    I’m not usually a car show guy, but it being so local and for a good cause I’m going to donate and show up for this one. Just throwing it out there. I’ll have to get back to the house as soon as it’s over, but the driveway is good for social distancing and the beverages are cold if anyone wants to hang out after.

    There is a CLUB PARTICIPATION award…might not be a bad idea to get some folks out for a few hours on Saturday

    PLEASE NOTE:

    The location has moved a few miles south on Rt.7 to :

    The John Petibone Community Center

    2 Pickett District Road, New Milford

    I guess the response was so great that they needed the extra space

    And while I still support the organizers one thing I don’t like is that tickets must be purchased in advance. The web site says that there is a suggested donation of $20, but the only way to purchase tickets is for $20. Hmmm, I just wish that they would straight up just sell tickets for $20. You can register to show your car for $20 as well, no difference.

    The only decent form of communication seems to be on social media. The only place I’ve seen the change of venue posted is on Facebook and Instagram. There is also a huge sign at the intersection where one would turn into the old location.

    Also in respect to club participation, my reading of the registration form is that the Club would have to register as a sponsor to be eligible.

    Randall,

    That is very generous. I’m sure that you could register your car for the show, and under club affiliation put the club’s name. It would increase the club’s presence on their rolls and maybe we’ll be invited next year. The place will be so crazy, they may not even realize you didn’t show up!🤣

    Club participation is the last option under class. $20 registers your car, or gets you a walk in ticket, either way it seems to be the minimum donation.

    Donated $10 because of yours and the club’s involvement and entered NMC in Club Participation.

    Thank you to the folks that showed up to this benefit car show on Saturday.  we had 8 cars grouped together….and another 5 Miatas one row over that were  not Club members…so there were a bunch of Miatas there…along with close to 400 other cars!!

     

    End of the afternoon rolls around…and we were presented with the Best Club Participation award…pretty cool

     

    Dave has some pics he took of the trophy and the cars
