When is the last time anyone in the SW has been to the Grand Canyon? Meet at the Grand Canyon Inn. Just a thought.
i just did my 21st in vegas a few weeks ago. good stuff. :lol4:it would be pretty tight if we could go to vegas in october!!!! ill be turning 21 in Oct.... on second thought i mite not survive the weekend in vegas just turnin 21 and all!!! :lol4: :headbang:
i'll try. but i'm not sure just quite yet. might be getting new apartment in next few weeks...Nice, warm weather here in Arizona... Compared to the rest of the country, anyway.
I think we should try to make this our GTG event.
It's far enough in advance to get Vacation, no real prep work to be done, It'll probably have Magazine coverage, if that's your thing. It's not Vegas, but then again, we can always do Vegas at the end of the year... arty018:
I'm going either way, so it's up to the rest of you.
hey Joe,I'm not trying to promote May Madness even though I've mentioned it in the past, in this thread. There are a lot of good ideas being "tossed into the hat", here.
For those that are serious about starting up your own event, you might want to attend this years May Madness. These folks have 15 years of experience setting up a diesel event in the Southwest. They do a good job & it draws people from all over the country. There are even two couples that tow their fifth-wheels from Maryland, each year.
Again, I'm not trying to tell anyone what to do but, one couldn't help but learn from these folks & their vast experiences in this area.
May Madness seems to have an appeal to all ages, interests & financial backgrounds. Those of us that are a bit older are more interested in towing performance. Many of the younger folks are more interested in drag racing & dyno's (although, the older folks seem to like the dyno's, as well). I've seen folks that are financially well-off, and, last year, there was a Marine that drove his first-gen. & slept in the bed of the truck, snuggled up next to his shotgun (not that he needed it with this group).
May Madness is a good time, for all &, a great opportunity to learn how to set up a successful, big-time, diesel event, if that's what you're interested in.
that dont know if im confusedOk I heard back from Eric Mcbride.
Evidently, they moved the event from Las Vegas to Salt Lake City, and have no plans in changing that, because attendance is better there.
I'm thinking we would be better off picking a weekend that has a Friday night test and tune, and just see if maybe we can set up our own events for this.
I'll step back now and let the Presidents and Vice Presidents work it out.
They should really be the ones who take the reins on this anyway. I don't want to be meddling in anyone's affairs.
