Well I am going to be a day early. My general idea is a mainly GA, but think 5-10 from Alabama and another couple from South Carolina and Northern Florida might come if it is worth the drive.

November 20
A BBQ on the lake at Claystone park. The rent on the pavillion is only $25 and it has bathrooms, a sand beach with playground for kids, built in grill and trashcans provided. I am going to try to keep this as cheap as possible for eveyone. There is a $3 entry fee into park. This would go on for about 2-4 hours from 11ish till 3ish. Depending on sponsor participation I would like to have a raffle of 2 or 3 car parts with proceeds going to a charity we can all agree upon and maybe a car show with trophies kind of thing. (or is a all srt car show a little :gay: ) Also a chance of seeing a stage 3 car in all its glory (ahem, Dale)

In the next couple of days I am going to send off a proposal to some of the local area vendors such as Maxx Fab, Cooling Mist, Boost Solutions and one or 2 others. Mopar Super Center has already said they are in. Jeff and Ted rock. Even if they are not into a raffle I think they would be glad to come with there products for us to see up close. I for one want to lick one of Maxx's side dumps and would like to learn more about the cooling mist products.

About 3ish we pack it up and head to the silver dollar race track. About a 30 minute drive from the park. The silver dollar is having a test and tune that day and I am still working with the owner on a group discount. My idea is to get a list of track type guys who are willing to give up some time to us track virgins or rookies. I think a pass or 2 with a experienced driver in the car with you to give advice and keep you from looking like an overall fucktard would benifit many people. Lots of folks have never tracked their car because of fear of embarassment in front of a crowd at a track. This should help improve time and garner experience for the rookies. Test and tune goes well into the night.

For those travelling a great distance (I may be getting full of myself here) I need to know in advance to work with the local hotels about a group rate for that as well.

There it is in a nut shell. Anything you can think of to add? This is a rough outline with more details to come in the future. Me jumping thru the hoops is purely conditional on respone to threads like this. In the next week or 2 if it is just the people I normally hangout with anyways then screw it, we will just go to Dale's and put on my stage 3's (coilovers that is) and continue on with our lives in our own little srt clicks. So? you people in or what.

Thanks for the support Scott. It may just be me, but I think lots of people would love to see the products we rave about all the time up close and in person and meet the guy who makes them. Not to mention Maxx Fab has a big boy's psi-fi turbo kit for any of you who would like to see it in action as well.

Park is located outside of Macon right off of 475 for you people heading from the north or the south. The road heading east is 80 east and is a great road for opening it up a little. Lots of empty space and turns and twist. I was the yesterday with dlaser (now srt400?) to check it out and meet some of his car club buddies. Nice group of guys. I was a 4 banger in a stealth r/t, 3000gt kind of get together lol and they are some serious track types. They were down in the area for import wars at the silver. dollar today.

oh yeah, bring car parts you are looking to get rid of. Dont bring alot of crap that noone has any need of. Save everybody a little shipping and you have a stock airbox you want to get rid of for money or maybe even trade with that guy who has a set of clear corners and booger bushing you want. Suggest you find big ticket items a buyer before you bring it so you dont get stuck toting around a stock exhaust all day.

I'm there! Definitely going to need directions, I'm a bit anal about driving to another state and having zero clue on where I'm heading. As for that track, is it 1/4 mile or autocross? (crossing fingers for 1/4 mile)

Bama people need to remember that Rezin's craziness is the weekend before in N'awlins.... New Orleans Meet Thread

I'll pay the park entrance for any yahoos that make it to both events and bring pictures....
I'd like to hit N.O. up, but I can't make it to both events.

Not trying to take away from renzin8's weekend plan at all. This is the last scheduled tune and test down here and most have that weekend of anyways. Rezin8's weekend sounds like a great time and I know I would love to get down there myself, but I just dont see it happening with my work and family schedule. Greg bring your butt back to Georgia.


Yes, it is a 1/4 mile track

oh I'm in fo sho.... good plan Coy. I don't fancy my self a "great" 1/4 mile driver but I'm confident that I could teach a rookie how to launch and thats really the only trouble with drag racing. That being said, I'll volunteer a for ride alongs.


Edit: Last night I had some backwoods friends over and one of those insensative bastards got a bit too... how do I say this? Overzelous with my goat. Long story short, this person popped the goats colan and now the goat is in a better place :crying:


Anyways- point is: we need a new goat. Who's got one?

Coy. We're busting your balls....er, ball. :thumbsup:
And, uh, Coy....what the hell is the point of a beach at Thanksgiving??
I mean, it's warm and all, but Dale's nipples will be poking through his two-piece. :wah?!:
Well, we HOPE he's wearing a swimsuit this time. :deadcow:
