raffle tickets in past GTs?

Adding $40 to the gas and other expected and unexpected expenses for the trip there makes for a expensive day! It seems you should get more than one shot at the raffle.

I don't want to sound like a ungracious dick...Yes I know it's a good cause.

Yes but the everyone still get the same chance. If everyone has 6 tickets, 60 tickets, or 1 ticket the odds are the same, right?

I know some people don't like change but I am doing I am doing the best I can.

I am also thinking setup a trip to the local 9 turn 1/3 mile Go Kart track. If I get enough interest the track could be rented out just for our group.

Is that ok?

I really don't see the difference so everyone will get five tickets, not one.

I agree with the odds of winning a certain item, but with five tickets,you have the potential to win five different things (assuming there is as much cool stuff in the raffle as there usually is..)instead of just one.

I know it sounds really silly,but I know I'm not the only person who was wondering-so I figured I'd be the one who asked.

I like the Go-Kart Idea.

The problem with that is that while you're busy winning 5 things someone else could be winning none. IMHO once you win something you should be out except for the grand prize. Maybe a seperate "bucket" that would hold tickets for just the big prize?

On the other hand, if everyone gets 5 up front, there is less incentive to buy additional tickets.

Also, not to be an ungrateful dick as above How about..

Admission charge gets you 1 ticket. For $5 you can buy an additional ticket. There is one series of drawings for the smaller prizes, where you can only win 1 prize. Then in the grand prize drawing, if you bought an extra ticket you are guaranteed to be in the running. If you didn't buy an extra ticket, you may not be in the running at that point if you alreayd won something.



I know it's a foreign idea for most of us here, but you might want to try taking the car off jackstands.

I will think about and let you know what I come up with. Ultimatly I just want you all to come and hang out with me and have a good time.

I want to see all the Galant VR4s and catch up in person. In the years past I manned the grill and missed alot of the that so this year I will buy party platters of some kind and be more active with you guys.

No one is being ungreatful... I just want you all to have a good time and support the club and the shops that hook us up.

What do you think?

I'm actually going karting next Friday for my buddy's bachelor party. My only reservation about it is that its a pretty long ride and I have to make it home at a decent hour. My wife is being kind enough to not give me a hard time at all even though I'm leaving her with the new baby. I can't promise I'll go but I can promise I can come down a little early and help set up. Are you going to get a nice big sandwich, Harry?

As far as karting I could take it or leave it. I just want to stick around for the whole thing this time. I'd like to caravan down too.
